    FIDE October ratings question.

    With the Hosworth tournaments starting on the 1st of October will the updated FIDE ratings be available to download on the morning of the 1st? Or will I have to use September ratings for the tournament?

    I don't really know whether you could expect the new FIDE rating lists to be available for download by a specific time on the 1st of October.

    I guess that organisers should just use the latest rating files that are available. The tournament begins on 1st October, so it will be rated using the October FIDE ratings. As far as the ratings are concerned, it doesn't matter if the initial ranking of the players is done using the September ratings.

    I generally set up the FIDE standard rating file in Vega, alongside the acfmast.veg file, and keep both up to date. I import players from the ACF list as they enter, and use "Update" to add in their current FIDE ratings. If a new FIDE rating file comes out prior to the tournament, then I just replace the old FIDE file with the new FIDE file, and use "Update" once again to update the old FIDE ratings to the new FIDE ratings.

    Thank you for the answer.

    The process you describe is exactly what I was planning to do.
