Help Me / Bounty Hunter
« on: March 21, 2012, 01:00:27 PM »
Running a bounty Hunter with 1 rebuy to include another Bounty Chip. Available for 3 rounds and a break.
Player busts out, does a rebuy and automatically gets a new bounty chip.
However  during the break, those who have not had a rebuy are allowed to have a rebuy. Obviously they cant have another bounty chip as they are still in and already have one.
I know that if 1 rebuy  a single  player during the break, when i do a rebuy. I can do it manually and  adjust the cost of the buy in by removing the bounty chips and cost from the buy in page .
 Doing it like this so it doesn't affect the number of bounties and the prize so that both the  bounties and main game prizes are correctl. And that right number of bounties and rebuys are shown.
Is there any way of setting this up automatically.

Thanks in advance

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Displaying a message on Hand to Hand
« on: March 15, 2012, 08:45:09 AM »
Is there anyway to display a ( multiple)  message for when the tournament reaches Hand for Hand and is on the money  bubble.
 
For instance 16 players left and only 15 get paid. Hand for hand announcement displays and then when the bubble is bust,  to announce hand for hand is over.
Plus Secondary Announcement
Then (as positions 11 - 15 get the same prizes money)to display another hand for hand announcement. When there is another bubble (when the prize money increases for position 10) and again another announcement to display that  Hand for Hand is over.

Could this be done on one message or would this have to be done a 2 separate messages.

Plus could this be tied up to include voice announcements of hand for hand etc

Haven't done any messages before. where's the best way to start?

Thx in advance

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Controls on fixed screens
« on: March 07, 2012, 07:22:36 AM »
I wanted to put the controls (buttons) on to the fixed screens ie, Ranking, Tables, Movement,Rounds etc.
 I had thought that I would be able to copy and paste the contents of the controls cell into the footer section that is on the page properties.
It didn't work.
Would like to know if this is possible and would i be able to do it like this. If not, is there a way to put the buttons on the screens?

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / my version of the card room layout
« on: February 20, 2012, 04:16:49 PM »
 A few months ago, Stumarr uploaded a layout. And he has since updated it, and a great job he has done too.

I am not very good with making or designing  layouts. Got to thinking of what i could do with the  layout and see  how far i could take it.

This is my take on it. I owe a lot to others on this forum. Timmer, Stumarr, Jody, Magi, Cory and many many others.
I Trawled the forums trying different things and borrowed many ideas.

We all have our own ideas of what makes a good layouts.
 I did this as an exercise, not because i can make it any better than any other layouts  but to understand how and why things work.

I think that in doing this as an exercise has helped me to get to the basics stage of finding out how layouts work (still got a long way to go).

Gonna start experimenting with photoshop so i can try to do some backgrounds of my own.
 I'll be delighted If i get to just 1% of Timmers ability as a background artist.

Also to say that thanks to Cory. This is one hell of a great program. I have tried a few other poker tournament software. But this program is far superior, more versatile and a pleasure to use.
Plus, a thanks to fellow TD forum posters. all who are willing to help each other.

Have a look at it and see what you think. If you can see anything that is wrong or anything that can be improved upon let me k
Any comments would be appreciated.

Help Me / Simple formula needed
« on: February 17, 2012, 12:31:47 PM »
The formula
n-r+1 gives each player one more point than the previous eliminated  player.

But how do I set this formula so that the score would only apply to the top 50 only.

