Help Me / can't get TD to set random dealer button
« on: November 26, 2017, 10:04:40 PM »
Not sure what I am doing wrong or what preference I might have set somewhere, but I can't get TD to set the dealer button randomly.

I know it used to work for me in V2.x

I am not testing a tourney with 2 tables and first it would only set a dealer button on table 1, then I manually set a dealer button on table 2 and then tried to randomly set dealer button but they wont' move.

any thoughts on likely user error/?

Help Me / Re: Black screens and application slow down

I am getting the black screen with IE 11 on Windows 8.1 FWIW,

Seems like it happens when I open and close the control window often (going back and forth with layout changes). 

Is it hard to go back to IE 10?  Any way  to force TD to use Chrome browser (and would that help or hinder?)

Well, that makes too much sense.  Get microsoft to do that for us sometime! :)

OK, so just installed version 3.4 after a few years away from the software.

I didn't have my version 2 on my new laptop, but I did copy the folder "The Tournament Director 2" that has a "Data" folder that includes the following folders "db, images, receipts, saves, sounds, templates".

And it appears that TD3 has installed preferences from this folder (such as older config files).

But, trying to some degree to start from a clean slate and the only file folders for TD3 are under program files (x86) that has a bunch of folder (bin, examples, lang, lib, receipts, saves, screenshots, sounds, templates).

How do I make sure I am optimizing TD3 by having it use possibly newer templates and other database files that came with the new version (though I wouldn't mind using some of my old player databases, etc).  Just don't want older version templates and stuff gumming up the new features of the new version.

confused that it even found my "the Tournament Director" folder as I had it in my document folder.

thanks Corey,  Never would have figured that out, and I thought I was pretty handy with TD layout  ???

Works perfectly

its not a big deal,  I don't mind using a laptop to control tourney (almost prefer since my near vision stinks, so I need a big screen for controls).
thanks anyway,

Here is the screen I am talking about (attached).

I am pretty sure it has to do with the pixel size of the image in the top cell and something I need to alter there.

I made the image 1024 x 122 and my screen size is 1024 x 768.  Hoping that the top image would fit the width of the screen and that it would sit at the top of the screen and the rest of the layout would come up to it, but the background (black) is creating a border on the top and bottom of the image.

oops, I see now it is an ipod touch, not an HTC touch.

You use an HTC Touch smartphone to control a computer running TD is that correct?  Can you elaborate?  I will search the board.

Its been a while since I have posted on the forum.  I am using the most recent version of TD (not the 2.6 beta)

Doing a new layout and having an issue with it - although minimally different from my standard layout that I made up.

In my standard layout I just have 2 columns of cells in one row.  The new layout I simply added a row with a single cell (an image) above the other 2 columns.

So the image is 1024 x 122.

There is black space (background color) on top of and on bottom of this image filling the entire row.  It is symetrical, about 10 pixels in height.

I have no padding in either this row or the row below (nor for any column or any cells).  I also have no borders for any cells.

for the top cell (row), I am not specifying any height or width of the image (left at zero's).  Since my monitors are set at resolution of 1024 x 768 I figured I would just let the software auto-fill the image into that cell space.

Any thoughts as to where this black border on top and bottom of image is (none on sides).

Use a bounty chip.  Look in the help section under the General tab (section 8 I think) and it explains how to use a bounty chip.

In your case you would make the cost of a bounty chip 50 cents (and probably have to lower the "buy-in" by 50 cents, unless you make the bounty an added cost)

what if you start out with 9 people?  is everyone final table and still 4 places given?

yes, TD can do both things, but it different areas.  You will use game tab for specific tourney and stats tab (overall score) for throwing out the bottom scores and calculating league score.

it helps to know how you determine how many people are in the money for a given tourney.
