Prelims vs Finals

Ok, I am having an issue that others are having as far as races that have multiple heats end up going into the pre-lims, which I don't want but it automatically does it.  I have went and made the changes, by clicking the event and getting rid of prelims.  At times it fixes the problem, but a couple of times it has gotten rid of everything causing the event to error.  Tonight I have 4 races of 10 heats each that did it and it won't score.  My only thought is I have to rebuild it.  Is there…See More

"Downgrade to 3.74 and you should be okay. When I release 3.76 it should be fixed. I made some changes to the database structure and it made Athletic.net download angry. But has already been fixed for next update."

"Set up the network a day or two before hand and have the people who will be operating the computers on the day of the meet running the computers at the practice session. You can trouble shoot easier when ther is no pressure."

The linking of the two computers is explained on the finishlynx web site and manuals.

One way to do what you want is to have a hub/switch that has a port for every Ethernet device you want connected , EG, one for every camera, one for each computer and if you use a net work printer that as well.

Assign a fixed TCP/IP(4) address to the computers,  make sure that the last three digits  are at least 10 numbers apart in the last set of numbers for the address. The Finish lynx program will assign the ip numbers to each camera it finds on the network and the numbers increase one at a time going up from the address of the timing computer.

Turn file sharing on for both computers.  and share the folder that you are putting the Photo finish information files in.  The file can be on either computer but Race tab has a default sub folder labeled timing sessions which is easiest to use. 

In Race tab set the interface to Finish Lynx and check all for auto import and export of files.  ( the RT will write a .evt  a .sch and a .ppl file into shared folder)

In Finish lynx start the program, go to options and select "DATABASE"

source is files, precision is thousandths

input and output directory is the share folder that RT is writing the files into.

You ignore anything that seems to say serial

you turn write .lif on.

After that in finish lynx you load the schedule , click on the picture of the Rolodex with the question mark .  and then tell the finish lynx program to go to a particular race, either by typing in the event number, round and heat or scrolling through the list of event.

After the race is evaluated Finish lynx will write a .lif (information file) when you save the race or tell the program to write an .lif (file banner- save lif)

In the events window of race tab select the event and heat you want, click on get times and the program brings in the .lif and the results appear for the race.

Does this make sense to you?
