Note the date on this thread... it's very old! This was the first thing I ever made in Construct. Thread necromancy courtesy of Zanuff.
The source .cap no longer exists, but here is the .exe if you want to take a look:

When I say "basic" I mean it. It's rather no-frills, but it runs pretty well, and is actually pretty accurate. The table is just about to scale... I think. I tried, anyway. If your angle is good you should be able to sink shots pretty easily. It helps if you're good at pool in real life
Aim your shot with the mouse. Click to shoot. Choose your shot strength with the buttons located at the bottom.
Scratching the cue ball will place it back at it's default position. Sinking the eight ball restarts the application.
This represents about two day's work, most of that was tweaking the ball size and re-drawing the sprites a hundred times to match the new size. I might make a real, full game with rules and an AI opponent in the future, but for now I'm done with it. If anybody wants to tweak it to get more realistic ball movement or whatever, please post your results.
