3.4 beta 2
« on: April 14, 2016, 12:41:20 AM »
Version 3.4.b2 is finally ready!  Please try it out and let me know what you think.

FOR ALL OF THOSE EXPERIENCING THE LOAD/SAVE BUTTON ISSUE: This beta version has a built-in replacement dialog for the system file dialog that is not working for some people.  It is designed to automatically detect that the system file dialog fails to open, and fallback on the new built-in replacement dialog.  It's not perfect but I hope it will be a suitable replacement and get those affected by this issue back in business.

Standard beta testing disclaimer:
This is a BETA release of the software.  Beta means I am not aware of any bugs, but I'd like to get some more testing done before an official release.

If you plan to participate in the beta test, backup your data first.  This can never be stated too often.  The TD can do this for you, just press the "Backup" button on the Database tab and check all options.  You should do this whether you try a beta version or not.

Below is the relevant part of the changes.txt file.

Thank you again to everyone who will participate in this test release.  Please post or email any feedback you have.


Edit: 3.4 beta 2 has been superseded by 3.4 beta 3.  See http://www.thetournamentdirector.net/forums/index.php?topic=5231.0

Everything went good last night, other than the black dialog screen/TD freezing. This usually happens about 2hrs into the tourney, last night it happened about 30min in (only once). Usually I can just exit TD and restart, last night I had to CTRL+ALT+DEL to bring up Task Manager to close TD, then restart TD.

Thanks for the update!  Wish I could explain the black screens.  More incentive to get away from IE.

Hi Corey,

Well.. I finally decided to try the beta...

All seemed good right up until TD froze..  :(

The point at which everything just froze was when the "Suggest Player Movement" dialog appeared, the mouse pointer continually changed icon from busy to arrow etc., no dialog buttons were active and the TD application became unresponsive (timer stopped etc) - the only escape was to use task manager and zap the TD process.. then restart and "rebuild" the last state of the tournament  :-X

TD is normally so very reliable.. in the 4 years or so that I've used it, this is the FIRST time it has let me down.

My TD system, is a virtual machine (VMWARE) running Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) with all Microsoft patches up to 23/04/2016.

My observations on v3.4 beta 2:
1) the mouse does seem to change more frequently between pointer and the busy icon and it seems the TD application is "busier" than in previous versions.
2) keyboard actions are occasionally ignored and it sometimes needs a couple of attempts to get things to work (I'm used to typing ahead when buying in players etc.. I can't do this now as I have to wait for dialogs to render and display etc).

Let me know it there's anything evidential I can provide you.. otherwise i'll be returning to v3.3 !!

Reverted back to v3.3, ran a tournament tonight and had no issues.. none of the mouse pointer rapidly changing between icons.. and no lockup. I'll keep you informed of any developments!
Keep up the good work Corey, it is appreciated.  :)

If you get the urge, and have the time, try the beta version again and see if you get the same results.  It would be good to know if the behavior is reproducible.  I appreciate your efforts regardless.
