Do you have to hit the solid or stripe balls? Why does it deduct 25 points everytime you hit a ball?? Help??
ETA- Hey! I have 500 extra points?? How did that happen? Does signing up for a tournament grant points??
I had 500 extra points too. It might be for being in #1 place for a game? Not sure.
So far as 8 ball. I've only played it a few times. But the first ball that either you or the computer get into the pocket becomes your colour. Say the computer gets one of the striped balls into a pocket, they then have to shoot striped balls and you get the plain ones. If you happened to get the first ball into a pocket, you would then shoot at whatever type of ball you sunk.
Apparently if the computer sinks the white ball, you get to move the white ball wherever you want. Left click in the faint square that surrounds the white ball and drag it to your desired position.
To shoot at a ball you left click on the pool cue and drage it backwards and then let go. The cue springs forward and hits the ball in it's path.
If you are supposed to be shooting striped balls and when you shoot you accidently hit the computers plain coloured one first, you lose your turn and the computer gets their turn. If the computer hits one of your balls first, then it loses a turn and you get to shoot.
The idea is to get all of your balls into the pockets, pick a pocket to shoot the 8 ball into and then try and get it into that pocket. If you do you win. If you don't the computer gets a turn and it will sink it guaranteed.
Hope that helps
