New Showing System!

← Back to News

We officially have our new showing system in place!

I have added in a new sorting option for Auto-Showing: "Soonest". This will choose the shows which run the soonest so that you can hopefully get your show results sooner.

All shows created from this moment on will have a 24 hour countdown timer and will appear in the shows list (almost) immediately. Shows will be removed from the list when the countdown runs out, or when the show reaches 15 entries. The shows which are removed from the list will run within 15 minutes.

Stable owners can now only create a maximum of 200 "active" shows. This means that as soon as their timer runs out, or the show has run because it has reached 15 entries, stable owners can create more shows. It is intended to be a more dynamic show creation system. Let's see how it goes :P

There are a couple of small, temporary issues.

1) I am using a new way to store the prize pool for shows, so it will show incorrect amounts for shows that were created before today. For this reason, I will be disabling sorting shows by prize pool until they sort themselves out.
2) Shows will not be able to run every 15 minutes until today's shows have cleared up. I will aim to have the new showing system running properly at around midday EV time. In the mean time, shows can be entered. They just won't run at their expected time today (e.g. if you enter a show that runs in 4 minutes from this news post, it won't run until later).


I expect there will be some bugs throughout the day, so I will be around to hopefully fix them.

Please make sure to report bugs in the news comments or on the Bug Board!

Edit: I have created some filler shows for every grade past the Novices to help out with some members being unable to create new shows until their old shows clear.

Show search doesn't appear to be working. I selected driving then clicked search, but it still shows all shows.

Thanks, Abbey!

To confirm, are horses still only to gain stats for win-place in a show with at least 5 entries?

Sonoma, yes it's still a 5 entry minimum for stat gains.

Ulysses, it appears I haven't allowed for any grade with a specific discipline. I'll fix that - in the mean time try selecting both a grade and a discipline and it should work :)

Scratch that, it ended up being a really easy fix - should be working now :P

I'm a little confused, but I may be doing something wrong. When I go to create my shows, it says I have 0 available to create. However, when I go and look at the shows I have that are active and waiting to run, it says I only have 60. If we're allowed 200 shows, shouldn't I still have 140 available to create?

^ It's still based on your arena numbers. Show creation is just capped at 200 if you can make more than 200 shows.

Also I dunno if it's just me but I keep getting told there's no shows for my horses when it says there are shows of that level running in the next 24 hours. I created some myself at the level I needed and it let me enter right away.

I'm having the same problem as Maple and Sonoma with having no shows available to enter. However I've noticed that I only have that issue with my L2 and up horses if that helps. I was able to enter all my Novice horses and my L1 horses, but not anything higher.

I'm excited about this new showing system!

However, I, too am having difficulties with entering shows. Keeps saying there are no shows to enter my horses in (whether it be via auto-show or manually entering).

I'm personally not experiencing this - could you give me the exact error message and let me know what combinations of specialty/grade you're trying to enter?

It just says there are no shows to the horse in.

I'm like 90% sure it's not showing previously created shows. Shows that are created today can be entered. I couldn't enter any L1 Racing before until I created my own L1 Racing shows. I couldn't enter any R4 or R5s before but I can now. L1-R2 seems to be a problem for me in the Racing area.
