A recent evening was run using ScoreBridge and BridgeMates.
(7 Table Dbl Hesitation Mitchell.)
Everything seemed to be fine. All the scores were entered on the table-top units.
But when the scorer game to finalise the event ScoreBridge said 13 missing scores,
and I think, BridgeMate Control Software had stopped.
Not sure what happened next, I wasn't there!
When I came to the next evening, I was asked if I could recover the missing scores.
I couldn't work out how to do that easily (or even if it was possible).
Recovering the ScoreBridge Session and linking back to BCS and the dbase was easy.
But BCS was missing the same 13 scores, and all the table-top units had gone to 'End of Session.'
Any ideas how, or if, I can get "old" scores out of the table-top units?
We decided to proceed with the new session.
I am now trying to finalise the first evening.
I propose to score up using those scores that have been received.
It is nearly a complete movement.
I have scores for every pair over 8 1/3 rounds, and for one table an extra board.
I can set all the missing results as 'Not played' and I know ScoreBridge will generate a result.
Should I use all the received scores,
or should I be 'symmetrical' and change the extra board to 'not played' as well?
