Following the success of the recent FFA tournament and to encourage people to run more tournaments and in different rulesets, like instagib and pql-vampiric with all weapons and armor (like vamp ca), I release this small group score calculator.
The calculator takes as input game ids for a round and shows the scores for each game and a total. The organizers use the total to decide who qualifies for the next round. To get the game ids, go to quake live website and navigate to the profile of one of the players. Clicking on his past games will show you the game id in the URL.
Ruleset info is in the file.
How to install?
Download python 3.2 or later and then run this file. No other dependencies.

Why not compile an executable?
Independently released software often gets flagged by web filters and anti virus software that people are using. I think this is pure abuse and blackmail. Posting the code like this avoids those problems and also nothing special has to be done for say linux.
Why not a website?
I wanted to separate the availability of the tool from the availability of my website, especially during a tourney. This way the tourney depends only on the quake live infrastructure, organizers and players.
A second ruleset is likely to be added soon, in preparation for another tournament.
