Bytten Reviews 3D Pool Pro
The excellent Independant Games website Bytten has recently published a comprehensive review of 3D Pool Pro. Bytten is a small, independantly run games website that does a surprising number of reviews on an extremely wide variety of independant games. You'll see reviews of games on this site that you likely wouldn't find anywhere else on the internet. With a new in-depth review every single week, there's always something interesting to read on Bytten.
The feel of the game is just about perfect, better than any other pool game I've played. The mouse controlled cue action really gives the player a feel for the weight of the ball.
3D Pool Pro is a good pool game that does what a pool player would expect in a way that a computer gamer would appreciate.

Optimized for NVidia
Due to some additional bugs being discovered, the release of version 1.5 of 3D Pool Pro has been delayed until all problems can be ironed out. The development has been entirely performed on NVidia Geforce video cards, namely the GeForce 2, 4, FX 5200, and FX 5600. These cards have shown no graphical bugs, however any bug reports, especially those from players using ATI cards would be highly appreciated. Hopefully all bugs will be addressed within the next week or so. However, in the meantime, for those experiencing the "disappearing menu" bug, this is a known bug on some older video cards. After playing a match and returning to the menu, the menu may disappear after a few seconds. This only happens in full screen mode. The best way to avoid this bug is to use the menus in windowed mode, and then switch back to fullscreen when the game starts. Fullscreen / Windowed modes may be toggled at any time by using the Alt+Enter keys.
Internet and LAN Support Under Development
Currently under development, version 1.5 of 3D Pool Pro will support further options for playing friends and family, as well as new friends over the internet! Supporting networked play between two computers over a local network or the Internet, the new version makes use of VideoWork's all-new "PeerSpy"TM player matching technology to help players find opponents in the same room, or across the world. The new version will be beginning private beta-testing by the end of this week, and is scheduled for a release within two weeks. Current registered users will be provided with a private link by email where they will be able to download an upgrade.
