So, I have my individual tournament points set as follows: n - r + 1 + if(r == 1, 3)+ if(r == 2, 2) + if (r == 3,1). That is 3 bonus points for 1st, 2 bonus points for 2nd and 1 bonus point for 1st. At the buy-in you automatically get 5 points for playing, so in a 31 person tourney we just ran, the person knocked out first got 6 points (5 for playing plus 1 for last place). 2nd person knocked out got 7 pts, 3rd person 8 pts...3rd place got 35 points, 2nd place got 37 points and 1st place got 39 points. These are all correct and all the points for each of the 6 tournaments we have run all calculate correctly for each tourney.

Now the problem. On the stats screen, I run the 'refresh' and get all my results for all players in each individual tourney which is great. All values seem to be in line. The column 'Sum' totals all the finishes for all of the tourneys. I want to drop the worst score so I have this formula in the 'Overall Scores' sum(top(5,scores)) Since I have run 6, I just want to use 5 for now. After the next tourney I will take top 6 of 7 and change it to sum(top(6,scores)). in the columns, the Overall Scores are all wrong. Some are off by 5 points, some by 1, but none seem to be spot on.

Two questions, should I have anything in the 'Create Tournament Scores using formula' box since each tournament already calculates the proper scores using the first formula above. Second, even though when I go into 'edit' on the 'Create Overall Scores' box, the "sum(top(5,scores))" shows up when the popup box appears. The actual 'statistics Profile' page shows in the 'Create Tournament Scores using formula' the following: "1 Formula". It does not show the "sum(top(5,scores))".

Sorry for the long post. My brain is fried.

It was a registry error issue. Downloaded Regpair and fixed a bunch of reg errors and now it works. Thank Corey.

Thanks. So far the two .ocx commands did not work and I kept getting errors. The other commands worked fine. I am going to use a registry cleaner to scan my system to see if I can repair it. I will update you.

Finished up our tourney last night. Saved it one last time. Shut down TD3, closed my computer lid. Opened up my computer the next day to export results of the tourney and keep getting the following pop up error:

"Script error"

An error has occurred in the script on this page.

Line: 44

Char: 9

Error: 'Bootstrap is undefined'

Code: 0

My computer did automatically download a adobe update today but that is the only thing different from when I ran TD3 last night.

That worked. Thanks.

Ok, I changed it to sum(top(4, scores)) in both the tournament scoring and overall scoring screens with the extra brackets but for some reason it is still counting all 5 tournaments in the 'Tournament Scoring' screen and 'Overall Score' shows zero for everyone.

I have used TD for a while now and for some reason, up until now, this formula: sum(top4 scores)

is not working. We play 5 tourneys and take the top 4 finishes out of the 5 total tourneys. The 'Points' column adds up all 5 finsihes and the 'Overall scoring' shows all 000 for every player. can not get it figured out.

We do change the payouts depending on the number of players. Usually 25-34 players would pay top 4. 35-44 would pay top 5 and 45+ would pay top 6.

We do a pretty standard (n-r+5) point structure for our league so everyone gets at least 5 points for playing. This season I want to pay bonus points for finishing in the money. For example, with 30 people, 30th place gets 5 points and 1st place would get 34. 4th, 3rd, 2nd and 1st are in the money. I would like to give 1 bonus point for 4th, 2 bonus points for 3rd, 3 bonus points for 2nd and 4 bonus points for 1st. I believe I may be overthinking this. How would I add these bonus points to the formula?
