Sunset Approaches for CGStatLink Products

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost four and a half years since the first CGStatLink product for Baseball/Softball was released. We… kind of knew what we were doing. There was a lot of stumbling around and figuring things out as we went. We’ll never forget how excited we were when, after a month of having a working product, we finally had our first paying customer! Looking back at our build archive, I found our very first working build. I didn’t even know if it would run, but it did!

We’ve… come a long way:

And for comparison, the Baseball UI for SuiteCG MultiSport Scoreboard:

What started out as strictly an StatCrew-to-LiveText converter quickly grew in to something much more, with other sports to support, an unexpected demand for manual controls, and eventually a very basic internal character generator.

It’s bittersweet to say it, but CGStatLink had it’s heyday. It’s time to start wrapping up support of this product line to make way for it’s progeny- SuiteCG MultiSport Scoreboard.

The sun is starting to set on CGStatLink.

Effective July 13, 2018 we will no longer be offering 4-month licenses of any CGStatLink products. We will continue to offer 1-month and 1-week licenses up until the release of SuiteCG. We have only a few bugs to kick and we are working on our Knowledge Base, which will also serve as the user documentation.

SuiteCG MultiSport Scoreboard does not currently have any data automation features. To this end, CGStatLink Football and Baseball/Softball will continue to be available to schools requiring XML automation until such time that SuiteCG offers complimentary features. Let me say that again: schools requiring XML automation will be able to still purchase specific CGStatLink products by special request until SuiteCG MultiSport Scoreboard offers similar features.

MultiSport Scoreboard has taken a lot longer than we had hoped to release, but we hope it will be worth the wait. It is in every way a superior product to CGStatLink, giving the user much more flexibility to adapt the program to their specific needs, providing animated graphics packages via NDI(R), and offering a large, touchscreen-friendly user interface for easy operation.

We will be announcing pricing very soon, as well as pushing some new content updates to the website.

The sun is setting on CGStatLink, but the dawn of SuiteCG is not far behind!

 

Behind the Scenes Look at MultiSport Scoreboard

SuiteCG is excited to unveil this first behind the scenes look at our flagship module: MultiSport Scoreboard! There are still a few bugs to work out and features to get in place before our first release, but we wanted to get this out so people can see the flexibility that this program offers for fine-tuning controls to your specific sports and language needs. Take a peek and let us know what you think. Join our Facebook community to discuss and offer feedback!

Baseball/Softball 2.1 Brings DakStats, Pitcher and Batter Stats, and International Language Options!

CGStatLink Lite- Baseball/Softball is now available for download. Users with current licenses will be automatically prompted to download the update the next time they launch the program.

This new release brings the following new features:

  1. Added support for DakStats Baseball/Softball XML files. Support is limited, as Dakstats does not output the current pitch count, so balls and strikes are unavailable.
  2. STATCREW AND DAKSTATS ONLY- Added conversion elements for current pitcher and current batter. A new graphics package is available from the website. Support includes season stats when a StatCrew CAP file is used. Season stats are still being tested for DakStats. These outputs are unavailable in Manual Mode.
  3. Added International Language Support. Now, via a text file, international customers can edit values for “Top of the”, “Bottom of the”, “Final”, and ordinal values for inning numbers.

This release has a few other small tweaks and fixes as well to improve performance. Visit the Baseball/Softball Product Page to download a trial!
