Possible issues with Win10

In May / June I became aware of possible issues when using QTournament with recent version of Windows 10. The problem occurs when trying to save the current tournament file. Saving might fail and the program displays an error message. The funny thing is that this problem occured only recently and affects an unmodified version of QTournament that used to run flawlessly before.

I’m still investigating the issue…

The preferred download is the AppImage. Simply download the file and mark it as executable (e.g., by right-clicking on the file and modifying its properties or by typing in chmod u+x QTournament-Linux-0.6.0.AppImage on the command line). Afterwards you can start the program by double-clicking on the AppImage file.

As an alternativ you can also download the ZIP archive. Unfortunately this approach has a high chance that some dependencies on other software libraries cause trouble and the software refuses to start. If you want to try it anyway: download and extract the ZIP archive in an empty folder and then run ./QTournament from the command line. Depending on your desktop environment, a double-click on the file QTournament could also be sufficient. For Linux, Qt >= 5.9 and Boost >= 1.65 need to be installed but this dependency should be fulfilled by default on all recent Linux systems.

The binaries are signed with the key 0xC9FCE88060CE05CE. The key has been uploaded to keys.openpgp.org which included a verification of the email address contained in the key (read: you can be sure that the key actually belongs to me 😉).

Download sources

The complete source code for QTournament is hosted on Github. For building your own QTournament binaries you also need three supporting libraries that are available on Github as well: LibSloppy, SqliteOverlay and SimpleReportGeneratorLib.

As you can guess fromt the library names, QTournament uses SQLite databases for storage, so you can view and potentially edit raw tournament data by opening QTournament files directly with SQLite.
