TROUBLE SHOOTING
Host Monitor does not switch on:
Check that the Power On light on the front panel lights up.
If not, check the power cable or try another appliance in the same power point.
If the power light is on, then switch computer off, wait 5 seconds and switch back on. Watch to see if the
Hard Disk or Floppy Disk is accessed by observing the disk light flashing. If not, then switch computer off
and try several times again in ten to fifteen minutes.
Backup Monitor is blank:
Check if the Power On light on the front of the monitor is on. If not, check the power cable and power
switch. If power is on, but screen is blank then check that the Video signal cable is plugged in correctly.
Turn the brightness control full up. If unsuccessful try another monitor of the same type. It is possible to
operate the system without this monitor, whilst a replacement is being arranged.
Host / Control Terminal is blank except for cursor and status line:
This may simply be because the screen saver has been activated. Press a key and see if screen reappears.
Check the power cable and power point.
Try switching between the two windows by holding down the control key and pressing 2 (on numeric pad)
for window 2, then holding down the control key and pressing 1 to get back to window 1. Switch off the
terminal, then switch back on and try switching between windows 1 & 2 again. Check the serial cable
connecting Host computer and Control terminal for single computer centers or the serial cable connecting
Host computer and Backup Computer in dual computer centers. Disconnect the cable connecting the
Scoresheet Printer and Host Computer and try the above procedures again. If unsuccessful try rebooting.
After all possibilities have been exhausted, check with COMPUTER SCORE support staff.
Control Monitor ‘locks up’:
If the scoresheet printer is off-line whilst a scoresheet is attempting to print. then the Control terminal may
lock up. Check that the scoresheet printer is on-line and not out of paper. Switch printer off then back on
again.
If unsuccessful then follow procedure as outlined above.
Control or Bar/Cafe Terminal screen displays 'garbage' or
characters missing:
This could be due to a serial cable fault. If you consistently get this fault switching windows, then check the
serial cable. It could also be because the Computer Setup or WYSE terminal setup has been changed and is
not compatible.
If unsuccessful, then check with COMPUTER SCORE support staff.
COMPUTER SCORE OVERVIEW
A-8
Scoresheets not printing:
Check that the printer is on-line and not out of paper. Switch printer off and then on again after waiting 5
seconds.
Check the scoresheet printer number is correct in the Printer Setup Screen. If the printer setup is correct,
then there must be a problem with the printer itself.
Two methods of cabling can be used for the score sheet printer. Either a parallel cable connecting
the printer to the Host Computer at the Control Counter in Dual Computer Centers, or a serial cable
connecting the printer to the Host Computer in the office at Single Computer Centers. Check all Cables and
if possible swap printers to determine if there is a printer malfunction.
Scoresheets can be printed on the office printer by changing the printer number in Printer Setup to be
the same as the League Secretary (Office) Printer.
Scoresheets are missing characters or garbage printed:
Most likely fault will be the printer cable. Swap the parallel cable with another to determine that this is the
fault. Or take the printer to where a test print can be performed. Also check printer settings in the printer’s
Users Guide.
Office printer not printing correctly:
Switch printer off, wait 5 seconds and switch back on.
May be printer cable. If in a Single Computer installation, swap the parallel cable with scoresheet printer, or
swap printers themselves to determine fault.
Scoring Modules on the lanes not functioning:
See troubleshooting guide in the Lane Control Manual.
Arrow or numeric function keys not functioning:
This is caused by the operating system, and is out of Computer Score’s control. Should you reboot the host
computer during the day, then the numeric keypad may not function even though the Num Lock light is on.
Press the arrow keys and then the Numeric Lock key. This should correct the problem. At other times the
Num Light functions may be reversed. This problem is cosmetic and will rectify itself the next morning
when the system is powered up.
See also, the trouble shooting guide for keyboard in the Control Terminal users guide.
Paging of office printer is incorrect:
See Trouble Shooting Guide for League Secretarial.

The above display shows the current status of all lanes in the center and provides a range of functions the
Control Operator uses in the Computer Scoring System.
The best method of selecting the required line is by pressing the desired line number, which will
automatically display the appropriate PROMPTS. If the incorrect number is chosen, press ESCAPE and
choose again.
The screen displays a lane status chart with three columns, showing the lane numbers on the left of the
chart. The first column indicates the type of games being played on each lane, eg League, Tournament,
Open games or a name from the Waiting List. The second column indicates the number of games, the
number of frames, and the expected time of completion, (initially allowing ten minutes per game per
player). The third column (Reservation) will indicate which lanes are reserved, for either League or
Tournament. This column works independently from the previous two, and deals exclusively with the
reservation of competition lanes, as opposed to open play lanes.
Once an option is chosen (say No. 4), the cursor prompts the entry of a lane number. If this is not done
within a reasonable time, the system will default, the words user aborted will appear on the right, and the
cursor will return to the No. 1 item on the left side.
When this happens, simply repeat the procedure, by entering (4) as the choice of option and then enter the
chosen lane number.
LANE CONTROL
B-2
Note:
If the system is installed in a large center, (> 20 lanes) then the options on the left side of the
screen may be displayed at the bottom of the screen in order to allow the display of two Lane
Status Displays. If there are still more lanes than can be displayed on one screen, more lanes are
displayed by pressing the Page Up and Page Down keys.
Handy Hint: During the learning period of the CONTROL operation, it is wise to TAKE YOUR TIME,
and READ THE SCREEN BEFORE PRESSING KEYS. The COMPUTER SCORE system has been
designed to "help" you through every screen by flashing directions and prompts, and these helping signs
will not be noticed unless you look at the screen before and after each key press. Within a short time you
will have memorised all the required sequences.
Items 1, 2 and 3 deal exclusively with the reservation of competition play, and commencement of play on
these pre-reserved lanes (see the League Play section on page B6).

LANE CONTROL - WORKBOOK
Open Play
The following seven workbook exercises are for centers which do not have the integrated Point of Sale
module or where initial training is performed in the absence of the Point of Sale system.
NOTE:
If your system is setup with the integrated Point of Sale you should refer to the first seven
exercises in the Point of Sale Workbook., then continue from exercise 8.
Exercise 1 Start Open Play.
Two adults and two children to play one game each on Lane 1.
Select Option 4 in the Control Menu for Start Open Play
Press 1 then Enter (for lane 1)
Type Jones then Enter
Press 4 then Enter for one game each.
The lane status grid will indicate that on lane 1 a group named Jones will be bowling four games and give
the expected finishing time. The system will adjust the expected finishing time according to the speed of
play.
Note: If the operator has not pressed a key within 30 seconds when entering the above information then
the cursor will disappear, and the words User Aborted will flash on the screen - in this case, press Enter

Exercise 1 Reserve League Lanes.
To start the ABC sample league which requires 6 lanes.
The league lanes can be reserved at any time prior to starting time, usually about 30 minutes before play
commences. Select RESERVE LEAGUE LANES (Option 1 in CONTROL) and select lanes 1 through to
6 for league code ABC. This procedure will indicate on the Lane Status Chart that 6 lanes have been
reserved for the ABC league, also showing the position of each team number according to the schedule.
NOTE:- At this point any lanes which will not be used (Vacant Team, Absent Team etc) maybe
UNRESERVED, and the remaining team re-arranged to even up the lanes. To “unreserve” a lane, repeat
the procedure of RESERVE LEAGUE LANES, but only enter the number of the lane (or lanes) required.
DO NOT ENTER THE LEAGUE’S CODE, but simply press the Enter key. The move lanes function
can then be used to move any Reserves around to fill any gaps left.
When the league is ready for practice select START COMPETITION PLAY (Option 3 in CONTROL) and
select lanes 1 to 6 for (I)nstructomat. Now, the Lane Status chart will show the total number of games to
be played on each lane, and the expected finishing time.
When the practice session is over, select START COMPETITION PLAY again, and start lanes 1 to 6 for
(P)lay.
Exercise 2 Reserve League Lanes when Lanes in use.
As per Exercise 1, but lanes 3 and 4 are being used for Open Play.
You may reserve a league on lanes that are currently being used, but the games must be completed before
starting the league on these lanes. If the open play is not completed in time then move the open play to
the spare lanes 9 and 10.
Alternatively, you can move the reserved ABC league lanes 3 & 4 to lanes 9 & 10 by using the Move
Lanes option and selecting R for Reserve if required.
Exercise 3 Start Open Play when Lane Reserved.
One of the Reserved League Lanes is required for a single game of open play before
League commences.
(Open play expected to be completed before league practice commences).
Simply Start Open Play in the usual way.
Exercise 4 Reserving Lanes when Teams Prebowled.
We find that two of the six teams have pre-bowled tonight's match, and only four
lanes will be required at starting time.
Use Reserve Lanes to Reserve all six lanes. Unreserve those lanes not required for tonight's match.
Should those lanes not be lanes 5 & 6 then use the Move Lanes option to move the reserves of lanes 5
& 6 into the empty gap. Now Start Competition Play.
LANE CONTROL
B-7
Exercise 5 Reserving Lanes when Teams Absent.
At starting time, two of the six teams are absent, and a "forfeit" procedure applies you wish to allocate the two unopposed teams to the same pair of lanes, but still play
their match against the forfeiting teams.
In this instance, you would ABANDON both lanes which have the "forfeit", and then move and allocate
the two remaining lanes to the same pair, through option 6 in CONTROL. If you know that the teams
will be away before play commences, use the procedure in Exercise 4 to move the reserve lanes prior to
play.
Exercise 6 Recover Lanes.
At the end of the Series the lanes automatically display TV or messages after 2
minutes.
If the team were still wishing to view the Analysis then simply RECOVER the lane.
Exercise 7 Lanes Out of Order.
Prior to commencement of play, one of the League Lanes is shut down for repairs by
the technician, and the pair of lanes concerned need to be moved to another pair.
In this instance, simply move the lanes individually to another pair, using option 6 in CONTROL.
Exercise 8 Lane(s) being worked on by Mechanic.
The Mechanic wants to work on lanes 3 & 4
To indicate lanes not available, use option 1 (Reserve League Lanes) in Control, enter the required Lanes
then type OFF as the league code. The word OFF will appear in highlighted text to indicate that these
lanes are unavailable. To unreserve, see Exercise 2.

Tournament Play
This method is ideal for setting up a group of lanes that are all starting up at once, as in the case of League
and School Play, which will allow play to be completed within the time limitations. Using this method
also allows the school teams to bowl their game on the same lane without cross-play.
Exercise 1 School Play.

singles formant.)
Select option 3 to start competition play.
Press 1
then Enter for first lane.
Press 12 then Enter for last lane.
Press 1
then Enter for Instruct-o-mat practice (no pinsensing).
The status grid will indicate that all 12 lanes have 6 players bowling 1 game and display the expected
finishing time. When ready to play, repeat the process through option 3 and this time choose 0 for one
lane only (if the students do not use cross-lane play).
Two lanes will have only 5 players (70 players total) and once all names have been entered, the score grid
will be reduced to only five players on two lanes.
NOTE:- In Tournament Play mode, only the names of the players actually bowling must be entered –
Blind Scores and Vacancy Scores will not be recognised. A programmed Tournament will be set up
through the league program, allowing all facilities and features provided by the League Secretarial menu.

Lanes reserved for league should be the same number as for the scheduled teams. The lanes need not be
consecutive, that is, lanes undergoing maintenance can be skipped. You may wish to unreserve lanes that
relate to forfeited or pre bowled teams. You can also use Move Lanes to move the reservations around
to ensure leagues play on consecutive lanes.
To unreserve the lane so that they can be used for open play repeat the same process but leave LEAGUE
___ Blank and the reservation will be removed from the screen.
The lanes that are reserved must be unreserved at any desired time – this will not affect the lane activity.
Reserved lanes may also be overwritten with the code of a league to follow.
This column can also be used to tell the waiting list system that certain lanes are unavailable or switched
off for maintenance. By entering OFF as the League code, those lanes reserved as OFF cannot be used

Abandon Game On Lane

(Y) to save or print scores
This item allows the removal of a score-grid from any lane (either Open, League or Tournament mode),
and will also remove all information about the lane status from the first and second columns of the Lane
Status Chart.
The reasons for "abandoning" a score grid from a lane may be varied, but some of the more common
reasons are:
(a)
Bowlers may neglect to press CLEAR at the end of play. This non-action will leave their lane
with an unnecessary score grid, preventing the display of TV/Video, Scrolling Messages, or
another score grid.
(b)
For whatever reason (injury, emergency, etc) the bowlers leave their lane with incomplete games,
and do not plan to return. This situation will also "hold up" that lane for any other function.
(c)
In the case of League lanes not being required (vacancies, forfeits, pre-bowled matches, etc). One
or more lanes maybe abandoned, and leave the screens free for any other function.
Example: To end a Game on the Lanes from the Control with the option of saving the score (will print
the score sheet if required).
Lane 1 to Lane 10 Save Y
(This will abandon lanes 1 to 10 and save scores for printing).
Lane 21 to Lane __ Save N
(This will abandon Lane 21 only, without printing scores).
LANE CONTROL
B-14
Note: It is possible to recover the lane now or later, regardless of whether (Y)es or (N)o is specified in the
Save field. This feature is also capable of recovering any lane under any format, for up to 7 days ago.
Handy Hint:
In the event of abandoning an incomplete game, it may be wise to print a scoresheet showing all frames
bowled to date, so that, in the event that the game needs to be resumed, all frames bowled will have been
recorded.
Do not make the mistake of using this sub-menu for moving a score grid from one lane screen to another this function is handled by the next sub-menu.
Move To Another Lane
Lane __
Lane to move from
To Lane __
Lane to move to
Move Lanes will transfer a score Grid from one lane to another, so that Bowlers can be moved to another
lane without losing their scores.
The most common reasons for moving a lane are:
(a)
(b)
(c)
A pinspotter malfunctions, and the game needs to be completed on another lane.
A open game is commenced on a lane reserved for league play, and the bowlers will not
complete their games in time for league to start.
To move Reserved lane.
This option can also be used in conjunction with Reserve League Lanes to move the reserved lanes around
prior to commencing competition play. This is useful where teams are forfeited or pre bowled.
If the Starting Lane has Games playing and a reservation, and the Destination lane has no Games playing
and no Reservation, then you will be asked if it is to be the Games or the Reservation that is to be moved.
Other options with Moving Lanes are:[P]air of Lanes - ODD lane to ODD lane number will move a Pair of Lanes.
[S]wap Lanes - A lane maybe exchanged with any other lane that is in play.
[O]dd & Even - ODD lane to EVEN lane number will move a Pair of Lanes and change

This screen determines which printers the Computer Score System will use, where to look for Cash
Drawers and POS receipt printers and also defines which message will be printed out on the scoresheets
and which message will be displayed to the bowlers at the End of the Series.
Computer Score uses the Windows 95/98 printer sharing system to enable different Computers running
Computer Score to print reports etc on common printers. In order to do this, the printers on each
computer need to be shared within Windows. See System Installation Guide in the Computer Score
Overview for more information on how to add printers into Windows 95/98 or see your Windows
documentation.
Assuming that all printers are setup and shared correctly under Windows 95, then select [A]dvanced to
assign each printer in Windows a Computer Score number.
Scoresheet.
This line will direct the printing of a score to either the control printer or the office printer for any of the 3
bowling modes. The margin represents how far down the page (in lines) before the start of the scoring
grid, and must also be altered accordingly (14 for printed paper, 0 for full sheet plain paper, or P for half
sheet perforated plain paper). Margin settings for some commonly used Scoresheet Printers are shown on
the screen.
See below for more details on the Computer Score Printer Numbers which can be altered via [A]dvanced
to include any printer on the Windows 95/98 network (if used as the Host Operating System) or Multi
User DOS system.
Note:-Do not alter any numbers for secretarial, POS, Cafe Printers from original setup, as this will affect
the operation of the lane Control Menu.
LANE CONTROL
B-23
POS Console
This item refers to which window on the computer, runs the Control Lanes program. There is a master
and slave window, however the operation of these two windows is identical and should be considered the
same. However the usual setting is for Master to be the most commonly used Control Lanes window.
Enter the console number of the Master and Slave Control Terminals.
Console numbers for a single computer installations:
1 = 1st Window of main computer
5 = 1st Window of WYSE Terminal at control counter
7 = 1st Window of optional 2nd WYSE Terminal
Console numbers for Dual Computer installations:
1 = 1st Window of Control Counter Computer
5 = 1st Window of Office Computer
7 = 1st Window of optional WYSE Terminal
The Usual settings are Master = 5, Slave = 1 for Single Computer Centres and Master = 7, Slave = 1 on
Dual Computer installations.
Printer
This refers to the Point of Sale Printer, or where receipts will be printed out. The usual setting is 5, but
the setting can be altered to the League Secretary Printer if no Receipt Printer is installed. Receipts, if
desired, will be then printed at the League Secretary Printer. Printer numbers for all printer ports are as
follows:
0 = LPT 1 being the first Parallel Port
1 = LPT 2 being the second Parallel Port (If fitted)
2 = LPT 3 being the third Parallel Port (If fitted)
3 = COM 1 being the 1st Serial Port
4 = COM 2 being the 1st Port of the 4 Port Serial Card
5 = COM 3 being the 2nd Port of the 4 Port Serial Card
6 = COM 4 being the 3rd Port of the 4 Port Serial Card
7 = COM 5 being the 4th Port of the 4 Port Serial Card
If an 8 Port Serial Card is fitted, port numbers continue from 8 for the 5th Port, and so on.
Drawer
This refers to the Cash Drawer to be used for the different programs. Master & Slave will often be the
same unless a separate Cash Drawer is used for each window. Eg. Two Control Terminals set far apart
from each other with their own Cash Drawer.
The optional Cafe Terminal will often use a separate Drawer and so the Printer Number & Drawer will
vary. There are several different types of Cash Drawer which all use different communications methods.
However the most common settings for each type are as follows:
1st
for Drawers which operate from the Citizen POS printer.
3
for Drawers with their own serial communications board.
680 for Drawers which use the System Port Address.
See your Computer Score Support Staff for more information.
LANE CONTROL
B-24
LED
Computer Score also supports the Citizen C2201-PD POS Customer display. This is a serial “pass
through” device, which means that it has the ability to share a serial line with a printer. The most
common configuration is for the POS Display to share the POS Receipt Printer cable with the Citizen
IDP-3541RF.
Enter the Printer number that the POS Display will use, in the LED field of the Printer Setup. (This will
usually be the same printer number as the PRN# field)
Print
This refers to the receipt printer. Options are:
N = Don’t Print any receipts
Y = Print all receipts to selected printer
S = Selectable, Print only receipts when directed during the transaction
Model
This refers to the type of receipt ticket printer
C = Citizen printer
P = Plain Paper League Secretary printer
Printer Scoresheet Message Number
Up to 9 scoresheet messages are available for printing on the scoresheet. These messages can be
customised and varied on a day to day basis.
Press M to change the message options and then select the message to be altered. Each message can be
three lines long with up to 75 characters per line.
Scoresheets for All Open Play
This setup field stops a scoresheet from being printed for every social play lane that is ended.
Enter a Y to print a scoresheet for all open play games
Enter a N to only print a scoresheet if requested from the Reprint Scoresheet option in the Control Lanes
software.

Although any printer number could be assigned to any printer, generally the printer numbers used follow
the numbering structure below. This number structure represents the printer numbers that could be used
to drive Com and LPT ports from a single, Stand Alone, host computer. (Ie. If COMSCORE was the only
computer with no others connected.) If this were the case, then the [A]dvanced Printer Setup would not
need to be used and a LPT2 Scoresheet Printer, for example, would merely have a printer number of 1 in
the normal Printer Setup. Advanced mapping are only necessary if Windows 95/98 networking is used.
0 = LPT 1 being the first Parallel Port
1 = LPT 2 being the second Parallel Port (If fitted)
2 = LPT 3 being the third Parallel Port (If fitted)
3 = COM 1 being the 1st Serial Port
4 = COM 2 being the 2nd Serial Port
Using the above example, there is an additional Printer present (in this case a Hewlett Packard 720C
Inkjet printer) which is connected to the LPT1 port of the OFFICE computer with a shared network name
of HP720C. It uses A4 size (70 lines, the default is Letter size, 66 lines) paper and uses the HP printer
driver. (All HP Inkjets are generic HP compatible while most other Inkjets are IBM Graphics
compatible.)
This printer is interesting because it is to be only used from the OFFICE computer. Because both
\\COMSCORE\LEAGUE and \\OFFICE\HP720C are both set as printer 0, they are in conflict. However,
\\OFFICE\HP720C has OFFICE in the Computer column and 2 in the Console column. This means that
\\OFFICE\HP720C will only be used as the League Secretarial (Printer 0) printer from the 2nd Console of
the OFFICE computer. All other computers will use \\COMSCORE\LEAGUE as the League Secretarial
Printer.

The Wait Sign is used to stop teams from bowling at the wrong time in an anchor man situation on Cross
Lane Play. When a team has to wait for its opponents to finish bowling on a lane before they can
continue, the Wait Sign displays a symbol to stop a team from bowling before the other team is finished
with that lane. Options for the Wait Sign include:
None
Hand

The Arrow Style determines what type a directional arrow is displayed to tell the player which lane to
bowl on. Arrow Style options include:
1 = Small Blinking Arrow. Displays inconspicuous flashing arrow above the players
name
2 = Small Arrow plus Player Name. As above but with the current players name at the

LANE CONTROL - TROUBLE SHOOTING
On occasions the lane scoring consoles may 'lock-up'. This may happen for any number of reasons. If it
occurs, it is vital that as much information as possible is provided to Computer Score Support Staff so as to
rectify the fault.
A Lane Monitor or a Pair of Monitors “Lock Up.”
Step 1:
Is both Automatic scoring and keyboard frozen. If only scoring is not working, then check that
the lanes are in Play mode. See Automatic Scoring Manual for more information.
Step 2:
Recover the lanes from the Recovery menu. Please note if the screen reappears on the overhead
monitors, and if the keyboard now operates on the scoring console.
Step 3:
Switch off the overhead monitors at the switch on the DVS Box within the Overhead Display
Unit. Wait 6 seconds and turn power on, check that the Scoring Console “Beeps” 3 times – this
indicates the Scoring Console Communication is Okay.
Step 4:
Check that the Lock Keyboard option is not selected in [S]etup from Control Lanes. This
function disables the Help menu on the Lanes when the lanes are in Open play mode and can
give the appearance of the Keyboard not working.
Step 5:
Move games to any spare lanes.
All Lanes “Lock Up.”
We need to determine if the Network is not communicating, the Control Terminal has frozen, or the
Computer itself has a fault.
Step 1: Can you recover any lanes? Note if the control screen allows you to enter this option.
Step 2: Can you abandon a lane?
Does the entry disappear on the Control Screen?
Does the grid disappear on the Overhead Monitor?
Step 3: If the lane is abandoned from the Control Monitor:Can it be recovered?
Does the entry reappear on the Control Monitor?
Does the grid reappear on the Overhead Monitor?
LANE CONTROL
B-33
Step 4: Make sure that the Overhead Display Units are
not in Stand Alone Mode. Ie: That there is no
Network disconnected icon in the Top left corner
of the screens. See the Lane Hardware Manual
for more information.
Practice this procedure so that you are familiar with it, in case a problem occurs.
Control Terminal Numeric Pad Keys Not Working Correctly
Make sure that the Num Lock key is on. The purpose of this key is to toggle between the alternate uses of
the Numeric Keypad. Ie. 3 on the Num Pad functions as either the number 3 or as a Page Down key. As all
alternate functions of the Numeric Keypad can be found elsewhere on the keyboard, it is recommended that
the Num Lock remains permanently on.
Printed Scoresheet is not Satisfactory
Reprint the scoresheet from the recovery menu. Ensure that the printer font has not been changed.
Check to make sure that the right Margin is set for the scoresheet printer in the Printer Setup.
Make sure that the Printer number is correct so that the scoresheets are sent to the correct printer.
“Control may already be running on this Computer” Message
This may occur because of one of the following reasons:
1)
Control Lanes was previously terminated incorrectly, such as by Closing the program directly using
the Windows Close Command.
2)
Control Lanes or Console 1 has been started multiple times on the one computer.
In either case, it is a good idea to answer No to the question and then check the Windows Task Bar.
Terminate all menus as you would at the end of the day and re-start “Computer Score 1” from the Start
Menu in Windows. Select Control Lanes. If the error message reappears, it is safe to answer Yes to the
question and then continue.

