You can choose how the IBEScore app should display things according to your taste.
Before or During a Game?
Click on the Icon then “Global settings” on the start screen of the app.
They can also be accessed during a game by tapping the IBEicon then “Settings”, followed by “More settings”.
- Brightness: You can ask IBEScore to run at a lower screen brightness to conserve battery life. This option only applies to duplicate mode.
- Screen orientation (Android only): You can set the screen to automatically change between portrait and landscape mode based on the gravity sensor, or you can fix it in portrait mode, or in landscape mode.
- Display results as: You can decide whether to show overtricks/undertricks (eg 4H N -1) or trick count (4H N 9 tricks)
- Exactly made contracts: Whether to represent a “making” contract as a tick mark or an equals sign.
- Analysis: When a mathematical analysis of a hand is presented, you can choose whether to show the number of available tricks (eg NS can make 9 tricks in hearts), or the level of contract (eg NS can make 3 hearts). In the latter case, if fewer than 7 tricks are available, a dash will be shown. This option only applies to duplicate mode.
- Assume device-for-table: This option is for organiser-owned devices only. For player-owned devices, this should be “No”.
- My default name: You can ask IBEScore to remember your name, so that when you specify your seat (N, S, E or W) in the reception screen, IBEScore will immediately assign your name to the player in that seat.
- My default E-mail: This option is for the paid-for version of the app, IBEScore Electronic Bridge Score, only. IBEScore uses this E-mail as the suggested destination when you export your scorecard.
Global settings are saved onto your device, not to the cloud. They do not affect any other devices in the duplicate game you are playing. They will persist even if you close or kill the app.
If you uninstall the app, your global settings will be deleted. If you install the app on a new device, the new device will not know about your old device’s global settings.
