Xbox Live Arcade title Bankshot Billiards 2 has had an update released for it. The next time you start the game you will be prompted for an autoupdate which contains the additional 3D mode.

Here is a list of what the new patch addresses:

  • Ranked live games causing a freeze or crash
  • Player match games now show the other players aiming aid level
  • Default time for ranked mode games was changed to 60 seconds
  • When a timer expires in a live game the following player has ball in hand
  • Shot panel now shows the buttons that must be held down to activate the various features (english, spin, power)
  • 200 games achievement now given away when 200 games are played instead of won (this is inline with the description now)
  • Single player leaderboards cap the display to hours now instead of a single hour
  • Music tracks would not sync to defaults when a client quit (in certain conditions)
  • 3D camera modes

The 3D modes are accessed via the D pad during gameplay:

  • Up: Reverts to the top view camera
  • Down: Static camera (zooms out from location of shot)
  • Left: Dynamic camera (follows action)
  • Right: Cue ball camera (use the left analog stick to rotate around the cue ball and zoom in / out)
