Note: If you are using Windows XP you MUST Have Service Pack 3 installed.

Step 1 - Software Installation

Download and unzip the software and run setup.exe, click next and yes to all options and then launch the software via the icon on your desktop:

Step 2 - Run the setup Wizard

Note: You must have a connection to the internet to run the wizard for the FIRST TIME ONLY, otherwise setup will fail, if you have any firewall that might block outgoing communication be sure to allow Tournament In A Box Offline Client to connect or place it on your whitelist.  Also insure your local timezone is correct and the clock on your computer is accurate, otherwise license authentication will fail.

Note: Internet access is required when you run the first time setup wizard and when registering the software.

Step 3 - Register the software!

Tournamen In a Box will not run unless it has been registered, you must import the proper registration file to your system. The length of time allowed to run the software will be limited by the terms of your license file.  Once you have received the license file save it to your desktop, then click, 'Install a license file...'  Browse to the location of the license file you saved earlier then click on the file and import it.  Remember you will need internet access when you register the first time to validate your license, but after that you will not need internet access to run the software.

Step 4 - Login and get started!

Default Username: Admin

Default Password: owner

Note the username is not case sensative but the password is and it is all lowercase!

Once logged in you can change the password if you want via the user profiles button on the ribbon bar.

 

 

 

 

Step 5 - Optimise your computer for the electronic scoreboard

There are several windows settings that you will want to tweak to insure that your scoreboard runs smoothly.

  • Disable any Screen Savers (you don't want this popping up randomly)
  • Control Panel -> Power Settings -> disable sleep modes and disable turning off of montor, and hard drive when the computer is plugged in
  • Control Panel -> Power Settings -> enable full screen brightness
  • Temporarily disable windows update (so windows doesn't reboot in a match!)
  • Add your event wall paper to the background for a professional look
  • Hide your Task bar (optional to prevent volunteers from accidentally clicking on it)
  • Assign Static IP (optional if using LAN Setup)
  • Assign Computer Name that matches the ring Number (optional if using LAN Setup)

Essential Requirements

Supported Operating Systems:

  • Windows XP SP3
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7 / 8 / 10
  • Mac (via Parallels or Virtual Box) Although we recommend Microsoft Windows

Additional Considerations

Good Ideas to improve performance

  • Disable all Firewalls on Server Of course if you are an advanced user you can port forward but for most people its better to just turn it off if you are on a closed network for the event then turn it on later when you get on the internet
  • Disable Windows Update Updates are important but you won't want windows deciding to reboot and install an update in the middle of Men's Open Kumite on your scoreboard machine!
  • Choose A Suitable Background Image If you are running electronic scoreboards the crowd will see your background so its a good idea to have your event sponsor or logo wallpaper installed ahead of time
