Hi, I'm a newbie, won't deny. I've been searching for help on this subject for days, so please forgive if this has been asked before. I have Casino Verite 5.5 and want to use AceFive counting. That strategy is not included. I've emailed the CV guy, no answer. I PM'd a guy on this forum who had asked the same question, he's decided to use reKO.

Just want a little help with the settings in CV.

Thanks,

MaChWi

It looks like Casino Verite is commercial software. That's a shame. If it were opensource, it would probably not be a big deal to add additional counting systems to it. With it being commercial (and fairly expensive, at that), there isn't usually much that can be done, especially without developer assistance.

Is there any opensource alternative that you would consider? I kinda doubt whether anything good exists, though (otherwise why charge ninety bucks?), but I'm just guessing here. My experience with opensource game software is limited to Go and Chinese chess, so I really don't know what's out there as far as blackjack counting is concerned. But if you could find something free with reasonable documentation, you could use whatever counting system you might devise, which could be fun.

Try http://www.blackjackforumonline.com/. I just know this software exists. I have not used it. Scroll down page-it is on the left.

Hot stuff. Never would have guessed there was something like that out there in opensource. Stagnant since 2007 but looks like they left good documentation behind. Now if the OP will agree that s/he can live with this software, we'll see what's under the hood (developer site unfortunately doesn't even seem to say what language it's written in, but hey, opensource).

It is a nice find.
It is in XBasic and I currently use it with no complaints. I am not a pro coder by any means.
The updated instructions is dated 3/2011

Everything is free, excellent documentation and there is a little learning curve on how he set up the code, but once you get past that, it is quite easy to use and to add different .str (player strategy files)
Of course QFIT has nothing good to say about this program since he sells his own.

Heard back from the CV guy. He said pg. 69 of the manual shows you how to setup KO which he says is very similar to A-5.

Glad to hear it -- nothing beats good developer support, and at the price he's asking, I'd expect it. Nice to learn about the opensource alternative, too, if you wanna get creative and test out your own systems (although it sounds like you might be able to do that with what you've got).

Thanks so much for getting back to us. A lot of people ask a question with their first post and then drop off the face of the earth. (Happens on most message boards.)
