What's New

There are two new features in this update along with a new data pack, and host of improvements to existing features. The new features are

  • the ability to add information about your coaches and the grades they will be coaching during the competition.
  • automatic checking for new data packs each time the programme is updated. There will be no more worrying about whether you have installed the latest pack or not.

The new data pack included in this update, covers all the changes and requirements of the new Gymnastics NZ Handbook for 2023. If you already have a previous version of EntryManager installed, the update process will ask you to install the new pack during the update. So please watch out for this.

For those of you new to EntryManager, the new data pack will appear in the wizard which helps you set up EntryManager for the first time. If you are in New Zealand please use the data pack option to configure the programme for use.

All of your existing data on athletes, judges, entries and cards will be kept during the update. However if you copy entries from a past competition, the two extra grades in the FIG division will require you to adjust the copied entries to fit the new grades.

The most visible change you will see in the new programme is the menu items on the first page have moved around a bit to accommodate the ability to include coaches in the files sent to competition organisers. Otherwise all of the screens you use are unchanged.

The short video guides in the Support section of this website are still relevant so please have a look at them if you are unsure on how the programme works.

Installing Score Manager

If you have ever installed a programme on your computer then you already know how to download and install ScoreManager and its extensions.

ScoreManager & Extensions use a customised installer to guide you through the installation process and ensure the programmes are installed successfully.

The simple steps involved are : –

  • select the file you want from the download links below
  • download and save the file on your computer
  • if you chose –
  • an EXE file then double click on the downloaded file
  • a ZIP file then double click on the file to unzip it to a folder on your computer and then double click on the file called Setup.exe that you will find within that folder
  • follow the prompts shown by the installation programme once it has started

The EXE file is definitely the easier but some anti-virus programmes will not let save EXE files downloaded from the internet. Try downloading and using the ZIP file if this happens to you.

Microsoft Access

ScoreManager and its extensions require an appropriate version of Microsoft Access, or Microsoft Access runtime, to be installed on your computer. However the installation programme will check for this automatically and prompt you to download and install the correct files if needed.

If you already have Microsoft Access 2007 runtime on your computer please uninstall the runtime programme before installing ScoreManager. In general any programmes which used the Access 2007 runtime will work just the same when using Access 2010 runtime. However if you find difficulties with your other programmes you may need to consider installing ScoreManager on another computer.

Data Packs

DataPacks are small Access programmes which will help you configure ScoreManager your country’s requirements. They set up things such as standard grade names and descriptions, age and gender requirements, application of ToF  & displacement, method of recording scores, etc.. The data packs are free! and best installed before you create your first competition. Doing it this way will make sure that your competition is set up correctly before you start. If you would like a data pack for your country or state then please get in touch with us using our contact page.

Starting and Running ScoreManager

ScoreManager and its extensions are started by either double clicking on the programme icon on your desktop or by clicking once on the programme name in your Start Menu. 

However you will see a difference between the way ScoreManager starts and the way DisplayManager and PanelRecorder start. Also you will see a difference between the way ScoreManager starts the first time and how it starts after you have created your first competitions.

ScoreManager

First Run

The first time that you start ScoreManager it will automatically create a temporary or trial licence for you. This trial licence is for you to have a look around and decide if ScoreManager is right for you and your organisation. We hope that it is!

During the period of this trial licence you will be able to access and use all of ScoreManager’s functions and features. Any competitions, athletes, entries, etc. which you may load in to ScoreManager during this time will be kept and still be there when you move on to a full licence.

Before Your First Competition

Each time it starts ScoreManager will ask whether you want to set up a new competition or open its Settings menu so that you can configure the settings for your competitions and create any Standard Grades. Both of these things are covered in depth in the User Manual.

Once you have created your first competition ScoreManager will go directly to the main menu without this reminder.

DisplayManager and Panel Recorder

Both the DisplayManager and PanelRecorder programmes start a little differently to the main ScoreManager programme.

Before they open their main screens they will ask you to find and link to the ScoreManager data file which has the information about the competition they will be working with. They do this because neither of them have their own data file and rely on the ScoreManager data file to hold the information they need to do their jobs.

The ScoreManager data file to find in both cases is called ScoreMgr_Data and will be in the folder  C:/OutBounce/ScoreManager/ScoreManagerData on the computer which has ScoreManager installed. If you are running the DisplayManager or PanelRecorder from another computer you will find this file in the shared folder ScoreManagerData in the Network section of your File Explorer under the name of the computer with ScoreManager installed.
