Yes, in my desperate attempts to finally get this version out, I have completely disregarded the user manual.  I do intend to, hopefully sooner rather than later, update the user manual.  In the meantime, you'll have to settle on asking me questions here. :)
OK then I ask, how does it work  ;)?
LOL

Just found out that the 2.6b5 will no longer work. Guess I will have to use V3 tonight. I will run a quick test tourney this afternoon. Wish me luck!

Well, what do you want to know?  :-)

The Status Updates feature will write the status of the tournament to a file, or send it to a URL, at a specified interval.  Much like Auto-save, you can have it update on a timer (basically), and optionally update after significant things happen (someone buys-in, someone busts-out, etc).

What it writes to the file or sends to the URL is more or less a list of variables and their values, corresponding to the same variables available to you in formulas.  The best way to see what is happening is to configure the Status Updates to write the data to a file, then go look at the file (Notepad will suffice).

It is intended for a program to be able to consume the output, and isn't really intended for human consumption.  Some people had mentioned wanting to be able to post updates to their website in real time.  Using this feature, the TD could be configured to POST the data to the website automatically.  On the website, PHP or some other scripting language (for example) could process the data when it comes in, perhaps putting it into a local database.  A page could be constructed that would read from the database and output something intended for browsers.

This first version has a fair amount of data.  However, since the feature has never actually been used at this point, I was hoping for some feedback from people who will actually use it, so it can be improved in the future, or removed if it's not a useful feature.

I think the statusupdates can be very useful, i really hope that someone with the skiills can make us some useful examples.

I think that a "live update" feature for my website would be a great funktion.

Image the possibilities to have a smartphone adapted statuspage so that anyone could get live updates on their phone for example.

Any chance that player names, and bust-out player names and maby even the current ranking (chipstacks) will be included in the status updates?

I tested to create a file, test.txt (with success) but the outcome is just a bunch of text that basically doesn't say anything. Any chance that the Status Update can create a html file with the same view like Player Ranking?

Sorry about that!  I never meant to cut it this close.  :)

Exactly what I meant when I said "I was hoping for some feedback from people who will actually use it, so it can be improved in the future, or removed if it's not a useful feature."

You would have to have a dynamic page on your website that would accept the information, and then do something with it.

There's no facility for logging in, but it is something that could be added in the future.  I could, for example, add the ability to create your own HTTP headers that go with the request.  But personally I would think it's unnecessary.  If it's a page that only accepts data it is expecting, there's very little need for security.

Possibly in the future.  As I said, the idea is that the output is designed to be consumed by another program.

Thanks.  Clearly going to have to look deeper into that.
