Finally I have found time to
start updating my homepage (makingi tfunctioning again). This web is now on the Hostingpalvelu server.
Old data is perhaps still available
This link may disappear some time (most files are from the beginning of this
millennium). Some kind of back-up with almost the same information as on this
Backas site can be found on pbn-bridge.ddns.net
(you have to write the link in your browser!).
But these links are slow for downloading.
All new bridge programs that I have written in the last decades are now available to download
from this site. Some relay on external code as
Bo Haglund's double dummy solver (32bit version)
may download the newest ones, but only those available on my site are
those that I have tested.
As said, I have the tested dll's
available here, you may try the newest by downloading from the real original providers.
My programs are written with Microsoft Visual Studio as VB programs and do generally need the latest
Some must have Interop-files to function properly. The zip-file that I provide
should contain all necessary auxiliary files.
Thus I suggest that you download and unzip dll_files and
aux_files as told on the PBN page.
PBN is nowadays
the mostly used file format for bridge. A lot of file formats that were
available in my old Batchconverter are now almost obsolate. My bridge file converter
thus supports only PBN, Jannersten's .dlm, Deep Finesse, BridgeBaseOnline
.lin, and Bridge Baron. Intelligence is in the file KGBcodec.dll.
The page about playing cards are almost as on
the old sites. A visit to Gripsholmen castle in Sweden allowed me to take a
picture of a painting of Sigrid. You may compare it to the knave of Hearts.
Unfortunately I do not have a list of OCX and Microsoft dll's that
perhaps are needed for my programs. If you encounter problems, please mail, then I can
update this information in the explanation text.
Everything is in public
domain. Please enjoy. But, use programs on your own risk.
