A new rare database has been added to the download section, PDC World Darts Championship 2002. The database contains all the scores and stats from the final, the first round match John Part-Mick Manning + the complete draw sheet with all the results. I have also corrected the averages on the PDC World Darts Championship 2002 Wikipedia page, both the averages for the finals and the John Part-Mick Manning were wrong. The Part-Manning match was very nasty, too low average on both players, especially Mick Manning, 12 points too low, that is a lot.

    A new version has been released. The live score function has been rewritten to be able to handle the data when the web server running the live scoring is overloaded. It has not been tested since the server is only overloaded during BICC weekends, but it will hopefully work. The Super League "match chain", chain 2 or more Super League matches to act as one single match, fex. pairs and singles in the same match, has also been added, but it is still in beta. All stats and log screens has had a new filter added, filter by date. I have also added preview and PDF support to a lot of the reports in DfW. I have also fixed some minor, non critical, bugs in various functions. Click this link to view the screenshots of the Super League Match Chain on Facebook.

More than 35.000 users visited the live scoring page, 20.000 on Sunday. I wish that the counties stopped multiple live scoring from the same match as it will slow down my server a lot, one live score pr. match should be more than enough.

    A new tutorial is now available, "How to send order of play to the live score page in County, Super League and Celtic Cup matches".

    I have just dicovered a serious bug when you do a "Restore match". Whatever points you got left in a leg, DfW will start from 501. This is caused by the change of compiler (I have upgraded the development tool to the latest version, but it is not bug free), I upgraded about a week ago and I did not notice until today that the new compiler introduced a new bug. The 2.8.5.2 version has been downloaded almost 5.000 times, but it looks like I am the only one who has discovered this bug.
    The bug has been found and fixed, download, unzip and overwrite the original file in the C:DartsforWindows folder. Click here to download the bug fixed exe file.

    A new version of Darts for Windows has been released. Changelog can be found on the DfW Facebook page.
    The live score tutorial will be updated with the info on how to publish the order of play to the live score in BICC, Super League and Celtic Cup matches.

    I have had some reports that you will have to reactivate DfW when you install the new version. I have installed it myself on my Windows 7 computer and I was not asked to reactivate so I do not know why some are asked to reactivate and some are not. The latest DfW version has been compiled using Embarcadero Delphi XE3, the previous versions were compiled using Embarcadero Delphi XE so there may be some changes in the compiler. Sorry for the trouble, but as I long as I am not able to reproduce it on my own computer, there is nothing I can do.
    If you are having problems with reactivating, RIGHT click the DfW icon and select "Run as administrator" and then everything should be ok.

    10:00 CET

    I will release yet another new version in a day or two. The new version have a couple of bug fixes in the "autoplay" function and also a fix for the memory leak when restoring/resuming a match.
    I have also added the option to play set matches showing the number of total legs won instead of the number of sets won. I know that this format is used by at least one league. They have 5 players pr. team playing all 5 legs pr. set and the total number of legs won counts instead of the number of sets won.

    22.01.2013
    22:20 CET

    It may be a bug in the 2.8.5.0 version. While playing a set match today I had problems entering the score after a few sets. I have debugged DfW and found a small memory leak who could fill a random number into one of the functions who checks if the score entered is valid if you restore/resume a match. I will rewrite the code to prevent the memory leak and release a new version as soon as I am 100% sure that everything works ok. It may not be a problem, but I want to make sure everything is ok.

    21.01.2013
    19:25 CET

    A new DfW version has been released. I have created a tutorial for the new match setup screen who explains all the settings, new and old. The new version fixes a bug when playing all legs in a set. Handicap has also been introduced (see new tutorial below). Added a separate screen for Six Nations stats. Added new layout to PDF print in the Averages by match screen. Added option to save alpha list of players in a draw to PDF and also upload to webserver using FTP.

    Looks like "Triples" will be available in the next version of DfW. I have worked hard the last few days and it looks like most problems (and bugs) has been solved. It is always risky to implement new formats because you will always introduce new bugs, but I do hope it will work rather ok in the first release. I have also changed the 3001 format limit in DfW to 10001.

    A new DfW version has been released. The most significant change in this version is the Round the Board on Doubles game who has been added to the brand new "Practice" menu. I will add more games to this menu later. Playing against the computer will also be added to this menu to make it a little easier and faster to setup a match against the computer.
    Round the Board on Doubles is played using the same rules as they use in the British Pentathlon. You can play RTBoD as a single player or two players.
    Here are the rules:
    Starting at No.1 and then 2 and so on, finishing at 20. Each player will be allowed 42 darts. If a player finishes before he has used his 42 darts, the amount of darts left will count as extra points. Each double will count as 2 points.
    Example: Player finishes on 34 dart then he gets 40 + 8 = 48 points. Player still needing say double 16 and has used up his 42 darts, then his score will be 30 points.

    Other changes:
    Expanded the maximum number of groups in Round Robin from 32 to 128.
    Print alpha list of players in a Round Robin.
    When using DfW for Super League matches for example (or any other pairs/teams match) and you have put in the same team name many times because of different order of play, DfW now sorts the teams in all lists from the newest to the oldest. This is to make sure the topmost team is the newest when selecting teams when you start a new match.

    The traffic on this website is very heavy during live scoring from Lakeside. Even starting Darts for Windows is slower than normal if your pc is connected to the internet. DfW checks for new versions when you start DfW and the check is done on the same server as the live score. If you are activating a DfW license, you may get a time-out error if you are activating during live scorig from Lakeside.

    I am in Spain until January 15. I have a 64 kbit internet connection, but I will be out most of the day. If you buy a license, it may take longer than normal before you have access to the activation code.

    A new matchtype, Super League Pairs, has been added to the next version of DfW. "Super League Pairs" is a team of pairs. DfW will support 3 to 12 pairs pr. team, the default setting is 4 pairs pr. team. The default gameformat when playing a "Super League Pairs" match is 1001, 4 pairs pr team playing best of 1 leg pr set (match). Later I will add the option to link a "Super League Pairs" match to a "normal" Super League match so you can print all stats and so on in one go. I know that there are a lot of different Super League formats so the new option may not be perfect for all users, but I do hope that some (Essex) will find it useful :)

    I am getting sick and tired of all those emails I send who does no reach the recipients. Once again I am having trouble with ISPs who blocks my e-mails or tag them as spam. I have started to send two copies of the activation code from two different e-mail accounts every time a customer buys a license to make sure the customer gets the code, but that is not enough because a lot of times BOTH e-mails are blocked.
    I have never sent out a single spam in my whole life. If you have registsred your serial number and you are waiting for the activation code, please check your junk mail folder. To activate DfW, you dont even need the e-mail with the activation code, if the code has been uploaded to the license server you will be able to activate by just clicking the link in the nag screen I am a registered user-Activate my license and enter the same name you put in when you registered the serial number. I always upload the activation code as soon as I receive the order (if I am at work, sometimes it MAY take an hour or two depending on the time zone).

I always upload the activation code as soon as I receive the order (if I am at work, sometimes it MAY take an hour or two depending on the time zone). I only work 16 hours a day so please be patient.

    From time to time I am having trouble with customers who does not register their license number after purchase. The only way I can create a activation code is by knowing your correct e-mail address and the Darts for Windows serial number from the demo/trial version. A lot of my customers are using outdated e-mail addresses at PayPal and they therefore does not receive the autorespond with the registration instructions from me when they purchase a license and at the same time I am not able to contact the buyer because they do not read e-mails from the outdated or non existing accounts. All copies of DfW has a unique serial number and there is no way I can know or guess this number. You will not receive a different or "full" version of DfW when you purchase a license, because the demo/trial version is the full version, but it will have to be activated to enable all functions and also remove limitations set in the demo/trial version.

    If you are not sure what to do to if you want to purchase a license, this is what you do:

    1. Download the demo/trial version by clicking the big red button on the top left side of this page.
    2. Install the demo/trial version on the correct computer (the license is locked to ONE single computer).
    3. Click the "Buy now" button on the rigth side.

    After you have paid by credit card or by using a PayPal account, go to http://www.dartsforwindows.com/paid.html and register the DfW serial number and you will receive the activation code and instructions from me as soon as I have created and uploaded the code. The code generation and upload are done MANUALLY so if I am not available at the time you purchase a license, it may take from a few minutes to a few hours before you will receive the activation code by e-mail.

    PLEASE CHECK YOUR JUNK/SPAM MAIL FOLDER IF YOU ARE WAITING FOR THE ACTIVATION CODE, MY E-MAILS MAY BE TAGGED AS SPAM FOR SOME REASON

    The "speed registration" of player names has been implementet in the "Add players and teams" screen in the next version of DfW. This will make it a lot faster to register players in DfW. It is also very handy if you copy and paste names from a different application, text file or spread sheet for example. DfW will split the names into first and last names for you, if the split was not as expected, the first and lastnames can be edited after the player(s) has been saved to the database. To register a player using the "speed registration", all you have to do is to select the team name for the player (or "No Team") and fill in the "Full name" input box and then press the ENTER key and the player will be saved to the database intstantly when you press the ENTER key. When using the "Full name" box to register the players, there is no need to click the "New/clear" button in the tool bar, DfW will do the work for you. If you prefer to use the "First name" and "Lastname" boxes instead, a player can only be saved to the database by using the "Save" button and you can only add a new player by clicking the "New/clear" button first (as you do in the current version). I will update the tutorials on this website as soon as the new version has been released.

    I live only 15 kilometers from where the bomb went off in Oslo yesterday, luckily I was not in the office when the bomb went off. My office is located just a few hundred meters away from the destroyed buildings. I have no internet connection at work at the moment so there may be problems caused by the terror. The massacre at Utøya is even worse, 85 young people confirmed dead and the number may rise. This is so shocking, there are almost no one outside today, it is very quiet and not mutch traffic.

    Im having a lot of trouble with my e-mails at the moment. It looks like BT and Hotmail are once again blocking my e-mails. I have answered a lot of mails who has obviously not reached their destinations since some customers are registerings the serial number over and over again (it does not help to register several times), even if I have sent the activation code by e-mail several times from different e-mail accounts. Some customer does not even register the serial number and without the serial number, I can not create the activation code simply because I dont know the serial number since it is created by random upon the first installation of the demo/trial version.
    Danny Knight, your activation code is in the database and you can activate by clicking the link"Im a registered user-Download the activation code" in DfW.
    Jason Bone, you must register the serial number from the demo/trial version here or else you will not be able to activate. I have sent you several e-mails (to both the BT address and the masonandbonedecorators.co.uk address), but no reply.

    The official 2.7.6.2 version has been released.

    A couple of new options has been added to the new DfW version, change player(s) or order of play after a County or Super League match has started and the option to list and use players of all sexes (mens, women boys and girls) in singles matches regardless of what "Playertype" DfW is set to. The match will of course be logged in the match log as the type you set it to, but you will at least have the option to let fex. boys and girls, or men and women, play eachother in singles matches without registering the girls as "Boys" and women as "Mens". A new tutorial on how to change the order or how to replace one or more players in Super League and County matches when a match is in progress has also been added. I have added an option to export draws in XML format. This is very handy for developers and webmasters who want to publish draws on their websites using their own layout. Another new option is to create single round Round Robins with the multi round Round Robin layout. The number of players pr group in a single round Round Robin has also been extented to 40 players. I find the multi round Round Robin layout a lot easier to use and maintain than the traditional "WDF" styled grid. The advantage of using the (optional) multi round Round Robin layout is that the tables are sorted on the fly. I am also in progress of publishing the RTL7 International Masters 2011 database played in Holland in March. This database will contain single round Round Robin in multi round Round Robin layout. I have also added a new options to "speed register" players. Speed registering is a simpler way of register the players in the database. You will only have to enter the players name in one single box and DfW will (try) and split the first name and last name automatically. No need to enter a team name either if you dont want to, DfW will add "No Team" as the team if no default team is selected for the player(s).

You will only have to enter the players name in one single box and DfW will (try) and split the first name and last name automatically. No need to enter a team name either if you dont want to, DfW will add "No Team" as the team if no default team is selected for the player(s).

    There is a rahter serious bug in the 2.7.6.1 version when saving matches in the "Match Editor" screen. Please download the upgrad/fix from the link below if you are planning to use the "Match Editor". The fix below does not have a new version number.
    Because I was in Denmark last week, I missed two of the four Premier League 2011 matches last Thursday because Sport1 in Germany only showed parts of the Wade-Webster match and nothing from the Taylor-Lewis match, instead they showed poker and boring commercials :(

    I have some serious trouble with my back at the moment (prolapse) and I am not able to walk or sit.

    Version 2.7.6.1 has been released. Click link below to download the new version.

    The 2.7.6.1 version fixes a bug in the game format in the draw sheet. It is now possible to hide the board and time in the draw sheet if not in use or you need the extra space. When you drag and drop a match from the match log screen into a draw sheet to assign a match to the draw sheet, you no longer need to drag and drop the match into the correct box, DfW will find the correct match if the match exists. When you search for a player in the draw sheet, DfW will highlight all occurences of the name.

    I am in Denmark from 16-23 of April. I will check my e-mail from time to time, but it may take a lot longer than normal before I respond. If you buy a license, please be patient, it may take a few hours extra before you get the activation code.

    I am working on a new DfW version with a new "engine" who will support more formats than before. The new engine will also make it a lot easier for me to add new formats in the future. The downside is that older versions of DfW will not be able to read the matchdata from databases created with the new version because of all the changes to the inner workings of DfW. This may not be a problems since all you have to do is to upgrade to the new version. I will probably release the 2.7.6.0 version as the last version with the old "engine".

    Thank you to to all the uploaders, you know who you are :)

    A new beta version has been released. The new version uses non blocking sockets when using DfW for live scoring (www/http). The advantage of using non blocking sockets is that DfW will not freeze if the internet connection is unstable or lost while posting live data to www.dartsforwindows.com.

    A new beta version has been released. The new version has some improvements and bug fixes in the single round Round Robin. When adding players to a Round Robin by clicking the button "Add players" when you have registered the exact number of players, the last player would not be put into the Round Robin, it had to be done manually by drag and drop or by double-clicking the player. this problem has been fixed. When printing a Round Robin with no results in it, DfW no longer fills the table with zeroes. This makes it perfect to use in a tournament where the players fill in the results themselves by pen. Order of play is also included in the printout. I have also added better scaling of the Round Robin printout by calculating free space on the page and then expand the grid to make it easier to read (and also to put in results by hand in a printout). Best leg and highest outshot has been added to live scoring (only the "www" part, not "FTP").

    It has been a very busy weekend and the databases has started to arrive. Click links below to download the databases in Darts for Windows format. I have also released a new beta version. The new version fixes a bug in Round Robin. It was not possible to put in more than 9 legs in the results input box in RR, no matter what the format was set to. This problem has been fixed.

    The English flag has been set to "transparent" by accident in the new beta version. This causes the flag to only show the red cross (white is transparent). Click this link to download the updated flags database. Unzip and replace the "flagsdb.flg" file in the installation directory, normally C:DartsforWindows unless you have installed the program to a different folder.

    The new beta version contains a separate database with 111 flags (british county flags and almost all WDF member countries flags). The flags are displayed in the score sheet (1 for each player) if a flag is assigned to the players team name. The flag option can of course be turned off from the "Settings" screen. It is also a separate screen for preview, adding, removing and renaming of the flags in the database.

    Over 5.000 people has followed the live scoring from the Six nations Cup 2011 today. The highest number was during the England-Netherlands match.
    Some sites has embedded the live score page from the Six Nations 2011 into their own website by using the IFRAME HTML tag without my permission. I have now added code to prevent the embedding on other sites than this one.
    There is a critical bug in the 2.7.5.6 version. If you create a new database, you wil get an error message (field not found) as soon as you enter the first score in a match. The version below also contains the new option to do live scoring from your own computer on www.dartsforwindows.com/live. Click link below to download the bug fixed version.
    Click link below to download the Six Nations Cup 2011 database. The database is 100% complete.

    Do you wonder how they do the live scoring from the Six Nations 2011 on this web site?
    Anyone can, you only need a valid DfW license to run your own live score on this page. The only requirement is an internet connection and no restrictions on port 80 on your pc (port 80 is the port for HTTP traffic or web browsing if you like). I will create a new tutorial on how to do live scoring on this web page by using the new HTTP option available from version 2.7.5.7 in Darts for Windows.

