Thanks as always for your support and enthusiasm for helping others
I have had a go at altering this so it works for both servers (if they had "easy" games last time round) - and have had some pleasing results with small stakes
A few questions
a) There seems to be occasional issues about it taking multiple goes to "green up" and sometimes not succeeding. I suspect it is because it is attempting to do so in the maelstrom of a game just won. I see in other of the tennis bots here there is a delay of a few seconds suggested. Would that help here, and if so what is the best way to achieve?
b) I have duplicated the rules so they apply to No 2 in Betfair order - I just want to check that that stays fixed (i.e. wont swap depending on favouritism changes)
c) At the moment it is set up (I think!) to back either player. Assuming that say Player 2 is the "underdog" at that time, is it better to lay Player 1 rather than back Player 2, or does it not really matter assuming the match is relatively liquid? I can see myself getting confused here particularly if favouritism changes during a game so happy to stick with just backing either unless there is a big downside
A) Yes, I tend to delay all my entry/greening on tennis markets at new games and sets for several seconds until it settles down, basically i'd never just click to manually green up once a new game starts so don't do it with automation.
Regarding implementing them yes you can just copy the signal set and clear rules from that file you mentioned into your current one, then just add the signal changed condition to your green up rule
B) Yes, thats correct, players always remain in the same Betfair row order all match
C) Assuming there is enough liquidity for your stake it won't really matter which way round you do it, the only other thing to consider is the spead when greening up if using 'close trade on selection with greening' and trading the under dog, you can give quite a few ticks away on this at high prices compared to exiting on the fav if you'd layed that
But glad your finding the files useful and good to see them being adapted and combined etc to incorporate your own idea's
