setting up the match

In the sample below we are going to use a 5 players team playing all 5 legs pr set/match.
Since I start from scratch, I will have to start by adding the 10 players, 5 for each team, to the database. The easiest and most convenient way is to use the "speed registering" option to add the players and then we switch to the screen where we add the single players to the teams.
adding the team names
We start by opening the speed registration screen.

Click the button with the "+" (1) to add the two team names to the database.
It is very straight forward to add the teams, select a flag or logo (otional), set the team name and the short name and then click the "Save" button. To add the second team, click the "New" button and repeat the steps, click the "Done" button when done.

Add team two...

adding the players
Select the the first team and then add the 5 players, one by one. To add a player, enter the players full name, press the ENTER key to save. Repeat the steps for the next four players, swith to the second team and then add the 5 players who is going to be used for the second team.

The first 5 players added to the database...

All 10 players added to the database...

setting up the team - order of play
We are now ready to setup the team, or order of play if you like. Open the Add players and teams screen from the "Tools" menu as shown below.

Switch to "Super League" mode and then set the number of players pr. team to 5.

It doesn't matter what team we start with, but you must of course know the order of play before you can start adding players to the teams. To start adding players, double click any the two players who is going to play first and DfW will automatically set the team name for you, no need to select any of the team names before you start adding players. Please note that you can also drag and drop the players into any of the boxes, you don't have to do it in the correct order (1,2,3 and so on). When you double-click, the player is put into the first available order/box, that is the difference between drag and drop and double-click.
Please note that the team filter is set as soon as you start adding players to a team, this makes it a lot easier to add the players. When done adding players from one team, click the "Save" button (the button with the diskette) to save the team and the filter will be turned off. To manually turn off the team filter, double-click the filter (the box with the team name above the list of players).

Team two...

Now we have two 5 player teams in the database and we are ready to start the match. You can of course edit/replace a player in any of the teams by clicking one of the teams in the list (as shown below) and then replace one or more players by dragging and dropping a player into any of the boxes. Don't forget to save the team after you have replaced one or more players.

start the match
Open the match setup screen by pressing the key combination CTRL-N or from the link in the upper left corner or from the "File > New Match" menu.

Set the configuration to "Super League", check the "Show total legs won" box below the configuration dropdown box, set the number of players pr. team to 5, check the "Play all legs" if you are playing all legs in the set/match and then select the home and away team by clicking the left and right list of available teams.
