PURE POOL – SNOOKER DLC PATCH

October 26, 2015 |  by  |  Blog, Pure Pool  |  Comments Off on PURE POOL – SNOOKER DLC PATCH
VERSION 1.05 NOW LIVE.

Morning people, firstly, a quick thank you from VooFoo to everyone who has purchased the Pure Pool Snooker DLC pack. We value and appreciate all the feedback we have received and acknowledge that there have been a few issues that needed to be addressed. We are very pleased therefore to be able to say that an update patch is now live for both Europe and the US, this is for PS4 and Xbox One.

The following issues have been addressed:

  • Colour ball respotting fix – Colours are now respotted correctly. I.e., when respotting a colour they go back on their own spot. If that spot is occupied they go on the next highest value spot available. If ALL Spots are occupied, then they go as close as possible to their own spot.
  • Ball ‘in hand’ fix – If a player fouls and is forced to play again, they do not now get ball ‘in-hand’ option.
  • Colours respotting fix – Colours are now re-spotted in Free Play.

Thanks for your patience with this. We hope these updates are welcomed and that you continue to enjoy the game. Any issues please contact: support@voofoostudios.com

VooFoo.
