Hi all!

Because some professional "problems" (F*** crisis!), I might be away from this place for... quite some time.

Before I leave, I'd like to finish a tool for practicing card counting I put on my website. It's an adaptation for the Web of an old software I coded a long time ago. I just need some of you to test it:

http://www.arnoldmcdonald.org/code/main.php?p=6600000

It would be of great help if you report something wrong, if you notice a bug, etc. I can add other counting systems if you want, or others parameters as well. Just tell me. Of course, as I'm a bit in a hurry, there is no help explanations, but I'll add some later. If you have practiced card counting, you should understand everything easily though.

Thanks for your help boys!

Hi my friends!

2 guys asked me whether I could add other counting systems or not to that page. Hey, why not? Revere RAPC and Revere APM. I'll do that as soon as I can. Do you want other systems?

BTW, thanks to the soon 1,000 people having already played with that script!

Done.

New counting systems added:

Revere APC,
Revere APM,
Revere 14C.

Ask me if you want more systems.

Good luck (I just can't believe some people use Wong Halves system...)!

Not solved at all, but I appreciate your kind words.

About the website, it's going very slowly but I'll add many tools and articles next year. The main problem for me is to (re)code software for Internet that I coded years and years ago for Windows (or even MS-DOS). Which is not really sexy or fun to do Smile. Furthermore, much of the material is for research only and I'm not convinced many people would be interested to play with 20 parameters scripts for spelunking card shuffling...

Ahh, I see what you mean. Still, Who knows... Some of the folks around here may enjoy those scripts! Ah well, it's an awesome resource nonetheless.

Cheers,

Hi my friends!

To celebrate the new year 2012 I have updated the "Card Counting" tool (works now with Opera and Internet Explorer) and... I have added a new one: "Basic Strategy Chart Generator"!

Basically, it provides tables of actions according several parameters: does the dealer stand or hit on soft 17? Does the dealer peek his second card or no? etc. I don't release the full script here, but I think that all the conditions you may meet in standard casinos are covered.

The next tool will probably be the one I use to fill these tables, well, we'll see Smile.

As usual, feel free to tell me any bug you find out or don't hesitate to ask me for any improvement.

Maybe you'd want to consider adapting your basic strategy tool to work with the counting tool. It would make more sense that if someone selects a counting strategy, the relevant indices should appear in the strategy chart.

@splice,

I understand but it would make sense only in a simulator, i.e., you play a "real" game (the tools should take into account bettings, many players, strategy charts, statistics, etc.).

Why not, but it's a lot of work...

Putting a 0 instead of H for 16vT with Hi-Lo counting selected shouldn't be complicated and doesn't require any kind of simulation of play to do. If this is meant for card counting, it would be helpful to those who are looking for instruction in that area to have an accurate strategy chart for the appropriate count.

Of course after playing with the chart quickly, I realize there is enough missing from it that you'd need to work on it some more before thinking about strategy deviations, so I guess it's not that important.

Arnold, you are clearly knowledgeable about programming. You should put your efforts toward something that hasn't already been done dozens, if not hundreds of times before. Just a thought.

Hi Nicholas!

Hundreds of times? Let's be honest, I can name myself 4 or 5 similar scripts, but hundreds... maybe you're overacting a bit Smile.

Actually, my goal is to put dozens of scripts related with cards and Gambling on my website. It's just the beginning of that project, so, obviously, I start with the very classics: currently BlackJack and soon Poker. Nothing really new, I know, and you're right, other people have done it before. But little by little, I'll put more serious ones. And eventually there will be an interesting collection, all in one same place.

Trust me my friend, I have hundreds of old scripts to put online. Hundreds. But it takes time because it's been coded a long time ago and it's not compatible with Internet. Besides, it's not always easy to choose which technology I ought to use, javascript, ajax, flash, java, javafx, air? That's why I'm a bit slow Smile.

Maybe you don't know it but there are already scripts with no equivalent on the Internet on the website (for instance here, for Faro shuffling addicts: http://www.arnoldmcdonald.org/code/main.php?p=6400000)

Now, I'm of course all ears in case someone has got any good suggestion! If you have good ideas, man, feel free to tell me!
