getting started - setting up and start a Super League match

Darts for Windows can be used for Super League singles. DfW supports teams from 3 to 12 playing best of x number of legs pr. set/match.
To setup Super League teams, we start by adding the team names ann the players to the database. Click this link to learn how to add team names and players to the database.
Press CTRL-P on the keyboard to open the "Add new players and teams" screen.
When we have all the players and team names we need in the database, we can start to setup the Super League teams.
We start by switching the mode to "Super League" (see picture below)

SL mode

As you can see, the players are now visible on the right side. In my sample I'm going to setup two 8 players team, Stockton Nelson and Coventry Bishopsgate. In the picture you can see that the number of players are set to 7. We now need to change this value to 8 to be able to add 8 players to each team.

8 players


We can now start to add players to the team. You don't have to set the team name before you start. As soon as the first player has been added to the team, the team name changes to the same team as the first player added.

dragdrop

If you want to change the display name of the team (if the team is for example a "B" team), change the text in the "Display" box.

Example:
Team: Stockton Nelson
Display: Stockton Nelson B

Continue to add the players to the team by draging and dropping or double clicking in the players list until the team is complete.

Team ok

When the team is complete, click the "Save" icon in the toolbar.
