Help Me / moved from 64bit to 32bit environment, paths seem hardcoded?
« on: February 02, 2011, 04:30:42 PM »
I initially installed TD on a Vista laptop. When Windows 7 came available, I moved over to the 64bit version. This meant that certain files are stored in "c:\program files\" and some in "c:\program files(x86)\".
Windows 7 did not work well with my set up (due to no vendor supplied Windows 7 video drivers) so, my S-Video output ended up causing the laptop to either reboot, stop responding, or just blue screen. Obviously, if this happens while running a tournament, I have a problem.

My solution was to install Ubuntu on the laptop and use VirtaulBox OSE to run a Windows XP (legal) virtual machine. This works very well. What does not work well is that when I restore from my backup, some of my layouts and templates (maybe most of them) fail to load properly because of the Path issue. I was able to work around one of those issues by just re-selecting the path. I tried to get around by re-installing, even installing the Beta to see if things were a bit more configurable. The first (and hopefully only) problem I have found is when I try to load 'Automatic' prizes, I am presented with a dialog that states "the configuration file is missing or has an error ... click on the Configure button.' When I do that, the next dialog pops up, and the path is displayed at the top of the page, but there is no where to edit.

Can I edit some file, or files, to pull out all of the ' (x86)' references?

Thanks ahead of time.

Help Me / Points v. Score v. Overall Score
« on: March 10, 2009, 03:49:28 PM »
Ok, I am struggling a bit with this and hope I can get some help.

I am trying to use a modified Dr. Neau's formula to create points based on how much you paid, number of players, and your rank. I am excluding bounties, etc. When I enter the formula in the main Tournament Settings Screen, they display correctly. When I go to stats, and I filter from 2009/1/1 - 2009/1/31, my 'Overall Score' shows correctly (defined as 'scores') and my tournament scoring is defined as 'sqrt((n * bc)) / (r + 1.0)'.
After filtering and loading all of the tournaments, my January numbers are fine.

If I adjust the filter to 2009/2/1->2009/2/28, I get 'Overall scores' that are close, but some are 0.0000 for players that placed and some actually cashed. If I change the way Overall scores are defined to sum(scores), it shows all tournaments from 2009/1/1 even though the filter is supposed to be for just February.  arrrrgh! Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as i really want to get this right.

I did not see in the documentation where there was a way to determine a difference between 'points', 'score', and 'overall score'. Can anyone point me in the right direction?


Help Me / Re: License Expired or just plain gone??

Okay. So, I found and re-entered my license key. All is good... kind of.

What I am trying to truly solve is the issue of exporting results and not being able to 'see' the file with explorer unless i put it in \tmp.

Thanks for the help!

Ok, I am not sure what I did, but I know I did something.

I am trying to see my save files, and from within the TD2 software, I can. From Explorer (File, not Internet) I cannot. From the command line, I cannot. Same user, same directory. So, what I did was turn off UAC and reboot. I then tried, albeit unsuccessfully, to change the permissions of the directory and files, removing the partial read only, only to find them reset. /me scratches his head about that part anyway.

So, I go to launch the software after the reboot, and I get the 'this is evaluation software, you have 30 days to register' notice. Like I said, I am sure that this is something that I have done, but have no way to find out what I did wrong.

I have purchased and run this software for years. I absolutely love it.  Can anyone help a Unix guy fix his Vista machine????

Thanks in Advance!

Ok, thanks!

What I would like to do is query the database that you have built. StatsGenie does a good job of canned reports... I want to do some trending queries. Exporting will give me a snapshot, but it will not give me 'over time' data. The database should do that, right?

Unless you can do a full DB dump... if that is possible, then I have just missed it.

We use StatsGenie to import all of our tournament results. The export feature is awesome. What I would like to see is either some documented API or simple tools to allow me to query and build my own reports. Is there an option for this API request? Is there already something I can use?


Keep up the great work. The Software is already stellar.