    I had to stop the web server for a minute to clear the logs. I have had just over 100.000 server requests the last 7 hours because of the live scoring so the logs are rather big.
    The live scoring page is finally working in Internet Explorer also. Took me over 8 hours to find a solution to overcome a bug in IE. Click here to follow the live scoring from The Six Nations Cup 2011.

    I am currently working on a new option in DfW, live scoring hosted by www.dartsforwindows.com. There will be a separate page on this server for live scoring. All registsred users of DfW will have their own live scoring page, and the best thing of all, no configuration has to be done in DfW, you will only need a internet connection. There will be a menu on the live scoring start page where you can see all the live scoring, past and present, on wwww.dartsforwindows.com.

    www.dartsforwindows.com and www.dartsforwin.com has been moved to a new server. The reason why I moved it was that my internet connection was simply not fast enough anymore. I have only had a download speed around 100kb the last 5 years on this server, the new server is connected to a 1 Gigabit internet line (that is 125 times faster download speed than my current line). It will probably take up to 24 hours before DNS servers are updated with the new IP address.

    A new beta version has been released. This version fixes a bug when printing the alpha list from a draw or exporting the alpha list from a draw to Excel. It also fixes a bug when sending data from the "Match details" screen to Excel. Please note that the 2.7.5.4 official release has a bug in the sound setup so if you are using the sound files from the PC game PDC World Championship Darts (Russ Bray's voice), use the version below instead. I do recommend the version below, it has many bugfixes for bugs who was introduced in the official 2.7.5.4 version. The official 2.7.5.5 version is just around the corner.
    Thank you to Andy Heaton and Ross Goyne for uploading the Youth County databases. Since the Youth pages are no longer available on the new BDO site, I can no longer create "ready to go" DfW files for the youth county matches since I don't have access to the list of fixtures and players.

    A new beta version has been released. This version fixes a mouse scroll problem in Round Robin. I have also added a button in Round Robin to fill all groups in a Round Robin with random players (automatic draw). The button is available in the "Add players to Round Robin" screen (click the button with a head and a + sign in the Round Robin toolbar).

    In case you did not know, Darts for Windows is the software used by players like Martin Adams, Raymond van Barneveld, Roland Scholten, Martin Atkins, Matt Clark and many many more well known professionals. DfW is also used by the BDO on stage on 4 monitors at Lakeside for the World Championships. This is the 5th year in a row Darts for Windows is the official scoring system for the World Championships.

    I have managed to send out all activation codes for all licenses sold during my holiday here in Portugal. There is one problem who very often occurs when I sell a lot of licenses and that is the danger of having the licenses I sent out being blocked or tagged as spam because the text in every activation e-mail is almost identical. This has happened a few times so If you have purchased a license, please check your junk mail folder if you have not received the activation instructions.

    I just discovered an article on The Daily Mail website. This is how Martin Adams prepare for a Lakeside final:
    I had an interview at ten o'clock with the BBC. After that I went back to my room. I've got a board in there so I had a quiet practice up there play against my computer in my room. I've got the darts for windows programme and that tells you how you are doing for the day, your averages. It gives you a level and an idea of how much work you might have to put in later on.
    Martin Adams has been using Darts for Windows since 1995.When Darts for Windows was relaunched in October 2005, Martin Adams was my first customer.

    Congratulations to Martin Adams and Trina Gulliver for winning the Lakeside World Darts Championships. The database is now 100% complete. Thank you to the BDO and Sue Getty for uploading the database.
    www.dartsforwindows.com and www.dartsforwin.com is very slow at the moment caused by the heavy traffic. I was totally shocked when I checked the server logs, up more than 250% from last year on the Lakeside final day.

    The Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship database is now 100% complete. The missing quarter final, Wes Newton-Terry Jenkins has been added to the database. Please note that the PDC has several errors in the averages on their web site, the database below has been checked and double chekced for errors and should be almost 100% correct. It is at least more accurate than the PDC's own stats.

    Happy new year everyone!
    I'm leaving for Portugal in one hour so I will not be able to view or record the darts today.
    I will be in Vilamoura, Portugal, from January 1st to January 15. I will probably miss most of the PDC darts on Saturday so the Ladbrokes.com database will not be 100% complete this year, unless someone else does the scoring :) On the other hand, I will not miss a single dart from Lakeside because the BDO is doing the scoring. If you buy a license in the period of January 1 to 15, it may take a few hours extra before you get the activation code so please be patient. Registering more than once does not help either since the code is generated and uploaded manually :)

    The 2.7.5.4 version has been released.

    A new beta version has been released. The biggest change in this version is not the functionality, it is in the development tool I use. I have been using Borland Delphi 7 for 11 years now, but it had to come to an end because the lack of support for all the new functions and the new eye candy stuff in Windows 7 and Vista. I have ported all the code (more than 650.000 lines) to the new development tool, Embarcadero Delphi XE. The biggest advantage unicode characters (like chinese and so on) is also the biggest disadvantage because strange things can happen to all text related functions. I have tested as much as I can, but there is no guarantee that everything is working 100% in this beta. All tests are looking good (I have had many challenges) so I am very optimistic. All development is now done on a Windows 7 pc. A few bugs has been fixed in this version. Using aero in Windows Vista and 7 will also work better than in the previous versions.

    Live scoring from PartyPoker.net European Championship 2010 will start at 20:00 CET tonight.

    There problems with the refreshing of the live score in Internet Explorer has been solved.

    I'm not able to send mail to Hotmail or Live accounts anymore from @dartsforwin.com mail accounts. Microsoft blocks all my e-mails sent to their Hotmail and Windows Live accounts for "policy reasons" (don't make sense to me...). Please use your real e-mail address when purchasing DfW. I have setup a Hotmail account so I'm still able to send the activation code to my customers :)

    I have managed to solve most of my live scoring problems in Internet Explorer. IE did not read the style sheet information from the live score HTML file I send to the web server when using a separate HTML file to load the live score file. This made the live score look very dull in IE (no problems in Firefox). Normal live score using the default score.html file did work without any problems, but because the live score may stop because the web browser may try to read the HTML file while it is being uploaded, I decided to create an option to use a separate HTML file to force the live score to reload if it fails to load the first time. Another advantage using a separate HTML file to read the live score data is that you can modify this file and put in your own logo, links or whatever to personalise your live scoring. I will update the live score tutorial and also publish a new DfW version later today if I get the time.

    The PDC PartyPoker.net European Championship Live Score database will be available later tonight.

    A new beta version will be released later this week. The new version will have improved live scoring using Ajax technology making the refresh of the data in the web browser seamless. The live score page will also be reloaded automatically within 13 seconds if it fails to load for some reason (requires a separate HTML file to be uploaded to the web server). Timezone information has also been added to the timestamp. At the moment, the live scoring works very well in Firefox, but I have some problems with Internet Explorer.

    The StanJames.com World Matchplay 2010 database has been updated with the semi-finals and the ladies final.

    I noticed on the PDC website that Phil Taylor's average is not the same as mine. I recorded the match on my HD so I had to browse though the whole match to see if I have done something wrong, but I have not. The PDC average is not correct. The correct average for Phil Taylor is 102.94, not 103.31. My stats are correct, PDC's are not :)

When setting the player type to "Boys" or "Girls" before the mode was set to "County", all the 12 player boxes would be visible, instead of the default who is 9 in youth matches.

    I will be in Gothenburg, Sweden, from Saturday morning to Monday night. During that period I will check my e-mail from time to time, but I will not be online more than an hour or so a day. If you buy a license, please be patient, it may take a couple of hours more than normal before you get the code.

    A new beta version of Darts for Windows has been released. This version fixes a bug/feature when addding new teams to a blank database when you run DfW on Windows Vista and Windows 7 (access violation). A bug when selecting the two players playing the final leg in a 4 players team match has been fixed (used for World, Europe and Nordic Cup). Sorting criteria in multi rounds Round Robin has been changed to follow the same rules as WDF and PDC. I have also changed DfW to no longer start a leg from a random number between 435 and 499 when in demo mode. All legs in demo mode will start from 401.

It looks like the mail server I use (the ip adress) is being blocked because someone has been using the same mail server for spamming.

    A new beta test version has been released. The most significant change is the support for multiple rounds in Round Robin. By multiple rounds I mean the players can play each other more than once (max 8 times pr group), just like the PDC Premier League and Bridlington Premier League. The old Round Robin is still available, but only when you set the number of rounds to 1 (players play each other only once). The new Round Robin has autosorting and also a lot of other improvements like the results are updated automatically if matches are started from the Round Robin screen. It also supports drag and drop results from the "Match log" window into the "Order of Play" window to register the results in the "OOP" window. A new tutorial for the new Round Robin is now available.
    This beta update fixes a couple of bugs in the new Round Robin released last night.

    I'm leaving for Sweden in halv an hour. I will be reading my e-mails 2-3 times a day today and Sunday. On Monday I will be on the road most of the day so I will not be able to read my e-mail until Monday evening.

    Round Robin with multiple rounds will be added to DfW in the next version. For backwards compability, I may keep the old Round Robin. The new version have autosorting so the table will be sorted automatically for every result you put in. The order of play (where you put in the results) is in a separate window. I have set a limit of 72 players pr. group in the new Round Robin (should be more than enough for normal use). There is a limit of max 8 rounds in the new RR (every player can play eachother a maximum of 8 times in one Round Robin).
    Here is how the first test version looks like. I have put in all the results from the PDC Premier League 2010. I have also checked with the PDC site that my table is identical to the official table and it is.

    This is the first time this cup includes women so I had to change DfW a lot to make it work with the new addition. The database below requires the latest beta version (2.7.4.3 BETA 4) of DfW to work properly.

    I have added font smoothing to the score sheets and also to the "floating" window and it looks a lot better than before (see screen shot below).

    Thank you to Huw Jones for uploading the Great Mountain Open 2010 database and to Ricky Carter for the Dorset databases.

    If you get the error message "Software protection error" when trying to unlock DfW on Windows Vista or Windows 7, close Darts for Windows, RIGHT click the DfW icon on the desktop and then click the item in the menu, "Run as Administrator" and the program will unlock without the any problems. This problem is caused by too tight security settings on Vista and Windows 7 (on some pc's).

    30.01.2010
    07:10 CET

    I have release a new and final beta test version. This is the 2.7.4.2 release candidate version. This version fixes a serious problem with message dialog boxes when creating teams or players by clicking on the "Add" button in the match setup screen. All error and information messages in this mode will not be visible (the message dialog box would hide behind the players register screen, making it impossible to continue without killing the program unless you press the enter key on the keyboard to close the invisible message...). This problem is caused by Windows who do not put the message dialog boxes in front of the topmost screen in the application.

    29.01.2010
    23:05 CET

    A new tutorial on how to setup Super League teams/matches using the new setup screen (from version 2.7.4.1) is now available.

    20:15 CET

    The final missing database for Division Three has been added to the download section.

    I just noticed a few minutes ago that the jerk, Paul McCrevey (crevey1@googlemail.com), who ripped me off by lying to PayPal by saying he never received what he paid for and got his money back after purchasing and unlocking DfW, is still using Darts for Windows. What a looser. I know who you are Paul and what league you are playing in. I hate dishonest darts players !

    20.01.2010
    20:55 CET

    www.dartsforwindows.com is now up and running again. Due to a power loss in the area where I live, my server was down for just over one hour between 17:10 and 18:20 CET.
    I have release a new beta test version. The most important change can be found here.

    19.01.2010
    16:35 CET

    I have decided do add a "Add new player" button in the next release when DfW is set in "County" mode. The reason for this is that some users found it confusing and hard to find where to register new players in DfW when doing a county match. New players can only be added when in "Singles" mode.
    Even more BICC databases from this weekend has arrived. Thank you to all the uploaders.

    17.01.2010
    10:40 CET

    Darts for Windows has been a victim of fraud by a person named
    Paul McCrevey. This person purchased a license for Darts for Windows and I mailed him the unlock code shortly after. What I did not know was that as soon as he had unlocked DfW, he contacted PayPal and told them that he wanted his money back (he did not contact me and ask me for a refund or anything) for some reason. I'm not sure, but I do think he told PayPal that he had not received what he paid for. I can see in my logs that he unlocked DfW and he was also using DfW AFTER he asked PayPal to reverse the transaction. He now has a free copy of Darts for Windows, I hope he will enjoy it. I have contacted him twice, but no response. His e-mail address is crevey1@googlemail.com.
    If you know this guy, you know that he is not an honest person. This is not about money, this is about honesty between people in the darts community !

    16.01.2010
    23:45 CET

    A brand new tutorial on how to getting started with DfW and also how to register players and teams in DfW in the new players registrations screen, has been added. I do recommend that all users, new and old, to read the tutorial.
    I have added three missing first round matches, Phil Taylor-Colin Monk, Juhan Artut-Wayne Mardle and Steve Hine-Roland Scholten, to the Ladbrokes.com 2010 database.
    Let's not forget that this weekend is county weekend. The first database form Scotland has arrived. Thank you to Cliff Murray for the upload.

    Important:
    If you have version 2.7.4.0 installed, please update to the latest version (it is free). The 2.7.4.0 version has a serious bug when setting up BICC teams.

    12.01.2010
    21:05 CET

    The Division One "ready to go" database, Derbyshire-Surrey, has been updated. There were some players missing from the database.
    A new official version, 2.7.4.1 has been released. This version fixes all know issues regarding setup of BICC teams. Please download the new version from the link below and test the setup of BICC teams and see if everything is working ok if you are planning on using DfW the coming weekend for BICC matches.

    11.01.2010
    23:25 CET

    I have just arrived from Spain and my inbox is full :)
    I have released a new version of DfW, but no change of version number. This version includes a fix for Scotland North and South BICC. I had forgotten to activate the division filter in DfW so the "ready to go" databases did not work for the Scottish Counties (no players visible). This update is very important if you are using DfW for Scottish BICC matches !

    The Lakeside 2010 database has been updated and is now complete with all matches so far. This database is the 100% original one straight from the BDO laptop used on stage. In case you did not know, Darts for Windows is the scoring program used on stage at Lakeside. No markers, only computers.
    The BDO is using the latest technology in darts software for professional use. For some reason, the "professional" side of darts uses manpower for marking the scores on stage :)

    05.01.2010
    23:50 CET

    The Lakeside 2010 database has been updated and is now complete with all matches so far. Congratulations to Robert Wager, you really did your job today old mate !

    The Ladbrokes.com database has been updated. The missing match from last night (Nicholson-Jenkins) has been added. All of the matches from Saturday and Sunday are also in the database, but I have lost set 2 in the Suljovic-Painter match so this match is not complete.

    19.12.2009
    23:59 CET

    I will only add a few selected matches to the Ladbrokes.com database this year. I'm going to Spain on holiday.

At the moment the database only contains six matches, Kirk Shepherd-Scott Burnett, Jarkko Komula-Wes Newton, Mervyn King-Matt Clark, Barrie Bates-Jelle Klaasen, Aodhagen O'Neill-Adrian Lewis and Peter Manley-Andy jenkins.

    The new beta version is still not ready. I have done a lot of changes to the inner workings of DfW so I expect that it will be some bugs in this version. I have tested the new version for more than a weeks now, but I still have a few tests left.

    Version 2.7.3.12 has been released. There was a stupid bug in the 2.7.3.11 version when you create a new player. All players are saved as "Mens" no matter what type you set it to :)
    I have also added a option to print alpha lists of pairs from the "Add new pair" screen. See the forum for screen shot of the new option.

    19.10.2009
    17:10 CET

    New "ready to go" files for BICC, Division Three, has been uploaded. A lot of the players were not in the first export because they were not registered for the current season.
    I have found the source to a error who was reported in the new version. If you select a team name in the "Teams" list who is blank, you will get a "Access violation" error in the "Add new player" screen. It is not possible anymore to create blank team names in DfW so this is not a big problem. The problem will only occur if you are opening a database created with a previous version where blank team names were allowed.
    Darts for Windows 2.7.3.11 has been released. See the forum for list of some of the improvements and bugfixes.

    The "ready to go" databases for the BICC weekend 31/10-01/11-2009 are now available from the "Download" menu in DfW. The files are also available for manual download on the BICC page.

    From now on, all older versions of DfW will be kept in a separate download archive. In case of bugs or other problems in DfW, you will have the option to download and install a previous version. If your period of free upgrades expires, you will still be able to download older versions.

