Password Input Box

Quote:
I noticed that in the Registration tab, in the area where I input the information for my TrackMaster account, the password box it displays my entire password and not the dots that hides my password. What causes this?
It's a change in V2.1. Because - people kept forgetting what their Password was, and kept writing me or TrackMaster to find out - LOL! So, I put the passwords in the open (thinking RDSS is typically used in privacy).

However - I will take this as a suggestion to put a checkbox next to the various Password inputs to toggle between display or hide password.

Thanks for the query/suggestion!

Ted

Hi Ted
I know you said that showing the horses individual POWER LINES was redundant but I still would like to have them with the color coding like shown in many earlier races that you did from Woodbine

Rx3 suggestion

Hi Ted,

With the Live Tote capability back in play, It would seem possible (not sure if the Live tote is capable of fetching the projected Win price like AmWager does) to calculate a $Net based on 1) the Rx3 win percentage and 2) the live tote price.

Example, say a horse has an Rx3 win percentage of 40% and its live tote price is Even (1-1). Since we know that Even on a $2 bet is $4.00, you could multiply 40x4 and divide by 100 to get that horse's $Net on a flat single wager. In this case, this Rx3 horse would have a $Net of $1.60 based on its relative win percentage from Rx3. If the horse's price went higher, the $Net would increase and vice versa. As pacelines and/or contenders are chosen or eliminated, the $Net's would also change.

Obviously, when you're betting multiple horses to win, the $Net would change. However, when looking at runners individually, this would be a good gauge of value relative to the live odds and could be a good add-on to RDSS. It could also be a good thing to model, as it could show if our winning contenders are profitable in relation to the final tote. However, since last minute odds changes after the bell always happen (and we can't bet post-hoc), it may not be totally accurate, as we can only play positive $Net runners before the race goes off. Still, how do our Rx3 40% runners usually fare? Are they typically underlaid or overlaid? Hope I explained this clear.

Hi Ted

Is there a way, that when RDSS crashes. RDSS just shuts down

As I have talked to mentioned to you in the past,
When I am at Surf-side race place at Del Mar.
I am using two RDSS's I am watching the tote, I am placing my bets
on my online account , at the very last minute, and I am watching videos from tracks like Parx.
All this at the same time ,on not the greatest laptop .
My RDSS's crashes every few races.

But since the updates now when RDSS crashes. It seems to be going through a long process to try to recover, but it never does. I usefully just shut it down and restart anyway, It is frustrating because while RDSS is trying to fix itself
I can't do anything else. The only answer is shutting down and restarting anyway. So can RDSS just give up once it thinks it should crash

Thanks Bill

Hello Ted,


These are my suggestions:


1. Note aberrant variants by placing them in red so they will standout to the user when picking or confirming pace lines.


2. Where it shows the POR add the POR 1st FR and the SC. This would allow matchers and everyone a better view of the horse as to what pace it can win against, The POR total energy does not tell how it the horse achieved its POH rating.


3.Provide the old Late Energy rating (rating from the stretch call to finish). This would allow the user to compare it to the 3rd FR to better ascertain where high deceleration took place. This could help determine if a horse can further stretch out or needs to cut back to win.


4. On the FPS screen convert those FPS to a scale of 100 similar to TPR so the user can better understand the numbers. Few if any can determine how much a beaten length is using the FPS screen, particularity with different fractions representing different distances.


Hoping Santa comes,
Mitch44

Hi Mitch,

Re: aberrant variants - such a setting is a good idea, and would have to be based on what the user defines as the "normal" range. Some may prefer a looser/tighter range than others.

I also like the idea of a "simplified" FPS. I know that BLAM users have the option of viewing that program's "Master Pace Rating" (Pizzolla's version of Total Energy) and other compounded velocity ratings in either FPS or a simplified version set to a number scale. Not sure if it would be possible to set the other velocity/energy ratings to such a scale, but IMO it would improve upon the Phase I (PMTR) numbers currently available to us in RDSS.

While on the topic of new ideas, I would like to see the TS+F3 on the Segments screen removed (or user option to remove) in favor of the standalone F3, but keeping it on the BL/BL screen as a Supplemental corollary. Validator's MUG screen only showed F1, F2 and F3 on the graph. I know that FTL has mentioned that the TS+F3 basically weighs F3 twice, as F3 is taken into account in getting the TS rating.

Good stuff, Mitch.

Hi Tim,


On unusual variants: the user would still have the ability to set the variants, that would not change but it would immediately alert as to one that is not normal, I.e. last week there were a couple from PRX that had -56's., also not uncommon at MVR. It could be flexible to be say 10 above or below one's settings. We're looking for extremes here.


The PMTR and the FPS are obtained in different ways. FPS are much more accurate but difficult to analyze. I wouldn't advocate changing other formula because their used in many other factors but the FPS screen could be a much greater tool than it presently is Internally the numbers would be the same ,just viewed in a different manner.

Hope your doing well Tim.
