Help Me / Re: chips display
« on: March 08, 2006, 08:04:17 AM »
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).

So let me review my current settings:

I have 5 screen sets set up in this order:


For the pre-tourney I have it set up with the condition of "before the game".  Nothing else is altered from the default conditions setup (I tried clicking on rebuys allowed and add-ons allowed, but that didn't change any behavior - so it is currently set to "either").

For the post-tourney I have the conditions set to "after the game" - nothing else altered

For the after-rebuy screen set I have it set to "any stage" & the conditions set to "rebuys allowed = yes" , "rebuys over = yes", same for add ons

For the during-rebuy screen set I have it set to "any stage" & the conditions set to "rebuys allowed = yes" , "rebuys over = no".  Same for add-ons.

With this set up I get no pretourney screen (shows my "during-rebuy" screen set), no post tourney screen (shows my "during-rebuy" screen set except it says "game over" for the round time), and I think the middle tourney screens work o.k.

default screen never shows (just how I want it).

What am I missing.

I am getting more and more confused.

Actually,  the screen that shows up after the tourney (and before the tourney) is the "rebuy-period" screen set.

I have the rebuy-period screen set and the after-rebuy-period screen set with the "any stage" option checked.  If I use the condition of "during countdown" then my default screen shows up (I only have the seating chart currently in my default screen set).

I don't really have anything for my "default" screen set because I am trying to have specific screen sets that require conditions for all the screens and default screen set does not allow conditions.

I think that worked, but now with this same tourney I ran through a test tourney and 2 things are happening.

1.  The pre-tourney screenset is not showing up.  I have the conditions set up for this screen to show before the tourney (with either for the rebuy-addon option)

2.  When the tourney ended (last person eliminated), it did not go to my post-tourney screen set (which is set with condition to show when tourney is over (with either for the rebuy and add-on options).

Help Me / column properties
« on: February 27, 2006, 10:44:53 AM »
When I select a column and right click to get "column properties" it gives me the option to add a border around a column.  So I click that I want say a bottom border, define the color and width and click "apply".

The border properties don't seem to stick.  I do not get a border and if I right click on that column properties again it does not list my previous selections.

Any help here?

O.K., I am sure I am missing something in one of the settings boxes, but here is my problem.

I have screen sets (set up in this order) for:
Default (have to have this)
Rebuy period
After rebuy period
Post tourney

I have it set up so that the conditions are set for the rebuy period screen set:
-any stage
-rebuys allowed (yes)
-rebuys over (no)
-add ons allowed (yes)
-add ons over (no)

This one shows up fine.  Then after round 4 when I have it defined in the game that rebuys and add ons are no longer allowed I want it to move to the "after rebuy period" screen set.

So I have the "after rebuy period" screen set conditions set to:
-any stage
-rebuys allowed (no)
-rebuys over (yes)
-add ons allowed (no)
-add ons over (yes)

But, after round 4, it doesn't go to this screen set, but just goes to the default screen set.

Anyone see what I am missing here?

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Re: Garage Poker Tour Layout T1500 Event
« on: February 22, 2006, 08:52:42 AM »
I like the clock font.

Its kind of hard to evaluate though because if I just load the template it still includes all of my own descriptions/rules/etc.  Not sure how to replicate what you would see (including graphics, which of course were not included with just the layout template.  Any thoughts here?

Interesting that when I downloaded it, I didn't see that the default file type was a ".txt" file and so the save included a .txt at the end of the .tlo file name - so I couldn't find the file after I downloaded it.  All I needed to do was save it as an "all files type", but I have never had to do that before - this might just be the way I have my computer set up.

Sorry Corey, I swear I read the instructions, but somehow when I now look at them again your well written instructions must have bounced off my brain  ;D


Help Me / Moving players

How do you move players manually on a full table?  I know that you can drag and drop players if a table is not full (with a little rearranging - move #1 player into an empty seat, move #2 player into #1 seat, then move previous #1 player into the now empty #2 seat).  But, if a table is full, the only way I can figure out how to do it is to edit the table to add an extra seat temporarily (say from 10 seats to 11), do my re-arranging, then re-edit the table back to 10 seats.

Any other ways?

It would be nice if I could say right click on a player and say that I want him in seat 2, then this might shift everbody up a seat and if need be I could then right click on person that was in 2 and shift him to 10 - just saves editing a table twice.

Oh, I guess you were asking about software program,

Like someone said, you could just set the background color of your chip to the background color used in your layout.  That you could probably do with the basic windows paint program.

I use Paint Shop Pro.  This is  a full featured graphics program, but much cheaper than the more versatile Adobe graphics program.

Most any image editing program should fit the bill to create the background as being transparent (best solution, because then you can use any layout background color or different color for even and odd rounds and the chip will still show up without a square border).

You need to use an image editing program and set your background (portion outside of the chip border) to be transparent.

I just tried this as a .gif file and it worked. 

I can't remember if .jpg supports transparency but I think it does - for some reason I can't get it to work in .jpg format right now, but I am working with a new graphics program and just haven't figured out the transparency setting for .jpg files.

Thank you, I thought my head might have been to thick to see the easy answer :D
