    ne help..

    I know this is probably a really really hard program to make but ...

    theres a yahoo pool aimer you download, and can use it so aim lines go right to the pockets for perfect shots each time, is there anyway to make a small program so when you play someone using it, it detects it and tells you?

    let me know. reece.

    Just work out how the program does the calculation, write a program on your machine to calculate the same values for the shot. If the shots being made by the opponent are exactly the same as the ones your program calculated, it's an extremely good indication they're using such a program.

    It can be detected just like any other hack is detected. The program would have to reach for variables that it needs such as location of the other balls for collision detection. These are something that a person can see, but a progam would have to break the process of the game and access the exact locations of the balls on the table. Think of an aimbot on a videogame, the hack knows the location of the opponents just the same way the game does.
