Hi, not sure if this is the right board for such questions, but while searching I've seen Ion responding to posts here, so I'm assuming it would be appropriate :)

I've recently started getting into lottery software in general, and specifically I've come across Ion's site.  There's a lot of info there, which I'm still digesting, but I've dived in and grabbed the "pick632" bundle to experiment with.

The documentation is a little sparse, but I've found a lot of my questions answered by searching saliu.com.  However, I still have a couple of questions that I can't find answers to re: WHEEL632;

- I figured out how to get Wheel632 to work with a LEAST6 file, but does it also support BEST6 and LEAST6 together?  If so, how would the data file be configured (eg, BEST6+LEAST6+DATA-6 or LEAST6+BEST6+DATA-6)?  What value would I have to change in my strategy file to accomodate that (similar to the first row-2nd number modification in the file for LEAST6 alone)?

- from reading, I understand the selection of filters is a personal thing and requires some testing on my part to see what works, but is there a quick summary of what all the filters mean/do in my W6 files?  I've found some info via searching on some of them, but so far what I've found is a little disjointed and/or outdated.

Thanks in advance!!

    Here is some info on filters:


    Best6 option does not work in Pick632:


    Least6 file goes on top of your D6 file:




    Also, remember not to run winning reports on data files with Least6.

      The filters basically are used to eliminate combinations.  When you set a filter max or min, you filter out several combinations.

      Try downloading his MDIEditor and Lotto WE program and read the lottery tutorial.  It is very well written.

      The way to make the filters work is to look for very large or very small filter values as compared to the median.  These rare occurances produce very few combinations.  Try Three1max=1 or Four1max =1.  They dont happen very often, but when they do, your odds are unbelieveably better.

      I hope this helps.
