I can't see why it would not work. All you have to do if 
it does not work is run it in Win95 or 98 compatibility 
mode. To do this just right-click on the .exe file for 
the game and select properties. Then you can check they 
option on a tab there to run it in compatiblility mode. I 
have been able to get many old 95/98 games running under 
XP by doing this. If I were you, I would get FS2002, its 
excellent and 100% better.

NO compatibility mode needed actually, works fine under WinXP. Do
compatibility mode just in case though.

Simulation problem
2 replies , 2/16/2005, 4:32:14 PM
My problem is that I have installed crystal ball on my comp. When for example I am trying to do the simulation I want one of the cells to be decreasing gradually by the values given to me by the crystal ball. That is not the case, lets say: I have given number 3 by the simualtion Lets say my inventory is 40 I want 40 to be decreasing every time a simulation gives me a number but it is always subtructing from 40 and not 40-3-5-6-7-4-5 it is always 40-3, 40-5, 40-6 what should I change, is there a lock on the cell for that or what?

Probabilty - Binomial - a simulation game?
4 replies , 4/30/2006, 2:31:01 AM
Hello, Life has presented me with an opportunity to teach some math to children/young adults with challenging backgrounds. Many have come a long way and want to pursue more challenging material. I want to teach them more about probability and want to design an Excel simulation. My idea was to get them to work out how variables altered probability. Specifically I am looking for help to develop a game where students would alter variables "probability" (expressed as a ratio or percentage) of picking a colored ball from a bag. So if they said there were three red balls, 4 blue, six white etc. the simulation would calculate the probability of each ball. And I'd like to show them the impact of selecting "out" or "in" where "out" is keeping the ball (and all others selected) out of the bag for subsequent turns and "in" is putting the ball back in the bag. Then a random generator would be used to "pick" the next ball and excel would display a cell of the matching ball color. I then want excel to show some statistics like comparison of theoretical probability to outcome (to show sample size variance), the number of times in a row a particular ball was drawn (as in a streak). I know the math but am a baby beginner at Excel programming. It looks like from the help that a Binomial distribution is the function with a rounded random function for selection. Am I on the right track? Any ideas on "out" and "in"? Thanks very much for your help Rob

Re: Car assign simulation
1 replies , 4/11/2005, 4:40:02 PM
Hi Bob, Thanks for your quick response. I have another more complicated problem but it is also a car assignment problem. The problem is similar to the previous one that assigning right car to the right job without time overlapping. But there is one more requirement. Once the car is assigned to DriverA, other drivers cannot use the car until DriverA drives the car back to the depot. Using below table, Column A stores the service type. There are 3 types which are "T", "L" and "W" services. Column B and C store the start time snd finish time of the job. Column D and E are the driver and car assignment for the job. e.g. in row 4, Driver 3 is assignned for the job. The values in column D are given and I would like to find out the value of column E. Column F and column G are the route of the car (from which location to which location). The value of these two columns are also given. And location 16 is the depot. So, if the car start at location 16, that means the car go to the destination from depot. I have inputted the formulae based on those you taught me before . A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) service| job | assignment | location | W truck | L truck | T truck | 2) type |start| end |driver|vehicle|from| to |W1|W2|W3|L1|L2|L3|T1|T2|T3| 3)--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4) L 12:15 12:40 3 L1 16 32 5) W 12:20 12:40 2 W1 16 17 6) T 12:20 12:35 17 T1 16 28 7) W 12:25 12:45 1 W2 28 61 8) L 12:25 12:40 18 L2 16 70 9) W 12:30 12:50 5 W3 16 66 10) T 12:35 12:50 14 T1 22 17 11) L 12:35 12:50 4 L1 16 62 12) W 12:40 13:00 2 W1 17 41 13) T 12:40 12:55 19 T2 16 61 14) L 12:40 12:55 3 L2 32 46 in H4: =IF(A4="W",C4,0) in K4: =IF(A4="L",C4,0) in N4: =IF(A4="T",C4,0) in H5: =IF(A5="W",IF(MAX(H$4:H4)>B5,0,C5),0) in I5: =IF(OR(SUM($H5:H5)>0,$A5="T",$A5="l"),0,IF(MAX(I$4:I4)>$B5,0,$C5)) in J5: =IF(OR(SUM($H5:I5)>0,$A5="T",$A5="l"),0,IF(MAX(J$4:J4)>$B5,0,$C5)) in K5: =IF(A5="L",IF(MAX(K$4:K4)>$B5,0,$C5),0) in L5: =IF(OR(SUM($K5:K5)>0,$A5="W",$A5="T"),0,IF(MAX(L$4:L4)>$B5,0,$C5)) in M5: =IF(OR(SUM($K5:L5)>0,$A5="W",$A5="T"),0,IF(MAX(M$4:M4)>$B5,0,$C5)) in N5: =IF(A5="T",IF(MAX(N$4:N4)>B5,0,C5),0) in O5: =IF(OR(SUM($N5:N5)>0,$A5="W",$A5="L"),0,IF(MAX(O$4:O4)>$B5,0,$C5)) in P5: =IF(OR(SUM($N5:O5)>0,$A5="W",$A5="L"),0,IF(MAX(P$4:P4)>$B5,0,$C5)) The outputs of column E are shown. However, you can see that Driver3 (in row 4 and row 14) finished the first job and go to the location of last job without returning depot. So, he should use the same car L1. Also, car L1 cannot be used by other drivers in this period. So, can you plaese help me to solve this problem? Also, please don't mind my message is so long and I have so many questions. Many thanks for your help. Best regards, Lilian

Blackjack simulation in Excel

Hi, I want to create a spreadsheet that simulates blackjack hands that mimics real probabilities that i can calculate myself, or if anyone already has this data this would be ideal. I need to be able to tell the spreadsheet what table rules are in effect, e.g. the number of decks in the shoe, double after split or not, dealer stands or hits on soft 17 and so on - obviously if you've already got knowledge or a working example of this you are a god to me! after inputting the different variables i want the sheet to generate hands and play them against the dealers upcard as determined by the relevant basic strategy table to those parameters specified (if you know the game you will be aware that different table rules give rise to subtle variations in strategy). the purpose of this is to generate 65536 hands per sheet (or multiples there of) and simulate player win/push/dealer win results so as to aid identification of the most efficient staking plan. there are programs out there that play for you but mine is a statistical problem i wish to investigate and understand myself. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated, and if you share a similar interest in this i would be glad to hear from you too. PGLove
