  • auto shut off in conqueror free play?

    We have quibica/amf conqueror, and I was wondering if a function was available.. I have the capability of just opening a lane in free play, which has an endless amount of games, as well as a prepay option to shut the lanes off when they reached the end of what they payed for.. What I am curious about is if it was possible that when a large group of people came in and they knew they had a maximum amount of games they thought they could play, (say 3) as well as not knowing exactly how many people they had, people wanting to add on mid game, delete and switch names between lanes.. Other words just opening up the lanes in endless mode, so they can add and remove names as they please.. but not able to go past the three game threshold.. Its slightly getting annoying opening a large group of lanes with say one game in the computer as a placeholder until they got the names in.. and they going through and adjusting the amount of games, only to have them remove people and switch between lanes..

    Im looking for the flexibility of endless play (names and such) but the ending setting of the prepay (say 3 games max, regardless of how many names/ and still be able to avoid having to adjust the amount of games manually.. like open and forget until they are done type thing and still do a group closing, and change prices, and such).... I know I am most not likely explaining this right, but if you have any questions.. feel free to ask.

    I think one thing that might complicate this is let's say you open a lane for three names and three games each. Then those three bowl one game and add two more names. Since the newly added names have not bowled yet instead of shutting off at three games for the original names will it now shut off only after the new names have bowled three games and if so will it allow the old names to bowl an additional game while the new ones bowl theirs?..... im confused now...

      Mike, it's not possible. Conqueror will either count the number of games/frames pre-assigned, or will tally them in post-assigned mode. You could assign three games to each person, but that would be in pre-assigned mode, and if you add another player to the lane, it will takes those frames off the other players.

      Now if you had everyone's name, you could transfer the bowler and transfer the games with it, but that does not sound possible in your specific scenario as you don't know all the names in advance.

      I don't know how any scoring system could do it, because what would prevent me from bowling two games, and then adding another name and bowl two more, then add another name and bowl two more...

        that sounds about right.. just a nice idea i guess.. The "placecard" method is getting old.. we would always have lanes shut off early for lack of games entered per extra added names, or have them pay for two games, then delete a name without telling us, and therefore the extra unpaid frames in the third game, not that they are willing to pay for it because there was not actually a person bowling it... We will start with one game in the system, and when they type in four names, we add three more games to make it even... when they delete a name without letting us know.. its actually 2 people playing one game, and 1 person playing two. but they will argue that there should be ONLY three games because they think three people played 1 game because there are three names on the screen.. so a mix of endless and preapid would be nice sometimes.. I guess we could just take away their ability to adjust the names.. but in the winter, we dont have time to ask how to spell names when 50 people are waiting in line.. see what I am trying to get at.. even an easier method would be nice..
