NAME billard-gl - OpenGL billiards game
SYNOPSIS billard-gl [options]
DESCRIPTION This manual page documents the billard-gl program. This manual page was written for Debian because the original program does not have a manual page. billard-gl implements a game of 8- or 9-ball billiards, which you can play against the computer or a friend. The general idea of billiards is to hit the coloured balls with the cue ball in such a way that these balls fall in one of the six pockets of the table.
OPTIONS -f -fullscreen switches to fullscreen mode (can currently not be changed from inside billard-gl itself) -f -windowed switches to windowed mode (default; can currently not be changed from inside bil‐ lard-gl itself) -t VALUE texture size for the balls. Valid values are 1 for full size textures, 2 for half size textures, 4 for quarter size textures, and 8 for eighth size textures. -tt VALUE texture size for the table. Valid values are 1 for full size textures, 2 for half size textures, 4 for quarter size textures, 8 for eighth size textures, and 0 for no textures. -at VALUE texture size for the display. Valid values are 1 for full size textures and 2 for halfsized textures. -g VALUE ball geometry; odd numbers >= 3. Higher values create more complex geometry. To run billard-gl with minimum settings, try billard-gl -t 8 -tt 0 -at 2 -g 3 or for maximum settings, try billard-gl -t 1 -tt 1 -at 1 -g 11 All of the options are configurable from within billard-gl itself, unless stated other‐ wise.
