Do you have the latest version? On the older one it there was a check box on the login screen to use Australian Markets
Report Joel November 17, 2014 6:26 AM GMT
Actually I just reopened it and couldn't see the Aus markets, closed it down and started it again and it worked. The API has been playing up a lot since they upgraded it...

Yes joel have tried 4 times but same if try others not in list

It is because Betfair bought out a new API the other day.  I use Geeks Toy, of course, and they have gone back to BETA version due to it.
I usually find if I reopen it, they are there.  But certainly a fcukaround....

Try refreshing the days markets, and reopening.  Not sure I can offer any other help, as it seems a little pot luck at the moment.

Has only happened since new api gruss told me to refresh markets but no go  is geeks toys any good tried others bet trader etc but the same

Good of them to do real time bug testing with their customers. Software released on release date (9 days late) , not when it is ready . Heaps of error msg's still but is improving.

GT back to beta, which is a use at your own cost.  It isn't a released program right now, but available to use all the same.  They are all in the same boat by the looks. Not sure if all are back to Beta.

Hamish, just did a reload of the markets on GT and Aus appeared straight up.  Sometimes it takes a reload of the software, but haven't missed a race yet.

Its a problem with the Betfair API and all platforms, Bet Angel, Racing Traders, Geeks Toy, etc. They say they are working on it but have no idea what it is. Sometimes the Aus racing markets come up and other times they wont open and you have to restart your program. Then sometimes no Aus races in the Horse Racing-Todays card markets. Very frustrating and taking way too long to fix.

and you have to restart your program

Good to know its not just me
Report HarryHindsight November 18, 2014 2:11 AM GMT
Yea but they had these problems before they forced everyone off the old api. I think some of the commercial API products didn't think they would go ahead with their release date and were caught out with last minute coding. Sometimes the market is in the list but still won't load.
LstMarketCatalogue has been producing the most errors here.

yeah and the prices on betfair end up being real sh*t because of the commission

I am surprised and a little bit concerned with the how long it is taking to fix the problems.
Report Thebas November 18, 2014 3:52 AM GMT
have betfair made any statement on the issue

or is it all in the hands of the third party software people ?
Report smartitude November 18, 2014 4:09 AM GMT
Betfair have been very reactive with this issue. They have not made any official announcement which would have made everybodies life a lot easier. They have acknowledged a problem but do not know what it is.
Report HarryHindsight November 18, 2014 6:25 AM GMT
Bite the bullet , admit they F#$%ed up and reinstate the old API. It works fine.   
I guess releasing dodgy software worked for Bill Gates but betfair are doing damage here.

Missing Australian Markets Issue - listMarketCatalogue & Navigation Data

We are aware of the issue that's been reported by a large number of customers which affects Australian markets. This issue causes some markets on the Australian Exchange not to be returned in responses to listMarketCatalogue and Navigation Data requests.

This issue is being investigated as high priority and we'll provide an update regarding this as soon as we have further information.
We'd like to apologies for the inconvenience caused by this issue in the meantime.

Kind Regards

Neil

cheers guys ...

but those programmers lol ... nil testing or de-bugging of a new setup is not the way we were all taught

some businesses will run 2 systems in tandem (the old & the new) until all the bugs are ironed out and the customers advise all is well

the good ol days Wink

You don't know whether you have been filled or can get a bet on.