    16.10.2009
    17:30 CET

    Version 2.7.3.11 will be released in a couple of days.
    The BDO BICC software has been upgraded to import county matches straight from DfW databases. You no longer have to create export files from the "Match & Tournament" log. Mail the complete DfW database to your Division Executive instead. Don't forget to upload copies of your BICC databases to this server also :)
    The upload can be done from the "Tools" menu in DfW.

    Her is some info regarding the Darts for Windows license. When you buy a DfW license you will get free updates for the next 12 months, but it is possible to get free updates after the 12 months period has expired if you follow the rules in the license agreement shown below. Support is free and there is no time limit on support.

    Important license info:
    If your license is more than 12 months old you will no longer be able to get new unlock codes for your license if you haven’t used the “remove license” tool to remove the license from the old computer before changing computer or reformatting the hard-drive. The license removal tool removes the license from the computer and uploads a confirmation of the removal to the DfW license server. You will then be able to obtain a new unlock code for any pc you like after using the "license removal tool". If you fail to do this after the 12 months period has expired, you will have to buy a new license if you change or reformat the hard-drive.
    The tool is mailed to you upon request.

    This may not be very popular, but I have had to many incidents with dishonest people. If you are planning on reformatting or changing pc, make sure you run the "license removale tool" before you reformat or change computer and everything will be fine.

    The British pound has dropped so much recently that I may be forced to raise the price per license to at least £23 from 01/01/2010. When I started to sell DfW to the public in 2005, 1 pound sterling was worh 12.30 in Norwegian currency. Today the value is 8.83 (PayPal). Let's hope the value will raise before the new year :)
    If the value of pound sterling goes over NOK 10, I will raise the price with only £1 to cover extra costs for the server and the bandwidth..

    Thank you to John Phillips for donating the Dockers Open 2009 database. The database contains the draw, the score sheets and stats from the final. The title went to Barrie Bates.

    Most of the "ready to go" BICC database files for the first round of the 2009/2010 is now available, except for Division Three (only 2 out of 5 files available). 4 of the counties in Div Three has not registered players with the BDO at all. This is the first time since I added support for BICC (3 years) in Dfw this has happened.
    The databases can be downloaded manually from the BICC pages or downloaded directly into DfW from the "Downloads" menu in DfW.

    I'm leaving for Denmark tonight. I will be back next Tuesday.
    DON'T FORGET TO DOWNLOAD AND USE THE LATEST VERSION OF DFW FOR THE BICC. Don't blame me if you are using an outdated version of DfW :)

    22:50 CET

    The database from WDF World Cup 2009 has been updated. I merged 5 single databases into one, but the import function was not 100% ok for the pairs. The stats in the pairs has been rebuilt to make sure everything is correct. The stats were correct for the pair itself, but the sinlge stats for each player in the pair was not correct. This affected the total average for each player.

    27.09.2009
    18:55 CET

    The ready to go BICC database files for the first round of the 2009/2010 season is delayed a couple of days for some of the divisions. The BDO has not received all registrations yet due to delays in the UK postal services.

    Thank you to Ricky Carter for donating the database.

    This site may be very slow at times because of a massive boost of visitors downloading the World Cup 2009 database :)
    The database from WDF World Cup 2009 is now complete. The database contains all points tables (only available in version 2.7.3.10b), all draws + all scores and stats from the 423 matches played so far.
    The Premier Darts League Bridlington 2009 database has also been updated with the latest results. The database now contains 629 matches !!

    The World Cup 2009 database needs some manual changes because of forfeited legs. The legs has to be removed manually and the score sheet for the legs must be cleared. This is a challenge because I have never tried to do it beofre. The only reason fro removing the legs is that it affects the stats for the players a little bit (not much :).

    24.09.2009
    16:25 CET

    The 2009 World Cup in Charlotte, USA, started today at 15:00 CET. Darts for Windows is the official software for the tournament. Darts for Windows has been modified to run the whole tournament.

    The 2.7.3.9 version had a corruption in the exe file probably caused by the encryption. The corruption caused a "access violation" when printing a Super League or BICC match in "BDO style". The new version is identical to the 2.7.3.9 version, except that the access violation is gone after a recompress and re-encryption of the exe file.
    I have not been able to create "ready to go" databases for the BDO Youth County matches for the first county weekend simply because I don't have any of the names for this season yet :)
    When the averages are published on the Southern Section pages, I will be able to create the files for the next round.

    Thank you to Ricky Carter and Aly Hawkins for donating the databases.

    I'm finally home from my three weeks trip to USA.
    A new beta version has been released. This version fixes the problem when you print a draw sheet who has been divided into groups with 8 first round matches (default is 16) . The third column would contain wrong players.I only had a few minutes on the airport in Philadelphia to fix the problem :)
    I have also fixed the same problem in a 32 player draw, divided into two groups. This was not fixed in the version released earlier today.
    12 more matches, played yesterday, has been added to the Premier Darts League Bridlington 2009 database. The database contains all 583 matches played so far.

    02.09.2009
    03:55 CET

    A new beta version has been released. Most changes is done to the "Tournament" side of DfW (beacuse of the coming World Cup in USA). In Round Robin, if two teams/players/pairs share the same position in the table, DfW will check for who won in the match between them to sort out who is comes first of the two (only in the "Sort" window, not in the RR table yet). The new beta also fixes a "Access viloation" error message when closing DfW. The error only occured if you had been using the "Board and time" screen in DfW to assign board and time to a draw sheet.
    I will be travelling back to Norway from USA on Friday. I'll be home on Saturday afternoon.

A lot of you visitors comes here because you search for "crack", "free darts for windows", "darts for windows free unlock code" and so on. You should be a little more careful when you do that because I can see WHO is searching for the cracks or other illegal things.

    There is not so much happening at the moment in the darts world, but for Darts for Windows a lot is happening. I'm very close to a unbelivable milestone when it comes to the number of licensed users. The sales has gone throught the roof this year. I'm not sure what I will do when I reach the milestone, but there will be at least some free licenses to the person who purchases the license with the magic number :)

    A new beta version has been released. I had by accident turned off the option to print "BDO styled" sheets when printing Super League matches. The new beta also includes set scores in the "Match details" screen + a few other improvements and fixes. The printer orientation problem when printing to Adobe Acrobat is hopefully solved. I do not use Acrobat so I can't be 100% sure..

    I'm leaving for Copenhagen tomorrow afternoon. I will be back on Saturday around noon. During that period I may not have an internet connection.

    A new beta version will be available Wednesday night. I have started to implemet "Net play" in DfW. The only problem with net play is that you must have some basic knowledge on how to setup port forwarding/NAT on your router so outside users can be able to connect to your pc. The TCP port will be configurable, but the default port is 9903. I have testet a very basic version of net play in my local LAN and it is working very well. I'm only able to send scores at the moment (no editing or undo is working. I will not include the "Net play" in the new beta. I will wait until it gets a little better :)
    There are still a lot of you out there using the versions with the "undo" bug/memory problem. Please upgrade to the latest 2.7.3.4 version to avoid problems with the stats. The upgrade is FREE. Do not uninstall the old version. The new version upgrades the old version and makes sure nothing is lost.
    Two more Division Four databases from the BICC weekend 07/03 is now availabale for download. Thank you to John Weller for uploading the database.

    The "ready to go" databases for all divisions playing on the weekend of 28/03/2009 is now available from the "Downloads" menu in DfW and also on the BICC page.
    I usually don't announce improvements in the news section anymore, but I will do an exception. I have added support for triples/threesome in DfW. There will be no option (yet) to play a threesome match, but you can instead create blind triples/threesomes teams and put them into a draw :)
    You can create the triples manually or let DfW do the dirty work for you (mens, ladies or mixed triples). I will use the same technique and also add support for creating blind pairs. This will save tournament organizers for a lot of work when you do tournaments with blind pairs and/or triples/threesomes.

    The Burnley Premier League 2009 database has been updated with the latest results.

    I would like to thank all the uploaders of BICC databases from this weekend. I have a record number of databases this time. Premier Divison, Division Three and Scotland North are 100% complete. The rest of the divisions are also very good represented except for Division Four, who is only represented by one match :(
    Come on Divsion Four counties. I know there are at least two more databases out there :)
    More BICC databases has arrived.

    More BICC databases has arrived.

    I have released the 2.7.3.4 version. This version will fix the problem described below. The list of improvements and changes can be found on the forum.

    There was a serious problem in the 2.7.3.3 version (and probably down to version 2.7.3.1) of DfW when you used the "undo" function (CTRL-Z). I was not aware of this until I got a few reports about problems with the stats this BICC weekend. I upgraded some parts of my programming tool a few weeks ago. Unfortunately the upgrade caused a random memory leak and the data in the memory area used to store the stats, were sometimes overwritten by garbage numbers when you used the undo function (this affected the stats for the player you were editing the score for). I contacted the US based company who created the update and asked them for a fix. They have now sent me an update and my laptop is now working without any problems when I compile the source code. There were no problems using the undo function as long as you did a "Rebuild all stats in current database" from the "Tools" menu after the match was done. Normal editing of a score by clicking on the score in the score sheet was not affected since this funtion used another part of the memory. I'm sorry for this problem, but there was not much I could do until I got the update. At work I did not install the upgrade so everything were ok when the source code were compiled there (as I did with the 2.7.3.4 version).

    I have just arrived my apartment in Spain and is now online again.
    A new 2.7.3.3 beta version is now available. There is a couple of bugs in the "Add county team" screen. I have fixed the bugs and will release a new version later tonight. Use the beta version at your own risk :) A list of (som of the) bug fixes and improvements can be found on the forum.
    While browsing the net, I came across a sound pack who is compatible with Darts for Windows. If you search for Darts sounds + Bruce Spendley in Google, you will find a RAR compressed file on a forum with all sounds from 0-180 + game shot. You will have to figure out yourself how to use these files (take a look at this turorial on how to use sound files in DfW). The sound file prefix must be set to blank in the "Settings -> Options" screen ("Extended" settings" tab) and also the two sound files "Player1.wav" and "Player2.wav" must be present in the "dfwsound" folder to get the sound option to work. These files are not the same quality as the one you get from the PxC demo. The PxC demo also got the "you require" sound + a few others the BS pack doesn't have.

    I'm going on a 9 days trip to Spain on Saturday. If you are planning on buying a license, please order before Saturday.

    04.02.2009
    22:30 CET

    The new beta version is still not ready for release. It may be ready tomorrow night.

    23:25 CET

    I'm back online. My router died on Sunday night while watching the darts on ITV. I missed the last 7 legs of the Taylor-Thornton match so my database from the Coral.co.uk Players Championship 2009 is not complete. When the router died, it was almost the end of the world for me, but on the other hand, I was supposed to be in Portugal this week so I guess I was lucky after all. I'm going on a 9 days trip to Spain on Saturday. If you need a license, please order before Saturday. I don't know if I can get a stable internet connection in my hotel using my own laptop.
    A new database is available for download. Our friend in Dorset,
    Ricky Carter, has been so kind and donatet the database from the Youth County match, Sussex-Dorset, played on Sunday.

    01.02.2009
    15:05 CET

    The Coral.co.uk Players Championship 2009 database has been updated with the semi-final, Robert Thornton-James Wade. I missed the Wade-Barneveld match last night because my internet stream died. If anyone out there has the score sheets, I would be very happy if I can have them :)
    Darts for Windows must be installed on your computer to view the scores and stats from the database.

    31.01.2009
    23:50 CET

    I still cant understand why more than 700 of the licensed users of Darts for Windows never upgrades to the latest version. Some of you are running old version with know bugs. If you have a version older than 2.7.3.2, click one of the links on top of this page to download the latest version. The latest BETA version is stable så I do recommend you to use this version.
    The Coral.co.uk Players Championship 2009 database has been updated with the latest QF, Phil Taylor-Colin Lloyd.

    If you have the 2.7.3.1 version installed, please upgrade. This version has a serious bug in the Match & Tournament log screen (see further down this page).
    The BICC Division Two Norfolk-Nottinghamshire "ready to go" database for 14/2/2009 has been updated with one change of a name.
    Two of the missing Scottish databases from last BICC weekend has arrived.

    I'm also interrested in BICC matches in Excel format. I can convert the Excel sheets into Darts for Windows format. Also other missing databases from older matches will be much appriciated. You can find all the databases (more than 200) here.
    Excel sheets and databases can be uploaded to this server by using the upload option in the "Tools" menu in Darts for Windows.

    27.01.2009
    20:45 CET

    Out of 25 matches the last BICC round, 18 databases were uploaded to www.dartsforwindows.com. I'm sure some of you out there has one of the missing databases. I also misses some of the Scotland datbases. I know DfW is now used by almost all counties. The following matches from 17/01/2009 are missing in my archive:

    • Division One: Derbyshire-West Midlands
    • Division One: Staffordshire-County Durham
    • Division Two: Bedfordshire-Lincolnshire
    • Division Two: Cumbria-Norfolk
    • Division Three: Northamptonshire-Clwyd
    • Division Three: Northumberland-Montgomery & Radnor

    The version number has been changed in the dowload link. Forgot to change the text this morning when the new version were updated.
    Version 2.7.3.2 has been released. I did by accident remove some code in the beta version and after that I mananged to overwrite the original code in the release version too. This problem affected the whole "Match log" screen. I'm really sorry for this, but there was nothing I could do than release a new version. On the bright side, I have added entry numbers to the alpha list printout from both the "Add new player" screen and the "Tournament" screen :)

    22.01.2009
    20:00 CET

    I had by accident overwritten the original 2.7.3.1 release with the beta version (probably on Monday or Tuesday this week). If the button with the "+" sign (the shortcut to the "Match details" screen) is missing from your "Match log" screen, please download the latest release and reinstall DfW. This will also affect deleting matches from the "Match log" when you click the "DEL" button in the grid. This will not remove the match form the database, only from the grid. Deleting a match from the "Match log" will work if you press the "DEL" (or "DELETE") button on your keyboard.

    The BICC "Ready to go" databases for all divisions on the following dates:
    21/01/2009, 07/02/2009, and 14/02/2009 are now available for download from the Downloads menu in DfW. You can also download manually from the BICC page.

    21.01.2009
    11:35 CET

    I have released a new beta version. The only new feature in this version is support for playing against BICC matches.
    Here is the tutorial on how to play against matches or players in a DfW database.

    20.01.2009
    23:25 CET

    The tutorial How to play against a player/match in a DfW database has been updated. This tutorial was VERY outdated so it was about time I did something about it :)

    Yet another BICC database from last weekend has been added to the download section at the BICC page. I have now 191 BICC databases available for download in my online archive + 126 from different tournaments around the world, including most of the Majors.
    I have managed to get hold of the scores from the famous match at Wembley in 1999, "The Challenge of Champions", between Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld.
    Click link below to download the database in .dfw format.
    Darts for Windows must be installed on your computer to view the contents of the database.

    19.01.2009
    18:45 CET

    Three more BICC databases from this weekend are now available for download.

    It has been brought to my attention that the way I display tons in the
    "Print BICC or Super League in BDO style" is not correct compared to the old Excel sheets used for County matches before the counties strated to use DfW. After studying one of the Excel sheets, I must admit that, yes, I do not show the tons the way it was done before. I'm going to change the way the tons are displayed back to how it used to be, even if I'm not so convinced that this is how it should be done. If you score 100 + 140 and 180 in one leg, the column should read "3+1", not 1-1-1 as I would have done. The basic rule is "the number of scores from 100-180 + an extra number for the 180's".

    There is a bug in the 2.7.3.0 version when you try to change the ton and score colours from the "Settings" screen. The changes are save to a wrong path in registry and therefore it will not be red back to the score sheet. Thsi bug has been fixed in the latest BETA version.

    The Lakeside WPDC 2009 database has been updated with both the mens semi-finals, Tony O'Shea-Darryl Fitton and Ted Hankey-Martin Adams.
    A new 2.7.3.1 beta version has been released. This version fixes a couple of bugs in "Pairs". When playing a pairs match, the legs for both pairs are saved with the same pair id (probably introduced in the 2.7.2.1 version or later). This bug is not visible until you open the "Match details" screen. This bug affects also printing of stats in a pairs match. When game shot in a pairs match, the wrong player was given the score and darts. The player doing the outshot gets the same number of darts and points subtracted from his stats. The overall stats for the pair will be correct, but not the stats pr. player. These bugs has been fixed in the beta version. The "Match details" screen has been improved for pairs and 4 player teams.

