New Hybrid Version Available

The updated version of the Hybrid is now available. Users can download from the same location with the same instructions. I’ll remove the upload within 24hrs so please download it before then.
There are only minor changes to this version. Basically it addresses some instability issues. Also set the rotor deceleration rate to -0.0084 instead. I need to create a video that explains how to fine-tune this value for whatever wheel you are playing on, because some rotors are significantly different. Although before I have the chance to make the video, we may have even implemented the feature that automatically determines the correct value for you. It won’t be a significant difference in most cases though, but it’s better to use the correct value especially in cases where rotor speeds vary significantly.

New Uber Computer

With the Hybrid development well in control, heavy development has begun on the new Uber version. I don’t think we’ll call it “Uber” though to avoid confusion. If anyone has a good name in mind, let me know.
Some of the benefits of this version will be:
* Same accuracy as Uber, but much easier to use. It will run you through each step so you wouldn’t even need to read the instructions. I want to make it so anyone can use it (including the advanced parts).
* All data will be saved to a server via wireless internet. This way I can easily review data and offer advice. For example, I’ll be able to see your jump charts, and all other data including ball timings. So if you’re doing something wrong, it will be much easier for me to support you.
Again the emphasis will be on simplicity, without compromising on accuracy.
I don’t know what the price will be yet. It depends on development costs. But I intend to offer payment plans with it. For example, eligible players will just need to pay the costs of hardware, and can pay the rest off with winnings.
From here I expect the first version will be working within a month. But it will need a lot of testing before it is released. In total, approximately 2 months before it’s available.

Closing and Resolving Tickets Via The Helpdesk

When I respond to your ticket, if the matter is clearly resolved, I’ll mark it resolved and close the ticket. You can still re-open it if matters still aren’t resolved, then add a new reply to the ticket. But in matters where you may have further questions, the ticket will stay open after my response. Then if after a week you don’t respond to it, I’ll assume you have no further questions, and I’ll automatically close it. This is so I don’t have a long list of unresolved tickets in my helpdesk interface. You can still re-open any ticket if needed.

Hybrid training video

Next week I’ll be doing a full training video for the hybrid roulette computer. It will more be a general training video than a live support meeting, so all hybrid users will be able to learn from it. Then in the weeks afterwards, we’ll do a live webcam meeting via so all players can ask whatever questions as they come to mind during the whole process. This will also be recorded so hybrid users can learn from it. Essentially the two videos will be very similar, but the second one will include all the questions players have asked, with my responses. If you manage to stay awake for the second video (it will be long and tedious), you’ll learn a lot from it.
I will remind everyone later, but if you attend the live meeting/training:
* Do NOT create a ustream account using your real name
* Do NOT release any private information via the chat window
This is because other people will be able to see the chat window. It will be a private and password-protected broadcast, but still other players who you do not know will see the video at some stage later. If you’ve already used your real name in your account, don’t worry the video wont be released to anyone but you for your review.

Marking priority of tickets in help desk

Some players are marking tickets as critical and urgent etc for matters that aren’t justifiably urgent. An urgent matter is something like you being in a casino and you forgot to force a code earlier. This should never happen anyway if you check when the code expires. Almost never are matters truly urgent. I pay close attention to matters that are marked urgent, and respond usually within 1-3 hours if matters are truly urgent. Basically I’m asking that people don’t abuse the urgency ratings.

Hybrid green area mod complete

The Hybrid mod where the jump chart’s green areas are highlighted is now complete and working perfectly. It was actually completed last week. The next couple of mods are some minor corrections. These shouldn’t take long, but this kind of work is unpredictable because we need to find the source of problems first. The issues haven’t been reported and are rare, but I’ve experienced them in my own tests.
Then the next mods will be based mostly around diamond targeting and dynamic tuning to account for different ball bounce on different rotor speeds (otherwise known as “target” and “dynamic”). This part will be done likely in two stages though. On some wheels, this can triple accuracy of predictions. The downside is you usually need to skip a few spins in between, although isn’t really a problem in real casinos because you don’t normally bet on every computer prediction anyway, or your behavior is too obvious. You want to bet only on the most accurate predictions. In typical conditions, you may bet only on 1 in 3 spins.

Hybrid & JAA updates

The latest hybrid update is now available. There will be another in about a week. The JAA update is still not complete. The programmer did say it was, but I expected he would have missed something. It is incredibly close to ready, and is just missing one part that the programmer can’t seem to understand. Granted it is complex, and progress is being made, albeit much more slowly than it should have been.

Hybrid V3 Mod: Chart green areas

The programmer is starting work on the next mod, which is implementation of the green areas for the jump charts. These make it easier to know the optimal jump counts – it’s the same algorithm used by JAA and the Uber computer. There are still lots of little mods that are being done, although none are critical, and I don’t need reminding. Everything is being done in order of priority. As for the latest release, I’ll make it available either today or tomorrow depending on available time.

Hybrid V3 tuned predictions on main processor

Now the main processing unit is able to have it’s own set of tuned predictions. This is not normally used, unless you are using the Hybrid by yourself, or perhaps playing at an online casino. But before I release the build, there is one small correction which allows all the tuned predictions to be displayed on the screen too. This will easily be done within 24hrs.
