Help Me / Switching from two monitors back to one
« on: April 13, 2010, 01:34:22 PM »
I normally play with my laptop screen and an LCD monitor using the extended display.  A friend was holding a tournament and I decided to just take my laptop and do everything on that screen.  When I tried to buy-in the players, the buy-in dialog box wouldn't appear. 

It apparently opened on the LCD screen which wasn't connected.  I could not figure out how to force the dialogs to the LCD screen.  Rebooted, tried cascading all windows, but nothing worked.  I couldn't run the tournament with TD.  When I got home I plugged in my LCD, and there was the dialog, right where I left it.

Sort of a hassle to open every dialog in TD to make sure you have them all opening on the right screen.  Is there a way to force all dialogs and other windows to the main screen if they open on the non-existent extended monitor?

Help Me / Bounty Payouts
« on: September 30, 2009, 09:43:00 AM »
I have a tournament setup to require a $5 bounty for each player.  I ran a test and it showed four players bought the $5 bounty.  I knocked out each player, indicating who the hitman was for each bust out.  At the end of the tourney, the prizes tab shows the money won in the main prize pool, but doesn't show the bounty payouts.  The summary tab shows the bounties collected, but not a breakdown of who won the bounty money.  Are the details of the bounty payouts tracked by TD?

Help Me / Tournament Director Suggests Odd Blind Structure
« on: September 28, 2009, 08:04:49 PM »
I just bought Tournament Director. The software is great, with one exception. I'm not happy with its suggested blind structure. I can set it manually, but I'd prefer to take the suggestions, if they are reasonable.

Here's an example:

    4 hour tourney
    400 chip stacks
    1, 5, 25 and 100 chips
    20 minute rounds
    10 players
    3 re-buys (during first 3 rounds only)

The first few rounds go like this:
     Level Duration SB BB Start Time
     Round 1 20m $1 $2 0:00
     Round 2 20m $12 $24 0:20
     Round 3 20m $23 $46 0:40
     Round 4 20m $34 $68 1:00
     Round 5 20m $45 $90 1:20
     Round 6 20m $56 $112 1:40
     Round 7 20m $65 $130 2:00
     Round 8 20m $80 $160 2:20
     Round 9 20m $95 $190 2:40
     Round 10 20m $110 $220 3:00
     Round 11 20m $125 $250 3:20
     Round 12 20m $140 $280 3:40
And this is on the "relaxed" setting. The $1 chips are meaningless after the first round. The software appears to set up almost linear increases. This would make the first few rounds a major shove-fest. In the first three rounds, starting stacks go from 100BB to <10BB.

Am I missing something in the setup?
