Sample Tournament

The Scoring Program includes a Sample Tournament for testing purposes. I find it is useful to have a completed tournament for testing the post tournament results, so we put one together this year. Once downloaded, just unzip it onto your system and then open that tournament in the scoring program.

Older Operating System Versions Not Tested

Your program development team no longer has systems running Windows NT, Vista or 2000, and the scoring program has NOT been tested on those versions of Windows by the development team.

If you intend to score a tournament using one of these older operating systems, it is your responsibility to test the program thoroughly and report any problems you find by sending them to Manny Alvarez. Please also let us know if your testing indicates that the program runs fine, so that we can update this web page.

If you test on a platform other than the supported Windows platforms or Mac OS X, please let us know what you find so that we can update this web page.

Linux not supported

Your program development team does not have the resources to support use of the program on Linux. We have received word that it mostly works there, with problems printing. But if you choose to try it there by extracting the scoring.jar file from the Windows or Mac kit, you are completely on your own!
