Help with Norm Pollock's namelist

Post by Tony Thomas » Mon Feb 11, 2008 4:53 am

I finally found a tool that would sort players by their name alphabetically with elo rating. It is a commandline tool called name list by Norm Pollock, but the console window exits immediately without giving me any warnings. I tried dependency walker, it said that I was missing dwmapi.dll, so I put that in the C:\windows\system directory and the darn thing still doesnt work.

Any help appreciated
Tony

Hi Tony,

Don't double-click on 'nameList.exe', instead open a
dos/command line window in the folder where namelist
resides and type command by hand - namelist.exe

This procedure is the same for all of Norm's pgn tools.

rgds,
Jim.

Thanks Jim, if you hadnt told me, I would have never figured that out. I got everything working fine...Now it would be much easier for me to create a rating list without any double entries. Only if I can find a tool that would automatically assign rankings to an edited list...

Hi Tony,

If the elos are already in the pgn file, then just use "ratelist" from my collection.

If there aren't any elos present, you can create them using either "elostat 1.3" or "bayeselo".

If you use "elostat 1.3", then follow that up with "embed" from my pgn tool collection. You will get the elos embedded into the output file. Then use "ratelist" on the output file. You will get an edited ranking list which includes elos.

If you prefer "bayeselo" instead of "elostat 1.3", use "embayes" instead of "embed", and then use "ratelist".

Output file names and fuller directions are in the readme.txt.

Hey Norm, I didnt have any rating tags embedded. I was mainly looking for something that would alphabetically arrange the engine name so that I could delete the versions that arent strongest from my rating list and post a short list. I am getting used to your tools, they are quite nice, I am thinking about using embayes.

Sorry. I can't help. I never use any of Norm's tools.
