Scorer for PPT Games?
« on: September 21, 2019, 09:55:30 am »
Hi all,

I have some games which I haven't used in a while, and the scoring pages are now just blank.

Any suggestions? Thanks!

EDIT:: I added an example of just a scoreboard PPT, which now doesn't work.

It's nice to be important but more important to be nice.

This is just a theory, but it probably has to do with macros not being supported in newer versions of powerpoint. While some macros codes can be enabled to function, there are some codes that are just too outdated.

And if you have a  mac, certain codes of macros scoreboards are completely broken and will only ever show up as a white box like this.

It's definitely an issue with macros and different versions of powerpoint. I just replace macro/flash scoreboards with scoreboards animated with powerpoint's own animation tools.
