The placer is controlled directly by the main application and launched/exited as needed. The placer's executable is the file "betplacer.exe" which is located in the application's main folder.
The most common reasons for the placer remaining offline are:
If you cannot login to your gmail account, you may have to enable access at https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps. Even if you enable the previous setting, your connection to gmail will still be encrypted, provided that you connect to port 993 of imap.gmail.com.
Also, if you are trying to connect from a new IP, such as a VPS/VPC, you may need to login manually to gmail through a browser and complete any verification that google might require.
Check also your emails for a message from google, where they may say that they have blocked access from the new IP, until you confirm that you are the owner of the account and you are indeed the one using the new IP.
The scraper is controlled directly by the main application and launched/exited as needed. The placer's executable is the file "betscraper.jar" which is located in the application's main folder.
The scraper requires the java runtime environment to be installed on your PC. You can install java by running the included file jxpinstall.exe or you can download from www.java.com
You will need to change your Windows settings so that the decimal symbol is represented with the character "." and the digit grouping symbol with the character ",".

The system is trying to match picks to actual events in bookmakers based on the team names provided by the tipster and the team names used by the book.
Often, a tipster will use a different team name than the one used by the book, for example a pick could be submitted on "ROMA - NAPOLI", while the bookmaker has "AS ROMA - NAPOLI".
The event matching algorithm is using a custom database of team name variations and mappings, it knows, for example, that "AS ROMA" = "ROMA'.
However, there is a possibility that an event cannot be mapped to the corresponding bookmaker event in cases such as a typo mistake or using an ambiguous or non-standard team name, or if the database mapping is missing from our side. In these cases, the order's status will be set to "EVENT NOT FOUND".
Although the mapping database contains 1000's of team name variations for almost all sports and leagues, it is possible that there could be missing mappings especially for lower leagues. In this case, please report the missing mapping so that it can be included in the database.
