Beta versions here of work in progress and ideas that are being tested out. If you have a few minutes to spare, give them a try and help to improve Sailwave by giving some feedback.

VERSION 2.18.5 BETA

 

This update is supplied as a full install containing the Sailwave.exe version 2.18.5  a new SWHelper.exe, new SWISAF.exe and examples.   You need to download from the link below and run the installer.

http://sailwave.com/download/sailwave/sw2_18_5.exe

Changes in this version from 2.17 are

Scoring SystemOn the rating system tab there is now a tick box at the bottom labelled Excel Link.  If you run NHC in External Debug mode it normally defaults to using the SWNHC3.xls template to perform its calculations.  With this version you can now tick the box Excel link and supply a different name for the template.  In this example it will use the NHC 2015 specification template which is included with this install.  Note at the time of writing – Sailwave don’t recommend the use of the 2015 version other than for experimentation.  The Excel link name is stored within the blw Sailwave file so is remembered for the series.  Future versions of Sailwave will expand the use of the Excel link box.

  • You can now press F2 (Similar to Excel ) to edit a cell.
  • Updated Sailracer functions
  • Some Cosmetic and spelling fixes and minor bug fixes

NOTE:-  As a lot of antivirus programs don’t like the fact that Sailwave can send emails directly they have been generating false positives that the program is a virus, for this reason and also that many people now use web based mail,  the install does not contain the files necessary to send emails.   If you require this function you can download the following zip file and unzip it to the same directory that contains the Sailwave.exe typically C:\Program Files (x86)\Sailwave\

Please let me have any feedback so that we can release this as a full version jon@sailwave.com

 

VERSION 2.17.1 BETA

Changes in this version from 2.17.0 are

  • This version removes the error message that the scored position is greater than the number of competitors –  This makes it easier to delete competitors or complete fleets and rescore without having to readjust there recorded positions – Typically you would have had to use the Tools – Rearrange recorded position tool.
  • Fix a bug in the Tools rearrange recorded position if there is a competitor with a code and no recorded position.  The tool was creating a recorded position of zero which then caused an error when scoring.

This update is supplied as a zip file containing the Sailwave.exe version 2.17.1 and the new SWHelper.exe 1.5.0.   You need to extract the zip and replace the two above files in the directory  C:\Program Files\Sailwave or C:\Program Files (x86)\Sailwave (for 64 bit operating systems) .

VERSION 2.15.0 BETA

This version adds the ability to further control the discards in Qualifier and Finals events. Previous versions allow a discard profile for the event and an additional profile for the maximum no of discards in the finals.  This version adds the ability to add a discard profile for the minimum no of discards in the finals.  So when used in combination with the maximum you can now specify an absolute number of discards in finals, a minimum or a maximum for each race. This is an exe only so for most users please install the full install 2.14.11 below – If you need this additional feature download this from the following link and replace the Sailwave.exe with this one.

Version 2.12.1

You can download Version 2.12.1  from the link below.  Note this is an exe only.

Please do a full install of 2.9.7 and replace the Sailwave.exe with this file renaming it to Sailwave.exe

http://sailwave.com/download/sailwave/sw2_12_1.exe

This version is based on Version 2.11.1 with the following modifications

  • Ability to Join First and Last Names at import – No preprocessing required.
  • Import competitors from csv file has been updated to now allow merging of competitors with the competitors already in the file.  If there is no file loaded then the import is as per the previous version – However if you have competitors already present then the display offers you some more options

Merge

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can then select the box Ignore if competitors exist that match:-

You have 3 options – Typically you would only select one of them.
  1. Sail Number (and Nat) if a competitor already exist with the sail number and the same Nationality (if a Nationality is specified) then the competitor in the csv file will be ignored
  2. Helmname if this is ticked then if there is already a competitor with this name then the one in the csv will be ignored.
  3. There is then a custom selection where you can select any field – you could use Boat to stop entries being duplicated – or if you are importing from an online entry system this may create a unique entry number.  This way you can run the import regularly as new entries are received.

When you click next you get a display showing what has been imported example

importClick Finish and they are visible in the main area.

This version can also join the First and Last names for the Helm and Crew and  put them into a single field.  Note when this option is selected you cannot match on Helmname.

Often the online entry system supply the First and Last names as separate fields but we want them in a single field. This version has 4 special destinations for the mapping of fields

HELMFIRSTNAME
HELMLASTNAME
CREWFIRSTNAME
CREWLASTNAME

These will HELMFIRSTNAME and HELMLASTNAME are concatenated with a space between them into HelmName – If you want you can map them in reverse you then get the Last Name first.  The same is applicable to CREW.

There are also some cosmetic changes of buttons in this version
