Help Me / Re: Custom XML Export
« on: October 17, 2013, 04:30:26 PM »
No, there's no way to make your own custom XML export.

You could certainly modify an "HTML" template to export as XML.  The file's contents are really irrelevant -- the TD doesn't care, it just replaces tokens.  But you're limited to the tokens that the export supports.
I'm sure you have the tokens.  Just don't know how I would set it up to render the proper information.
What is it you're trying to achieve?  Is there something the CSV export doesn't cover that you need?
I'm also going to try using the csv file but I need to import data to two different tables.
If I can find a way to do that via csv, I will use it.

Is there ANY WAY to create a custom XML export?

Could I edit the Tournament Export.html template and change it to .xml and put in some tokens or something?

« on: October 12, 2013, 12:51:52 PM »
Corry, is there a way to find out which of my players haven't been to one of my games in a while? 

For example, I'd like to be able to create a report of all the players that have registered in my games over the last 12 months.

If I can't do it in the program, is there a way to export the data and use a spreadsheet or db to create it?

I bow to your formula knowledge. 

I have NO IDEA HOW you do it.  I guess, as the creator of the application you'd have to know how to make these formulas work. 

It worked! I guess I just don't have the logic to think this way.

Thank you - Again...

Okay, I figured out how to do it.

Although, I didn't figure out how to award it to players ONLY when there are >30 players...At least automatically.

I created Prizes in addition to my Points for Playing formula.

On the prizes page, I just made up a 30point prize for 1 - 16 which I will have to load when there are 30 plus players.

Simple but effective.

No, that doesn't work.  It' says, "formula has an error"

You might be able to do this with SkyDrive.

Save your Tournament Director files to Skydrive.

Create your event file, save to skydrive. Open the SAME FILE on both computers.

I don't know if this will work though since there is no way that I know of to refresh the open file.

This is the formula that you helped me with a while back.  It assigns points based on the number of players in the game and when they make it into the top 30% of the field.

Code: [Select]
round(if(r - (n * 0.3) < 0.51, 20 * (sqrt(sqrt(n) * n / r)) + 20, 20))
I was thinking of adding an extra bonus for top 16 players. Was thinking a 30point bonus for making it to the final two tables.  Here is the kicker though;  if the attendance is less than 30 players, there is no bonus for the top 16.

Is this something I could even add to this formula or did I just make this too complicated?

I'm sure there's *something* out there that will make mapping XML to SQL easy (or easier), but it would all depend on how your tables are designed and what you intended to do with it.  That's one small part of a much larger task.  Do you have the larger task nailed down?
That depends on what you mean by "the larger task"?  The database?  I have the tables and fields and can make or remove as needed. I can't believe how hard of a time I'm having with this.  I used to be so good with coding. LOL.

So you don't have any system that you use or recommend?

BTW - LOVE the newest version of TD..Great improvements.

Hey Corry,

I've run out of places to ask this so, I figure I'll see if you know.

Is there a way for me to import my exported XML file into my MySql database? Could you point me in the direction to map the imports?

I want to use the StatsGenie export on my own site but can't find any methods anywhere to mapping the xml to mysql tables. 

Just like on their site, I want to have my authorized users Upload the xml and have a script that puts everything where it needs to go.

Any direction you could point me in would be great!


Help Me / Re: How to use barcode scanner to register players
« on: May 04, 2013, 11:20:25 PM »
I'm actually QUITE surprised that this hasn't been answered yet.  I saw someone (a while back) that posted a video of themselves using a barcode scanner and a receipt printer with and never told us how they did it.

It would be so professional and quick if one could just give their players barcode ID card and, blam - You're registered and seated.

I know there are users that do this, could someone outline the steps to using a barcode scanner to sign in players? I have a large event and I want to speed up the registration process.

Corey, anyway to export to an access table or excel? I guess to CSV would be fine but I need some fields and not others?
