No, BidFellow does not work on other operating system than Windows. Right now there
is no plan to support others platforms because BidFellow is built using Microsoft
(.NET) technologies, and portability is not one of the features of it. As alternative
you can use a virtual machine software like VirtualBox to run Windows applications
on a Mac - and it is free.
A) That is the normal behavior, you do not need any activation key for trial mode.
Just ignore the activation message and select a site from the list at top left.
Then you will be able to hit the button "Start" and begin the auction process.
A) It means you have the rule called "Auction activity" enabled. Please go to tab
Rules and uncheck the last option if you want to disable it.
A) Many causes are possible. The most common are:
1) A temporary interruption on your internet connection. Please avoid using wireless
networks with BidFellow to minimize this effect.
2) A temporary problem on the site you are playing on, keeping it from receiving
bids from players. If the auction ended exactly when you got the timeout, it is
very probably this is the problem, because nobody else could bid either, so the
last bidder won.
3) The time set to bid is too low. Keep in mind most sites use cycles of 1000ms
in their scripts to "get" data from their server. This means everything you see
on your browser (or BidFellow), may happened 1 second ago. This can be proof by
opening many tabs of your browser in the same auction: you will notice the timers
are not fully synchronized, some may be one second delayed (or the others are ahead).
So, to have a "safe" setting, calculate your timing like this: 1000ms + *your typical
delay*. That's why it is very dangerous to set BidFellow to bid bellow 1s.
If you ALWAYS get timeout, it means something is wrong with BidFellow script. Please
email us about that. While we do not release a update to fix it, you can still bid
by enabling the option "Manual mouse click mode", on Settings tab. With this setting
on, BidFellow will move your mouse pointer right on the bid button.
Yes. If you are playing on multiple auctions on the same site, use the button "New
window". If you are playing on different sites, just run another BidFellow from
your Windows start menu.
