I'd like to know that too but mostly as a language concern. We are based in Quebec so having a scoring program that can handle English and French would be handy.

This was an Alycat disaster. Starts at the bottom of the page.

I wasn't there so I can't say for certain. But based off of what I read on that thread it sounds like the organizers had no idea what they were doing and tried to setup a complex piece of software at the last minute. To me it sounds more like an organizers disaster then an Alycat disaster. If they had tried using any of the more modern software without first being familiar with it the same thing would have happened. Today's lap counting software is very complex and can do a lot of things. But you've got to take the time to learn it first or it will blow up on you.

Have used Autoscore for a long time. It is avery solid all the way around program. Allycat, I have tried it, and cannot get used to the navigation.
RC Scoring Pro, very very solid, no crashes the times I have used it. Good programs. JLAP, can't comment since I have not used it. I personally like Autoscore mainly because it suited our needs at the club event, which we have handled 200+ entries on a regular basis.

Do any of the above have a PRACTICE MODE? I recall attending race that ran the AMB in practice mode and the PT would auto count as soon as you started doing laps. IF i remember correctly once the PT was assigned your name in the program anytime you showed up for practice your name woudl pop up as you started counting laps..

I'm interested if Allycat can do time attck too. If I own my own transponder, can it be linked to my name on the db, so It will automatically tell me what my lap times are even if it's not in race mode?

Alycat does have a practice mode and a driver database. I haven't used practice mode at my race just yet so I do not know how it works.

in any system for it to call off a name, it has to be associated with the PT. RSCP does this in practice mode if you set it to. I think its default. I have turned off the name part so it will call all those oval guys at our place and keep up lol. Jlap also does practice as well. i usually try to have practice mode running at some point during the run up to racing so people can get an idea where they are at and where they need to be.

Well after finding out what happened in this case...If I were Ed I wouldn't be able to reccomend it either. But as for myself I have had a very good experience with the software. I don't know...maybe it is because i work on computers for a living so I have a better understanding of how it works.

I've been using RCSP for nearly 3 years now and I wouldn't consider anything else. Tech support is nothing more than a call away, and worth just as much as the software. I've used B&B in the past and back when I used it there was no tech support. Doug (RCSP) has never failed me. If you want rock solid timing software this is it. Even when your hardware fails you the data isn't lost. The software has many many features and yes it can be complicated if you don't understand the advanced features but if you learn the basic it's very easy and very logical. I was able to get my install executible on a Wednesday night, play with it for a couple of hours and then run my first club race that following saturday with very little dificulty and no delays. I've done 3 ROAR national championships with the software in the last 18 months without any software related scoring issues. Last of all RCSP is the official timing and scoring software for all ROAR RMT National Championships and the IIC.

I've never seen ALYCAT

HATE J-LAP

Never used, but watch RCSCORING PRO used a lot and LOVE it's features

OWN and USE AUTOSCORE for WINDOWS

If I was spending MY money all over again - I'd be using RCSCORING PRO

The AUTOSCORE version I use is the Pro20 version and it works very well, but does have some unworked out bugs...that can drive you nuts if you forget about them.

It doesn't list a USB AMB which I believe is the current version...at least ours is USB and would not work with the software when I tried it.
