Hi guys,
I can't find the acfmast.trn file for the September ratings. After downloading from the "ACF master list zipped" link on the auschess, ratings page I only get the sepmst08.txt file (in zipped form).
I can import the data from the sepmst08.txt file into Swiss Perfect after changing the import set-up, however it's rather messy.
Any suggestions? Am I doing something silly?

Hi Dougy, I'm sure they'll be along shortly ... last time I asked about SP TRN files:
www.chesschat.org/showthread.php?t=7257&page=4

it turned out that they sometimes take a little longer to materialise.

Ta, I did do a search to see if this was asked before, but your post didn't come up.

No worries then, I can make do with the sepmst08.txt file for now.

PM me your email address and I'll end you the September acfmasrt.trn file some time tonight.

Thanks Bill, I PM'd you. Although I don't need it for any tournament that need to be submitted, so it's not a big deal - just to update some results the website.

And at www.caq.org.au/htm/ratings.htm
And also at

http://www.ianandjan.com/ian/ratings/

Both of those links also have instructions on how to use it.

On my version I have copied the rapid ratings to the column LOC_RTG2 as I can't see them anywhere else, which won't worry those States that don't bother rating rapids.

Those running rapid events should use the provided SP rapid master file acfrapid.trn
That way when you import a player, if they have a rapid rating it will use it, otherwise it will use their normal rating.

I think there is greater efficiency having one file rather than two when they are being downloaded and copied all over the place and have identical content bar one field. The benefit of having unrated rapid players populated with normal ratings is a mixed blessing as the two scales are not calibrated. In any case it's largely irrelevant as among the target audience, namely the ACT, there are very few players who have a normal but not a rapid rating, except those who don't play rapids at all. It's far more likely to be the other way around as the rapid (active players) list is about twice as long as the normal list.
