    Quoted from Psw757:

    Found a pretty good deal on a 19.5 led touchscreen, how many columns can fit a screen this size?

    depends on the resolution. if it's 1080p (1920x1080), then about 7. you can also "zoom out" with the browser to fit more.

    #202 85 days ago

    hey FYI i just realized there was a problem with my email account -- if I haven't responded to an email you sent, I apologize. the problem is now resolved.

    #203 84 days ago

    Will it be possible in future releases to add your own style and save it ? makes it easier to apply to all your games without the need to copy paste all css code to each game

    yes! and soon!

    #205 83 days ago

    I understand why you designed iScored to only save one score for each set of initials per game but what if you could add more scores for a given persons initials but only their top score was shown. When you click on their initials to add a new score for a given game you could add a link in the box to see all that persons added scores from best to worst. Just a thought.

    My family is loving the app for WOZ and our arcades!!!

    #206 83 days ago

    that's a neat suggestion. i'll add it to the list. glad you're enjoying it!

    #207 82 days ago

    Im finding it to not be scrolling on a chromebook all of a sudden - any ideas?

    #208 82 days ago

    Or it will scroll all the way one way and then stop

    #209 81 days ago

    Anyone got recommendation on a cheap touch screen monitor to get?

    #210 81 days ago

    Is the 'Enable On-Screen Keyboards' option shown in the screenshot an old feature or one coming up? I'm currently getting the site's keyboard and my iPad's keyboard both showing up when entering a score.

    Haha wtf? Sorry about that, I'll get that fixed tonight!

    #215 80 days ago

    Okay. The onscreen keyboards option is back. I'm working on a fix for the idle scrolling bug as well - that should be fixed soon.

    #216 80 days ago

    Thanks for the quick fix

    Hey everyone! I'm working on the Community Styles feature, where you'll be able to save styles you create, and share them with other iScored users. It's taking a significant fraction of the effort to build the thing in the first place, but that's okay, it's fun.

    Anyway, my question is: can anyone think of a sexier name than "Community Styles"? For some reason that title just makes me think of lame community college recruitment marketing.

    communityStyles (resized).jpg

    This is your future unless you come up with a better name.

    yes folks, this is the level of support you get at 2:30am after 5 beers. Some people sleep. Some people drink. Some people drink and code.

    #219 79 days ago
    Quoted from pezpunk:

    Anyway, my question is: can anyone think of a sexier name than "Community Styles"? [...] Some people drink and code.

    Shared Styles, or considering your current state let's shorten it to Shtyles. *hic!*

    #220 79 days ago

    You don't want my suggestions, unless you want to say it in a robot voice. BTW, sharing is caring.

    How about just refer to it by acronym only? Like "UCS" for "User Created Styles" or "UCSS" for User CSS or whatever.

    #225 79 days ago

    Jumped in and giving iscored a try on the fly. Enhancement requests for @pezpunk :

    1) Allow user to enter/save multiple scores for same game. set = 1000
    2) Increase max number of initials that can be entered. set = 10
    3) Increase max number of games that can be setup for a gameroom. set = 100
    4) Make each gameroom a separate page and increase the max number of pages allowed. set = 50
    5) Allow Admin to delete scores for a single game without deleting setup.
    6) Filters - allow user to filter scores showing a single player’s top score on all games.
    7) Store a guest password by gameroom (or by page) that can be given to guests so that they can log into your gameroom and enter their scores. All guests use same password which Admin can change. Password to be assigned by gameroom to ensure scores are entered under correct collection.

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    Jumped in and giving iScored a try on the fly. Enhancement requests for pezpunk :
    1) Allow user to enter/save multiple scores for same game. set = 1000

    Nah, then the screen would just be a huge grid of the owner's initials for every game -- same problem as the high score lists built into the games. It's basically the problem i was trying to solve with this thing. This app isn't really for one person to track a bunch of their scores on the same machine -- it is more so everyone, including casual players, can easily record, update, and compare their best scores.

