Sorry, I didn't quite understand that. I mean that all programs use such a tournament manager. And not just programs that have dxp and can use
hub. Because it may be that some of the best programs will use and the rest of the programs will not.
Yes I meant that too. I cannot speak for the other programmers but hub is on my to do list for Maximus. I don't know when I have time for this, probably not before the next tournament. Hopefully we will get a snowball effect like in chess, where it also took time before it became the standard.

JJ, hope all have hub soon, it would motivate me to really work on the Tournament Manager in the Damage GUI.
See screenshot, which is still work in progress.
