This panel is presented to you each time function [F3] or [F4] is selected in score entry. It is used to award specific scores to both the North-South and East-West pairs on the current entry.
Each field should contain a value between zero and 99 percent. If you do not wish to proceed with the explicit score press [Esc] to return.
Enter the two percentages and press [Enter] or click [OK].
This score is treated differently depending on the scoring method chosen.
Match point scoring
With match point scoring the North-South and East-West pairs receive the match points equivalent to the percentage of the top score. During the match pointing of the rest of the scores on the board, this entry is considered an AVERAGE SCORE.
When this panel is selected using [F3] the pairs are awarded explicit percentages including decimals of match points, rounded to one decimal place.
Where this panel was selected with the function [F4], the nearest whole match points to the requested percentage are awarded to the pairs.
With IMP scoring methods (e.g. Butler) the North-South and East-west pairs receive the IMPs awarded rather than a percentage. There is no meaning to a percentage in this scoring method. The screen still refers to the entered scores as a %, as the ASE Scorer has no idea what scoring method you may choose at the time you score up.
When this panel is selected using [F3], North-South and East-West pairs receive the difference in the awarded scores. Therefore if NS is awarded 15 and EW 35 then NS will receive -20 and EW +20.
Where this panel was selected with the function [F4], the North-South and East-West pairs receive the awarded scores. Therefore if NS is awarded 15 and EW 35 then NS will have 15 added to their score and EW 35.
