DartPro is a program that will help you improve your game of darts. If you practice at home, DartPro can help you to keep track of your scores by saving them in a database. How is that going to improve your game? Because every time you play a game, you'll see your grand average of played games right in front of you, and you'll want to do better than yesterday, or last week, so you're trying harder. In a way, you're throwing against yourself. Believe me: it works! You will see how you improve your game over a period of time with absolute certainty instead of guessing. You can visualize your data in charts to see what part of your game needs improvement. Charts are always a big help in making data more readable.
These are the games currently available in DartPro:
- Single 501
Play a typical game of 501 and let DartPro do the math. Enter your scores and see how much you're left with, you get finish suggestions: preferred finishes and pressure finishes, and a list of all possible finishes. You can save your game to a database, and chart your efforts.
- Single 301
Like a 501 game, but most people play this with double in double out.
- Local game of 501
This is your typical game of 501, but you don't have to write down your scores: DartPro will display them for every player to see.
- Remote Game Of 501
How about playing a game online against a friend or a total stranger! That's right: DartPro comes with a gameserver to let you connect to a friend anywhere on the internet and play a game like he or she was there with you in the room. There's even a build-in chat window for realtime communication, just like ICQ, MSN or whatever chat client you're using.
In Cricket, the objective is to close all your numbers (20 - 15 and bull) and gather more or as many points as your opponent. To close a number, you must hit that number 3 times. If you've hit it more than 3 times, and your opponent hasn't closed that number yet, every extra score is counted as extra points. This makes for very interesting game play, and is a great exercise in hitting important triples we need when finishing a game of 501.
- Single Cricket
Play a game of Cricket by yourself to practice.
- Round The Board
The objective of this game is to hit a round of doubles in numerical order, beginning with double 1 and ending with double 20 - just like the official rules used in British Pentathlon. Because some people, like myself, like hitting the Bull and think it's an essential element in the game of darts, I made including the Bull an option. DartPro keeps track of the percentages, and you can save them in a database - just like you're used to in the other games. Round The Board is an excellent game to help you improve hitting doubles.
- Average ShootOut
The objective in this game is to give you stamina in your average. Fire away at those triple 20's and see what your average is without those nasty doubles. You get some really usefull information playing this, because you get to know your average in percentages of scores below 60, >60, >100, >140 and 180's.
- Target Practice
In this routine you get to practice 1 target at a time, be it a Number, a Double, a Triple, or even a big or small part of a Number. And you can play for MPR's or Percentages. Say you want to practice your cover shot: 19. You may decide to go for MPR's, and practice the whole number. Triple's and Doubles count correspondedly, and the result is an MPR which can be saved to a database, be charted, and you can see if over time you are making progress. You can also specify that you want to practice Triple 19: in this case you play a Percentage game where only Triple's count as hits. Each and every field on the board can be a Target, and like with every other practice routine in DartPro, all your efforts are saved in a database where filtering and charting lets you see how your game progresses over time
- Random Practice
Also included is a practiceboard where DartPro gives you random challenges of doubles or triples to throw, so you can test and improve your outshots.
If you're having troubles finding the right finishes, or you want some alternatives for the ones we all know from the various lists, let DartPro calculate any number of possible finishes for you!
All in all, DartPro was developed to make you a better darter.
