Database - New release available - v0.3

No idea where my last post went as I am sure I published it, haven't checked the blog since so have not realised the database was not available.

You can download the new version from here:-


or here:


I recommend before you test the database out before you replace any files, even when you replace the file's, follow the advice below and backup your data. I have made a small video now showing the database, it is only 12minutes long, I recommend viewing however it is up to you. You can find the video at the bottom of this post.

 Important information from the developer, READ FIRST BEFORE UPDATING.

- Backup your old .EXE just in case;
- Backup your trades.db of course;

- Copy the new EXE over the old EXE;

- Run the program!
It will first update your database tables and insert some new data.
Known/Unknown Issues
- "Please take a look at the new graphs to see if they look better for you and what would still need improving. Then I will add those changes for the small graphs. To save some time, the full screen graphs have not yet been filled with data at this point. Easy to do once you give me the green light on the small graphs.
- I am not sure if you can already re-sort your strategies now but I hope you can! Let’s try to find out what would be needed if you can not do that yet in this design.
- That is the last thing that needs to be done: change the update routine to accommodate the new strategies and sports design. that screen works well for you now, I will finish that.
- I am also wondering if we should add a new sport called “Suarez bite incidents”."
Doesn't look like it it s possible to be able to link strategies to a sport if they have not been pre-linked. I realise this is an issue and will notify the developer, so we can try get this fixed for the next version.

Video: (Available once processed)

Last but not least, PLEASE help support the project by providing feedback.

Trading Database Version 0.3 Available Tonight

Been a month and a half since my last post, was too busy enjoying a holiday out in Mexico and taking a break from Tennis to write much.

The new version of the database will be available tonight, I have had access to it for about 3 weeks now, however when the developer sent the E-Mail to me, it got lost in Cyberspace somewhere and I had to message him again asking why it was taking so long to do the updates. In reality I've only had it for the past few days unfortunately.

He's made quite a few improvements, which I will list later on tonight when I get the chance to upload it and mention the new changes. Still a few bugs in this version I have found, however it is coming along nicely, so hopefully Version 0.4 will be out in a month or two's time.

I will post updates regarding my paper betting, so far the profit stands at around £7k (Grandslams haven't been included). Over 3 set matches it has been a bit breakeven, however most of my data is only on the Clay surface, once I can get more Hard court data I can start to see if I should bother continuing to record.

That's about it for the time being.
