RE: Formula to Show 1st Place Earnings
« on: August 20, 2008, 05:26:06 AM »
Under the events tab, I was able to come up with triggers (I used the trigger "when a player busts out") to display a text message showing how much money each player won after they bust out of a tournament.  I used the tokens: hitman, name, and winnings.  But I am unsuccessful in coming up with a trigger for the 1st place finisher. 

What formula, tokens, etc. should I use to trigger a message displaying text showing the total money (including bounties, etc.) won by the 1st place finisher of the tournament?

Since the first place finisher doesn't bust-out, there's really no way to display that amount using the events feature.  Off the top of my head, I would suggest creating a new screen that displays when the tournament is over, and have that screen display the amount the first place finisher won (using the <prizes> token).

That's a great suggestion; however, I don't think it will show the total amount (including bounties, etc.) for the first place finisher.  Is there another way to tackle this?

You could always go to the Player Rankings screen after the tournament.  You can change which columns are displayed, so you could include the player's total winnings.  Or use the <rankings> token on a screen of your own.

That works.  Thanks Corey.
