Version 2.5.3 is available
« on: April 22, 2008, 05:31:33 PM »
I discovered just before release of 2.5.3 that the new version check was broken in 2.5 and has remained broken since, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew that version 2.5.3 had been released.

Download at: http://www.thetournamentdirector.net/download.html


Version 2.5.3
======================================================================
New Features:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
- Added Table Blueprints for displaying dynamic table images on the
  Seating Chart screen (with players shown at specific locations
  within the image)
- Added printing to Rounds export, Prizes export, Tables export

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Bugs Fixed:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
- For Points for Playing and Tournament Scoring formulas, the variable
  "tnr" (for total number of rebuys) was set to the total number of
  add-ons; the variable "tna" (for total number of add-ons) was not
  set
- When importing players, an error could occur if the timestamp of
  the imported file could not be determined (rare)
- When editing cell properties, if all global property sets were
  deleted, an error could occur when tabs were switched (Odd Rounds/
  Even Rounds/Breaks tab) (very rare)
- If the language was changed, an error could occur when the Help
  dialog was displayed (very rare)
- On the Preferences tab, setting the "Decimal point" to an empty
  string caused an error (very rare)
- On the Quick Start Wizard, if the current tournament settings had
  changed, a confirmation dialog at the end of the wizard displayed,
  but the text was missing from the message catalog
- New version alert was broken

And the hits just keep on comin'. When you have time, how about a brief explanation of how to setup table blueprints? Thanks.
If it ain't naked, deep-fried or poker-related, I ain't interested!

Wait a minute...I found'em (at least those included w/app). Now if I can just figure out how to add an 11th seat. Yeah, we occasionally play some "close quarters poker"! ;D

I've included with the software blueprints and images for an 8-seat round table and a 10-seat racetrack table, 3 different sizes for each one.  The user manual has instructions for configuring the blueprints (see the Seating Chart Screen section).

You could adjust the seating on one of the 10-seat racetrack blueprints and add an 11th seat to achieve your 11-seat table.  I'm really not sure what would be the "easiest" way to do this.  You might use a paint program to determine the coordinates within the image for each seat.  Some might find this very easy, others might find it rather painful - kind of depends on your experience level I suppose.

To see one in action, load up the sample.tdt tournament - I've updated it to use a table blueprint.  I've also included a "DefaultWithTableImages.tlo" layout, which is, as the name implies, the Default layout but using table images (blueprints) instead.

To use a table blueprint in your own layout, go to the Seating Chart Screen, edit the Seating Chart Properties, and press the "Edit Table Images" button.  Add an image/blueprint and press Browse... The file browser should open by default to the "templates" folder with .xml files selected, so you should immediately see the included table blueprints.

Corey actually answered your question...as always!

I have to say, "this is a great program and forum".  Thanks Corey and T-bone for the fast replies.  I like the fact that the program is always improving.
GREAT JOB!

Well, I successfully added an 11th seat using the ever-popular "trial and error" method. It gave me a rather odd looking seating arrangement, so now I'm working on that using the aforementioned method. Actually, it's kind of fun! Jeez, I need to get a life.  :P

T-Bone,

How were you able to open the .xml file to modify?

T-Bone,

How were you able to open the .xml file to modify?

I used CoffeeCup HTML Editor which will open and allow you to edit XML. I assume other HTML editors will do the same. If not, there are a bunch of XML editors out there...some pretty good free ones, too.

Hey, Corey, any way to add the dealer button to the table blueprint?

Thanks T-Bone...I was trying to edit one last night and was going crazy.  I guess I need a life too.

Hi! And thanks for a great piece of software!

I love the new feature where you can display dynamic table images!

The only thing is that this seems to only be available on the built-in seating chart screen.
I would love to have this feature when using a seating chart on pages I create my self.

Because we never use more than 2-3 tables in a tounament (home game only) I want to be able to show other info on the seating chart page as well.
(number of players, prizepool, rules etc.) This is to be displayed before tournament starts.

Is this possible?
Or:
Would this be possible in future version?

Not possible now, possibly in a future version.
