About BillardGL:

BillardGL is an OpenGL pool billiard simulation, which was developed within the scope of our course "Computergraphics" at the University of Freiburg (Germany).

© Stefan Disch, Tobias Nopper und Martina Welte.

Details about this version:

Special build.

It's required Haiku nVidia TNT/GF driver (http://bebits.com/app/3636) and nVidia TNT/GF 3D driver Alpha2 final (http://bebits.com/app/4129) from Rudolf Cornelissen.

The package includes the corrected version of library GLUT 3.7 in which missing functions were added.

it looks like a great game?sadly it's painfuly slow without h/w acceleration.but i have a very slow machine "celeron"too ,maybe with a dual core it'll be a bit playbal?
hopefuly someone will bring us a new version with sound.this ver has no sound.

The problem is Haiku only has Mesa software driver for OpenGL. This driver is very slow. You can only get 1 to 5 FPS on almost any system you try which is unplayable.

Back on BeOS, there was a 3D driver for TNT/Geforce 1&2 cards which gave basic hardware acceleration. I was able to run Stellarium at 50-60 FPS on BeOS with GF2 MX card and Geforce2 3D driver.

3D OpenGL games on Haiku are not worth playing until either a) gallium llvmpipe driver and/or b) hardware OpenGL driver for video card!

Patience, when aljen finished native implementation DRM and DRI, then we will very powerful 3D hardware in Haiku.
Unfortunately aljen working on this alone and it requires time.

Works with the new mesa GL driver but very slow...
only 2fps here on a P4 core2 system...

was at 15fps with p3 300Mhz with BeosMax... and a Geforce card

thanks to the new mesa it's already somewhat playable! with a dual core 2.8Ghz i'm getting 16 fps with a vga res:
great work alex!
