Continuing the discussion from Philly Regionals (June 20) Discussion Zone™:
(this was about ANR Tournament software)
Tested this bug today in the morning, messaged software creator about it, new version released today, I can no longer reproduce the bug so seems it is fixed. Thanks for making me aware of this, as finding this out the hard way when I TO a Regionals on Saturday would definitely give me some problems.
More generally: what software do you use when running tournaments? I use ANR Tournament all the time, works perfectly for small tournaments, I rarely run events with super byes and top cut so I was not aware of the abovementioned bug which is luckily fixed. I like the fact that it doesn't require exotic hardware (iPads etc) and it has really great developer support - every time something was bugged or tournament rules changed fixes were really quick. It also allows adding new identities to the list by yourself, so whenever a pack is released it is easy to update the program.
Also, I've heard of new FFG software tested in the USA - what do you think about it? I've heard that software they used during Worlds 2014 was really bad, did it improve a lot?
