  1. Outer Bets Panel works, but ladder still does not show bets or Greening
  2. Thanks. I tried to reproduce the Unhandled Exception problem today, but could not - opening and closing the Bets Panel several times worked fine. However, when I placed a Back bid on the ladder (price column, not Greening column) the program crashed again. I checked the log afterwards - there were no errors logged. I'll keep trying to reproduce the crash. I'm using the Zip version of 5.50

    Errors 5.50

    Hello First error - when using the Outer Bets Panel, bids do not appear on the ladder. After the bid is matched, there is no Greening - column remains blank: Second error - I placed a bid, then tried to green my position, the program crashed. Could not repeat a second time. Third error - I clicked Opening Bet Panel... ...which caused this error: Also, still waiting for an answer here: I figured out the answer for myself, but it would be nice to have some info from the admin - maybe a User Guide in the forum?
  4. Hi Andrei I've just installed Bot Beetle, and when I try to access historical data, I get the following error: Date:09/07/2021 13:50:30;Type:Exception; Text:System.Data.Entity.Core.EntityException: The underlying provider failed on Open. ---> System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: SQL Network Interfaces, error: 52 - Unable to locate a Local Database Runtime installation. Verify that SQL Server Express is properly installed and that the Local Database Runtime feature is enabled.) ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The system cannot find the file specified I don't have any SQL software on my computer, so I guess that is why it doesn't work. Can you confirm what (SQL) software I need to use historical data? Which database software do you recommend to work with BotBeetle? Many thanks kiwi
  5. Hi Admin It's good to see Bot Beetle getting a review, but I don't think it is fair or accurate - whoever 'reviewed' Bot beetle missed important details: * C# scripts * Chart interface * Live score for soccer and tennis, available at the top of the grid/ladder window (this is not available in some other very popular software) * Schedule windows for tennis, horses, soccer and greyhounds These features stand out from other software I use regularly on Betfair/Betdaq, and IMHO make Bot Beetle a good choice for intermediate traders (like me), and for advanced/professional users - not just beginners. It looks like someone in Caan's office tried the software for a few minutes, then wrote a review on his behalf (using images copied from your website) - Caan has a particular way of speaking and writing, and this review does not match his style. Hopefully we will see more reviews in future - maybe with screenshots/video of the reviewer actually using the software! Cheers!
  6. I deleted the Settings folder. Horse Racing in the main menu is still broken. Horse schedule works, but I'm not going to risk my money

    5.32 bugs

    Same problems as previous versions, maybe worse. Cancelled LAY bets show as back bets and no response from admin. If you can't fix these problems, maybe I can get a refund on my subscription???
  8. Some things have been broken since 5.25. New features are nice to have, but what about old bugs? Will these be fixed? > Log in to botbeetle > Open Horse racing market > No data, same as version 5.25, 5.26, 5.27, 5.28, 5.29... > Go to soccer market > No data > Go to tennis market > There is data!!! > Go back to soccer and horses > Now there is data...??? > Bets on the ladder cannot be cancelled - the bet does not respond to mouse clicks, and must be cancelled from the bet window. > The bet window shows cancelled bets. Cancelled Lay bets show as back bets. See photo > Sometimes bets are submitted, but do not appear on the ladder
  9. From the betfair website: Ability to place lower minimum stakes at larger prices In order to allow customers to bet to smaller stakes on longer-priced selections, an extra property has been added to our Currency Parameters – “Min Bet Payout”. As currently, bets where the backer’s stake is at and above the ‘Min Bet Size’ for the currency concerned (£2 for GBP) are valid. In addition, bets below this value are valid if the payout of the bet would be equal to or greater than the value of ‘Min Bet Payout’ - £10 for GBP. For example, a bet of £1 @ 10, or 10p @ 100 or 1p @ 1000 are all valid as they all target a payout of £10 or more. https://docs.developer.betfair.com/display/1smk3cen4v3lu3yomq5qye0ni/New+API+Release+-+8th+August+2016
  10. After login there is still no data in 5.27. I have to restart the application every time. Sound has stopped working Bets on the ladder cannot be cancelled or moved with left-mouse click-drag Scroll bars go off screen - see attached photo Dutching window - live score/progress bar does not show, unless market is in play (has to be turned off then on to show)
  11. Hello Admin Could you write a sample tennis script please? I want to automate the Break of Serve strategy, but I've just started to learn C# and I'm lost already! The (well-known) strategy: If the server or favourite is facing a break of serve, we place a lay bet If the server wins the point - the score is now 30-40 - we hedge/green for a loss If the server loses the point, we hedge/green for a profit Placing the bets - we could place a bet at the current lay price, or use a higher price (betfair will use Best Price Execution and match at the current price). WTA games usually have more breaks of serve than ATP. Is it possible to bet every time there is a break of serve? There can be a lot of games some days, maybe one bet per tennis match is safer...
