Before adding scorecards to display sequences, make sure the follwoing program settings are configured:
- In DakStats Baseball, go to Configure > Auto Start Hit Chart RTD.
- Make sure DSTI has an output configured for scorecards.
- In Scorebook Generator, make sure the images are set to save in the correct location,
depending on the player:
“D:\V7000\Bitmaps” on Venus/DMP-7000 computer
“C:\Program Data\Daktronics\VNET4\Content\MediaRTD” on V-Net/DMP8000 computer (shared across the network)
- The Scorebook Generator program must remain open to create up-to-date cards.
Unlike traditional image RTD (Section 10), scorecards are automatically generated with the correct file names. The display controller then pulls in the proper image from the Bitmaps/MediaRTD folder based on the information in DakStats Baseball.
RTD Field Settings:

The Scorebook Generator program suports 5 seperate scorecard configurations at the same time with up to 4 previous at bat images as well as 3 scorecards for each of the following: inning at bats, home due ups, and guest due ups.
All settings related to the
formatting and appearance of
scorecards are configured in the
Scorebook Generator program.
- Custom Templates –
background images for
each team’s scorecards.
- Ball Arcs –
Show colored ball paths to represent safe or out hits, as well as the hit location.
- At Bat Text -
Choose whether or not to display at bat text as part of each image.
- Baserunning Path -
Display which base the batter reached, including RBIs.
Refer to the Daktronics Scorebook Generator Software Operation Manual (DD1361705) for
more information on creating and customizing scorecards.
Each scorecard graphic can be placed into a display sequence as a standalone piece of image
RTD or as a complement to at bat text.
Note: Outputting the scorecard graphics to the display controller requires an additional port
in the Daktronics Scoring-Timing Interface (DSTI) application.
