Matt Weiner is working on a similar project, at least with respect to schedule templates. You should have a chat with him.The Predictable Consequences wrote:What would be really awesome would be to create a set of public schedules for common field sizes where all a TD would have to do is change a list of teams and rooms to the actual teams and rooms and it would auto-populate a schedule. I'll try and make a small version of what I'm envisioning later tonight.

I don't like these schedules for two reasons.Hidehiro Anto wrote:Personally, I'm just using Jonah's LaTeX schedules, and editing them to my needs. However, this requires both LaTeX software (free to download) and knowledge of the LaTeX language (which I don't have, I'm just learning as I go).

(there may be some mistakes as this was a quick effort). It's far easier to generate a schedule yourself and paste the table into Word (or convert to LaTeX using http://www.tablesgenerator.com if you're into that sort of thing).
This is some hot stuff.cvdwightw wrote:This spreadsheet I made a while ago covers basically every single one of those formats you listed except the ones requiring wild-card tiebreakers, plus suggested formats for 25-36 teams given 13 non-finals non-tiebreaker packets, plus schedules for as many numbers of teams between 37 and 48 as I could figure out.
