Pre race set up

Postby Sussexguy44 » Thu Oct 14, 2021 9:51 am

Hiya,

I am new to the automation side of things. I have set up a new lay system and the triggers are in place. I have also set up the system to work at 3 mins before the off on each race. Do I need to do anything to ensure that the system will automatically scroll through the races selected in my quick pick list? How do I know that the system wont continue in play?

Any help would be welcome.

There are options to auto select the market a set time from the off when logging to excel. Basically it looks at the times in the quick pick list and uses those.

To stop in play you'd just need to include another condition in your trigger to not bet if D2 = "In Play"

On my phone so not at my pc but they're options on the top menu somewhere or if linking using the via the excel quick link it's an option in that menu to set the time before the off each market is selected

Thanks for your reply,

Would you know how I set up this trigger. At present the formula is =IF(AC6=3,"LAY",""). I guess I need to put a formula in the came cell only saying yes to the lay if E2 states "not in play". Any thoughts would be welcome.

You just change the AC=3 to AND(AC=3,$E$2="Not In Play") so

=IF(AND(AC=3,$E$2="Not In Play") ,"LAY","")

Typing on my phone at the moment so check it works before going live

Hi,

Thanks again this worked with the addition of a 6 after AC. Thanks. The ongoing challenge I have is that I set up 6/7 races in Quick Pick list with an instruction that the trigger will action itself 6 mins before the off. Sadly this does not seem to happen on every race as the set up does not automatically move to the next race. Not sure how to do this?? I have ticked "quick Pick reload triggers select first market"

If you're using the excel multiple sheets quick link you'd enter the time to load markets when setting the intial link up as below by setting the time in the Auto Select Minutes Before Off box

If you don't use that to link to excel then you set the auto select from the top menu as below

Hiya,

Thanks again. I now use the Quick Pick List and set at 5 min auto selection. There are times when the auto selection does not work; it just stays on the previous race. It there a known reason for this? Di I need to enter another trigger or the clear function?

TY

What do you mean by using "the Quick Pick List".

Do you mean the Excel Quick Link? If so you'd have to make sure the excel sheet was opened using the Excel Quick Link. No extra triggers need to be entered as the program handles the market switching and just uses the off times from the markets in the quick pick list. Only reason I imagine it could freeze is if you have some vba on the sheet that's frozen due to an error and stopped the connection between BA and excel

Sports betting software from Gruss Software


The strength of Gruss Software is that it’s been designed by one of you, a frustrated sports punter, and then developed by listening to dozens of like-minded enthusiasts.

Gruss is owned and run by brothers Gary and Mark Russell. Gary discovered Betfair in 2004 and soon realised that using bespoke software to place bets was much more efficient than merely placing them through the website.

Gary built his own software and then enhanced its features after trialling it through other Betfair users and reacting to their improvement ideas, something that still happens today.

He started making a small monthly charge so he could work on it full-time and then recruited Mark to help develop the products and Gruss Software was born.

We think it’s the best of its kind and so do a lot of our customers. But you can never stand still in this game and we’ll continue to improve the software if any more great ideas emerge.
