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!
