The recommended Logo size is 580×200 px. Your colour can be defined by RGB, HSL or HEX codes or simply picked from the colour map which will appear.

If you are planning to run FIDE Rated events with Tornelo, you should probably turn on FIDE Mode. This will strictly enforce a number of FIDE rules relating to pairings. Nevertheless, you will always be able to turn it on/off for a particular event from the event settings.

You are ready to Run your first Event.
