Drawshot Follow-through

Post by ScratchShark » Mon Jun 14, 2010 12:33 pm

Does the ball have to be hit with the cue and "snapped" like in real life pool? Does the mouse stroke, after contacting the ball, make any difference in the shot if it is struck very low on the ball? It seems the the cue stick disappears after the instant the cue tip hits the ball, so how can there be follow-through, or lack of it, when "snapped"? Does the game still read the mouse movement and use it after the ball is hit?

That would very good if it did in vp4 (I know it doesn't in vp3).

Im pretty sure that on this forum steve chaplin has mentioned about follow through on the shot and some kind of introduction,but that was more to improve the gameplay and also incorporate the push shot foul.
Whether its been 100 percent confirmed yet i dont know,no doubt he will read this at some point and reply.

Still yet to be determined. Trying to control the cue stick as in real life with a mouse would be not be a good idea, too clumsy, and would make the game play poorly, but we may do something with the follow through and when the cue disappears.

OK, I didn't think that you had to "halt" the mouse to put draw on the ball, and I have always said to my brother jclane2001, that I didn't think that it needed to be done to get draw on the ball. It will help me learn to get better control of my draw shots in VP3 and/or VP4. Thanks
