We are offering you the first experience of the new version of MF Pro. As we are leaving our workplace for holidays, we will make an official release when we get back to allow users to choose which version to use in case there are problems.

In today's update:

IMPROVEMENTS

1. We are introducing a new concept in triggered betting -- a bet lifetime (Vida útil da aposta). A bet lifetime is the time (in seconds) for which an unmatched bet stays in the market before being cancelled by the program. The lifetime can be set in any trigger that places a bet, e.g. "back", "lay", "cancel then back", "green up", "distribute loss" etc. See the attached screenshots that will help you find the new option.
The lifetime can be input as a number, a trigger expression, a variable, an arithmetic expression or a combination of them. Naturally, matched bets do not have a lifetime, nor do SP bets, because neither of them can be cancelled.

2. We have added trigger variables with suffixes _datestr and _timestr that express a date and time in user-friendly format. For example, now_time_datestr returns the current date in dd/mm/yyyy format, e.g. 10/07/2017, and event_off_timestr returns the time of the start of an event as hh:nn:ss, e.g. 14:54:02. Here is the full list of the added variables:

now_time_datestr, now_time_timestr, event_finished_datestr, event_finished_timestr, event_off_datestr, event_off_timestr, event_start_datestr, event_start_timestr, refresh_start_datestr, refresh_start_timestr, last_suspend_datestr, last_suspend_timestr, last_inplay_datestr, last_inplay_timestr, last_goal_time_datestr, last_goal_time_timestr.

3. We have added the following new variables for the amount of money matched on a selection:
 tradedh_{price} -- amount of money matched at the specified price or higher. For example, tradedh_4.5 will return the cumulative amount of money traded at the prices of 4.5, 4.6, 4.7 and so on up to 1000.
 tradedl_{price} -- amount of money matched at the specified price or lower. For example, tradedl_4.5 will return the cumulative amount of money traded at the prices of 4.5, 4.4, 4.3 and so on down to 1.01.

Both variables will only work if you activated "Load traded volume for all prices" in General Options.

4. We have added variables returning the total amount of money offered (not matched) for a selection at a particular back price, and the amount of money offered at a particular lay price. They are b_offered_{price} and l_offered_{price} respectively. These variables will only work if you activated "Retrieve all price offers" in General Options.

5. We have added selection trigger variables silk_numeric_form, silk_numeric_form_{index} and silk_numeric_form_length. These works exactly like silk_form, silk_form_{index} and silk_form_length, except that the form identifier is stripped of all non-numeric characters. I.e. 5-32PxU7 turns into 5327. You may want to use these variables if you want to ignore all races where the horse did not participate until the finish or separate years in its career.

BUGS FIXED

1. In Real Mode, the trigger action "Reset Win/Lose History" would only reset the history for a short time and then reload the statement and re-populate the win/lose history variables.

2. The market_parent variable was giving the wrong text if the market had been added by Market Locator.

3. We have fixed the "Abnormal program termination" message that would occasionally shut down the program if you were viewing BetFair charts in several markets simultaneously.

Hi Oxa
Just a quick review, all positive.

Bet lifetime works well and its great that expressions can be used here. There may be some call for a similar facility for manually placed bets via the ladder etc., but all in all a very useful tool.

The date and time strings are indeed helpful.

This version is running well and looks quite stable, no problems to report.

Thank you.

Oxa & Co

After I downloaded the new version I cannot login and get the error message INVALID HTTP RESPONSE: 503

I then tried reinstalling the previous version but get the same error screen.

What should I try next? A System Restore?

With thanks

Mike.

Can you explain what does it mean exactly? I thought that from now it's possible to make a trigger allerting user that some money is waiting to get matched. Am I wrong?

You are right. By checking, say, b_offered_1.5 you can make a trigger that will alert you when a certain about of money is waiting to get matched at the back price of 1.5.
