Good news the patch is now LIVE! This is not the final update, as you know this has been in certification for nearly 3 weeks now so in that time we have improved the game further and will continue to do so going forward! We realise there will still be issues remaining so please do keep your feedback coming :)

Patch One notes below: 

  • The file size has been reduced, this again is an ongoing issue but is now around 9GB which is a 4GB reduction, and will continue to try and get this down, this will be an auto update so this patch will make the overall file size smaller.

  • Next loading times... this, I will add is an ongoing issue that we will address going forward but for the initial patch we have reduced the initial loading screen, and further reduced this time once the game has been fully installed.

  • In game loading times have been reduced, this again is an ongoing issue, but we have reduced the loading times when you move between tables and game type within the same location within the same time of day. This makes swapping between game type and tables much quicker.

  • The frame rate is now 60fps and the issue with the ball speed stopping to quickly has also been addressed

  • The AI has been made easier, so you can play through the career on easy and the AI will increase in difficulty as your progress but at a easier level.

  • The cameras have been addressed throughout to make them smoother and it also by popular request now follows the cue on the AI's shot. (This is something that we will continuously improve on as the game develops)

  • Snooker rules suggestions have been implemented to show your current break, nominate a colour, the tables are green, the points updated and a number of other tweaks based on community feedback to make it easier to play.

  • The Trickshot editor has also been updated to include particle effects (fire and fireworks), you now earn points for a good shot, a clear object icon so you know which object you are highlighting and a general update to make it better and more fun. Challenges are coming soon too...

  • The Achievement glitches fixed on No aims and are now easier to achieve

  • Endurance, on easy has also been made easier as the difficulty level should suggest, which hopefully should make a great starting point for everyone to see how long you can last! The cameras have been updated also to make this a quicker movement between shots, remember to get a good steak, always plan ahead...
  • Finally a general polish to make menus easier, online stability and a few other issues raised by the community. 

Thank you for your patience we will try to get the next patch too you ASAP which *spoiler alert* includes a NEW online mode! Watch this space for more info...
