    OK, now where’s a good place to get 3D glasses?

    Along those lines, does anyone know if there is support for LCD shutter glasses under X? I’m talking about the ones that connect to the VGA port.

    but I think that the cushions are too low. You can see this in the way the balls don’t change spin when they rebound off the sides – the spin should reverse as well but you can see the ‘before bounce’ spin carrying on after the collision. Friction gets the spin back to where it should be after a sec or so.

    Still, I prefer this version to BillardGL – it feels closer to a real pool game.
