    Discard Tray In Verite?

    There seems to be a consensus that practicing with Verite is recommended for beginners to play around with for awhile before doing serious real life play. Right now I have a lot of time to practice and not much opportunity to play so that sounds good. But if part of the idea is to practice count accuracy, I was wondering how the issue of the discard tray is addressed in shoe games for this program. You need to know how much has been dealt to convert RC to TC, and I get the impression that people generally practice this by looking at actual stacks of decks. How does this translate to a computer screen?

    There are hundreds of photographs of casino discard trays at various depths and styles included in the game and drills. In the game, they are merged into the image of the table.

    Hey Norm,
    I was just checking out the demo for CVBJ and using the deck estimation drill w/ a deck resolution of full decks.
    What I found kind of screws up the drill is that one of the discard tray images has slightly discolored (yellowed) cards. Even though I can estimate the decks, you can tell the answer just by seeing the different color.
    I can't remember which one it was (I think either the 2, 3, or 4 deck image).

    I'm wondering whether this is just a feature of the demo or whether this is present in the full version.

    Full and demo are the same. I'll have to see if I can adjust the coloring.