    A new BETA version has been released. I have finally managed to configure (or "trick" if you like") Installshield (the installation software) to overwrite the current DfW version without having to uninstall the old version. I have also removed the setting in the installer who is overwriting the last used database when upgrading (the overwriting was introduced in the 2.7.3.0 version). The "Match details" has been improved/facelifted (only for "Singles" and "County" at the moment).
    The Lakeside WPDC 2009 database is now complete with all 4 matches from tonight. Latest match added is Martin Atkins-Gary Robson

    Both the Lakeside WDPC 2009 and the Ladbrokes.com 2009 databases are now complete with all matches so far.
    While going through some old stuff in my basement, I found Norway Open 1997 on a VHS tape. It showed clips from the youth, ladies and from the mens quarter, semi and finals. Sadly, it is only two 100% complete matches on the tape and that is the semi-final between Raymond van Barneveld and Mervyn King and the final between van Barneveld and Martin Adams. The sem-final was awesome ! Raymond had over 108 in average and Mervyn over 103. The database can be downloaded from the link below or from the "Downloads" menu in DfW.

    Version 2.7.3.0 has been released. I have not had the time to create a change log this time. The most important change is the default installation folder.The 2.7.3.0 version installs the program to C:\DartsforWindows by default, but you can of course change it to the old destination folder, C:\Program Files\Darts for Windows. The reason for doing this is the sh.... Windows Vista. The "Program Files" folder in Vista is a UAC protected folder. Even if you are an administrator, you don't have admin rights. The downside of changing the default installation folder is that the installer also overwrite the setting for the last used database. The default database will revert back to "dartsforwin.dfw" every time you upgrade DfW. I don't think it is going to be a big problem, but beware of that you may have to move old databases from the C:\Program Files\Darts for Windows\database folder to C:\DartsforWindows\database the first time you upgrade DfW if you are upgrading from an older version and you install DfW to the default installation folder.

    A new version, 2.7.3.0 will be released on Dec. 31. I'm rather busy with the update at the moment, that is why I'm a little behind with the Ladbrokes database. I also miss the 2 first legs and the six first darts from set 2 in the Rodriguez-Painter match. If anyone got those scores I would be very happy to get my hands on them :)

    The default installation folder, C:\Program Files\Darts for Windows, will be changed in future versions of DfW because of the crappy Vista "User Access Control". "Program Files" folder is a UAC protected folder and will give DfW problems if you don't change the user permissions on the "Darts for Windows" folder. The next problem now is that when you uninstall DfW, all databases will still be in the \database folder so you will have to manually move the files to the new database folder. I may change the path in the registry so DfW don't detect old databases and setting, but you will still have to move the files unless I can program Install Shield to do it for me.

    If these pages are a little slow, it is because the number of visitors has increased by over 500% pr day the last three days :).
    The Winmau Wold Masters 2008 database is now complete with all results and stats from the stage matches, including the missing Wagner-Anderson match.
    The player import files has been removed from the BICC page. There is no longer any need for the import files when you have the "ready to go" databases available. It is even easier to use a database who has allready been prepared for a BICC match. All that is missing in the "ready to go" files are the team setup (the playing order). The playing order is not known until the same day the match starts so there is not much we can do about that :)
    I have also created a tutorial on the BICC page on how to download the "ready to go" files.

    One more BICC database from last weekend is now available for download from the Download menu in DfW 2.7.2.2. If you want to download manually, click the link below.

    A new BETA version has been released (link on top of this page). This is the second beta release today. When creating web outputs of a draw sheet, the web page will now refresh after 60 seconds. The page will not be put in your browsers cache either to make sure it loads a fresh copy every time. I have added this option so the live update pages from the Lakeside play offs will reload itself. The BDO has now updated their Darts for Windows version so the pages are now refreshing every 60 seconds. Fixed a saving bug in the draw sheet.

    There may be some problems with computers running Windows Vista when setting up a BICC match. I'm not able to reproduce the error on my XP computer. When selecting the teams in the "Setup" screen, you may get an error message saying "Sorry, it's not allowed to have the same County on both sides !". I'm trying to create a workaround for this problem. I will start to make beta versions available for those of you who are interrested in testing new version. The first beta will be available tomorrow night.
    The uploading of BICC databases has been very slow this round. It is the first time ever that I have almost more Scottish databases than the rest of England and Wales. Come on, please upload :)
    I have noticed that some of you download Darts for Windows repeatedly. The link to DfW is very high speed so it will only take a few seconds to download (for me it takes 2 seconds to download 2.2 megabytes !!). There is nothing wrong with the link. It downloads so fast that you may think that nothing was downloaded !! :)

    There was an error in the Turkish Open 2008 database. The mens singles format in the draw sheet were set to an incorrect number of legs and therefore the wrong winner was put through to the next round (only on paper of course :) in some of the matches. This was not a bug, but a human error. Click link below to download the updated database in Darts for Windows format.

    28.10.2008
    19:15 CET

    I have had several mails from users having problems with the BICC player import files. The fact is that there are no problems, I have simply added two kinds of downloads, the "Ready to go" databases (no import needed because the import has allready been done) and the "Player import files 2008/2009". The import files are located in a separate section below the "ready to go" databases. I do of course recommend that you use the "ready to go" database because it is what is says, a database ready to be used as it is :)

    I have split the databases, in the download section on the right, into three categories: YOUTH DATABASES, SUPER LEAGUE and INTERNATIONAL.

    In case you did not know, it is now a lot easier to uninstall Darts for Windows (from version 2.7.1.0) when you are upgrading to a newer version. I have added a separate uninstall shortcut in the "Programs" menu (see pic below).

    There was a bug in the 2.7.2.0 version when creating a new database. No County teams were added. I missed out one sinlge apostrophe in a SQL statment. I'm sorry for the trouble. A new 2.7.2.1 version is now available for download.

    I'm still very surprised that many of the Darts for Windows users never upgrade to the latest version. It has up to now been free to upgrade to the latest version, no matter how old your license are. I have no intention to change this policy yet, but I may do it in the future. When you buy Darts for Windows, you will anyway have a minimum of 12 months of free upgrades. The 2.7.2.0 version is ready to be released, but I have to finish the tutorial for the new "Match Editor" before I release the new version. Please have a look at the Darts for Windows forum. You don't have to register to read the articles and news there.

    I have become a sponsor for the General darts chat section at the BDO Players Forum for the next 12 months.

    While going through some old darts related stuff in my basement, I found my programme from the 1996 British Pentathlon. I was very happy when I discovered that I had written down every single point from the official scoreboard. What surprised me when I added all the points to my British Pentathlon database were the 4-5 errors I found in the grand total column. Some of the players had up to 7 points too many and some had up to 6 points too few. I don't think they used computers at the Rainham Mark Social Club that day :)
    Anyway, I have updated my database with the 1996 Pentathlon. To view a Pentathlon, Start DfW, open the "Tournament" screen (CTRL-T) and then click the tab "Pentathlon". Open the Pentathlons from the drop down box. All columns can be sorted by clicking the column headers.

    Thank you to Dawn Speed for uploading the BICC database.

    Two more databases are available for download.

    Thank you to Ricky Carter and John Phillips for the uploads.

    I have decided to open a Darts for Windows forum. Click here for a preview.

    All the "Ready to go" databases and the "Player Import Files" for the next BICC weekend 01/11 is now availalable for download here.
    I have now tested all the different game formats in the new "Match Editor". The tests were a huge success. The editor has been tested on leg matches, set matches, pairs, County, Team of 4, Six Nations, Celtic Cup, League of Legends, Super League and Premier League formats. The editor passed all tests after a few adjustments. No more problems with editing scores and darts after a match is done. I did a test today on a Super League match where the user had changed one of the teams after the match was played and some data were lost. I managed to fix the error in just a couple of minutes.

    A have recieved a Lancashire Super League match from Andy Heaton.

    The Sky Poker World Grand Prix 2008 database has been updated with the Taylor-Barneveld final + two missing first round matches.
    The new and improved Match Editor will be included in the next version of DfW. The new editor is a huge improvement to DfW. The new editor has support for inserting, appending and deleting legs. You can also edit the scores, add more score lines and change the number of darts used in a game shot. It is also possible to change the winner of a leg. It is very flexible, but the user will be responsible to do the correct changes. When you edit a match, you will always work on a copy of the match, not the original. The original match should be deleted after the editing has been done to avoid errors in the stats and duplicate data. A new tutorial for the editor will also be available when the new release is ready. I have to test every single type of matches supported by DfW before I can release the new version.
    I have just recieved a database from the Finnish ranking tournament, Tallukka 2008. Thanks to Taina for the upload.

    I have simply forgot to create a "how-to" for the Pentathlon function in DfW :)
    Thanks to Darren Hawken for giving me a hint. There is a bug in the Excel export funtion in the Matchlog window. The bug has been fixed in the new unreleased version.
    I have recieved yet another database from last weekends BICC round. I have also uploaded a database with all 8 matches from last nights Sky Poker World Grand Prix 2008 + both second round matches from tonight (Lloyd-Painter + King-Eccles). This database will be updated with more matches as soon as I get the time. I have taped 15 of the first 16 matches. The only match I'm missing is the Wade-Eccles match. If someone got the scores I would be very happy to have them :)

    Thank you to Paul Warwick for the BICC database upload.

    I have decided to expand the Round Robin to support up to 32 players in each group. I will also set the minimum number of groups down to 1. This means that you now will be able to run a single group Round Robin (or league) with up to 32 players. This option will be available in the next version of DfW.

    19.09.2008
    19:35 CET

    I have fixed the download link below.
    Version 2.7.1.0 has been released. Click here to download.
    THE OLD VERSION MUST BE UNINSTALLED BEFORE YOU CAN UPDATE (NOTHING IS LOST).

    • Added option to print alphalist of all players in the "Add Players" screen. Also option to print the alphalist with the "paid" status set.
      printalpha
    • New print layout for County and Super League matches (see pic below on how to use the new option). Sample file in PDF format
      print
    • Fixed bug in Round Robin. When createing a RR, no matter what you had set the match to it only accepted max 3 legs when you registered the match results.
    • I can now send personal messages to any DfW user. If you are connected to the internet when starting DfW, DfW will check for new messages to you on my server.
    • When printing a draw sheet, the group winners name were misaligned. Fixed
    • There is no longer necessary to close a County match between the men's and ladies matches, minimizing will do, but I do recommend to close just to make sure.
    • Fixed a bug when running several matches at the same time. Sometimes the score would be put on the wrong side of the scoresheet if it had been inactive for a while.
    • A lot of minor fixes i can't remember :)

    The BICC player import files for the next round 04/10/2008 has been uploaded to the BICC page. The "Ready to go" databases wil be added later.
    More BICC databases has arrived. Premier Division is now complete. Nottinghamshire-Bedfordshire is now complete with both A and B matches. Thank you to Martin Forsyth-Benson for the update.

    I know there are many counties out there who uses DfW. I would be very happy if you could upload the databases from the BICC matches. It only takes a few seconds and can be done very easily from the "Tools" menu in DfW by clicking the item "Upload current database" (if the BICC database is the current active database) or the item "Upload any file or database" if your databas(es) are not the active one.

    Thank you to John Phillips,Jacqueline Walford and Ricky Carter for uploading the databases.

    11:25 CET

    UPDATE
    I have managed to solve the problem when two or more score sheets are active and you minimize one the score sheet windows. It was Windows who caused the trouble. I have created a workaround, but I don't have the time to publish a new version until I get home from Spain.
    I'm leaving Spain 12:00 today (checking out of the hotel in 5 minutes). I will not be available until tomorrow morning (Sunday), unless there is a internet connection available on the plane :)

    12.09.2008
    15:10 CET

    UPDATE
    Yes, there is a problem if you just minimize the score sheet between the match. Whatever you do, don't minimize, close the score sheet instead.
    Here is how to do it the proper way:
    Saturday:
    1. Create both B teams as normal.
    2. Start the men's B match.
    3. Play the first 4 matches.
    4. Close the score sheet (very important. Don't minimize it !!)
    5. Start the ladies B match.
    6. Play the first 3 matches.
    7. Close the score sheet.
    8. Resume the men's B match by pressing CTRL-R on the keyboard or go to the "File" menu and click the item "Restore a match". Click the men's B match from the list box to load the data from the match.
    9. Play the next 4 men's matches.
    10. Close the score sheet.
    11. Resume the ladies B match (as described above in number 8).
    12. Play the last 3 matches.
    13. Resume the men's B match.
    14. Play the last 4 games.
    Sunday:
    Do the same as above (A teams of course :)
    Thats it :)

    Darts for Windows has been tested on Asus Eee PC 900 and it runs like charm.
    I'm leaving for Spain on Saturday 06/09. I will be back on Sunday 14/09. I will probably have an internet connection available most of the time, but I can't give any guarantee that I will be answering mail or issue unlock codes during that period.

    If you pay for DfW using an eCheck (a lot of people do), don't forget that it takes PayPal 10 days to clear the check. In other words, it will take 10 days before you get the unlock code. There is nothing I can do to change this. My advice is, pay by credit card if you are in a hurry or if you are an impatient person :)

    22:35 CET

    The mens Europe Cup 2008 database is now complete. The database contains all score sheets, stats and draw sheets. Thank you to Carsten Jeppesen, DDU for sending me the missing data.

    Some of the mails I have sent to my customers (containing the unlock code and the instructions on how to unlock) have not been delivered for some reason. I suspect Hotmail is blocking my address, license(a)dartsforwin.com for some strange reason. If you have purchased DfW lately and you have not recieved the unlock code after 3-4 hours, please contact me asap (link on the right side).

    The ladies Europe Cup 2008 databases is now complete. I still miss the mens finals from yesterday. No reply yet from the DDU. We still don't know who won the Europe Cup ... No overall results on the offical web site.

    There is a bug in the Round Robinsetup. No matter what number of legs you set, it will default to best of 5 legs. The bug has been fixed. A new version of DfW will be available in a few days.

    28.08.2008
    19:30 CET

    I have added an option to print data from BICC and Super League matches in the same format as the BDO forms (well, almost identical). The layout has been apporved by the BDO.

    Thanks to John Parrack for guiding me in the right direction. The new printing option will be available in the next version.

    I just found out that the sound option (click here to read the how to) does not work on Windows Vista unless you change some settings. Because of the stupid paranoid secutity settings in Vista, the sound option does not work unless you right click the "dfwsound" folder and sets the security settings for "Users" to "Full control". What a crappy operating system !!

    I'm back from Denmark :) The weather was not good until the day I left. It was raining and the wind was blowing like hell all week. Anyway, Denmark is a lovely country, cheap beer and lots of cheap first class wine :)
    I'm going to create a new tutorial on how to setup the new BICC format (4 mens, 3 ladies, 4 mens, 3 ladies and finally the last 4 mens) for the 2008/2009 season using DfW.
    I have recieved the Ciswo Summer 2008 database from Cliff Murray. The database contains the complete drawsheet + all scores and stats.

    If you pay for DfW using an eCheck, don't forget that it takes PayPal 10 days to clear the check. In other words, it will take 10 days before you get the unlock code.

    The 2.7.0.1 version has been released.
    The complete Europe Cup 2008 draw in Darts for Windows format is now available for download. The database includes all players, all draws and the men's team and ladies pairs Round Robin.

    Here is the change log for the 2.7.0.1 version:
    • Fixed a bug when displaying pairs in the draw sheet using the format "Lastname/Lastname-short team name". The wrong teamname were shown for some of the pairs.
    • Added support for printing Round Robin groups (group by group or all together).
    • Added uninstall shortcut from the "programs" menu.
    • Fixed "access violation" error message when deleting a Round Robin.
    • Added support for showing a suffix when displaying player names in the draw sheet. The two new formats added are "Firsname Lastname Suffix" and "Suffix-Firstname Lastname". For example: In Europe Cup, all players have a suffix (A, B, C or D). The suffix is also handy if two players has identical names.

    06.08.2008
    08:00 CET

    I'm finished implementing the printing option in RR and I will release the 2.7.0.1 version probably on Thursday. I'm going to Denmark on holiday on Saturday. I will be away for a week (only). During that period, I will probably not have an internet connection and I will therefore not be able to issue unlock codes or answer mails. So please hurry if you want to purchase a license :)
    The how to for Round Robin has been updated this morning with a couple of changes. I have also created a PDF version of the how to.

