Help Me / Points under V prizes show as 0 when using a formula
« on: July 30, 2007, 04:08:45 PM »

Using 2.3.6 - all looks great - but notice that the "V Prizes" token in my layout (with showpoints as true) shows the points for the prizes as "0" when I am using a formula.

Any ideas folks?

Thanks in advance!

Help Me / Yikes - Vista blues :-(
« on: April 22, 2007, 02:44:27 PM »
Hi there - now have a Windows Vista Ultimate (32) system now. All was well until I installed and tried TD 2.2.2 - it doesnt like it much; at the initialisation stage a couple of dialog boxes reared their heads (attached - dialog1 and dialog2)

Any thoughts folks?


Help Me / backup of "Saves" doesnt't seem to work fully
« on: January 12, 2007, 07:11:56 AM »

Backing up the saves folder using the backup button on the database tab was working fine until I added additional save folders under the "saves" folder. Now, whilst the backup merrily include those folders in its zip file, they appear to be empty?

Any ideas anyone?


Suggestions / A few possible features
« on: October 17, 2006, 05:22:48 AM »
Hi Corey

A few questions / requests:

1) Is there a field available that allows the number of bounty chips purchased to be displayed on the main toruney clock screen? If not, can there be? Players often ask how many are in circulation.

2) When we do rebuys during a tourney, in reality we jot these down on paper and every 20 minutes or so we update the software with that info en masse as its not always practical to do this for real in the frenzy of rebuys as they occur. What often happens when administrating the tourney this way is that some players have re-bought more than once between the updates we make. This means that I have to get the rebuy screen up, check them off for a rebuy, close it and then immediately get that screen up again to add the next re-buy (and so on for each re-buy they have done between updates). I appreciate that the way we do it means that the stats associated with the round and time they did the re-buy etc is inaccurate, however, the players (so far) are less interested in knowing exactly when they did the re-buy - so if there was away that would allow us to indicate how many rebuys they are having (with the default being 1) at the time we do that update would be very helpful.

3) Is it possible to add some export HTML preference options, e.g particulalrly background color, font etc. The export to HTML feature is excellent, however, I publish them on our own web site, and it would be nice if I could make them (at least in some way) have the look and feel of the other site pages. Some basic defaults we could set would go a long way towards that. It's not a biggy, but for now I have to edit all the pages separately to change the background color, which is not by any means the end of the world, but is a little onerous.

Just a few there for you to chew on  :)

Keep up the great work!

Help Me / Rebuy mistake
« on: August 05, 2006, 07:53:15 AM »
Hi all

I finished a tourney yesterday and realised that I hadn't added a rebuy for one player. Is there a way to "insert" a rebuy after the fact? I want to make sure the records match the actuality of the tourney. I know I can update / edit rebuys that were already registered in the software, but it doesn't seem to allow for insertion of a rebuy / addon at a later point.

I haven't figured out yet what to with the extra money left over from the "missing" rebuy. Guess I need to call the winner.........

Suggestions / Undo seat balance
« on: August 04, 2006, 09:17:02 AM »
Can it be made so that aside from "viewing" the last seat balance - it can be undone to revert tables to how they were before the balance occurred ? The Suggest Movement button would need to be reactivated as the tables will be unbalanced again.

At our tournaments we use TD to warn us when balancing is required and manually balance the tables suggested but do this manually, that is, we always move the next player who is about to be Big Blind. Therefore, we choose the "dont move anyone" button and then "drag" the player via the tables tab. If a table breaks down we just go with the TD suggestion as is.

In the event we accidentally click "ok move everyone" we have to to review the last seat balance and manually undo it. Granted this isnt too painful, however, when the number of people moving is more than a couple it is quite cumbersome.

I was horrified recently when a guy helping me wasnt too familiar with the software and clicked on randomize and followed it through re-assigning everybody! Needless to say, he doesnt help me anymore! I didnt even bother to readjust the tables and just did the whole thing the old way manually bypassing the software entirely for table management. Would have been very cool though if I could have clicked on an Undo Last Balance - perhaps allowing the Undo to do a few levels of Undo (say 4 maybe - with the option to Redo if you go back too far)

Just a thought  :)

Beta Testing / Bounty Chips
« on: July 30, 2006, 04:49:33 AM »
I ran a dummy tournament and had the winner knockout 5 others with bounty chips - yet after he "won" it showed he had purchased a bounty chip but not that he had won any others - the chips were $10 and his winnings were 1040 + 10 for the chip he had left? I was expecting it was gonna be 1040 + 60?

Also, just to be clear, I updated the bounty chips bought etc AFTER the dummy tourney ran - that is, when it ran there were no bounty chips used. I updated the "buy-ins" afterwards to add the bounty chips here n there to see the effect (as I figured TD being database based, it would acknowledge the effect of those bounty chips after the fact).

This was after trying on 2.2 b2

Help Me / late or missed bounty chip purchases
« on: July 22, 2006, 07:20:31 AM »
We tried using the bounty chip feature last night for the first time.

All was ok, but we realised after the tourney had started that we had neglected to notify TD of one player's purchase of a bounty chip. Is there a way to add this during (or after) the tourney has started (without having to reset him totally in terms of his rebuys thus far)?


Help Me / Auto resize Player Rankings
« on: July 09, 2006, 09:47:04 AM »

I have used the "auto resize" feature on the main screen and it works very well. However, how do I do the same "auto resize" on the Player Rankings screen? I ask as the menu option to Auto Resize doesn't appear for the screen (or the Seating screen either)?


Help Me / How do I Extract Best 15 Performances?
« on: July 07, 2006, 04:21:38 AM »

The league I am running is a 6-month league that is offering a a first prize of a seat package in the EPT Copenhagen event in Jan 2007. The league ends Dec 06 meaning there will have been around 25 tourneys by the end. The best performing player (most points) gets the first prize (the points are awarded for making a final table - 10 points to the winner and 1 point for 9th place).

Ok - fair enough so far. However, to allow for people not to be entirley disadvantaged should they miss a couple of tourneys due to holidays / illness etc - it was agreed that a player's perofrmance will be determined from taking the the sum of their best 15 tournament performances.

Any idea how I can do that without having to tot that all up manually?

In advance thanks

Help Me / Prize Pool Token?
« on: July 02, 2006, 11:20:11 AM »
Hi - Just started evaluating TD - so far very impressed. I am a current user of Poker Tournament Manager, but TD seems much more flexible.

Quick question though - can you show the prize pool total rather than the pot total (that is, the prizes total value in the options bit of the prizes tab)? I can see a token for pot, and also tokens to list the prizes - but I can't see one that gives the value of the totals prizes.

I ask as we do run tourneys and there are some expenses incurred which we cover by taking 5% of the pot (some food for the break basically). Using TD it seems that to cater for that we just set up prizes that add up to 95% of the pot and ensure that "share left overs" is off for all places. That should leave 5% in the kitty for us to pay off the expenses. However, I want the 95% total given not the 100% value.

Can that be done?

Thanks in advance.
