apologies... typo

if (rank <= 15, log((n+1)/r),0)

Had the parenthesis in the wrong place.

Corey was able to help me get on with my top n calculations.  If I understand your request, you give points to the top 15 finishers in any given tournament.

I would think you need to modify your points calculation based on that criteria.

points = (if rank <= 15, log((n+1)/r), 0)

That should only give points to the top 15 players.
With each tournament keeping it's own score, and if you have player tracking turned on, then it would update the total points for a particular player based on their points for that particular season. <- sure hope that made sense.

I certainly hope this is proper advice.

For 20 players, would first get 100?

Can you create a quick chart for what you expect with 10 players, 20 players, and 6 players?

Thanks for the quick reply.

I did look at Rake as a way to keep track, and stopped because I thought it applied to every player. I will revisit and see if I can get it to be player by player, or at least understand it better.
w/r/t the summation, that's great!

Thanks again Corey, you really have made a truly great product.

So, yet another option... How do you qualify your ToC? Points, Wins, Other?
I am curious to know... maybe I should do it differently.   The whole reason I went with points, and then limiting to the top n scores, was because not everyone could make every tournament. If they showed up, and paid, for ~ half the tournaments, then they still had a fighting chance.

Apologies for the late reply.

A player must play 'x' of the potential 'n' tournaments within a year.
In our case, for this upcoming year, it will be 7 of the 12 potential (one per month).
Only the best 'y' (same minimum as 'x', but if it could be variable, that'd be cool too)  points finishes get summed.
From there, only the top 10 players (again, this could change) play in the ToC, but we are looking at a single table.
I hope that isn't too complicated and it answers your questions.

I would like tTD to be able to track those that are willing to compete (not all my guys are because the extra money is 'tight') And if they are "in" the running, then they have a 'leaderboard'.

As an aside, I know of another group, that tracks true "Champions" and at the end of their season, only people that have "won" a tournament qualify, regardless of points. I guess there are at least two models here. One that is a true ToC, and one that is a 'points leaders' tournament. Just food for thought.

Help Me / ToC consideration(s) and configuration
« on: December 16, 2015, 06:49:57 PM »
First off, I am not sure if this should go under suggestions, or this topic, but in case I missed something that already exists... here I am.

So, we run a monthly tournament, and most of the players are interested in contributing a specific amount, instead of a 'rake', each month that helps them qualify for a year end Tournament of Champions. The concept is more of a 'point totals' tournament, but we just call it ToC. Out of a 12 tournament schedule, you _must_ play at least 9 tournaments to qualify, and your top 7 point finishes count. What I am looking for is a way to designate a player as being part of the particular year's competition. Right now, I do this by hand, and will continue to do so, but if the software already allows it, or can in the future, that'd be great.  I guess the question part is "Is there already a way to do this?" and the suggestion part is "Can this be added?"
I already keep separate seasons for each year. I am trying to then 'tag' players that are contributing each month, and not charge those that do not. To add a wrench to this... we did have one player last year that committed to playing, and 3 tournaments in decided to back out for the year.

Well, there is a strong chance that it is the VM. It is an old Win XP image, and as I step through troubleshooting, I am finding some issues with the datastore. I have increased the RAM and Processor count, but sadly, it is a 32bit build, so it really _may_ not help. I am in the process of building a new machine, I will do my best to reply back and let you know what I find. Thank you for indulging my issue and providing feedback.

Just the main clock, but I will say, the functions keys were also not behaving "normally". F2 brought up the seating chart, and then the tournament, and then nothing. Once the seating chart was only 2 players long and the screen was not completely visible. It truly was odd. The small clock in the upper left hand side did continue to update correctly.

Thanks Stuart. I will certainly look into the VM being the issue. I did not think that TD would bog down (yes, I know it is virtual, so YMMV) an 3GHz w/ 3GB RAM vm. This is VMWare ESX 5 and it is the only Windows machine running there. The rest are small Linux boxes that do DNS, and local development work only, so they are not typically taxed during tournaments (unless I get busted early). I will fiddle with it and see what I can get to happen. Maybe setting some 'reservation' memory/CPU would be a good start.

Thanks again.

I run TD from a virtual machine, and use a laptop to display the tournament over a VNC connection. Tonight, after upgrading to the latest version, and the most recent patches, when I ran the tournament, the clock never updated. We run with 20 minute blinds. I got the 'paused' display flashing, hit the space bar, and the flashing stopped, but the clock never moved. I went to the seating chart, and the small clock in the upper left hand corner (ULC) displayed the proper time. I went back to the Tournament, and it showed the current time, but did not update yet again. I had to run my tournament by looking at the small ULC clock. I had seen this type of behavior in a previous version, somewhere in the 2.x series, but it was working fine in 3.x until today. I tried with different VNC connections, using different types of clients, and all had the same result. The Virtual Machine PC had been rebooted recently as well, due to security updates... Any ideas? Need any other information?

I figured if it was not already in there, it is for a good reason. Thanks for taking a look and providing feedback.

when the Application is running, you can do a stats dump. Does the app just load _everything_ into memory, and then query arrays/hashes/objects/etc.? Maybe a future version could use a postgres/MySQL/SQLite type 'redistributible' db??

i am now preparing myself for the open->export->name repetition nightmare. =) I will probably take all of the XML and put it into a MySQL db anyway, just so I can do my own queries.

Thanks again for a Great Product!

Help Me / Mass conversion of TDT to XML
« on: May 19, 2011, 12:19:57 PM »
I have run about 200 tournaments since I have used TD. I have had multiple computer crashes/changes/virtualization issues in the past. The only thing that has survived all of this are my backups, and my TDT files.

Now, I am interested in compiling all of this data by importing from XML. (Unless Corey will let me know his DB Schema so I do not have to re-create everything).
My purpose for this is only to gather and display statistics for my players. Is there a way, other than 'Load->Export', repeat 200 times, to do this? Is the TDT format something I can parse?
Even just a DB dump would be fine by me.

Help Me / Re: moved from 64bit to 32bit environment, paths seem hardcoded?
« on: February 04, 2011, 04:18:36 PM »

Thanks for the update. After looking more deeply, I guess the issue is not 'I cannot seem to configure this' but one of, 'the Configure button does not open a configuration dialog box.' I did move from 64bit back to 32bit, so the prefs file referenced the now, non-existant "x86" directory.

I did edit the file directly, but also found that via the 'Preferences' dialog I could have set that value.
When I tried to open the prizes directly, I got the 'cannot open template' error and was presented with a button to configure, but that button did not open the appropriate dialog box.

In short, my issue is resolved. And you and your software have provided a way to change the value if a problem exists, but the direct route did not work. I really hope this makes sense.
