Help Me / Re: new token?
« on: October 12, 2018, 09:08:51 PM »
Custom tokens aren't shown in the Token Builder dialog (maybe they should be?).  So you have to add them manually.  Just put <your-token-name> in the HTML.  It should work fine.

Hey James, can you provide a screenshot?  I suspect the vertical scrollbar is off to the right, but inaccessible.  If I recall correctly someone else reported this but I've not actually seen it.

Help Me / Re: Sort by chip count in Rankings screen

It's a bug.  No matter what you select, it uses the Custom sort.  So select the custom sort and create the sort you want. That should work.

Could certainly be a bug.  I'll check...

Edit the Player Rankings screen properties.  You can do this by right-clicking in the Game window and selecting Screen Properties or by pressing the Properties button in the Screen Controls section on the Layout tab.  Select the Player Rankings Screen.  Then choose the sort method in the Format section.  You can sort by "rank, name, chip count", or by "rank, chip count, name", or create your own custom sort.

Help Me / Re: Poker League - Formula for calculating points
« on: September 29, 2018, 11:42:46 AM »
This would go in Points for Playing (on the Game tab) or as the Tournament Score formula.

Points for Playing formula adds to (or subtracts from) each player's Points value.  Points are summed automatically on the Stats tab.

Tournament Scores creates a "Score" value for each player on the Stats tab.

In effect, Points for playing and Tournament Scores behave in exactly the same way: they create a value for each player, for each tournament, in Stats.  However, PfP allows you to have a different formula for every tournament over which you compute statistics, while Tournament Scores will be the same formula for every tournament.  It's easier to maintain/change Tournament Scores, since you only have to make a single change for every tournament, but that precludes the ability to create a value differently per tournament, which PfP does.

Overall Scores creates a value for each player out of the cumulative values created by the Stats.  For example, the Tournament Scores formula will create a value for each player for each tournament.  The Overall Scores formula takes the values created for each tournament and computes a final value.

Help Me / Re: Chops
« on: September 24, 2018, 03:29:38 PM »
When chopping any number of players, the prize money that goes with the ranks those players get is combined and divided evenly.  If you choose to divvy up based on chip stacks, the chip stacks you enter create percentages, which is how the money will be divided.  The chop process doesn't take into account if a specific player will have a lower amount than any particular prize (it probably should, but it does not currently).

To take your example, let's say the prizes are $1000 and $600 for 1st and 2nd place, and the last 2 players decide to chop.  If one player has 5000 in chips and the other player has 1500, that makes it:

6500 total chips
First player has 5000/6500 = 76.9% of the chips
Second player has 1500/6500 = 23.1% of the chips

So, first place would get $1600 X 76.9% = $1230.40
and second place would get $1600 X 23.1% = $369.60

Obviously second place would not go for this, because the chop is worth less than playing it out.

Using the ICM would yield something much more reasonable:

First place: $907.69
Second place: $692.31

ICM is definitely on my radar to add (along with lots of other things) once I get past the current issues and get the next version out.

Press Ctrl+F.  That goes for the Players tab, Database tab, and Stats tab, as well as any dialog with players listed.  You'll also find Preferences in the Behavior category on the Preferences tab.

Help Me / Re: Print player movement
« on: September 24, 2018, 11:09:27 AM »
You can print the player movement.  On the Preferences tab, select the Behavior category, then check the box next to "Show the Print button on Player Movement dialogs."

Setting up the ability to print receipts with seating assignments on buy-in/rebuy/add-on is certainly possible (as evidenced in the video), but does take some work.  I believe the person in that video used the Find feature on the various buy-in/rebuy/add-on dialogs, along with a player ID added to the database.  The ID was then used by another application to print ID cards with barcodes.  So a scan of the ID card matched an ID of a player in the TD's player database.  The Find feature had the "Auto perform action" option enabled (a checkbox on the buy-in/rebuy/add-on dialogs), so when scanning an ID card, the ID matched a single player, which caused the TD to automatically perform the action (buy-in, rebuy, or add-on) and printed a receipt with their seating assignment.

Use the Page buttons in the upper left.  Alternatively you can modify the preference to list all players in a single page (press the Preferences button in the lower left).

Help Me / Re: Casting or streaming

When I click the Chromecast extension button in Chrome, I see options to "Cast tab", "Cast desktop", or "Cast file" (which is titled "Stream a video or audio file").  When I cast my desktop, it allows me to select which one (I have two displays).  I see the entire desktop with all open applications on the TV.

This can be done in the layout pretty easily.  Are you wanting to show another screen that has multiple images on it, or just a single image?

Help Me / Re: Stats over many seasons seems wrong
« on: September 02, 2018, 09:45:43 AM »
On the Stats tab, press the Info button.  This will list all tournaments found, but omits those that were not used to compute stats.  In your case, it should list 41 tournaments.

Then uncheck the box next to "Hide tournaments that were not used to compute statistics".  You should now see 176 tournaments.  If you don't, it's probably because you've got those 135 missing tournaments in another folder, so the filter isn't filtering them out, it doesn't see them at all.  If you do have 176 tournaments, you can now see why they weren't included.  The "Status" column gives a brief description, but you can double-click a tournament and get a slightly more descriptive reason why tournament isn't included.

Still not available.  At the time of the original post, I was addressing MS updates that caused issues, and making big changes to the application to support higher screen resolutions, since they are becoming much more common.  That took quite some time to complete.  Since that became available, IE 11 has become a major issue so I am now porting the application to a new framework.  I hope when this version is done I can go back to feature updates instead of emergency work to keep the application working.

Help Me / Re: Player chip counts on seating page

The Seating Chart screen doesn't support displaying chip stacks, unfortunately.

The <seatingChart> token does, however, if you don't mind a slightly less aesthetically pleasing version.
