It give you a running total as to what place you are in in each category and a running overall total. The problem with their system is you can't enter the name of the player chosen and instead have to search for it in table. In a draft with 90 seconds between picks such as CBS that system does not work. You just don't have enough time to enter the picks.

Your system might work as you can enter the name. Try it with a 90 second timer and throw some picks in that are made immediately to see if would work in a live draft. In a live draft with longer intervals that would definitely work.

This is the software I am referring to:

Thanks for the plug... but actually you don't have to search through a table to find a player to select. Perhaps you didn't know but there is a command explosion algorithm running on the player input box, where all you need to do (say you are looking for Pujols) is type the letter 'P' and you go right to the first player alphabetically with a last name starting with the letter 'P', then you type in a 'U' and it would go to the first person alphabetically with a 'Pu' in their last name which would pretty much take you right to Pujols. It's a very very fast way to enter player names, faster than what you would want to do by typing in the whole name. :)

I just looked for those players, and they are there. Maybe the filters weren't set up correctly? Make sure you have "All" or "Pitchers" or "SP" selected, and "Mixed" for league...

Teams/Positions now customizable!

Postby MmmmBeer » Fri Feb 24, 2006 10:41 pm

You can now enter your own team names, and choose how many of each position you draft...

I've also included another set of projections that you can toggle between.

What's left?

Well the most obvious and I imagine difficult thing to implement is that I'd like to enter my own projections into the table. Gonna guess that isn't something easy to implement.

RE: importing projections

I think there's probably a fairly simple way to do it, but it would be very touchy (everything has to be formatted exactly right). If enough people want me to add it, I'd be willing to try...

I just remembered that the LF/RF/CF positions probably won't work yet... I'll get to those this weekend.

BUG FIX: RP/SP positions not filled

Postby MmmmBeer » Sun Feb 26, 2006 1:49 am

I noticed that the software was not filling in the RP/SP positions - every pitcher would go to a P spot, or else on the bench. I've fixed it.

PLEASE let me know if you find any problems or wierd behavior!

BUG FIX: LF/CF/RF drafting, added 4x4 option

Postby MmmmBeer » Sun Feb 26, 2006 7:44 am

I've added the OF breakdown, so you can now do LF/CF/RF drafting.

I also added the option to use 4x4 scoring in the "team totals" chart.
