Download DD Solver Version 12.83d

12.83d Now when you download team games from BBO, the results will include bidding and play in the Closed Room. It appears that BBO is only saving results for two weeks so you will need to download more frequently than once a month.

12.83c Ditto!

12.83b Bug fixed on Team Scores.

12.83a With this new version the results from both rooms of team games can be downloaded and stored in the SQL file. You can even see the play, trick by trick. The data for the "other" room is downloaded and stored when you go to Team Scores and select the desired match. Thus, the 2nd time you select a match, the results will already be stored and the process will be faster.  I've also added a "Par" column to the right.

12.83 With all the changes at BBO recently, I've taken this opportunity to completely retool the BBO download process. I hope this new process works smoother and faster but with all changes, some bugs may need swatting. If you encounter ANY problems with DDS, please contact me. I've also added a new feature to download the "Closed Room" results for all BBO IMP Team games. Click on the menu item Team Scores. You will also be able to access the Closed Room results, including bidding and play, directly from the Main Screen with the Table button.

Many thanks to Moshe for completely translating all of DDS into Hebrew. תודה

12.82 A new File menu item - Save entire file for Jack - has been added. This creates PBN files that are readable with Jack even though they don't exactly follow the PBN standard. The File menu link - Download Results -has bee repaired. There is a new Option that allows you to see very simple cards rather than pictures. The Card Style Symbol option is beneficial if you use a high Scale and Layout percentage (greater than 175%) that results in pixelated cards.
