Description:

LIVE TENNIS matches displayed on your screen with a 10s refreshment.

Very useful in these Roland Garros days!
To display all matches, you just need to scroll up/down through the list

Available here:
- a big version with 7 matches displayed at maximum
- a small version with 1 match displayed at a time

For those who know my "Karamba Live Football", it works the same... for those who do not, go to:
http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Karamba+Live+Football?content=57110

IMPORTANT: Because it's the first day of Roland Garros and I've just programmed it today, it may prove buggy... so I'll keep it updated as best as I can


ANY COMMENT WILL BE VERY WELCOMED! If you want it not so large, with other features, colors...

Is it the server? because the australian open aren't shown completely, or the stats aren't updated

Think you can update it for wimbledon? It seems the wimbledon data can't be read...

Ok, now it should work for any competition. Do not hesitate to report any other issue/evolution request...

Another idea!
Someone gave up today (can't remember who right now)
This means someone "won" without completing the match. You think it's possible to show who won the match? e.g. making the name of the winner bold?

I thought of this. I can't set any bold/italic... stuff but I can either:
- Set winners in uppercase/currently playings in lowercase
- Add a "(W)" to winner's name

I'll have a look into it asap

I assume you're gonna add support for more Grand Slam tournaments to this app, maybe you can also add a Rain Delay warning on?

(BTW, it's a lot of rain on Roland Garros this year, which gave me this idea)

The large version currently just gives me a blank screen, while the small one works.

Besides the background not working (or is it supposed to be transparent?)

YOU ROCK DUDE! It's awesome!

It should work... and actually does on my PC. Maybe you need to unpack the .skz (rename it .zip and extract) and then you may be able to see the background if you lanch the .theme file.
As for the weather, it's Paris man! I've been 4 years there, now I moved to Nice/Cannes... awefully better! ;-)

Yeh, background works, after I reload the theme :)

Probably something strange with my computer... as usual

Ok, my comment was on the very first you placed here, commented later, so, sorry for the confusing comment!

But I have another idea, indeed, changable colors, because I have a grey background, I can't see the current scores very well.

Just an idea.

For the rest, I love this one!! especially now I know I can scroll, and have the large version! :)

Sorry, forgot an idea:

Maybe include if it is a male or female match? Because only the names with first name only letter doesn't make that clear, and especially now in the beginning, the names aren't all that familiar yet

For the color thing, I already know... my Mom (my first supporter under Linux: i forced her into removing Windows :p) already asked me for an all-white version.
Male or female... I'm not sure it is so easy because of the HTML content in fact but I'll look into this.
Last point, I think I can easily tag the player that is currently serving... which can be useful in the intensity of a tie-break!

Do not hesitate to ask for more... again I did this one quickly on Sunday when it was raining on Paris, so that all the matches were cancelled... not easy to work on my soft!

And again, again, if you also like soccer, do not hesitate to check out my "Karamba Live Football" theme ;-)

I like al lot that stuff, it's a good work, but i have to say that tie-breaks' scores are shown as another set's score.
Ex:
Chela 6 5 6
Santoro 7 7 0

where 7-5 is the tie-break score regarding the first set, and not another set score..
my suggestion is to close the tie-break results into these: ()

Btw it's great.

(where does it pick up results?)

Well... didn't have the opportunity to see any tie-break on Sunday :p, so this issue didn't appear to me... I'll try to change that, or at least to remove the details of the tie break, because it's not so relevant.

I'm guessing it takes the results from the live XML file on the rolandgarros website :)

It's pretty low on height.... not very high amount of games fit in the standard size.

Make it resizable or auto-size to the games?

Well, I'll have a look at this... in the meantime, you can modify the height of the .theme file, it should make the scrolling a bit weird but it won't break anything.
However, you already have 7 matches displayed and you can SCROLL UP/DOWN with your mouse wheel to see the others... knowing that rarely more 7 matches are unfolding simultaneouly in Roland Garros...
