The Diplomacy Competition Manager (DCM)


The ARMADA DCM is a Microsoft Windows application used to seed and score Diplomacy tournaments. Sounds simple, doesn't it? But believe it or not, there just plain didn't seem to be one of these. Anywhere. So the ARMADA's fearless leader, Manus Hand, set out to create one. With invaluable assistance from a couple of other ARMADA members, the program, then named the Diplomacy Tournament Manager (DTM), was ready in time for use during the ARMADA's first "Regatta" tournament in the year 2000.

With the DCM, a tournament director can concentrate on directing the tournament, not on the mundane tasks of determining who plays who and how many points each player has earned.


DCM pre-release: version 19.10.6

I know I said without documentation, but the in-the-works HTML documentation files are included in a help/ folder in the zip file you can download.
