Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Re: league points scheme
« on: October 24, 2006, 01:12:48 PM »
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).

I think this is stated in the help section, but under the properties tab (edit chip properties) look in the "HTML" section and you will see "chip size = X".

Just make the "X" value bigger and voila, chips are bigger.

Kind of a goofy set up, but it is a couples tourney and I don't want somebody to have to go home after 15 minutes (and/or have to wait for their significant other to bust out).  It is T2000 buy-in.  We allow 1 rebuy (if busted) OR 1 add-on (if <T1000 chips).  Rebuy or add-on has to occur by finish of 4th round.

So, we have one rebuy - but it is a reduced rebuy for a reduced amount of chips -  T1500 for rebuy for 75% of the buy in cost.  This kinda-helps people being reckless because they won't be back to full stack.

Then, if you haven't busted out and have <T1000 you can add-on (if you didn't do a rebuy), but the add-on is only T1000 and is for 50% of buy-in price.  In effect, I try to allow all people to have near buy-in stack towards the end of 4th round. 

Doesn't always work well, sometimes people end up with a bit over T1000 near end of 4th round and get kind of reckless trying to either win a pot or fall less than T1000.

I am kind of preferring not to allow anyone to add-on who hasn't done a rebuy, because then everybody would and it would just prolong the tourney. 

It is kind of a friendly game, so I am trying to keep people in for about 1.5 hours, then finish up by about 2.5 - 3 hours so that spouses can go home together.

Still trying to refine this.

Well, that solved it for me anyway by using your notion of "highest number of matching conditions".

What I did was use the default screen for my "rebuy period" screen set.

Pretourney screen I just add the condition of "before game" and buy-ins and add-ons allowed = yes.

Then, for "post tourney" I set a bunch of conditions - that it was buy-in allowed, but buy-ins = over, add-ons allowed, but add-ons = over (I kind of can assume that the tourney won't end before the end of buy-ins), and made the tourney type "no limit", and made players remaining = <3 (because of course there will be less than 3 at the end of the tourney).

For my "no-rebuys" screen set, I just set the condition to any stage and rebuys and add-ons are allowed, but are "over"

Then everything works as it should.  Pre-tourney screens show up before the tourney starts, the default displays during rebuy, the "no rebuys" screen sets show up after my round 4 when it should, and then when I bust out the last player my "post tourney" screen sets show up.

Thanks Corey.  Not really a bug, just needed to make the conditions work for the software parameters.

screen set issues with this tourney/layout.

Thanks Corey - I am sure I am just missing a setting somewhere.  I can get it to show the pre and post screens if for the rebuy and after rebuy screen sets I set the condition to "in countdown", but then during the countdown it goes to my default screen (I just put the seating chart for my default so I would no when it shows up - I don't mean to show this).
