OK I’ve tried:

Trigger: “A level starts”
Conditions: “isBreak and breakNum=1”

Trigger: “A level starts”
Conditions: “(isBreak) and (breakNum = 1)”

Trigger: “The clock ticks”
Conditions: “(isBreak) and (breakNum = 1) and (secondsLeft = 899)”

Each time I get:

The conditions expression has an error. Are you sure you want to continue?

And obviously it doesn’t work.

I’ve got a funny suspicion that you’re going to tell me it’s because I’m using Ver. 2.5.13


Help Me / Different Break lengths
« on: October 29, 2012, 11:35:28 AM »
I have 3 different break lengths in one of the tournaments I'm organising. 15 mins for colouring up, 30 mins for a buffet and 10 mins comfort break. How do I create an event for each seperate break with different sound files?


They certainly go up to 30,000-60,000 - thats the level I got busted out in 5th place at the 'G'


I've got the blind announcements up to 10,000-20,000.

I know they go higher - does anyone have them. I need up to 50,000-100,000

Many thanks in advance.


Help Me / Prize - fixed 'saver'
« on: May 12, 2012, 12:09:35 PM »
In my tournaments I pay out a fixed prize for last place. This is always the same as the entry money paid which is £15

So if I'm paying say 4 prizes then:

1st = 50%
2nd = 30%
3rd = 20%
4th = £15 (fixed)

Up to now on each tournament I simply add a 4th prize of £15 and TD automatically adjusts the first three prizes.

Is there a way of writing this into the prize configuration to save me doing it manually?


Checked the settings:

Under 'Preferences' - 'Behaviour' - at the bottom of the list under 'Table Tab Settings' - the ONLY two boxes checked are:

'Automayically suggest player movement'
'When moving players, seat as close to seat 1 as possible'

Just tried again and got seats 1, 3, 4, 7, 9

It's strange that you cannot reproduce this!

For me it won't be a problem, I'll just continue with v2.5.13 but others may have similar problems.


OK I've tried a few things and I think I've found the problem!

My template for my games has me permanently locked into table 1 seat 1 - this is to give me easy access to chips for rebuys and add ons etc and update computer when people bust out.

Table 1 has 9 seats.

So I load the template and add 4 more players (preferences 'Buy-In Players' is checked)

Go to 'Tables' tab and press 'Seat Players' click ok to move and they are randomly placed but not in seats 1-5 just done it again and the seating is: 1, 2, 3, 6, 9

This only seems to happen when a player is locked in seat 1 - if there is no one locked in seat 1 (all seats available) then it does keep players in seats 1-5

Ver2 keeps plyers in 1-5 regardless of whether a player is locked in seat 1

Hope this helps.


Sorry Corey - I have now loaded 2.5.13 got rid of IE8, installed IE7 and initialized the database as instructed - and guess what...

ALL IS FINE - clock runs smoothly and everything is working just as I want it.  ;D

I did try ver3 with IE7 and it also runs smoothly so the problem is IE8

However there is still a problem with seating players in v3 - I made sure that:
'Auto seat' was unchecked
'Automatically randomize seating at final table' was unchecked
'When moving players, seat players as close to seat 1 as possible' was checked
On a 9 seat table I entered 5 players and it put them in seats 1, 3, 5, 6, 7  ???

I'm glad we've sorted v2 out - I think TD(v2) is a great program but v3...

Maybe I should just buy a new Laptop - nah 1MB memory and 80GB HD - enough for any man - I remember the ZX80 - ZX81 - Spectrum - aahh happy days!!!

Thanks again for the help

Thanks for the replies. Please bear in mind I'm using 2.5.12 not 2.5.13 - I don't know if that matters or not!

When I launch Ver 2.5.12 I get a warning message 'Name: TypeError: 10 - 5009 Description: 'MFDB' is undefined Message: 'MFDB' is undefined'
When I click OK the next message box states 'There was an error initializing the database.

I tried following Corey's instructions to initialize the database but can't find where to Check "Always overwrite existing files"

On re-starting 2.5.12 I still get the same error messages.

I must stress that everything really was OK before I put ver3 on.


Help Me / NEVER NEVER NEVER mess with something if it works!!!!!!!!
« on: March 09, 2012, 06:12:26 PM »
I have been happily using version 2.5.12 on my laptop (Old with XP but I only use it for poker) with no problems.

A little popup told me there's a 'new version' so I thought OK why not, it should be better...        shouldn't it???

So I downloaded it sent off for my new licence number etc. and tried loading it - I should have been concerned when it needed IE8 but undeterred I upgraded to IE8 and continued to load the new 'better' version.

I have my tournaments set up in such a way that when loaded all I have to do is add players, which automatically buys them in, seat them randomly and press start and we're away. On the ‘Add Player To Tournament’ screen, I only want one list of names, how do I get rid of the other columns?

When seating players, I have a 9 seat table and an 8 seat table. When seating 8 players on the 9 seat table the old version would always put them in seats 1-8 leaving seat 9 free. The new version varies the ‘free’ seat despite checking the ‘seat players as near to seat 1 as possible’ in preferences. How do I persuade it to leave seat 9 free?

Now the BIG problem:

The clock does not display correctly. It seems to be keeping correct time overall but the display hesitates
so instead of:
15.00 – 14.59 – 14.58 – 14.57 – 14.56 – 14.55 – 14.54 – 14.53 – 14.52 – 14.51 – 14.50 – etc.
You get:
15.00 – 14.59 – 14.58 – 14.58 – 14.58 – 14.55 – 14.54 – 14.54 – 14.52 – 14.51 – 14.50

I was so impressed I tried to launch version 2.5.12 only to find all the layouts and database were missing and it couldn’t find them. (yes I know they’re not ‘lost’ but it will take time to set it all up again). It seems that this new version has ‘high jacked’ the data and hidden it from the earlier version!!!

I’m sorry but I can’t see the improvements or benefits of this upgrade and I really regret the change, I’ve had nothing but problems. However now that I have upgraded I need to get it sorted – especially the clock.

So to recap:
1.   How do I get rid of unwanted columns on the ‘Add Players To Tournament Screen’?
2.   How do I persuade it to leave the higher numbered seats clear?
3.   What can be done to improve the clocks erratic display?

No doubt I will find other problems but these are the main ones for now.

Well I think I've just about done with this >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

I tried reducing the background down in stages right down to 800x500. I tried setting every row, column and cell to the backgroumd jpeg. I wondered about an Internet Explorer issue so I downloaded the latest service pack 3 for XP and then tried all of the above again.

NOTHING HAS WORKED - I am now just getting angry and frustrated!

I have XP running on both the Desktop and Laptop.

I have tried changing the background to a smaller image. I have also tried changing the screen resolution - tried several but left it on 1280x600 in the end.

STILL NO BACKGROUND :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

I am on the point of giving up!


PS I have also tried changing from jpeg to gif.
