Help with Rebuy Message
« on: May 09, 2014, 03:26:33 PM »
We play a tournament where players can rebuy if they bust out until the end of the 4th round. After that, rebuys are disabled. What I need help with is this: After the 4th round, if I bust out a player that hasn't had a rebuy, I get prompted to see if the player wants to rebuy to keep his seat. Since I already set the rebuy levels to end after 4, shouldn't I never get this prompt later in the tournament?

I am able to disable the prompt after I get it the first time, by selecting the "Don't prompt for rebuys" checkbox, but in my opinion, I should never even see it once we've gone past the 4th level.

Is there any way to address this? I thought about trying to use an event to set the token "RebuysOver" to 1, but I wasn't sure that I could do that via the events, nor was I sure that was the token that needed change.

It should be noted that the software does respect the settings for when the rebuy and/or add-on period is over, but it also allows for overriding those settings.  The prompt you get after the rebuy period is over is different from the prompt you get while the rebuy period is still active.  After the rebuy period is over, the prompt will tell you that the rebuy period is over and confirm that you want to override that setting.

If you are using version 3.3, you can disable the override entirely.  On the Preferences tab, select the Behavior section and then uncheck "Allow override when add-on or rebuy period is over".
