Another article I found that might help users in this situation:

http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/Internet-Explorer-corrupted-fix.html

The directions show how to re-register (all of?) Internet Explorer's needed DLLs, and then use the system file checker to help repair anything left.

Suggestions / Re: non-integer chip values
« on: April 18, 2006, 02:27:49 PM »
2.1 is actually almost complete.  Here are some highlights:

- Nickname no longer required field (you must enter either a Nickname or a First name)
- Import players from CSV directly into a tournament (if you wish to bypass using the TD's database)
- Rounds tab has a spreadsheet-like view now (optional).  All of the values for each round and break can be edited directly on the page
- Option to allow players to rebuy before they've busted out
- Formulas have been overhauled.  Added more variables, and longer (more intuitive) variable names.  Added functions "if()", "log10()", and "power()"
- Ability to configure your own prize suggestions
- Automatic prizes feature
- 16 bugs fixed
- And more...

Implementing the new sound events and the fixing of one sound bug remains.  And then the user manual has to be updated.  I hope to finish it this week.

There seems to be an issue when you try to do the Set Per-Player option for non-integer valued chips, they 0 out any chip that is less than a dollar (i.e. $.25, $.50), so when I try to set the chip stacks correctly it has incorrect total values.

Sure is.  Fixed for 2.1.

Help Me / Re: Can you run TD2.0 from a usb flash drive?
« on: April 17, 2006, 12:37:18 PM »
I don't see why not.  You should be able to run the TD from any drive connected to your system.  When it starts, it uses the location from where it is run (as opposed to using a location it recorded when it was installed).  So, theoretically, after installing the software, you could use Windows Explorer to move the install folder somewhere else, and it should work.  Although the installed shortcuts (on the desktop and the start menu) won't work.  And the uninstall option in the control panel probably won't work properly either.

Help Me / Re: Manually adding tournaments already played
« on: April 17, 2006, 12:34:16 PM »
The TD doesn't allow you to manually adjust times that events occur in your tournament.  What I've found is that the times that events occur is almost always irrelevant, it's really only order that matters, with the big exception of busting players out.  Noting bust out times can greatly help you adjust your schedule to fit your tournaments more closely.  And some people like to track how long players last (time-wise, not just rounds-wise or order-wise).  So, the only thing I can suggest is to adjust your system clock as you perform the various operations?

However, I would strongly suggest you NOT adjust your system clock if you are still in the evaluation period (and do not have a license key), as you will likely cause the evaluation period to immediately end.

Help Me / Re: Sluggish performance
« on: April 17, 2006, 10:13:32 AM »
I think your computer is probably fine.  Might be a *little* sluggish feeling, with a 1GHz Celeron, but it shouldn't be so slow that the clock doesn't update properly.

640MB seems like plenty of memory, too.  My development PC only has 512.  However, what we've seen with a few users is that memory can really be key.  *Having* 640MB in your PC makes no difference if there's little *free* memory.

Bring up the Task Manager and see how much memory is available.  Press Ctrl+Alt+Del, or right-click on the taskbar and select Task Manager, to open the Windows Task Manager.  Select the Performance tab.  On the bottom of the dialog, see what these amounts are (when the TD is running):

Available, under "Physical Memory (K)"
Total, under "Commit Charge (K)"

You can copy/paste these amounts, although you might need to pause the display to do so, since it will keep updating.  To pause it, on the View tab, select Update Speed -> Paused.

Help Me / Re: Additional optional Buy-In amount, how to record?
« on: April 17, 2006, 10:01:17 AM »
On the Preferences tab, add an additional rake.  Call it "Year-end" or whatever you want.

On the Game tab, set the per-player rake to be whatever you normally rake (if anything), then set the "Year-end" rake to 0.  Set your buy-in to $5.  Then, for any player that is participating in the year-end tournament, increase their buy-in to $5.50 and set their "Year-end" rake to $.50 when you buy that player in.  You'll have to keep your own list of players who are participating.

This will keep the additional .50 from the tournament pot.  When you run Stats, the TD will sum the "Year-end" rake for you, so you'll know at any time exactly how much has been collected for it.

If you don't normally rake anything at all, you don't need to necessarily create an additional rake.  Just use the per-player rake to collect your "Year-end" tournament money.

The final option is to not use the TD to track the "Year-end" tournament money at all.  You can always just collect your normal buy-in fee, don't rake anything, but collect the additional $.50 from each player yourself, and keep track of it yourself.

Suggestions / Re: Creation of a DVD
« on: April 17, 2006, 09:51:26 AM »
The TD has grown into the program it is today for a reason: users want the flexibility and configurability of the software.  Not that I want to send business anywhere else, but if this is the type of thing you are looking for, there are poker tournament DVDs available today.  They offer very limited configuration of tournament parameters.  But you can use it with only a DVD player.

Create chips and chipsets and save the chip templates individually.  Then, for any tournament you run, you can just load the chip template for the chips you are using.  Does the template solution not work for you for some reason?

« on: April 13, 2006, 09:53:05 AM »
Hey Corey,

I thought of that, but then how do I compare the teams' performances directly against each other in e viewer-friendly way? Can I post different leagues' stats against each other? Canīt see how.

Run the stats for the first team [league], export them; repeat for the second team?

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Re: No sound
« on: April 11, 2006, 03:06:51 PM »
Hi,

I had initially setup my software on my desktop, and saved all my customization.

I then installed the software onto my laptop. Copied all directories in Tournament Director directory into the same place as the notebook....

Tournament works fine... BUT... I get NO SOUND. Oddly I can create new sound and [play] and hear sound... but if i try to play sound under the event = no sound, have run the tournament and = no sound.

any ideas?

It's a bug which only affects a few users.  You *might* be able to work around it by updating Windows Media Player, as it is possible the bug is version specific.  Or you can wait until the TD 2.1, in which I have fixed it.

Help Me / Re: Points not awarded correctly, despite test results.
« on: April 10, 2006, 09:57:23 AM »
Do you have the "Points for hit:" field (on the Game tab) set to "1"?  Because if you do, then you are awarding 1 point for each hit, PLUS you awarding one point for each hit in your formula.  Hence, you are awarding 2 points for each hit.  This would account for the additional 7 points.

Couldn't you just create leagues for the teams?  Players can be part of any number of leagues.  And if the point of separating them into teams is to have the TD sum up points per team, putting players into a "team league" would allow you to filter based on "team" (and total up team points).

Suggestions / Re: Bug report - table counts in main layout
« on: April 09, 2006, 08:08:23 PM »
I hosted my first tourney on the new software yesterday.  29 players across 4 tables of 8 seats.  I don't think the tables on the screen were ever correct.  At one point, it said 10x1, 9x2.  At another it said 10x1, 8x1.

As we had no other problems, and the seat changes were handled appropriately, I'm not sure why this was messed up.

This is probably correct.  The <tables> token displays optimal seating layout, not actual seating.  This was done to keep it compatible with version 1.3, to keep to a minimum what would need to be changed for a saved 1.3.x layout to work in 2.0.  In retrospect, this was a poor choice on my part, but it's too late now.  The <currenttables> token displays actual seating.

If you don't set the seatsPerTable attribute of the <tables> token, it assumes 10.  So, even though you actually had 29 players seated at 4 tables of 8 seats, the <tables> token was assuming tables of 10 seats.  With 28 players, that's 10x1, 9x2.  [Although 10x1, 8x1 isn't right, if that's indeed what it displayed; it should have been 9x2.]
