How To Change 8 Ball Pool Game Controls?

A mouse is all you need to play 8 Ball Pool game. You direct the cue stick with the mouse and adjust the striking intensity also with the mouse. BlueStacks allows you to use the left and right mouse buttons for both. However, if you are a master billiard player, you also know how important the cue angle and cue stick type are. By default, W and E keys are used for these two functions. You can change the cue ball setting by pressing the W key and press the E key to open the menu that shows the cue stick types you can use. To be honest, you don’t need any other keys: 8 Ball Pool is a game that you can play with only three keys.

You can use your mouse to move the cue stick.

However, it is possible to change these controls if you want. For example, you may want to use the arrow keys to control the cue stick, not the mouse. BlueStacks allows you to do this easily. You will see a question mark icon on the right sidebar, click it to see the default controls. On this screen, you can assign a different button for each function by pressing the “edit” button in the lower right corner. Don’t forget to click the “save” button when you’re done. On the same screen, you can also watch a video showing how you can play the game on BlueStacks.

Don’t forget to hit the save button after assigning new keys. Otherwise, the changes will not be saved.

You are now ready to become a master billiard player. We recommend that you practice playing against the computer first, and then challenge real players after gaining enough experience. Since each table and game will be unique, it is unfortunately not possible to record and repeat your strikes with the Macro Recorder, but you still have a serious advantage: You can use your mouse to aim. In this way, you can make more accurate strikes compared to your opponents. In other words, BlueStacks allows you to use the best control tools you need to become a professional billiard player.
