Help Me / Event Message Tokens
« on: February 04, 2012, 12:16:22 PM »
I created an event message to display at the end of the tournament.

"Congratulations to tonight's winner<br><name><br>For his efforts <name> takes home <br><?>"

Is there a token for the first prize amount (to be inserted where I now have <?>?

Suggestions / Final Table
« on: February 01, 2012, 09:57:11 PM »
Would it be possible to add a feature that designates one table to be the Final Table and is not used for the initial seating and player movements?  The situation is this: 32 players buy in to the tournament.  I would like to set up 5 tables; 4 tables would seat 8 players at each; the fifth table could be named "Final Table" (as opposed to "Table 5"), would have 10 seats and would not be used until there are 10 players left in the tournament.  I know I could manually make the changes when the tournament is down to 10 players, but anything that can be set before hand makes my life easier (and I'm so important that making my life easier should be at the top of everyone's list, dontcha think? LOL).

Corey, I can't thank you enough for creating and especially maintaining this program.  Your tireless efforts surely do not go unnoticed.  If you're ever in New York dinner is on me.

Suggestions / Event/Layout Fillename
« on: January 29, 2012, 11:14:57 AM »
Okay, I know I'm an idiot (just ask my wife), but I do this often.  I run tournaments at different locations so I created templates for each location to save time adjusting the various settings for each.  When I'm feeling creative I like to add new bust out sounds to the events or sometimes make adjustments to the layouts.  Inevitably I end up overwriting the wrong layout or event, usually because I wasn't sure which template I was using to begin with.  Would it be possible to include the filename of the currently loaded layout/event in their respective tabs in the settings screen?  If this is an easy addition could it also be done for the other tabs (rounds, tables, chips, prizes)?  It would be nice to know which template is currently in use for a particular tournament.

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Sound File Doesn't Play
« on: January 27, 2012, 01:25:39 PM »
I've got a strange problem.  I have an event that plays a sound file and displays a message that should fire at the end of each level.  However, the sound doesn't play and the message does not display at the end of the first level but instead both occur at the beginning of the second level (I have a 60 second pause between levels).  The sound plays and the message displays at the end of every other level as expected.  I am using the pre-defined "Level Ends" event.  Has anybody else encountered this?

Help Me / Create an event for first player knocked out
« on: November 05, 2011, 04:56:34 PM »
I have some fun sound files i would like to use for the first player knocked out.  Is there a condition that would fire when the first player in a tournament is knocked out?

Also, with the new version 3 has the ability to link a specific sound file to a specific player being knocked out been added?

Help Me / Printable List of Tokens?

Is there a way to get a printable list of the available tokens and their attributes?

Help Me / Tournament Prize Payout Calculator - Corey Please Read
« on: November 04, 2011, 07:39:01 PM »
While browsing through the forum I have come across some posts where people are asking for help with tournament prize payouts.  After some research and playing around I have created an EXCEL worksheet that creates a payout schedule that seems to work well.  Since I've started using it I have had no complaints regarding the number of payouts or the amounts for each place paid.  It uses a "RATE" formula I found online that makes calculations that I don't fully understand (LOL).  Just my way of giving something back to the community that has helped me when I needed it.  The first worksheet in the file is simple instructions on using the calculator worksheet. 

Any questions and comments are welcome.

Unfortunately the file has a .xlsx extension and cannot be attached to this post.

Corey, if it's okay with you I'll post my email so that if anybody is interested in the file I can reply to their request with the file attached.  I'll wait to hear from you before I post my email.

Help Me / Version 3 Not Loading Prior Version Settings
« on: November 01, 2011, 06:01:43 PM »
Just installed Version 3, waiting on the License Key.  Opened my tournament template and found many settings were gone, particularly Rakes.  I had created a custom Rake ($10 split into two fields, one for snacks and beverages $4 and one for an end of year party $6).  Was there something I needed to do or a setting I needed to make?

Tryed to open the BETA version so I could at least run my tournament but that won't open now, something about license agreement expiring.

Any help would be appreciated.

Help Me / User Defined Column
« on: December 28, 2010, 05:25:57 PM »
Are there plans to give the user the ability to insert a "User Defined" column that would give the user the ability to insert a user created formula into the stats?

For each tournament played I take a rake to cover the cost of snacks and beverages.  A portion of this rake is held on the side to pay for an end of year tournament (EOY).  Currently I convert the CSV file to an Excel file and add a column to calculate the EOY $ Paid-In .  The file is downloaded to our website,, so the players (about 20) can see how much they have paid-in to date as well the results of the tournaments played.  It would be nice if I didn't have to create the Excel file after each tournament and I could keep them as CSV files.

Help Me / Stats Filtering
« on: December 28, 2010, 02:38:51 PM »
I'm sure I've this question posted before but I cannot find it so I apologize for the re-post.

I keep stats yearly for our league.  With close to 200 tournaments played and saved in the "tournaments" folder filtering the stats has become time consuming.  I realize the filter is searching through all of the saved tournaments for those that match the criteria (I use date played).  I'm thinking I should set-up a new folder called "Tournaments 2011" and save all the tournaments played in 2011 in there (there will be about 80 or so).  If I do this, what settings do i need to change and where are they located?

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Tokens
« on: November 19, 2009, 12:19:34 PM »
First, thanks for a great program.  I love the ability to customize everything.

Now for my question.  I would like to display the buy-in amount going to the prize pool, the bounty amount, and the rake as separate amounts on the tournament screen.  When I set up a tournament the buy-in includes the amount of the per player rake.  Is there a token or the ability to create a token that would subtract out the per player rake from the buy-in?  I would like the display to look like this:

$100 Buy-In  $10 Bounty   $10 Food & Beverages

In this scenario I would put $110 in the "Buy-in" field, $10 in the "Per-player rake" field, and $10 in the "Bounty Chip Cost" field on the game tab.  However, the "Tournament Information" Cell in the layout tab will display this on the screen:

$110 Buy-In   $10 Bounty   $10 Food & Beverages
