Hello. There is a workaround to what you wold like to do. I have doe this for many years.

Install a remote access program on your computer and one on your cell. You can connect to your computer from your phone/tablet as though you were in front of it.

TightVNC is my VNC of choice (Teamviewer is also very popular)

Can you build in a dialog that pops up if a user tries to buy-in more than 1 player at a time? One of my guys here accidentally selected all the players in the DB and added to the tourney and he kinda got a shock when the thermal printer spit out 200 receipts!
It was good for aq laugh but took a bit of work to remove the extra names.

Okay I've figured out the printing issue.
Asegzamfire had it right with his solution, however, with Windows 10 there is an added step. For anyone else having this issue, open Settings and then click Devices. Under the Printers & Scanners menu turn off the option "Let Windows manage my default printer" All is good with printing.

There only remains the keystroke issue now

Help Me / Thermal Printer issue
« on: October 05, 2016, 10:15:47 PM »
Hi Corey and everyone.
I have 3 printers hooked to my computer, which includes a thermal receipt printer. If my thermal printer is not the last printer used it spits out an empty receipt that is only half an inch. A former co-worker posted about his (link provided) but even following his suggestion it does not correct the problem. We can click the Transactions button from the Players Tab and print a new receipt and all is fine. But it is an annoyance.
Also, I saw one thread earlier about keystrokes not registering with W10. Is there any news on a fix for this?

Once you re-arrange tha tabs you can then edit pref.sav. In that file (open with notepad) you can locate the tabs and remove them. Save  then open TD

Help Me / Remove Tabs

Hi Corey. Many years ago I was able to remove some of the Tabs from the settings window that I didn't need or because I wanted to prevent my staff from making unwanted changes. But, today, I can't remember how I got that.
I recall having to first arrange the tabs before a file could be seen, but I can't remember where that file was or where. from there I was able to remove the tabs I didn't want.
Can you refresh my memory please?

Within minutes of my last post....the image is printing when I enter the full URL of the image (C:\Users\jodyb\Documents\The Tournament Director 2\Data\images/express.jpg), but not with the <datastore> token or the
<img src="../images/express.jpg" width="240" height="174"> html

The code from the template and the output file is identical (see below). At first, from my PC (and the official version) the print settings within IE had the "print background colors and images" unchecked. After activating that feature the image printed on the receipt. From my laptop (and the beta version) I had to activate that option in IE but the images still aren't printing.

Dreamweaver gives me this in the template:
          <td align="center" style="font-size: 36pt"><nobr><img src="../images/express.jpg" width="240" height="174"></nobr></td>
And from the older version of TD (on another PC it prints fine.

Output gives me this
          <td align="center" style="font-size: 36pt"><nobr><img src="../images/express.jpg" width="240" height="174"></nobr></td>

To add a bit more information.
I'm using Dreamweaver to build a receipt. Using the beta version (and checking the HTML code after export) I see the <datastore> token is inserted even if I didn't use it to begin with. When using the same receipt template with the older version the image (logo) is printing fine.

Hi Corey.
Not sure if it's me or...I played with a receipt printer this weekend and can't get an image to print. The generated HTML shows an image on the top of the receipt but the printer (Epson TM IV-88) gives me an X (broken link). I tried placing the image in the images folder, templates folder and eslewhere on the hard drive. I used the <datastore>/images and <datastore>/template. I wrote out the full URL of the image and it still won't print the image.

//Couldn't you just buy the player into the tournament for however much they deposited, and then increase their buy-in for each additional deposit?  You could use the "Paid in full" box to indicate that they were fully paid up.  For example, buy the player into the tournament for $500 when they make the first payment, then increase their buy-in to $1500 when they paid the next $1000.

Or are you wanting to keep a ledger of sorts?  I mean, you want the TD to record each payment, where you could look back and see that someone paid $500 on this date, and then another $1000 on that date, etc.?//

 When I was in poker I was hoping to be able to look back at their payments but even while recording them in a spreadsheet the need to do so never came up. I hadn't thought about just using the buy-in option though.

//Well that sucks.  As obvious as it looks, it sounds like IE ran out of memory (probably your PC had plenty of memory, but the amount allocated by IE wasn't enough).  I know there is a memory leak of some kind.  I spent a good amount of time last year trying to figure out where it was, but eventually decided I had to move on.  The leak has been there since at least version 3.1, if I recall correctly, so I figured it wasn't crucial to fix it ASAP.  If you see this again, take a look at the mshta.exe process in the task manager and see how big the memory size is.  My development version starts up at about 100 to 150MB, and will go up over time, particularly if screens in the main window change often.  Once it gets to over 1GB in size (can't remember exactly where, maybe 1.7GB?) it may become unresponsive and/or crash.//

 I had to screenshot the error message because there wasn't an option to copy to clipboard. Not sure when you decided to remove that option but I got the message through. I'll have time tomorrow after work to play around after work so I'll see if I can recreate the crash.

I tried looking on the forums and in the help files but couldn't find what I was looking for... can you explain to me the itemN and amountN work when exporting to reciepts?

From the Player's Tab after a Buy-In. TD also crashed and completely shut down.

Hi Corey.
The Main Window looks great! (compared to the main window in previous versions).
I had a few ideas in mind before I stopped working in poker and I'll run them by you.
Towards the end of my poker career I was going to suggest allowing a way for players to leave a deposit on tournaments. While at Playground Poker Club we had several tournaments where the buy-in was over $3000 and $5000. We allowed people to make payments on the tournament and kept a spreadsheet for this. I was hoping, one day, TD would be able to do this as well. At the club we had one computer running our tournaments and always had a laptop at the tourney desk with TD running just in case. If TD would allow players to leave deposits on a tournament we could keep the laptop running the major tourney and enter in amounts. With the current version there is kind of a workaround. I am able to use a rebuy or an add-on to achieve this. I override the rebuy or add-on amount to reflect a theoretical payment and the amount paid shows up on the Players Tab. Then I came across an issue with what I tried to do. The receipts don't print any rebuy or add-on information purchased at the time of buy-in. So I was unable to print the amount paid to date. If possible,  a menu when right-clicking that would print player information (table/seat, buy-in, rebuy, add-on info). We had tournaments where players could purchase an initial add-on or rebuy before the start of the tournament and being able to sell this at the tournament counter would offer a bit more control over the number of add-ons/rebuys purchased. Or dealers would also handle less money at the table (the player could give the receipt and give the chips for add-ons/rebuys if it is shown on the receipt).
I'll be back when I explore the beta version a bit deeper!