    04.08.2008
    21:15 CET

    The BICC format has been changed, but it should not be any problems. I will publish an article later on how to play a BICC match with the new setup.
    A 2.7.0.1 version will be released in a couple of days. I have added the option to print out Round Robin groups + a couple of other fixes in the Round Robin setup.
    A note on reinstallation or upgrade Darts for Windows 2008

    Darts for Windows 2.7.0.0 changelog:

    • Added support for Round Robin.
    • Added support for running a Pentathlon.
    • When set to show 3 dart average, the "Match Log" will also show 3 dart average.
    • Fixed a bug when playing against a database. If the option to record darts on doubles were active, the program would go into an endless loop.
    • Added option in the "Add new player" screen to convert all names to uppercase.
    • Added option in the "Add new player" screen to capitalize the names of the players (revert uppercase).
    • Improved the "Register darts on doubles" option.
    • Added option to turn on/off the "Register darts on doubles" option by RIGHT clicking the panel between the scoresheets in the score window.
    • Added support for the Legends format (best of 12 legs or first to 7 legs). Set the format to "Premier League" and then set the legs to 12 to activate the Legends format.
    The new "Match Editor" is not is this release (will be added later).

    21:05 CET

    The 2.7.0.0 version has been released. The first version of Round Robin is now implemented, but no random draw at the moment (will be added later). I will create a how to for the Round Robin and Pentathlon in a day or two. The changelog will probably be available tomorrow. I will continue to improve the Round Robin so the next version of DfW will probably not be too far away :)

    I have added support for Pentathlon in DfW. Click link below to download a database containing the British Pentathlon 2006, 2007 and 2008. To view the Pentathlon, download and open the database below, navigate to the "Tournament" screen, click the tab "Pentathlon" and then choose the Pentathlon you want to view from the drop down box.

    The new 2.7.0.0 version of Darts for Windows will probably be released at the end of next week. I'm too busy playing golf at the moment to finish all the small bits and pieces in DfW. The Round Robin part is 80% done (saving is working). Pentathlon is 100% done. The new "Match Editor" is not perfect yet, but it is a lot better than the old one. The support for the Legends format is 100% + I have improved the way you register throws on the double. I have also fixed a bug when registering darts on the doubles while playing against the computer (thanks to Andy Smith for pointing out the bug).

    I have a couple of the matches from the UK Open 2008, but I don't know if I want to publish them. The stream I was watching was so poor that I only managed to get the scores from the Wayne Jones-Gary Mawson (QF) and James Wade-Vincent van der Voort (SF). I also have the first 5 legs from the Barneveld-Mawson semi-final. I would be very happy if someone out there has som more scores for me :)
    In the next version of DfW, I will add a new import/edit function who makes it possible to edit a match (injecting legs, deleting legs, changing scores, number of darts and so on) after a match is done. You can also create your own import files to import into Darts for Windows. I will also create a tutorial on how to use the new function. I will at the same time remove the "Match Editor".

    The BetFred League of Legends 2008 started last weekend. Andy Scott has donated scores from two of the matches, Cliff Lazarenko v Keith Deller and Bob Anderson v Peter Evison. He has also donated the PDC US Open 2008 final. I have also created a PDC players database. The database contains 679 men's and 1 women from the PDC Order of Merit dated 19/05/2008.. Very handy for those of you doing PDC tournaments.

    * To open the database, Darts for Windows 2008 must be installed on your computer.

    If anyone have the scores from the other "Legends" matches, I would be very happy to have them :)

    I have noticed that most of you download both the executable and the full installer of Darts for Windows. There is NO reason to download both of them. I will try to explain why.

    • If you do not have Darts for Windows on your computer, dowload the full installer, unzip the installation file and then do a full install.
    • If you have an older version of Darts for Windows installed on your computer, download the executable only. Why ?
      Because you only have to overwrite the old executable with the new one. This saves you from doing a uninstallation before you can install a new updated version.

    The Nordic Open 2008 was played in Finland today. Robert Wagner won the men's title and Grethel Glasö won the ladies. Click link below to download the database.

    * To open the database, Darts for Windows 2008 must be installed on your computer.

    In the next version of DfW, I will add support for the "Legends" format. The format is 12 legs, or first to 7. At the same time it will also be possible to play matches with even number of legs (just like the Premier League and Legends). I have set the format from 2 to 36 legs.
    Example:
    1. Set a match to 4 legs. The first player to win 3 legs wins the match or you can have a draw ( 2-2).
    2. Set the match to 12 legs. The first player to win 7 legs wins the match or you can have a draw (6-6).
    The new format must be set by using the "Premier League" format (see pic below).

    The final between Phil Taylor and James Wade from the PDC Premier League 2008, is now available for download. The database also contains the Taylor-Lewis semi-final.
    I noticed that SKY's stats were NOT correct for Phil Taylor in the semi-final.
    I double checked to make sure. His average in the semi were higher than the one they showed on tv and so were the number of ton+'s too :)
    SKY's stats were not so accurate during the final either. Sometimes they were correct, sometimes not. I have not checked PDC's stats on Planetdarts, but I will do it later.

    Darts for Windows is going to be used in the Nordic Cup, played in Finland the coming weekend. I expect to have the database with the full stats on Monday.

    It was nice to see Darts for Windows used on stage at tonights Premier League semi-finals and final. PDC used Darts for Windows on two large LCD monitors on both side of the stage. Phil Taylor won the 2008 PL by beating James Wade in the final.

    I have always been very discreet with my customers. I never give out any of my customers names or e-mail addresses. I never send out any spam or news. The downfall of this is that many of you don't upgrade your version of DfW. In the future, I may be sending out newsletters to make sure everybody is using the latest version of Darts for Windows. Some of you big stars out there never upgrade !!!
    Maybe that is why some of you are slipping down the rankings ? :)

    (12/05/2008) - Version 2.6.1.1b has been released.

    It looks like PayPal or my ISP has problems with the payment notifications sent by PayPal. When customers pay using PayPal, I always recieve a payment notification just seconds after, but in the last couple of weeks, sometime I don't get the noifications at all. I therefore have to check PayPal manually for payment.

    Important notice: If you pay by eCheck, it will take up to 14 days before the check is cleared. There is nothing I can do to speed up the process.
    When you pay, PLEASE GO TO http://www.dartsforwin.com/paid.html AFTER THE TRANSACTION IS DONE. No unlock code is issued until the check has been cleared.
    I can not guess your serial number and without the serial number I'm not able to create the unlock code.
    One last thing, don't use fake mail addresses at PayPal. If you do, I will not be able to send you the information on how to get the unlock code.

    I have decided to postpone the new version because I want to add a couple more functions. I will also check a couple of other things who needs improvement. I have also done a couple of changes to the unfinished "Round Robin" function. I have changed the maximum number of player in a group from 8 to 10 players. I haved also fixed a bug in the "Match Viewer" and the "Match details" screen. When clicking the "Go to last leg" button in a County match in the "Match Viewer", the numbering of the players would be incorrect. In the "Match Details" screen, the total team average was totally out of sync in county matches due to a numbering bug. It took me 5 seconds to fix it....
    Another database from the last BICC round has just arrived. A big thank you to John Williams, Gwynedd for the donation. He worked really hard for this one :)

    • Printing to PDF using Adobe Acrobat failed because of a bug in Acrobat. I have added a workaround for the problem.
    • Full support for World Cup and Europe Cup draw in the "Tournament" screen following the WDF rules.

Downloading and running only the exe file without the installation can have unpredictable results on the program
    As a result of the weak Pound Sterling, I have to rise the price pr. license to £20 from 01/05/2008.

    01.04.2008
    09:55 CET

    I have had a couple of reports of problems with DfW this weekend. I have one report of problems with the arrow indicator pointing randomly to the wrong side.
    This error was caused by the user closed the program in the middle of the match and then restarted the match later using the "Resume a match" function. In set/county matches, the arrow indicator goes bananas after a while if you use the "Resume a match" function. Will be fixed asap.
    Another report is a colour distortion on the screen showed between County matches. The colour distortion is not DfW related, but it is related to the graphics driver or the projector not able to show scrolling text. To overcome this problem I will remove the scrolling text and replace it with static labels instead, simple as that. I have also had two reports on the score column has disappeared. This problem is caused by a new resizing algorithm of the score sheet introduced in the 2.6.0.9 version. I have finally managed to reproduce the problem. If you click on the points left column when the scoresheet has a certain size, the scorecolumn will scroll out of view because of one single pixel is lost in a rounding of a number function used in the resizing function :) I fill fix the "score out of view" today, but no new version will be published until I have fixed the "arrow" problem. The arrow indicator problem will take a little longer so in the mean time, don't use the "Resume a match" function if you are in a middle of a county or set match .

    I have recieved some of the databases from this weekens BICC matches (PD is complete).

    Version 2.6.0.10 has been released. The link to the latest executable has now been fixed (link was pointing to the 2.6.0.9 version).
    The database from this weekends EDO and EDC event, England vs Europe is now available for download.

    Thank you to the England Darts Organisation and Vic Sexton for donating the database.

    Here is the change log for the new 2.6.0.10 version:

    • Brand new "Match Viewer". The viewer is now identical to the main scoresheet window.
    • Fixed the "Access violation" bug when opening the "Options" screen.
    • Fixed bug in the pairs draw in the "Tournament" screen (bye's disappearing when inserting players).
    • Fixed bug in "Average by match". Super League matches did not show W/L correct.
    • Changed the filter in "Average by match". Super League and County matches now uses the same filter.
    • In the "Tournament" screen, when inserting players, players allready in the draw is not listed in the players list anymore.
    • Changed som code in the "Upload current database". The zip file uploaded were sometimes empty if the current database was not in the default path.
    • Can't remember the rest ... :)

    Version 2.6.0.9 is a critical update. The 2.6.0.8 version had a serious bug in the "Tournament" screen. When I was testing the new options in the "Tournament" screen last night, I only tested with a complete draw sheet. When I ran som new tests this morning on a empty draw, I discovered that I had totally screwed up the function who reads the draw from the database. I have fixed all know bugs and tested as much as I had the time to. For me it now looks ok.

    15.03.2008
    09:50 CET

    Version 2.6.0.8 has been released. It is now possible to show only last names instead of full names in the main screen. I had to add this option because of Raymond van Barneveld. His name is so long and when the PDC uses DfW on stage for the Premier League, the names gets simply too small :)
    I have also fixed the font scaling in the score sheet in the main screen and also in the Match Viewer screen.
    In the Tournament screen when doing draws with more than 32 players, the last 32 players in the draw will also be available in a separate tab named "The Finals". When a draw gets very big, it's hard to navigate. To solve this the "The Finals" tab has been added. I have also done some work on the Round Robin, but there's a lot more to do before it can be used.
    I have recieved the database with the complete Torremolinos Open 2008 draws + all scores and stats from the finals.

    The Lancashire-Middlesex BICC players import file has been reuploaded because of change in one of the names. The file is available on the BICC page.

    I have just recieved my new ceramic darts from www.ceramicdarts.nl. They look great !!
    I'm going to test them now and I will post here what I think about them.
    I have the C-Grip M1 Titanium 25 gr darts. Thank you to Ad Schoofs and www.ceramicdarts.nl for letting me test the new darts.

    UPDATE: My first 3 darts without warming up were T20,20,T20 :)
    I'm testing the darts playing cricket, using DfW of course.

    UPDATE 2: These are the best darts I've ever tested. I have hit at least one treble out of 3 darts every time. The reason I think is that I have always had a problem with dry fingers. I never play well the first 20 minutes because my fingers are to dry, but for the first time ever, the grip was perfect right from the start. The darts simply stuck to my fingers the perfect way. You can get the ceramic darts in blank and matte. Blank for me would probably have been a disaster, but the matte darts were excellent for me. I'm not sure if these darts are available to Joe Public yet, but I know that Barney have tested them. My darts are shaped almost like the old Alan Glazier darts, in other words, probably the same one as Barney used :)

    A new tutorial is now available. I was supposed to create a tutorial for the new crikcet feature but I changed my mind and created a new tutorial for setting up a Super League matches instead. Thank you to Beryl Page for the tip :)

    The new 2.6.0.7 version will probably be released tomorrow, Saturday, in the afternoon. There is a bug in the "Pairs" screen who has been fixed. I have also added the option to choose between 4,5 or 6 visible lines of scores in the scoresheet. i have also done a few other adjustments and bugfixes. The new version will also have Cricket darts.
    I had by accident deletet all the BICC import files for Scotland North and Scotland South for 29/03/2008. New files has been uploaded.

    I am very suprised of the fact that there are so "few" people, compared to how many licenses I have sold, who updates to the latest version of Darts for Windows. All licenses from October 2005 and up to this date is still valid for free updates.A lot of my customers thinks that they can't update because they are not connected to the internet (you don't have to be) or when trying to update, the computer complaints about a version is allready installed. Just uninstall the old version and then install the new one. Nothing is lost :). If you can't find the unlock code or have any problems, drop me a mail. It took Martin Adams two years to update to the latest version. I had to talk him into it when I spoke to him at Winmau WM :) ...and Raymond, it's free for you too :)
    IT'S FREE FOR GOD'S SAKE - WHY DON'T YOU UPGRADE ? :)

    I have recieved two more databases from this weekends BICC round.
    Click link below to download.

    I will release a new version of DfW in a few days, but from now on I will have two types of download. For upgrading to the latest version, you only have to download the EXE file and overwrite the current one in the installation folder. The second download is the full installer. By upgrading only the EXE file, no reinstallation is needed :)
    I have tested the new Cricket feature in DfW and I must admit that I like it :)
    I'm no expert on Cricket darts so don't expect miracles or any kind of spectacular stats, but if anyone can give me a hint i the right direction, I will of course do something about it. I have also added the option to adjust the numer of lines shown in the scoresheet. In all versions up to this date, 5 lines of scores were shown, but from the next version you can set the number of lines from 4-6 (12 to 18 darts). The option will be placed in the "Options" screen (Extended options).
    The player import files for the next BICC weekend 29/03/2008is now available here. Division Two will be available soon.

    04.03.2008
    22:45 CET

    The player import files for the next BICC round is now available for download from the BICC page. At the moment I have only created import files for Premier Division and Division One. The rest of the divisions will follow as soon as I get the updated list of players from the BDO. Please read the tutorial on the BICC page on how to import the players.
    I have created a new tutorial on how to upload or distribute Darts for Windows databases.

    I have also decided to include a simple version of Cricket darts in the next release of DfW. In Norway we call this type of game for Mickey Mouse :)

    The database from Finnish Open 2008 is now available for download.
    Robert Wagner "gave" the title to Steve West by missing loads of doubles in the final leg.
    Just to make sure the check for updates are working, I have released version 2.6.0.6. The new version also contains a sneak preview of the Round Robin layout in the "Tournament" screen and a bugfix in the county team screen. When saving a county team, the display name was not set to "Teamname MA", "Teamname WA" and so on. This has now been fixed.
    The new web server script used for unlocking Darts for Windows, had a nasty bug preventing the automatick unlock function to work properly. The script bug is now fixed.
    I have also recieved some of the databases from this weekends BICC matches.

    Thank you all for datbase donations.

    The 2.6.0.5 version is now available for download. I have added automatic check for updates in the new version. I have also improved the report when printing the details from a Six Nations match. The registration window has also been improved and is now far more intuitive (I hope). The work with support for Round-Robin tournaments has also begun.
    The new upload database function in DfW seems to be very popular :)
    When you upload a database, it will not be visible in the download section until I have approved the database (if I do...:) ).

    The complete database from the Six Nations Cup 2008 is now available for download. Congratulations to Wales for winning the title. I have also recieved a Youth County match from Ricky Carter, Dorset County. The match between Dorset and Hampshire was played last weekend.

    Click here to download the database from the Six Nations Cup 2008. The database contains the results and stats from day 1. The matches continues tomorrow morning at 10:00 GMT.

    PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE NEW 2.6.0.4 VERSION IF YOU HAVE 2.6.0.3 ON YOUR COMPUTER.
    Version 2.6.0.4 has been released because of a serious bug in the main screen in the 2.6.0.3 version. When game shot, the dialog box with the number of darts used in the checkout did not show. I simply had forgot to initiate a variable in my code.

