Hi
In your first post you mention counting 4 wins and switching to test mode. It sounds like you are using Win/Lose variables?

If yes try a second action in the trigger that switches test mode on:
reset Win/Lose History
Please read the following disclaimer with regards to the information you may request and obtain on our forum. This specifically concerns trigger files and various instructions as to how to implement a strategy.

Sorry, but this is all beyond me... there are no logs if the trigger doesn't fire. I dont have a clue what I'm looking for!

Wish someone had simple trigger that placed a real lay bet that won then switched to Test and placed test bets. Does anyone know where I can pick a working example? Might give me an idea where this is going wrong!
Regards

In the snapshot I posted earlier on this thread, you can see the trigger logs and you can see it checking the conditions preparing to fire. It read some as ok and fired, then it read others as false and did not fire. You should be able to see the same process on your trigger files for each race at the time the trigger is supposed to fire.

I am not aware of any working examples of triggers switching. Go back through all the old posts under Triggered Betting and archives, there is probably one or two somewhere.

I doubt anyone will post a working trigger for you, I may be wrong. There is no way for anyone to write an example for you and testing it without using real funds, so I doubt that will happen unless one of the pro's have the time.

Also, I think Marks last suggestion was a really good one.

Here, try to add this trigger block to your overall. Adjust the variables and the trigger conditions until you get the overall working correctly and in the correct order.

But, as you will be be switching between real and test modes, I hasten to add that this is a suggestion only, not a recommendation by any means.

Hi All,
I'm not using win lose history variables but a simple user variable to store the accumulating wins. It then zeros after 4 wins, switches to demo(it does but doesn't do anymore bets) and waits for a loser, then starts again after with real money bets!

Only time it does what its supposed to is when I reload the triggers.
Thanks

I've made some changes and will come back to you all in the next few days after racing, see if I have resolved the troubles I've been having.
Thank you to everyone.

Hello everyone...

I've been through yesterdays log files and found what the problem is.

I went out for the day yesterday and left MF Pro running. It placed and won the first 4 real money bets, then switched over to test placing test bets waiting for the loser before starting with real money again.

Well going through the log files when most of the conditions are true and its about to place bets it checks...

Previous Triggered Event's Status is Settled
or Trigge Lay Number of runs is equal to 0 overall(null)

and BOTH are FALSE so bet doesn't get placed even though the previous bet/market was settled hours ago. And this remains the same all day so no bets are getting placed at all.

This would also explain why, when I reload the triggers betting works ok.

Anyone know whats happening here?
Harry

Yes, I have noticed this problem when switching to test mode with those conditions in the betting trigger.  The test mode switch wasn't part of the betting strategy, I was simply continuing the betting to see what would happen if run continuously, so I gave up trying to solve it.

I don't believe this is a bug, but the way the program is written, where previous triggered event refers to the mode the trigger is in, live or test.  It might be worth puting in a trigger request using Make Me a Trigger, to see if the experts can solve the problem.

Where do I find the Make me a Trigger request page, never seen this?

I could do with some help to get around this because this is definitely stopping my system functioning properly and has had me believing that I was doing something wrong!

I've found the page on the forum, guess that may be my only way to solve this problem!

Hi,

It sounds like you are swithing over to test mode before the last market are settled (maybe that couse the problmes?). Test to add a condition like,

Previous Triggered Event's Status is Settled

in the swithing trigger?

I didn't realise that would be a problem but I'll sort that now.
Hopefully that'll be it.
Cheers

Just an idea I am not sure!

In my trigger that is swithing between test -and real-mode, I am using test_balance+uk_balance.
