Key F3 on the Options Menu controls the difficulty level with these computer billiards games rules.

There are four difficulty levels: in the first three, the Snooker table has 6 pockets and a ball must be potted into a pocket. In the fourth, the snooker table has no pockets.

Before beginning his turn, each player may choose the impact, angle and spin to be used. The function of each key will become clearly apparent once one knows how to play billiards games rules and begins to shot. If a key with no function is pressed, a help screen will appear containing all possible options of the billiards games rules.

A brilliant computer billiards tip is the F9 function key, with which the computer will suggest a shot - maximum three -, and F10 which saves the game at a specific stage, allowing the game to be loaded with Alt-F10 or F6 from the Options Menu.

Although it would be possible to play without a mouse, of course, the choice of angle, impact and spin is much easier with it. A small amount of practice will be enough to see how it works. Nevertheless, it is useful to note that placing the mouse pointer below the sports billiards players' names on the screen, and clicking the left mouse button makes a shot.

Another billiards tip, the Tab key forces the computer billiards players to shot without further delay, except in Tournament and in the BEEPS Cups.

The billiards games rules of the computer game are the usual ones and all actions are automatically controlled.

Only one game or a tournament can be saved at a specific moment and it replaces the previously saved game or tournament.

There are two BEEPS Cups. The number 1 or 2 appears in the red ball in the top left-hand corner of the screen. The second Cup can only be loaded from the Options Menu, it begins in a higher level and help function is not available. To add a new player, just highlight the players' column and press Enter, then type the desired name.

In BEEPS Cup, when choosing a game, the program selects a computerised player as the opponent and a level of difficulty depending on the amount of points accumulated by the human player. As such the more points one has, the better the computer player will be.

The maximum score is 200 points, 20 for French Billiards, 40 for each of the Esnuka games and 30 for Snooker and Pool.