    Thank you to Marc Evans for the results from "Trumpet House Premier League" :).
    Marc was the first person to test the new upload function in DfW. Marc played 4 matches against Graham Fillery and here are the results:
    Marc Evans v Graham Fillery 3-8
    Marc Evans v Graham Fillery 8-3
    Marc Evans v Graham Fillery 6-8
    Marc Evans v Graham Fillery 8-5

    Averages: Marc 15.75
    Graham 15.92
    Keep on practicing boys :)

    Version 2.6.0.3 is now available for download, I have fine tuned a couple of screens and also changed a few things.
    I have also added an option to backup the active database, zip compress it, and upload it directly to my server. Very handy for posting databases to this site with little or no computer knowledge. Feel free to try out this option :) (see the picture below)

    Version 2.6.0.2 has been released today. This version fixes bugs in the "Match Details", "County" and "Super League" screens. Support for the PDC Premier League format (14 legs, or first to 8) has been added to the new version.

    23:40 CET

    Version 2.6.0.1 has been released. The program has undergone a massive overhaul under the hood. Super League is no longer limited to 7 mens or 5 women. A Super League team can now be setup with 3 to 12 players.
    The setup window has changed a lot, but it should be rather easy to use. The player names and teams is now in the setup window instead of its own screen. I have also added some extended options in the "Options" screen.
    The colours in the score sheet has changed. It is now possible to turn on/off the divider in the score sheet and also change the colour of the scores and points left. The size of the averages box can now be set to "Large" or "Normal" in the "Options" screen. I have also fixed a lot of minor bugs found along the way. I will also add support for the Premier League format in a few days. The PL format is 14 legs or first to 8 legs and is used by the PDC.

    All Premier Division matches from last weekend is now available for download on my BICC page.
    www.dartsforwin.com and www.dartsforwindows.com is now online again. My server has never been down more than a few minutes the last 30 months, but as soon as I left for Portugal last Saturday, the power on my server said goodbye. I was lucky to get hold of a new power at Wortens in Albufeira. I came home this morning at 04:00 from Portugal. Around 09:15 last Sunday, this server went down. I was also without an internet connection at my hotel so I felt very frustrated because of the "isolation" and my server problems :). I have been working on DfW the whole week and I have rewritten thousands of lines of code to prepare the program for more improvements. I'm almost done with the coding, but it will still take some time to test it for bugs. I have also done a few changes, requested by the PDC. The size of the averages boxes can now be set to a very much larger size (two settings, normal and large). I hope I will have the new 2.6 version ready by the end of the week.

    01.02.2008
    19:35 CET

    Darts for Windows 2008 is now used by the PDC at Premier League. They still use markers on stage, but they now have DfW on two monitors on stage. DfW must be set to "Best of unlimited" legs when used at the Premier League, because of the option to get a draw in the match.
    I'm leaving for Portugal on Saturday 2nd. I'll be in Albufeira until Sunday 10th of February. I may have internet connection most of the time, but I'm not 100% sure. If you buy a license during that period, please be patient as it may take a little while before you get the confirmation and the unlock code.
    I'm working with the Super League and the new "Match Wizard". A new version should be available in a couple of weeks.

    27.01.2008
    01:25 CET

    The database from today's Tyne & Wear Open 2008 Presented by Stella Artois is now available in the database download section on the right side. Thank you to Alan Slight for donating the database. The database includes the complete men's draw with all the results + the scores and stats from the stage matches.

    26.01.2008
    17:25 CET

    I'm going to improve the Super League and County part of Darts for Windows. The Super League part is simply not good enough. I was not aware of all the different game formats. What I want now is to change the setup so the SL team can consist of 3 to 12 players. I would be very happy for some feedback regarding the SL playing format.
    The "Match wizard" screen is undergoing a facelift to make it easier to operate.
    I would like to thank all the counties for the donations of DfW databases. I still want more databases. Take a look at my BICC page, maybe you have a missing database to add to the list.

    22.01.2008
    23:15 CET

    All databases from this weekends BICC Premier Division is now available for download on the BICC page. I have also added about 10 databases from the 2007/2008 season.

    It is very important that you all follow the instructions when buying a license. If you register at PayPal with a fake email address when using a credit card, I will not be able to send you the instructions on how to get your unlock code. As soon as you have paid for a license, go to http://www.dartsforwin.com/paid.html and follow the instructions there.

    Because of the value of GBP (£) has dropped over 20% against the Norwegian NOK the last 18 months, I may have to raise the price from £19 to £21 pr. license in the near future to cover my costs. If I do, I will give a two weeks notice on this page. The price is anyway very low compared to what the software can do and the time I spend on developing it.

    A new version of DfW will be available in a few days. As soon as the 2008 Ladbrokes.com is over, I will get some time to add some new features to DfW before Lakeside starts. In the new version there will now be an option to backup the current active database. The backed up database will be compressed in ZIP format to make it smaller. I will also add the option to show the total number of games won in a BICC match, making it easy to see what the total score is. I will also start to create BICC import files for downloading from my site, containing all the BICC players registered in the current season, county by county. This will save all the Counties using Darts for Windows all the typing of the players names. Each file will contain all the players for each match (you may have to add new players to the database if the player does not exist in the current season in the BDO archives).
    The new BICC page with the import files can be found here.

    Kirk Shepherd and John Part is in the final of 2008 Ladbrokes.com WDC. 1st. semi-final result: John Part-Kevin Painter 6-2
    2nd semi-final result: Kirk Shepherd-Wayne Mardle 6-4

    The 2008 Ladbrokes.com WDC database now contains 47 matches, including the semi-finals, John Part-Kevin Painter and Kirk Shepherd-Wayne Mardle. I have also added the missing first round matches, Denis Ovens-Colin Monk, Mark Dudbridge-Steve Hine and Barrie Bates-Gerry Convery to the db. The drawsheet has also been updated with the results and I have also added the match start time to the drawsheet. I'm still a few matches behind, but I will continue to add as many as possible. It takes a lot of time to watch every match and enter the scores into DfW because almost all matches has went to a tie breaker. I don't have the video of a couple of the matches so the database will not be complete, unless someone has all the the data for the matches I'm missing. I forgot to put on my recorder yesterday so I missed the Shepherd-Manley match. Don't forget that is is also possible to play against all the legs/players/matches in the 2008 Ladbrokes.com WDC database. Take a look at this article on how to do it (not possible in the demo version).

    Version 2.5.1.17 is now available for download. The bugs in the "Tournament" screen has been fixed. When loading a saved drawsheet, the match format data was cleared after loading (the best of legs/sets settings). The missing data led to some trouble when starting a match straight from the drawsheet and also when entering the results of a match into the drawsheet, the winning player was not moved automatically to the next match.
    The Ladbrokes.com database has been updated with three of the matches from today, Painter-Mason, Shepherd-McGowan and Lewis-van der Voort. The complete drawsheet has also been added to the database. The database now contains 28 first and second round matches.

    A new version is out.
    I managed by accident to turn off the tie-break option in set matches a couple of months back without anyone noticing it... What I did was simply setting a sign to point in the wrong direction in the source code
    (<= instead of >=). I'm glad there were no tie-breaks on stage at Winmau when I was there... :)
    I have also fixed the stupid "LEGS WON" bug in the main screen. Those boxes were ment for County matches, but they will be replaced by the total number of matches won in a County match instead. The database from Ladbrokes.com has been updated tonight's matches, Maish-Priestley, Lewis-Askew and Barneveld-Forde.

    Alan Tabern (ave 29.39) won 3-1 in sets against Denmark's Per Laursen (ave 28.06). Per got punished for missing doubles like he did last year when he lost to Dennis Priestley in the second round.
    Wayne Mardle (ave 30.37) is also through to the next round after beating Ray Carver (ave 30.10) 3-2 in an exiting match. The datbase now contains two of the first three matches. I will add the last two matches tomorrow.

    Please donate datbabases if you use Darts for Windows for tournaments or BICC. I will post ANY database :)

    Version 2.5.1.14 is out.
    Fixed bug when saving the Match Log to PDF. Fixed bug in floating window. This bug caused a random "Access violation".
    New feature: Save data from a County match in BDO readable format. Complete data from a BICC match can now be exported from DfW. This gives you an option to send all results from a BICC match electronically to your Bdo Executive. A new "How to" will be available later tonight for this new feature.

    03.12.2007
    23:30 CET

    A new "How to" is available. It is now possible to create BDO compatible export files from DfW. Create the export file using DfW and mail your files to your BDO Executive.

    A new version is out.
    Fixed bug when printing a draw sheet with 128 players, only the first 4 pages were printed instead of 5 (the 5th is the finals). The printout of all players in alphabetical order from a draw sheet did cut off some players at the end. This is now fixed.

    • A lot of minor bugfixes.
    The setup of BICC County matches are the winner this time. DfW will soon have support for exporting in BDO readable format. This will save the Counties a lot of paper work when reporting the scores to your BDO Executive. When setting up a BICC match in the new version, the correct division and match type (A or B) MUST be set when you create a new team. When registering players for a county match, the players county MUST be picked from the list. No more team names like "Xxxxxx Men's A" and so on. A player must be assigned to the correct county, fex. Devon, Kent, Lancashire and so on to make it compatible to the BDO standard. The PDF and Word version of "How to setup a BICC County match" has also been updated.

    28.11.2007
    22:15 CET

    The new 2.5.1.12 version will be released tomorrow night. The update is done, but I have to update all the documation before I can release the new version. Most of the changes are related to the County match setup.
    The new "How to setup a BICC match in Darts for Windows" is now available for download. This "how to" is for the new 2.5.1.12 version.

    Note that a few players has the same name in the 2048 draw, but the players are not identical so it is not an error :)

    Oxygen Interactive, the copyright holder of a ceratin pc game, have asked me to remove the "howto" for using sound files with DfW. Since I'm not breaking any Norwegian laws, I have decided to not remove the html page. I have rewritten the "howto" for using certain sound files with Darts for Windows. This server does not contain any copyrighted sound files or any illegal files, only a document on how to play sound files from other programs/games in DfW (I'm not going to name the pc game here). If you buy the pc game or download the demo, I'm not responsible for how you use the files or what program you use to play them.
    The new version of DfW is ready, but I have to rewrite the "How to setup a BICC match" before I can release the new version.

    I have had two reports of virus in the latest version of Darts for Windows. The Darts for Windows executable is compressed and encrypted to prevent hacking and some of the free virus checkers detects the compression method as a virus. I have always the latest virus definition files on all my computers and servers. I use commercial virus chekcers instead of the freeware, so I don't get those kind of false alarms.

    It was a real pleasure to watch him on stage. He played fantastic darts in all his stage matches. Robert also qualified for the Lakeside 2008.
    Karin Krappen won the ladies, Kimberley Lewis took the girls title and Shaun Griffths won the boys title.

    Thank you to the BDO for donating the database.

    John Walton did a 9 darter in the Winmau World Masters a few minutes ago. I was watching the game, but I left the room just a couple of minutes before he did the 9 darter.... Congratulations to John "Boy" for doing the 9 darter on stage. It was also recorded by the BBC.

    The database with the stage finals from Czech Open 2007 is now available for download. Version 2.5.1.2 is also out. There was a bug in the "Match Details" screen in the 2.5.1.1 version. When showing the match details for a county match with less than 12 players on the team, all the stats for the away team would fail to show (blank lines only).

    Thank you to the President of the Czech Darts Organisation, Mr. Jan Prikryl for the donation.
    The database section contains now 82 datbases, so I probably have to redesign the download section in the near future. Most of the documentation is also rather outdated. My problem is that I'm simply to busy to catch up with the docs.

    It looks like I finally have solved the problems running Darts for Windows 2008 on Windows Vista. I had to rewrite a lot of the code to avoid the problems caused by Vista. I had to remove the configuration file "dartsforwin.ini" from the C:\Windows directory and place all the DfW settings in the registry instead. The drawback of this is that when you start the new version (2.5.1.1) , all your previous settings (colours, sound settings and so on) will be lost and reset to default.I also had to rewrite the online registration of DfW. When you click the link "I'm allready registered - Download unlock code", you will be asked to enter the name you used when you registered your license, to confirm the registration.
    Click link below to download the new version.

    I have improved the tournament part a bit by adding a lot of filters to the draw sheets, giving the user a lot of options on how to display players/pairs in the draw sheet. I have also created an import and export function of scores in DfW, making it easy to copy scores from other databases. I have no documentation on how to use the import/export function at the moment, but I will create a "how to" when I get the time. I have also added a few filters in the import of players function. It is now possible to set the sorting of the players in the following order:
    Alphabetical-Firstname Lastname
    Alphabetical-Lastname Firstname
    Alphabetical-Teamname, Firstname Lastname
    Alphabetical-Teamname, Lastname Firstname

    The new version will be available for download Sunday 04.11.2007 at approx 21:00 CET. I have just tested DfW once again on Windows Vista. For me as an IT person, I must say, what a crappy operating system !
    I managed to get DfW up and running by changing the security on the DfW install folder (I changed it to C:\Darts) and then running the program as "Administrator" by right clicking the shortcut on the desktop. I also had to enter my name and unlock code manually to let Vista accept DfW writing the license to a small text file and unlock it. If I clicked the link in DfW to register automatically, I got an "File access" error all the time. I also got the classic "Software protection error: 006". What a piece of sh... from Micro$oft.It is only an innocent text file DfW writes to, not a virus or malware program !
    I still don't know how to solve the Vista problem. I will probably find a solution to the problem when I have done a few more tests. I bought the Vista license a few months back, but I have refused to use Vista until now. I have XP on a separate hard-disk so I can switch the OS any time I want. I only want to use Vista for finding a solution to the DfW problem. As soon as the problem has been solved, bye, bye Vista !

    A new version of Darts for Windows is just around the corner. I have improved the tournament part a bit by adding a lot of filters to the draw sheets, giving the user a lot of options on how to display players/pairs in the draw sheet. I have also created an import and export function of scores in DfW, making it easy to copy scores from other databases. I have no documentation on how to use the import/export function at the moment, but I will create a "how to" when I get the time. I used the export/import function to go through all 575 matches from the World Cup 2007 databases and checking them for errors and also merging all matches into one database. I have also added a few filters in the import of players function. It is now possible to set the sorting of the players in the following order:
    Alphabetical-Firstname Lastname
    Alphabetical-Lastname Firstname
    Alphabetical-Teamname, Firstname Lastname
    Alphabetical-Teamname, Lastname Firstname

    I got the flu so I'm not so very productive at the moment. Probably got it from the air condition in the US (hot-cold-hot-cold all day). I'm still cleaning up the World Cup 2007 database and will publish it when it's finished. I'm also including the full draws in the database.

    I'm in Palm Springs at the moment, leaving for Las Vegas in 10 minutes. Palm Spring is a fantastic place. Easy access to the booze (cheap to) and it's is a lot warmer here than in Los Angeles.I have watched a lot of darts today from the SBS6 stream. I do have the databases from the World Cup 2007, but I miss the finals and I'm also going to merge all the databases into one.

    Greetings from Santa Barbara, California. I finally have an internet connection again, but only for a few hours before I leave for Palm Springs tomorrow morning, well it's actually today for the europeans because it is still Friday night here in the US. On Sunday I leave for Las Vegas. I do hope they have an intenet connection at the Venetian where I'm staying. When I was in Mexico, I paid $27 for one hour of crappy 10 kilobit internet connection.... It took me over 6 minutes just to log on and read the first mail.

    I unfortunately introduced a bug in the County setup in DfW when I introduced the support for the Celtic Cup format. I forgot to turn off a testbit in the code when I was testing the Celtic Cup format. When trying to setup ta County match in the 2.5.0.24 version, it was asking for Celtic Cup teams every time. This bug has been fixed in the 2.5.0.25 version released today.
    I'm in Long Beach, California at the moment. Luckily there was an internet connection in my hotel room. I'm leaving for Mexico in a few hours.

    I'm leaving for USA on Sunday and I will be gone until 22nd of October. During that period, my internet connection may be very limited. For some strange reason, everytime I go on holiday or I am unavailable, I sell more licenses than ever, even if I tell everyone that I am not able to issue any unlock codes until I get back :)
    If you need a license, please order before 20:00 CET on Saturday 6th of October, unless you want to wait until the 22nd.

    When playing against the computer in "match mode" (playing against mathces from a database), the program would go into an endless loop of "No score" after playing the number of legs from the original match. This bug is now fixed.
    Setting board numbers and board time in a drawsheet in the "Tournament" screen has also been improved.

