Thanks, guys.
Lefty,

RDSS converts their files to Synergism 2 files and the pars are up to date.
and is a lot cheaper.
or
Speed Plus will also convert drf files to Synergism 2 using raw data.
The Speed Plus pars are outdated.

Tip......Find the "Sidewater Method" on the Paceandcap board.

Lefty,

Here's a sample of today's first race at SA using SpeedPlus
and Synergism 2 with unadjusted pars.

Partsnut, he hdw files in syn6 for unlimited is cheaper than Trackmaster downloads.
However, I'm finding a lot of incomplete data from the HDW download.
Are you talking about he old George Greens Speedplus? I had it but couldn't get it to work on my 8.1 Win computer. pars are outdated isn't that going to lead to bad selections?
Looking forward o hearing more about it. I don't think I have the Speedplus disk any longer as I recently moved into a smaller Apt and left a lot of stuff behind.

My brother in law still uses SPPL, I've installed virtual xp & win98 on his computer-- they're open source / totally free. Ask George to email you SP, it's a small executable. He says you can use Dave Schwartz yearly pars to keep up to date.
If you want to go this route, I can post instructions or links how to install everything.
I'll just be around too infrequently to answer right away the rest of the year.

PS what is missing from HDW files? Thanks.

Where can I contact G Green?
What's missing from HDW files is a lot of horses are missing the last race run.
Bob Purdy has issued me a full refund. He's a quality guy.

1. Where can I contact G Green?
Taken from his website:
George Green
plugh@crowncity.com
(619) 435-3633
It hasn't changed in over 30 years. Just in case, here's the website contact form for other software he's still selling:
http://www.crowncity.com/speedplus/contactus.htm
PS some browsers balk at no https, just use a different one if can't access.

2. What's missing from HDW files is a lot of horses are missing the last race run.
This is worth a thread of its own, I wonder if their other progs are suffering from this.

3. Bob Purdy has issued me a full refund. He's a quality guy.
Funny tale from years ago.
I'd been a customer for a couple of years. One day, out of the blue I couldn't access data at HDW. Synergism has a messaging from the developer area-- I checked that and my email-- nothing. I called. "You're up to date, nothing wrong with your card on file-- but Bob has blocked you. You'll need to contact him." I thought to myself--dang, he has a lot of power(and access) over a business he does not own.
Ring. Ring. "You are sharing files with a guy named Taylor Caldwell!"
Then I realized what was going on.
"Bob, I've been going to Hot Springs for a few days at a time-- I can only access from a laptop". (I had made my favorite writer my windows logon username)
Taylor is female btw...It's better for privacy and security in public, on the laptop."
I wondered to myself what else he could see tunneling in through Synergism.

Bill, can't find the Sidewater article you referred to.
Also I can't find George Green or Speed Plus by searching on Google. Need some help...
