Help Me / Player Movement Issue
« on: April 05, 2009, 09:32:33 PM »
I run monthly 2 table tournies.  Been noticing that for the last few tournaments that whenever I bust out a player it pops us a message about not enough seats for players (which isn't the case).  I've just been ignoring it.  When we got down to 4 or 5 players this time I noticed it seated 4 players at my empty table that weren't even bought in.

I generally move players manually anyways so I went ahead and disabled the auto seating and player movement suggestion.  I was always taught to move the player left of the BB.  Since disabling it, I started a test tournament and the message seems to be gone.  Anyone ever get this message or see TD seat players that aren't bought in?

Well, I was able to recover my files, but I didn't have auto-save enabled so no dice for the current tournament, but at least I got my templates and all my old ones.  No big deal really.

If you ever need to recover data from a hard drive, these are pretty handy to have around.  I'd been wanting to get one for a while but never got around to it.  This gave me a good excuse.  Took about 5 minutes to get all my stuff back.

Easier than having to put it into another computer.

I feel for you.  I run a forum and the guy hosting it won't upgrade my software.  I have set it so I manually have to activate each user before they post, and if they don't fill out their profile I assume they are spammers.  But until he upgrades I can only delete one account at a time!  Not fun when they sign up with thousands of accounts!!!!

So, right as heads up started my laptop completely died.  Powered off and wouldn't turn back on.  This was the first time that I wasn't tracking everything on paper as backup.  Thankfully it was only a 12 person tournament, and I already had the prizes counted out etc.... so we were able to rebuild everything on paper from memory.  Also, thank god I kept our tournament/season results in a spreadsheet on my home PC.  I'd have been up a creek without that info.

Hopefully I can get it working again or at least pull the hard drive out and recover my tournament files.  I'd hate to start over. 

I'm assuming that even if I had auto-save enabled (which I'm not sure I did), it probably didn't save the tourney data for this one?

Lessons learned: 
Keep a hard copy during the tournament.
Keep a backup timer of some sort with you (I had one)
Backup your tournament files to another PC, or external device.  As an IT guy, I know better but didn't do it.

Just wanted to drop a line and say hi.

Tested the software at our final tournament last season and it was a big hit.  Just purchased it for the start of the new season and ran our first tournament on it.

The players love the display and I love not having to remember the next blind level, announce how much time is left, etc...  Not to mention it figuring out our payouts and points.  I need to spend some time learning about setting up a season and tracking the points, dropping tournaments, etc... but so far everything is working great.  Had a little problem with moving players and making my final table but I think that was user error.

Sorry for preaching to the choir here, but just wanted to say that it's a hit in our league!

I'm sure I'll have questions, but I'll spend some time reading and searching first.
