Changing the name of prizes?
« on: December 20, 2013, 08:08:39 PM »
Anyone able to help me with this- it seems simple but I'm struggling to do it!
All I want to do is change the name of the prizes from '1st Place' (etc) to just '1st, 2nd' etc. I can do it by adjusting it in the edit screen every time but that's a PITA; if I just put '1st' etc I can fit the player name next to the prize when they're eliminated but if the 'place' remains then some names go off screen. I'd like to be able to save the prize names as just numbers; seems like it should be simple but I can't find the template to edit.
Any ideas?
Cheers,
Paul

The way I did it, was to have all the prizes - eg "4 places" all saved as separate files, the same way you do with CRM, then I just load the prizes file I want, takes about 30 mins to setup all your files, in fact scrub that I'll email mine to you and then you can take it from there!

Thanks for that Stu; just wondered if I could edit the name of the prizes; I like to use the automatic suggestions as I've already edited the xml file to reflect our payouts based on the size of the field. It would be perfect if I could just eliminate the word 'place' from the prize as it adds new ones.

There are 2 ways to do this.  If you're already using Automatic Prizes, then you should probably just use that method.  Every <prize> element can also have a name attribute, like this:

<prize rank="1" name="1st Place" percent="100" />

Just change it to:

<prize rank="1" name="1st" percent="100" />

The other way involves modifying the language catalogs.  It's a little less conventional and generally I wouldn't recommend it, mainly because it means creating your own language catalog or risk losing your changes when you upgrade the software if you modify the included language catalog.

Hi Corey, thanks for the tip but I tried altering the 'automatic prize suggestions' file exactly as you suggested but it still displays as '1st Place' rather than '1st'- is there something else I need to alter as well? It's just annoying, not insurmountable, but it would make it display so much better (and my life easier!) if I could eliminate the word 'Place'.
Cheers,

I just tried it with version 3.3 (beta) and version 2.5.14.  It works.  Are you sure the TD is using the automatic prizes configuration file you think it's using?

It's OK when there are only two prizes, but reverts when there are three or more. I can't see what else I need to change in the config file to read as just the number; tbh I'm a bit of a newbie altering these files so it's probably something obvious I've overlooked!

I have a fairly decent replica of the WSOP 2011 main screen where I would like to match the prizes display e.g. 1st............$XX,XXX,XXX, 2nd.............$XX,XXX,XXX and so on. I've edited the autoPrizes file so the prize name(s) are 1st...., etc. However TD displays them as 1st....: $XXX. Is there a way to remove the : and space at the end of the prize display?
If it ain't naked, deep-fried or poker-related, I ain't interested!