    I have started to develope the next generation of Darts for Windows. The new product will be named Darts for Windows Professional. I'm going to rewrite the database engine and also the "motor" running DfW. The 2008 version has very complicated code so I have to rewrite the whole program from the bottom to add support for all the options I want to inlcude. I will try to make it more user friendly and fool proof. The option to browse all the legs while playing and also correction of errors in past legs. Add option for livescore on the internet and also internet play. I also want to improve the tournament part and also add Round Robin to the tournament option. Custom templates for custom games would also be nice. For example, create your own team type with any number of players and game format (mix singles and pairs for example in the same template). I have a lot of ideas, but it will of course take time. The price will also be higher than the 2008 version.

    The 2.5.0.11 version have some bugs in the county setup.
    MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE 2.5.0.12 VERSION WHO WILL BE RELEASED TONIGHT BEFORE YOU USE DFW IN A BICC COUNTY MATCH !
    For once I have really made a fool out of myself when it comes to the county setup. I did a typing error causing a few problems...:(
    A new updated version of "How to setup a BICC match in Darts for Windows" is available for download. It will also be included in the setup when installing the new version of DfW releasing later tonight.Download: Word PDF.
    Known bugs in the 2.5.0.11 version of DfW:
    There is a bug when printing a match in "BDO style". For some reason, the text on the printout is no longer transparent, covering some part of the lines dividing names and numbers.
    When registering a new county team and you click outside the screen, the "County teams" will disappear. Minimize the program and the screen will be behind the program.
    When editing an existing 12 players team, the team is set to 6 players and the last 6 boxes will be grayed out.
    A new fixed version will be released tonight.

    The British Inter-County Championships is starting on the weekend of Sept. 1-2. Darts for Windows 2008 has full support for the BICC format. Because of the new season start, I have decided to add some changes to DfW to improve the county part. All active counties in Great Britain have been added to the team names by default. A new field called "Display" (display name) have been added to the coming version. The display name is the name the team will be shown as.
    Example: You create a county team and pick "Devon" as the team. In addition you can let "Devon" be shown as "Devon A" or "Dev Men’s A" or "Devon Men’s under 21" or whatever in the "Display name" box. The team will still be associated with Devon County.
    Full support for youth county matches ("Men's Under 21", "Ladies Under 21" and "Under 18") will be added to the next release of DfW. The new version will hopefully be ready in a day or two.
    Support for use of the announcer sound files from the computer game PDC World Championship Darts will also be implemented (wav files must be copied to the \dfwsound folder and the sound must be enabled from the "Settings -> Options" menu).

    There is a bug in version 2.5.0.9. When adding new players, the team name dropdown box does not reset after adding a player. If you continue to add players with the same teamname, you will get the message Saving aborted. Blank firstname,lastname or team not allowed ! when trying to save. A quick fix for this is to reselect the team. A new version will be released as soon as possible.

    18.08.2007
    18:55 CET

    Version 2.5.0.9 is released. Click here to download.
    The bug in the "Autoplay" function is now fixed. When playing against the computer, the panel with the text "Throwing..." was not closing after the first leg was done. Added support for import and export of players in CSV format in the "Add new players" screen. All the BICC counties has also been added to the team names. You will now hoe the option to chose from normal teams and countries, BICC Counties only or both (in the "Add new players" screen). The drawsheet in the "Tournaments" screen is now searchable.
    I always forget what kind of improvements and bug fixing I have done... :)

    I have added search capabilities in the drawsheet for the coming release of Darts for Windows. When you have a draw with for example 512 players, like they have in this weekends British Classic 2007, it takes forever to locate a player in the draw. The new option to search for a name or part of a name, saves you a lot of time. If you get a hit, the box also changes background colour to green and the drawsheet scrolls down to the box. If anyone needs this option now, drop me a mail and I will send a link to the unreleased version.

    Version 2.5.0.7 is now out Click here to download.
    Fixed a bug when starting a pairs match + some minor things. The most exiting new feature is in the "Autoplay" match/player mode. When the computer is scoring, the scores is now shown in text format, throw my throw.
    Example for a 100 score:
    SINGLE 20
    *wait for next dart*
    SINGLE 20
    *wait for next dart*
    TREBLE 20
    Enjoy the new release.

    There is a "bug" (or feature) in the latest version of Darts for Windows. When I was fixing a bug in the previous version, I forgot to turn of a debug message when starting a pairs match. You will get a dialog box with the database query, 4 times in a row before you can start a pairs match. This message will not prevent the program from working, it is only very annoying.

    21.07.2007
    12:40 CET

    The focus is now on the improvement of the "Autoplay" function. Playing against matches/players in "Autoplay" mode is the most exiting new feature in the program for a long time. When playing against a player or a complete database, the name of the player you play against is now shown in the statusbar (not released yet). I will soon start developing the option for "Internet Play". I will at the same time include an option to exchange/send databases to other users by a single click of a button. An option to use the program for broadcasters is also going to be included. Dartsinmotion.nl is going to use DfW for the on-screen stats when streaming matches over the internet. Darts in Motion will be streaming darts on the 25th of July on www.dartsinmotion.nl.

    After implementing the option to play against matches/players in a DfW database, my averages has raised by 5 points pr. dart (or 15 if you like the 3 dart average). I'm playing against the complete Lakeside 2007 database. That means all the matches, both men and women. Last night I even had a 9 darter attempt. I hit back to back 180's, but lost the leg (missed bull with my 12th dart). My revenge was a 156 checkout in the next leg. It's a lot easier to rise your game when playing against the big scores. I am 18-7 down after 25 legs. I average around 27 pr dart (81), the computer averages around 28.3 at the moment. The nice thing is that when I'm done with this match, I can use all the legs I played in the match and then play against them too :)

    Some users still have problems running Darts for Windows on Vista. I simply hate Windows Vista. The secutity is tight as a ducks a.... The security is so tight that it prevents normal, harmless programs like DfW to run properly even if you are an Admin One solution to the problem is the following:

    If you get the "Failed to set..." problem do the following:
    On Windows Vista [Failed to set data for ''] error occurs on some occasions.
    Temporary Solution: Left-click program's shortcut, click Properties and on the Compatibility page, check Run this program as an administrator. The problem is that Vista does not allow DfW to save some settings, even if you are logged in as admin.
    The second solution:
    1. Click on the "Start" button
    2. Click on the "Computer" on the right side to list the disk drives.
    3. Doubleclick on the C drive
    4. Navigate to the C:\Program Files\Darts for Windows folder
    5. Right click on the "Darts for Windows" folder and click on the menu item "Properties" (the last choice in the menu)
    6. Click on the "Security" tab (no. 3 from the left)
    7. Click on the user "Users(%COMPUTER_NAME%\Users)" (%COMPUTER_NAME% is the name of your computer)
    8. Click the button "Change" (or "Edit". I'm not sure because my version of Vista is Norwegian)
    9. Click in the next window on the same user ("Users(%COMPUTER_NAME%\Users)") and tick the box "All permissions".
    10. Click "Ok" to save the changes and then "Ok" in the prior window
    11. It should now work :)

    I'm playing at the moment against ALL players from the Lakeside 2007 database.
    If you check the box "All matches" when playing against the computer in "match" mode, you play against all male and female players in the whole database (in my sample, Lakeside 2007). This is just GREAT. I never know who is playing the leg, which leg it is or how it's going to end. In the Lakeside 2007 database, it is 786 legs to play against !

    Version 2.5.0.0 is now released. Click here to download. I have had a great time testing this new version. I have played the Lakeside 2007 final , the Premier League final + a few more matches. It has been really fun to play against the top names in darts.
    I also manged to win a few legs :)
    I can now play against my own scores from those matches :)
    A new "Howto" for playing against matches/players is also available. Click here... to learn howto setup the program for playing against a match/player.
    You must of course also download a database (on the right hand side) or use one of your own to be able to play against other matches/players scores.AT the moment, I have 57 databases available for download.
    All the BICC counties has been added to the program. Also added support for register BDO player id's making it easy to import scores and stats from a BICC match into the new "BDO Tons for Windows". Tons for Windows is the new software BDO uses to create the tables in the BICC system.

    The new version is almost ready. I only have som final testings left. Right now I'm playing against Terry Jenkins's score from the Premier League final 2007 :)
    Open any database and play against the matches in the database (the winning legs only). It is also possible to play against the score of both the players in a match.
    F.ex., I can play against all the legs in the Lakeside 2007 final. It is better to play against all the legs than just one of the players (my opinion).

    I have had several remainders on the issue that when playing against the computer, if the computer leaves itself 170, it never misses even if you had set the maximum random outshot to 60. I will change this to do it random with a 5% chance to checkout...:)
    There is a quick fix to this...Just edit the template you use and remove/edit all scores ending on 1. The chance now for leaving the computer on 170 is 0 (it depends of course on the other scores in the template).
    The new version of DfW has been delayed. I will probably include the new "Autoplay" option in the next version. The new "Autoplay" will give you the option to play against other maches/players from DfW databases. You can download f.ex. the complete Premier League database and play against all the players/matches in that database. Pick a match, pick the player you want to play against.

    I have finally solved the Windows Vista problem. The new 2.4.2.0 release now runs on Windows Vista. Click here to download the new release.
    The only downside of solving the problem is that all registered users downloading the new version will have to reunlock the program. The unlock code is till the same so there should not be any problems. All unlock codes for registered users is in the online database. Just click the link in the registration dialog to unlock the program (must be connected to the internet).
    Btw, my personal opinion is that we don't need Windows Vista....I bought my last laptop with Windows Vista. The first thing I did was to buy a new XP license for it and scratch the disk (Dell wouldn't downgrade it to XP).....

    I hope I can get my hands on the database from Welsh Open 2007 in a day or two. At the moment I am changing a couple of the reports in DfW (BDO style with detailed stats + some more). I'm not sure what I want to start with next, but I will probably start with implementing the support for Round Robin in the tournament screen.

    Thank you to Cliff Murray for donating the database.
    I also want to thank Jan Prikryl for the Czech translation and Miguel Sousa for the Portugese translation of language.ini

    For some strange reason, a few people have paid me for a license, but they have never answered any of my emails asking them to register their serial number. I can not guess the serial number because it is random and created upon first installation of DfW. When people pay me for a license, I don't understand why they are not asking for something in return... :)

Just replace the existing English language with one of the downloadable language files or translate the existing language.ini file to your own language. If you translate the language.ini to any other language, you may send it to me (contact info on the right side) and I will publish your language.ini on this site.

    I arrived from Denmark this morning and I have now uploaded all the unlock codes for those of you who could not wait until I was back to order a license :)
    In the tournament screen, it is not possible at the moment to print out the result table from a pairs match. I did not have the time to include the code before the last release. I will fix it in a day or two, but first I will create the howto for the new Match Editor.

    The new version of Darts for Windows is ready for release tomorrow night (thursday). The Match Editor is now working as expected. I have also fixed a couple of bugs and also added the option to set board and time for a whole group or a x number of matches at the same time by one single click in a draw sheet. I'm aslo going to include the option to print out the complete list of the result from a draw/tournament. If I get the time, I will include the support for creating PDF files straight from DfW, even if you don't have Acrobat Writer on your computer.

    One of my customers have ripped me off by cancelling his eCheck after he recieved the unlock code. This is a rather stupid thing to do, because it is simply fraud and theft. I know his name, email and all the details about him. I'm contacting a few people at the moment to get a 100% identification of the person. As soon as I'm 110% sure, I will publish his full name, address, email, date of birth and the county team he plays for.I sure hope he is enjoying the free license....
    Btw, his email address is smartreggie@aol.com. If anyone of you knows this email address please contact me by clicking on the link on the right side.

    My back problems are almost healed and the flu is gone so I have done some serious upgrading of DfW. The new MatchEditor is now in the final test stage. With the latest addition of the Match Editor to DfW, I think that I now have made the almost complete darts package for all kinds of use. There are of course always room for new functionality and improvements. I would be very happy for some feedback and suggestions for new functionality in this program. To contact me, just click the link on the right side.

    The new version of Darts for Windows is delayded because I have catch the flu and I also have som serious back problems (prolapse) :)
    This have been the worst Easter in my whole life...maybe...
    I may be a little out of shape, but I have some great news. In the next version of DfW there will be support for editing a match after it's over. This have been the weakest part of Darts for Windows in my opinion. It's no problem to correct errors during a match, but if you're not aware of the error(s) until the match is over and you want to have the stats 100% correct, this is the solution. I will not include support for changing the match result (no use, fatal errors like that should be corrected when they happens).

    Version 2.3.2.1 is now released. The new version have full support for tournaments up to 1024 players. In theory, there is no limit to the number of players supported. If the tournament is larger than 1024, just split it into two 1024 drawsheets and then do a new tournament (drawsheet) for the last fex. 64 or 128 players.
    Just use your imagination... :)
    The code for print outs of the drawsheets have been totally rewritten and the layout have been redesigned. See the samples below (in PDF format)

    The bug in the setup program from version 2.3.1.6 to version 2.3.1.8 is now fixed. On some computers you would get an "C:\Windows\Shellnew" error when starting the program. The quick fix for this error was to manually create the "Shellnew" folder in the C:\Windows (Windows XP and Windows 2003 Server) directory or C:\Winnt on Windows 2000.
    The 2.3.1.9 version will be released as soon as the new printing functions for the new 1024 players draw is ready. There is a bug in the import players from WDF rankings.
    If a player has the apostrophe character in his/hers name, the import will stop (O'Malley,O'Shea and so on...). This bug is fixed, but only in the unreleased 2.3.1.9 version...

    Support for up to 1024 players in one single group/tournament have been added to the next unreleased version. The "Tournament" mode now supports 8,16,32,64,128,256,512 and 1024 players pr. group/tournament. I'm considering to implement the option to split at large tournament into groups, making it easier to get the full overview. Support for board and board time will also be added to the drawsheet.

    All databases are in Darts for Windows 2.3 format.
    New databases: There are a couple of bugs in the current version of DfW. The most serious bug is the “Cannot perform this operation on an open dataset” in the “Import match” function. The bug has been fixed, but no new version of DfW has been released yet. There was also a small bug in one of the new Six Nations reports. Wrong playername was shown for team two in the “Details” screen. This is fixed in the unreleased version. In the next version of DfW, support for printing all players in a tournament in alphabetical order. Very handy to use in the registration of the players at the venue.

    The new version of Darts for Windows 2008 (2.3.1.6) has now been released. The option to play Cricket darts is not included because of other priorities (Six Nations). The new version have full support for Six Nations 5 players team. The database has been changed from Access to my own DFW format.
    It's now possible to doubleclick on any DFW database to open it in DfW.
    It's also be possible to create new blank database by just right clicking in Explorer and then create the database by clicking on the item "New" in the menu. The whole program has undergone a rather massive overhault. Because of the Six Nations in Netherlands this weekend (thats why I have to release the support for Six Nations...) no new documentation on the new options will be available until next week. Most of the new options should be rather self explaining anyway :)
    Note: All the databases on this site has been converted to the new DFW format.

    I'm back from Portugal.
    The new release of DfW is still not ready. The support for cricket darts will be in the new release, but my knowledge about American cricket darts is rather limited so don't expect a perfect product in the first release :)
    I used the information found on this page to create the support for cricket.
    Please note that most of the howtos and instructions still contains screenshots from Darts for Windows 2005, not 2008. The 2008 version is almost the same as 2005 so there should not be any problem to understand the guides, but I will update all the howtos when I get the time.

    04.02.2007
    09:15 CET

    American cricket darts will be included in the next version (In Norway we call it "Mickey Mouse"...). I'm no cricket expert, but I will do my best to try to create a good layout and functionality. I will only go for singles in my first version, but support for pairs will be added later. As far as I understand, there are two ways of playing cricket. The first one is easy to understand, throw at any of the numbers (15-20) or bull. The second one is "no slop", start on the 20's and finish on the bull. I will be more than happy if anyone could send me any tips or tricks regarding cricket, fex. how to work out some kind of stats from a cricket match. I guess the number of darts used to close the game would be interesting ?