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    2) Increase max number of initials that can be entered. set = 10

    This is on the list of future enhancements, and it will get done eventually. The database and underlying code already support it. Unfortunately, there are a whole lot of tedious cosmetic issues involved that make it a bit more work than might be immediately obvious. But it'll get done.

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    3) Increase max number of games that can be setup for a gameroom. set = 100

    There is no limit to the number of games you can set up. The screen scrolls sideways to show an unlimited number of games. If you want to fit more games on the screen, you can either zoom out using your browser's zoom settings, or on mobile devices go into the iScored options page and reduce the "mobile scaling factor".

    zoomOut (resized).jpg

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    4) Make each gameroom a separate page and increase the max number of pages allowed. set = 50

    You are free to set up as many game rooms as you like. Each one costs $19.95, though.

    (if it helps, you can use the same email address for multiple user accounts)

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    5) Allow Admin to delete scores for a single game without deleting setup.

    You can delete scores individually by entering "0" for them, but right now you can't delete ALL scores for a game with a single click. This is also on the list of future enhancements -- it would definitely be handy. It'll come eventually.

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    6) Filters - allow user to filter scores showing a single player’s top score on all games.

    This is a neat idea that is -- again -- on the list of future enhancements already. I appreciate all of your suggestions, though, and every time someone repeats a feature request, that makes it more likely to be implemented sooner.

    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

    7) Store a guest password by gameroom (or by page) that can be given to guests so that they can log into your gameroom and enter their scores. All guests use same password which Admin can change. Password to be assigned by gameroom to ensure scores are entered under correct collection.

    I am avoiding making users do anything other than walk up, click a game, and enter a score. I don't think anyone would bother using it if they had to log in or enter a password just to participate.

    I've put a lot of effort into trying to make the main game room page as accessible / inviting / intuitive as possible. Yes, in theory, someone could mess up your scores on purpose, but that would be a tremendously jerkass move. No app (or pinball machine for that matter) is 100% jerkass-proof ... if you do encounter this problem, I'd suggest not inviting jerkasses to your game room.

    Setting up game rooms at work and will start drinking and entering scores once I get home.

    Purchased, I think this will work well for an upcoming Halloween Pinball party!

    #230 72 days ago

    Nice app @pezpunk. Let me know if you prefer feedback somewhere else.

    Android (phone), Chrome Browser. With Idle Scrolling enabled swiping does not exit idle. Kind of fights you and just stutters back and forth. Tapping exits idle scrolling but also goes straight into entering a score for the game you touched. It would be nice if the first tap or swipe exited the idle scrolling state only. Then you could scroll around if the game you are entering a score for is not currently on the screen. Now you either wait for it to scroll by, or tap the screen, exit whatever you hit, then scroll to your game.

    Anyway, I like it and appreciate that you are updating it frequently!

    #231 72 days ago
    Quoted from pezpunk:

    yes!

    yep, that'll work fine. Although you'll have to manually refresh the screen to see new scores.

    Or wrap it in a local iframe html with an auto refresh JavaScript.

    Yeah, this is true on several devices. It's on the bug list. I hope I can get to it soon. Thanks for the report, and of course thanks for purchasing the app!!

    agreed.

    speaking of which ... here's a teaser image:

    community (resized).png

    I hope you guys aren't tired of me promising this feature. I just thought it's been a few weeks, so I should prove I'm actually working on it. Just a few more days, I think!

    #233 68 days ago

    I got my new screen in and started messing around with this. My older screen was a little smaller and intended to mount flush. I used door molding to trim out the outside. I'll need to relocate the volume switch (I use this touchscreen for a jukebox) and the power button. Hopefully I can get away with the same trim idea. This monitor is not intended for flush mount but I'm trying it anyway.

    Right now my biggest request would be high scores of the day view. If you could have the clock go from say 6AM instead of 12 that would prevent parties going beyond midnight from being messed up. This could make tournaments work. A reset high score of the day function would be cool too.

