    Hi,

    I wrote to myself a program that checking each 10 seconds Fifa website automatically and checking for available tickets for matches I would like to see.
    Will such a program will be useful for you?
    Currently everything in the code without ability to custom it etc and without the ability to purchase automatically.
    If i'll see that many people would like to use such a tool, i'll be do it with UI etc so you'll be able to use it.

    Thanks.

    OK - its not a problem.
    Just to play a beep when selected game available? Do you want the ability to choose one game or multiple games? what about categories?

    If i could choose, Multiple games of course. But anything that would help us from sitting 24/7 and waiting would be superb!

    What language are you writing this in, and are you open sourcing? Also, what platforms will you support?

    c#. Will be in Windows only (sorry if its a problem).
    OK - will change it. Currently this is the UI:

    Let me know if you think I should change something...

    Also,
    Should I send it to everyone or only for people who really visit Brazil?

    Thanks.

    Sending it to genuine fans would probably be the best thing to do

    I will be interested.
    Make it available here. Ticket touts already have their methods.
    I am a genuine fan as many others here. It is unfair for one or few individuals to decide who is genuine and who is not.

    It's perfectly fair. You write the software, you choose how to distribute it.

    I'd say only offer it to people who have confirmed tickets down there or something of the sort. It's no problem about the language and the system - just was curious if it was going to be open sourced and in something I could poke around the code for.

    I have a drat of the software (without validations etc).
    This is just a scanner and notify you when there are available tickets for the game you selected with the categories you choose.
    Maybe in the future i'll add an option to buy automatically but i'll do it only if you really need it.

    If you want to be the beta tester before I publish it, the first one that will email to [email protected] will be the beta tester.

    Thanks

    Yes, the developer can choose however they want to distribute it. They can make it public or choose to give it to genuine fans. I am saying, it is unfair that somebody or few people decide who is a genuine fan. It is subjective, hence unfair. A perfect example is the criteria you suggest. Many touts are going there and can provide confirmed tickets. While some genuine fans still plan to go IF they find tickets.

    Happy to help with testing and happy to use it. Anything to boost chances of catching a certain ticket. I've sent an email in case you are still seeking testers.

    Interested in using it too. You can check my posts to tell I'm not reselling. I'm only looking for that miracle
    finals ticket, down to the wire.

    I've researched write my own software, but I'm not a .net / asp guy, so was trying another method but couldn't figure it out yet...Just need to be alerted, maybe have it send an email to notify.

    Thanks for all your efforts Royial! I'm most certainly interested in any help you can offer as I've been unlucky thus far in obtaining any tickets for myself and my dad. We've reserved our flights without match tickets!

    Hello royial. I would be interested in using the scanner and helping with testing.

    I, like many others, have yet to get any tickets so far. Any help would be appreciated!
