Help Me / Receipt tokens....
« on: November 15, 2017, 04:04:12 PM »
I've just acquired a TM88 receipt printer and thought about having a go at configuring receipt printing  ;D

I'm using v3.4 final.
All is good.. apart from one slight omission/bug which is when printing "Add-on" receipts, the <tablename> and <seatnumber> tokens are not populated  :o... these are populated when printing buy-in and re-buy receipts.

Anyone else seen this? or got a workaround?

Beta Testing / Vanishing settings with Extended Display
« on: February 15, 2014, 11:29:05 AM »
Hi Corey,

I've just started "playing" with v3.3b1 and using an extended display.. all seems to work as advertised on the tin (game window on extended display and settings and dialogs etc on the main display  :)).
However, if I select any of the built-in screens (seating plan, rounds, player movement etc) for display on the game window, and then subsequently want to get back to the main tournament display by pressing F2 (tournament), the settings on the main display vanish giving an empty desktop  :( .. pressing F1 gets the settings back - is this expected behaviour? or am I being dumb and there is there a hidden setting somewhere which will persist the settings on the main screen when using extended displays? (or both of the former!!)

Beta Testing / 3.2B3 - Receipt.html
« on: February 21, 2013, 12:38:12 PM »
Hi Corey,

Just been trying receipts and came up with an oddity.

If I edit the receipt.html in the \users\xxx\documents\the tournament director 2\data\templates which I believe is set by default as the receipt file to use for the tournament (Receipts template in the preferences is set as "<datastore>\templates\receipt.html"), then every time I produce a receipt as a result of a print receipt action, the receipt file I have edited gets overwritten with the default receipt.html file from the install folder... ???

If I change the filename of my receipt file and reference it in the receipts preferences, then it works fine...

Have I missed something?

Help Me / Table Balancing - Player Movement - random??!
« on: November 28, 2012, 05:56:00 PM »
I presume the player(s) chosen for automatic table balancing are random?

I've had a couple of occasions where for a whole tournament, when TD re-balances tables it consistently chooses the same player to move tables! - it's become a bit of a laughing point, as soon as the same person gets chosen twice in a row.. you can almost guarantee that he/she will be moving around the card room for the whole night!!!

Anyone else seen this? or found a way of avoiding the situation?

General Discussion / TD3 - First Round duration
« on: August 06, 2012, 07:07:41 PM »

Has anyone else noticed (or is it just me?!  :-\) that using TD3 (3.1.1), the first round duration (when a tournament has been started) takes the value of the second round, ie. If I set up Round 1 to have a duration of 15 minutes, and Round 2 to have a duration of 20 minutes, the Tournament shows the duration of round 1 to be 20 minutes (and not the defined 15 minutes!), Round 2 is correct and is displayed as 20 minutes.

Suggestions / rebuy/add-on - original positions
« on: July 17, 2012, 06:42:08 AM »
I run a tournament where everyone (including those who bust out) get a top-up (rebuy/add-on) after the first hour of the tournament - if I use TD as intended, players get moved about as the tables get re-balanced etc, but I'd like to be able to return everyone to their original positions when the add-on/rebuy/top-up occurs (otherwise I end up spending the next 10-15 minutes trying to get everyone seated/chips moved!) .
So, the suggestion is: Add a mechanism whereby the original seating plan can be saved/restored.
