The Display module is meant to replace Current standing. Both will continue working parallel to each other for quite some time for those of you who want to continue using Current standing.

Download Display files and view preview samples further down on this page.

For more details, please refer to the Documentation section of this website. Both the documents about Display and Current standing are useful to read.

Internet browsers

The resulting .htm files work in all browsers. However, there are drawbacks to using Internet Explorer since some features do not work properly. Please use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox for best possible result.

Download MCY files

Display files that Magic Contest imports have the file extention .mcy. Downloading such files can cause different kinds of problems depending on what internet browser is used.

To solve that problem, all Display files are "zipped", i.e. placed inside a .zip file. The way to download and use such a file is the following:

Option A - Save the ZIP file

  • Click the MCY link
  • Save the .zip file in a suitable folder on your computer
  • Locate the folder
  • Move the .zip file to Magic Contest Documents\Display

Option B - Save the MCY file (which allows you to make changes)

  • Click the MCY link
  • Save the .zip file in a suitable folder on your computer
  • Locate the folder and double-click the .zip file to open it
  • Drag the .mcy file to Magic Contest Documents\Display

Now you can continue according to the documentation to select the .mcy file in Magic Contest.

Pre-defined Display files

Please, no more information. I really just want to download files.

Some Display files have a dimension suffix such as 1024x768 or 1920x1020 whereas other reports have no such suffix.

If there are too many names on the non-suffixed reports, they just show all names on one page, which may or may not fit the screen it is shown one, and then every 15 seconds it scrolls down in order to show all names. This unfortunately hides the title and the row headers which is far from optimal.

The reports with the dimension suffix are tailor-made for just that size. This means that only so many names show on one page. When the 15 seconds have passed, the page changes into a completely new page with the next interval of pairs to be shown.

The obvious drawback with the dimensioned reports is that a design for one size does not work optimally on another size. That is just how it is.

Each Display comes in five different versions that each corresponds to the available visual profiles in Magic Contest. As the development of the Display module progresses, those visual profiles may change a litte, or new visual profiles may be added.