Rental information. It also provides screened or printed reports, indicating:
1.

3.
All rentals that are due for renewal on any chosen date
The setting up section of the program allows for multiple “series” or “banks” of lockers, by the entry of an
alphabetical prefix to each number (e. g. series “A” to “Z”).
With a numerical range of four digits for each alphabetical series, the total capacity of the Locker Rental
is just a little short of 260,000 lockers, but more importantly, the system allows the flexibility of
identifying a group of lockers, for example:
[S]ingle or [D]ouble lockers, [B]lue, [G]reen or [R]ed lockers, [M]etal or [W]ooden lockers, etc.
In planning the Setting Up of your Locker Rental system, the following should be prepared:

Adding Lockers
The Locker Rental System will track the date of rental Start and Expiry, so that it will be possible to rent
lockers for Twelve, Six, Three or One Month, or from Any Date to Any Date.
Following the above preparation, access the Locker Rental Menu through the
Master Menu option [5] Management Menu, then [6] Locker Rental sub-menu, and
option [5] Setup Lockers.

OPTIONS
This part of the LOCKER RENTAL system

Press ESC to exit without changing

Follow the prompts on the screen above until the desired numerical series of each Series is completed.
NOTE: Take care in entering letters and numbers for the setting up, as it is possible to “duplicate” a
series. If you do not have multiple series of lockers, then use one letter for all lockers. (eg. If
you have Lockers in a single series of say, 1 to 100, then use A1 to A100 to include all your
lockers.)
Once the lockers have been setup to your choice, the Locker Rental System must be activated in the Cash
Control System (Point Of Sale) in the “POS Item Setup”.
From the Master Menu, choose [5] Management Menu, then [9] POS Repair Menu, and [2] POS Item
Setup.
Find the “Locker Rental” Item Number, and select the [C]hange option. Press the “Enter” key through to
the “Unit” field, and enter [L]. Continue “Entering” until the Items screen displays “L” in the “Unit”

The fields dedicated to “Key Deposit”, “Key Number” and “Comments” are visual only, and provide you
with screen information detailing whether a Deposit was paid for the specific Locker Key, the Serial
Number of the Key (or Lock Combination) and any
other comments relating to the Locker, or to the Customer.
For example, the “Comments” line could be utilised for indicating a faulty lock, or a damaged locker, or
rental by a Staff Member, justifying a rental fee discount.
If a Key Deposit is charged, it would be displayed in the appropriate field, but must be added to the
“Amount Paid” for the Locker, for it to be included in the transaction.
For example, Locker Rental amount is $20 and Key Deposit is $5.
The “Amount Paid” figure should be $25 for the cash transaction, and the $5 should also be entered in the
“Key Deposit” field to indicate that the deposit was paid.
The Key Deposit is treated as a “Trust Account” item, which should be refunded when the Key is
returned, and at that time, a “negative” entry for $5 will be transacted
against the Locker Rental Income, to balance out the refund.

After filling in the Deposit Title, Description, Date and Total Amount Due (If it is known), the system
will ask for a Bowler’s name to assign the Deposit to. If the person making the deposit is not a current
bowler, then his/ her details will be added to the Database.
Although this will add non-league members into the Master Bowlers Database, any person who does not
belong to a league, and who does not have an outstanding deposit will be regarded as a “Past Bowler” and
can be deleted by performing a Remove Old Bowlers from the Repair Menu, Master Bowlers section of
the Main Menu.
Once the person’s details are entered, the system will ask if the above details are correct (as shown
above). Answer [Y]es.
This deposit is then added to the current deposits list for future payments and completion.
Note: It is not necessary to enter a “Total Amount Due” figure when adding a new deposit
because when the deposit is completed, the amount already paid is actually “Refunded”
first. This is necessary in cases of deposits being paid for bowling parties, for example,
where the amount of deposit is included as part of the total for the transaction. The
Total Due figure is therefore displayed for operator reference only. For more
information see Completing a Deposit below.

[P]ayment towards deposit, [R]efund deposit, [C]omplete transaction, [Q]uit ?
The left side of this screen refers to the details of the deposit including the Current Balance, Sale Price
and Payments received. The right side of the screen gives a complete history of payments made towards a
deposit. In the above example, three payments of $50.00 have been made, for a total of $150.00.
From this screen it is possible to make additional payments, refund the total payments made to date or
complete the deposit and pay any balance due.
Entering Additional Payments
In order to make additional payments towards a deposit, press [P]ayment towards deposit and the
software will then ask for the amount of the current payment. In the above example, a payment of $50.00
was made on the 24/10/99.
After entering the amount of the payment, the software will ask if you would like to print [1]Receipt,
[2]Receipts or [N]o receipt. This option gives the operator the ability to print 2 receipts, if desired, 1 for
the customer and 1 for records for the management.
Refunding a Deposit
If, for example, the Deposit is to be cancelled and a refund given for any monies paid to date, then this can
be achieved by using [R]efund Deposit.
Once Refund Deposit is selected the software asks for the amount to be refunded and will automatically
fill in with the total amount paid to date.
(In the example above, -$150.00)
If desired, it is possible to overwrite the refund amount with a different value than the total paid to date, if
the case where a partial deposit refund is required.
Note: Any refund amount must be entered as a negative figure as a refund is basically considered as a
negative payment from the customer.
POINT OF SALE
C-33
After entering the amount of the refund, the software will once again offer the choice of [1]Receipt,
[2]Receipts or [N]o receipt.
If the transaction is a refund of the total paid to date, then the deposit is considered cancelled and will no
longer appear on the list of outstanding deposits. If the transaction is not a total refund, then the deposit
will still appear on the outstanding deposits list, with an amended balance due.
Completing a Deposit
When the time comes to finish a deposit and start the activity for which the deposit was made, press
[C]omplete Transaction from the Deposit Payment screen.
The software will ask for the number of lanes required. If this field is left blank, then an Other
Transaction screen is displayed to deal with any transaction that does not involve actual bowling on the
lanes.
Otherwise, the Deposits software works in such a way that a completed deposit is transacted as a Walk-In
Reservation Waiting List transaction. The completed deposit can then be started on the lanes as per a
normal Waiting List procedures.

previously paid amounts. In the above transaction, 53 Party Games @ $5.00 each comes to $265.00.
There has already been $150.00 paid from the Deposit and so the total due from the whole transaction

From any menu, press M for the Management Menu, then press 9 for the Repair Menu. This area of the
program is security protected and a password is required. Management may limit access to this menu to
personnel with higher duties.
Point of Sale Month Dates Setup
This part of the POS system defines the ‘Start’ and ‘End’ Date for each of the 4 or 5-week months, for any
particular year. The definition of any year is from JANUARY to DECEMBER, and the definition of each
week number would depend on the DATE and the DAY on which the previous year was ended. For
example: If the PREVIOUS year's figures ended on Sunday 28th December, then the CURRENT year's
‘Week 1’ would begin on Monday 29th December.
The dates are pre-set by Computer Score and although they can be changed by management for operational
reasons, it is not recommended.

The UNIT type is used to define special attributes to the item, these being :
G
indicates that the item is a game to be bowled.
T
indicates that the game item is based on Time Bowling. Note: The price should be set so that
it is divisible by 60 minutes evenly.
I
indicates that the item is an Inventory item requiring the entry of a serial number.

*
These two report types should be used only if you enable League Accounts, that is, payment at some
time other than during or immediately after League Play.
If the item is none of the above, leave Unit blank.
The KEY column refers to the ‘Hot Keys’, or FUNCTION KEYS (F1 to F12) on your keyboard, which are
designed to accept the twelve most commonly used items on YOUR list, for faster operation. You may also
use Control, Shift and Alternate function keys giving a total of 48 hot keys. All these keys can also be used
for POS Macro’s. See Section 8 “POS Macro Setup” in the POS Reference Guide.
Note: If you use POS Macros, be sure not to assign different functions to the same key. Eg. If F1 is set as the
hotkey for Adult games in the POS Item Setup, be sure not to use it as a POS Macro.
When assigning Control, Shifted & Alt Hot Keys, the Control Keys are displayed with a ^ symbol, the
Shifted Keys are displayed with a ~ symbol and the Alt Keys have a ! symbol. Eg. ^F1, ~F1 & !F1
POINT OF SALE
C-42
respectively. When doing this, hit the keys themselves not the symbols as represented on the keyboard. For
Example: For Alt F1, hold down the Alt Key and hit the F1 Key. Do not type !F1.
The REPORT column is important as it specifies how the item will be grouped within the Weekly Takings
Reports. You must select a REPORT TYPE for every item as listed on the right side of the screen.
POINT OF SALE
C-43
Note: 11 of 13 REPORT TYPES must be used, otherwise the POS reports will be incomplete; Even
though some of them may not be used for example (V)OUCHERS - you may not use vouchers in
your operation, you must include ‘Voucher’ in your items list, and allocate ‘V’ in the Report
column. The two Report Types which do not have to be used are:[F]ees Sundry –
used to combine all income accumulated through infrequently used or discontinued
Entry Fee POS items.
[V]ouchers Sundry – used to accept combine all games and income accumulated in infrequently used or
discontinued vouchers.
IMPORTANT: Two other items which must be included in your list are: "BANKING", to be allocated
(1) in the "Report" column, and "CASH PAID OUT", to be allocated (2) in the "Report"
column. Unless these two items are included, and allocated to the correct report type,
you will have incomplete Shift Reports and Weekly/Monthly Reports.
There is a limit of 99 items allowable in your list, however it is advisable to maintain to the average number
used by other Centres, which varies between 40 and 60 items.
Hints for Smoother Operation:
Before you commence to [C]hange the items on the list to suit your operation, take time to plan the
numbering of the items, and perhaps leave one or two blank item spaces after each of the Report Types,
allowing for additional future items in a particular Report.
Take particular care in choosing the Hot Key items – even though there are 48 available and should include
the most commonly used items (in some Centres they may include squash, roller skating or other rental
income areas).
Keep a record of your items list, in the event that an incorrect change may be made and upgrade it after any
changes.
Report Types are used for sub totaling on the Weekly / Yearly POS reports.
In allocating a report type to an item, consider the following:
[B]owling Open:
All types of bowling items representing games other than league, tournament,
school or discount vouchers.
[C]afe Income:

machines or some Bar lines.
[E]ntry Fees:

Usually, income from Pro-Shop merchandise or saleable items from Control
Desk (other than Cafe).

MUST be setup also.
[3] Sales Tax: Used only in countries that impose tax on bowling games.
[4] Quickbooks:

integrate the Point Of Sale items and income with it. See: Quickbooks Export in
the Point of Sale Manual for more details.
Any number of additional items may be entered at any time, through the [N]ew facility to the Setup. Enter
Control_W to save entry of each item.
Edit Daily and/or Weekly Totals:
Through the password system (high level access) you will be able to edit the POS values - either income or
quantities, for any DAY or WEEK.
Editing of DAILY results is used where adjustments need to be made for income or quantities for a
particular days trading. Usually this would be the current week. Warning -if you edit the DAILY figures,
then you must recreate the Weekly/Monthly results through the POS Validation.
An alternative method to making adjustments to daily figures is to actually add a transaction using the
Display POS transactions option in the POS Repair Menu. Please note, for security reasons, adjustments
made to the Daily Figures does NOT alter the Shift Reports even if reprinted.
POINT OF SALE
C-45
Editing of WEEKLY figures is used where daily figures are not available. For example, last years figures or
where a Point of Sale Close has been performed. Warning - if you change a weekly total and daily figures
exist for that week, then the sum of all the daily trading figures for the week will not necessarily correspond
to the weekly total as the latter figure includes the adjustment.
Point of Sale Validation:
This option will recalculate results from each day's POS files by opening the databases, then scanning each
day's takings for the year of your choice.
This option must be used immediately after editing DAILY figures, and will also be helpful in "repairing"
any corruption to the data in the Weekly Report. It is advisable to validate the previous year, prior to
validating the current year, in order to recalculate the year to date as well as previous years comparative
figures.
Point of Sale Close Procedure:
This option will DELETE all DAY files up to any date of your choice - all WEEKLY information will be
retained, but not each DAY'S individual totals.
You may choose to delete all daily figures when they are no longer required, eg at the end of each month, or
quarter as these figures are already available on your Shift and Weekly Reports.
Important:
If you are closing right up to today’s date and use the league fees system, please run any
League Fees report prior to closing. As this will transfer the required League
transactions before they are deleted.
When this option is used, you must run the POS validation.
Warning:
As a security measure, backup your POS databases first, just in case you delete the current
daily figures by mistake.
Display Point Of Sale Transactions:
This option will display details of any transaction for today, or any other day, by choice.
Transactions may be added from this option, in which case you must RECREATE the Weekly totals through
option [5] of this menu, POS Validation.

Handy Hint:
Before assigning POS Macro keys, it is a good idea to have a printed POS item list handy
with a description of each POS item number.
Note:
Function keys can be to a single POS item in the POS item setup. These function keys have
priority over the POS macro keys. Avoid, if possible setting up conflicting POS Shortcut keys.
Note:

Quickbooks Export:
This option allows the export of the POS daily totals to your own Quickbooks Program. To activate this
function, you must setup Account Codes and Inventory Item Codes, using the Quick[B]ooks option in the

Quickbooks requires two pieces of information in order to import financial transactions. Firstly it needs
to know what Chart of Accounts account to record monies into, and secondly it needs to know what
Inventory Item is being reported into the Account.
There are two methods to give this information to Quickbooks:
Method 1
Automatic Classification of POS Items
Using this method, the POS items are automatically classified according to what Report type each POS
item is assigned to in the POS Item Setup.
Eg.)
REPORT TYPES

The Quickbooks Inventory item is also automatically entered to be the same as the description in the POS
item Setup. (POS Item descriptions must be unique in the first 13 characters)
Eg.)
POS ITEM
QUICKBOOKS INV ITEM
Adult Games
Adult Games
Basically, in order to use this method all you have to do is leave the Account Code and Inventory Items
columns completely blank and the Export program will export all POS items automatically according to
its Description and Report Type.
Note: You can change the description of the Banking POS Item to be the same as your bank account
name in Quickbooks so that the transactions go to the correct account. Eg. Change the Banking
POS item to Commonwealth and transactions will go to a bank account called Commonwealth in
Quickbooks.
It is strongly recommended that you use this method unless you are an advanced user.
It is also recommended that you do a trial export to a new, blank company before exporting to an existing
Quickbooks company in order to view the result of a Quickbooks export and gain familiarity with the
process. (Also backup existing Quickbooks company before importing IIF file)
Method 2
Manual Classification of POS Items
Using this method you can manually dictate where a POS item is reported to by filling out the Account
Code and Inventory Item columns in the Quick[B]ooks Setup yourself. By filling in these fields, data will
be exported to that specific account and inventory item no matter what changes are made to the
description of the POS item.
Eg.)
POS ITEM
Meal Deal Voucher
ACCOUNT CODE
Vouchers
INVENTORY ITEM
Vouchers:MiscVouchers
In the above example the Meal Deal Voucher could be changed to Meal Deal Voucher2 (or indeed Adult
Bowling so caution is advised) and the information will still go the Vouchers Account and MiscVouchers
which is a sub item of the Vouchers inventory item.
This method is very precise, however it is very intensive to Setup and maintain if the POS item list
changes frequently.
It is possible to use a combination of the two Methods by only filling out the Account Code and Inventory
Item for only certain POS Items (Such as frequently changing specials.) and leaving the rest to be done
automatically as per Method 1. This will stop your Inventory Item list in Quickbooks from growing too
large with items that where only relevant for a short time.
For more information, see the on-screen help for the Quickbooks export by pressing (H)elp once in the
Quick(B)ooks Setup screen.

POINT OF SALE - TROUBLE SHOOTING
Most difficulties in the Point of Sale usually relate to the Cash Drawer, Receipt Printer (if installed) and the
Control Monitor keys. Many of the problems relating to the use of function keys and the numeric lock, as
well as the Printer are already handled in the Trouble shooting section of the Overview manual.
Note: The standard installation has the Cash Drawer on the same serial line as the Receipt Printer.
Cash Drawer will not open:
1)
Check that the POS (Receipt) printer is on-line and has paper. If your Cash Drawer is operated
from the back of a Citizen POS printer, then the Drawer won’t open unless the printer is on line.
Both the power and “Sel” Lights should are lit on the printer.
2)
Cash Drawer port specified in the Printer Setup option of the Utility, Control Screen Setup menu
has been changed. See the Installation Guide in the Computer Score Overview and Setup Screens
in the Lane Control Manual for more details.
Note: Before changing any printer setup values, always make a note of the original setting.
3)
The power supply to the Receipt Printer is off or disconnected.
4)
The serial cable to the Receipt Printer is disconnected.
5)
The Cash Drawer is not functioning. (Internal electronics faulty). This would be fairly rare
considering that the electronics of the Cash Drawer merely consist of a solenoid. Try moving the
Cash Drawer cable to the second port underneath the Receipt Printer. You will have to also change
the Drawer field in the Printer Setup to 2ND from 1ST or vice versa. See your printer users guide to
determine which port is the 2nd Cash Drawer Port.
The Cash Drawer will open if the Receipt Printer is reset, or switched off and then back on. If this does
happen then the serial cable is probably OK. If it does not open then the Cash Drawer is not connected to the
printer. You may manually open the Cash Drawer using a mechanical switch located towards the rear on the
underside of the drawer.
Point of Sale Receipt Printer not working:
1)
Check that the printer is on-line and has paper.
2)
Check also that the serial cable is plugged in correctly at both ends.
3)
Check the POS Receipt Printer number as specified in the Control Setup Screen is correct AND that
the Point of Sale Receipt Printer has been set to (Y)es or (S)electable. Refer to the Installation Guide
in the Computer Score Overview for the default values.
4)
Refer to the Receipt Printer operating manual.
POINT OF SALE
C-50
Point of Sale transaction screen locks up:
This usually only occurs when the Point of Sale Receipt Printer is not on-line. For those systems without the
Receipt Printer, it may occur if the Receipt Printer has been selected as (Y)es or (S)electable. Check the
setup and/or printer.
A single function key not working:
This is most likely through Function key assignment in the Item List Setup having been changed. Check the
Item List Setup and POS Macro Key Setup. Any changes made to the setup will not be actioned until you
Quit out of the POS Item Setup and save the changes. If you perform these changes on one Computer, you
must quit out and re-load the Control Lanes program on every Computer in order for the changes to take
effect.
Scoresheet Printer not functioning:
Check scoresheet printer is on line. Also check that the Control monitor has been returned to the Control
Status screen. It cannot process scoresheets or league scores whilst a transaction screen is incomplete or if
the screen is being used for other purposes such as Bowler name entry.
Warning:
Do not leave the (O)ther transaction screen up, and enter shoe rental payments until the screen
becomes full. This procedure is not recommended for a long period of time if Open Play
lanes are in use because printing of Score Sheets is disabled until the Control Grid reappears.
It is best to complete the transaction and create a new transaction for the next shoe hire.
Providing credits on game purchased
In the case of Open Play game refunds, simply recall the lane number through (4) Start Open Play and enter
the negative number of games as required. In the case of a Waiting List reservation which has already paid,
use (3) Pay Reservation and enter the negative games, as required.
Voiding transactions:
Transactions cannot be voided if they were created in the previous shift. Many voids are unnecessary as in
most cases, errors can be edited whilst in Transaction Screen or games and payments can be edited as in the
cases explained above.
POINT OF SALE
C-51
Incorrect banking entered at the end of shift:
The Banking figure cannot be changed (auditing reasons), except on the following day through Edit Daily
Transactions. Remember to run the POS Validation option after performing this step.
Incorrect transaction entered for previous shift:
This can be corrected the following day using Edit Daily Transactions. Alternatively, an adjusting
transaction may be made in the current shift. The banking for each shift will not match the shift takings but
will be correct for the whole day.
Paid Games and Total Games do not match:
This usually occurs where there have been 'pay after' games entered that were not completed within the same
shift, or where the Pay After mode has been used for test or other purposes.
POINT OF SALE
C-52
TROUBLE SHOOTING: POS REPORTS
Weekly totals not adding up to the sum of the 7 days:
This may occur when figures have been changed using the Edit Daily/Weekly Totals menu option with the
POS maintenance. Whenever figures have been changed use the POS Validation menu option then reprint
the report.
Error message is printed on Weekly Report:
An error message such as 'Cannot merge (P)' may print on the POS reports if the Report type has not been
allocated to any Items within the Item List. Check the Report types within the Setup of the Item List.
Items missing from the Weekly Report:
Once again this may occur when the Report Type has not been specified for every item.
An incorrect Week Number appears at the top of the Weekly
Report:
This will happen if the Months Dates Setup has been changed. Normally this option is password protected
from any Center staff. Run a POS Validation for current and previous year, before calling Computer Score.
The POS Validation is very slow:
If daily data has accumulated over a long period of time without a Point of Sale Close Procedure being
performed, then the validation will take a very long time. It is suggested that the Daily files be deleted up to
say 4 weeks ago. There is no need to keep more than 3 months of daily files.
Point of Sale Backup Disk becomes full:
This may also occur when the Daily files accumulate. Proceed as in the above case.

Chapter D
WAITING LIST
GETTING STARTED
The Waiting List system is an essential part of the Point of Sale operation. For example, multiple lane
reservations best be processed via the Waiting List Add a Reservation option.
The Waiting List system has been designed to fulfil the following criteria for a busy centre:
1)
Speed up the process of commencing games by completing a transaction prior to the lanes becoming
available. Bowlers names can be entered by the operator after entering the transaction, thus saving
time on the lanes.
2)
To provide a convenient mechanism for handling multiple lane group reservations.
3)
To guide the management in the allocation of lanes, by indicating the expected time of completion.
This time automatically adjusts to the speed of the bowlers. All waiting reservations are
automatically linked to a lane with the expected commencement time displayed.
4)
Fully integrated to the Point of Sale, Lane Control and League Secretarial systems. For example, it
automatically places today's leagues into the Waiting List, and removes the reservation when the
league is commenced.
NO MANUAL OPERATION IS REQUIRED!
5)
The waiting list guides but never insists on which reservation to start next, OR on which lane!
6)
Allows the recording of advance telephone bookings for today.
7)
Replaces the centre's reservation book for today.
Hint: If your centre has 20 lanes or less, the Waiting List & Control Lanes status grid can both be displayed
simultaneously by pressing D for [D]ual display.

