Exception Error and Cab Info Form Problem

Unread post by K6LE » Sun 6. Dec 2009, 01:35

I just used RUMped for my first full contest, Tara Melee.

Worked very well and I am impressed with all it's functionality.

Only two issues came up for me. One in the contest and one when I try to create the Cab file.

The one in the contest is another "exception error when I asked for the "QSO's / Multiplies with dupes" report. It is repeatable.

My work around was not to do that again!

The other problem I am having is probably my fault but when I try to fill out the Cabrillo info sheet there are no contests in the drop down menu. I have this one and the rest in the Plugin folder and Contest Maker sees them but the Cab box doesn't.

In summary though it's was a lot of fun using RUMped and it made the RTTY contest almost too easy!

NIL exception:
Well, there is a bug in RUMped. The fix was easy, but I'm not able to upload it yet, since I have limited internet access today. As workaround use the attached modified contest plug in.

Cabrillo:
There was no contest name given in the plugin using the ContestMaker tool, it's corrected in the attached file.

Put the plugin into the Plugins folder within your RUMped folder.
