MyDarts
Hi Everyone,

I've written a simple little program that I use for training. It may not be of interest for a lot of people as it looks like other things (like the pro darter) site already do a lot of what this does, and more besides, but I thought I'd share it anyway.

I think the main "selling point" about it (even though it's free) which might make it a little different is that it allows you to play against your old games to improve yourself, or even swap files with other users and play against a sort of virtual version of them.

I'll add the intro from the readme file so you can see if you think it might be of any use to you, and if you have any suggestions for improvements or find any problems with it then let me know and I'll try and sort things for any later version. Bear in mind that my programming is only slightly better than my darts though Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

========================================

MyDarts is a simple command line application which records and saves your scores to a database as you play. This database is then used to create a virtual "opponent" to play against, with the aim of beating your old performances and improving your game. The database is saved to a simple text file so it's easy to swap database files with other users to create a library of virtual opponents to train against! MyDarts also functions as a simple electronic score board for 2 player games, with the option to record your scores to a separate database for each player.

MyDarts supports scoring for 501, 301 and Round the Clock games, any of which can be played as single games or in matches of multiple legs.

Sorry, I forgot to specify that... it's Windows only at the moment, but it's a fairly simple program that just runs in a terminal window so it should be possible to make Mac or Linux version of it as well. I was waiting to see if there was any demand for that before I gave it a go though. Looks like I have my answer Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Will fetch the other laptop so and try it out Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I find these sort of things very interesting and if it became available for my Mac I'd happily use it alongside or even instead of Prodarter. I like the idea of playing against a previous game of mine and it's the first I've heard of such an idea!

I presume you work in an IT department of some sorts that allowed you to make this in your own time? Thinking about maybe venturing into IT world myself next year when I'm finished with school Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

Yes I work in software testing, but I come from a non-computing background so I was doing this as a learning exercise as well as much as anything. Porting it to Mac or Linux would also be a learning exercise, but hopefully not too difficult Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.
