modify tournament history
« on: September 19, 2014, 03:44:33 AM »
Hi:

I realized I made a mistake once the tournament was over.  So, after a game over, I was looking to correct my mistakes, which were two.

1.  I busted the players out in the wrong order.
2.  Also, I assigned the wrong hitman to one of the busted out player.

So I tried to go and fix it up by going on the forum and seeking solutions.  One solution that comes often is to go on the player ranking, right click on the player, undo the bust and bust him out again using the correct hitman... Well, that did not go well because now my player's ranking is busted out 4th when he was actually busted out 8th.

Result: many things now lay wrong.  The busted out order is wrong, but also the playing time (I try to correct everything the morning after.  By doing so, the clock was restarted and it now indicated that player has been playing for 14 hours!) 

My stats are now completely messed up.  I thought maybe I could fix everything by modifying the tournament history, but that does not seem possible. 

This is my tournament history:

11:09:20 19/09/2014: Undo of last bust-out for player Sylvain ({2})
11:09:20 19/09/2014: Tournament restarted
11:14:05 19/09/2014: Julie busted out of the tournament (Unseated) by Melissa (Table 1, Seat 3)

What i really want is to undo the last 5 actions above, and correct the order in which Julie, Omar, and Sylvain were taken out.  The problem also is the amount of time the players were in matters in our stats in the long run.

What do I do now?  Please, please help me.  I'm not touching anything until I get help.


Grateful TD Beginner.

Ok, part 2.  I think I am able to recover the game from last night by loading "tournament-20140918.tdt.20140919-091643".

So now, really the problem lies in the 2 original mistakes.  "Julie" was busted out 8th, before Omar (who was busted 7th) and Sylvain (who was busted out 5th).  How do I fix that?

Second, John was not busted out by Chris, but by Sylvain.  How do I fix that as well?

Thank you again, TD community.

No worries, it should be easily fixed.

Quick note: think of the tournament like a Word document or other similar file.  Any changes you make are only made "in memory" and don't persist until you save the tournament.  So, if you've saved the tournament and are editing at afterwards and make a mistake, just don't save it.  Load the tournament again and start over.  Of course, if you have Auto-save enabled then it's likely to get saved automatically (particularly if you have the "Save after significant events" preference enabled).  In that case, your changes are effectively committed (saved) immediately.  This is a great endorsement for enabling the "Create backups when saving tournaments" preference.  Then you can always load one of those backups, just like you were able to do in this case.

So, now that you've undone the mistakes made while trying to correct the original mistakes, here's what to do:

"Julie" was busted out 8th, before Omar (who was busted 7th) and Sylvain (who was busted out 5th).  How do I fix that?

On the Players tab, press the "Adjust Rankings" button.  Use the arrows to place the players into the correct bust-out positions.  This *should* preserve the bust-out times, but you can edit any player on this page and manually adjust their actual bust-out time if necessary.

Second, John was not busted out by Chris, but by Sylvain.  How do I fix that as well?

On the Players tab, edit John.  On the Edit Game Player dialog, scroll to the button until you see the History section.  Look for the bust-out line and double-click it.  Here you can select the correct hitman.

Hi:

Sry for late replyin'.

Of course, it worked and everything is fine now.  You know, I don't know why anyone organizing tournaments would use any other software.  If it's not perfect, it's seriously damn close!

Thx for your help & support & great work TD!