D-5
Exercise 8:
Open play, 1 only lane for 2 players.
Variation 1: Lanes available, pay before.
Answer:
Start Open Play and process POS transaction.
Variation 2: Lanes available, but players pay separately.
Answer:
Start Open Play and process payment from player 1 for his games. Use the option [A] for
Add to this transaction, to process payment for the second player.
Variation 3: Lanes unavailable, pay altogether now.
Answer:
Add reservation from Waiting List, completing the POS transaction screen for required
number of games. Then start reservation in usual way when lanes become available.
Variation 4: Lanes unavailable, but players pay separately.
Answer:
Add reservation from Waiting List, completing the POS transaction screen for the first player
only. Then select Pay Reservation and include the 2nd players games on the POS screen.
Exercise 9:
A Group Of 8 Bowlers Requiring 2 Lanes.
When reserving multiple lanes, you must enter the number of lanes required. You should also enter the start
lane. The computer DOES NOT attempt to reserve the lanes so that the group are playing on consecutive
lanes, except in the case where the start lane is specified.
Variation 1: Lanes available, pay altogether.
Answer:
Multiple lanes as a rule, should be handled through the Waiting List system. Select Add a
reservation and enter 2 for the number of lanes required. Complete the POS transaction
screen for the full amount. Select Start Reservation to commence the first lane for the
required number of games, and then select Start Reservation to commence the second lane
for the balance of the total number of games purchased.
Alternative:
Another method of processing this, is to Start Open Games and enter the transaction for the
entire group. Then select Start Open Games for the other lane required, but press Enter for
the POS transaction screen for a Pay after transaction. Then select Transfer Games to transfer
the required number of games from the first lane to the second lane. This is an interesting
exercise but would probably be better handled as above
Variation 2: Lanes available, but pay separately for lanes.
Answer:
If paying per lane, then the transaction can be considered as 2 normal independent open
lanes. As such they can be processed via Start Open Lanes in the normal way.
WAITING LIST
D-6
Variation 3: Lanes available, but players pay separately.
Answer:
As lanes become available, the transaction can be considered as two normal independent
open lanes as above. Start open play for player 1 on the first lane. After entering “Amount
Tendered” three new options will appear on the lower part of the screen. Choose [A] for Add
to this transaction and Repeat the process for all players on that lane. Then start open play for
player 5 on the 2nd lane. Repeat until all players on that lane are processed.
After entering “Amount Tendered” three new options will appear on the lower part of the
screen. Choose [A] for Add to this transaction and it will allow the entry for the next player.
Repeat this procedure until all players have paid and the transaction is completed in the
normal manner.
Alternative:
Note:
Add the reservation and process the first amount of money. Remember to enter 2 for the
number of lanes. Then Repeat Pay Reservation for the other parts of the transaction. Start
play as variation 1.
There is a limit of 10 transaction lines, so you may not have enough lines to add each players
individual monies. If so, process in groups.
Variation 4: Lanes unavailable, pay altogether.
Answer:
Select Add a Reservation and enter 2 for the number of lanes required. Complete the POS
transaction screen for the full amount. Then select Start Reservation to commence the first
lane when available, and then select Start Reservation to commence the second lane when it
becomes available.
Variation 5: Lanes unavailable, pay separately.
Answer:
As per variation, but start the reservation only when the lanes become available. If you are
not processing the money UNTIL the lanes are available, then the transaction is identical to
the example phone reservations described later.
Exercise 10: Phone Reservation For 1 Lane Of 2 Players.
Variation 1: Lanes available when players arrive, pay together.
Answer:
Enter Phone Reservation when phone call taken. When players arrive, use Pay Reservation to
process the monies. Then select Start Reservation.
Alternative:
A faster method, that removes one step is:- Enter Phone Reservation when booked. When
players arrive, start the reservation. The POS transaction screen will appear knowing that
monies have yet to be processed. Complete the transaction.
WAITING LIST
D-7
Variation 2: Lanes available upon arrival, pay separately.
Answer:
Enter Phone Reservation when booked. When players arrive, process the first players
transaction through Pay Reservation. After entering “Amount Tendered” and processing the
change, etc, press [A] for Add to transaction, and process the next players transaction.
Repeat this process for additional players.
Alternative:
Alternatively, as an interesting exercise:Enter Phone Reservation when booked. When players arrive, Start the Reservation, entering
the monies from the first player only. Now select Start Open Games for this lane, whereupon
you may add the games for the second player.
Variation 3: Lanes unavailable upon arrival, pay together.
Answer:
Proceed as per the first answer of variation 1, but Start the Reservation only when the lanes
become available.
Variation 4: Lanes unavailable upon arrival, pay separately.
Answer:
Proceed as per the first answer of variation 2, but Start the Reservation only when the lanes
become available.
Exercise 11: Phone Reservation For 2 Lanes Of 8 Players.
These exercises are essentially the same as for Walk-in multiple lane reservations, except that the usual Add
a Reservation is replaced by Phone Reservation and then Pay Reservation when the group arrives. The
process is identical whether lanes are available immediately or not. Just start the reservation when the lanes
become available.
Variation 1: Group arrives, pay together.
Answer:
Enter Phone Reservation for two lanes when booked. Then process monies via Pay
Reservation upon arrival. Start the reservation when lanes become available.
Note:
DO NOT skip the Pay Reservation step and hope to process the full transaction at the time of
starting the transaction. If you do so, then ALL the games will be allocated to the first lane,
and none to the second. If this happens, start the second lane as a Pay After transaction, then
transfer games from the first lane to the second lane. You will also need to delete reservation
for the second lane.
WAITING LIST
D-8
Variation 2: Group arrives, pay per lane.
Answer:
Enter Phone Reservation for two lanes when booked. When the Group arrives, process the
monies via Pay Reservation for the first lane, then the second lane. Start the Reservation
when lanes available.
Alternative:
If the lanes are immediately available, then the quicker method is to:Enter Phone Reservation for the two lanes when booked. When the group arrives, Start the
Reservation for the first lane. As monies have not been processed it will require you to enter
the transaction for the lane starting (not both). Process this, then repeat this step for the
second lane.
Variation 3: Group arrives, pay per player.
Answer:
See similar variation for Walk-in Group Reservation.
General Note:
There is no right or wrong way to process the Reservations. The Reservation system is the tool, but you are
in control. At no time does the reservation system force you to use any particular lane. It will guide you, but
you have the last say.
Exercise 12: Entering Players Names from the Waiting List
In this example, say three people wish the bowl 2 games each.
After filling out either a Phone Reservation or transacting a Walk In Reservation, you can enter the bowler
lineup straight away, from the Waiting List.
Press [N]ame Entry and you are presented with the following screen:
NAME ENTRY
Player 1
Player 2
Player 3
Player 4
Player 5
Player 6
Enter the 5 character name for each bowler
on the lane. Leave spare names blank.
Names must be in upper case using A..Z only.
The END key erases the current name
The DEL key deletes the character under the cursor
The INS key allows insertion of characters
When complete press F10 to save names
If you do not wish to continue press ESC
Fill in the first three Players with the correct names, leaving the other three positions blank and then press
F10 to save. You can also specify Automatic Bumpers, if available and enabled, for any player by pressing
the TAB key at the appropriate name.
Those names will now be present on the lanes when the Reservation is started.

Name SMITH
Lanes 1 Start Lane
(The number of games will be displayed in the POS transaction screen)
A reservation in the name of Smith for a pair of lanes.
Name SMITH
Lanes 2 Start Lane
The number of games entered will be split evenly between the two lanes. If an odd number of games, then
the higher is shown on BOTH reservations. For example, if 5 games purchased then the reservation is
split with 3 + 3 games. This does not mean a free game is given, it simply means that it is better to be
conservative in the estimation of expected playing time. When the first lane is started the balance of the
games is placed against the remaining lanes of this reservation.

WAITING LIST - TROUBLE SHOOTING
The waiting list options, such as Add Reservation are simply tools, not a complete function. In other words,
to achieve a certain function you may need to use several Waiting list options in succession.
For example, Two lane Open Phone Reservation paying together.
Step 1:
Step 2:
Step 3:
Step 4:
Phone Reservation (at time of ringing)
Pay Reservation (when arrived)
Start Reservation for Lane 1 (when lane available).
Start Reservation for Lane 2 (when lane available).
If, in the above example they are paying separately, then the sequence would change by having multiple Pay
Reservations.
If, in the above example the lanes are available when paying (and they are paying per lane), then the
sequence could leave out Step 2 altogether and money will be requested when starting the reservation.
Most of the trouble encountered in the waiting list system is due to not understanding how to put the options
together to achieve the required result.
Next league not appearing in the waiting list:
The next league is automatically entered into the waiting list two hours prior to play. This is done by
checking the Start Time and Lane defined on the league classification screen. These must be entered
correctly and in 24 hour time for this to work. Similarly, the next play date must match the current date and
can be checked within the Edit Scheduled Dates option in the Schedule menu.
Current time incorrect:
The time must be changed for daylight savings time. This can be from the [U]tility Menu, option [4] Change
System Date. See Workbook Exercises:- Setting Date and Time in the overview Manual.
Deleting the wrong reservation:
There is a facility to undelete the last deleted reservation. This can be done by entering an asterix '*' in the
reservation number field within the Delete Reservation option.

Chapter E
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
GETTING STARTED
The League Secretarial program keeps the records of each league in a separate set of computer files. These
files are created with a setup program called League Classification, which is run only once for each league at
the commencement of the season.
You will be required to enter all the information the computer needs about that league, including teams,
bowler's names, and such information as lineup, points system and handicap rules.
After the league is setup, the scores from each week's matches are automatically transferred from the lanes to
the host computer's hard disk. When all teams have completed their games, the results of that match can be
printed.
If every team had a full complement of bowlers, and they all bowled each week of the season, you would
have nothing to do but print the match results each week. Usually there will be blind scores, roving reserves,
forfeits, corrections and other variations. All of these are explained in this manual and on the screen.
Hints to the Operator:
Sometimes people think that computers must be operated by computer experts. This is not true, you will
probably have fewer problems if you have someone run the program who understands league rules and
league secretarial procedures. It will not take them long to learn how to use the program, and they will know
how to handle the different situations that will arise in league play.
For the initial setup of your leagues, choose an operator who has typing skills, speed and accuracy.
Organisation of Work:
The major problem in setting up the league program is obtaining accurate, complete and current information
from each of the league secretaries in your centre.
Leagues using the program for the first time will be especially critical of the first few reports, and you should
be careful that these are as accurate as possible. Common early errors are mistakes in name spelling and
pinfall adjustments which result in wrong handicaps.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-1
Here is a list of league information that is required from each league secretary.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Last week’s CORRECT Standing Sheet
The correct NAMES and NUMBERS of the Teams
Bowlers information: Name, Address, Telephone No., Best game and series achievements, and if
possible, date of birth (Day and Month only required)
A copy of the Constitution or Classification (playing rules, points of allocation, handicap system,
etc.)
A copy of the CURRENT schedule (Lane Draw)
Any known non-bowling dates during the season
When you receive the documents from each league secretary, take time to go through the league
classification report. To make a correction at this stage may save you a lot of trouble in the future. Take
time to go through the players listed in each team and ask again the question: Is each member a new bowler
or a current bowler?
If you have all the information, you should have no problem with setting up the league.
Backups
It is imperative that floppy disk backups be made regularly. How often do you to do a backup? The answer
to that question is simple: If you do not want to re-enter the league data since the last backup, then it is time
to do another! COMPUTER SCORE recommends that backups be made at least once a week. Use Option 1
of the Backup and Restore Menu.
The number of floppy disks required is usually up to 8, with 4 sets of 2 disks each. The second disk of each
set is required only if requested during the backup. (Screen message will ask for second disk.)
You MUST maintain at least 4 sets of backup disks. For the first week of the month use Set number 1, the
second week use Set number 2 and so on. This way you have a backup at least 1 month old. Using only one
set does NOT provide a secure backup system. It is also recommended that the backup disks not be kept at
the Bowling Centre in case of fire or theft.
Important: League Backup does not backup Point of Sale and Café. These are separate procedures that
must also be performed regularly.

TOURNAMENTS
Introduction
The word Tournament may apply to three totally independent parts of the Computer Score system.
1.
Reserve Tournament Lanes. This is used in Control Lanes and allows Tournaments to use the
Lanes and enter their Name & Handicap etc. This method does not print Standing Sheets or
Record Sheets. See: Point Of Sale / Control Lanes Manuals for details.
2.
Tournament Formats. Last Menu Option on Print League Records Menu. This is designed
specifically for tournaments that run over several months, or over a large number of block times.
3.
Tournament Leagues. This is the most commonly used option that makes extensive use of the
League Program to run either Single Squad or Multi Squad Tournaments. Control Lanes treats
this as a special league – so you use the Reserve League Lanes rather than the Reserve Tournament
Lanes Options.
Choosing a Tournament Format
Tournaments may be set up under a multitude of different formats.
What method of Tournament play should be used for different situations?
If the centre does not have to process game results at all, or standings are being prepared by tournament
organisers, then use Method 1.
This is an ideal method if the bowler’s names and team details will not be known until the scheduled time
of play. The Tournament Capture feature may be used to print a Standing Sheet for the current block,
based on pinfall only (point systems not supported) – it cannot be used to combine blocks or squads.
If the Tournament is based on a single block, that is, if all games for a bowler are played at one time, even
if a lane change is required during the block, then use Method 2. A lane schedule is not needed under this
method, but if a lane change is required, the Move Lanes function must be used.
Use method 2 if the number of squad times is large (>10). The tournament must be based on a single
block and standings based on pinfall only (point systems not supported)
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-13
Use Method 1 for events without points allocation, and bowler / team details are not available until the
scheduled time of play.
Use Method 2 for All Events or the Paired Doubles format, based on pinfall totals only.
Use Method 3 if a point system is required, or if games are bowled several days, or small number of
squads.
For example: 6 games are bowled as 3 games on Saturday morning and 3 games in the
Afternoon, or an event with 4 or 5 squads.
Method 1 : Reserve Tournament Lanes
Refer to Chapter B, Lane Control for details of this procedure. However here are some useful hints:
•
If it is a singles event with multiple singles per lane, reserve all the lanes for the maximum number of
bowlers that may play on any lane, or else the required team size.
•
If the Tournament is scheduled for a number of games and lane changes between games, then you can
use the Move Lanes option with either [O]dd and Even or [N]ext Pair between games. All lanes must
have completed their game before using this option. If they move in a format that is not either of these
then it will be best to Reserve Lanes for a single game – and then use Commence Competition Lanes
after each game – they will need to re-enter their name and handicap.
Capture Tournament:
This option will allow you to print the last Tournament Scores from the lanes as described above through
a Tournament Classification which needs to be set up first. Each lane’s scores becomes a new
registration. The bowlers are saved with the First Name being the 5 character name entered on the lane
and the Last Name being the Lane Number – to distinguish two bowlers of the same name. When saving
the scores you may specify a ‘squad’ date and time and an event code. This enables you to print Standing
Sheets for just this squad or for all squads.

[B]oy

Enter the Division Number or leave blank if not applicable.
Once all relevant fields have been entered, there are two options on how to enter the captured scores
into the Classification. Entering [O]verwrite will erase all previously entered scores and replace them
with the scores just bowled. [A]dd to Existing Scores will add the scores just bowled to scores
previously captured from another squad.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-15
An excellent application for the Capture Tournament feature is where a number of schools bowling on
different days of the same week wish to produce a combined standing sheet for that week. The procedure
to achieve this is to select [O]verwrite score for the first school of the week, and then [A]dd to Existing
Scores for every other school thereafter. Print the final standing sheet at the end of the week and repeat
the procedure the following week. This will result in a fresh set of scores and standing sheet being
produced each week for all participating schools.
Capture Tournament Restrictions :The Capture Tournament Scores function is available for a Single Block tournament only with a
Maximum of 6 games in the block.
Results are based on Pinfall only – Point systems are not supported
All events are not supported – but Paired Doubles is supported.
Method 2 : Tournament Formats
A very flexible system based on all games for a player being bowled in a single block without a lane
change. This removes the need for a lane schedule. To use this system you need to create the common
Classification for all blocks, Enter Team Registration Details, and Select the correct Squad Time before
bowling commences.
Creating a Tournament Formats Classification
Create a League Classification as a [T]ournament League for a single block of games. As the number of
teams varies for each squad, simply enter the number of teams as 2. The program will automatically
adjust to the number of teams per squad.
Do not enter any Point system information, but setup the correct handicapping details if handicaps are
used.
This Classification could also be used for a Method 3 “Tournament League”. It is only when you start
entering bowler registrations does the classification become customised for use as a Method 2
“Tournament Formats” tournament. And can no longer be used as a Tournament League.

• Press [A]dd New Registration to open a blank team registration screen
• Type in a Team Name in the Team Name Field
• In the Re-Entry Field, type in the first Tournament Event registration number for that team. This will
allow for multiple entries of the same team. In other words, if the same team will be bowling more
than once, enter the first registration number so that multiple registrations can have their best score
used in calculations. If this field were to be left blank, then it would be possible for teams to win
multiple prizes. If a team is only registered once, the re-entry number should be the same as the
registration number, as shown above.
• Type in the correct squad date and time for that team. Take note of what squad times have been
entered. Care should be taken when entering the squad date and time, and the event code. A 2.30 PM
squad time may be entered as 02:30 or 14:30 – but whichever way you do it – be consistent as this
squad time is used to determine which registrations bowl together, therefore all registrations must be
entered with the same time format. Note: In the above example, do not enter as 2:30!! (Enter as 02:30)

bowler has not been already entered in the Tournament, then you will be given the option of [A]dd
Bowler’s Details or [S]earch Master bowlers database for existing bowlers from other Leagues.
[A]dd Bowler’s Details will allow you to add a new bowler into the Master Bowlers Database and
[S]earch Master will allow you to select an existing bowler for entry into the Tournament.
Type Control W or F10 to save details and exit the registration screen.
Paired Doubles Format Registrations.
The Paired Doubles tournament format is designed so that Doubles Team members can bowl on adjacent
lanes as opposed to bowling on the same lane together. For example: 2nd player on lane 1 and the 2nd
player on lane 2 are members of the same Paired Doubles team.
In this case one member of the pair will need to be on one registration with the second team member on
the next registration. The re-entry number for the second registration will need to be the entry number for
the first registration. For Example Registration #10 has a re-entry number of 10 and Registration #11 has
a re-entry number of 10 also.
Other people on the same registrations must be Team members of additional Paired Doubles teams.
In the above example, Bowlers 1, 2, 3, & 4 are the first team members of four Doubles Teams and the
four bowlers on the next registration (number 11) would be their partners. Remember to enter a Re-Entry
Number of 10 for Registration Number 11 in this example, so that the program can link Registrations 10
and 11 together when the [P]aired Doubles Tournament Standings is printed from the Tournament
Formats Menu.
Because any single registration cannot be split, bear in mind that these four bowlers would always bowl
together as a group.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-19
All Events Format Registrations.
The All Events Tournament Format is based on the rule that a bowler will be entered into three different
registrations (Bowling at three different times). The first registration will be bowled as a Singles Format,
the second as a Standard (Not Paired) Doubles Format and the third as a Teams Format. The results are
then calculated through the [A]ll Events option in the Tournament Standings section of the Tournament
Formats menu.
As the All Events results do not form part of the normal Tournament play, they are printed as an
individual bowler ranking, and there is no need to include a Re-Entry Number in each registration.
Therefore, the All Events standings are based on the player’s Bowler Number, not the Registration
number.
The only time there would need to be a re-entry number is in the case where a Single Player, Doubles Pair
or Full Team wish to re-enter the Singles, Doubles or Teams sections of Regular Tournament
competition, in one or several other time squads for the same event.
Note: The All Events calculation will only use scores for the first entry for any player. Ie: If a player is
entered twice for the three tournament formats, the All Events calculations will only use the
Registrations with the lowest Registration Number for each of the Singles, Doubles and Teams
formats.
Starting the Correct Squad
When you are ready to commence the tournament – you need to select both the league (in the usual way
by pressing ‘0’ for change league code) and the squad time by pressing the ‘=’ from the Computer Score
main menu. You will then be asked to enter the squad date and time – once again use the same time
format as entered for the registrations.
Now start the Control Lanes program and use Reserve League Lanes and Commence Competition Play. If
they change lanes after each game use the move lanes format from the Control Lanes program for either
[O]dd and Even or [N]ext pair formats. Wait until all lanes are finished their game before moving lanes!!
Note: If you change any of the details for the currently selected squad, including Adding Registrations,
Deleting Registrations, Players details within registrations, or any other registration Details, then
you must re-select the Squad using the “=” function so that the software can re-compile the lane
draw for that squad.
Before starting any squad, make sure that you have unreserved all lanes that may be already reserved with
the same League code. In other words, to commence another squad when a different squad is already in
play, unreserve the first squad’s lanes (Reserve with a blank League Code) so that the system can then
reserve the lanes for the next squad.
Printing Tournament Results
When all games are completed, use the Tournament Standings to print the results. This allows selection
by Squad date and time and well as by Team Format, Type of Team, Print Order (Including Paired
Doubles and All Events) and Division number as above.