    22:45 CET

    The database file format in Darts for Windows will be changed in the next version of DfW.In all versions up to this date I have used the Microsoft Access database file format, but due hacking (using a Access password cracker) and publishing of the database password on a dutch site, I will no longer use the Access file format. All downloadable databases on this site will be converted to the new format at the same time as the next release of DfW. From the next release, all licensed users must update to the latest version (it's free anyway) to be able to open the databases published on this site. It will still be possible to open MDB files for backward compability, but the databases will no longer be possible to open in Access. All old DfW files opened with the new version will be converted to the new file format on the fly. The new file extension will be DFW. The new extension will be associated with Darts for Windows making it really easy to open a DfW database by just clicking on the file. The activation of the autoplay feature (play against the computer) has been simplified in the new unreleased version. I must admit that it's not easy to turn on the autoplay function if your'e not a computer expert...The autoplay function has been moved from the "Tools" menu into the "Match wizard" screen. I have no release date for the new version because of all the testing of the new database file format.

    The Europe Cup 2006 database has been corrected and updated with the complete draw for mens singles, ladies singles, mens pairs and ladies pairs. While adding all the pairs and singles matches to the draw, I discovered that 3 matches contained either wrong winner (the players was probably switched in the scoresheet) or wrong team names. There were 1 ladies singles with wrong winner and two mens pairs with uncorrect teams (A team instead of B teams and vica versa). Those 3 errors also affected the total stats for the involved players. I'm in no way responible for those errors ( the database was donated to me). The complete draws is available from the "File -> Tournament" menu in DfW 2005 and 2008.

    23.01.2007

    I'm sorry that I wasn't aware of Avon using the name "West of England" as their team name. I have now corrected the team names in the database.

    Here's the databases from a couple if this weekends county matches.

    Thank you to Sue Getty and Steve Mann for donating the databases.

    The 2008 version of Darts for Windows (2.3.0.4) has been released. The updated version contains a few bugfixes and improvements.
    • If no score, just press the SPACEBAR on the keyboard
    • The county setup has been redesigned completely under the "hood".
    • In the "Rebuild all stats in database" there was a bug when rebuilding a database with one or more county matches.
    • The "HOW TO SETUP A COUNTY MATCH IN DARTS FOR WINDOWS" is now included in the setup file
    • The default background colour has changed from blue to charcoal
    • Can't remember the rest of the fixes...My short term memory isn't that good I guess :)
    Darts for Windows has now changed the sub version to 2008. All 2005 owners can also use the 2008 version.
    A new and more detailed help file/tutorial, "HOW TO SETUP A COUNTY MATCH IN DARTS FOR WINDOWS", is now available as downloadable file. The new howto is only available in Microsoft Word and PDF format. The howto also covers some basics and tips and tricks on how to use Darts for Windows.

    It's nice to now that two of my customers has won both the Ladbrokes.com 2007 and Lakeside 2007 in the last two weeks.
    Darts for Windows
    is your best practice partner I guess.... :)
    The Lakeside 2007 database hase been updated. Hit percent on doubles was missing from the ladies final. The hit percent in the de Ruiter-Nixon match had by accident been added twice, this has now been corrected. The hit percent on doubles is still missing from the final. If I get the time, I will browse through the final tonight and add the missing hit percent. Except from the small glitches, the database is now 100% complete. The database is actually the one used by the BDO on their on-stage computer (a big thank you to the BDO, Sue Getty, Mick Getty and Vic Sexton) .

    Darts for Windows 2005 is going to be renamed to Darts for Windows 2008 in the next release (2.3.0.x). The 2005 makes the software name sound "old" (it's not, it's updated all the time..). The new version will look the same except for the blue colour in the logo and background of the scoresheets will be changed from navy blue to charcoal (colour code #404040 for web...). The background colour of the scoresheets is anyway configurable, so I don't think it matters :)

    Last night in the match between Paul Hanvidge and Martin Phillips, the referee did an error and called wrong score in one of the legs. The score was corrected by the referee two-three times. The score was set to 39 by the referee, but it was actually 37. Martin Phillips left 85, but it was set to 83 because the referee called 39 as the score. I just red on the Deutscher Dart-Verband forum that they blame the software used for the error. This is totally rubbish !
    The person operating the computer is NOT a referee, only a person entering the scores into the computer, called by the referee. Darts for Windows can correct any score at any stage of a leg, as many times as you like. So don't blame the software or the computer operator for this error. Here's the link to the article (in German).

    Darts for Windows 2005 version 2.2.0.27 is now released.
    Changelog:

    • The size of the legs and sets boxes in the scoresheet screen has been expanded. Because the screen at the Lakeside stage is placed rather far away to the left, the players have problems seeing the leg and set standings. I hope the resizing will help the player to increase their performance :) (just kidding...)
    • When clicking on a match in the drawsheet, the "Remove player from draw" was set as default action. This has now been changed to "View scoresheets from match" as the default action.

    Darts for Windows 2005 is to be used as the offical stats program at Lakeside 2007.
    I will be publishing the database with all the scores, results and the draw on a daily basis. For the first time at Lakeside, there will be no markers on stage, only Darts for Windows 2005 and a LCD/Plasma screen with the electronic scoresheets. This is exactly the same as we did here in Norway (Norway Open, Europe Cup and Nordic Cup) about 10 years ago :)
    We had a great success with this. As long as you have a computer operator who knows the program well, is fast, clearminded and sober... there will be no problems. If you do any mistakes, pressing CTRL-Z keys (the "undo" command) on the keyboard will get you out of trouble at once. I wish the BDO all the best for Lakeside 2007.

    Raymond van Barneveld won the Ladbrokes.com WDC 2007 by beating Phil Taylor 7-6 in the final. The match went all the way to the final leg. Raymond won the last set 6-5 in a tie-breaker. Raymond hit 21 maximums. Let's hope it was Darts for Windows 2005 who helped Barney to win the title :)

    The Ladbrokes.com WDC 2007 datbase is now up to date. The database contains all 60 matches. It's funny to see that the stats from PDC (or SKY Sports) are uncorrect. Before the last quarter final between Taylor-Webster, the number of 180's in this tournament were 434, but Sid Waddell claimed it was 431. I'm now going to count every single one just to make sure Darts for Windows 2005 has the correct number of 180's and I'm pretty sure that it has !
    09:37 CET
    I hav now counted every single 180's from all the scoresheets and the correct number is 443 180's so far in the tournament so Sid was wrong.

    • When assigning a match by drag and drop from the "Matchlog" or a match is started from the drawsheet of a tournament, the background colour of the box will change to indicate that the match has a match assigned to it.

    Darts for Windows 2005 version 2.2.0.23 has now been released. This time I have tried to log most of the changes, but it was to many small changes to show all changes in the changelog :)
    Changelog:
    • Added option to turn off the black stats screen on match end. This new option is located from the menu "Settings -> Options".
    • Fixed a bug in import players from external database. Sometimes the import would stop and display an error message.
    • Fixed bug when restoring a match. Sometimes the score was sendt to the wrong side of the scoresheet even if the arrow indicating who's throwing was pointing at the correct side.
    • Fixed bug when recording throws on doubles. There were no check if the previous rest score was a legal outshot or not when the new rest score was 50 or below (a possible throw on double). Example: The rest score is 188, you throw 140 and the program would ask you if you had a shot on a double because you left 50 or less.
    • When starting a match from the drawsheet and then swap players side (left to right or opposite), the result of the match would displayed oposite and also the wrong player would be moved to the next round because there were no checking for the players id, only the position the player had in the drawsheet (upper is left side, lower is right side). This is now fixed.
    • Added support for scrolling with the mouse wheel in the tournament screen.
    • Fixed a bug in the screen showing legs and outshots. An outshot is not dependant on the gameformat, only legs is affected by the gameformat.This has been fixed. The program now ignores the gameformat when showing outshots. It does not matter if you play 201 or 1001. A 170 outshot is the same anyway. A 12 dart 301 is not the same as a 12 dart 501....
    • Added a check for internet connection when clicking on the link "I'm allready registered - Get my unlock code" in the registration dialog box. No use to click on the link if not connected to the internet.
    • Added the option to edit some of the settings (title,description and gameformat) in an existing tournament in the "Tournament" screen.
    • Added a little extra width on the brackets in the "Tournament" screen (just to fit fex. "Raymond van Barneveld,NL" and other "wide named" players)

    23.12.2006
    13:45 CET
    The new version of DfW is a little delayed because of implementing a couple of new functions. In the new version there will be support for importing matches from external DfW databases.
    I also want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas !
    The Ladbrokes.com database will probably go online tomorrow.

    I have noticed that quite a lot of the downloaders of Darts for Windows 2005 is trying to download the unlock code directly from DfW. There's nothing wrong about that, but you have to buy a license and register the serial number in my database to get this to work :)
    Darts for Windows is not a freeware program.

    19.12.2006
    21:02 CET
    A new version of DfW is just around the corner. I will also publish a database (probably tomorrow) with some of the matches from Ladbrokes.com 2007. I only have Darts TV so I record the sound first and then fill inn all the scores by listening to the recordings. The complete drawsheet with all the results will also be included in the same database.

    I'm considering to exclude Google from indexing my pages. Why ? .... because Google is not just indexing pages for searching on Google, but they also try to register fake persons on my forum to get access to the members list and the member email to spread SPAM !!!!
    There's no doubt about it. I work with computers and networks and know exactly how things work and I can also track down who's the owner of IP addresses. Google Inc is responsible for all the IP addresses I have found so far, so beware... Googe is not just Googeling......
    From my web server logs I can see that Google first scan my pages (no problem...) and then try to register with some fake email and fake names (and fake email address) on my forum...

    I'm considering to include support for Pentathlon in Darts for Windows. I was the Norwegian Pentathlon Champion in 1988 and I really loved the format. It would be very good for practice if I add the possibillity to play a complete Pentathlon against the computer. I will also try to make it possible to run a complete 20 player Pentathlon tournament in DfW with a live points table.

    When installing 2.2.0.16 you have to reenter your unlock code.I'm sorry for this, but I had to do some changes in the encryption to get Darts for Windows 2005 to work with Windows Vista.

    Changelog:

    • When entering the result of a match in the drawsheet of a tournament, the result was not saved (fixed)
    • It's no longer allowed to do a random draw without filling up the drawsheet first (this was a bug)
    • Added an option to use a filter when improting players from the WDF rankings. The filter also supports * as a wildcard. The filter is case insensitive.
    • Added the option to fill inn the number of "bye" players when setting up a tournament. Fex. if you have 57 players you must use a 64 players draw and add 7 "bye" players to fill up the draw. "Bye" players is filled inn from the last match of the first round in the draw and up.
    • A "bye" player is now shown in bold in the drawsheet.

    New in this version:
    • It's now possible to setup a full tournament and do a automatic (random) draw.
      Look at this article on how to set it up.
    • It's now possible to import players directly from the world rankings(at the moment there are 650 names in the WDF's database) by a click of a button.
    • When printing out scoresheets, a black divider line was drawn too long. This is now fixed.
    • When using the program on stage most players does not like to see their own averages. The option to turn this off has been there for a while (from the options menu), but I have now added a popup menu when you right click in the same panel as the averages from where you can turn the averages on or off.
    • When printing out a county match (BDO styled printout), the printout will now print 6 matches on each page regardless of the number of legs played.
    • When starting a new match you must now decide which side starts the match. Normally the left player always goes first, but sometimes this is not the case.
    • I don't remember the rest of the improvements.... :)

    In 1998 I was responsible for all the statistics in the Europe Cup held in Oslo, Norway. At that time I used 'Darts for Windows 95' for all the stats.
    A couple of days ago I got a request from Holland for the scores and stats from that tournament. I managed to find some of the data and electronic scoresheets so I imported the data into a Darts for Windows 2005 database. The database contains the ladies pairs and singles semi-finals (can't find the finals at the moment) and the mens semi's and finals from singles, pairs and teams. Most of the players are still well known.... :). The singles was won by Co Stompe and Denise Cassidy.

    Darts for Windows 2005 was used by the BDO at the televised British Internationals 2006 with great success. For those of you who watched the darts on Eurosport, you may have noticed that there were no markers on stage. Darts for Windows 2005 was used as an electronic scoresheet on stage using a large LCD screen/tv standing to the left of the players. It's nice to see that others follow in the fotsteps of NorwegianDarts Federation who did the same first time in 1995 (no markers on stage). The database from British Internationals 2006 is available for download in the "download dfw databases" section on the right side.

    02.04.2006
    By a mistake, I deleted the demo version from the download folder :) . This is now fixed. The Premier League match between Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld is now available for download (see download section on the right side). You need Darts for Windows 2005 to view the match

    Raymond van Barneveld did a 9 dart leg live on tv tonight. You can download Barney's 9 dart leg from the "download video" section on the right side. The size is just over 5 megabytes.

    15.03.2006
    A new version is out. It is now possible to hide averages in the scoresheet. The reason for this is that some players find it disturbing to view their averages during a match, especially if you use the the program on stage and there is no marker or paper scoresheet, only a monitor with Darts for Windows 2005 showing the sorces and rest. To turn averages on or off, click on the "Options" menu and then on "Misc" in the list box on the left side.

Support for live scoring will also be included in verson 2.0 and of course, remote play via internet. I may also include a possibility to hook up to a live match on the internet for viewing the scores (a kind of live scoring). I may also develope a new lite version of DfW with only the possibility for playing against the computer in singles mode. This will be a cheap version (£10). If anybody has any comments or suggestions, drop be a mail.

    A new BETA vesrion has now been released.
    Changelog:
  • Fixed a bug in the "Restore a match" function. When restoring a match, the arrow pointing to the active scoresheet did not work correctly. Most of the time it was pointing to the oposite scoresheet. This is now fixed. Note: If you restore a match saved before this version, the bug is still there. At least one score must be entered before the bug is fixed.
  • Added the support to convert the playing format from a leg match to set match or from a set match to leg match. This is very handy if you have started a match and you have not set the correct playing format. You can convert the match at ANY stage.
    Example: You are chalking a live match using Darts for Windows. You started the program, entered the players names, started the game, and suddenly in leg three you discover that the playing format has been set to "Best of unlimited legs". The match was supposed to be "Best of 5 sets, 5 legs". What do I do ?
    Move the mouse between the two scoresheets to the lower part of the panel dividing the scoresheets and a new button with a hint saying "Configure playing format" appears (it disappears if you move the mouse to far....). Click on the button and the rest should be self explaining...
    You can also convert fex. a set match from best og 5 legs in the set to best of 3 legs in the set. The program will then convert (from the beginning of the match) legs won into the correct number of sets won.

In this form total stats pr. player in the database is shown (matches played, won, lost, tons, ton+, 180's, single dart average, 3 dart average, 100+ checkouts) + average pr. match. This is vey useful for tournaments (like Lakeside 2006) to get total stats for the whole tournament.
    View a sample here in PDF format.

    Note:
    If your Darts for Windows 2005 database is too old, the average pr. match is not available (just the totals).

    The database for World Cup 2005 has also been updated.
    The World Cup 2005 database did not have the information on who played the 17th. leg in the mens team final. There were also two other 17 legs mens team matches who lacked same information. This is now updated.

    Changelog

A new menuitem has been added with the caption "Print match resume (only the stats and result)". This report prints out all details about the team match like average, tons, legs won and so on for each player. This page is also appended when printing a team match in the "print teamname vs. teamname" menu (scoresheet mode).
  • When printing a team match in "print teamname vs. teamname" mode, the total average and stats for each player is added to each leg in the bottom of each page.
  • Added the URL to DfW in the caption of the main page and to the footer of all reports. The reason for this is the forthcoming use of this program at the World Championship at Lakeside in January :)

    prior version when opening the averages form.
    Recompiling of the program with no change in the code, solved
    the problem. Sorry for that.

    A new version is out.
    Changelog:
    It's now possible to download latest version by clicking on the link in "Info | About".
    Changed the text color in the links in "Info | About".
    When doing a "Undo" after a game shot, the data for the leg was saved twice. Fixed.
    When doing a "Undo" the stats was not always updated with the changes. Fixed.
    When deleting a match from the "Matchlog" the data for the deleted match was not removed from the stats table. Fixed.
    The deleting of a match in the matchlog will only affect all new matches from this version. If deleting older matches saved with a prior version, it will not be deleted correctly from the stats table. Sorry for this.
    Added a new table who saves all stats from a single match, making it easier and faster to get the stats for a specific match.

    03.12.2005
    A new version is close to be released. From this date, a changelog for new versions will
    be published on this page. I'we discovered a few bugs in the "Undo" function and also
