Agreed 110% !! As someone who runs tournaments while also playing, I would find a mobile, remote interface ideal, so I don't have to get up in the middle of a hand to deal with busting out or rebuying a player.

Help Me / Help with Rebuy Message
« on: May 09, 2014, 03:26:33 PM »
We play a tournament where players can rebuy if they bust out until the end of the 4th round. After that, rebuys are disabled. What I need help with is this: After the 4th round, if I bust out a player that hasn't had a rebuy, I get prompted to see if the player wants to rebuy to keep his seat. Since I already set the rebuy levels to end after 4, shouldn't I never get this prompt later in the tournament?

I am able to disable the prompt after I get it the first time, by selecting the "Don't prompt for rebuys" checkbox, but in my opinion, I should never even see it once we've gone past the 4th level.

Is there any way to address this? I thought about trying to use an event to set the token "RebuysOver" to 1, but I wasn't sure that I could do that via the events, nor was I sure that was the token that needed change.

Help Me / Question about events
« on: May 30, 2013, 12:42:18 PM »
I am beginning to set up some events, and have successfully added various sounds and messages. I'd like to find out what things can be set as "Program arguments" when setting up a "Run program" event. Can I send tokens as program arguments?

What I am looking to do is to set up an event to occur when the tournament ends that sends the <prizes> token, as text, out to an autoit program that I am writing that will process the data.

Maybe this is already possible, but if not, I would find this useful. I use The Tournament Director to run 3 different poker leagues in my neighborhood.

At the end of each tournament, we save the tourney, and export several items (tourney summary, stats, prizes, lifetime stats, etc...). We use these exported files to update our league web site. We always export them, and always export in the same format. Would it be possible to add something like these?
1. The ability to tell the program which pages to export, and their format, and where to save, and have the program automatically export these when the tourney ends. (You might need to set a default naming convention, like <save file name>_prizes.html or <date-time>_player_stats.csv or whatever)

2. The ability to export the data via the events processor already in use. The idea would be to set an event on tournament end that would do the following: Export the aforementioned stats, ether via a save preference, or via a command line, then once the exports have occurred, email those stats to our webmaster. The email process might just be the ability to execute a script, like exists already. 

3. The ability to tell the program to export data via an "api"-like interface, where I have a batch file or vbs script that basically tells the program to do the exports the data for me. This is similar to #2, but isn't dependant on the events processor.

My ideal choice would be #2, especially if there are other things that can be done, kind of like your status updates. Then I could write events for each round, or each bust out that do specific things.

I think that this, combined with your status updates feature would be very valuable to those of us that run league web sites.

Thanks again for such a great program!
