Help Me / Re: Help with a Shoot0out format
« on: March 27, 2007, 07:27:25 AM »
Simple enough.  Just pause the tournament, go to the "Rounds" tab, right click on the level you want to go to and select "Set as current round."

Help Me / Re: how do i register and i already have a licencse
« on: March 02, 2007, 01:43:24 PM »
Eh heh...

Yeah...

...well, after you've downloaded the program and installed it, you open the program and click on the button that says "Register."  It's right above the "Exit" button on the first screen you see.  Then, all you have to do is enter the registration code you were emailed.

So...yeah...good luck with that.

Suggestions / Re: New sound effect
« on: February 20, 2007, 05:44:26 PM »
I'll put it on the list.  A beta should hopefully be available in the coming few weeks - depends on how much I try to squeeze into this release.  There are a couple of things I'd really like to do, but given their size/scope, they may have to wait...

It's been a little bit since the last release...I'm very interested to see what you've got coming :)

Suggestions / New sound effect
« on: February 20, 2007, 10:25:24 AM »
Hey everyone; it's been a loooong time since I've visited the forum. 

On that note, Cory I don't know when you're planning on another update, but I have a suggestion for a new sound event if it's possible.  I don't know if this has been asked in the past...I tried the search and didn't find anything...

Is it possible to make a separate sound event for when there's a chop?  I have a sound file from Deal or No Deal that I think would be awesome for such a situation.

Anyway, still using/loving the program since it was released in late '05 although not as much since my league kind of...died.

Help Me / Re: Why should I upgrade?
« on: January 23, 2007, 04:48:19 PM »
As far as running a heads up tournament; I have on my hard drive tourney brackets for any number of people from 2-32 double elimination style and 33-64 single elimination.  They're all MS Word .docs; you can just print them out and use those for your tourney.  On TD, just make a bunch of 2 person tables and plug the correct matchups in (and in 2.2, you can click and drag players from one table to another so it's easy).

If you or anyone else wants these brackets file (it's a .zip so I can't post it), just email me :)

General Discussion / Re: TD 2 vs TD2.21
« on: October 02, 2006, 06:22:49 AM »
It's covered; just download and install it over your copy of 2.0 and you'll be fine.  If you're worried, copy the folder you installed TD 2.0 in, but there shouldn't (and won't) be a problem.

Help Me / Re: Can you export to your own website?
« on: September 14, 2006, 12:26:43 PM »
You can export your stats to a straight .html file, which you can then upload directly to your website.

Help Me / Re: Point Bounty?
« on: August 25, 2006, 11:22:08 AM »
Sure is.  You'll have to do it manually under the prize tab.  Just select "Bounty on Player" under the "Recipient" section when creating a new prize, then select "non-monetary" under the Amount section and select the points. :)

Help Me / Re: Can ANYONE give me a formula that works??????
« on: August 08, 2006, 11:37:55 AM »
All I want to do is run a league that gives points from first place to last place for a league that plays 16 games...

Why is it so difficult to get this program to calculate points??

Does anyone know how to make this thing do that....rather than averages????

I am about ready to scrap this program and opt for something simple.....its a shame I like the features but I dont have time sit and wait for days on end to get a something as simple as points awarded to the players that play...

I NEED HELP......PLEEEEEEEAAASSSSEEE.....

My goodness man, calm down.  The program does everything you're asking for.

The easiest way for me to tell what you're having problems with is for you to upload your tournament file to the board so I (and others) can check it.  So, just upload one (or all) of the saved tournament(s) and I'll be happy to figure out what's wrong, because trying to guess from your post is amazingly hard.  It could either be that you haven't properly set up the "Stats" page, that your formulas aren't correct, that you're doing something else that's making the program go nuts, etc.  It could be any number of things really.

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Re: Heads Up
« on: July 31, 2006, 10:32:15 PM »
Well . . . I just set up all of the tables as seating 2 and just went from there.  Turn off the automatic balancing and just condense tables yourself after each round.  As for the blinds, what I did was set up 8 levels for each "round," and ended up with 32 blind levels.

It's doable, but it takes a little work.

Beta Testing / Re: Stat screen Bug
« on: July 29, 2006, 08:52:48 PM »
I ran a real tournament and it ran better than the dummy one I'd run a few days ago.  Of course, it could be because the real tournament had 7 players while the dummy tournament had 45.  I think the other tournament was running slow for me just because the program had too much to load.  *shrugs*  Worked fine otherwise for me so far.

Help Me / Re: clock

Are you talking about the mini-clock on the top corner of the screen?  Those are options in the preference screen.

Beta Testing / Re: Stat screen Bug
« on: July 25, 2006, 01:03:35 PM »
Dang it, that's because there is an image missing.  You should be seeing a pair of arrows indicating where the column will be placed should you drop it at that time.  I'll post an update this evening.

As for #1: You didn't describe how you imported your DB from your current install of version 2.1.2, but my guess is that you exported your players to a CSV file and then imported them the same way.  Yeah, this will not work the way you expect.  The problem is that each player (and league and season) has a unique internal (ie, the user never actually sees it) identifier, and that is what is referenced in your saved tournaments.  So as far as the software knew, the players in your 2.2 database were entirely different from your players in your 2.1.2 database, even though they had the same name, etc.

Here's a better way to do what you were attempting:  Use the "Backup" button on the Database page.  Backup the database and then unzip the resulting backup file into where you are installing the new version.

Oops.  Yeah, that's exactly how I imported the data.  Forgot to mention that :P  But as I said, I just copied the older version of the program into a new folder and installed 2.2 over it and it worked fine, probably because the internal identifiers were still all there.

So far the only problem I'm having with the program is that it's running slow for me.  Lagging I mean; it runs in real time, but whenever I go to do anything (change screens, bust out a player, change an option mid-game) or when the blinds change automatically, the program runs slowly.  So far that seems to be the only "problem" I've run into during the dummy tournament I ran.
