A minor suggestion.  I like the layout, and the background, but sometimes the text can be hard to read unless the background is sufficiently dark enough.  I've been playing around with applying a shaded but still transparent background to text.  Actually, I'm trying to put together another simple layout using this technique for version 3.2.  While the clock in your layout isn't actually difficult to read, that's where I applied the shading just to try it out.

I changed the HTML in the Default Property Set of the "clockcentre" cell to:

<div style="border: 2px solid #fff; width: 1px;">
  <div style="height: 150px; width: 500px; position: relative; overflow: hidden">
    <div style="height: 150px; width: 500px; position: relative; overflow: hidden; background-color: #000; filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.BasicImage(opacity=.80); z-index: 9"></div>
    <div style="height: 150px; width: 500px; position: relative; overflow: hidden; top: -150px; text-align: center; z-index: 10">
      <clock alwaysShowHours="false" format="clock">
    </div>
  </div>
</div>


For the "COUNTD" Property Set, it's the same except I changed the background-color style (in the HTML above, not of the cell) to "#fff" (white) and the opacity to .30 instead of .80.  This makes the shaded background lighter which makes the dark blue clock easier to read.

I also removed the border of the cell.  I did this in case the size of any other cell in the same column changes (gets wider) you'll see that the contents of the clockcentre cell will remain at 500 pixels but the border will be wider.  It won't look right.  By using a div with a border surrounding the other HTML, the border will be the size of the contained content regardless of its size.  If another cell in the column gets wider, the clockcentre content will remain the same size.

Anyway, just thought I'd share.

Love the suggestion Corey, The white spark between the purple and blue abstracts does make the text hard to read at points, and this minor change does wonders for the layout as a whole.

Cheers!

Just for the record a copy of the "real" version is now attached for comparisons sake

Question,

How can I apply this to the Blinds/Ante cells?  I have been playing around with it to little avail, as I have little understanding of the HTML code used I can't get it to work, can I apply a similar HTML to the columb properties under HTML Styles?

A little more difficult because you've got that area divided into multiple cells.  Let me see what I can do.

See attached.  I removed the container that had the "blinds text" and "blinds new" and ante cells, and added a new one "Blinds & Ante".  I also applied the semi-transparent background to the clock during breaks and countdown, and changed the "c level green" cell to have the semi-transparent background as well, to be consistent.

That's because I worked on it using my under-development version of 3.2.  I didn't think there were any [significant] changes to the Layout structure, but I guess I've forgotten something.  I've redone it using 3.1.1.

Thanks for the invaluable assistance Corey, I made some (slight) changes to the background opacities and colours and have reposted the layout above

Cheers

Looks good.  Mind if I make a few changes and include it in the next version of the TD software (with credit, of course)?  I'd have to remove the league name and logo, so I understand if you'd rather just have it here as-is for others to download.

FYI in 3.2 there's a "Built-in" button on the Layout tab which gives a more user-friendly way of loading one of the included layouts.

No problem with you using it, after all it's a joint collaboration with your help,  for completeness I attach the Casino Version that I use, which does not inlcude the pointsorient on the prizes area.
