    Game Scores App - Version 1.1 release

    This is a fun little app that uses a suggestion made in the "Ideas for Another App" thread for a calculation of Game Scores. It calcs the game scores for batters and pitchers, excluding errors (they are not available in 2K9 text files), and lists the number of starts, the average game score, and the high game score and date. It also lists the top 5 pitching and batting performances and the dates of each.

    As with most of my apps, you must first have exported the text box score files for the time period you select. You can save each set of parameters under a different name, to be recalled later, if you wish.

    You can sort the data by number of starts, average score, and high score.

    Comments/Feedback welcome.

    EDIT: Version 2 released

    Version 2:

    Works with whole names instead of just first initials. Should be compatible with BBM 2011 now. New zip attached.

    Version 1.1:

    Fixed bug where a player with only negative game scores would not show up in the list.
    Added output to CSV file, viewable by Excel or Notepad. File lists Date (April 3 1961), Player Name (J. Piersall), and Game Score, separated by commas.

    Screenshot of what I have currently (needs to be cleaned up a bit). Comments welcome. The calcs come from here (fourth post down). The buttons to view the data behind the output do not work yet.

    Another screenshot - almost have it ready for release. I just need to make the home/road stats work correctly if the user chooses Home or Road. Current progress:

    Hey Mizerak, I haven't been on this board in awhile so I'm just now seeing this. Nice work, as usual. Thanks for doing this.

    You are very welcome. It's a fun little app. At some point I will make it so that the output files show the game scores for each player. How would you want to see that data, i.e.

    Game Date, then all game scores for that date (w/player names), or

    Player Name, then all scores for that player (no dates)?

    Re: Game Scores App

    I would want to see the game date, player name, and daily player score parsed as three separate fields/columns. That way you could do an Excel sort on any of the three fields.

    Can't get it to work for me (on 11...however, I no longer have '10 to see whether it's a compatibility issue or operator error)

    Re: Game Scores App

    What is it doing? Giving an error, or just not giving any data?