    It would be great to see a pin golf mode as well.

    Last request that is likely a stretch, any thoughts of making this work alongside Pindigo?

    looks pretty cool!

    Once i get Community Styles done (and a couple other highly requested items that are in progress) i'll have a feature request battle royal where you guys can vote on which features you most want to see next.

    Is your iscored email working? I had a friend say he had sent you email with no response.

    it's working. i got back to him. i've been smothered by work and a catastrophic hard drive crash the last 2 days.

    and oh yeah the whole family has strep throat too. good times!

    #237 59 days ago

    This is great. I bought in. Would love the ability to be able to view other user's high scores for a said machine. This would be an awesome way for live stream communities to "battle it out" in asynchronous play. Most importantly, If you could ask to only present 1 game's scores that appear on someone else's iscored community.

    Just a thought as It would be neat to call up another user's high scores and set them as personal goals to beat.

    #238 58 days ago

    It would be cool to be able to add remote "friends" to be able compete against. Have the option to be able to select between: local only, friends, or everyone.

    Quoted from lpeters82:

    These are interesting ideas and I'll add them to the upcoming Feature Poll Battle Royal!

    I know I promised Community Styles in "a few days" almost a week ago. Unfortunately, I had a minor tragedy strike. I had a hard drive crash that wiped out a lot of the progress I'd made on that feature.

    The codebase is in version control, so it is safe. and obviously the website and database are backed up nightly. but my local dev machine had not been backed up for a while. About 20 hours of dev on the new feature were lost. I'm having the data recovered, but it will take a few days. I apologize for the delay, folks.

    #240 58 days ago

    Finally purchased. I have apparently missed quite a few posts in here but I can't see that a drop box was ever made? I see the new Community Styles function being made, but is there a drop box in the meantime?

    [One of the Pindigo developers here. (@cheezywhiz is the other)]

    Congrats on the release! We're wrapping up a new release ourselves and have a laundry list of new features to consider for the near future, but I think Pindigo integration could open up some pretty neat avenues. Feel free to PM us when you have room on your plate and find yourself interested. Cheers!

    #244 57 days ago

    Very nice expect that the scores have to be brought by hand in the software.
    You have to wait until the machine scores the points, so the screen or pc has to be right next to the games.
    If this would work with OCR and a iPhone it would be perfect.

    Same is for every tournament software ... typing by hand is oldschool

    #245 57 days ago

    I would love to be able to have multiple "game rooms". I was thinking that I would like to create a scoredboard for launch party tournaments to help track scores on machines, and be something I can either present on screen, or share with a public URL. Also providing permissions for others to submit their scores would be awesome, as a way to do contests, or community challenges.

    My suggestion for contests, tournaments, and challenges is to create a new column for that event, and move it to the far left (using the game order tab).

    Anyone can submit scores through a screen that's logged in, but it's not intended to be a phone app.

    #247 51 days ago

    I'll throw in another vote for "lower is best" option for scores (reverse sort option). I've seen Track and Field 100m suggested by others and I have a dart board where the lower number of darts used to reach a given target score is best.

    Although on the subject of Track and Field, I guess this will also require decimal scores?

    Okay, i'll put those suggestions on the list! Every time someone re-requests something already on the list, i do note that.

    By the way, I am still waiting to get my data back. Once I do, it should only be a day or two to get the community styles feature finished.

    In the meantime, to tide you over, i'll reveal another Easter Egg:

    If you change an existing score to zero, it deletes that score. But have you tried entering a brand new score of zero? (turn your sound on)

    #249 50 days ago

    Has anyone attempted this on a Smart TV web browser application?

    #250 50 days ago
    Quoted from futurepinhead:

    Has anyone attempted this on a Smart TV web browser application?

    Yes on an 82” Samsung MU8000. Works fine except for scrolling feature. Only goes once to the side.
