Tbrac-2006Tbrac-2006 R2 Standard promotes the best brackets, sidepot and informal tournament management software for XP and 2000. CDE uses its experience with bowling software (since 1975) to provide the sport of bowling with the best in bracket software. It's not only the best bracket software available, its the easiest to use.

Tbrac-2006 R2 Standard offers several different components, including brackets, sidepots, singles event tournaments and pro am tournaments. It's designed for less formal tournaments and use.

It's very simple to use the software. Add a person's name, enter the average to use for handicap purposes, assign a lane and then enter the bowler into any additional sidepots or brackets.

CDE Software and Tbrac-2006 R2 feature the best in bracket sidepot management, using a powerful randomization engine that assigns bowlers in a random and fair manner. Sure, you can set bracket assignments to be based on "as the dice is rolled", but in many cases, bowlers can be assigned multiple times to the same opponent. When there is a large enough field of bowlers, this can be perceived as unfair, causing bowlers to drop out. Tbrac-2006's uses a logical random method that minimizes or eliminates duplicate match-ups in brackets. In fact, Tbrac-2006 can optionally take some extra time and minimize duplicates in the cases that bowlers win the first game. This provides your bowlers a FAIR means of competition and better yet.... you don't have to do any extra work.

Important Notes About Discontinued Operating System:
No software company can effectively support any software for an operating system that the vendor is no longer selling, providing patches, addressing security issues, documenting or supporting. As of June, 2006, Microsoft officially dropped complete support for the Windows 98, Windows ME, and Windows NT operating systems.
Because of the added capabilities and Vista operating system support, this software will not function as designed with Windows 98, Windows ME and Windows NT, nor can be installed. If you have a system using these operating systems, upgrade the operating system to Windows 7, Windows  Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2008 Server, Windows 2003 Server or purchase a newer system with a supported operating system.

Frequently Asked Questions 

What's the difference between the full version, upgrade and updates?

Full version orders are for customers who are new to TBrac or who's last purchase was Tbrac-2006 or earlier.

Upgrades are for licensed customers (as listed in our customer database) and are the same thing as a full version, except the price is discounted appropriately to reward loyal customers for upgrading their product.

Updates are "patches" to the software that update the software with any latest bug fixes.  They are only applied on the same version purchased and can not be used to upgrade a product.  For example, TBrac-2006 version 3.02.04 would be an update to 3.01.01 and is available free from our website's download page.  To go from TBrac-2003 to TBrac-2006 would require purchasing the software at an upgrade price for qualified customers.

Is TBrac-2006 Standard Edition the correct product to export rosters to the center's scoring system and import scores?

No.  TBrac-2006 Standard does not contain the interface to communicate with the electronic autoscoring systems. You must purchase TBrac-2006 A/S.
