Help Me / Re: Display Chips per player on "before game" screen?
« on: October 26, 2012, 01:49:44 AM »
Thanks for the quick reply - I don't mind getting my hands dirty :-)
I think I need to rephrase my question: I would like to display the starting chips per player of each chip. Fx. 10 x $1, 10 x $5, 5 x $10 and so on.

Help Me / Display Chips per player on "before game" screen?
« on: October 23, 2012, 03:55:05 AM »

I would like to show the chips per player on the "before game" screen, but can't figure out if it is possible. It should be like the Chips-cell with images of the chip and then with a chip count - is that possible?

Kind regards,

Where would you like to display the picture? I have pictures of the players who are going to play in the tournament scrolling over the "before game" screen.
It is of course only possible if I know in advance who will be playing so that I can insert the images in my layout:-)

It is done using this:

<img src="file:///C:\Users\me\Picture1.jpg" hspace=10 border="0"><img src="file:///C:\Users\me\Picture2.jpg" hspace=10 border="0"> and so on.....

I looked under the Preferences tab, but can't see the white box. I am running version 2.5.12.

I have read about the "dashboard" and would like to know how enable/disable this. Currently my settings screen looks like the attached picture.
I saw a picture posted under the beta section, where additional information was displayed under the Tournament icon at the top.

Please let me know how to use this feature :-)

Great inspiration! I have seen some very good ideas for my poker league here and I think I will look closer at a bracelet for next season. This season I have rewarded the winner from each game with a badge - the winners will then wear this bagde (or several if he has won more than one game...) at the next tournament.

The badge is made using the attached image, which I sent to a local badge maker.

Of course ;-) Thanks a lot! Such a simple solution but still one I couldn't figure out.

Help Me / Formula problem
« on: October 29, 2009, 09:15:33 AM »
I am trying use the following formula for tournament scoring:


When I test it using an excel sheet with the following values: nh=0, r=1, pp=300, n=8 I get 58
When I test it TD I get a value of 20....

In excel I get the following values:

1st. 58   
4th. 21   

What am I doing wrong in TD?

Any help is appriciated, thanks!

Hi Curliem,

I have actually just looked at this myself and what you need to do is to modify the "properties file" found in the "lang"-folder in your Tournament Director installation folder (mine is located in the following path: C:local disk\programmer\Tournament director\lang\eng-us

The file is called and you can modify it using Notepad.

Change it into whatever words you need for table, player and seat, fx.

# The Tournament Director
# Copyright (c) 2004 - 2009 Corey Cooper

# Game Window, Seating Chart Screen

SeatingChart.Context.AutoScroll=Auto Scroll Seating Chart
SeatingChart.Context.DontAutoScroll=Don't Auto Scroll Seating Chart
SeatingChart.Context.Properties=Seating Chart Properties


# {1} = table name, {2} = seat number
SeatingChart.TableAndSeat={1} Platz {2}

I advice you to make a backup of the original beforing saving the new version. You also need to restart TD before the changes take effect. And also make sure you name your table fx."Tisch 1" when creating the table ;-)

I am no expert, but this worked for me;-)

Help Me / A new formula needed
« on: August 18, 2009, 07:39:39 AM »
First of all, thanks for a great piece of software!

I am trying to create a formula for the tournament scoring for my home poker league (8-10 players), but can't figure out a good formula. I want it to favour the first 3 positions and also take into account the number of hits and the size of the prize pool.

I have tried with something like this: ((log10(pp))*(log10(pp))+sqrt(n)+nh)/(1+r)
But I would prefer to have a formula not resulting in points with weird decimals. I know using the LOG function should then be avoided, but need some inspiration from you guys ;-)

I have also tried this: (pp/(n*10))+nh+(sqrt((n/r)*10)) but I would like it to favour the top 3 a bit more.....

All suggestions are welcome!