Method 3 : Tournament Leagues
Computer Score handles Tournaments in a similar way to a League, beginning with the preparation of a
Classification. The basic difference is that a League is played over several weeks, where a Tournament is
played in several blocks of games, with each block requiring a lane change. Other differences occur in
these areas: Standing Sheets for leagues must be printed at the end of each week before the next week’s
match can be commenced, but Tournament blocks can be commenced without having to print the
Standing Sheet of the previous block. Bowlers can be entered into Tournaments databases in the usual
way using the option 'Add Bowlers', or if address information is not of importance, can be entered through
the option 'Display Bowlers' from the [L]eague Secretarial Menu. Tournaments have the option of using
non-sanctioned lane schedules, such as Odd & Even lane changes, etc..
There are two methods of formatting a Tournament: [T] for Teams, or standard Singles formats, or [G]
for Groups of Singles bowling together, and moving together each block.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-21
The Group format simplifies the lane scheduling, and allows the “grouping” of varying number of
bowlers per lane, such as 3 or 5 bowlers per pair of lanes, or where there are multiple Singles per lane.
All bowlers on each lane must move together, and remain in the same [G]roup. It is only appropriate for
individual events.
The Tournament Leagues part of the system is essentially the League system modified to suit weekend
tournaments as opposed to weekly leagues. A Classification must be created, by choosing [T]ournament
from the Add League option of the League Secretarial menu. The differences are simple:1. The term “Block” is substituted for the word “Week”.
2. When creating the classification you are given the option of using an alternate lane schedule to the
standard ABC/ATBC schedule. A “ODD&EVEN” schedule is already in the system, and available for
selection, or else you may create a desired base schedule, and name it accordingly, to be used at any
time for any other tournament.
3. At the completion of a ‘block’ (series of games), the Tournament Code remains on the Reserve
column ready for the commencement of the next block. The next block may be started without the
need to print a Standing Sheet and is now done automatically by the computer.
Group Format Variation:
The [G]roup format allows for a group of Singles (who remain at all times on the same lane together) to
move lanes in a similar way to a Teams event. Basically it is a special teams format with the following
differences:
1. Number of bowlers in a team is substituted with Maximum Number of bowlers on a lane.
2. The number of bowlers belonging to a team is not fixed – and only those who turn up may be selected
on the lanes.
3. The Team Number for the bowler is the Lane number starting from the left most lane for the first
game.
4. The standing sheet is always printed through the Optional Singles format
Here are some useful tips :
1. Care must be taken in the coding of the ‘League’ Codes.
2. If the tournaments consists of Teams Events and Doubles Events – then set up as two independent
tournaments. It is easier to manage this way. Similarly if male and female events where scores are not
combined, then if possible, setup as two independent tournaments.
3. When setup as a number of blocks of 1 game per block then the system will automatically consider the
‘series’ as all games bowled for the complete tournament.
Restrictions :Does not handle All Events (If required, use the Tournament Formats method instead)
Does not handle Paired Doubles (If required, use the Tournament Formats method instead)
In all other aspects Leagues and Tournaments are the same, such as handicapping formats, points
distribution, etc. Some options and functions that are used mainly for Tournaments, such as Divisional
Standings and Join Squads, may also be used for leagues. The on-screen Help text will explain each
option and features.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-22
Divisional Standings.
Using the 'Display Bowlers' menu option (from League Secretarial Menu), bowlers can be allocated to a
Division, 1 through to 9. A standing sheet can then be printed just for that division. Divisional Standings
can also be printed for Male, Female, or Junior bowlers - in a sense it breaks down a league or
tournament into sub-divisions.
Join Squads
Works the other way. It allows several Tournaments (or Leagues) to be merged into a single combined
result. This is used where multiple squads have been created, each with its own classification and bowlers.
Standing Sheets are printed for each squad as they are completed, and a final combined standing sheet can
be printed using this option.
Note: Divisional Standings can still be used in conjunction with Join Squads.
This part of the league secretarial system allows you to JOIN two leagues into a single league, and print a
combined Standing Sheet, or provide a combined Standing Sheet for up to 99 Squads of a Tournament.
In the case of joining up to 9 Leagues or Tournament Squads each league or tournament squad must have
a 2-letter code and a squad number, such as AB1, AB2, AB3 etc. with the Combined Standing facility
being named AB
EXAMPLE: SQUAD TOURNAMENT
The basic Computer Score League Secretarial Software will allow you to maintain records for each
individual squad of a competition.
For example, you are hosting a weekend tournament competition for 4 squads of 16 teams of singles.
Each bowler will play 10 games in 5 blocks of 2 games on Saturday, and the top 16 bowlers will play a
round robin head to head final on Sunday.
Hence, you would create 4 league classifications, one for each squad with League codes SQ1, SQ2, SQ3
& SQ4. The easiest way to do this is to create the first league classification for SQ1 with the following
information:
TOURNAMENT FORMAT
TEAMS
TEAMS PER LANE
BOWLERS IN A TEAM
GAMES IN A BLOCK
NUMBER OF BLOCKS
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
T
16
2 (8 lanes)
1
2
5
E-23
Before proceeding you should create a 16-team base schedule to suit this tournament. When you create the
above classification it will ask you for the name of the base schedule you have created. If the bowlers on
the lane move lanes together, (like bowlers in a team do) then try using the Group option.
TOURNAMENT FORMAT
NUMBER OF LANES
BOWLERS PER LANE
GAMES IN A BLOCK
NUMBER OF BLOCKS
G
8 (8 groups of 2 bowlers)
2 (2 bowlers per group)
2
5
As you can see the word TEAM means GROUP. A bowler belongs to Group 1 if his team number is 1. In
this mode Team names do not have to be entered as these will default to the bowlers name.
The above specifies that there are 2 bowlers in a group who move lanes together. Now you only need an
8-lane schedule, instead of a 16-team schedule. Also, it will allow a different number of bowlers on each
lane without the need to modify the schedule. It will automatically configure a 2 bowler grid if 2 bowlers
in group 1, or a single bowler grid if only 1 bowler in group 1.
When creating the other League classifications, instead of selecting T for Tournament, select F for 'From'.
Then enter the 'From' League Code as SQ1. This will give you a new classification but all the prompts
will be filled in from the SQ1 League.
Now enter the Team and Bowlers names for each squad. With a singles tournament the easiest way to do
this is to use the Display Bowlers option (this option is quick, but does not allow the entry of addresses).
You will also need to create a Classification with a 2 letter League Code SQ to hold the results of all the 4
squads combined. Once again, make the classification 'From' SQ1. The # of teams need not be changed as
this will be filled in when the squads are joined. If the squads were entered as a Group tournament, then
the combined classification must be of the group type ! The codes used for the Squads and the combined
classification must follow strict rules:
For a tournament of less than 10 squads , use a 2 character code for the league. For example, NT for no
tap tournament. Each squad is to be coded as NT1 through to NT9, with the NT code to hold the
combined results. For a tournament with more than 9 squads, use a single letter for the league code. For
example, T for tournament then T1...T99 may be used as squad codes.
If you are running the Round Robin Tournament, then create the base schedule to suit (in this case, 16
teams). Now create a league classification with code SQR in readiness for the Round Robin. The code is
not important as long as it does not contain a number (as it may be confused as a squad).
In this example it would be:
TOURNAMENT FORMAT
TEAMS
TEAMS PER LANE
BOWLERS IN A TEAM
GAMES IN A BLOCK
NUMBER OF BLOCKS
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
T (G is not consistent with Round Robin format)
16
2 (8 lanes or 1 over 16 lanes)
1
1
15
E-24
You are now ready to commence the competition. Print out the Standing Sheet for each squad at the end
of each block as usual. The new feature of the squad program allows you to print out the combined
standing sheet for all squads when all games are complete.
Change the current league to SQ, the combined squad classification. Now go to the extra Standing Sheet
formats menu to the right of Print Standing Sheet. Select JOIN SQUADS. It will ask you to confirm this
league code and then if you wish divisional standings. Following this you may specify the number of
teams to be printed on the standing sheet. The program will now join all the required number of bowlers
&/or teams for each squad into the combined SQ league. Now you can print the standing sheet for the
overall competition.
Note: Should any further bowling or score corrections be made for any of the squads, then you need to run
the Join Program again (to ensure up to date information) before reprinting the combined Standing Sheet.
That's it for the Saturday competition. When the Saturday competition is complete, run the JOIN
SQUADS again but specify the top 16 bowlers only. Now SQ will have the top 16 bowlers for the Round
Robin. You may either enter the 16 bowlers into the SQR league, or run the 'Initialise League' option in
the Backup Menu with SQR as the current league, and initialise from SQ. Answer NO to copy scores and
NO to copy schedule. Note that the pinfall and game count for each bowler has been carried forward. If
you do not want this then run the End of League Season on SQR, and start a new season which will clear
the carried over pinfall and points.
Now process the Sunday round robin tournament as usual.
Exercise 1: 3 Man Team Format
Setting up a 3-man team Tournament, with a number of teams bowling 3 blocks x 2 games. No points,
just scratch pinfall.
Step 1:
Verify that you have a “base” schedule in the program, that is suitable for this Tournament
of your required number of teams. If not, create it and give it an appropriate name of up to
8 characters. This is achieved through option [4] Edit Base Schedule from the Schedule
Menu.
Move the cursor back to the name field, and type in your desired name for this
particular schedule, then the number of teams for this tournament. This newly created
schedule will then be available at any time, simply by entering its name.
The name SCHEDULE is used for the ABC / ATBC base schedules, ODD & EVEN
is for the commonly used format of Even lanes moving a pair of lanes to the Right, and
Odd lanes moving a pair of lanes to the Left.
Step 2:
Create the League Classification. Enter League Code and select [T] for “Add Tournament”
and then [T] again for standard Team Tournament format. Fill in Tournament
Classification, leaving all points distribution blank, except for the Points for Pinfall area enter 1 point for 1 pin, and ensure all prompts that are [H] for handicap are changed to [S]
for scratch.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-25
When you save the Classification you will be asked for the Schedule name: you
should then enter the name of your chosen schedule, or simply use the ABC/ATBC
schedule by pressing Enter.
Step 3:
Enter the bowlers and team names using the option [7] Display Bowlers. If you wish to
have the names entered into the Master Bowlers Database, then you need to input the
address of each bowler, through [5] Bowler Add, and [4] Define Team Details in the usual
way.
Step 4:
Check the Tournament you have created - print the schedule and verify that it is correct.
Reserve League Lanes from the Control Lanes menu, and Commence Competition Play for
block 1. Verify that Teams and Bowlers are displayed correctly, then Abandon Lanes and
select [N] to “Save Y/N ?”
Step 5:
Everything is now prepared. Reserve League Lanes and Commence Competition Play for
each of the blocks in turn, on the day of competition as required.
Step 6:
Print the Standing Sheet.
Note:
At the end of play each block, the next team will be automatically started on the lane. If
you do not wish this to happen (For Example, final blocks played later in the day) then
unreserve the Tournament before the next block would start.
Tournament Blocks. What should be specified as a block?
Basically, a block consists of all games that are played on the same lane. If 3 games are bowled and then
another 3 games are bowled on another lane, then we have 2 blocks of 3 games.
If 6 games are bowled and the bowlers move lanes after each game then we have 6 blocks of 1 game.
Note: The maximum number of games in a block is 6. If 8 games are bowled on a single lane then break
it up into 2 blocks of 4 games
Exercise 2: 3 Man Team with Separate Squads
A similar competition to the above is played with one squad of bowlers on Saturday, and a second squad
of bowlers on the Sunday, and a combined Standing Sheet will be required at the end of the Sunday
squad.
Step 1:
Create the Saturday Tournament as in Exercise 1 above. Ensure that the
Tournament Code consists of two letters and one number, representing the squad
number. For example, CT1 for Centre Tournament - Squad 1.
Step 2:
Create the Sunday Tournament as in Exercise 1 above. The code this time will be
CT2 , for Centre Tournament - Squad 2, but instead of selecting [T] for Tournament,
select [F] for From, and enter CT1 as the From option.
Now the Classification will be filled in automatically, as entered for CT1.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-26
Step 3:
To obtain a combined Standing Sheet, you will need to create a classification to
hold the combined results.
This combined classification must be given a code consisting of the first two letters
only (in this case, CT for Centre Tournament ) and you should use the [F] for From option.
The number of teams can be the same as CT1, as it will be changed and updated
during the Join Squad function.
Step 4:
Process the Tournament on the Saturday and Sunday (CT1 and CT2). Print the
Standing Sheet for those Squads as required.
Step 5:
At the completion of the Sunday Squad (CT2), change the currently selected league
to CT. Now select [P]rint League Records, choose [4] Standing Sheet, and [4] Join
Squads, and answer the prompts. You can now print the Standing Sheet for CT, giving
you the combined results of CT1 and CT2 in the classification of your choice.
In the example above, we have printed the combined standing sheet at the end of play for both squads.
You could print the combined standing sheets at anytime, possibly at the end of each block on Sunday.
Simply, repeat Step 5 above whenever you wish to print the combined Standing Sheet.
Important:
The use of correct Tournament Codes as described above (CT1, CT2, CT) is imperative,
otherwise the Join Squads function will not be able to locate the squads that are to be
combined.
Exercise 3: 60 Player Singles Format
Setting up a 60 bowler singles tournament, of 3 bowlers per lane over 20 lanes, playing 6 games in 3
blocks of 2 games, using the ODD & EVEN schedule format.
This format utilises a schedule where all 3 bowlers on Even lanes move a pair to the right, and all 3
bowlers on Odd lanes move a pair to the left, so the [G]roup Tournament format will be used. The
schedule will then be based on a simple 20-team lane-draw, rather than a complex 60-team schedule.
Step 1:
Using the Edit Base Schedule option check that an ODD & EVEN schedule exists
for 20 teams, then press Ctrl_W to save this schedule.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-27
Step 2:
Use Add League to create the League Classification, and select [T] for Tournament
and then [G] for “group of singles” option. Enter the number of lanes as 20 and the
maximum number of bowlers per lane as 3. The number of blocks is 3, with 2 games per
block. Points distribution in this example are specified in the Individual Scoring section as
going to the [I]ndividual. (Do not enter any points in the Team Scoring section). Ensure
that all [H] for handicap options are changed to [S] for scratch, and if this is to be simply a
scratch tournament only, enter 1 point for 1 pin in the [4] Points for Pinfall. If the
competition is based on Petersen Points only, it is important to fill in the [4] Points for
Pinfall as required (e.g.1 point per 50 pins, etc.). Additionally, if points for Win or Draw
are also allocated, they can be entered in the [2] Points for a Win fields. Note, that the
Team Total Pinfall on the standing sheet is always scratch for the [G]roup option, so make
sure that [S]cratch is selected for Team Total Pinfall. All other methods of points
distribution are easily followed by the prompts in the Awarded and Basis columns of
Individual Scoring.
Hint: A common point system is total pins + 20 points for a win. This is setup as a
combination of “1 point for 1 pin” and 20 in the “Points for a Win”
Step 3:
Enter the bowlers using the Display Bowlers option, (or the Add Bowlers option, if
you wish to include addresses, as well as entry into the Master Bowlers Database). As this
tournament consists of a [G]roup of Singles, then Team names are not to be entered. If
using the Display Bowlers option, when you select Team 1, you must enter all 3 bowlers
that will be starting on the left most lane for block 1. Team 2 will include all 3 bowlers on
the following lane, and so on. Each lane does not have to have a full lineup of 3 bowlers it may consist of a [G]roup of 1, 2, or 3 bowlers for any lane.
If you use the Add Bowlers option, ensure that the Team Number represents the starting lane for
that bowler - for example, the first 3 bowlers will all be in Team 1, the next 3 bowlers in Team 2, etc.
Step 4:
Process the Tournament as in the previous examples. You may wish to print a
Standing Sheet after each Block.
Exercise 4: 30 Bowler Singles Format, 3 Per Pair
Variation of Exercise 3, with 30 bowlers in a “3 bowlers per Pair” format using 20 lanes, and requiring
separate standings for Males and Females.
Step 1:
This format will be able to utilise the previously created ODD & EVEN 20 Team
schedule.
Step 2:
Create the Tournament Classification as in Exercise 3, using the [G]roup format,
except that the maximum number of bowlers per lane will be 2. There is no harm in
specifying the maximum bowlers per lane even as 6 except that a 6 man grid will be
initially displayed. Make sure it is sufficient for you needs as it cannot be changed later.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-28
Step 3:
Step 4:
Step 5:
Enter the bowlers. Enter just one bowler for lane 1 (Team 1), and two bowlers for
lane 2 (Team 2) etc.. Once again, you have the flexibility to enter 2 bowlers , 3 bowlers or
up to 4 bowlers per pair.
Process the Tournament as in the previous exercises.
From [P]rint League Records, “arrow down” to [4] Standing Sheet, and using the
Divisional Singles option, select [M]ale and print a standing sheet, then repeat, selecting
[F]emale.
Exercise 5: Separate Standing Sheets for different grades
Variation of Exercise 4, where a Tournament includes “A” Grade bowlers and “B” Grade bowlers, and
separate standing sheets are required.
Step 1:
Step 3:
Repeat Steps 1 and 2 as in the previous exercise.
Enter the bowlers’ details, as in Step 3 above, but also include the Division Number
1 (“A” Grade) or Number 2 (“B” Grade) for all bowlers.
Note : When entering bowlers’ names through Display Bowlers you can classify each bowler according
to a desired division, and you have a choice of up to 9 different divisions.
Regardless of what divisional criteria you require (grade, average, age, etc.) you must use a
divisional number, between 1 and 9. (Letters cannot be used.)
Step 4:
Step 5:
Process the Tournament as in the previous exercises.
From [P]rint League Records, “arrow down” to [4] Standing Sheet, and using the
Divisional Singles option, select [1] and print a standing sheet, then repeat, selecting [2].
Trouble Shooting : Tournament Formats
Unable to Join Squads
League Codes may be inconsistent. If the Tournament has 9 Squads or less, the code for the Combined
Classification must consist of 2 alphabetical letters only. Codes for all other squads must consist of the
same two alphabetical letters, plus the number of each individual Squad.
For example, CT1, CT2, CT3, etc., with CT being the Combined Squad code.
If the Tournament has 10 Squads or more, the code for the Combined Classification must consist
of 1 alphabetical letter only, and codes for all other squads must consist of the same alphabetical letter,
plus the number of each individual Squad.
For example, T1, T2...T10, T11, etc, with T being the Combined Squad code.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-29
Bowlers names don’t move when starting the next block
If the names of the bowlers don’t move when the next block of the tournament is started, then you should
check the following:
1.
The number of the block started. If it is not correct, abandon the lane and recommence the lanes
and specify the correct block number.
2.
The League Schedule is incorrect. Check the league schedule and if any corrections then restart
the lanes as in 1.
Total Pinfall showing scratch, not handicap on the Standing Sheets
In the [G]roup format the computer automatically prints the Standing Sheet as an optional Singles Standing
Sheet where total pinfall is always displayed as scratch pinfall. This can be overcome by using Petersen
Points on the basis of one point awarded for each one pin based on handicap. Then the total points will in
fact be the total Handicap Pinfall with the advantage that the match play points will be the Handicap Series
Pinfall for the current block.
Scratch Play showing Handicaps on the Lanes
Even if points are not being awarded for the Tournament as the results are based purely on pinfall, it is
important that scratch be specified instead of handicap in all the points and award sections.

A complete restructure of the league mid season such as the number of games in a series or
number of bowlers in a team may be changed during the season, by creating a NEW League
Classification. The easiest method is to create it [F]rom (in the Add League Menu) the original
league code. This will provide as exact duplicate of the original but allowing the editing of
either one of these 3 options. When editing is complete and the new classification is saved

options.
List All League Classifications.
This option will list to the screen or printer the details about each league, including code, name,
classification, next competition date, time of play, number of bowlers, teams, lanes and vacancies.
An option to print in HTML format is available and can be used as a basis for a Internet Web Page or
Information Terminal consisting of League Standing Sheets, Team Record Cards and Individual Average
Record Card.
Define Team Names.
This option will record the name of each team in the league, and will allow any adjustments to be made to
any team, with regards to names, pinfall, deferred match, high game/series and bonus points.
The “Reset Week” column in the Adjustment screen is used to record the week number in which any one
or more teams have left the league. In the event of new teams taking their place, the previous team’s High
Game/Series will not be held.
Upon selecting the item you are provided with the following options :
[A]djustments :
This option enables you to enter the team names. If the league is being entered midseason then the team pinfall, team points, High Game and Series can also be entered
here. The Reset Week column may be used to tell the computer that a Team has been
replaced by another team of bowlers from a given week – This prevents the new team
from inheriting the High Game and Series of the previous team. Also use the Adjust
Pinfall and Points to manipulate the carry over pins and points for the new team.
[B]onus Points : This is used to accommodate any point systems not automatically handled by the
computer – for example point awarded is team arrives in sponsors shirt.
[D]eferred :
If deferred Team match play (pre or post bowling) is allowed then you can use this
option to verify or change the order of play.
Note: Do not use Bonus points or Adjust Points to change points awarded for a week because the
Computer System differs from the League Secretary. The computer is usually right – so check the
point scoring system defined in the classification. Find the problem. Adjusting points will only
cause a problem later on.

c) The number of weeks for each ‘split season’
Note : Must include the number of weeks of positional rounds within the round.
Number of Rounds in a Season :

Page 2 : Handicapping and Point scoring systems.
Handicap Calculation - Percentage :
Usually 80% or 100%. Should be entered as zero if a scratch league.
Handicap Calculation - Base :
Usually 200, but can be any figure to suit the standard of the league.
Handicap Calculation - Maximum :
Limits the handicap to this figure. Leave blank if no maximum set.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-38
Handicap Calculation - Minimum :
Limits the minimum handicap to this figure. Leave blank if no minimum set. Usually a handicap cannot be
negative. If negative handicaps allowed then enter NEG. If negative handicaps allowed and is calculated as
the number of pins above the Base then enter HUN to calculate negative handicap as 100% of base.
Vacancy Score :
Enter the Vacancy score used by the league here. In a handicap League, the handicap will be added to this
number. The Vacancy Score Penalty can be used to adjust the Vacancy Score. For example if using 80% of
200 and the Vacancy Score is 120 and its handicap is 64 then enter 120 as the Vacancy score and 0 for the
Penalty. If the Vacancy Score is 110 and its handicap is 64 then enter 120 as the Vacancy score and 10 for
the Penalty.
Basis for figuring Blind Scores :
The first field should be left blank unless the penalty pins are calculated as a % of the bowler’s average. The
other fields specify the penalty pins (or percentage) to be deducted for each consecutive week the blindscore
is used.
Vacancy Score Penalty :
Usually 0 or sometimes 10. See Vacancy Score above for example.
Basis for Team Handicap :
1. Team Hcp is sum of bowlers handicap. That is, calculated as the total of all bowlers handicaps.
2. Calculated from each teams average
3. Calculated as difference of teams average
4. As (2) but negative at 100%
5. As (2) but no negatives
This is the method by which the team handicap is calculated as added to the team pinfall to figure team
game won or lost on handicap. Usually the team handicap is simply the addition of all the bowlers
handicaps. Method 2 gives a similar results to method 1 but with less rounding down – it also allows
negative team handicaps. The handicap calculated from each of the bowlers’ averages is less accurate than
the handicap calculated from the Team average. Method 3 is where the team with the highest average is
given a handicap of zero, and the other team has a handicap calculated as the difference of the averages.
Method 4 ensures that if the team handicap is negative it is calculated at 100% not the usual 80% or 90%.
Method 5 does not allow negative team handicaps – will become zero.

Method 3 should be discouraged as it does not correctly calculate High Team Game or Series with
Hcp. Also, it cannot be displayed on the upper monitors.
Basis Playing against absent player :
0.
Bowl Average
5.
Bowl Average less 5 points
10.
Bowl Average less 10 points
EX. Exceed score of absent player
This option only applies to individual head to head points. If playing against an absent player, being either
a Blind Score, Vacancy Score or Forfeit Team then how does the bowler win the head to head point. The
first 3 options simply mean that the bowler needs to bowl above his average, or above average-5 , or
above average – 10. The last option (EX) means that if the bowler is bowling head to head with either a
Vacancy Score or a Blind Score then he needs to beat the value of that score to win the head to head point.
This option does NOT in itself give head to head points to the absent player (see next option).
Absent Player Points :
1. Absent Player cannot win head to head
2. Wins if opposing bowler loses, draw if both absent
3. Point to winning team if both absent
4. Point to highest of both absent
5. As (2) but Vacancy Score only
Once again this only applies to individual head to head points. The previous option (Basis playing against
absent player) indicates how the bowler can win head to head against the absent player. Usually the absent
player cannot win the head to head point. However, should the bowler not win the head to head point then
options 2 to 5 above will give the absent player the head to head point. Option 5 will give the absent
player the point only if the absent player is a Vacancy Score.
Options 2 to 4 vary only if an Absent Player is against an Absent Player. In this case method 2 gives each
half a point each, method 3 gives the head to head point to the team that wins the team game, and method
4 gives the point to the highest Blind Score (or Vacancy Score).
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-40
Basis Playing against forfeit team :
Enter Number of Penalty Pins (0) for team average
Leave blank for 10 penalty pins for each bowler in the lineup
W. Win against forfeit for any score
This option relates to Team Game Won or Lost. If the team is playing against a forfeit team then to
determine if the team wins the game, either :1. Leave field blank for 10 penalty pins for each bowler in the lineup (the usual)
2. Enter the total number of penalty pins (maybe 30 for a 3 man team, or 0 for team average)
3. Enter W if the team always wins when playing against a forfeit.
Note :
There is a minor difference (relates to use of Vacancy Score) between leaving the field blank,
and entering 10 by the number of players. For a 3 man team with a Vacancy Score as one of the
bowlers, then leaving the field blank takes 20 pins off (as 2 actual bowlers in the lineup).
Whereas entering 30 pins into this field takes 30 pins off the Team average regardless of the
Vacancy Scores in the lineup.
Series if partial forfeit :
1. Compare total of each game individually
2. Compare total of played games only
W. Win always

In the above example team 1 must beat their average – 30 to win the first game, Which is 447-30=417,
Team 1 wins the first game. Therefore, Team 2 cannot win the first game, nor the series of the forfeited
first game. How then does Team 1 win or lose the Series?
Method W : Win always. Team 1 wins the series should Team 2 forfeit any game.
Method 2 : Compare total of played games only. Team 1 wins as 1488 > 1090
Method 1 : Remember that Team 1 won the first game in comparing their team game against 417, being
their team average less 30 penalty pins. We now use the 417 for the forfeited game giving Team 2 a series
total of 1090+417.
Team 1 loses as 1488< 1090+417. Note Team 2 cannot win the series point regardless.
Although method 1 is the most consistent – after all if Team 2 forfeited all 3 games then we would
compare the series total based on 417 x 3 regardless – [the ATBC (Australian) ruled that method 2 is
preferred. Maybe you should check with the ABC.]