For example: Players who finish 51st  and below would score no points/
So
1st would get 50
2nd would get 49
3rd would get 48
48th get 3 points
49th gets 2 points
50th gets 1 point

 I know thats its something to do with "max", but cant figure it out

Thanks in advance

Help Me / Rebuys
« on: February 04, 2012, 01:45:36 PM »
Never done many rebuys tournaments before.  I have a cell which displayed the rebuy and information.  The intention was to have this cell display untill the rebuy period was over.
Then in that cell i created a new property set on the same cell (called it - rebuys stopped) with the intention of getting this to replace the default cell after the rebuy period has ended. But it didn't work. I just couldn't figure how to adjust the  property set conditions.
The rebuys were for the first 4 levels and ended at the first break. Could any one point me in the right direction.
Attached is a screenshot of the property set and the conditions i tried to use.
Thanks in advance

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Video CLips
« on: February 03, 2012, 01:53:28 PM »
http://www.thetournamentdirector.net/forums/index.php?topic=827.0
I was reading some earlier posts and this one was about using Video clips in the same way as the sound clips are used.

 Has any one ever tried to do this or has done it.

The example given was that when a player was eliminated, a video of Arnie Swarzenegger would appear and he would give his famous quote "Hasta La Vista. Baby" Think this would be a novel way for when people are eliminated.


Does anyone know a site where you can down load short video clips from>

Suggestions / Adding a column on the stats tab
« on: February 02, 2012, 06:31:34 AM »
I run a side competition that runs throughout a league,  where each player scores points for eliminating another player.
I cant see anyway to display this on the stats screen at this time
Would it be possible to add a NEW column to the stats tab that would show:

1) the total points (EARNED FOR THE HITS) each players has earned in each game.
and
2) the total points (EARNED FOR THE HITS)  players have earned over the length of the league.

I have looked on the stats tab and i dont think there is a way to do this at the moment.
Thanks in advance

Help Me / Padding in a cell
« on: January 30, 2012, 03:08:32 PM »
Could some one explain what padding does in a cell? I have read the reference to it in the help files. But cant figure how this would work or in what context this would be used. Could someone try and explain this for me and to give an example?

Help Me / antes sounding
« on: January 27, 2012, 07:33:48 AM »
I am setting up a tournament using 1 layout. I couldn't decide whether to have antes with the tournament. So i set up the antes and then hid the antes column on the rounds tab.  How ever when running a mock game, the antes kicked in.
I thought that by hiding the antes column it would mean the antes would not be used. I that right?
Or do have have to  edit the round and then manually delete the antes to stop them from sounding?

thanks in advance

edit
I deleted the antes by going to the rounds tab and manually deleted the antes from each round , but they are still sounding.
The events that i use is  i use for all other games and it has never done this before. Any ideas

Help Me / Same cells . different layouts
« on: January 26, 2012, 04:35:31 AM »
I have 2 layouts, 1 for a monthly game and 1 for an End of year game. They are both based on the card room layout. Both have been  saved with a different name.  Many of the cells in each layout have the same names.
What i would like to know is: If i alter a cell in one layout, could it change the equivalent cell in the other layout?

cheers

Help Me / Formatting
« on: January 25, 2012, 09:39:44 AM »
On my main TD screen I have 2 cells. The first one (the prize money)  i have managed to format ( as you can see in the attached file).

I used this in the cell:-
A total of <bountyTotal roundOff="true"> with <bountyChipCount> bounties to win@ 5.00 each. <BR>
Number of Main Game Prizes: <numberofrankedprizes><br>Position & Prize Money<br>
<rankings showTimeOut="true" showRoundOut="false" showStillIn="true" showHitman="true" showHits="true" showWinnings="true" showPoints="false" showColumnTitles="True" max="8


The second cell show the number of Bounties that players have won and also the amount they have won

For this cell i have used:-

Top 10 Bounty Hunters<br><BR>
<bountyWinners orient="vertical" max="8" showAll="false" showCounts="true" showAmounts="true" roundOffAmounts="false" sortBy="count"> <BR><BR>


But as you can see the first cell is much better laid out. Is there any way that i can show the 2nd cell, the same way as the 1st cell. And i would also like to show the points that awarded for the hit in there too.

Tried  to format it the same way as the first cell, but to no avail. Any ideas how this is done or even if it can be done?

much appreciated, thanks in advance
