Introduction

This page is intended to describe the procedure for scoring a match in Practiscore then importing the match into EzWinScore for uploading the activity report to USPSA.org

Assumptions

The following assumptions are made:

  • EzWinScore 4.10 (or above) is installed on a PC
  • A directory named 'C:\EzData' has been created (alternatively, use a name of your own choosing)
  • The match database and reports are being kept in a directory named 'USPSA' under 'My Documents'
  • You have the ability to move files between Practiscore and Windows using email or Dropbox

Process

In Practiscore

  • Create new match
  • Add stages
  • Add competitors (Do not leave any competitors assigned to squad 0)
  • Score match
  • Update classifications (in sync tab)
  • Upload results to practiscore.com (in match tab, view results)
  • Export match registration (in sync tab)
  • Export match stages & scores (in sync tab)

In Windows

  • Move reg.txt (the match registration file) to c:\EzData (overwrite any existing files)
  • Unzip the exported match stages & scores to c:\EzData (overwrite any existing files)

In EzWinScore

  • Create new match (File->New Match)

  • Name database something like GA12_2013-06-04.db
  • Fill out match info Setup->Info)
  • Enter match name ('SAPSC FUN SHOOT 2013-06-04')

  • Click 'Calculate'
  • (Poke around, verify scores seem correct, click 'Final' and/or 'All' radio buttons give different views)
  • Verify 'Stage' and 'By Division' are selected and click 'Calculate' (only necessary if you changed views)

Notes

  • Leaving competitors assigned to squad 0 causes a problem when importing into EzWinScore
  • If the 'Allow Reentries' is not set to 'Yes' during competitor import, no competitors will be imported if there are re-entries
  • Practiscore versions prior to 1.5.9 on iOS did not correctly mark stages as classifiers
