Uk 8ball Rules

Postby gazlappy » Tue Jun 21, 2011 7:48 am

Hi will vp4 have the correct world 8ball rules for pub style games, i have never found a pool game which uses these rules and as i play in a league this would be perfect.

I agree...

For the mobile version, I proposed a Custom Settings screen for 8 Ball, for example:

Ball Set
[UK] [US]

After Foul
Two Visits: [Yes] [If First Shot Missed Only] [No]
Free Table on First Shot: [Yes] [No]
Cue Ball Placement After Scratch: [Behind Head String] [In D] [Ball In Hand]
Must Play Out Of Kitchen First Shot After Foul: [Yes] [No]
Eight Ball Pocketed on Break: [Foul] [Re-rack] [Win Game]
Scratch when on Eight Ball: [Foul] [Lose Game]

Game Play:
Number Of Balls to Hit Rail for Legal Break: [?]
Call Eight Ball Pocket: [Yes] [No]
Cue Ball Must Hit Rail After Hitting Object Ball if No Ball Pocketed: [Yes] [No]

There's probably a few more. That would satisfy most people (there could be presets for certain regions/bodies/competitions).

Some time back the uk 8ball official rules were already looked into by Celeris by way of having the most up to date rules for the game for VP4.
