Hello everyone,

I looked for same topic but couldn't find it.  Can somebody tell me how I can find description file. I explain myself; I'd like to use informations from tournament etc to export into my website. For that I think I'll need the structure of the files. I might be wrong so if somebody has an idea...

thanks !!

The Tournament Director application uses a proprietary file format.  It's basically ECMAscript with a lot of custom objects.  There's no documentation on it.  Sorry.

Any reason you can't use one of the existing export formats? (Game tab -> Export button)

Well I actually try to have live information directly taken in TD. I see I can export with HTML for example so that's fine but I have to export myself. I'd like to know if there is a way to export every x second the html page. thx

There is, actually.  Well, kind of.  On the Preferences tab, select the "Status Updates" category.  The TD can send the current tournament status either to a URL or to a file, at the frequency you specify.  The status is not that complete at the moment, but there are plans to add more information to it.  I just haven't gotten to it, yet.
