Introduction

Scrabble Buddy is a helpful tool for Pogo™ SCRABBLE players. This auto shows and plays hints and plays the game for you automatically until you tell it to stop.


The Interface (GUI)

Scrabble Buddy has a simple layout and is easy to use. The main attraction is the miniaturized copy of the SCRABBLE gameboard. This GUI will mimic the game as it progresses. The rest of the interface makes it a breeze to accomplish tasks with a click of a button. When scan then solve is clicked, a list of words is generated which can then be filtered according to your personal wants. Selecting a word and pressing the play button will result in that word being entered into the board. The clear board feature will do exactly that - clear the Buddy so that it's ready for a new game. And let us not forget the autoplay feature! As the name suggests, this is where users can engage Scrabble Buddy in automatic play.

To view these selections in greater detail, select the Interface link below. It also lists a couple of menu options: Game, Options, Rooms, and Help. You can learn more about these by reading below.


Menu Options

The Game menu allows users to save their game for future reference and open them again whenever you want.
The Options menu allows you to access Scrabble Buddy's dictionary editor and settings and change them to suit your needs (see below). It also allows you to access Scrabble Buddy's settings and change them to suit your needs (see below). It also offers an opportunity to refer a buddy (tell a friend) about Scrabble Buddy and/or request a new feature.
The Rooms menu has one of most valuable features of Scrabble Buddy. It contains backdoors links to each of Pogo's SCRABBLE room topics.
The Help menu provides instructions on how to use Scrabble Buddy, a link to the Play Buddy Help Center, shortcuts to buy and register your copy, and a valuable Troubleshoot and Bug Report feature to use when Scrabble Buddy isn't working. But perhaps the most valuable feature here is the auto check at startup which automatically checks for any updates. 
Settings

Settings Action
Window - Always on top Keeps Scrabble Buddy on top of all windows all the time.
Auto play - Always play again Keeps Scrabble Buddy starting new games automatically when autoplay is on.
Play sound on startup Turns the "Welcome to Play Buddy" greeting on and off. Also lets users insert their own sound file.
Dictionary Defines what dictionary Scrabble Buddy will use. The default dictionary can be swaped out with one of your choosing.
Click Speed Adjusts how slow or fast rounds are completed during autoplay.

The Dictionary Editor

The Dictionary Editor lets users do a search for a specific word. It also lists all the words in a convenient searchable format by providing a scrollable list. If a new word needs to be added or a specific word deleted, this is the place to do it. NOTE:Users can also delete words by right-clicking the word on the Buddy's GUI and selecting the option there.


How To Use

    • Log on to Pogo games with your username and password, or select a room topic from Scrabble Buddy's Rooms menu.
    • If you haven't already done so, launch Scrabble Buddy when your game opens. It automatically recognizes it and is ready to work.
    • Manual players can use the play hint and show hint options.
    • Autoplayers need only press the autoplay button to have Scrabble Buddy play the game automatically.

Optimizing Performance

  • Definitions: To get the meaning (definition) of a word in the results list, right-click on the word and click on the Definition option that pops up.
  • Blank Tiles:While playing SCRABBLE you occasionally draw a blank tile. The blank tile can be used to represent any letter. Scrabble Buddy uses a wildcard character i.e. the Question Mark (?) to represent a blank tile. When the solve button is clicked, Scrabble Buddy substitutes the ? with each letter of the alphabet and builds the results list.
  • Tag team: If you have a specific method of playing, you may want to play with the Buddy by your side for show hint purposes. Then when you need a break or want to watch somebuddy else work for awhile, press "Play"!
  • Sorta Awesome: Did you know you can sort the solutions on the Buddy's GUI? From A-Z, by length, or completey random, you can choose in what order you want the words to appear.

HELP!

It won't recognize the game window

Double-check that you have the newest version available. Do this by using the check for update feature under the Help menu on the Buddy. Also, the "News" section at the top of this page has a link to "Updated Buddies." Here you can see if the Buddy has been recently updated and why. 

Now make sure that internet browser zoom is set to 100% and that you're using appropriate display settings.

It won't work

Select the Bug Report feature under the HELP tab on the Buddy. Fill in the required fields, capture the screen, and then send it. Play Buddy Support will receive it and respond to you via e-mail.
