Contest Configuration Files

All specific contest definition parameters are specified in plain text configuration files (*.txt) which are included with the DXLog.net download.
Standard versions of the config files are stored in the Contest sub-directory of the DXLog.net installation directory.
During DXlog.net start, the relevant contest config file is copied over from the Contest sub-directory to the user's personal application data directory (%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\DXLog.net\Contest on Windows 7), if the original version is newer than the one stored in the Application data directory. Avoid keeping older versions of the same contest config file in that directory as DXLog.net may ignore the newer file if they have the same CONTESTNAME definition.
The contest config files contain all the relevant information required for DXLog.net to calculate QSO points, multipliers and all other data required for the specific contest.
A custom multiplier list can also be included in the config file, if this is required.
Contest points calculation is completed by regex (regular expressions) values, based on source, destination or configuration data.
It is possible to specify some exceptions to the rule if required, for example, different multiplier calculations depending on which DXCC you are operating the contest from.

Creating / editing config files can be done with a simple text editor, such as Notepad++ or similar.

For information on creating and editing contest configuration files see the Contest_definition section of this WIKI.