Team Scoring – Points making Average :
Points can be awarded to the team should the team game (or series) equal or exceed the Team Average.
The BASIS option allows you to select whether the team needs to equal (E) or Beat (B) their average.
There is also the option to select that the team needs to exceed their average by 5 (option 1), 10 (option 2),
15 (option 3) etc..
Team Scoring – Points for a Win :
Points can be awarded to the team should they beat their opponent team for game and/or series. The basis
is used to select Scratch, Handicap or Both
Individual Scoring :
This section allows points to be awarded for each player of the team. These points are usually awarded to
the team. That is, are included into the Team Points within the Team Standings section on the top of the
Standing Sheet. An AWARDED option is provided so that the points can be directed to the individual.
That is, are included into the Individual Points within the Individual Standings on the second part of the
standing sheet. The points can also be directed to both areas if required.
Individual Scoring – Points for Making Average :
Points may be awarded should the players game and/or series exceeds the players average. Once again the
basis can determine whether it the game need only equal or must beat the average.
Individual Scoring – Points for a Win :
This option is for Head to Head Points. Points can be awarded should the player exceed the game score of
their opponent. The Basis is used to select whether this is based on Scratch or Handicap or Highest Above
Average.
Individual Scoring – Points for a Win :
This option is the same as above. The second line is provided so that additional Head to Head options can
be accommodated.
Individual Scoring – Points for Pinfall :
This option is for Petersen Points. If used, then the most common formats are :
1 pt per 1 pin : Used for Tournaments to have points match scratch or handicap pinfall
1 pt per 50 pins
: A common format but can be confusing. Computer allocates points in a
mathematical correct way. That is 80 pins results is 1.60 points not 1.30 as commonly recorded manually
to reflect the leftover pins.
1 pt per 100 pins
: Most common form of petersen points.
The basis is used to select Scratch, Handicap or Both.

Scoresheets :
Option to enable to disable the automatic printing of Scoresheets at the end of the series.
Awards :
The first option can be used to limit awards to individual bowlers who have played a predetermined
number (or percentage) of games. It can limit just handicap awards or both handicap and scratch. The next
options prioritise the awards if the bowler/team are only eligible for one or two of the four possible
awards.
Score Grid :
Although bowlers may choose their style of grid by pressing [G] on the lanes, this option will provide the
intitial grid style of either 5 or 10 frame grid. It can also be set as Management Decision, which means
that the default is picked up from the Lane Monitor Setup menu option.
Team Deferred Play :
This option enables or disables week out of order Team Bowling. For example, should a team defer week
8 to be bowled at the completion of week 10 then according to the ABC rules the handicaps to be used for
week 8 must be the handicaps at the end of week 10. Management of Team Deferred Play requires a good
understanding of the rules and if not required then it is recommended that this option be disabled.
Pacer Bowling :
This option enables or disables the ability to enter Pacers on the lanes for this league. If Pacers not
allowed to bowl with this league then disable this option.
Casino Bowling :
This option specifies what style of promotional game that the league plays. If they never use a
promotional game then enter 0 to disable. If they use different games or on a casual basis then select G for
Game Setup – that is, whatever is selected within Game Setup from Control Lanes will be played. NOTE:

Brackets and Sweepers.
These formats or “Side Pots” may be used in conjunction with any League or Tournament, but without
affecting the outcome of the regular League (or Tournament) play.
The Brackets, Doubles Brackets and Sweeper programs are accessed from the Print League Records,
Brackets & Sweepers Menu. The three menu items: Brackets Entry Doubles Brackets Entry, and
Sweepers Entry provide the registration screens for each of these events, and are very similar to the
Tournament Formats registration entry screen. Additionally, there is also the facility to Randomise
Entries for Brackets, Doubles Brackets and/or Sweepers, adding a further element of chance to this
exciting package. Results of Brackets, Doubles Brackets and Sweepers are provided through the Print
Brackets, Print Doubles and Print Sweepers menu items.
Brackets
The Brackets program is designed to allow a group of bowlers (not necessarily from the same team) to
play an additional elimination contest, totally separate from the normal league competition, but using the
actual scores bowled in the League match.
A Brackets match is an elimination competition, or a “Side-Pot”, with a specific number of entrants,
usually 8, playing in any singles bracket, however, many individual Brackets can be played on any chosen
Week. This singles event can be designed for Men / Women / Boys / Girls and for either Scratch /
Handicap, with the facility to print Cheques for Prizefund payouts.
A Singles Bracket can consist of either:
8 Bowlers for a 3 game series
16 Bowlers for a 4 game series
8 Bowler (3 Games Series) Bracket sample results:

Sweepers
A Sweepers event is a combination of Doubles, which allows competitive bowlers to enjoy an additional
competition in conjunction with regular League Bowling. The Sweepers program allows a player to
combine with any other bowler or bowlers (not necessarily from the same regular team) to form one or
more “Side-Pot” doubles combinations and compete separately from the normal league schedule, by using
the series scores bowled for the league match. The Sweepers results, as with Brackets, have no bearing or
influence on the points or pins calculations for the normal league results, nor does it affect the points and
pins of the participants.
The Sweepers format uses the same style of entry screen as the Brackets Format to record the doubles
combination.

If you access the Sweepers registration area for a league that has not been used with Sweepers before,
then the program will ask if you wish to start a new registration file. Answer [Y].
The program will then ask for a week number. Enter the correct week number.
It will then ask for a registration number. Just press Enter to Add a new Registration.
At this point you can either [A]dd a Registration or [L]ook Up a bowlers details. Choose [A]dd New
Registration.
The program now goes to the Sweepers Registration Screen. This screen is similar to the Brackets
Registration screen.

Doubles Brackets
Doubles Brackets is an extension of the normal Brackets part of the program with the exception that two
players combine their game scores to produce each “Doubles” score. The registration process is the same
as per the normal Brackets format. The two players who will be in the same team must be in adjacent
positions in the Brackets Registration. For example, if Nola Leslie and Mavis Simpson wish to enter the
Doubles Bracket as one team then they must be position number 1 and 2 as shown below.

Congress Awards
The Congress awards system as used in the Computer Score system is based on a single letter code for
each Congress type of award. A bowler may be eligible for awards from any, or all Congresses indicated
(Eg. ABC, YABA etc.) for each league that he or she belongs to. Viewing or Editing any Congress
Awards of interest can be accessed from the Eligibility field of the Edit Bowlers screen in the League
Secretarial Menu.
The awards system is setup from the Awards Print & Setup screen from the Print League Records,

Name = Short name of award e.g. 500/3 to be 500 pins over 3 game series
Pins = Number of pins for game(s) required to achieve award
+Ave = Or the number of pins above average required to achieve award
Game = Number of games for pinfall or above average
Ave = Eligible for award only if less than this average (optional)
Rpt = [N]o Limit, [A]nniversary(Sanction), [S]eason, [L]ifetime
To setup an individual award, enter a description and fill in the Pins or the +Ave (over average), Game,
Ave and Rpt fields.
To explain some of the above awards:
• In order to gain the 298 Game award, a player needs to bowl 298 pins in 1 game and there is no limit
on the number of times this award can be won.
• In order to gain the 700 / 3 award a player needs to bowl over 700 pins for 3 consecutive games and
this award can be won only once during a league season.
• To achieve the 150 Over award a player needs to bowl 150 pins over average in 1 game and this award
can be won only once in a league season.
As you can see, the Pins and +Ave fields are really mutually exclusive so that there should never be a
situation where there is data in both fields.
Other options available in the Rpt field are:
• [A]nniversary
Receive the Award only once within every Sanction period.
• [L]ifetime
To be awarded once and once only.
The Ave field is used to limit the awards to bowlers, according to their average. Leave this field blank if
the award is available for bowlers with any average or indicate a maximum average limit for which the
over average award is achievable. For example, you could limit the 100 Over award (100 over average) to
those bowlers whose average is less than 80 by entering a value of 80 in the Ave field.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL

Print Awards
By selecting [P]rint you can print out eligible awards achieved by bowlers in any one league, or all
leagues for a selected date range. After pressing [P]rint, select the league code, or leave blank for all
league and enter a suitable date range. Also enter the desired Congress Code for which the awards are
achieved, or leave blank to print for all awards.
It is also possible to print out awards automatically as part of the standing sheet. To achieve this, it is
necessary to enter a [C]ongress Awards or a [B]oth Pin Awards & Congress Awards in the Pin Awards
field in the third page of the League Classification.
Award Eligibility
The [E]ligibility option of the program allows you to select Congresses for all bowlers in the currently
selected league. This allows you to avoid having to specify awards for every bowler in a league through
the Edit Bowlers program.
After pressing [E]ligibility, you are asked to select awards from up to eight congresses for availability to
all bowlers in the current league.
After selecting the desired awards, you then have the following options:
[A]dd to Existing Eligibility
[O]verwrite Eligibility
[C]lear All
This allows you to add the selected Congress awards for the current league
and also keep any existing eligibility settings intact.
This allows you to replace the existing eligibility settings for all members
of the current league with any other Congress of your choice.
This option will actually clear out all eligibility settings and leave all
bowlers in the current league without any awards availability.
Note: After performing the [E]ligibility update procedure all members of the selected league will be
eligible for the chosen Congress Awards, however any new bowlers added to the league after
that point will have to be updated manually through the Eligibility field in Edit Bowlers or by
performing another [E]ligibility update.
General Parameters
The only other setting that affects the Pin Awards database can be found in the General Parameters
section of Utility Menu, Control Screen Setup menu. This field is called Pin Awards – Highest Applicable
Y/N.
• A Y in this field means that if a bowler is eligible for a high pin award, then he or she will also be
awarded any lower value pin awards that have not yet been achieved.
• A N in this field means that if a bowler is eligible for a high pin award, then he or she will be awarded
that level only, leaving the lower pin awards still available to be achieved at a later date.
For Example:
A player who has never beaten a score of 100 has just bowled a score of 178:
• A Y in the Pin Awards field will be awarded all levels below a 175. Eg. 150, 125 and 100.
• A N in the Pin Awards field will be awarded only the 175 level, and the lower values may be awarded
whenever the specific scores are bowled in subsequent games.

PRINTING LEAGUE RECORDS IN HTML
As well as being able to print League Standing Sheets, Team Record Cards, and Individual Record Cards,
you are able to configure Computer Score to Automatically produce HTML (Hyper Text Markup
Language) which is suitable for publication of your league’s results onto your own Internet Web Page.
Once each league has been set to produce HTML in the Classification, (See: League Classification for
more information.) there are two additional options that need to be set in the General Parameters section
of the Utility, Control Screen Setup menu.
These two options are:
HTML Enable
Placing a N here will remove the [H]TML option from where you select [S]creen,
[P]rint, or [F]ile when you print any report. Note: If you have set the HTML option in
the Classification, then the HTML will still be produced upon printing the Standing
Sheet, you just won’t have the [H]MTL option present to specifically produce HTML
at any time for all reports. You should have an N here if you are not using Windows
95/98 or you do not have a Internet Browser configured on your computer.
Placing a V here will include the [H]TML option so that you can produce HTML at any
time, and after the HTML is produced your Internet Browser will be automatically
started so you can view what you have just produced. Note: If your Computer Score
system is running under Windows 95/98 then you should be able to use this option.
See your Windows documentation for more information on your Internet Browser.
Placing a Y here will include the [H]TML option but your Internet Browser will not be
launched, and you can then continue within the Computer Score menu system.
HTML Output Directory
This field determines the destination of the HTML files. You can then publish the
entire directory onto the Internet using a FTP program.
If you were to enter, for example, C:\HTML then the output files will be copied to the
HTML directory of the Hard Drive of whichever computer you are currently using.
Alternatively if your system is running under Windows 95/98 you could enter
P:\HTML which will send the output to the HTML directory on the network drive
called P:
All Computer Score computers map the P Drive over the Local Area Network to the
C:\COMSCORE directory of the COMSCORE computer. In the above example,
P:\HTML will go to the C:\COMSCORE\HTML directory of the COMSCORE
computer. Note: Please make sure that any destination directory exists before
attempting to use HTML output.
One final option is to enter the full network path for any shared drive or directory on
any computer.
For example the above example could be written as
\\COMSCORE\COMSCORE\HTML being the COMSCORE directory (shared) on the
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-57
COMSCORE computer. See your Windows documentation for further information on
how to share a directory or whole drive.

Add / Edit A Player's Game Scores.
This option allows the manual entry of a particular week's play for any one, or all players in the league.
To enter a teams game scores – specify the number of the week and the number of the team. Now for each
bowler of the lineup enter the number of the bowler and the game scores. Blindscores are entered with the
asterisk before the score. For example *120
Typing in VS for the bowler number enters vacancy Scores. If different Vacancy Scores are used for Male
and Female then specify your choice by entering VSM (male) or VSF (Female) as the bowler number.
Note: The full lineup of bowlers should be entered. Be careful when entering a change of lineup from
game to game.
For example, should FRED bowl 1 game of the 3 game series, and JOE takes over and bowls the last two
games then you need to use the word MISS to specify the games not bowled by that bowler. Harry bowls
all three games. It should be entered as :FRED
JOE
HARRY
120
MISS MISS
MISS 130
140
100
120
115
Having JOE entered immediately below FRED tells the computer that FRED took over from Joe. Do not
enter it as:FRED
HARRY
JOE
120
MISS MISS
100
120
115
MISS 130
140
In this case the computer would misinterpret the order of bowling and miscalculate the results. Care must
be taken.
To enter a Prebowl – specify the number of the week and the number of the team for the prebowl. For
each bowler who has prebowled enter the Bowler Number and Game scores. Press ^W or F10 to save and
answer Yes to the question confirming that it is a prebowl.
To delete all scores – Using the space bar erase the bowler numbers and game scores.
To transfer the scores to another week. If scores were entered into the incorrect week press the F5 key and
specify the correct week number.
Audit League Records.
As with printing a Standing Sheet, this option will recalculate the bowlers' averages and handicaps for the
current league season. An option exists to establish bowlers carry average, to be equal to the bowlers
current average. A useful option for new bowlers within a league.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-60
Change The Number Of Teams.
A password is required for access to this option. It will allow the number of teams in the league to be
increased or decreased by 2, as of a given week. If you wish to change the number of teams for a single
week, use the Scheduled Teams option. When changing the number of teams, you will be asked for the
number of lanes required. It can be used for singles or doubles leagues to put multiple teams per lane.
Make sure you print the resulting schedule & confirm it is suitable. Use Schedule Repair or Manually edit
the Schedule if required.
Change The Number Of Rounds.
A password is required for access to this option. It will allow the number of rounds to be increased or
decreased by 1. Make sure you print the resulting League Schedule and check for errors.
League Database Validation.
This option will correct any damaged database files. If any errors are displayed, then perform this
function a second time to confirm that all the errors are corrected.
Reindex Databases
This function will recreate all indexes used in the Computer Score System. There is no harm in using this
option, and can be performed at any time when all consoles are back to the Main Menu. This option can
be thought of as an internal audit and reorganisation of the databases.

This option allows you to lookup or edit all current and past bowlers details including names, addresses

Most centres record Pin Awards using a card system or other form of hand written records. The League
Secretarial Program will automatically maintain your pin awards and print a list of bowlers and their
award achievements on the League Standing Sheet.
To fully utilise this part of the program, you will need to enter from your records the pin award
information into the Bowlers Master File. Using the help prompts call up each bowler and enter your
information in the pin awards section.
Note:
Do not activate the Pin Awards display facility in the Standing Sheet (through the League
Classification) until all current Pin Award Records have been transferred to each bowler’s
individual record screen (From Edit Bowler)
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-62
Master Bowler Add
This option allows you to add bowlers into the Master Bowlers Database even if they do not currently
belong to any league. Hence the master bowlers database can be maintained as a full mailing list.
However, we suggest you use the separate Mailing List program for this purpose.
However, if you wish to use the Master Bowlers Database, it is best to enter bowlers under a dummy
league, as then the league code can be used to select only those bowlers.
Note:
The Mailing List program is not connected at all to the Master Bowlers Database or league
bowling, Eg. Birthday Parties, Etc. See: [9] Frequent Bowler Menu from the Main Menu
Master Bowler Fix
Sometimes a bowler may appear twice within the master bowlers database. This may be because the
address was entered in differently or sometime after the bowlers name was entered. The fix program
allows you to join the master bowler records together. It is best to print all current bowlers in alphabetical
order and use this list to assist in fixing duplicate bowlers.
Remove Old Master Bowlers
This option will remove ALL bowlers not registered in any current leagues. Before running this option
you should run the above 'MASTER BOWLER VALIDATION' and 'PRINT PAST BOWLERS'.
You are also provided the option to save the OLD records to a Mailing List Database for later reference &
Mailouts if required.
Master Bowler Database Validation
This option should only be run on the advice of COMPUTER SCORE support staff. It attempts to correct
any faults within the master bowlers database.
Edit League Bowlers Details
This option allows you to edit the details of a bowler within a given league. It is identical to the Edit
League Bowler option in the League Secretarial Menu except that you are allowed to change the master
bowler number. Extreme caution should be taken when changing the master bowler number. It is
advisable that you contact COMPUTER SCORE support staff first.
Clear ATBC Sanction Numbers
This option will clear the Sanction Numbers of ALL master bowlers. The new Sanction numbers can then
be entered through Master Bowler Edit. There is an option to print only Bowlers with or without sanction
numbers within the Print Current Bowlers menu option.
Update Bowler Status
Bowler status and staff follow up dates can quickly be entered for a group of bowlers using this option.
The advanced bowler print options allow you to print any bowlers of a given status code.

Edit League Schedule.
This option allows the editing of scheduled play of any week within the league's season. Do not change
the schedule for weeks that have been played. If you must do so, or prebowls have been recorded for this
week then you will need to run the League Database Validation in the Repair Menu. This applies to all
menu options that may change the schedule.

This option will print all the scheduled rounds for the league indicated in the menu.
Add / Edit A Base League Schedule.
COMPUTER SCORE provides standard ABC approved schedules from 4 to 32 teams. These can be
edited using this option. You can also create a new schedule for any required number of teams. If you
intend running a tournament, create a base schedule first, before creating the tournament Classification.
Print A Base League Schedule.
This option will print an ATBC approved schedule for the selected number of teams.
Edit Scheduled Teams.
This option will examine or edit the scheduled number of teams for each week of the league season. It
can change the number of teams, set a positional round, or alter the number of the last week played. It can
also be used to alter the number of lanes required for any given week. For Example, if lanes are
unavailable, then a 12 team doubles league can be run over 6 or 8 lanes.
Schedule Repair
When working with the schedule, you may end up with a schedule that you are not satisfied with. Use
this option & reprint the schedule. This option rebuilds the unsatisfactory schedule, using the base
schedule, as of that week.
Schedule repair can also be used to change the number of weeks in the season and the style of the
schedule.
This advanced option also allows the operator to align the league’s schedule, round by round, with the
base schedule, round by round, as well as setting the number or weeks per round & total weeks in the
season.
Quit To Main Menu.
Pressing Q will return you to the Master Menu.
Warning: Any changes to a week’s schedule that has Prebowls recorded will require the running of the
League Database Validation in the Repair Menu. As a general rule, if prebowls are recorded
in a league then run the Database Validation after performing any function that may change
the Schedule, including Repair Options such as “Change Number of Teams”. There is no
harm in running the League Database Validation at Anytime.

League Fees
The League Fees software is accessed from the League Fees menu option of the Control Lanes Menu.
The Computer Score League Fees software performs three functions:
1. Enables the progressive addition and analysis of game fees paid by each league.
2. Generate reports detailing the total amount of money received for Game charges and Prize funds for
each league.
3. Enables a league to Pre-pay or Post-pay Games Fees and Prize Fund into their League account at any
time other than on their regular scheduled date.
The league fees software may be operated on different levels, for example where leagues always pay on
the day of play, the system can be setup to skip the additional prompts required for charge accounts, and
automatically allow the transaction at the scheduled time of play.

Upon selecting the League Fees Setup menu item, you are presented with the following screen.

LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-73
Note: The League Transaction gives the total number of games played for the whole league,
and so League Fees for the above example would total $0.60 per person. Therefore it is
best to define a value in the League Fees Setup for the Prize Fund that is divisible by the
number of games in a series. If this is not possible, then set-up the Prize Fund for the
total amount per series and modify the Prize Fund quantity in the League Transaction to
be the total number of players. (In the above example: 20 people @ $0.60 = $12.00)
If the league is a Guaranteed Lineage League, then fill in the Item and Amount fields with the guaranteed
number of games to be paid for (regardless of the number of bowlers who actually play). This quantity
will then be automatically entered when doing a league transaction.
The Other field in the League Fees Setup screen merely gives the capacity to add an additional POS item
number that will be multiplied by the number of bowlers in the league. (for example, Trophy money)
League Charge Accounts
If a league employs the method where all games and prize funds are charged to an account and are then
paid for later, you must create an additional POS item with a Unit type of [B]owling Charge for use as a
Games Charge Account and a POS item with a Unit type of [E]ntry Fund for the Prize Fund Account.
In the above example:
If the charge items are setup, with a Unit Type B for the Games, and a Unit Type E for the Fees, then the
software will offer the following options to finish the League Transaction:
Y
Yes, Charged and Paid for
Game charges and Prize funds are paid on the day of play. (This is the
same as if the League Charge Accounts don’t exist and the
Leagues pay on the day of play)
C
Charge only, to be paid later
Games and Prize fees are charged up and monies will be paid at a later
date. Lineage figures for this League will be included in the day
of play.
P
Payment of Previous Charge Use this option to pay for a previously charged amount.
When the transaction is completed by pressing C Charge only, to be paid later, the money rung up will be
transferred into the Games Charge and Prizes Charge accounts.
When the time comes to actually pay for the games charges, repeat the same procedure and then press P
Payment of Previous Charge when finishing the transaction. In this situation, the amount paid will be
taken from the Games and Prize Charge accounts thus bringing it back to a zero balance.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-74
Paying Out from the Prize Fund Trust
Once the League Fees have been set up and used for some weeks, the prize fund trust accounts will be
accumulating funds that are in effect held in trust by the center on behalf of the league. If the league
wishes to use some or all of this money (say to buy trophies or hold an end on season party) then it must
be paid out using a negative League Transaction from the POS menu of the Control Lanes program.
Important: Performing a Prize Fund Pay Out MUST be done through a League Transaction, specifying
the correct league code. Otherwise the software will not know which league’s trust account
to deduct the pay out amount from. (ie. You cannot do a Prize Fund Pay Out from, say,
Other Transaction in Control Lanes) Nor can you add monies into a trust account from
anywhere other than a League Transaction.
Using the above example, if the THG league wishes to use the $10.00 for whatever reason, you would
have to perform a League Transaction like the following:
From [P]OS, then [2] League Transaction, enter the League Code (THG) and enter the quantity as –1.

