Program Info

We at ACAPsoft are big fans of fighting games, especially the Soul Calibur series. We feel that to enjoy these games to its fullest you should change your character regularly, but the random feature in Soul Calibur seems to favour certain characters, and we do not like some of the characters anyway. At first we tried various methods to get around this problem (moving over the character select screen like a chess knight was the most interesting idea) but eventually we decided the answer was obvious; write our own random routine.

Versus can be configured for almost any One on One competition, including non computer ones, by simply editing the configuration file. In addition to showing the next selection, there is display of a few of the previous bouts. Versus can be set to prevent repeat selections, and also to prevent mirror matches. It is also possible to prioritise some selections over others.

Installation

Run "Setup.exe" and follow the instructions. To remove Versus, use the "Add/Remove Programs" option in the Control Panel. Versus stores all its data files in the designated application data area, often "C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\ACAPsoft\Versus". If you would prefer that it saves in the same directory as Versus either run the program from a removable drive, such as a floppy of a USB drive, or delete the "DefSet.txt" file from the Versus directory.

Use

Versus comes ready for use with Soul Calibur IV (and with Soul Calibur II and III names entered but not enabled), but it is an easy matter to change. Open up Versus and press the "About" button to show the "About" window. Select "Prog Dirs" from the selection box at the bottom, press "Open Dirs" and then close Versus after the two folder windows open. In the folder window that does not have "Versus.exe" in it open the Versus.txt file. This is just a plain text file and you simply add any names you want to the list, up to a total of 1000. Any name is OK providing it has less than 100 characters, although long names will be clipped in the main view. If there is a name you wish to temporally disable simple add "#" in front of it. You can also prioritise some selections over others by simply adding more than one copy of the name. There must be a carriage return (enter) after the last name. When finished simply save the file and reload Versus.

Once the configuration file is finished you are ready to rumble. Simply press the "Go" button to select the next bout. To view a list of the previous matches press the "More" button and the window will expand. (The list shows a maximum of approximately 5000 selections. When this is exceeded then the start of the list is progressively erased.) Also shown when the window is expanded is the selection options. These allow you to enable/disable mirror matches (as in select the same name for both sides) and to enable/disable repeating. If you want a list fast you can press the "10 More" or "100 More" buttons, and you can use the "Copy" function for a one-button copy to the clipboard.

System Impact Statement

We go to great lengths to reduce system impact, but we feel that it is still important to explain here what our programs do to your system. If you feel we are missing something, or you need further clarification, please contact us.

RegistryVersus does not uses the registry. The installer that comes with Versus uses the registry only for the required un-installation data, and not at all if you use the "Extract Only" mode.
System SettingsVersus does not change any system settings.
FilesAll program files are stored in the installation directory, and all data files are stored in the designated application data area, often "C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\ACAPsoft\Versus". If you would prefer that it saves in the same directory as Versus either run the program from a removable drive, such as a floppy of a USB drive, or delete the "DefSet.txt" file from the Versus directory. These directories can be opened via the About box.
NetworkVersus does not need to access the network. The installer does not access the internet in any way, but the ReadMe does have three graphic files that are stored on the internet. (They are not used as web-beacons, merely spacers and images for the payment processors.)
CPUVersus does not have any CPU demanding functions.
MemoryVersus has no major memory requirement.

Programmers Notes

This program was written for the purpose that it does. Nothing more, nothing less. Even so, if you think that it needs a bit more then please send me your ideas. Remember though that I want it to remain small and free. Thus anything complicated probably will not happen.
