Help Me / Re: The prize pool is under-allocated

I saw your post also, and thought that we were pretty much on the same page with our question.  It would be a cool feature, for sure.

Don't know if this is asked for enough to warrant a "to-do list" item, but I think it'd be cool!

Anyways - this is STILL the coolest software!

Help Me / Re: points formula help needed..please
« on: October 11, 2006, 01:54:50 PM »
I've been using the formula


This awards more points for top-ranked finishers that had to go against a larger field, i.e. -

16 players: 40, 28, 23, 20 (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th)
12 players: 35, 24, 20, 17
  8 players: 28, 20, 16, 14

This also has the tendency to shore up the bottom players points more, and keep folks "in the hunt" for the long-haul when they have an off-night, with last place in all above scenarios being awarded 10 points minimum.

The last part of the formula "+nh+(3*nb)+(5*nbk)-nr" awards additional points for being a HitMan and collecting Bounties, and awards negative points for Rebuys.

I ran a TEST redoing this years cumulative results (9 events) by plugging in Corey's formula posted, plus adding the tail-end of this formula above -- and the results were fairly close in comparison of one to the other, with the re-run results pulling the field of competition together a bit tighter.

Thanks Corey!  I'm starting to get the hang of this, and spending time goin' thru this forum is also a BIG help.  What a GREAT program.  My poker buddies love it!  And as I'm gettin' into it -- I'm just more and more amazed at how versatile and usable this software is! TY - TY - TY!  I couldn't be runnin' my tournaments the same without it.

One more Q [at least ;) ] -- I want to create a "fund" next season for an Invitational; to invite the top 8 players during the year to a tourney that is already funded (no buy-in) as their reward, and also as an additional competition.  But to do so, I'm goin' to have to begin a rake towards that.  Is there a way to also use the "leftover" to be tossed into this "fund"?  I tried to create a "5th Prize" which would be the fund, but my options are percentage, fixed rate, etc.  I would just like to sweep any leftover in on top of the rake for the fund.

I'm on the "Prizes" tab, but I don't see a "Share Leftover" button.  Am I looking in the wrong place?  I believe I saw that before, but can't seem to find it now.

Getting the "Problem": The prize pool is under-allocated (not all prize pool money is allocated for prizes).

How do I correct this?  i DO have a buck or too that's not being given out, due to rounding of the prizes, but do I have to allocate i.e. $2.50 to "something" or else get this "Problem" message?

Help Me / Previewing my Layout
« on: October 08, 2006, 08:12:32 PM »
Working on my first Layout... I have a 1) Main Screen (was the default) and 2) creating a PreGame screen.  Q: How do I PREVIEW the screen that I'm creating???  I click on "Tournament" - but it then displays the "Main Screen" - and I can't see what I've done.

Newbie here... I also liked the Rankings, etc. -- but how (specifically) do I insert them to get them displayed; where do I put this code?  Thanks!

Basic Q: How do I insert tokens onto my layout screen?

Would love to know how you created the square buttons across the bottom!  Would they be used as shortcuts for my typical functions - like Busted Out Player and Rebuy, etc.  This is new to me!  But looks like a GREAT idea!

General Discussion / Deleting multiples of same player in database...
« on: March 21, 2006, 08:29:56 AM »
Have just upgraded, but now have accidentally added a few players multiple times, creating duplicates of some players.  The "merge" thing just isn't working for me, so how can I simply delete the duplicate player along with their information, and just forget about merging.

I have not used the upgraded version for a tourney yet, so no critical data will be lost.  But I DO have a tourney this Friday!  Help!
