Beta Testing / Realtime updates
« on: September 26, 2011, 04:12:04 PM »
I believe I have mentioned this before and I don't want to slow down your latest release but....

I currently have a windows script i run that on every bustout it exports the players on the players tab to a csv file.  That file is sent to my website and processed to provide realtime updates for tournament results.  Anyway, I have a two main problems with my setup.

First, I keep track of who eliminates who.  The software has no way of exporting the ID associated with the hitman.  (I have mentioned this in the past and I believe it is on your list).  I get around it by putting the ID in the nickname field which causes confusion with players that see that number and are confused by it.  I prefer the ID since I can tie it to the ID associated with the playerID on my site.

Second, the script is hit or miss depending on screen issues. I would LOVE a built in function that would allow exporting tournament info similar to the autosave.  I would prefer to just be able to export the entire tournament using one of the predefined export formats but the export tournament button is greyed out until the tournament has ended.

Thanks again!  Keep up the good work.  Being a parent myself I understand the extra demand it takes to manage work, family, and personal projects such as this.  Being a software guy myself I would be happy to volunteer some of my time to help out with debugging and code.  Not sure if you remember, I am the one that made some bounty changes to your code before it was locked down.


Beta Testing / Any update on the status of the new release?

Just wondering if you have an idea of how soon we can start beta testing the next release of TD?  No pressure... I am in the software industry myself and prefer for the release date to be "when it's done".  Just interested in your feel...  I won't hold you to it. :)

Suggestions / Crawl

Not sure if this has been requested so I apologize if it has.  I would love the ability to have a layout cell contain a crawl showing either the contents of the player rankings, entire remaining blind schedule, payout structure or any other text a user would like have scrolling across a cell.  I personally would use it to show eliminated players and their place in a crawl at the bottom of the screen.


Suggestions / ID field

I export my results to my website via csv.  I currently use the nickname field in TD to contain the database key value for the corresponding player on my website.  I see that you added an ID field which I can use for this purpose.  However, I need the same ID field for hitmen as well.  Is it possible to add a hitman ID to the export column list?

The nickname works for me now since it follows the hitman column in parenthesis.  I would like to change this since I have many players asking what the number in the parenthesis indicates on the player results page. ;-)
