I think someone's discovered a cheat - and I can prove it (sorta!)

It's just this has happened to me a few times now. Example One. Black on side cushion. White touching black but in front of black so white, black, cushion are all in a straight line in front of you. So no way to sink the black not counting some kind of double. We're both on the black. Suddenly the screen jumps, the cueball's magically in a MUCH more advantageous position for the other guy and he casually sinks the black as if he'd been setup all along.

Example Two. I'm on black. I sink black. There's a L-O-O-O-N-G pause - then black is either mysteriously back on table or he gets the game even though I've just legit. sunk the black!

Example Three. Lots of balls on the table. I'm all lined up on (say) the next three shots. I take a shot and sink a ball. There's another L-O-O-O-N-G pause - and all the balls on the table 'jump' to different positions, far more advantageous to the other guy. Even though I've just sunk a ball it's somehow the other guy's shot - and he cleans up or sinks a bunch of balls when it shouldn't even have been his turn.

What's going on? Like... I have one of the above happen to me about every six-seven games. Not that it matters THAT much cos I'm not very good anyway but I don't see how they're doing it. (No, I wouldn't do it if I knew how, I'm not a cheat!)

Yours puzzledly

Chris.

    So whats the point of this to let other people know? Other people might start using it. I would pm a mld or admin, this discussion might get removed

    He didn't say anything revealing. Just reported bugs. And they are bugs because everyone has experienced them.

    This happens to me a lot. Is this a cheat or a glitch? I can't find much about it on the forums.

    Hello and welcome to the forum.... :)

    This is the thread you are looking for:

    http://www.miniclip.com/social/8-ball-pool/forum/en/#/discussion/26431/hackers-glitchers-in-pc-version-of-game

    Not that it will help you all that much....but it is a known issue and open to debate as to whether it is a glitch or possible nefarious activity....

    Thanks.
    Nothing to do then but suck it up. Even if I get a screenshop of their profile Miniclip won't do anything just on my word that they might have cheated

    That's correct. It has happened to me several times - I can't seem to win any of d games, even when I am leading in the game. It's not so fair!

    This is not a "cheat"... This is most likely related to your connection speed. The cue ball being rearranged in a more favorable position is simply due to your missed shot and him having "ball in hand".

    As for having "all the balls on the table 'jump' to different positions, far more advantageous to the other guy", I have not ever seen this before, but judging by the length of the "long pauses" I have experienced, even if this was a "cheat", those pauses aren't sufficient to be able to rearrange each ball to different positions that are "far more advangageous"....

    A screenshot would not help, but you can record what is happening on screen then forward that to MiniClip. That would provide them with enough information to go on!

    If it has happened to you "several" times but you can't win "any" of the games, then you've got issues that aren't related to cheats...
