Version 3 Not Loading Prior Version Settings
« on: November 01, 2011, 06:01:43 PM »
Just installed Version 3, waiting on the License Key.  Opened my tournament template and found many settings were gone, particularly Rakes.  I had created a custom Rake ($10 split into two fields, one for snacks and beverages $4 and one for an end of year party $6).  Was there something I needed to do or a setting I needed to make?

Tryed to open the BETA version so I could at least run my tournament but that won't open now, something about license agreement expiring.

Any help would be appreciated.

Rake definitions are stored as Preferences.  Actual rakes are stored as part of a tournament.

So, I opened 2.5.12 and defined 2 rakes with custom names (like yours).  I then opened the sample tournament, set the Per-player rake (both values, since I have 2 rakes defined), and the Fixed rake (again, both values).  I then saved the tournament.

Then I opened 3.0.  The 2 rake definitions with custom names were there (the preferences were successfully upgraded).  I opened the tournament file and found that the rake values I set were there, too (the tournament file was successfully upgraded).

I never heard of a problem like this during the beta test.  Are you certain the rakes have disappeared?

Yes.  But it was easy enough to create them again.  However, my columns in the Stats tab seem to have reverted to a default setting.  Do I have to recreate my custom columns for the Stats tab and Players tab for export to a CSV file?

Well, you shouldn't have to because everything should have successfully converted to the new format, but if something was lost, I guess you'll have to recreate them...

Thanks for the reply.  I wish I was more versed in programming and HTML, oh the templates I could create.  And thank you for this great program, I am the envy of the local poker scene with my professionally run tournaments.  All because of your program. 

I know you're busy but is an update to the help section forthcoming?

Forthcoming?  Absolutely.  Soon?  I wish I knew.  At the moment I'm trying to keep up with upgrades, bug reports, etc.  As soon as things stabilize a bit, I'll be working on it.
