Hello,

so to get this straight, when you start the game, if you don't move your mouse it's fine. The camera smoothly moves into position correctly and the graphics look ok. Does the screen go blank when you move the mouse or only when you drag a button to move the view point around? That sounds like a physics-related matter. I assume you installed the game from the arch package. In that case is there a way to find out how ODE is configured. I see that the Billiards package depends on ode-compat so presumably it's somehow different compared to the normal ODE package. ODE needs to be configured with double precision for anything to work. Perhaps it was configured with single precision or perhaps it is an outdated version.

Apart from that could you try running the game without the GUI by typing billiards on the console and with cel shading by typing billiards -Otoon to see if that makes any difference at all?

I am running Arch Linux x86_64, 4GB RAM, GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512Mb using nvidia 295.53 drivers.

Billiards v0.4.1
Techne 0.2.3
lua 5.1.5

After I launch the browser and select any of the games (8/9 Ball or pocketless billiars), the game window goes gray after a few moments. Specifically, just the graphics portion, if I enable fps display that can be seen fine. Another curious thing if I do not provide any input the graphics remain fine, but only upon some input, as I am trying to move the view to select a ball it goes gray. I see no error messages in the console, and attaching a screenshot. Please let me know if any other info is needed. Glad to help. :)
