Minden Cricket - Excel Helper for Easy Play
The current version of the MPCC Assistant is v0.1.9 (updated with 2019 World Cup squads). You are now also provided with a seperate file that includes a full list of all players from the 1920s to the present day. The data in this file can be copies into the Assistant to allow you to replay any matches with these players (seperate purchase of the board game and the Career Set pdfs are still required to use the Assistant. It is not a stand alone game).
The Minden Assistant is now available for download. Note, this is very much in beta at the moment and you download and use it at your own risk. That said, the latest version is very stable and is a brilliant piece of work by Paul Caswell, a long time Minden Cricket fan. Almost all of the Advanced Rules have been implemented, and you are able to choose between the Basic and Advanced Game. The Helper keeps track of all the stats as you play, rolls dice, and flips cards!
To use it you still need the Minden Playing Card Cricket game itself and the player cards as you do the look ups yourself, but it makes playing the game and keeping track of the stats and game conditions super easy.
- The ActiveX settings under File -> Options -> Trust Centre - > Trust Centre Settings... -> Active X Settings. It should be set to Prompt me before enabling all controls with minimal restrictions. Also ensure that the option Safe Mode is unchecked.
- The Macro settings under File -> Options -> Trust Centre - > Trust Centre Settings... -> Macro Settings. It should be set to Disable all macros with notification.
Have fun and again a huge thank you to Paul for his hard work.
