regular sound for when the clock is paused?
« on: November 07, 2006, 09:01:13 PM »
O.K., I usually act as full time dealer for my tournaments.

I have a rather old/slow laptop that I run TD on and some operations (such as busting out a player, or rebuying, etc) can take a bit of time as I wait for the screens to pop-up.

So, I will sometimes pause the clock when I have an interruption (rule query or problem) or when I do some computer manipulations.

Well, I don't always remember to restart the clock.  Usually someone lets me know, but sometime they don't see it and I don't see it.

I know that I can just change the time with some guestimate of how much time has transpired.

But is there any way to have a sound occur regularly, say every 10 seconds, when I have the clock paused?

Something short of playing a really looooong sound file that just has an intermittent beep every 10 seconds or so (This would slow things down further because playing a large sound file seems to bog down the system even more).

Sounds like a feature request.  I'll put it down.

lol, maybe have some voice come on and say "HELLO, ANYBODY THERE?  HEY MORON THE CLOCK IS STILL PAUSED!!"
or just have a sound file of some guy snoring.  "ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ"  lol
