WinBowl 2.0 is available for download here. It is functionally identical to, and compatible with Winbowl 1.8.9, but the user interface has changed, to take advantage of some of the changes that have happened over the years to Micro$oft and their compilers.
I am no longer charging a registration fee. You and your league are free to use it. All I ask is that at the end of the season, a small donation is made to me as a thank you. 1p or 1.5 cents per person per match does not seem extortionate as a rough guide, but feel free to round it to the nearest pound, US dollar, Australian dollar or Euro. I offer this as a guide only. It does mean I am not tied to the nearest Internet cafe every 24 hours when on holiday to make sure I respond promptly to registrations, and also will not have to keep reminding people of their registration details then they get a new computer. It may also mean that Winbowl will continue to provide me with an upgrade to my computer each year.
I will continue to support it and fix bugs as long as I live, and have the mental capability do to so, which I hope will be for very many years.
I have written this version in a way that will allow foreign language versions to be produced, so if anybody wishes to have a French, German, Italian, Spanish or any other language version, get in touch with me and I will supply a file of phrases to be translated, et voila, a foreign language version of Winbowl 2.0 will be available.
P.S. I Have created a Facebook group for Winbowl users. Hopefully, you will be able to help each other over issues you may have. It is a public group so please feel free to join. I shall keep an eye on it.
When donating, please enter your league name, and I may create a 'Roll of Honour' displaying them all.
