I like the new feature of inputing table images with the players names. 

I was wondering is there is a way of putting a border around each name at the table?  Can it be programed in the .XML file and if so, what's the coding?

There is not.  This is an issue of software vs image, and how complex I wanted the table image stuff to be.  It certainly *could* be modified to allow for things like this, but on the other hand, since you know where the names are going to be, you can modify the image and place borders directly in the image.

Seat numbers were another issue like this.  I initially wasn't going to include a feature for displaying seat numbers, since they could be placed on the image as well.  But I realized that some people may want seat 1 to be at a different seat, and it would be a big hassle to change the image for this.  It would be more convenient to include options in the XML.

Borders around names, I feel, aren't as important.  You know where the names will go, it's a one-time thing for you to add the borders to an image.  That vs. adding more options that will potentially confuse other users.

I like the idea, but I use octagonal table tops and neither of the existing layout styles really look right. Is there anyone out there who could help me please?

Originally I had intended to include a blueprint for an octagonal table, but honestly I couldn't find a decent image for one.  And I'm no good with Photoshop or Gimp.  If you give me an image, I'll create the blueprint for it.

Cheers Corey, is this any good?

Please note, the seating positions are on the corners not the flat sides

Attached is the blueprint for this table.

The problem with the image is that it has a white background, as opposed to a transparent background.  This will look fine if your Seating Chart screen background color is white, but not so great otherwise.  You can edit the image to change the white background to transparent if you've got the patience...  Otherwise you'll probably want to change the font color for player names.

Save the blueprint (xml) file to your "templates" folder (or where ever you want, really).  Save the table image posted by badbeat to your "images" folder.

The file name is a misnomer, sorry about that.

Cheers Corey, I've changed the background colour and the name so it works a bit better now. If anyone can change it to transparent, that would be even better.

Yeah, sorry, kinda brain-farted on that one.  I was thinking I would have to actually edit the image and do some painting, but it was really just a case of making "white" the transparent color.  Doh.