Fees Summary Report
This report will print the total amounts and current balances for all leagues for either the Games Fees, or
Prize Funds or both.
Note: After charging up or paying for games and prize funds, the results will not appear until the next
day. This is so these transactions can be edited during the shift, for whatever reason, without fear
of affecting the league fees balances to date.
This report is designed for use by those centers that charge Game Fees and Prize Funds and receive
payment at a different time. Thus the focus of this report is to determine how much is outstanding in the
form of Game Fees and Prizes Charges yet to be paid by Leagues.
Fees League Report
This will give a list of every Game Fees transaction sorted by date for the currently selected league.
Prize Summary Report
This report will list the current balance of the prize funds of all leagues.
The Prize Summary Report tells the operator what is the current amount of money held in trust by the
center for all leagues. Thus the focus of this report is to determine how much the center owes to the
leagues in the form of Prize Funds held in trust.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-75
Prize League Report
This report gives a list of all prize fund monies paid in and out for the currently selected league.
League Fees Validate
This program option will re-organise the League Fees database in the case where there may be data
corruption or League Fees figures in dispute. Should there be a problem with accessing the League Fees
data, this option will also facilitate access to the records.
League Fees Close
This part of the League Fees System will allow you to remove the League Fees transaction history for a
league up to a given date. The purpose of this is to save hard drive space on your computer and to speed
up the printing of reports, as the software does not have to process data that is no longer relevant.
Ensure your POS backups are up to date and that you have printed the league game fees and prize funds
prior to running this option.
It is recommended that the League Fees Close date be sometime after all outstanding league fees have
been paid in, and all prize funds held in trust has been paid out.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-76
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL - TROUBLE
SHOOTING
Most queries in the League Secretarial Package tend to be in relation to calculation of handicaps and points.
The most common causes tend to be :
1)
Changing of scores manually for previous weeks, without reprinting a standing sheet or running a
league audit.
2)
Incorrect use of pre/post team bowling. This feature requires an understanding of how the
computer allocates handicaps according to the rules. Eg. A pre-bowled team match will
automatically upgrade the player(s) average and handicap for the following match, regardless of
the week number sequence.
3)
Incorrect choice of options on the league classification. If out of order team bowling is not
allowed then turn this option off in the league classification.
4)
Incorrect use of carry games or weeks for bowlers. Many operators initially use carry games
where in fact they may have required carry weeks. If carry weeks is chosen, players averages /
handicaps will be recalculated regardless of how many games have been played during those
weeks.
5)
Incorrect use of Adjustment Points and Pins, and opening high game and high series scores, for
both teams and bowlers. This information should be entered only at the initial data input when
setting up the league.
6)
Data corruption. This rarely occurs but in most cases can be reconstructed through the league
database validation, or restored from the floppy backups.
7)
Printing a standing sheet prior to ALL teams completing their bowling on the lanes. When
league games are completed, the control terminal must be in the Lane Control Screen for the
scores to be saved to the League Secretarial Database. A standing sheet must not be printed prior
to all league scoregrids being abandoned from the Lane Monitors. In the event of a standing
sheet being printed prior to all teams ending the match, the schedule will automatically advance
to the next match according to the League Schedule. The correct week can be re-set through
[S]chedule Menu, [2] Schedule Dates and choosing [L]ast Played option: Usually the correct
week number is the one prior to the one indicated.
8)
Duplications in Master Bowlers Records, due to not entering addresses or the entering of
incorrect addresses. This can be corrected using the Master Bowler Fix option in the Repair
Menu, Master Bowlers menu.
If you are intending to make major changes to the structure of the league, especially if you are unsure of the
effects, then it is advisable to copy the league to another code first and work on that one. Then you can copy
it back, if you are satisfied with the changes.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-77
TROUBLE SETTING UP LEAGUES
Obtain the last standing sheet for the league prior to entering data onto the computer. From the Team
Standings section of their standing sheet enter the Team Name, Total Match Points, Total Pinfall (with
handicap) and High Games and High Series. All this information is entered using the 'Define Team
Information' menu option.
1)
Similarly, from the Individual Records section of their league standing sheet enter for each bowler of
the league their Name, Team Number, Total Pinfall, Total Games and High Games & Series. All
this information is entered using the 'Edit League Bowlers' menu option.
You should also print the league schedule and compare with the expected schedule. Make any
changes if required.
Now print the computerised Standing Sheet for this given week and compare with the manual
standing sheet.
2)
After each week of play print the league record sheets for all teams. Compare with the manual recap
sheets filled in on the lanes.
If this is correct , then print the standing sheet. If the games are incorrect or missing use 'Add/Edit
Game Scores' to enter the correct game scores. Should the Handicap be incorrect for any bowler
listed then print the 'Bowlers Record Card' and check that the games and pins are correct for each
week and also that the Adjustment Pins and Adjustment Games for the bowler is also correct.
Should the weeks in play on the Bowlers Record Card be out of order (for example Week 10, Week
12 then Week 11) then one of the weeks has been specified as a deferred match. This can be
corrected by using the 'Define Team Information' menu option and selecting the [D]eferred option
and blanking out the Week played after number.
3)
When the league secretary has completed the manual standing sheet then compare results.
If the points won for the match are different :
Print the league record sheets and compare Won and Lost with manual records. Use 'Add/Edit
Players Game Scores' and check games and if any are specified as forfeits.
If the total points won are different :
If the match points are correct for each week then the total points can only be different if the
Adjustment points for the Team are incorrectly setup in the beginning. Repeat initial setup step (1)
above.
If the total pinfall is incorrect:
Check initial setup of team adjustment points. Otherwise, print a 'Team Record Card' and determine
which week the points begin to differ. It may be because of Vacancy Scores and Blind Scores not
being included in the Team Total Points or that the manual system is based on Scratch Points rather
than handicap. Change the League Classification option to suit the way the League calculates Team
Total Pinfall.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-78
Team Leaders and/or Star Bowlers incorrect:
The most likely reason is that the High Game and Series scores were not entered for all teams and
bowlers of the League. Remember, the option 'win both scratch and handicap' in the League
Classification should a bowler be winning both.
Individual Records on the Standing Sheet:
Incorrect Games or Total Pins :
Check that the adjustment points and Pinfall for that bowler is correct as of the last manual standing
sheet. Print the Bowlers Record Card and check that the games and pinfall is correct for each week.
Also check that the week numbers are consecutive in case of a deferred match play as in (2) above.
Incorrect Average and/or Handicap:
This can only be incorrect if the Games or Total Pins above are incorrect. Follow the above
procedure.
It is suggested that you do not provide the league with computerised standing sheets until at least three weeks
of scores have been entered correctly. Begin entering the information into the computer from the manually
maintained records for several weeks. When you feel confident that it is setup correctly then begin to provide
the standing sheets to your league secretaries.
TROUBLE IN HANDICAPS AND POINT CALCULATIONS
Handicaps not calculating as expected:
(1)
Print Bowlers Record Card and check for any deferred matches. Correct if necessary.
(2)
The usual problem is that the Carry games or Carry weeks is incorrectly entered and the carry
average remains as the current average.
(3)
Check the setup in Edit a League classification for handicap calculation base and percentage.
Handicaps not calculating after week 3:
(1)
Some leagues calculate their first working average after week 3, or after 9 games (for 3 game series).
These are not equivalent, as a bowler with blind scores may not have played the 9 games at the end
of week 3. Check carry games and weeks.
Current handicap incorrect after deferred match played:
(1)
Must run Audit League Records or Print League Standing Sheet if deferred match recently played.
Points on standing sheet differs from record sheets:
This occurs if a bowler in the team has not been allocated a carry average, or no carry games/weeks have
been specified. Print League Bowlers and look at the Carry Average column and correct all bowlers without
a carry average. This can be done using Edit Existing Bowlers or Display Bowlers.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-79
Points allocated not as expected:
(1)
Check carry averages as above.
(2)
Check handicaps of players.
(3)
Playing against a forfeit.
(4)
Adjustment points & games.
(5)
Check Bonus points.
(6)
League classification setup.
(7)
Check misses.
Incorrect handicaps when printing league record sheets:
Run Audit League Records. Required if changes made to scores of any previous week, or a deferred match
was recently played.
TROUBLE IN STANDING SHEETS
High Game scores incorrect for bowlers or teams:
Check the opening high game scores for teams in the Define Team Information option. Check the high game
scores for bowlers in the second screen of the Edit Existing Bowlers option.
Need to change the number of bowlers in a team:
This field cannot be altered after the league has commenced play. It can be changed before week one is
played. The Initialise League from Another League option in the backup menu can copy the league data to a
league with a modified classification.
Head to head scratch point system for a HCP League:
This is unusual but can be achieved by having team head to head point scoring off, and enabling Individual
scratch head to head and specifying that this is to be included into team scoring.
Bowlers missing in Team list on standing sheet:
Check team numbers for all bowlers.
A bowler has more games than expected for a given week:
(1)
Often extra games have been entered using the RR team number facility in Add/edit a player's games
scores.
(2)
Print Bowlers Record Cards and check deferred matches.
LEAGUE SECRETARIAL
E-80
TROUBLE IN SCHEDULE
Schedule incorrect after changing the number of teams:
This may occur when the number of teams have been decreased twice. When the initial structure changes
significantly, the computer may not be able to produce a correct schedule. Use Edit League Schedule to
correct.
Schedule has incorrect team numbers:
(1)
This may be due to extending the league, or changing the number of teams. Correct the schedule. If
you have changed the schedule for weeks already played, then it is essential that a League Database
Validation be done, to link existing game scores to the altered schedule.

'BAD BOWLER LINKAGE' message appears when Editing Bowlers:
This occurs when a League Bowler does not link to his Master Bowler record correctly. It will also occur
when a Bowler belongs to more than 9 leagues. It is best to contact Computer Score staff to correct this
fault. Alternatively, attempt a League Database Validation and a Master Bowlers Database Validation.

The printed footer eg. "Printed Wednesday 20th November 1998" prints on the top of the next page.
If these problems exist, firstly check the length of the paper you are using. It should measure 11 inches or
280 mm. If the paper size is correct, carry out the following procedure to adjust this setting: Note: Some
printers have a pause light in place on an On Line light. In these printers, the light has the opposite meaning.
(On Line Light On = Pause Light Off) EPSON printers can be adjusted as follows:
(1)
(ON LINE) - Off (No green light).
(2)
(LOAD/EJECT) - Paper returns to the tractor feed.
(3)
(ON LINE) - On (Green light flashing).
Paper loads incorrectly - too far forward.
Adjust this length by holding down the (LINE FEED). Stop when the paper returns to level with the
top of the ribbon guide. If you go too far press the (FORM FEED) to adjust the paper up.

TROUBLE BACKING UP AND RESTORING LEAGUE DATA
League data has been deleted. For example, by ending league season by accident:
Use Restore from Hard Disk Daily Backup or Restore from Hard Disk Weekly Backup or Restore from
floppy disk depending on which has the last correct data. Cannot use daily backup if machine has been
rebooted or switched off since deleting data.
When backing up to floppy disk, a disk error message appears:
The usual reason for this is that the floppy disk is bad or unformatted. Re-format disk and retry backup. If
disk format fails check that the disk is a DOUBLE SIDED HIGH DENSITY disk.

Chapter F
PRO SHOP INVENTORY
GETTING STARTED
The PRO SHOP Inventory module has been designed to enable management to keep track of Pro Shop
items such as balls, bags and shoes. This module ensures that when stock is sold at the Point of Sale that it
must be recorded as either sold or on lay-by.
To achieve this every item in the Pro Shop must have a unique stock or serial number. It is recommended
that you purchase a roll of pre-printed sticky labels consecutively numbered from 1000 (or even 10000). It
is best to maintain the same number of digits for all stock numbers.
Before you can use the software you must perform a stock take of all Pro Shop stock, numbering the stock
as you go. It is recommended that you use the one number series for all stock types. For example, a ball
may be number 10001, then a bag is 10002, a pair of shoes could be 10003. If you wish to separate the
number series for different types of stock then you could use 10001..19999 for balls, 20001..29999 for
bags and 30001..39999 for shoes.
If you already have your stock numbered and do not wish to renumber them, then stock can be entered
with gaps in the numbering system (eg ball 10005 has been sold , so do not enter it). However, you cannot
have the same number appearing twice even if they are different stock types (eg. Ball 10001, and Shoes
10001 would not be permitted).
You do not have to bring all stock types on line at once. For example, you could do a stock take of all
balls, and then 'enable' the Point of Sale for Pro Shop Ball Sales. 1 week later do the same for bags, then
the following week for shoes. You cannot however, 'enable' the Point of Sale for Ball Sales unless ALL
balls have been numbered.
You would already have Pro Shop items such as Ball Sales, Bag Sales and Shoe Sales in your Point of
Sale Item List. You must enter an 'I' for inventory as the unit type for these items. This 'enables' the Point
of Sale into the Pro Shop Inventory mode, so that the operator is asked for the stock number when selling
Pro Shop items.
All current lay-bys must be entered OR maintained manually. This will be described later.

PRO SHOP - WORKBOOK
This workbook will concentrate on Pro Shop transactions. The reference guide explains in full how to
setup the Pro Shop and how to enter your existing stock. You may wish to read the Reference Guide first.
Exercise 1
Ball Sale
A league bowler has chosen a ball and wishes to pay for it.
From the control screen press O for Other Transaction
The screen will change to the transaction screen. With the cursor in the Quantity column check your
keyboard and make sure the Num Lock light is on. If not press Num_Lock key. From the numeric pad
on the right of your keyboard:
Type 1 for the sale of 1 ball then press Enter .
Type 27 for ball sales then press Enter .
Your item number may be different. To locate your item number , pressing Page_Down you will sight
all the items in your operation, in numeric order, page by page.
You will now be asked for the Pro Shop stock number. This should be on a sticky label on the ball. Type
this in and press Enter. The actual ball description and the recommended retail price will now display.
Your top line should read:
QTY

Your cursor will now be on the Price field. You may overwrite this should a discount be provided. You
may then continue to add in any other purchases made. Discounts can be entered using a discount item.
(See POS Item Setup in the Point of Sale Manual)
Now let's complete this transaction. The cursor should now be at the start of the next line. The last line of
the help prompt reads - Leave quantity blank to complete this transaction.
Press Enter The cursor has now moved to the amount tendered.
From the numeric pad press 150 then Enter . You will notice there was NO need to include the
decimal point and 00 for cents.
The change has been calculated as 25 dollars and you are prompted to press Enter to continue. When
you press Enter the drawer will open and the sale can now be completed by either closing the till drawer
or pressing Enter . The screen will return to the control screen.

Exercise 2
Ball to be put on lay-by. (Lay Away)
A league bowler has chosen a ball and wishes to lay-by it.
From the control screen press P for Point of Sale, 3 for Lay-by and Lockers, then L for Lay-by. A
shortcut is to just press L from the control screen.
The screen will change to the Lay-by screen listing all Pro Shop stock on Lay-by. Type in the stock
number of the item to Lay-by. As this is the first instalment you will be asked to put the ball on hold.
Answer Y and the Pro Shop stock screen will display showing the details of the ball selected including the
Retail Price.
At this point you will be requested to type in the bowlers Last and First names. Generally the bowler is a
league bowler and is already in the Master Bowlers Database, so that the full address and phone number
will automatically appear. If the bowler is not a league bowler, then you asked to enter the bowlers' name
and address.
When the bowler has been selected a prompt 'Are the above details correct' will appear. If anything need
changing (such as Retail Price because the ball has been discounted) then answer N and correct,
otherwise answer Y.
The Lay-by instalment screen will now appear. Type in the amount of the first instalment or deposit. You
will be given the option at this stage to print a receipt.
If there are a number of items to be put on Lay-by, then they must be entered separately just as though
they are different transactions. This is also the case when instalments are made. If a bowler has purchased
both ball and shoes you may find it easier to put both on hold (as in the next example), then transact all
instalments against the ball until fully paid off, then subsequent instalments cane be made for the shoes.
This is simpler than trying to apportion instalments to both ball and shoes.
Exercise 3
Ball to be put on hold.
A league bowler has chosen a ball and wishes to have it put aside until pay day.
The procedure is the same as the above, except that the amount of the first instalment is 0.00
Exercise 4
Instalment to be made for a ball on Lay-by.
From the control screen press L for Lay-by.
The screen will change to the Lay-by screen listing all Pro Shop stock on Lay-by including the name and
address of the bowler. Locate and type in the stock number of the item on Lay-by.
The Lay-by instalment screen will now appear. Type in the amount of this instalment. You will be given
the option at this stage to print a receipt. If this is the last instalment the ball will automatically be taken
off the Lay-by list.

Exercise 5
Ball Sale with the recording of the bowlers details.
A league bowler has chosen a ball and wishes to pay for it. If your centre wishes to record the bowlers'
name and address then it can be transacted as a Lay-by where the first instalment is the total amount to be
paid.
Exercise 6

Bowler does not wish to continue with purchase of
A ball was put on hold for a bowler who no longer wishes to purchase that ball.
Case 1:
Case 2:
Case 3:
The ball was put on hold but no amount paid. Select the Pro Shop Stock edit screen. Type
in the Stock number and press H for hold. You will then be asked to remove the hold.
Where a deposit or instalment was made (but not paid in full) then enter a credit instalment
for the amount paid to date. For example, if $25 paid enter -25 as the amount of the
instalment. You will then be asked if you wish to remove the hold status.
Where the ball has been paid in full. Select Other transaction and enter -1 as the quantity
purchased. Type in the Ball Sales item number, then the Stock number of the ball. The
amount paid for the ball will appear in the price, and the total amount will display a full
refund.
In all the above cases the ball will automatically be returned to stock. If the item cannot be resold, delete it
from stock from the Edit Pro Shop option.
To return the item to stock a FULL refund must be transacted. Should you not wish to provide a full
refund, then make a new transaction for the amount to be held back.

GAMES PACKAGE
OVERVIEW
The Games Package software has been designed as a promotional package to complement the
Computer Score Animated Graphics software.
It offers the Operator a unique and most effective tool to excite bowlers, maintain
their interest, and enhance the opportunity for increased income.
You have the ability to design the display according to your needs, as well as controlling the
frequency of the display and the value of each winning combination.
Casino Bowling consists of nine tiles, depicting various symbols, appearing on the overhead
monitor screens and over top of the score grid.
The nine tiles appear in three rows of three, and the significant result is on the centre line, which
has to match a predetermined combination of symbols before a prize can be won.
The screen presentation involves the nine tiles either spinning vertically in a combination of three
reels, or turning, or sliding, and the action is chosen by the operator, however the spinning action (in three
reels) may be approved in some States only. This limitation may be imposed by specific legislation
pertaining to this particular type of display or promotion for your area.
The Games Package Menu offers the Operator a freedom of choice as to:
(1)
Which individual Lanes are activated for the display.
(2)
What type of Bowling Game will be activated for the display (Open Play, Tournament or League
Games).
(3)
Pre-set up to nine various combinations, with varying degrees of frequency, selected by a choice of
five options for each combination.
(4)
Estimate the approximate cost of the promotion, by choosing a monetary value for each of the ten
possible outcomes.
(5)
What text is printed on the receipt, to validate the prize offered for each winning combination.
(6)
Print a Daily Report indicating all details of each winning combination, and Value Vouchers
issued.
(7)
Print a Daily Report indicating all details of those vouchers returned for prize redemption, and
those outstanding.
The Games Package offers the Operator a unique promotion of the Tenpin Bowling Game, with the
flexibility of "changing the rules" at any time.
NOTE: Different States have varying Gaming Laws.
It is the centre’s responsibility to ensure that the operation of the Games package
complies with all relevant legislation.
GAMES PACKAGE
G-1
Marketing
Games Package is designed as a promotional tool, aimed to increase Open Play, as well as maintaining
player excitement in the ranks of League and Tournament Bowlers.
It offers the Operator an opportunity to add perceived value to the game, and a decision should be made
whether:
[a]
[b]
The price of any Promotional Game is to be the same as Open Play (In which case, the reward /
prize for a win should be small)
The price of any Promotional Game is to be higher than Open Play (In which case, the amount of
game price increase should be reflected in the value of the reward / prize for a win). Note: Having
a higher price for any of the Games offered in the Games Package may be deemed as gambling
and so be illegal in many States. It is not advised that there be a charge associated with any of the
games in the Games Package.
Note: It is suggested that a separate Item be created in your POS Item Setup, enabling the POS Reports
to indicate actual results of Games Package promotions.
It is perceived that this promotional aid could be utilised in the following ways :
1) Advertise New Games for Open Play during regular “down-time”
• In-Center promotions with brochures, fliers, notices, announcements, as well as advertising the
rewards or prizes through displays.
• Outside promotions, with brochures etc., targeting Senior Citizen Clubs and similar
organisations, as well as the general public.
• Word-of-mouth to known “Bingo” players, as an alternative to their favourite pastime.
• Schedule Games Parties for children’s birthday parties, or as a pleasant change to your regular
“Saturday / Sunday Night” promotions.
2) Form Promotional Leagues of 2-game series from Senior Citizens and young Juniors.
• Many people in these two categories may have physical limitations in enduring more than 2
games, and would welcome such a format.
3) Offer the Games Package to existing Leagues, as “added value” to their commitment.
• Charge the League no more for their game fees, and offer low-value prizes.
• Charge the League a little extra for game fees, and offer better prizes, or higher value Vouchers.
4) Use the Games Package sparingly
• This avoids the Games Package from “going Stale” and losing its effectiveness over time.
Note: Choose your leagues carefully for number 3, as some “higher average” bowlers may not be keen to
shoot for “Bingo” instead of “score”.
GAMES PACKAGE
G-2
Rewards / Prizes
The simplest method of providing an immediate reward for Games Package winners would be by
utilising the Computer Score Value Vouchers, which can be paid over the Control Counter, and can be
redeemed for games or merchandise in your Center only.
The Value Vouchers provide the added benefits of being compatible with all current Computer
Score Graphic Software Packages, as well as having their own auditing, reconciliation and reporting
facilities.
Alternatively, other prizes may be offered for Games Package wins, as long as they are advertised
prominently in the Center, or they are specified to the customer prior to commencing the game.

