Title: 2 minor problems
Post by: _Hithere_ on January 09, 2007, 10:58:08 PM
I have TD buttons on my pregame screen to allow me to buy-in and seat players.  (The screen has required buttons, a player count, the current time, and a full screen seating chart, which was a great idea by the way.)  To simplify everything I set the options to automatically mark players paid in full and automatically buy a player in when I use TD buttons "add player" and "new player".
The add player button works fine, but using the new player (adding a player not previously in the database), I still have to go in and manually mark them paid.  I am sure this is an oversight, but I wanted to let you know since it should be an easy fix.

Also, I suspect since the game clock is not running, I need to do a manual screen refresh to get the player count to update after adding players.  Is there a way to set the pregame screen to refresh periodically without using a countdown clock on the screen?  And would adding a countdown clock solve this problem?

I added the ability to buy players into the tournament at the same time that they are added from the database when it was requested from several people.  It seemed like a good match.  I didn't think to add it to the New Player dialog at the time, and it had not been requested.  I believe the most common scenario is that the majority of players are in users' databases already.  I can put it on the to-do list.

You should never have to manually refresh the screen to get anything to update.  When you add a *new* player to the tournament, they are not bought-in (as you noted).  The Entries count will not update until the player has bought-in.

On the first topic, that was what I expected.

On the second part:  When I add players using the "add-player" TDbutton from my pre-game screen with both automatic buy-in and mark paid in full boxes checked, an "entries" field display on the same screen does not refresh to include those buy-ins until I exit the tournament screen and come back.

You're right - that's a bug.  Will be fixed in next release.
