Save backup for career play:
In "career", play the game saves your progress automatically. However, this
causes undesirable situations, as when you lose 1500 or more to a Boss like
the Hammer. The game offers no way to save the game before playing a new
CPU player. If you lose, you are usually out of luck. Use the following
trick will to save the game before you play a new CPU player. This allows
you to play him or her again without losing your money. Make a new folder
in your "virtual pool 3" folder and name it "save backup". Copy the "vpc
data" folder and the file "vp save.vpx" into this new folder. Do this just
before you play a Boss. Every time you defeat a new CPU player, quit the
game and backup the "vpc data" folder and "vp save.vpx" file again, letting
Windows overwrite the older files. If you lose to the CPU, just copy the
contents of your "save backup" folder back into the main "virtual pool 3"
folder, and let Windows overwrite the files. Restart the game and you will
be back to where you last saved the game with all your money. To make this
quicker, keep your "virtual pool 3" folder open on your Windows Desktop
while playing the game.
Watch the movies:
All the movies are located in a directory on the CD. You can simply play
the movies to watch them. A good one to watch is the outtakes movie, which
shows some bloopers.
