Suggestions / Special Prizes
« on: June 26, 2015, 08:24:52 AM »
Hi,

My request/suggestion here is to have a bit more control on special prizes that we setup in TD.

For instance, if one of our directors takes part in a tournament, a bounty is automatically put on his head for a free buy-in.
That said, I could not find a way to easily display the winner of such bounty on my tournament screen as it happens.

Also, since we do not normally track hitman in our tournament, I turned off the option of display possible hitman when I bust players out. Would it be possible to keep that option turned off but have it overridden when a hitman is REQUIRED?

Also, could you have a trigger added to include prizes (you have one for random player prize but not the other ones)?

TIA

Suggestions / Last Man Standing
« on: June 26, 2015, 08:16:32 AM »
Hi Corey,

Last Man Standing are getting very popular over here. This is where players from my tournament opt to pay a surcharge to compete against a smaller subset of my tournament field (every players that opted in).

At the beginning, players where doing that among themselves, but we quickly saw a way to promote other events by doing it ourselves (entry for satellites or buy-ins to other tournaments).

In any case, there are no simple way to have TD keep track of those and display relevant info on the tournament screen.

So my suggestion is to add a side game capability to TD.

Do you think this possible?

TIA
Michel

Too bad...

Any way this could make its way into a future release of TD?

I feel we are already so close!  ;)

So there is no way for me to have TD randomly choose a player prior to the tournament start and have that name displayed on the screen?!?

Is this done on the Prize Tab?

Because according to the help text on "Random Player" it appears that it should have done the trick...

Sorry but does one install and run the beta?

Since I have initiated/requested some of those changes, i kinda feel obligated to test them out?  ;)

TIA

I am confused now...

When does the "software" pick a player for a prize? (if not through the "Random Player" dialog)

Ok here's an update...

Giving a No Chips/No Fees add-on to all players that bought in before a certain time seems to be doing the trick as I am now able to select a random player from that lot only which is great.

I also created an event to display that name on my screen but nothing happens...
Pressing "Go" on my Choose Random Player dialog does not trigger the event (any event)

Is there a property that has to be toggled somewhere else in the program that is preventing me from doing this?

TIA

Ok, I believe to have a couple of solutions/workarounds for this:

But I do not have access to my Tournament computer to test it, can someone tell me if either of these would work?

  • Since we do not use Add-On, I create a 0$/0 chips add-on that I give to all my players that bought-in before a certain time.
    Then I select a random player based on who got an add-on which triggers my custom "Display Daily Winner' action (displaying a message containing 'randomname').
  • I choose my Random player at the time I said my player should have bought in to avail themselves of the draw. Later I trigger my custom "Display Daily Winner' action (displaying a message containing 'randomname') that I set to be triggered by a HotKey. Would that display the last random player chosen?

TIA
Michel

Anyway to "freeze" the selection prior to the draw?

What I mean is if I could lock in my players selection (at a certain time) but do the drawing and display later?

TIA,
Michel

Hi Corey,

No I haven't moved on or figured it out... Final is next week.

I updated each player's stack in TD prior to saving my day 1's.

Hi,

I was wondering if it would be possible to choose a random player based on Registration Time.
I have a promotion where a player can get a free buy-in if he buys his entry no later that 15 minutes prior to the tournament starts.

Also, is there a way to display that name on the board upon having TD randomly select this player?

TIA,

Michel

Help Me / Incomplete tournaments
« on: May 27, 2015, 12:47:24 PM »
Hi all,

We have just started a new tournament:
Two day 1: 13 levels
Combine leftover stack of both day 1's for final on day 2.

My question is the following: Can I "easily" use TD to calculate the FINAL stacks for each player.

Right now I am attempting to use STATS but my tournament shows up as incomplete and do not get processed when I refresh my stats.

TIA

Michel
