This is the opening screen of W1VE's score posting GUI.
Enter the data needed. This information is stored when you exit the program.
This is how KK1L has his Realtime scoring set up.
W1VE's GetScore uploader is running on a remote machine on the network. The script included in the uploader copies the needed files from the TRLog computer (LOG.DAT and LOGCFG.DAT) to the remote computer. The script runs RTScore.EXE which will parse LOG.DAT and create an ASCII score summary file. The script reads this file, converts it to the correct XML format and uploads it to the GetScores.ORG server.
This is the script editing interface Gerry has put together. It really
works well. There are a few lines that you need to edit in here to get
this to work in your system. I have included two examples.
The one I use copies the log file from the TRLog computer (from a shared windows drive/folder) and runs all the parsing on the GetScores computer (I refer to this as the "server side"). I call this script "TRLogGenericServerSide"
The one I do not use is provided as an alternate example. It runs the parser on the TRLog computer and then copies the summary file to the GetScores computer. I call this script TRLogGenericClientSide.
Gerry provides an automatic web link to the GetScores.ORG Realtime Scores
page. You can post to this page even outside of a contest. The program
knows when contests are active and will post scores as test scores outside
of contest times.
This is very handy. You can choose to run a different browser if you like.

This is how you might setup Realtime scoring to work with a DOS only computer!
Run TRLog on a Windows machine connected to the DOS machine with a TRLog serial connection. W1VE's GetScore uploader is runs on the windows machine and generates its own LOG.DAT. The script included in the uploader uses the local copies of LOG.DAT and LOGCFG.DAT and runs RTScore.EXE which will parse LOG.DAT and create an ASCII score summary file. The script reads this file, converts it to the correct XML format and uploads it to the GetScores.ORG server.
