Help Me / Add Player to tournament search scope?
« on: August 09, 2014, 10:40:56 AM »
Waaay back when I was using TD V2 (last month) when I added a player to a tournament, I could click on the "Add Player" button. A dialog box would come up that defaulted to the league of the tournament in question. Underneath would be a search dialog. When I entered names in that dialog it would search not just the league, but the entire database. This was really helpful as we always have several non-league members play with us.

However, in V3 when I do this same thing, the search is restricted to the league. Is there some way to expand the scope of this search? I had thought that disabling "Strict Search" in Preferences -> Behavior would do it, but it doesn't.

This is a minor inconvenience but, I was wondering if there's some way to get the "Add Player" dialog to function the same as it did in V2. Alternatively is there a way to get the "add player" dialog box to automatically come up with "<All>" as the default league?

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / chips token misaligned
« on: July 14, 2014, 11:38:53 PM »
I use the chips token as follows.

Code: [Select]
<chips size="60" columns="5" width="150" values="bottom">

Unfortunately, the labels are not centered as shown in the screenshot. Is there something I can do to get them centered? This same token (configured identically) worked with the labels centered in V2, but in V3 they're offset as shown below. Anything I can do to fix this?

Help Me / TD 2.5.14 all the sudden crashy
« on: July 12, 2014, 08:38:27 AM »
Ok. I'm going to start this post saying that, yeah I know TheTD is up to version 3.3. I can't upgrade yet (see below for explanation).

Anyway, all of the sudden during last night's club tournament, TheTD got really crash happy. Any time I moved around on the settings window (e.g. between the controls tab and the game tab), I'd get a crash that looked like the attached screenshot. 

Additionally, it would frequently slow down to unusable levels, where just clicking on a check box would take 15 seconds before the click was registered. Or typing a name in a search box took a 30-40 seconds. (I did notice that when things were really slow, the CPU on mshta.exe was pegged.)

This problem wasn't happening in last month's tournament. In between then and now, I made the following changes:

  • I added a new season for our league
  • I set our tournament template.tdt to default to the new season
  • I added a 25-25 round
  • I modified the events to add the 25-25 round announcement
  • I modified the layout to undisplay the prizes element

Fortunately, using dropbox for my saves, I can go back to the tournament template.tdt that I was using prior to making the above changes and see if that's the problem. After doing that, I'm still having the same crashy problems with that template.

I'm hopeful that there's something that I can do so that I can continue to use V2. If not, I'm going to have a lot of questions for how to convert to V3... but I'll start that as another thread if it comes to it.

Why I can't upgrade:
There are two people in my club who have a license for TheTD. When I purchased a license, I was able to get a free upgrade to the V3 license. My clubmate has to pay for a V3 license upgrade and hasn't. Until he does, his computer is the backup in case my computer dies. So I'm stuck on v2.5.14 until he upgrades his license.

Help Me / pointsforplaying token
« on: March 11, 2013, 08:50:41 PM »
I use the following formula in the points for playing section:


I'd like to use the pointsforplaying token, but whenever I do, every place is zero.

If, instead I use this formula, I get the results I want in pointsforplaying:


Is there a way to set "inLeague" to 1 in the pointsforplaying token?  I've tried doing this, but it didn't work:

     <pointsforplaying orient="horizontal" ranks="1-5" displayRank="true" inLeague="1">
