What is a Registration ID?
A Registration ID is a unique identifier for your PC or phone. This is required to obtain a licence key as a Total Cricket Scorer licence is linked to an individual device. The ID is 12 or 13 characters long on a PC and 15 characters on a mobile phone.
Where can I find my Registration ID?
On a PC
The Registration ID can be found in several places. The simplest way to find it is to look at the 'About Box'. You can launch this by either pressing the question mark in the top right hard corner of TCS or by going to the Help menu and pressing 'About TCS'.
The ID can also be seen when you run an unregistered version of TCS on the 'Demonstration Mode' box that appears on starting TCS. It can also be seen on the 'Activate Application' box when going to register the application as well at the 'Get Key' box when requesting a key.
On a Mobile Phone
Simply run the application and select About from the menu. This will display your Registration ID.

Why does my partnership report not show the coloured bars?
The lack of coloured bars printing is due to a setting in your web browser, as the images are HTML and Windows uses your browser to render and print these. If you use Internet Explorer, please launch it and then click Tools Internet Options, change to the Advanced tab and scroll down to the Printing section, and put a tick in the 'Print background colours and images' option. Once you click OK, TCS should then print the bars on the partnership report. (You may like to deselect this option again afterwards if you print from web pages regularly) .
Note: There is a bug in Internet Explorer 8 (
) that ignores this setting. Until Microsoft fix this you must use the Save As button on the Partnership report printing and save the html. Then open it and from the page setup select to 'Print Background Colors and Images'.
How do I use Play-cricket with TCS?
Go to the match menu, Play-cricket section.
First download the match. On this dialog you can search for the fixture and these settings will remain next time you download the game. At the bottom of the fixture list is a drop down allowing you to select players selected or registered league players. You can either begin scoring immediately or save the file for later.
If you start scoring, you are then presented with the new match wizard which will fill in the selected players etc.
If you have saved the file, you will need to go to the Play-cricket section and select import the fixture, when you begin scoring.
V6 now allows you to get the fixture and immediately pause the match.
Once the match is completed you can upload to play-cricket using the upload option. You will be warned if players are new to play cricket, these may be set to unsure on the play-cricket site, so it is worth looking there once you have uploaded.
