Suggestions / Re: A few "simple" things, please
« on: November 01, 2006, 08:16:00 PM » describes the font size attribute (7 possible sizes).

I often use the relative font size attribute.

The default font size is "3", but since I am not sure what might be already set up in an html document I will just use:

<font size="+1"> text that I want a little bigger </font>

Other html tag info can be found at the home page of the site above:

Always handy to have the following special characters :):

Character Entity Description 
&spades; black spade suit 
&clubs; black club suit
&hearts; black heart suit
&diams; black diamond suit 

Suggestions / printable help file?

Is the documentation available in a format other than html?

Sometimes I like to print out a small section to read (say while getting ready for sleep - how sick is that) and it can be pretty hard to print out info from the help file.

Is a pdf of the help available?  Something where you could print out a couple pages at a time.

I guess somehow I could convert the whole documentation to a txt file or something and then print what I want but someone must have a better idea than this.

o.k., I think I am starting to get a feel for it.

2 questions:

1.  Why do you have to use the double == as an operator (evidently you don't always have to use it since the help file shows both a single = and a double == as appropriate operators)?

2.  Is it better to put rebuy, add-on, and hit points in the "points for playing" equation or put them in the appropriate box on the games tab?

My equation seems tos work with (n-r+2) + if(r == 3, 1, 0) + if(r == 1, 3, 0) + if(r == 2, 2, 0) - nr - na*0.5 + nh*0.5

I only allow 1 rebuy OR 1 add-on, and I want each player to finish the tourney with at least 1 point, so with this equation if a player rebuys, he will end up with 1 point (minimum, could be 2 or more with hits).

Does this equation look reasonable (it seems to work in the test mode), or is there a better way to do what I am doing?

You can make any color chip you want.

Just choose "new chip" in the chip tab. and for the color, choose "other" and then from the color palatte, choose whatever light bue color you wish.

Does this answer your question?

I took digital pictures of my chips (well, one picture of all my chips, so they were sized the same) and then put them into a chip set in TD.

I like the scheme set up by slick-ghost - thanks.  Something simple like that.

How could you modify this such that the top 3 places got a little extra bonus (say an extra 2 points for winning and and extra point for 2nd and 3rd).

You can do fractions of points?  I like that idea for a hit.  I guess by giving extra points for hits you automatically reward the top 3 people (likely), so maybe you don't need to set up extra points for 1,2,3 ranks.

In a rebuy, I assume you only get hit points when the person is entirely out of the tourney (not when they bust out the first time and then rebuy)?

Anyone have a good generic league points scheme to share.

About 15 people in the league - will only meet 5-6 times.  Only about 10-11 people will play any given session.

Just don't want to recreate the wheel.

Could you be more specific of what layout you want?

You can easily make a row include just the clock and put the clock above your logo - but what part of your layout does your logo reside in (the whole thing?)

Nice layout - I like the picture of the cards

One thing I did was change the text for the "next blinds" to "next blinds" instead of just "blinds"

Less confusing I think.

Help Me / Rounding of prizes and "leftovers"
« on: March 21, 2006, 11:51:42 AM »
Trying to figure out what to do with rounding of prizes and leftovers.

Theoretical prize stucture of 50%, 30%, 20%,

Lets say 10 players with $5 buy-in with $3 rebuy.  1 person rebuys. so pot is $53.

I can't really round the prizes without either have a $2 leftover or being short a buck.

Is the best way to handle this to have the prizes always rounded down and then "share the pot" for just one of the prizes (say 1st place) so any leftover goes to first place (or whatever place)?

It seems like you can't really share the leftover between multiple positions because then you may end up with non-rounded prizes (if you have $1 left over and that is shared between 2 prizes (say 1st and 2nd), then the prizes for those 2 positions ends up increasing by 50 cents even though rounding is in place).

well, there you go,

I didn't know that foreground was the font color - I just kind of ignored foreground and had assumed there wasn't anyway to change font other than through HTML code.

Should have figured there was a better way to do it (after making dozens of changes throughout my layout :o).

I bet if I read the help section this would be in there :-[

I don't think there is a way to change the font color globally.  But, it is relatively easy to do within any cell (and then just copy this info anyplace you want to use it).

You just need to use html code to change font color - so place any text you want between these tags:

<font color="#ffffff"> text you want for this color </font>

I use an image editing program (paint shop pro) to find out the number required for a particular color.  I am sure there are other ways to find the numbers required (#ffffff is white).

You can include tokens within these font tags and the token information will also show up in that font color.

Does this help?

How do you "marquee" the seating chart?  Does it scroll each table?  What is the token for that?

Could you present your html code to do what you are saying?  I like the scroll prizes function.  Could you present your html code for how you do that as well?

By "any large field" do you mean any large cell?

Thanks - good catch on using marquee.

Thanks Corey,

I didn't know about the screen resize thing (I totally agree that scroll bars would not be beneficial - it is just what I expected when elements went off the screen - it should be the way you set it up though).

Thanks HiThere,

It does seem to work to just click "O.K." instead of "apply".  My bottom row border doesn't show up when I tried to test it, but I think that is just because the row is "off the screen" because my layout is too big (that is a rather bizarre quirk in the program - if you set the fonts to be fairly large it seems to shift columns/rows partially off the screen and doesn't allow scrolling to see that you have done this - sometimes I have increased a font size and didn't notice that part of my text was off the screen).

Anyway,  thanks,

At least for Windows machines.  You can make your own sound files say whatever you would like - in your voice (I may have my wife redo mine - her voice is more soothing).

I have an "All players are now on break"
a "The blinds are going up"
a "rebuy period is now over" (which I would like to follow with Bruce Springsteen's song "10th avenue freezeout", but haven't done that yet).
