roundout variable does not work for winner
« on: March 07, 2010, 04:18:58 PM »
I know the variable is set once a player is busted out. I'd like to award points for every round a playert lasts, based on the roundout variable. The problem is that the winner does not get these points as his "ro" variable is empty.

Is there a workaround to this problem?

They're my downfall too, but as TIMMER was eluding to, you should be able to do it via prizes tab. What you would want to do, though (i think) is to create a prize for each player, and manually enter the points for their round out bonus that you're trying to do.

Nope, no workaround other than to do it manually.  The "ro" and "roundOut" variables are indeed empty, because the winner never busted out.  You'll probably have to adjust the winner's points by editing the winner on the Players tab.

I'm not sure if there is a way, but can you award points for each round they are still in and complete?

That may help here.

What I'd like is to award points for each round a player lasts. So if you get busted out in round 5, you get 50 points. And if you get busted out in round 8 you get 80 points.

So far no problem. I can use (ro*10) as a formula. But the winner gets no ro (RoundOut) as stated above, so this formula doesn't give the winner points. He (or she) should get the same amount of points as the runner up, as they both finish the game in the same round.

So what i need is a variable like CurrentRound or LastRound. Any chance the developers would put this in?

It could be added, but I wouldn't consider it a very high priority item.  Especially when you can simply adjust the winner's points manually (versus having to adjust everyone's points - you only have to do this for one player, so it's an easy workaround).
