If you have an FD file, is it possible to activate it somehow using browser version?

Some way to upload the file into the CC section?

Try this forum. The answer may well be in there somewhere.

you have to use the old version, i.e. downloadable, and enter the CC and find the file on your computer and then select "USE" you should get a reply to the effect of your new CC was received. In the java version your CC will use the name that is in your CC's file

Trying to understand...

I do have a PC laptop, which I virtually never use. If it did not have the declarer play book/software I would never use it. I could easily move the FD file to that, almost as easily login to bbo on it using BBOWin, which I have only used maybe 3 times. If I went through that exercise AND loaded up the FD file, would that CC then be listed on my convention cards when I log in using the web? And would it automatically alert bids?

Thanks.

My other question is, is there some way to do this directly using BBO or their web page? The normal way would be to upload a file with a web form.

I just saw the instructions near the bottom of the link mentioned above. Will try that. It is a year old, now.

Instructions for uploading a convention card from PC
These are similar to the instructions posted in another thread.

  • Run BBOWin (Bridge Base Online) Application
  • Login
  • Wait while it loads player list - You might think you could click "Cancel" since you do not care about that - Don't click "Cancel"
  • Near lower left corner of window, click the green "CONV." button.
  • Work convention card
  • Look for Other Convention Cards (this will open a file open dialog box in windows.
  • Navigate to the directory where you have the FDCC file stored (has .bss extension)
  • If you do not see it, enter "*.*" in the File name: field and click open
  • Click on desired file
  • Click Open
  • Click Use ("Use" here apparently means "send the file to BBO", not actually use the convention card, though maybe it does use it if you stay logged in)
  • You should then see "Your convention card has been received" in the chat window
  • If you want to load more cards click Open and repeat steps 6 through 12 until you have loaded all of the cards that you want
  • Close the "Work Convention Card" dialog box.
  • Exit Bridge Base Online


Your convention card(s) should now be available to use on the browser.
To test them you will actually have to get to a table where you have a partner and opponents - opponents can be robots, but partner can't be.
Once you have a deal you should see the alerts if you are at a Teaching Table. At a regular table, presumably only the opponents see the alerts.

I created several cc that are now in "Your Convention Cards" in BBOwin.
Question:
1. how do i delete some of the CCs I created?
2. how can I modify one of the bids (its definition) ? I'd like to change the definition of 2D opening only.

The above questions apply only for the Windows version.
(in the web version there is a button "delete")

You can just delete the convention card file. They're in C:\Bridge Base Online\convcards\<username> convcards.
