June 6th 2017 - New version of Engarde: 9.646

Improvement of the allocation of referees by quarter when there is a mix of neutral referees on the quarters and referees who are not.
Give the criterion "Neutral referees on 1/4" the value "If possible".

Possibility in a base of competition XML file, to indicate the 4 title lines of the documents, example:
<BaseCompetitionIndividuelle .....
TitreLong="World Cup juniors saber women ind."
Titre1=" World Cup juniors"
Titre2="Saber Juniors Women Individual"
Titre3="Palaiseau - France"
Titre4="28 May 2017" ...>

Formulas with division 1 (with 8 or 16) and division 2 in which all places from 1 to 16 are fenced.

Avast users: Avast CyberCapture currently block Engarde execution of the new version. If you do not need new features, please do not update now.
You can modify the settings of Avast so that CyberCapture does not block by default: in the Avast's "General" settings panel select "allow me to decide" under "Enable CyberCapture".

March 17th 2017 - New version of Engarde: 9.645

Bug fixed in formulas with special situations.

14th February 2017 - New version of Engarde : 9.643

  • Pools by level can be made for the last round (see manual).
  • Formulas are described with more details. They are available in French and English.
  • Allocation of referees : it is now possible to add available referees.
  • Team : the list of the teams and the general ranking documents include the names of the fencers.
  • Results XML files : the matches of the pools are now listed in the same order in which they were fenced.

30th November 2016 - New version of Engarde : 9.642

  • New formulas with tables of 4 or 8 or 16 per levels. This type of formula is interesting when we do not want the weakest fencers to encounter the strongest fencers in the tableaux.
    There is a small manual for this formula (Help menu | Recent manuals in English).
  • New draw to decide the team order (123 or 456) for the classic teams (as for the mixed teams).
  • When there is a barrage in the ranking of the pools, Engarde proposes first to take all the fencers in barrage.
