Is any one interest in an ebuild for FooBillard :?:

It's a 3d game 8ball,9ball,snooker and carambol with sound and nice graphics.

Still under development but already playable to a large extent. You can read reviews for the game Here

I've written an ebuild which works for me, and going to submit it. If you're interested, let me know.

Agreed! I'm up for any game that says "network play"!

Well that worked perfectly

The graphics are very nice, just don't know yet how the controls work :)

But I had no problems whatsoever installing it, so thanks for this great ebuild mksoft!

And _please_ if you find any time to make some other ebuilds of great games or other stuff ... please do so! :)

You can hit F1 during play to get help on the controls.
The ebuild installs README which contains the controls as well in /usr/doc/foobillard.

You're welcome. I already see that I need to change it, must add dependency on libpng. But you had it installed (I guess everyone will, but still needs to be added) and it worked :)

Gonna submit it tonight.

I'm gonna submit it tonight to bugzilla. Can't say how long it's gonna take to have it in the portage tree - this is up to the maintainers.

As you say no sound. FooBillard can handle snooker as well while BillardGL can't (AFAIK). That is the reason I wanted an ebuild for FooBillard.

I have it on the LinuxFromScratch partition and really missed it on Gentoo :D

I have submitted the eBuild Script for BillardGL 1.75 last week. This still hasn't made into the portage tree, wonder why?
The script is here: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3628
The textures are brand new and look extremely good.
Enjoy!

Personally I'd prefer BillardGl above fooBillard (I tested them both). The camera is much smoother and the physics seem to be a little more accurate.

When I checked out the forum at:
http://www.billardgl.de/index-en.html
they announced that sound and network play will be the next tasks as soon as the guys are finished with their diploma thesis.

On these pages you are able to download language packs as well.
AFAIK BillardGl is the only pool game thas is running under Windoze, MacX and Linux.

Snooker and Carom are planned, Computer opponent seems to take a while.

Thanks for the info. BillardGL sure looks nice, but I can't live without a computer opponent :(

The ebuild finally made it into portage. 10 days after submitted, seems reasonable :)