A number of exercises are set out later in this manual, however it is important to first read through
the following 6 Sections, to have an understanding of the available options prior to setting them up.
Choosing a Title for each of the Eight Games
The Title of each of the 8 Games should be chosen to help you identify the type of game, (eg.
Open Play, Tournament or League) as well as specify the degree of difficulty.
Note: A Title need not necessarily be assigned to each Game number - they can be identified simply as
Game 1, Game 2, etc.
You may wish to target the Open Play area of your business in particular, so you may setup the
first 5 or 6 Games for this type of game, for example: Open Play Easy, Open Play Average, Open Play
Hard, as well as Birthday Party, or even Bumper Bowling.
To cater for your league bowlers, you may setup one or two Games (for example, League Easy and
League Hard) and you could also setup a “Tournament Game” for anytime you may wish to run Casino
Bowling during a tournament.
These chosen titles can be changed or replaced at any time, by overwriting.
Hint: In specifying the degree of difficulty (Easy, Average, Hard, or Other) remember that the 10
winning combinations have a combined probability of occurring only 1340 times in every 8000
spins, or once every six appearances.

Choosing the Style of the Graphic Display
There are four different ways in which the nine tiles appear on the screen. The various styles can
be changed at any time, to maintain customer excitement, but one of the following numbers must always
be displayed in the “Style” column on the Casino [G]ames setup screen (Table 2).
0. Spinning Casino Reels - the 9 tiles scroll down vertically in three columns similar to a Slot Machine.
1. Sliding Tiles - the 9 tiles appear at random from the edges of the Casino Bowling frame, and slide into
the nine spaces, also at random.
This display is reasonably slow, and would prove very effective for Open Play.
2. Quick Tiles - the 9 tiles appear at random in a scrolling action, from top to bottom, in each of the nine
spaces.
This display is very fast, and may be suitable for League/Tournament games.
3. Swiping Tiles - the 9 tiles appear at random in a sweeping action, from right to left, in each of the nine
spaces.
This display is also fairly quick, and could also be suitable for League games.
4. Turning Tiles - the 9 tiles appear at random, and turn (or pivot) onto themselves, in each of the nine
spaces.
This display is slower than (2) and (3) and could be used for Open Play
5. All the above - Random selection of the above formats
Note: The “Spinning Reel” display may or may not be legal to be displayed, depending on the your
State’s gaming laws. It is the manager’s responsibility to ensure that the law is complied with.
Choosing the Frequency of the Display
The Casino Bowling graphics display can be setup to appear a chosen number of times during the
course of one game, as well as for various scoring achievements by the bowler.
Table 2 offers four columns to be utilised for this purpose, and your choice can be setup by
entering [Y]es in any one or more of the five choices:
Randoms
A number in this column will activate the Casino Bowling display to appear as many times
as the chosen number at random per game per player.
Spare
A [Y] in this column will activate the display to appear after every spare. The display will
replace the “Spare” graphic.
Strike
A [Y] in this column will activate the display to appear after every strike. The display will
replace the “Strike” graphic.
Turkey
A [Y] in this column will activate the display to appear after three or more consecutive
strikes. The display will replace the “Turkey” and “Bagger” graphics.
GAMES PACKAGE
G-5
The frequency of the Casino Bowling display can therefore be regulated by the number of times
[Y] is entered in the four columns for each of the eight pre-set games.
Some thought should be given to the desired result prior to setting up the “Casino Games” screen
(Table 2) as it would be advisable to retain a specific Game setup for a period of time before changing it too frequent setup changes may confuse both staff and bowlers. The final choice ultimately rests with the
Management.

The ten possible winning outcomes are factory set and are listed above, also the frequency of their
display based on every 8000 spins.
The Casino Value Voucher Setup is designed purely to assist the operator get a feel for how much
will be won per 8000 spins. It has no impact whatsoever to any of the Point of Sale program or any other
part of the Computer Score system.
Note: The laws of probability are in effect for this system which means that if a 1/8000 prize is won,
there is nothing to stop a 1/8000 prize being won on the very next spin. The final number of
outcomes for any one prize is based on the statistical probability of that prize, not what has been
previously won.
The value of each winning combination must be defined, to conclude the full setup of Casino
Bowling, and the individual values are chosen entirely by the Operator. They must be entered in the
appropriate Value column in the CASINO VALUE screen option (Table 3).
GAMES PACKAGE
G-6
When choosing these values, some consideration should be given to the following points:
1. The approximate number of winning combinations compared to number of spins is roughly
ONE in SIX.
2. Particularly in Open Play mode, it would be desirable to setup Casino Bowling to appear as
frequently as possible, because the expectation of a win is far more important than the prize.
3. If the frequency of spins is increased, then the value of each winning combination should be
low (and vice-versa).
Note: It is important to state, however, that the values in this manual are merely a suggestion, and have
been quoted for the Operator’s guidance only.
The values of winning combinations will also be affected by the type of prizes you have in mind:
they may consist of “Give-Aways” from your Centre, or from related sponsors, or they may be specially
designed, in the form of “Value Vouchers” or some other type of “Bowling Centre Currency”, or a
combination of any of these.
Setting up the Receipt Description
The Casino Bowling package includes a Journal Printer, which prints out a “receipt” or record of
all winning combinations, indicating the following:
Date
Time
Lane Number
Bowler’s Name
Winning Combination
plus a Detailed Description of the Prize
This detailed description needs to be defined in the CASINO VALUE screen
To setup the Casino Values, access the Casino Bowling Menu through the [U]tility Menu, then
Option [1] Automatic Scoring.
Choose the [G]ames setup, and then [S]etup Casino Game, and Prize [V]alue setup, which will
display the Casino Value Voucher Setup as above.
Note: The “Value” of each winning combination need not be entered, but the Receipt Description must
be defined, for the purpose of displaying the actual “prize” won by the bowler
Press [C]hange setup, and proceed to enter your choice of Values for each of the winning combinations.
You will notice that the $ TOTAL column will display the calculated total value of each winning
combination, based on the estimated number of occurrences.
When all ten values are entered, the estimated total value for all 8000 spins will also be displayed.
For this estimation to be calculated when using “Value Vouchers” or other prizes, these rewards
must be related to a $ value.
(For example: 1 unit “Value Voucher” = $0.50c)
GAMES PACKAGE
G-7
Whilst in the [C]hange mode, the Receipt Description must be completed. This area will define
the text appearing on the printed receipt, and should therefore indicate exactly the prize being offered for
each “win”.
The receipt is designed to be held by Management, allowing the Operator to physically balance
total prizes “paid out” with receipts printed.

BINGO BOWLING
Overview
Bingo Bowling is a promotional game, designed to provide a secondary result to the normal game,
and creating an opportunity for a bowler to win prizes.
It consists of a graphic screen depicting nine tiles, with scores between 3 and X and being
displayed on the scoregrid during the normal progression of a game.
The main purpose of Bingo Bowling is to allow the player (Open, League or Tournament Games)
to complete the card by matching the result of the first ball of any frame with the nine scores generated by
the computer, within a two-game series.
Game Structure
The 9 - tile Bingo Card is computer-generated, and chosen at random from 15 various
combinations. These are based on possible outcomes after the first ball of each frame is bowled, between
a 3-count and a Strike.
To make the game more interesting, and at the same time allow for differences in bowler skills,
three levels of difficulty have been devised (Easy, Medium, and Hard) with a choice of five different card
combinations for each one.
This structure offers the Operator the choice of setting up Bingo Bowling for either Open Play,
League or Tournament Games, for any lane, and allow the computer to choose a card combination at
random, according to the predetermined level.
The Bingo Card will appear automatically after the next bowler is indicated, and display each
player’s required 1st ball scores, which need to be matched within the next two games for a win. The card
will remain on the screen for a few seconds, and then allow the player’s 1st ball score to be displayed; - if
a “match” is made, the Bingo Card will reappear, and the corresponding number will be “crossed out”,
just like a normal Bingo game.
Each time the Bingo Card is displayed on the screen, it will indicate the current status of the Bingo
Game, that is, all the scores that have been “matched” will be shown “crossed out”.
Each bowler in the line-up is able to recall his or her Bingo Card to the screen before bowling the
first ball, by pressing [B] on the keypad.
To win at Bingo Bowling, a player must match all 9 scores displayed on the card with the first
ball score of two consecutive games. In a multiple-game situation, Bingo Bowling will apply to the first
two games bowled in a series.

Which Lane(s) are to be used,
Whether Open, League or Tournament play,
If League or Tournament, choose from [E]asy, [M]edium, [H]ard or [B]ingo instructing
the program to randomise from the 15 various card combinations. This last choice is setup
from the League or Tournament Classification.
Choices for [a] and [b] are entered by access to the [S]etup option in the [C]ontrol Lanes Menu.
From the Automatic Scoring setup screen, choose [G]ames, and the following screen will be displayed :

This same screen is also used for the initial lane setup for the rest of the Games Package, however,
in the case of Bingo Bowling, only the following simple steps are necessary:
1. Decide which type of game is to be utilised for Bingo Bowling (Open, League, or Tournament).
2. If Open Play, simply enter [B] in any lane(s) allocated to Bingo Bowling - this will activate the
Bingo Cards for the chosen lane(s) and the card numbers will be generated at random from 15
possible combinations.
3. If League or Tournament Play, you have a further choice of Easy, Medium, Hard and Bingo,
and your choice will be accepted by the entry of the letters [E], [M], [H], or [B] in the Casino
Bowling line of the League / Tournament Classification.
This will activate the Bingo Cards for the chosen League lanes, and the card numbers will be
generated from pre-selected groups of 5 card combinations, according to their perceived difficulty.
GAMES PACKAGE
G-13
If [B] is chosen, the card display will be randomly chosen from the full 15 combinations, as in the
case of Open Play.
The description that is printed on the receipt upon winning is setup in the [G]ames Setup, [S]etup Casino
Game. The Value Voucher prize for the Winner is also setup from this screen.
RED PIN GAME
This graphic package replaces the “Red Pin in the Machine” promotion, whereby the bowler can win a
prize if a strike is bowled whenever the red pin appears in the No. 1 position. (Head Pin)
Red Pin Game creates a computer-generated picture on screen, displayed on an average of once
per ten frames (about the same frequency as the pinspotter would create). This action is based on a 1/10
probability and does not necessarily occur exactly once every ten frames. This probability can be changed
by the operator. (See Below)
The display consists of a pindeck showing nine white pins and a RED headpin, which then
enlarges to the full screen size and flashes.
The next screen message explains that the bowler needs to bowl a strike to win a prize.
If a strike is bowled, the screen shows the full pindeck with a red pin in the No.1 position, with a
ball heading towards the pocket, going through the pindeck, and all ten pins scattering in a strike, with the
words “RED PIN WINNER” over top and flashing.
The next screen shows Roscoe with gift-wrapped boxes, and the words “Claim Your Prize at the
Counter”.
At the same time, the Receipt Printer on the Control Desk will print : the lane number, the name
of the bowler, the date and time, and the words: “Red Pin Winner” as well as the pre-determined prize.
The Control staff therefore do not even have to be aware of what is happening on the lanes - just remove
the receipt from the printer and “make a fuss” about presenting the prize.
Setting up the Red Pin Game
Red Pin Game can be activated for ANY LANE, at ANY TIME, through the Lane Control [S]etup
Screen, and [G]ames option, OR through [U]tility Menu, [1] Automatic Scoring sub-menu, and [G]ames
option.
By following the instructions, the letter [R] is entered for the chosen lane, and the chosen Game
Type (Open Play, League or Tournament Play), then Control_W will save the setup and activate the
game.
Note: Red Pin Game may be setup automatically for any League, by entering [R] in
item [5] Casino Bowling on the third screen of the League Classification.
The description that is printed on the receipt upon winning is setup in the [G]ames Setup, [S]etup Casino
Game, Prize [V]alue Setup. The Value Voucher prize for the Winner is also setup from this screen along
with how many times on average the Red Pin Game will appear per game.
GAMES PACKAGE
G-14
PICK-A-CARD GAME
The concept of the Pick-A-Card game is to provide the bowler with an opportunity to win a prize,
by selecting just ONE of THREE cards displayed on the screen, and giving the player the option to choose
the winning card.
The game consists of the backs of three cards being displayed on the screen, and shuffling
themselves several times. After being shuffled, they stop, and the numbers [1], [2] and [3] appear below
each card, prompting for the bowler to select a number.
This required interaction involves the player more in the “decision making”, and adds to the
interest of the game.
As soon as the choice is made, the chosen card will turn around, and display either “You Win” or
“Try Again” (just like the old “Pea in the Nutshell” trick) thus giving the player an immediate result,
based on his / her choice.
IF IT’S A WIN, the screen will show Roscoe with gift-wrapped boxes, and the words “Claim
Your Prize at the Counter”.
At the same time, the Receipt Printer on the Control Desk will print : the lane number, the name
of the bowler, the date and time, and the words: “Pick-A-Card Winner” as well as the pre-determined
prize. The Control staff therefore do not even have to be aware of what is happening on the lanes - just
remove the receipt from the printer and “make a fuss” about presenting the prize.
IF IT IS NOT A WIN, the winning card will actually turn, and indicate where the prize was, so
that the bowler does not feel cheated.
Note: There is a simple 1/3 probability of any card being a winner.
Setting up Pick-A-Card Game
Pick-A-Card Game is setup through the Lane Control [S]etup Screen, [G]ames option, and
[S]etup Casino Game, OR through [ U ]tility Menu, [1] Automatic Scoring sub-menu, [G]ames option,
and [S]etup Casino Game.
The number of times for the display to appear during each game, is determined by entering the
desired number in the “Randoms” column, or for each “Spare, Strike, or Turkey” if required.
Once setup, Pick-A-Card Game is activated for ANY LANE, at ANY TIME, through the [G]ames
option screen, with the letter [P] being entered for the chosen lane, and the chosen Game Type (Open
Play, League or Tournament Play), then “Control W” will save the setup and activate the game.
Note: Pick-A-Card Game may be setup automatically for any League, by entering [P] in
item [5] Casino Bowling on the third screen of the League Classification.
The description that is printed on the receipt upon winning is setup in the [G]ames Setup, [S]etup Casino
Game. The Value Voucher prize for the Winner is also setup from this screen.

THE 11-FRAME GAME
This game is designed for the more serious Open Bowler, or perhaps be used as an alternative
tournament fun-format, offering the player an opportunity to improve the score after the game has been
completed.
11-Frame Game allows each player to cancel ANY ONE FRAME SCORE (between frame 1 and
9) and re-bowl that frame, to try and achieve a better pinfall for the game.
All players in the line-up bowl their full game, and when all bowlers have completed the 10th
frame, the screen changes to a full 10-Frame Grid, and displays the message: “You Are Now Entering
The 11th Frame” and then “Select Frame 1 - 9 to Re-bowl” for each bowler in the line-up.
The selected frame is then blanked out, allowing the player to re-bowl it. The new result is
then entered, and the game total score changes accordingly.
The 11-Frame Game can be activated for ANY LANE, at ANY TIME, through the Lane Control
[S]etup Screen, and [G]ames option, OR through [U]tility Menu, [1] Automatic Scoring sub-menu, and
[G]ames option.
By following the instructions, the letter [F] is entered for the chosen lane, and the chosen Game
Type (Open Play, League or Tournament Play), then Ctrl_W will save the setup and activate the game.
Note : The 11-Frame Game may be setup automatically for any League, by entering [F] in item [5]

displays per game, and
may happen additionally depending on the bowlers’ ability.
Step 1.4
Now press Control_W and [Q]uit
EXERCISE 2: Making Open Play Casino Harder
Operator wishes to retain the “Open Play Easy” setup, but needs to make available a slightly more
difficult setup to cater for teenagers, or slightly better bowlers.

If the desired Games Package Game does not start for any one League, the most common reason is that
the Game has not been specified in that League’s Classification. This is set on the third page of the
Classification under Casino Bowling or Games Package. The options are:
0
No Games for that League
1- 8 Casino Game between 1 and 8
F
The 11 Frame Game
R
Red Pin
P
Pick - A - Card
B
Bingo Bowling with the Card chosen at random
E
Bingo Bowling with an Easy Class card chosen
M
Bingo Bowling with a Medium Class card chosen
H
Bingo Bowling with a Hard Class card chosen
G
To use the Games as specified in the League line of the Setup screen in Control
Lanes
If a G is set in the Classification and the Game does not start when it should, then check that the correct
game is specified in the League Line of the Games Setup. This is accessed from Control Lanes screen by
pressing [G]ames. Please check that [N]o has not been entered in this line as this has been designed to
override all Classifications.
Note: The Games Package must be set in the Classification before starting Competition Play.
If the League has been started first, set the right Game in the Classification and Abandon
the Lanes with [N]o for Save and restart the League.
An undesired Game starts with a League
The Classification for this League includes a Games Package Game that is not desired. This should be
changed in the Classification to stop it happening again. However, to avoid doing this while the League is
Bowling, change the League Line of the Games Setup to [N]o. This will override all Classifications to
stop any Game from being played and can be done straight away while Bowling continues without the
need to Abandon and Recover. Remember to change the Classification at a convenient time and set the
League line of the Games Setup to its original setting when the League has finished.
Only Casino Bowling and Pick-A-Card appear
The only Casino Bowling and not the full Games package has been enabled in General Parameters. See
your Computer Score Support Staff for more details.
Disputed Result
If a bowler for some reason disputes the result of a Game by the system, then the result can be checked by
pressing X in Control Lanes. For Casino Bowling, all results are listed, with Casino Bowling Wins
appearing highlighted. For the rest of the Games package, all wins only are displayed and are
highlighted.

Chapter H
FREQUENT BOWLER CLUB
GETTING STARTED
The Frequent Bowler Club package is a promotional tool designed to encourage bowlers to attend
more regularly, through various incentives and recognition.
It allows the Centre to record Bowler Details (Single Member, Family, or Social Group of up to 7
individuals) and creates a Membership Database, offering various reports, with the following selections :
[1] Alphabetical
[2] Zip/Postcode Range
[3] Average
[4] Birthday
[5] New Membership
[6] Low Use Members
[7] High Use members
[8] Past Members
The package provides Management with the opportunity to form a “Frequent Bowler Club” and
use the data to promote Club Tournaments or other promotional events, as well as offer discounted game
rates for members .
The term “Frequent Bowler” is easily recognisable by the public, but should not be limited to the
Open Play market, instead, cover the full range of tenpin bowling customers.
This promotional package is perceived to create a “Club” atmosphere, to attract casual bowlers,
family and social groups, as well as regular league bowlers. The Club would operate ideally on weekends
or “down-time” periods, offering a friendly atmosphere, rewards for increased attendance, exciting
promotions and perhaps discounted game prices at suitable times.
Aims
The aims of the Frequent Bowler Club System is to:
(A)
Increase lineage and profitability. For example, attract members with club events,
offering fun formats, prizes unrelated to ability or score, lower game prices in poor
lineage periods, and generally ensuring that Frequent Bowler Club members are
happy enough to return again soon.
FREQUENT BOWLER CLUB
H-1
(B)
Provide a database of bowlers who do not bowl in league or tournament. This
mailing list could be used to maintain consistency in Club attendance, as well as
exposing members to other center activities through a Club Newsletter, or similar
circular.
(C)
Provide a core of potential new league and tournament bowlers. Interested members
could be encouraged to join leagues and tournaments (perhaps Family Leagues), after
experiencing their own Club events. However, frequent bowler should be seen as a
new untapped market, not a gateway for increased League participation.
League bowling is popular not only for the competitive and sporting angle, but also because it
provides a meeting place with a comfortable atmosphere, and the prospect of making new friends.
Not all bowlers however, can commit themselves financially or to the regularity of league
bowling, but still look for the friendly atmosphere and fun. This is what the
Frequent Bowler Club concept is aimed to provide.
Marketing
A successful Frequent Bowler Club is perceived to rely on two factors:
(A)
(B)
A friendly atmosphere, and a sense of generated fun.
Value for money.
The following points are merely suggestions, as the marketing and operation of the Frequent
Bowler Club system rests ultimately with the Operator.
*
*
*
*
*
*
In-Center advertising and promotional information should be displayed.
A range of prizes or a list of items could be displayed prominently, indicating their redeemable
equivalent in Value Vouchers.
If special times are allocated for Frequent Bowler Club, Control Staff should explain Club benefits
to all customers attending at those times.
If a League Practice discounted rate is offered to league bowlers, it may be of advantage to
discontinue this rate, and replace it with a Frequent Bowler Club special rate. This will encourage
league bowlers to join the Club.
Advertise a special “Introductory Offer” for the first 100 or 200 members.
Encourage members to introduce new members, with these benefits:
1. A reward of 3 complimentary games (or the equivalent in “Value Vouchers” see below) for
each new member introduced.
2. Allow the members to “loan” their membership card to friends, so that:
(a) The friend benefits by cheaper game rate.
(b) The member benefits by receiving “Value Vouchers”.
(c) The center increases lineage, plus the opportunity of converting a new bowler to a
Frequent Bowler Club member.
FREQUENT BOWLER CLUB

