Your layout looks nice. ;D

Is there a trick to getting the chip images to appear larger?  My images are 400x400 pixels and are still showing as tiny.

I do not see a size setting when adding the chip images, but I would like to make them a bit larger.


The <chips> token has a size attribute, which indicates pixel height/width:

<chips size="100">

This would display your chips as 100x100 pixel images.  The default size is 30, so you'll get 30x30 pixel chip images if you omit the size attribute.

If you ever want to know what the various attributes for any token are (or what the tokens are), just edit a cell and press the Insert Token button.  There you'll find all of the tokens, each of their attributes, and descriptions for everything.

Technically, a league is a simple way to group players in your database.  It makes it easy when you create your tournament to filter out the players you want to add to the tournament.

A season is really nothing but a "tag".  It is simply a designator.  It is useful for more easily creating a filter that will show stats for the specific sub-set of your tournaments.

Do you need to create a league for your players?  If you host tournaments with more than one "set" of players, it might be useful to group your players into different leagues.  It sure makes it easy each time you setup your tournament, you set the League (on the Game tab), and then on the Players tab you press "Add Players" and you'll only see players that are part of the league.  Click the "check all" link and then press OK and everyone in the league is now added to your tournament.  Very easy.

Do you need to create one or more seasons?  If you ever intend to "reset" your stats, then a season makes it easy.  "Reset" is probably not the best word to use, but you need to understand how the statistics are generated in order to make the right choices for leagues and seasons.

When you want the TD to generate statistics, it loads all of the saved tournaments it can find, and then tallies up the stats for the players in those tournaments.  The stats generated are relative only to: (1) the players who played in those specific tournaments, and (2) *those specific tournaments*.  This is key.  If you have played 20 tournaments, and your filter only accepts 5 of those 20 tournaments, stats generated for each player will be relative only to those 5 tournaments.  This is why seasons can be good.  If you want to see stats for January through June, for example, and then "start over", or "reset" the stats so that everyone in your group of poker players (league) can get fresh start, then it would be a good idea to create two seasons, "1st half 06" and "2nd half 06".  You could then create two filters, one that loaded only tournaments in the "1st half 06" season, and another that loaded only tournaments in the "2nd half 06" season.  With a stats filter, you're telling the TD: "Compute statistics only for the tournaments that fit these criteria."

You can, at any time, load a saved tournament, make changes to it, then re-save the tournament.  If, for example, you've run 3 tournaments and then decide that seasons would be a good thing, you can create your season in the database, then, in turn, load each of the 3 already saved tournaments, set their season, and re-save them.  The next time you "Reload Tourneys" on the Stats tab, the TD will recognize your changes.

That's fairly rambling, but I hope it helps.

Yes.  Each player in your database has an internal, unique identifier.  Changing their nickname, first name, and/or last name will have no effect on stats, other than the player's name will be different.

I just did the multiple sound to an event and it worked fantastic.  I would assume that this will work for everything then? 

Also, is there anyway to change a persons nickname ( I use it as their first name) , as I spelled it wrong, and it will still assign stats from previous tournaments to the edited player?  I guess what I am asking is if you edit a player, will the program recognize that and still have the correct stats from saved games?

That's what the Stats are for.  It will show you points, etc, accumulations over a set of tournaments.

The score is calculated as follows:

Logarithm method: score = log((number-of-players+1)/rank)
Percentile method: score = (1 - (rank / (number-of-players+1))) * 100

The score is calculated for each tournament in which a player participates and then averaged.  Actually, I think the logarithm method is flawed, since it uses the "log" function, which is assumed to be log base 10, but is actually log base e.

In the works is the ability to create your own scoring formulas.  It won't make it into 2.1, but it will definitely be in the following version.

Bounced again.

The email delivering your license key bounced, twice.  As you might guess, it's a little difficult to communicate with customers when email is unsuccessful.

I have replied to your email and have not gotten a bounce back yet, so maybe it has gone through this time.  If by the time you read this you have not received an email from me, send me a private message in this forum and we can communicate that way.

Can't recall if this was asked before, but can you assign more than one sound to an event?  I was wondering if it was possible to randomize the sounds for when people bust out, meaning have it play a different sound each time.

That is exactly what will happen if you create more than one sound event for the same event.

Can't attach an excel file to the forum. Converting it to .html, doh, can't attach that either. Here's where I found one=>
Type tournament bracket in yahoo search engine and go to microsoft templates and search brackets. They have a few different kinds including the NCAA Tournament Bracket.

Hope that helps.

Added Excel and HTML files to allowed attachments.

thanks moose..  now just have to wait for the next release with the ability to play this for when the first person is knock out.

Or you can assign it to a hotkey and play it manually.  Lame maybe, but effective.

The Tournament Director doesn't consider this a bounty that you "won", it's actually categorized as a bounty you "kept".  It is not included in your bounty winnings, but it IS included in your total winnings.

I suspect this is an issue you might want to raise on the Stats Genie site - see if this amount should be included in the "Knockout revenue" field for a player.  I could easily make this change, but that would affect everyone who uses this feature.

In the meantime, you can adjust this yourself by editing the exported file.  It's in XML format.  Just look for the player and edit the KnockoutRevenue attribute:

  <Player Name="Andrew D" FirstName="" LastName="" Rank="1" TournamentPts="5" Buyin="50" Rebuy="0" Addon="0" Payout="250" Knockouts="1" KnockoutRevenue="5" BountyCost="5" RoundOut="" TimeOut=""/>

Change KnockoutRevenue="5" to KnockoutRevenue="10", for example.

Also remember to set the max in the prizes peoperties to as high as your total number of prizes.

Or set max="0", which means "as many prizes as you have".

OK, I get it now.  And I can reproduce it.  Simple bug, can't believe it got by, I will fix it for the next release.

I think I'm going to try to add an "Advanced..." buttons on the Conditions dialog that would allow you to enter the conditions formulaically.  It would be easier for those more mathematically inclined, and be more powerful.

I'm not sure what you mean about making the change take effect.  Unless this is a side-effect of the bug, the screen should always "refresh" automatically.

Go to the Layout tab, double-click any cell.  On the Cell dialog, press the Insert Token button.  This dialog helps you to assemble a token with its necessary attributes, and insert it into a cell.  The dialog lists all of the tokens that can be inserted into a layout.  Scroll down and select the <tdbutton> token.  The right hand side of the dialog will display the options available for the <tdbutton> token, including "type", which will be a list of all of the available button types.
