Corey to the rescue once again.
Thank you..

Beta Testing / Re: 3.2 beta 1
« on: January 10, 2013, 02:17:07 AM »
Corey, you are the man...
I have been an "early adopter" with most of my favourite software and of course hardware, and you Corey are probably the the most "openminded" in means of user feedback and suggestions.
Its always great to check in to the forum and see answers to any question or suggestion one might have asked.
I really appreciate it and i think allot of peapol here do the same.

Keep up the good work.

Beta Testing / Re: prefs file
« on: January 08, 2013, 02:14:43 PM »
The software always uses the same location to store prefs (and yes, the path remains the same from version 2 to facilitate upgrading).  If you've upgraded your current version 3.0 or 3.1 or 3.1.1 to version 3.2.b1, then this should be what you want.  But, if you've installed 3.2.b1 in a separate folder and plan to use them both (testing 3.2.b1, and falling back on 3.x when necessary), then you probably want to use the backup feature to save things ... just in case, and restore them when you return to 3.x if necessary.  Of course, you could also just make a copy of the prefs.sav file and save it somewhere else.

I actually do have this on the to-do list, and will be trying to get it in for 3.2.
I made a backup of my datastorage (dropbox folder) and then installed the beta in a separate folder on my harddrive and pointed the path for datastorage on a new copy of the old datastorage folder.
i forgot to backup the prefs file, but now when i have had a look at it i see that it only contain TD specific information, and no computer specific information, so i think i remember most of my settings so i will be able to reset them.

The ability to set the path for the prefs file and the 2-3 other files in that folder, (i do have a folder structure in there to, but i guess its not in use when i have my datastorage in my dropbox) would make my day.
I don't know how many times i have been tweaking TD at the home computer , just to realize that i forgot what i did, and the prefs file in my laptop isn't updated. (mainly statusupdate settings witch worked fine at home, but not at the tournament.)
If you are able to get it in there, that sounds great..

Beta Testing / Re: Flash screen i HTML screen mode
« on: January 08, 2013, 01:58:07 PM »
So do you see the screen go white (or whatever color you picked) and not fade back to normal?

This is sort of a test feature.  I implemented it with my own code, and then decided to test some jQuery integration by rewriting it to use a modified version of jQuery.  Once I got it working (via a modified jQuery), I decided to leave it that way to see what other issues might come up.  Sounds like you might have already run into one.

The screen just went yellow and never came back, had to quit TD to get my desktop back.

Suggestions / larger toolbox
« on: January 08, 2013, 07:38:20 AM »
is there any way to get the "toolbox" wider on the layout screen in settings.
Maybe there could be possible to drag the width to the size you would want.

At home i have a very large monitor, and there i could use a bigger toolbox because it won't interfere with the layout area

Beta Testing / prefs file
« on: January 08, 2013, 07:31:19 AM »
I noticed now when installing the 3.2.1 in separate folder that it overwrites the prefs file (located in c:\user\xxxxx\Documents\The Tournament Director 2
(i guess that path comes from the early days running TD 2)

If i could wish, i would like to have the prefs file in "datastorage" so it could be shared on multiple computers. (maybe the file contains per computer specific information and therefor is impossible)
Or if i could have the possibility to choose where to place the file at install, so that it don't overwrite the old one that i still need for the stable release.
Or at least the possibility to change the path to the folder containing the prefs, and other files under "preferences/config files"

It would be great to be able to run both versions on same computer during testing of the beta releases

Beta Testing / Flash screen i HTML screen mode
« on: January 08, 2013, 07:11:21 AM »
Hello Corey.

I made a simple HTML layout for testing.

I noticed 2 things at once.

1. added the token <clock>, but it wont count down when i start the tournament.
(perhaps the HTML screen format is for other screens besides "main" tournament screen)

2. when trying the new event action "flash" the screen changes to the colour i choose, but then stays in that fullscreen colour.
(i am using dual screens)

I tried this during lunchbreak at work, will continue to test allot more later..
Glad to see all the new features, allready love the ability to have multiple buy-in profiles, and the ability to have a token that display diffrent rake's.

The <break> token has a value of 0 before the first break in the schedule.  It will have a value of 1 during the first break and continue to have a value of 1 until the second break in the schedule starts, when it will change to 2.

So that means that i cant get the upcoming break number in advance, because i cant use offset+1 on that token.

When using token <break> it shows the number 0 when break 1, number 1 when break 2, and so on..
Tried to use <break offset="+1"> but that one didn't work.

I could settle for using the text "Break" only and not "Break #1" but it would be nice to have.

Thanks, that is so obvious when you think about it.
Once again, Corey to the rescue..

Help Me / Using rake to keep track of sidepot
« on: December 22, 2012, 05:06:35 AM »
I'm going to run a tournament where you can either buy in for the regular cost (500) or for a "highstakes cost" (1000) where the "sidepot" (the extra 500 from those buying in for 1000) is being given to the person that lasts longer out of the ones buying in for 1000.

i think of using an rake that i name "sidepot" to keep track of the ones that buy in for the larger amount, and so far it seems to work when i run a test at home. (i don't know if this is the proper way of doing it)

But is there any way to get the information about the amount of the sidpot in a cell in my layout.
I could edit it my self manually, but i would like it to work like a token ex <rake rakeName="Sidepot"> and the ability to have a condition like "if rake rakeName="Sidepot" > 0

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Event to know if to "chip up" at break
« on: December 22, 2012, 04:08:13 AM »
Is there any way to set conditions so it knows if its time to chip up or not?

Now i have 3 events (one for each break) with these conditions:

(not isRound) and (breakNum = 1)
(not isRound) and (breakNum = 2)
(not isRound) and (breakNum = 3)

but some times i have the "chip up" at break 2 and sometimes at break 3, depending on what rounds schedule i use.

Is there any way to use only 2 events with conditions like
(break = true)
(break = true and chipup = true)

Because at start of "non chip up" breaks i play a sound, and at "chip up" break i play a diffrent sound and show a message.
if i would always have the chip up at the same break there would not be a problem.

Help Me / Re: Where are tokens saved?
« on: December 22, 2012, 03:42:53 AM »
Sorry, i remembered wrong, i had put the HTML under events as a message.
The reason for it not to work was because i had it on break 3 instead of break 2 the other time.

Help Me / Where are tokens saved?
« on: December 22, 2012, 03:35:27 AM »
For some weeks ago i made a token by clicking the break number 2 in my rounds schedule, and added some html code for showing that the players should stack their lowest value of chips in front of them so the floor manager could easily go around a do the chip-up.

The week after that i run the tournament and there was no token.
I might have loaded a different rounds schedule, or made any other changes, but now i cant find the token any more.