*
*
Encourage Family Membership.
(Only one card issued)
Encourage Social Group Membership.
(Only one card issued)
Frequent Bowler Club database can also be utilised for Children’s Birthday Parties.
Regular Frequent Bowler Club tournaments could be organised once a month, to introduce
members to the concept of League and Tournament play.
*
League bowlers could be encouraged to join Frequent Bowler Club as a Family Group, so all the
family can benefit.
*
Offer Frequent Bowler Club members one week’s free League Bowling, to experience league play.
*
The Frequent Bowler Club Reporting Menu offers various facilities which must be utilised.
*
A brief newsletter could be produced quarterly to promote the Frequent Bowler Club
*
Membership may be sold for a nominal joining fee, with an annual renewal, and Membership
Cards should be issued, but need not be “bar coded”, as the Frequent Bowler Club System is available
with or without a Bar Code Reader, and the membership number can be easily entered via the keyboard.
An expiry date is imperative as the centre may wish to restructure the club annually.
The Frequent Bowler Club system requires a Value Voucher system to be set up for the
redemption of prizes or rewards - see Sections 4 and 8.
We believe this to be the best system of rewarding the Frequent Bowler, without the
“administrative nightmare” of recording and reporting on points, their accumulation, and their collection
by the customer. It also provides a standard promotional currency with other software modules such as
the Games Package. For more information see Manual G.
Value Vouchers could be simply issued at the Control Desk, at the time of the Frequent Bowler
transaction, so that the customer receives an instant reward, and is totally responsible for its maintenance
or redemption.
The exchange worth of the Value Voucher is entirely up to the operator.
FREQUENT BOWLER CLUB
H-3
FREQUENT BOWLER - REFERENCE GUIDE
“Value Voucher” System
Value Vouchers may be purchased with the Frequent Bowler Club System, allowing the operator
to stamp the Centre’s details, and a “valid to” date, or be printed by the operator directly.
These vouchers are numbered consecutively, display a “Point Value” and are printed in various
colours, making them easily recognisable. A blank space allows for the stamping of the Center’s details,
as well as an expiry date. It is suggested that they should also have a time limitation for redemption, eg. 6
months.
If a currency value was to be used, it should be of the same value as cash ($1.00 Voucher = $1.00
Cash). In this instance, the value of the Voucher will either increase or decrease with the value of the
item, or its discounted price. For example, if a bowling ball is priced at $150, then reduced to $125, it will
cost 125 Voucher Dollars, not 150.
If a point value is used, the exchange of a voucher for an item need not be affected by the item’s
price, or its discounted price. As in the previous example, the $150 bowling ball may be worth 300
Voucher Points, and if its price is reduced to $125, it may still be worth 300 Voucher Points.
For comparative purposes, and to ascertain a desired cash value for a voucher, it is suggested that
[1 Value Voucher = $0.50c] .This is merely a guideline, and you may prefer to setup your own
comparison rate.
Setting Up the Frequent Bowler Club System
POS Item Setup:
Once the Frequent Bowler Club Menu has been installed into your Computer Score System, you
need to activate it through the Point Of Sale Item Setup.
From [M]anagement Menu, choose [9] POS Repair Menu, and then [2] POS Item Setup
(1) Choose an Item Number, preferably within the Open Play item grouping, and simply type in
Frequent Bowler and the relevant game price - be sure to enter [F] in the “Unit” field, and [B] in the
“Report Type”.
Note: If you wish to provide vouchers for every game purchased, then following the item title “Frequent
Bowl.” you need to enter a “value” shown in brackets [
] for example, [1.00]. This represents
the predetermined value given to the Frequent Bowler Club member for every game purchased.
(See 8. Prize Redemption and 7. Frequent Bowler Club Transaction).
(2) If you choose to distinguish between Adult / Junior / Family / Group prices, and allocate
different Game Rates to each type of membership, you will need to create
a separate POS Item for each one, by repeating the procedure as in (1) above.
FREQUENT BOWLER CLUB
H-4
(3) You may also wish to setup another Item Number dedicated to Frequent Bowler Club
Membership, to track the income derived from this area of revenue. This can be done in the conventional
way, by allocating an Item Number to “Frequent Bowler Club Membership” with perhaps a “blank”
price, to cater for various membership price structures, and [O] for “Other Income” in the “Report” field.
Once again if Value Vouchers are awarded for the purchase of membership, then the amount must be
specified in brackets [ ] within the title.
Your Cash Control System is now ready to accept “Frequent Bowler” transactions.
Membership Joining Fees:
This decision is left up to the operator, as the Frequent Bowler Club has the flexibility of
accepting Individual, Family (up to 7 names), and Group (up to 7 names) Memberships. You may decide
to distinguish between Adult and Junior membership, or between Single and Family membership, or even
between Family and Group membership, and perhaps charge a different rate accordingly.
It is suggested that, at the time of joining, the new member is presented with Value Vouchers to
the value of 3 games, or something similar, as a reward for joining, as well as setting the pattern for the
Frequent Bowler Club system.
Game Prices:
This decision is also left up to the operator, but it is suggested that the Frequent Bowler Club
game price would be slightly lower than the normal Open Play rate.
You may decide to replace a “League Practice” rate with the Frequent Bowler Club rate (see
Marketing), or charge different rates for various time-frames, or for different types of membership.
Frequent Bowler could be restricted to weekends only.
Note: If you decide to vary the game price according to situations or membership types, then do not enter
any price in the POS Item Setup (see sub-section [A]).
Entry of Frequent Bowler Club Member Details
From the Frequent Bowler option in the Master Menu, choose [1] Add Frequent Bowler.
The options available from this menu are:
1. Add Frequent Bowler
(Enter a new member)
2. Edit Frequent Bowler
(View or Edit a member’s details)
3. Current Member Print
(See Frequent Bowler Club Reports)
4. Past Member Print
(See Frequent Bowler Club Reports).
The Frequent Bowler Club program automatically allocates a membership number, beginning with
[10001] and advancing each time a new membership is entered. It is advisable to retain membership
numbering in the [10,000] series because in the event of utilising a “Bar Code Reader”, all membership
numbers will have the same number of digits.

Print Code: This can be used to Print or List by Category as decided by the operator. eg. Code
L for League Bowler
Status Code: This is a code Similar to print code but is designed as a follow up tool. eg. Code N
for New Bowler which must be followed up with a welcome letter.

in the family or group. This will be the name used in Mail outs etc.

H-6
Transaction
At transaction time, the entry of your Frequent Bowler POS Item Number will automatically
prompt for the Frequent Bowler Club membership number, and when entered, the membership details
screen will appear (see screen sample on previous page).
This screen is meant to assist the operator in offering special service to a member, also perhaps to
note the following points, and converse accordingly :
1. New Member - get to know
2. Membership due for renewal - remind bowler
3. Last date used - encourage more frequent attendance
4. Coming birthday - plan to send greetings
Any conversation relating to Frequent Bowler Club held at the Control Desk will not only give the
Member some recognition, but will also encourage any non-members present to at least ask about
Frequent Bowler Club
The most significant selling aid for the Frequent Bowler Club is the physical “payment” or reward
handed to the member, right at the transaction time, in the form of the Value Vouchers. Giving
“something for nothing” should induce the Control Operator to promote the Frequent Bowler Club
enthusiastically.
For the Control Operator’s benefit also, the correct number / amount of Value Vouchers to be paid
out will be displayed on the Transaction Screen after the “Amount Tendered” is entered.
If the operator is very busy, or chooses not to use the screen for conversational purposes, simply
by pressing Enter, the screen will revert to the transaction screen.
Note: If Frequent Bowler Club membership number is not known, it can be “screened” through Frequent
Bowler in Master Menu, and choosing [2] Edit Frequent Bowler.
Prize Redemption
The Value Vouchers should be made exchangeable for Games, Merchandise, Cafe or Bar Items, or
even special Retail Items displayed particularly to attract Frequent Bowler Club members. In many cases,
local business houses may be interested in “contra-deals”, that is, products or goods in exchange for incentre advertising.
The operator may choose to accept Value Vouchers in payment for games only at special times, or
for special events, also for selected items from the Cafe, Bar, or Pro Shop.
This limitation will allow the flexibility of “selling” slow-moving stock.
To decide on an “exchange value” of the Value Voucher, it may be considered that One Voucher
could be worth around 25% of the cost of one game at full price, so that a member would in practice
receive one free game for every four purchased, or the equivalent in Points/Cash value.
Another guideline in comparing “dollars and points” values: $1.00 could equal 10 Points.

Games played on the lanes were not accredited to the frequent bowler. This will occur if the bowler
choses to enter his name from the keyboard instead of entering the Frequent Bowler Number as per
instructions on the Overhead Monitors.

This occurs when Frequent Bowler Games have been entered into the system but the operator is not given
the option of entering the Frequent Bowler Number. Ensure that the Point of Sale Item has the unit F for

CASH PAID OUT :
This item allows the recording of cash being taken out of the cash drawer for internal purposes, such as
petty cash purchases, or cash refunds.
Each Cash Paid Out transaction will be printed at the time of the operation, and a password is required to
activate this option. The Shift Report will display all relevant information for each Cash Paid Out item,
CAFÉ PACKAGE
I-7
such as : (a) the name of the staff making the transaction, (b) the amount, (c) the name of the person
receiving the cash, (d) details relating to the transaction.
In the case of change being returned from a purchase, a second Cash Paid Out transaction must be made,
entering the amount of change as a negative amount (because it will be added to the cash in the drawer,
after it had already been taken out ). These details will also be printed on the Shift Report, and the balance
of the Cash Paid Out amount will be correctly deducted from the shift sales figures.
CAFE SHIFT MENU :
This item covers all aspects of a shift’s operation, from the opening of the first morning shift to the
closing off at the end of the day’s trading, as well as reprinting Daily Reports for any day prior to the
current one. The operations are identical to the Lane Control Point of Sale, so you may wish to review
that Manual.
Open Shift
Allows the opening of a shift and commence trading. No transactions can be made unless a
shift is open, and there is no limit to the number of shifts that can be opened / closed in any
one day.
Close Shift
This option will close trading for the current shift, allow the entry of the shift’s takings, and
print a Shift Report.
Note : The banking ( shift’s takings ) need not be entered at the time of closing the shift - it
may be done through option 3.3, but a Shift Report will not be printed unless the banking
amount is entered.
Enter Banking
This option allows the entry of the previous shift’s takings ( banking ) at anytime after the
shift has been closed, and then print a Shift Report.
End of Day
This option will combine all shifts’ transactions for the day, and print a joint report displaying
all details. This report must be printed once only each day, and may be printed either at the
end of the night’s trading, or prior to opening the first shift of the next day.
Previous Shift Report
This option allows the re-printing of the previously closed shift, in the event that the original
report may have been damaged or lost, or simply because more than one copy is required.
CAFÉ PACKAGE
I-8
Current Shift Print
This option will print the current shift’s details prior to the shift being closed. It will therefore
offer an operator the opportunity to check on the transactions and income traded during the
shift before counting the cash and entering the banking figure. This function is passwordprotected, allowing the operator to monitor access to staff members.
Reprint End of Day
This option allows the operator to reprint a Daily Report for any day prior to today, and it is
password-protected.
Note : Daily Reports for previous days will be available only up to the date chosen by the
operator to delete all unwanted daily figures ( see Option 5.6 ).
Employee Details
This option allows the operator to enter / edit / check details of all employees, and carries a
high password requirement. This file is shared by Cafe Menu with Point Of Sale and League
Menus, and contains details of all persons employed in the centre.
CAFE MANAGEMENT MENU :
This part of the Cafe Menu provides various reports on a weekly / monthly / yearly basis, indicating both
the income and the quantities of all items sold for a chosen period. The reports will also provide Year to
Date totals, and comparative figures with the same period in the previous year ( if available ). You must
choose a date ( Week Ending ) for each report to be printed for, and it must be a Sunday. It would be
advisable to familiarise yourself with the predetermined monthly dates ( Option 5.1 ) and mark a calendar
accordingly, to save time when printing reports, otherwise, when prompted for a date, pressing the [ Tab ]
key will display a four-month calendar to assist you.
Weekly Takings
Weekly Quantity
These reports will display all relevant income and quantities details for all Cafe Items as per
the items setup, for any chosen week. Weekly Reports may be printed or re-printed at any
time, but the chosen date must always be a Sunday.
CAFÉ PACKAGE
I-9
Monthly Takings
Monthly Quantity
As in the case of the Weekly Reports above, the Monthly Takings and Quantity Reports will
display all income and quantities sold for any one month, showing details of each week within
that month ( 4 or 5 weeks ). The date chosen for the report printing must be a Sunday, and
should match the predetermined monthly dates as displayed in Option 5.1
Yearly Takings
Yearly Quantity
These reports will display trading figures for all months up to your chosen dates, and
commencing from either January or July, depending on your choice of calendar / fiscal year.
Cafe Item List
This option wil display or print a list of all your Cafe Items, as setup for your operation. If any
items or prices are changed, it would be advisable to print an updated list, for all staff to note.
CAFE REPAIR MENU :
This area of the Cafe Menu covers all aspects of management control of your trading. It includes the
setting / changing of sale items and prices, the facility to view all daily transactions made for a chosen
day, or view / edit trading figures for any chosen Day or Week, and the facility to delete all unwanted
daily trading details up to a chosen date.
Cafe Months Setup
This option displays the predetermined starting date of each month for a given year, and also
the number of weeks in each month. The purpose is to align the comparison between any
month of this year and the corresponding month of last year, also for comparing this year to
date with the previous year to date.
These dates are crucial for the correct printing of data according to a chosen period, and the
Month Setup Dates must never be changed.
Cafe Item Setup
This option will display the current Cafe Items with all relevant details, and will allow the
addition of new items or the editing of existing items. Care must be taken with the deletion of
an unwanted item, as any existing income and quantity relating to that item will be retained in
the same item number line.
For this reason, all commands displayed at the bottom of the screen must be used correctly.
CAFÉ PACKAGE
I-10
Note :
Adding new items to the existing list, or simply changing a price will not affect reports,
however, before any other changes are made to the existing items, a Cafe Close Procedure must
be executed ( Option 5.6 ).
The following commands, displayed at the bottom of the screen, must be used at
all times that an item requires any change of status, and special care must be taken
that prior to any radical changes to the Cafe Items Setup, the Cafe databases have
been backed up to floppy disk ( see Option 7 ), and a Cafe Close Procedure has been
executed up to today ( see Option 5.6 ).

Below.
Warning: Before using the insert, delete, join and move functions you must perform a Café Close
Procedure right up to today’s date, otherwise the financial data linked to the Point of Sale
items will not be correctly transferred to the new item numbers. It would be advisable to
make any of these major changes after end of trading or before trading time. The Join option
may be used without a POS Close but it may take a long time to perform the operation.
[I]nsert
Allows the operator to insert a new item immediately following the currently highlighted
item.

Deletes the currently highlighted item. Note: Do not delete any item that has financial data,
as any income or quantity amounts will not be deleted and be added to any new item taking
the same number.
[M]ove
The move function transfers the currently highlighted item and prompts you to move the item
at the new desired location.
[J]oin
Will delete a highlighted item but retain any income and quantity amounts and allows them to
be joined to data from any other item. The prompts will guide you through this joining
operation.
[Q]uit

CAFÉ PACKAGE
I-11
Cafe Item List
This option will print your current Cafe Items List.
Daily / Weekly Totals
This option will allow you to view / edit any Cafe Income or Quantity trading figures for any
Day or Week, but will require a high password entry. If figures are changed, you will be
prompted to action a Cafe Validation ( see Option 5.5 ). In the event of trading figures being
changed for a Day, the Shift or Daily Reports will not change, if reprinted, for security
reasons
Café Validation
This function must be used after editing any Daily or Weekly figures for recalculation of
Weekly & Monthly totals.
Note :
The Validation should be done for both Last Year and This Year, and this function should also
be used to repair any data corruption that may be displayed in the Weekly Reports.
Café Close Procedure
This option will delete all day files from your Cafe database up to any date of your choice,
but all Weekly, Monthly, Yearly information cannot be deleted. This procedure is designed
to remove all unwanted day-by-day data, which will already have been included in the
Weekly Reports, and should be executed every quarter, or even every month, if preferred. A
Cafe Validation must be run after using this option, and as a security measure, you should
backup your Cafe Databases prior to using this option
Display Café Transactions
This option will allow the display of any Daily Cafe transactions made prior to today, but
only up to the date of the last Cafe Close.
Café Macro Setup
This option allows the setting up of multiple Café Point of Sale items (up to 3) to a single key stroke. Eg.
Holiday Special of 1 Hot Dog, Fries and a Coke could be assigned to the Ctrl+F1 key.
A total of 48 function keys can be assigned these include:
[N]ormal
[S]hift
[C]ontrol
[A]lternate
F1 - F12

Handy Hint:
Before assigning POS Macro keys, it is a good idea to have a printed POS item list handy
with a description of each POS item number.
Note:
Function keys can be to a single POS item in the POS item setup. These function keys have
priority over the POS macro keys. Avoid, if possible setting up conflicting POS Shortcut keys.
Note:
The Price entered into the Price Column must be the Total Price for however many of that
item that will be included, not the unit price for each item.
CAFÉ BACKUPS :
This option allows the copying of all Cafe Databases to a floppy disk. Ideally, it should be executed on
the same day each week, and is best done prior to start, or after ending trading. This function should be
used weekly, as a safety precaution in preventing the loss of valuable trading figures. The prompts on
screen will guide you through this operation.
You should have at least four sets of backup disks, and each week the oldest backup disk is reused. It is
advisable that the disks be re-formatted from time to time to verify their data integrity.

AUTOMATIC SCORING
GETTING STARTED
The Video Pinsensing Adaptor (VPA) is an optional expansion Printed Circuit Board (PCB) that plugs
into the expansion port of the Main PCB, the Enhanced Colour Terminal Card (ECT). The VPA card has
a two functions. Firstly it interprets a Video Signal from a Closed Circuit TV Camera mounted on the
Lane Capping between the two lanes. This Camera is a Charged Coupled Device (CCD) and
simultaneously views the Pins on both lanes and this video picture is interpreted by the VPA to determine
the score on each lane, without any bowler input. The second function of the VPA is to take a second
video signal from a Video Cassette Recorder, which gives Computer Score a Television reception
capability. For the Cabling layout of the VPA and the remainder of the system, see The Hardware
Installation Diagrams.
The VPA is designed to be Autonomous in the adjustment and configuration ready to score. It
automatically finds each pin on the lane, so the user does not have to assign a pin number to any pin. It
also automatically adjusts to light variations over time to account for day and night time conditions.
The VPA also tracks the operation of the Pin Setter, with no connection to the machine to
determine whether the Pin Spotter is on first or second ball. Thus stopping the Scoring and the Pin
Spotters from becoming out of step.
AUTOMATIC PINSENSING
J-1
AUTOMATIC PINSENSING - WORKBOOK
Configuring the VPA
Once the VPA and the remainder of the system has been installed by Computer Score. The VPA must be
configured before automatic operation can begin and is usually performed by Computer Score at the time
of installation but may need to be repeated in case a where camera is moved. This step may also have to
be repeated where lighting conditions, machine operation or machine condition is altered.
Note: In order to configure the VPA, both lanes of the pair must be on with 10 pins
standing on both lanes.
The configuration screen for the VPA is accessed through [S]etup in the Control Lanes program. The
following screen is then presented to the operator.

Automatic Y/N:
Ball Detector:

Frame Sync:
This line sets individual lanes to Semi Automatic or Fully Automatic scoring.
This line turns Ball Detection On or Off. Ball Detection (as opposed to light ball
triggering) stops wrong scores from being displayed when no ball is bowled and the
machine cycle button is pushed.
This line appears only when the Pinspotter foul units are connected to the
Computer Score System. Individual lanes can be enabled or disabled.
The VPA has the ability to distinguish between First and Second ball by the
operation of the Pinspotter. This means that if a situation occurs where the Scoring
is on second ball and the Pinspotter is on first Ball the next score is overwritten as
the first ball, thus synchronising the Scoring and the Pinspotter quickly.
For more information on [A]rrows Setup see: Lane Control: Manual B
AUTOMATIC PINSENSING
J-2
After pressing [V]PA, the operator is asked a series of questions:
Configure Pinsensor From Lane
The first lane to be configured.
To Lane
The last lane to be configured.
Configure Lane _ to Lane _ [Y]es, [N]o, [A]dvanced? Y/N/A?
Confirmation to Continue. A summary of the Take Data time delays are also displayed at the
bottom of the screen. [A]dvanced takes the user into an additional section where the camera Take
Data time delay is set and viewing of the results can be requested. After [A]dvanced is selected,
the time delays for all lanes are displayed.
Time Delay
This is amount of time the Camera will wait, after seeing the Rake, before taking the score. If this
time is set too short, then late pin fall will affect score accuracy. If it is too long, then the pins will
be swept away first on second ball cycle. This value is usually set at 95. If the score displays a
spare instead of the correct second ball score, reduce the time delay.
View Results on Lane Monitor? Y/N?
The usual answer is No. However if the answer is Yes, then a simplified picture of what the CCD
camera views is displayed on the odd lane of the pair being configured.
After answering these questions, the configuration process begins, and is automatic from the operator’s
point of view. The Y is removed from the Automatic line on the Setup screen, and a few moments later it
is either replaced by another Y or a code a help with troubleshooting.
Note: A “1” signifies that there is no Video signal coming into the VPA. A “0” signifies that the VPA
Camera is not adjusted properly.
AUTOMATIC PINSENSING
J-3
AUTOMATIC SCORING - TROUBLE SHOOTING
A Pair of Lanes Stops Scoring Completely
1. Check to make sure that Automatic Scoring is not disabled at the lane itself. If the option that allows
this to occur is set in General Parameters, then the Scoring can be disabled from Help Option 7
“Scoring Options” and by pressing D at that point. A sign then appears to notify the bowler that
manual scoring is selected. This sign will reappear every time the Help system is used.
2. Check whether either or both lanes are not set Semi Automatic with a N in the [S]etup screen in
Control Lanes.
3. Reconfigure the VPA for that pair of lanes. Make sure there are 10 pins on both lanes and both pit
lights are on. If a Y appears at the end of the configuration process, then the VPA has accepted the
configuration and scoring should be able to be continued. If both lanes stopped scoring completely
then it is likely that a 1 may appear as a configuration result. This means that there is no Video signal
coming in to the VPA.
4. Check the CCD camera to make sure that the Red LED light at the front of the Camera is on. Check
that the DC power plug is in and that there is 12 Volts at that plug. If there is power at the plug and the
light is off, the Camera is probably not functioning and could be checked by using a Video Cassette
Recorder to tape the camera’s output signal and play through a normal TV.
Note: Camera output is NTSC (American) Standard.
5. If there is no power at the DC plug, check connections at the plug and at the Overhead Display Unit.
Also check that power output from the Computer Power Supply located in the unit is correct.
6. Reconfigure VPA to confirm if investigations have found the fault.
7. Contact Computer Score Support Staff if fault continues.
Lanes Do Not Score the Correct Number of Pins
1. Reconfigure the VPA
2. If a Y appears as a result for the appropriate lane, then the problem should be fixed and scoring can
continue. If this is the case, the Camera has probably been bumped.
3. If a 0 appears in the results for the VPA, then the VPA has not accepted the Video signal that is coming
from the Camera. Reconfigure the VPA again and answer Y to display the simplified picture on the
Overhead Display Unit. You should be able to count ten vertical lines above each pin. If two pins are
merged into one on the screen, then the VPA cannot distinguish between the two. Check Camera
Focus and Aperture and Machine spotting accuracy.
4. Possible reasons for a failed result include:
• Either or both lanes don’t have a full set of 10 pins.
• One or both Pit Lights are off, too dull or of different light qualities. Recommended
Fluorescent Tube model is Tri Phosphorus
• Extraneous light streaming onto the lane from a window or open door.
• Oils streaks on the Curtain. These appear shiny to the Camera and must be eliminated.
• Dust or grime on the Lens
• No white strip on either or both Rakes
• Focus or Aperture of the Lens has been moved
• Damage to the neck area of the pin
• Old or Dirty Pins with dull surface
AUTOMATIC PINSENSING
J-4
• Curtain too Shiny / without a Matte finish.
5. If the configuration is performed OK and incorrect scores are occurring on the second ball score only,
then a possible fault could be with the Pinspotter’s fingers. If the fingers of the machine are worn, then
the machine can pick up the pins no longer straight up and down. When the pin is put down again it is
put down in a slightly off spot position. The pin is no longer where the VPA expects it to be and so it
can be “lost”. This problem can happen with any machine type but is most common with Brunswick
machines. The problem can often be seen where there is a large amount of wobble when pins are set
down ready for second ball.
VPA Gives Wrong Scores on Second Ball Only
If the VPA configures OK but consistently gives incorrect scores on the second ball, then the most likely
problem is that the time delay for pin action is set too long. The rake is already wiping out the pins when
the time delay runs out and the Camera takes the score. Press P for
Pindication on the Scoring Console to confirm. If the time delay is too long, the head pin and possibly the
2 and 3 pin could be missing.
Reconfigure the VPA and shorten the time delay. Also check the Pin Spotter’s second ball time
delay operation. If possible make sure that the two machines in each pair work on approximately the
same length time delay.
Another possible cause for this fault is that the sweep may by incorrectly adjusted. Check sweep
adjustment, especially whether the clearance above the pin deck is correct throughout its cycle. Machine
operation must be consistent and to the manufactures specifications for correct camera operation.
Second Ball Scores are Overwritten as First Ball
This is a failure of the Frame Sync feature and can be confirmed by disabling the Frame Sync for the
appropriate lanes. Check the aperture and focus settings for the Camera. Also check the quality of the
Fluorescent tubes in the Pit Lights.
