View Full Version : New Beta Released.

A new Beta 1.1i has been released.

I've released this as a Beta as I have made some changes to the Bet placement & hedging logic, so please try in either training mode or small stakes until you are happy with it.

Bug Fixes
This version also fixes a few minor bugs in version 1.1h. (http://www.geekstoy.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=78)

It also fixes a bug that causes the bank to zero out in training mode on occasions when bets are placed.

New Functionality
Optimal greening on Tennis Markets. { AKA The TradeShark Hedge. } Support has been added for cross selection hedging / greening on 2 selection markets. { NB This only works on 2 selection markets & no others. }

In previous versions, hedging was carried out slightly less than optimally on each runner. In this version, by default optimal cross selection greening is applied.

This is mainly for the tennis freaks, and may take a bit of getting used to for most. In this mode in 2 runner markets, your hedge position for the entire market & not just the selection is shown in the green up places on the grid & the ladder, including the Ladder profit and loss column.

This may be confusing for some initially, so there is an option to switch it off in the main info bar menu called "Tradeshark Hedging" { He didn't invent it BTW, just kept nagging me to do it. }


Seeing as Tradeshark has been nagging my ass to do this for ages, maybe he can do a more comprehensive write up for me. { Yo TS forum members! Keep nagging him till he does! ;)}


Here are some bets on this afternoons game...
