I like the game. However, as someone that has played a lot of real pool, I find one annoying issue. The quantization of the cue angle is too large to do anything fancy. Is there any reason that it couldn't be infinitely variable (no steps)?

This billiard game looks really great, but too bas i can't compile it :(. I get the following error when running configure:
"configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!"

However, I'm running a Suse 10.0 with Qt 3.3.6 (that's what YasT says), so I don't know what to do here. If maybe you have the opportunity to make a rpm for suse 10.0 i386 ^^

Thanks

I think it is a nice game but I'd like to point some things that you could improve.
- The ball must somersault while it is moving, the experience would improve a lot.
- The shoot direction may be assigned with the mouse, now it looks a bit rude.
- I've only been able to begin the power direction with Alt+spacebar, why it doesn enable just with spacebar?
- It would be nice to have a networking option :), have you planned to make it?

Bye! Nice work!

"make install" doesn't copy the kbilliards2004.kbm file into the $KDEDIR/share/apps/kbilliards/maps (and doesn't create such directory...)

...present in 0.8.1.
Well, what happens is, I try to pot a ball (doesn't matter which color or pocket) and sometimes I get an infinite loop just before the ball falls into the pocket.
it's a little different from the previous versions because now it doesn't crash every time this happens, sometimes the ball just doesn't roll into the pocket but stays still and I can continue playing, sometimes it crashes completely...

Hi, I was just wondering if a real physics engine is going to be implemented at some point, so I can play this more like I do in real life. Looks like it's coming along great, but I just can't get into it when I can't control the cue ball. Any chance spin will be supported in the future? There's a great tutorial on the physics of the game at http://www.playpool.com/apapp/download.php

Also, will the ball speed be tweaked out to be more realistic, at least in the near term? Right now it feels like playing on some $200 table from Sears rather than a $5000 Brunswick Goldcrown.

Oh, you may find some tips on the shots commonly used by pool players at http://www.azbilliards.com

Keep up the great work!

aclocal
automake

sorry there is no error on code, this problem is autotools and kdevelop related.

Nice game...
I already seen it on Dendy...
But could you add support for two players - then family's members will not kill themselves because of it...
