Tournament Manager - Change Up

Does it not work under MacOs X as is? What specific BigSur dependency are you looking for?

The TM download page has claimed it wasn’t compatible with Catalina since that version was released in the fall of 2019. For what it’s worth I had no trouble running it under Catalina, but in Big Sur (released fall 2020), the latest version of TM crashes on launch for me.

Ok the next step is to contact to get their feedback as to when they expect this to be fixed.

It may well be that it is not a priority for RECF who contracts with DWABtech to develop TM software.

It may be as simple issue for them to recompile under Xcode with Big Sur

Thanks, I have sent a message to DWAB Tech, but as I had not gotten any response yet in the last week I was wondering if I was the only one wanting to use TM on the latest version of MacOS

FYI - We recently diagnosed the problem with Tournament Manager on Big Sur. Unfortunately what we found is that in Big Sur, Apple made a significant breaking change (they removed all system-provided dynamic libraries from the filesystem). This broke 100s of applications, Tournament Manager being one of them. Due to some technical reasons, it is likely not going to be easy to work around this in TM. As such we’re not able to provide any ETA at this point.

We’ve updated the download website with this additional information.


You got to love Apple. Microsoft flips themselves inside out to make sure Windows ME code runs and Apple goes “pffft” we don’t think you need that. We don’t need that therefore you don’t need that.


I opened Tournament Manager yesterday for the first time in a while and I allowed the software to update. Now, when I have tried to control a connected robot I have no green lights on the field tower. I have green lights on the match controller. I can’t seem to find any information online regarding the latest update. Can someone direct me where I need to look?

Do you have the competition template downloaded to your V5 brain?

You can also start a practice match and test to see it’s working.
