Help Me / Some strange behavior
« on: March 31, 2015, 07:07:11 PM »
I recently used a couple of features that I hadn't used in a few months, and when I started to use them again, I noticed some strange things.

First off, I tried to export html from the Game tab and found that my default Tournament Export file had changed back to the program supplied one. (I made my own file so that it would render html on our league website; I had been using this file successfully for a several years).  I went back to the Preferences tab and reset it to the file that I wanted, but when I went to another tab in the program, sure enough, it reset itself again.  Bottom line: the Default that I set it to doesn't stay set.

Now here's where it gets really weird:  I also discovered that, again when exporting html, as soon as I press the Save button, for some unexplained reason, the screen transitions engage themselves.  Again, I had previously disabled them, but now the screens were transitioning.  I went back and disabled them again, repeated the process, and they enabled themselves once again.

So, has anyone else experienced this?  If so, any solutions?

I just began to notice that some of my buttons don't work, and cause TD to freeze on the Settings screen.  When I push particular buttons, it causes this behavior.  I can only escape by using the Windows task bar to close the program.  Interestingly enough, I can still run a tournament (I usually will copy a previous tournament, then reset it); it seems to be buttons involved with set-up things.

I went through the entire program to find the offending buttons, and here is a list of what freezes TD up:

Game Tab:  Quick start, Fixed Rake
Rounds Tab:  New Round, New Break
Prizes Tab:  New Prize, Sort Prizes, Chops, New, Export
Tables Tab:  New, Export
Layout Tab:  Layout Controls: Clear, New, Built-in, Import/Export, Settings Screen Controls: ALL  Other: Alerts
Events Tab:  New Sound, Import Sound, New Event, Sort Sounds, Sort Events, New
Chips Tab:  New Chip, New Chipset, New
Rules Tab:  New
Database Tab:  Find Player, Delete Players, New League, Edit Seasons, Restore
Stats Tab:  View
Preferences Tab:  Reset, Status Message, Category, Rakes, New Rake
Hotkeys Tab:  Reset Hotkeys

It's possible I might have even missed some, but this is what I came across so far.

I checked the other thread about the other major problem that was occurring earlier last year and applied the fixes as suggested, and I also have Auto Update enabled.

Anyone come across this before that might be able to help?

Hi Corey.

I've just experienced something that I think you should be aware of; perhaps I'm doing something wrong?

I was just reading Timmer's last topic entitled, "Is this new?", and he mentioned something about the ability to add background on the player rankings and blinds pages, etc.  Me, being a curious sort, thought that I would check it out.  I went over to the Player Rankings page, right clicked and selected "Properties".  Not only did the properties not show up, but I now could not navigate away from that screen.  I also could no longer right click, or call up the settings.  So for all intents and purposes, the program kinda froze.  The only way that I could shut it down was to close the program through Windows on the bottom of the screen ("Close window").

Also, when I shut TD down and restarted it, I went to the Layout tab, clicked Properties, and the same thing happened.  This time, I got an error message:

'this.getElement(...)' is null or not an object (LayoutTab, SeatingChartPage: 1)
 at openDialog(SettingsDialog)
 at SettingsDialog.openDialog()
 at SettingsDialog.enterTab()
 at Hotkey.handleCommonHotkeyActions(Hotkey.Binding)
 at GameWindow.hotkey()
 at GameWindow.hotkeyHandler()

After this happened, I could no longer launch TD, and would now need to reboot my computer to get it to run again.

Any thoughts?

Update:  This seems to be happening on any screen when I right click and try to go to that item's properties.

Help Me / Problem with printing receipts
« on: November 04, 2011, 05:08:45 PM »

I just ran a mock tournament using TD3, just to see if everything worked OK.  I do like a lot of the new features with this update, and after some tweaking here and there, everything seemed to be fine.  As always, another outstanding job Corey!

The only problem that I have encountered is when I'm printing receipts.  While most of the receipts will print normally, occassionally I will receive an error message.  In a tournament of anywhere between 15-30 players, this will happen around 4 or 5 times.

Here's the message that I see:

An error has occurred in the script on this page

Line: 295
Char: 1
Error: Call was rejected by callee.
Code: 0
URL: res://ieframe.dll/preview.js

Do you want to continue running scripts on this page?

After closing the error message, I would then need to go to the receipts folder and then print the affected receipt manually.

I also would see this message every now and then while running 2.5.12, and also with 2.6.5 Beta.

I have a feeling this might not be a TD problem at all, but rather an IE thing.  Anyway, I thought I would post something here in case anyone had any thoughts on this...

Beta Testing / beta receipts
« on: September 20, 2011, 10:04:08 PM »
Hi Corey.

I think I found a bug in the receipts funtion of the current beta release.

In the Preferences tab, it is possible to set different salespersons for each receipt.  However, when doing the buy-ins, it is now not possible to select a salesperson (you currently can do this on version 2.5.12), despite having multiple salepersons on record.

Not really a big deal for me, but I know there are some others out there that are using this feature, and I just thought that I would point this out.

Of course, I could be doing something wrong....

Help Me / Need help with average points
« on: June 07, 2011, 12:19:43 AM »
Hi all.

I run a league in which we keep stats, one of which is average points.  All players are awarded points based on how they finish.  We also have a satellite and a championship tournament, where no points are awarded.

What I noticed is that when I do the end of the season stats, while all of the points and $$$ stats are correct, the average points totals are thrown off because TD includes the satellite and championship tournaments as awarding "zero" points to everyone that played in those tourneys.

My question is:  Is there any way that I can filter out the satellite and championship tournaments in the average points stat, but keep them for the other stats?

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Octagon Tables
« on: July 17, 2008, 02:20:48 PM »
Hi everyone.

One of the really nice features of this new version of TD allows you to display an image of a poker table for the Seating Chart, rather than just a list or a diagram.  Corey included images of racetrack and round poker tables, and these are great.  I'm going to be hosting a tournament which is going to use the good ol' octagon tables, so I thought I would go about designing something that I could use here, and it came out great!

I thought I would share this in case anyone else would like to use them for their layouts.

Help Me / Moving Players
« on: June 30, 2008, 02:31:07 PM »
Hi Corey.

I finally had the opportunity to run a multiple table tournament using this new version of TD (the last two that I ran were our satellite and championship, where both had only one table).  As with the older version, I have TD suggest movement when the tables become unbalanced.  One of the choices that that old version had that doesn't seem to be in the new version is that you had the choice of not accepting the move, but being taken to the tables menu.  As I like to move my players in relation to the button, this was always a helpful feature.  Now it seems that you only have the choice of accepting the move or not.  If not, then the menu would close, and I would then have to go to the table menu myself, which adds a couple of extra keystrokes.

Did I inadvertently change a setting here, or is this feature gone for good?
