Stat screen Bug

(1/2) > >>

TimDugan:
Something small, but I'd like to know if this is the same for everyone else.

1) I installed 2.2 into a new folder, then imported the player DB, and imported my current league and season.  When I tried to refresh the stats page, all the tournaments were filtered, but none of the players were filtered.  After playing with the filters for a bit, I finally opened an old tournament and found out that none of the players in the old tournament were listed as being in the database, even though I had imported the database from the last version.  Was this expected?

To remedy this easily, I uninstalled 2.2, created a copied folder of 2.1.2 and installed 2.2 over 2.1.2.  That retained my DB, settings, etc.

2) When I move the column tabs around by clicking and dragging them, a red "X" appears like there's a missing image.

Corey Cooper:
Dang it, that's because there is an image missing.  You should be seeing a pair of arrows indicating where the column will be placed should you drop it at that time.  I'll post an update this evening.

As for #1: You didn't describe how you imported your DB from your current install of version 2.1.2, but my guess is that you exported your players to a CSV file and then imported them the same way.  Yeah, this will not work the way you expect.  The problem is that each player (and league and season) has a unique internal (ie, the user never actually sees it) identifier, and that is what is referenced in your saved tournaments.  So as far as the software knew, the players in your 2.2 database were entirely different from your players in your 2.1.2 database, even though they had the same name, etc.

Here's a better way to do what you were attempting:  Use the "Backup" button on the Database page.  Backup the database and then unzip the resulting backup file into where you are installing the new version.

Oops.  Yeah, that's exactly how I imported the data.  Forgot to mention that :P  But as I said, I just copied the older version of the program into a new folder and installed 2.2 over it and it worked fine, probably because the internal identifiers were still all there.

So far the only problem I'm having with the program is that it's running slow for me.  Lagging I mean; it runs in real time, but whenever I go to do anything (change screens, bust out a player, change an option mid-game) or when the blinds change automatically, the program runs slowly.  So far that seems to be the only "problem" I've run into during the dummy tournament I ran.

Corey Cooper:
Ok, the beta has been updated to include the missing image.  I didn't rev the version for this little glitch.

Tim, I can't imagine why the software would now run more slowly.  Well, maybe I can.  But I can think of only one thing that has changed as far as updating the tournament screen goes, and that's the addition of background images to cells, rows, and columns.  But I noticed no appreciable speed difference when I added this feature.  There is also the addition of styles, but unless you create some, they have no effect.  Backgrounds are always set, but without you setting the properties a cell's (or row's or column's) background, I can't imagine it slowing anything down.

The Bust Players Out dialog is bound to be a little slower, since I changed it from a "select" list to a checkbox list.  The select list was initially used precisely for its speed - it renders very quickly, but it's a bit unwieldy when selecting multiple items, and it doesn't allow for "columns" of data.  On that dialog in particular I made every speed adjustment I could, and I weighed whether or not it should be changed, but consistency won out and I just had to be resigned to the fact that it will take more time to render.

Is there any more precise information you can give me?  I really don't want to slow the app down any more than it already is.

Played around with backgrounds in a lot of cells and it did not slow down the clock. I did get a script error when I tried to use the HTML styles. I emailed you the error file. Occurred when trying to do a cell and a column.

I like the ability to add backgrounds to the various cells, etc...that is a very nice feature....
