Help Me / Re: How do I Extract Best 15 Performances?
« on: July 10, 2006, 01:23:14 PM »
I think you're going to have to do this manually at the moment.  I'll keep this in mind when I get to updating the stats page to allow your own formulas for computing score.

Help Me / Re: History Results
« on: July 10, 2006, 01:19:31 PM »
The action summary (different from the History) can be exported on the Summary tab.  The action summary can also be "exported" simply by highlighting all of the text, copying and pasting it into some other application (Word, notepad).  You can do the same with the tournament history.  I'll add <actionsummary> and <history> tokens to the Tournament export (from the Game Tab).

Help Me / Re: Show Highest Chip Counts First?
« on: July 10, 2006, 01:13:32 PM »
You're blind.  :-)

If you customized which fields are displayed on the Player Rankings screen, then you pressed the "Edit Columns" button.  Just above that button is a radio selection:

. Sort by rank, name, chip count
. Sort by rank, chip count, name

Help Me / Re: scrolling a list
« on: July 10, 2006, 01:11:24 PM »
I believe someone said they were able to do this using the HTML <marquee> tag.  Although I would guess it might be a little bit jumpy, it would still have the desired effect.

Help Me / Re: Auto resize Player Rankings
« on: July 10, 2006, 01:10:34 PM »
There isn't one for two reasons.  (1) The complexity of the screen is significantly less, making it much easier for the user to resize the items on the screen to their desired size;  (2) The player list, no matter how small you make the font, can be (and probably is quite often) larger than can fit on the screen anyway.   Notice that the player "section" of the screen automatically resizes to make everything fit as well as possible anyway.

On the player screen, it lists all the players and their chip count.  Between rounds we figure out who has the highest two chipstacks at each table.  We update those players with the chip count.  Is there any way to sort that list according to chip count?  It would be cool to have the chip leaders at the top!

Right-click and select Player Rankings Properties.  Then select Sort by rank, chip count, name.

OK, I see.  The export does actually use the current sort column, so you can accomplish what you are describing.  But you're looking for a more "automated" way to get those stats... and for 560 tournaments, I think I understand why.

Help Me / Re: Prize Pool Token?
« on: July 03, 2006, 11:20:54 AM »
The pot IS the total money taken in less the rake.  So, if your buy-in is $100 (to make this easy), make your Per-player rake $5.  With 100 players, you'll have a pot of $9500 ($10000 minus $5 x 100)

Help Me / Re: Hits not recorded
« on: July 03, 2006, 11:17:53 AM »
It is related to rebuys.  Specifically, it is related to rebuying a player who has not busted out.  When the software was updated to allow players to rebuy before being busted out, a bug was introduced that caused the hits to be tallied incorrectly (and some other details as well).  In other words, the tournament is intact, but the totals displayed aren't necessarily correct.  I've already fixed this and I'm working hard to get the next version finished.  When it is available and you've upgraded to the new version, your stats will display correctly (you won't need to do anything to your saved tournaments).

Seems to me you're raking the pot.  So why not put the 5% in the "Fixed rake" field?  You'll have to calculate the 5% total yourself...  Or, simply rake 5% of the buy-in.  I'm sure you know what the buy-in cost will be, so simply make the per-player rake 5% of that (and for rebuys and add-ons, if your tournament has them).  That way, the <pot> token will reflect what is actually in the prize pool.

1) You can customize the page all you want.  The software uses a template with <tags> in it.  Those <tags> are replaced with data from the tournament.  The Stats export uses the template file templates\StatsExport.html.  I recommend you copy this file and give it a name of your own.  Then on the Preferences tab, press the Config Files button and tell the software to use your file for the Stats export.  Customize that file all you want and export your stats...

2) The behavior is meant to mimic typical Windows sorting.  For example, in Windows Explorer.  Sorry for the extra click, but this type of behavior I'd rather leave the way it is.

3) Not sure what you are describing.  Can you be more specific?

4) I suppose this is a possibility.  I'll put it on the to-do list.

5) Easy to do.  I'll put it on the list, too.

6) This might be going a little further than I think the software should go.  This is actually a rather complicated addition, and I'm afraid that while you personally might greatly benefit from it, it probably doesn't have much value to many other users.  And I'd rather spend time working on features that have a bigger bang for their buck.

7) This is actually in the works, although I'm not positive it will ever see the light of day.  Most of the work I've been doing since the last release has been on infrastructure that will support this mode.  But due to the way IE and HTA applications work, it simply might not be possible, but I'm working on it.

8) Yep, done.

9) Thanks!

Help Me / Re: duplicate players
« on: June 28, 2006, 03:53:42 PM »
When you add a player to your tournament, it checks the new player's nickname against the nicknames of (a) players already in your tournament and (b) players in your database; and it checks the player's firstname + lastname combination against the firstname + lastname combination of (a) players already in your tournament and (b) players in your database.  The software will warn you if you are entering a duplicate nickname or a duplicate firstname + lastname combination.  There is probably more that could be done, given that duplicates are now allowed and people tend to use the nickname, first name, and last name fields differently.  I'm open to suggestions.

You are correct in that when adding new players to your database, the "league" selection is ignored.  I had to go back and check this one.  I make updates to the software nearly every day and even I forget what's been done.  On May 29, I fixed this bug: "Fixed previous bug that didn't set the selected league when adding a new DB player".  So this fix will show up in the next release.

Help Me / Re: Stats problem
« on: June 27, 2006, 04:54:45 PM »
Points can be allocated as part of a prize or through a number of other means, such as for buying-in, for rebuying, for busting other players out, etc.  So, points listed on the Players tab are points that a player has earned in the tournament.  Points listed on the Prizes tab are points specifically awarded as part of a prize.

As for Stats, if you see NO players listed on the Stats tab:
- Make sure you've refreshed the tournaments (Refresh Tourneys button)
- Make sure the players you expect to see are in your player database (only database players show up)
- Make sure the tournaments you expect to get stats from are done (the tournament has ended)

Press the Info button to see what tournaments are being loaded and which ones are not, and which of the tournaments that are loaded are passing the filter and which aren't.  Loosen up the filter if necessary by changing the various filter attributes to "<any>" and leaving the Date fields empty.  This should catch all of the tournaments.

There is addressed in the FAQ: http://www.thetournamentdirector.net/faq.html#faq18

Basically, it's a painful situation, no doubt about it.  I'd like to address it in the software, and I'm pretty sure I can, but it isn't terribly high on the priority list (hasn't happened too much).  The fix would be to allow you to "merge" DB players, but basically it boils down to "now you have two players who are the same player", and the software would have to keep track of that.  Do it again and you now have 3 players who are really the same player.  And so on.  Could slow the software down, and I'm trying to avoid that.

I'm not certain what was meant by "at some point the software stopped checking for names...", because the software does check for duplicate names.  At 2.1, the software stopped DISallowing duplicate names, but it will still warn you if you add a player with the same nickname or the same first + last name combination.

So, if you have two players A and B in your database who are actually the same player, you have to change player B to player A in all of the tournaments in which you have player B instead of player A.  Or vice-versa.

Delete player B in the database.  Load each saved tournament.  Player B should now show up as "not in your database".  Edit the player and use the Merge function to merge the player with database player A.  Save the tournament.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

Set up a rake specifically for that.  On the Preferences tab you can define as many rakes as you want.  The Stats tab will tally up each rake individually, for fixed and per-player rakes.
