Version 3.2.3.0

Physics Changes

- Corrected a problem where cue ball on pocket edge moves to center of table

Misc Changes

- On a snooker break and a foul occurs and the opponent passes the turn back, the break statistics did not reset to zero
- Snooker longest run was not being recorded
- Using amplify during ball in hand allows moving the cue ball through other balls and if another key was pressed while moving the cue ball, it could be dropped inside another ball
- Corrected sound bug where pocket sounds would occur when rails or table top was hit
- Added a L (left) or R (right) to the left of players name for One Pocket to show which pocket the player owns
- Fixed bug where Move Ball could not be remapped to mouse buttons

Version 3.2.2.5

Misc Changes

- Fix problem where bowlliards break was at reduced power

Online Changes

- Attempted to fix problem where challenge room game setup changes
- Changed double click game load to not work when online

Physics Changes

- Adjusted rail reverse effect that was added in 3.2.2.3. The effect was too severe and happened at velocities that were too low making double banks not open up enough.

- Fixed bug where object ball hitting inside edge of side pocket suddenly accelerated
- Fixed bug where ball in corner pocket would not be counted as pocketed

Version 3.2.2.3

Rule Changes

- Fixed Straight Pool bug where an object ball hit off the table resulted in BIH in kitchen. It should be a foul but no BIH.
- Fixed problem where in rare instances low ball hit foul was called even though the low ball was hit. This was seen most often in Snooker when shooting colours but could happen in any game where a low ball hit is required.

Online Changes

- Fix turn change in Billiards. Ball colors did not change properly when turns were changed for the other player or spectators

Physics Changes

- Made balls cleaner so the throw less
- Redo of the rail model. Previous model was not well balanced and had errors in ball paths. Multiple rail shots did not respond properly and were overly sensitive to speed and English.
