Obsolete: GoDraw Development

GoPlayers.gdi was generated from the ratings update on 06/05/07:

GoDraw V 6.2.3 is now available for general use as from 26/04/06:


You can download the latest version of the list of players used by the GoDraw program. See the link at the bottom of the page. You will download a file called 'GoPlayers.gdi'. Copy this file to the same folder which contains the program GoDraw.exe - this is usually GoDrawSys. Then when you re-run GoDraw, newly entered players will have names, grades and clubs as up to date as the last ratings publication.

NEW in version 6.2.3:

Draw displays Grades rather than MMS. Also during editing of draw or Manual draw again we show Grades, not MMS

Update DrawMaster section to refer to new Handbook rather than repeating the material.
NEW in version 6.2.2:

The editing of the rounds field is now achieved via a drop down list for improved reliability.

Extended register import fields to include separate columns for Given and Family names. Also now accepts the fields Group and Rounds

New section Register Edits explains how to navigate round the register, delete players and edit any of the fields.

Update to include all the new register import functionality.
NEW in version 6.2.0:

Deletion restarts autocompletion

You can scroll through the list of names in the player list using the up/down arrow keys without opening the list.

You can import player details into the register from a text file. Please read the new section 'Import Register' in the Manual for format details.
