Update - Sets and Draws added!

DartMan has been updated, with the major change being the ability to play sets of x number of legs, as well as the ability to play 'Best Of' x number of legs, rather than just 'First To'. This will allow draw results to be possible, which opens the way for adding tournaments/leagues, which is on the horizon.

The changes in this release are:


  • Introduced/enabled the ability to play Set Games
  • Introduced the ability to draw games, by using the 'Best Of' option, instead of 'First To'.
    • This is only applicable to 'Best of' leg games (not sets).
    • Also, this currently does not apply to online games (but will shortly)
  • Improved further the automatic configuration of network ports for online play via UPnP

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug which meant that when a user clicked the Logout button on the Connect tab, the online client remained running.
  • Fixed a bug where when an online web cam game completed, DartMan was still trying to receive remote web cam video from the other player.
  • The link for downloading the PDC Darts Demo installation (which contains the caller out sounds) in the Sounds Options tab is now working.

Website Updates

The DartMan website has also been updated, to handle the display of set games, and draws:
  • The Recent Results list shows the score with 'Legs' or 'Sets' to indicate the match type
  • The Games List page now shows:
    • 'Legs' or 'Sets' to indicate the match type
    • If a result is a draw, it displays this
DartMan will automatically update to the latest version the next time it is launched. Please provide feedback in the comments below, or via the Contact page on the website.
