7.1 Simulate a Race with Timing & Scoring

1) Prepare Timing & Scoring

2) Set up a (test) race

3) Perform live test

1. Prepare Timing & Scoring

Set up Timing & Scoring, create all your locations and files

Add exporter and click TCP / IP Exporter

Click small Gear icon to open the Plug-In Settings for TCP/IP Exporter window 

Enter live-ingress.sporthive.com in the IP-address / hostname field

Keep 3097 in the ports field

Ensure Auto Reconnect and Export Markers are both checked

Enter the CMS Credentials (can be found in CMS under Config > Timer set up) in username and password fields

2. Set up a (test) race

Go to https://eventcms.sporthive.com

Create at least one (test) race

Import (or draw) a course for this race

Create at least two timelines within that race

  • Make sure the location names in Timing&Scoring match with the timeline names in the EventCMS

Add at least one test participant, click Race > Race name > Registrations > Add Registration

  • Enter an ID, bib and chipcode
  • First Name / Last Name
  • Gender (if you would like to verify Leaderboard as well)

Setup T&S credentials

 

Before you can start a test event you need to ensure everything is configured correctly. You can do this in the Event CMS Config Timer Setup.

Go to Live Tracking

Search for your test participants

 

Now you’re ready for the real test :-)
