Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Re: My Joomla Component - SP

Unfortunately I do not have enough experience to translate a joomla component from 2.5 to joomla 3.x, if someone wants to do it I want to give them the files.

Help Me / Re: Problem with rebuy OR add-on, not both
« Last post by Corey Cooper on December 04, 2018, 09:54:59 AM »
It has definitely been asked before because it is on my to-do list.  More generally, the ability to restrict add-ons and rebuys based on user-defined criteria (an expression or formula).  For example, I have in my notes to add something like:

[ ] a player may no longer rebuy if: [ expression ]

Where "expression" is a formula, like: totalRebuys + totalAddons > 1

Which would limit any player to 2 rebuys, 2 add-ons, or 1 rebuy and 1 add-on.


[ ] end rebuys if: [ expression ]

Example: totalRebuys + totalAddOns > 9

Similarly, this would end rebuys when the total of all rebuys and add-ons bought reaches 10.

Because it would have the benefit of all (or most) of the variables also available to points formulas, there are lots of things you could do with it, such as limit the number of rebuys per level, or leave them open until the prize pool reaches some designated point.

While this will require some work, it's not too large of a feature and I'd really like to get it in, but not until the port (v3.5) is complete.

My experience has also shown opening lots of dialog windows will eventually lead to the issue.

I haven't tested that yet... I will.  On both Windows 10 computers I have been working on, it happens after going through many configuration dialogs... after a while it just doesn't want to draw the dialogs.
Help Me / Problem with rebuy OR add-on, not both
« Last post by cheseco123 on December 03, 2018, 03:55:02 AM »
Hi , there I'm MACHU.
I don't see this on the game tab, but wondered if tournament can be set up such that someone can either rebuy or add-on, not both.

Can keep track I guess, but wonder if it isn't build in somewhere.

I searched for this in help forum.  Almost surprised I didn't ask this before as I usually allow one or the other, not both.

Thank in advance.

The fix is in progress:

There are some tips in that topic I previously posted for dealing with the issue.  I know they aren't great, but they do help.  Are you saying yours crashes after 25 to 30 minutes when a tournament is running and you're not doing anything else (as in, just the clock and rounds are counting down, you're not otherwise working with the app?)

Nov 27 update:

- Fixed a few Preferences tab items
- Polished up the built-in screens.  They are now 100% as far as I know.
- Fixed various Players tab items.  I think this tab is now 100%.
- Fixed file loading/saving in Game tab, Rounds tab, Players tab, Prizes tab, Tables tab, Events tab, Chips tab
- Fixed formula dialogs (Points for Playing, Events, Stats)
- Fixed Help tab, Links tab
- Fixed all Tournament exports
- At this point I think these tabs, with a very few exceptions, are 100% complete: Game, Rounds, Players, Prizes, Tables, Events, Chips, Help, Links
- Removed the hacky screen saver suppressor and updated the code to use an actual API that disables the Windows screen saver while the application is running.  Woohoo!  Removed the reminder to "Disable your screen saver".
- Fixed a few more internal incompatibilities with the latest version of JavaScript
- Fixed basic chip images
- Fixed a hundred other minor issues

Doesn't seem like a lot, but actually a lot more progress has been made.  I'm getting much closer to a point where I'll be able to step back and take inventory, and finally chart out a path to completion.

Things I know still need work (off the top of my head):
- Rules tab
- Summary tab
- Layout tab
- Database tab
- Stats tab
- Preferences tab
- Hotkeys tab
- Controls tab
- Dashboard

Most of these items are at least 50% complete already.

Finally, things I haven't touched on yet but know will need to be done:
- Licensing has to be refactored to remove it from the Windows registry.
- Evaluation will be completely overhauled (already know how I plan to do it, but haven't implemented anything yet).
- Need to create (or utilize) a color picker, because we no longer have access to the system color picker (not so bad, since it kind of sucks, and there are plenty built using web tech that are waaaay better).
- Still don't know how to allow the user to choose a font from installed system fonts.  Electron has no facility for this.
- Still need to figure out how it will be packaged for installation.
- Still having a few issues from time to time with dialog windows.  As I continue refining it gets better and better, and it's working very well now, but occasionally still have an issue, like a window doesn't open when it should.
