Suggestions / Tournament Bracket
« on: March 13, 2008, 12:28:29 AM »
As March is upon us and the Basketball Tournaments are in full swing... I wanted to throw a new pony into the ring.

Heads-up matches, in the TD, using seeds based on a set of stats.

* Create a tournament
* Buy-in Players
* Run a stat set
* Create a Heads-Up Seating Chart (Tournament Bracket) with the seeding based on a stat (Rank, Score, Whatever)

The guys over at Foosball Heaven have some really nice brackets which I have been printing and using. This file (PDF FILE) shows the ranked seeding scheme... 1 vs 32 - 16 vs 17. It also shows about the moving of people to the losers bracket and the good shuffle of players to insure proper matches for the whole bracket.

As it is now when I do a Heads-Up Tourney, I create a bunch of 2 player tables in the TD and do a random seat.. then fill in my brackets on paper. This method is fine, but it would be nice to allow the stat power of the TD to create a "Ranked/Seeded" Seating format.

Basically asking if it is possible tp allow for creation of a non-random seating chart based on a current stat set.

Thanks as always for listening to us for suggestions and wild ideas.

Help Me / In the Money...

We play for points, but sometimes I give away other prizes to the top finishers.

 Lets say I give first place a fixed prize of $50 in addition to the points.
On the main screen it shows 19 in the points, although only 18 are... It is counting 1st place prizes as two.

Not a big deal, but it caused some confusion over the weekend.

Has this come up in the past?

Is there another variable or a way to not count additional prizes for the same rank?

Suggestions / Standalone Statistic Compiler
« on: February 26, 2008, 07:28:28 PM »
Any chance of releasing a Standalone Statistic Compiler?

It can take a long time to run some stats and you can do nothing in the TD while it is going on.

I think it would be a great addition.

(I am currently wanting to crunch 1442 tournaments.)

Suggestions / History Export
« on: January 18, 2008, 10:03:51 PM »
Corey, I really like the History button from the Game Tab... is there anyway we could have an export option on this info? Or maybe incorporating it with the Action Summary on the Summary Tab.

Help Me / Version 2.3.4
« on: June 29, 2007, 11:34:55 PM »
I just loaded the latest release and it is not letting me seat players... ACK!

My finals are in 12 hours... is there a copy of 2.3.3 lying about?

Suggestions / Save Stats Status
« on: November 09, 2006, 01:27:30 PM »
With the latest release you added a feature to the refresh tourneys where it would only run new tourneys if you had already run a stat set... this is great.

Is there a way to save this "stat state" in the save game info? This would allow me to run stats (60+ a month/180+ per "tour") and then save a special "Stat tourney". When I have new tourneys to run stats on I could then load the stat tourney and would only have to refresh the latest ones.

Also, I know you have talked about the IE script warning while running stats(about a script slowing down etc)... is there no way for the TD to detect this and make it go away?

Thanks Corey!

Suggestions / Time Played
« on: October 12, 2006, 12:54:22 PM »
Can we get a stat field tracking time played? The system has all the info but we have no way to display it on the Stats tab.

Suggestions / Points Box on Game Tab
« on: August 31, 2006, 12:51:25 PM »
In version 1 you could just click in this box and enter the you MUST go into the other screen... can we have the ability again to simply enter the equation on the game tab without the extra step.

Beta Testing / Delete Sound Event
« on: August 23, 2006, 04:35:18 PM »
I am not sure if I sent an e-mail about this one..

Sounds Tab... Delete Sound Event.. Error.

I cannot delete a sound eventy :)

If I didn't send the error e-mail let me know and I'll post the error message here.

Suggestions / Audio Level Adjustment
« on: August 23, 2006, 12:40:43 PM »
Is it possible to add a way to adjust the audio level of the TD sound events.

I run music on the TD computer sometimes... and the level from the TD is very loud.

Suggestions / Penalty Box
« on: August 23, 2006, 12:26:42 PM »
From the TDA Rules:

" Penalties available for use by the TD are verbal warnings, 10, 20, 30, and 40 minutes away from the table and may be used with discretion. These may be utilized up to and including disqualification. A player who is disqualified shall have his chips removed from play."

Any chance of adding a "Penalty Box" to the tourney?

* UPT goes to try the latest Beta

Suggestions / 7 Months and 560 Tournaments later...
« on: June 28, 2006, 01:12:19 PM »
Here are a few thoughts.

1) I Love the export to html feature for the stats... how about allowing some TD customization of the page... Allow me to input a background color... and maybe a header image.. these could be constant variables set in the preferences.

2) Stats page.. can we make it default to sort 'descending' on click... it takes a little extra time to have to click and then click again to sort descending.

3) Stats and export. Can we export a set of html's based on the same stats? This is also where we could use a preset constant, let me input my website address and when it generates the html it can have links for each stat to sort on the webpage.. I am doing this manually currently and it can be time consuming what with all the sorts(see#2) and manually inserting all the html code.

4) The ability to rename the stats on the stat page.. Example: rename Nickname - Name.. etc.

5) Put a time stamp on the bottom of the html stats export.

6) (I think I put this in another post a month ago) But can we get some combination stats.. I would love to be able to combine Prize winnings and Points in program... at the moment I export csv, input to a speadsheet.. do the calulations and then manually produce the html... see example:

7) Any chance for dual video options.. this has been talked about before as well.. most of us are running laptops woth dual video ability... clock active on screen two while I work on the guts on the main laptop screen would indeed be amazing.

8) I think this has been taken care of as well.. but the ability on the "add player" box to "jump" to a letter.

9) Just a fantastic tool!

I have no problems as you see with the "in tournament" aspect.. just a little more flex with the stats.

Thanks again Corey
