GAME RUNNER ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • 09/07/2020 The open/close pool now has an option to open or close ALL weeks at once. It's a checkbox. Most game runners won't need this, it's really only for those pools where the players pick the whole year up-front. But you can use it if you want.
  • 09/01/2020 When collecting "extra" information like real name, email address, and phone numbers of your players, there was a bug that could let the user duplicate his user name. If he created a new user (after entering his phone number for example), if they hit the BACK key on the browser, then changed the initial password to the new password, it would create a duplicate user. This is fixed, and also the whole process of collecting player email, phone number, and real name was improved from an ease of use perspective.
  • 09/28/2019 For those of you that use college games, I know have fixed the program to load in games / spreads automatically. It used to use the "Sheridan's Lines" page, but that doesn't work anymore. Now, you can find the games/lines at sports illustrated (si.com). I find them by searching in google like this: "college football spreads betting lines odds site:si.com". In your game runner menu, click the Paste In College Games link. Then just copy/paste from the sports illustrated page into the program, and you get to select which (or all) the college games you want to load, and it will pull in the lines for you also.
  • 10/07/2018 PHONE ACCESS PROBLEMS FIXED! Many players could not access the site when using their cell phone and when not on WI-FI. It worked OK on wi-fi. It also worked on older phones like my iphone 5. But the newer iphone 7's and 8's, as well as newer androids, it didn't work. Turns out my site was not set up correctly for IPv6. This is the newer type if IP addresses. We are running out of the old ones. So I was struggling for weeks trying to get IPv6 working. Couldn't get it to work! Finally I had to hire someone from guru.com to help. This guy was great, he got it all working within a day. It took him a while though. A lot of trial and error. Anyway, now everything is working. Your players should be able to access the site from their phone whether they are on data or on wi-fi now!
  • 11/05/2017 Massively improved the display on cell phones for most of the programs! It looks MUCH better on a phone now... Still have not figured out why the iphone 7 won't display my site unless you are on WiFi: if there is anyone on an iphone 7 that CAN get it work on "wireless" (that is, not connected to WiFi), please let me know how you did it... I have an iphone 5 and it works fine on that, also on any of our android devices here. It seems to be just iphone 7 that is the problem.. I'm wondering if that fact that the site is not https is the problem? If anyone can help, please let me know... (I know, I'm supposed to be the expert but I can't figure it out...)

    OLD ANNOUNCEMENTS - A HISTORY OF NEW FEATURES ADDED TO THE SYSTEM

    CLICK HERE TO SEE OLD ANNOUNCEMENTS

    Pool backups: Game-Runners are responsible to back up up your pool!. Should there be any system failures, loss of data, etc., you should have a backup. castle64.com is not responsible for any lost data. To make a backup, simply do a Show Picks near your pool cutoff, and SAVE IT TO DISK. This will be your backup each week. We have software that can RECOVER YOUR ENTIRE POOL just from the "Show Picks" files! This backup can also be used to prove or disprove that anyone is cheating! You may want to have one of your players do a Show Picks backup each week just to prove that the game-runner is not changing his picks after the fact.
