This is where points are directly entered as the performance.
For example: a novelty event (say Cork Scramble): Team A gets 24 corks so 24 points, Team B gets 18 corks so 18 points.

Carnival Setup > Carnival Settings
Where the points that competitors receive depend upon their performance, not their place.
Points must be entered for every event, every performance increment, and every age group, and both genders.
The resulting table is referred to as the standards.
We provide a set of standards in the Aths and Swim folders of our Example Carnival data. The file is named Standard.tps and would need to be copied into your working data folder for you to use.
To edit standards it is easiest to export and re-import them from Excel. Instructions here.
