How It Works

Digigammon is an automatic backgammon transcription system based on state-of-the-art artificial intelligence technologies. It is a 2-software package working in harmony: Digitimer and Transcriptor.

The setup is easy: A Digigammon installed Windows device, notebook or tablet, besides the backgammon board and a webcam above. You record your match like all the time, except this time with Digitimer.

Digitimer serves boths as a timer, and it also recognizes your board, detects the checkers, the dice and the cube. It visually processes your match and prepares it for the final transcription phase.

Digitimer detects checkers, dice and cube

Transcriptor gets its input from Digitimer, a processed match file, and by communicating with GNU Backgammon, produces a transcription file compatible with popular analysis tools, like eXtreme Gammon.

Transcriptor is transcribing a match file

Rarely, if there is an illegal move in the match or a detection problem, Transcriptor may ask your input to be able to continue the transcription process correctly.

Transcriptor sometimes requires user input to continue

Your transcription will be ready within a few minutes after the match! Have fun immediately learning your pr and analyzing your blunders!
