Test and live mode interaction
« on: Tue, 23 January, 2018, 21:25 »
Here's an interesting one!
I am running 2 instances of marketfeeder on the same PC, one in live mode, the other in test mode.
This evening the live one made a lay bet. I then noticed that the bet had 'disappeared'. Upon investigation I realised that it had been cancelled by the test mode instance from a 'cancel then lay' trigger.
I have been running like this for a few days with no problems but tonight changed the 'hide real bets' selection so that they were now being shown. I changed this back so that real bets were hidden and the problem went away.

Yep, that's basically what this option is for. Glad you sorted it out.

Maybe I didn't desxribe it very well but a 'live' bet was cancelled by a trigger running on a separate instance of the application running in test mode. Surely anything that happens in test mode shouldn't affect the live system..?

The program can differentiate between test and real bets and manipulate them accordingly (i.e. cancel or update), even if it is running in Test Mode.

So just to be clear a trigger running in test mode can cancel a real bet...?

Yes, that's right.

In Test Mode all your bets -- both real and test -- are combined to give you the whole picture, otherwise once your trigger attempted to cancel a real bet, and if it still stayed there in the program, the trigger essentially would have to keep cancelling it over and over, right? This would entail a lot more confusion.

So you either hide real bets altogether, or you treat them like any other bet.
