Help Me / Voice Recognition commands
« on: February 27, 2014, 05:55:19 PM »
Didn't know where to post this...

Is anyone using any voice recognition software to run the tournament?

I understand running the software isn't difficult(a few keystrokes and mouse clicks).
However it would be so convenient to keep shuffling and dealing while running the system with voice commands.

I'm not suggesting implementing this feature into the software(I'm presuming that would be fairly difficult to code) but if anyone is doing it and/or has any suggestions.

Help Me / Summary export template
« on: February 17, 2014, 04:44:51 PM »
I've poked around for this and haven't found anything, and let me preface with the fact that my coding knowledge is novice at best.

Our home games have gotten a bit bigger over the years than originally anticipated and we've discovered that a fixed hosting fee doesn't always cover the costs. This year we've all decided to pay the host of the game $2.00 per re-buy.

now to my problem...

Is there a way to edit the summary export template html to do the math and of course place it on summary once it's exported?

Here is the html I'm working with:

   <td class="fliedname">Host Fee:</td>
   <td class="fieldvalue"><rebuycount>*2</td>
   <td class="fieldvalue">(## x 2)</td>

Obviously this doesn't work. Not sure what needs to happen in order to make it work.

Thank you for your help. I know I don't explain things very well sometimes so if more information is needed, let me know.

General Discussion / Shake up the game!
« on: August 24, 2013, 04:36:30 PM »
I run two home games a week (Monday and Thursday). My Thursday game is a big one that we have dialed in pretty well. The Monday game was created for "learning the game" purposes but we are finding that a lot of the Thursday players are showing up on Monday too just to line their pockets(so to speak).

I've given up on the teaching thing for Monday and am looking to shake the game up a little. I've bounced a few things around but nothing has quite stuck or felt "right"
i.e. Unlimited re-buys for the first hour when at or under "X" chips (felt like I was compromising the integrity of the game)
Bounty tournaments(fun but didn't get enough players to "opt in" for the bounty
Speed poker (5 min blinds, no breaks (got several tournaments complete in an evening but was more bingo than poker))

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Just want something that will make it different enough from Thursday yet still be poker.

oh...I should also mention that where I live not many know how to play anything other than texas hold'em so that has to be the game played both nights.

Help Me / 2 Questions (text color & separate prizes)
« on: December 23, 2011, 12:09:10 AM »
I'm not sure how possible it is (my coding knowledge lacks in epic proportions)

1. I'd like different colors for my prizes. The "winners" token displays 1 color is it possible, via html code or edit the config files, to allow each prize to display in a different color? i.e. 1st place $...(Gold) 2nd place $...(silver) 3rd place $...(bronze) random $...(red)

2. Is it possible to separate the prizes into multiple rows and/or columns?

Help Me / Tournament reset button
« on: December 11, 2011, 12:28:22 AM »
So apparently the reset button in version 3 doesn't clear your "auto-save" setting like it did in version 2. I accidentally wrote over last nights tournament with a reset fresh copy of no data! Anyway to recover that data?

Suggestions / Column names
« on: December 01, 2011, 11:39:20 PM »
We have the ability to rename columns in the "player tab" and "stats" tab. Extend that function to the database tab.

There are fields there that can be utilized for other info than what is required.

Help Me / rake and summary tab
« on: January 20, 2011, 11:03:34 PM »
This is probably covered somewhere (like in the help tab of the system lol) I'm just feeling a bit lazy. (Honestly I poked around a bit and couldn't find it)

I have 2 "per player" rakes. 5.00 and .50

Does it or is it possible for the summary tab to show these two rake totals separately? or even to find this information elsewhere? Granted I could do the math but as I mentioned previously I'm lazy.

Help Me / Season(s) reset -SOLVED-
« on: November 07, 2010, 08:51:19 PM »
I poked around a bit and it's probably somewhere just couldn't locate it.

We play once a week with 4 seasons/quarters (jan, feb, mar[apr, may jun] etc...)

My goal is to "reset" the points at the end of the year and start fresh. Will I need to set up new seasons for the new year? Is there an easier way to go about it?

Help Me / -SOLVED-Layout Screens Help
« on: September 16, 2010, 02:12:06 PM »
How do I get a custom layout screen to auto scroll like the player rankings screen?

What I am doing is taking the statistics tab info and exporting it to an html and posting it as one of my pre-game layout screens and I would like it to auto scroll.

It's very possible I'm doing it the hard way too so if there is an easier and/or better way don't hesitate to let me know.

Help Me / Prize allocation
« on: August 26, 2010, 03:51:40 PM »
I didn't go searching for a solution to this(figured that the problem is unique enough or I'm just stupid enough) lol

In my tournaments I payout the top 2 players if my buy-in's are less that 25. If I have 25-39 buy-ins I pay top 3. 40+ buy-ins = top 4.

Tournament starts with 24 people. 1 busts out and is awarded a random prize. Another busts out but buys back in (making the 25th buy-in and changing the prizes)

I would at that point load a different prizes template and have now lost the random prize player.

Is my only solution to manually award the random prize to the player?

(I apologize in advance if this is confusing I sometimes don't explain things very well)

Help Me / -SOLVED- heads-up Event
« on: August 07, 2010, 05:51:59 PM »
I'd like an event to trigger when my tournaments go "heads-up".

I was thinking that the trigger could be "player busts out" and the condition specify 3rd place.

I understand that the event may need to be modified at the beginning of every tournament based on how many players I have.

Any suggestions or thoughts on how to do this?

Help Me / -SOLVED- Event Trigger help
« on: August 06, 2010, 01:54:54 PM »
I've searched around a bit for a solution but couldn't find one. It's probably there somewhere and I just search incorrectly.

2 help questions.

#1 I can't seem to get the "random player is chosen for a prize" event trigger to display a message on the screen. Here is what I have selected.

Prize tab
Recipient: Random player
Amount: Non-monetary (swag prize)
Display: Name (whatever the swag prize is)

Events tab
Trigger: random player is chosen for a prize
Hotkey: none
Conditions: none
Action: (1)Display message <prizename> Awarded to <name> Congratulations!

I have other events set up for when players bust out (funny sounds/message). Are these conflicting with the "random prize" event?

Question #2

Is the <randomname> token at all related to the random player chosen using the random player dialog box from the players tab? If so can the <randomname> token be used in the "display message" field under the controls tab to display the randomly chosen player?
