Getting Started
Below is information regarding important settings, both in TASHK and Game Reports (Windows).

TASHK
Once you have completed your regular setup, please take the following steps:

  1. In the "Game setup" menu, select Remote display
  2. Select Connect and then hit Enter on the keyboard
  3. Return to the "Game setup" menu

Once you have gone through these steps, save your game. After saving, open Game Reports (Windows).

GAME REPORTS (WINDOWS)
This is where you will identify the game for which XML files will be sent and enter the necessary settings to direct TASFTP - telling it to send XML files (as opposed to HTML) and where to send them. Here are the steps:

Game Reports Screen Example | Live Setup Screen Example

  1. Click the Games List button in the upper left
  2. Select the appropriate game and click OK
  3. Go to the "Live" menu, select Live setup and enter/check the following:

    FTP SETTINGS
    Activate: Check
    GameTracker ID: Enter the game ID number. The ID number is the six- or seven-digit number located in the GameTracker URL. You no longer need to enter ID- before the number. There are two ways to find the ID number for a game:

      1. Mouse over the GameTracker link wherever it may be found on your site (front page event listing, schedule page, etc.). When you mouse over the link, the URL will appear in a window just above your task bar. Here is an example of what the URL will look like (a portion of the URL):

      http://www.texassports.com/gametracker/launch?event=1001947

      2. Each school/conference has its own web page in which all GameTracker URLs created for a particular season are aggregated. You can find your URLs by clicking the appropriate link below and then clicking on your school code. If you are unsure of your school code, please contact your Managing Editor.

      Find My Men's Ice Hockey URLs | Find My Women's Ice Hockey URLs

    Auto-send FTP: Check (also check the XML option)
    FTP Site: ftp.netitor.com
    User ID: fanslive
    Password: Please check with your Managing Editor
    Target directory: schoolcode/sportcode (ex: msu/m-hockey; bost/w-hockey)

    XML OUTPUT
    Enable XML stats feed: Check
    XML gameid: schoolcode (ex: msu)

    OTHER SETTINGS
    Show stats on screen: Check

4. After entering/checking the appropriate information/boxes, click OK.

After clicking OK, you will see your box score appear in the "Game Reports" window. Additionally, TASFTP will send the initial file that you have set up (the result of Activating). You do not need to "Initialize live files."

You are now ready to go! After entering your first play, TASFTP will open in the background, move down to your task bar and then disappear once it's done sending the game file. You will also see your "Game Reports" box score update.
