Unfortunately as I have lost the source code for this software in a hard drive crash, the software below is no longer supported and will not work with getscores. It is still available to download for historic reasons.
Q: What is it?
A: This is a program to send the Qso/Mult
summary data from win-test
to W1VE's livescore website
Q: Where do I download the file from?

You need WT V3.7.0 or higher
Other Previous version V0.8 here
V0.5 (1_12_06) available here
and V0.3a also here
Q: What data is sent over?
A: Your callsign, zone, locator, contest, score as well as breakdown of your qsos, multipliers by band and mode. A sample of data submitted can be seen here
Q: What data is NOT sent over?
A: The IARUzone and the dxcc are not yet implemented as this information is not available on the network
Q: How do I use it?
A: Follow the steps below:
- Firstly, download the installer as outlined above
- Run win-test ensuring that you enter all the correct contest/category information
- CQzone/ITUzone/DXCC prefix etc
- Tick enable time distribution across the network
- Go to Options->configure interfaces and ensure that the ethernet network is enabled and note the defaulted boradcast address and port number. You will need both to configure in the wt2livescore software
- Start the wt2livescore program
- In the WinTest config tab, enter the broadcast address and port number as identified before (if it was correctly set-up in WT before then it should be automatically inserted there for you)
- Click open network. That's it! You are now submitting your score to W1VE's website
- To adjust the frequency of your transmission, right click on WT's Summary window (ALT-S) and ensure that Broadcasting on the network is enabled. You can choose how often you want to send your score by configuring the periodicity eg 10 means send score every 10 minutes
Q: What are all the tabs for?
- The leaderboard allows you to browse the current leaderboard, like you would with a browser.
- The Win-test configure window allows you to configure wt2livescore (see FAQ above). It also displays the last submitted score and the response from the server. NB When the network is closed ("CLOSE NETWORK" button) NO SCORE is transmitted!
- The debug tab, shows the xml string that has been transmitted to the server as well as any activity on the WT network that can enable easier debugging
Q: I minimised the window...... and it disappeared! Where has it gone?
A: It's become an icon in the notification area of task-bar (bottom right for most users). If it's red then no scores are posted, if it's green then all should be OK. You can enable/disable scoring by right clicking on the icon. If you double click on this icon then the default window should appear again!
Q: Who is behind this?
A: Marios 5B4WN has written most of the software (with the help of F6FVY and F5MZN). W1VE has written all the web software
