upgraded version link http://www.box.net/shared/ni4lguk3lx
This version includes simple databases for Power-ball and Mega-millions games and has a program that
allows the user to build more databases for any game. The database builder program is located in the
main folder and is called BUILDLP.EXE. Double click this file to build a new database but first you will
need a list of past draws. The Build program requires the same format as is used in the LP Lottery results.
Just copy and paste the sets into notepad. You need at least 10 drawings but can use as many as you want.
Next save the file, I normally name the files like RAW539.txt where the 539 describes the game matrix.
A 6-44 game would be named RAW644.txt. The file should look like the one below once you have copy and pasted
the draws. Note! save the file to the main program folder.
Now double click the BUILDLP.exe file to start the database builder.
First enter the value for how many numbers in each set or line and press enter
Next enter the value for how many numbers are in the matrix and press enter
The output file name will appear as DBXXX.txt where the XXX = the matrix as in my 5-39 it will be DB539.TXT
Now enter the name of the file that has the sets that you copy and pasted from LP Lottery results and press enter
Now you will be asked to review your inputs and type in A to accept or R to redue
You will now be asked to continue Y=yes N=no
If you Press Y then the program will build the new database, N will exit the build
Next press any key to exit the program.
Now the new database is ready to use. If you double click on the new file named DBXXX.TXT XXX = 539 for this
example the contents should look like the below.
Now run the main program and click [config]
Adjust the matrix settings for the game you just loaded and the database for that game will be loaded
automatically. Click [save & exit] to exit config and return to the main screen.
Now click [Stats]
You will now see the database for the loaded game
This is just a simple analysis that may help select a range for the next draw. I will try and add a more
advanced tool to this option as time allows
Updating the database. Click [Update]
This is very simple, Just make sure that you have the correct game loaded before updating. The program
no longer has the option to generate all the sets between the low/hi ranges but other then that it works
the same as the eariler version. You don't need to have a database for the program to run but if a matrix
is selected for which there is no database then the [UpDate] and [Stats] options are disabled. If you find
a bug then please post it and I will fix it. If you don't have a paid membership at LP which will allow you
to download the past draws I would like to encourage you to get at least a one month membership because
it only cost $4.95 per month for Gold. And, NO! I am not in cohoot's with the owner of this site in any way
and I hope I am not breaking any rules doing this. This was a way for me to write one program that can build
all the databases, 1 format, 1 program.
PS. If I made any mistakes here I will correct them when I see them or someone points them out.
