Well Lantern, Lotto Architect is written in Delphi.

As for the workings of the program, it may be hard to understand because it works completely different to other software, so you have to grasp the new logic it introduces. The logic is universal as much as possible. What I mean by that? As an example, for the filters part, all filters are treated the same way, so as long as you know how to setup a filter and use it, you automatically know how to setup all the included 700+ filters available. Among those filters are some very advanced (those mentioned as [c]-xxx) which bring filtering to a new level. So, the simple question is: how to setup and use a filter.

1) Open the rejection filters window. At the left pick the filter category you want to use. When you pick a category, the display changes and the grid shows various filters related to that category. For example, if you select "sums", the grid will display in its columns the various available sum filters. What each filter is and works can be found at the help file. So, by picking "sums" on the top-left, let's assume you want to setup the "total sum" filter. This filter is reflected at the 1st column in the grid (says Total on top). The other columns as already mentioned reflect other types of sums, which you can use of course if you want.

2) In order to set the filter to your liking (do it manually), you have to set at the left "algorithm selection=custom/user" and table formation = Yes/No. Only in this mode (custom/user & Yes/No), you are allowed to change the settings of a filter. The other modes (algorithms) do this automatically for you. A backtesting is also available for those algorithms so to have an idea how well an algorithm performs in rejecting values, so to use it instead of doing this by yourself. So, once in custom/user mode, just click on the grid and set the 1st column to your liking. The values at the left reflect the sum. You set a cell to Yes/No meaning accept/reject that sum during filtering. You can quickly setup a range too: select the range and right-click and select "set selected range to> ...". Other options are available by right-clicking which can assist you in the setup too. The help file also explains all these and how to use them.

3) Once you have prepared your filter, you have to save it so to be used. Just have a highlighted cell in the 1st column (this tells the program that you want to create the filter of the 1st column), and click at the left-bottom "create". If you select more than one column, the program will succesivelly create all the filters highlighed. Also note the session number which by default is 1, which means the filter will be saved in session 1. Sessions are a way to organize your filters so to be applied in one step. So, by clicking create, you enter a name for the filter(s) and you have finally created it. So to actually verify it has been created, just open the rejection manager window and you should see in session 1 the created filter with a green cirle next to it (which means it is active).

4) Time to use this filter. Rejection filters are involved at stage 3 calculations, so open stage 3 calculations, pick the session 1 you have created the filter in (it should be picked by default) and click calculate. By default, Lotto Architect filters down from the whole possible tickets available. If you have saved a ticket listing at a previous calculation stage, you can use that instead. Finally, if you feel happy with the filtering process, you have to save the outcome in a ticket listing. Since you are at stage 3 calculations, you can save it as a "rejection filters" ticket listing (click save tickets to do so).

So, the next time you'll open a calculation window (stage 2 & 3 only, stage 1 is called a generator stage and it doesn't have ticket listings as inputs), you can continue filtering down from the previously saved ticket listing. This is all needed to use a filter.

For every other filter, the process is exactly the same. Keep in mind that you can filter at once with all the active filters (having a green circle) which reside in one session in one step. This is what sessions do.

cheers

Thanks a lot!

It was very nice of you making that post!

No news yet about your new Lottery Games Predictor (GAT)?

You know that you could also make filtered wheelers of the kind of SkorLoto, so long as the programs and their code are not exactly the same, they are very heavy on GUI graphics, but you should see that they have a lot of good filters, Skorloto is not your run of the mill filtered wheeler, It has a lot of good filters functions and could have even more yet, it is all a matter of menus and windows, on a window more windows can open up, graphics don't have to be restricted by the amount of space on the desktop, sure a lot of graphics might  make the program "heavier" on bytes, slower and eat more ram also maybe, but it might make it easier for people to use it also and it might allow to put more functions into the program.

As much as Skorloto already has, it can stil use much more and besides we don't all have 6,49 games.

A more universal version would be welcomed or at least 3 versions, one for cash 5 games, another for 5 + 1 games and a last one for regular pick 6 games, that would not cover all the games, but maybe more than half of them.

    Well, GAT will come out sometime but nothing to be announced yet about it.

    As for filtered wheelers, I have already Wheel Generator for this and all the tests I have performed against other software, it throws dust to them in terms of produced quality and winning outcome. It also introduces concepts not available elsewhere - what I call a dynamic wheel construction - which is what makes it top quality for what it is designed to do.

    As for a universal version, Lotto Architect already supports all forms of such games: cash 5, 5+1 lotto 6 etc. All these can be analysed and filtered by Lotto Architect, so it is already universal by that means. The real universal part of Lotto Architect is that as long as you know how to use it for a lotto 6 (for example), the same technics can be used for cash 5 or other games you may wish to play.

      why do people make such a big deal about wheels. I hope they only use them for pick 4 and up because a wheel is not needed for the pick 3 at all. looks like my study has paid off.

        I just read that and tried it, it sure helped a lot, but created more questions.

        I will have to read the help file.

        Well, I just learned how to save the generated combinations on a text file.

        Now I am getting some-where little by little.

        There is still much that I don't know, later I will read the help file again.

        Also I still don't yet know what many of the filters on LA are, once I know a lot more about LottoArchitect then I will know, if it is more advanced for the pick 3 game than the Sla---- or not.

        I myself don't yet see much benefit on automated filtration of patterns as might be done by LP other than what is done by the Hot-Cold-Due prediction engine, because that automated filtration might be kind of general and might just apply to all the past draws or to a range of them, it looks as if it is more static than anything, kind of like filtering out the low and the high sums a kind of band-pass filter, the low and the high sums filter combined, a static filter, good prediction technique does not work like that, it filters out only what appears to be the less likely patterns to come out for the very next draw and those less likely patterns change from one draw to the very next one, you don't always filter out the very same set of patterns, that is not good prediction technique.

        Not all filters programs are equal, of course.

        Prediction technique is the most important thing, second is a tool or tools that will allow you to use your prediction technique.

        You might know how to, but have no tools to do it with.

        Many people are faced with that problem.

        But I still think that the worse problem is corruption, when there is money in the balance and worse the more money that there is, Who controls the outcome of the draws? Random? I don't think so. Not all of the time and not completely, maybe even never and not at all.

        Whatever it takes to make sure of, "The House Always Wins", much better if by chance, of course, otherwise by any means possible.

        I don't trust those who run lotteries and never will either.

          I don't trust those who run lotteries and never will either.

          Well Lantern, the algorithms are not static at all. I'll give you as an example the delay algorithm which always evaluates to the current lottery history you have there (all algorithms actually evaluate what you ask them to evaluate), taking into account the latest draws you have, so if you introduce another new draw the prediction of the filters change as well to take into account the new information. Even the backtesting of the algorithms works the same way as the Hot-Cold-Due system's backtesting, meaning the program attempts to predict what to reject as if it was predicting for that particular draw the values to reject, therefore it is dynamic as well. Additionally, using the power of draw filters, you are free to analyse any part of the draw history (if you wish so, instead of using the whole draw history available), so to perform even more focused analysis, either at the Hot-Cold-Due system or at the rejection filters. This is a more advanced concept but reading the help file will give you information and ideas about these mechanisms (draw filters and designing your own algorithms). The real strength and what I'll include in LA 2.3 (when it will come out) is the so called error correction design which integrates all these powerful techniques under the same hood automatically and does everything in one click.

          cheers
