3.4 beta 3
« on: March 09, 2017, 11:11:35 PM »
At long last version 3.4 beta 3 is ready.  The change list isn't huge, but the amount of work that went into making some of those changes happen was enormous.

Once again I would encourage everyone to give it a try.  Your feedback is extremely helpful.  In fact, just using the software, feedback or not, is very helpful in gauging the stability and robustness of the release.  Thank you in advance for your efforts!

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.

Hi Corey,
With this beta, TD does not launch when I double click on a tournament file (.tdt). And I have a notes field for the rounds but there isn't an option to display those notes on the rounds screen
Thanks

Thanks for the heads-up Jody.  The launcher did have to change, and honestly I didn't test launching the application by double-clicking a tournament file, probably because that functionality should have remained unchanged.  I'll look into it.

The notes can be displayed on the Rounds tab of the Settings window and in the Blinds Schedule screen in the Game window.  You just need to edit the columns and add the Notes column.  They aren't displayed by default.

On the Rounds tab of the Settings window, press the Preferences button then the Edit Columns button.  For the Blinds Schedule screen, edit the screen properties by pressing the Properties button in the Screen Controls section of the Layout tab.  Then press the Edit Columns button.

OK I feel like an a$$. I saw it too, but was thinking of something else.

Is there a way to remove all the excess Limit 1, 2, 3 etc from the New rounds dialog (items not needed/used)?

Nope, not at this time, but it's certainly worth reviewing.  I could make it more like the Game Player dialog, where it would have a checkbox for toggling between showing all fields and showing only those fields shown on the Rounds tab.

Looks like you changed the html formatting for stats export? Or am I missing a setting?

No, I don't recall changing the formatting for any exports.  What I did change was the header of each export.  But that shouldn't have changed the formatting.  What are you seeing?

Differences report attached. The one on the left is the beta2 export, one on the right beta3. Not a big deal, I just didn't see anything about it in the release notes... I should have modified the template for my own use instead of being lazy and formatting the page after export! I've also attached the results using both versions. They are definitely different, and it affects my league's webpage format... again, not asking for a change; it just caught me off guard.

Great data.  Thank you for including that.  So helpful.

After looking at it, I think the changes fall into these categories:

- Changes to support player images.  Mostly this is the code for sorting players.  Nothing really visible.

- Structural changes in the body of the page.  These are equivalent changes, meaning although the HTML code changed, the output should really be no different than it was before.  The page is using a series of HTML <div> elements instead of HTML <table>s.

- Header changes.  The header of the page looks different, yes, but this doesn't affect the list of players.

- Font, font size, and line spacing.  The font was changed from Tahoma to Segoe UI, since that change was made in the application itself (in beta 2 I believe).  Also, the exports now use the same font size as is used in the application (since it is now user modifiable).  Additionally, the new line spacing preference used in the application (also user modifiable) is respected by the exports.  This is likely the change that is most noticeable.

Don't forget that whether or not you want your export to use these changes is entirely up to you.  You can make copies of the template and modify them to your heart's content.  But yes, the default export templates changed, and if you modified the supplied templates (without copying them or renaming them) then they'll be written over by the new ones.

Thanks for pointing this out.  I'll try to include this in the final release notes.

My TD is crashing very often since the update. My extended display also turns black. Here is a screencap of my main and extended display. Note the TD icon below.

Sounds like the same issue a few others have experienced with previous versions.  I would venture to guess it isn't directly related to the new version, but I suppose if it is I might have a better chance of tracking it down.

It might be interesting to see how big the mshta.exe process has grown when you experience this issue.  I was hoping it was related to a memory leak and that this release might help contain it with the memory leak I found and fixed.

I think I was around 450,000kb when it froze the last time. I just took a screenshot with the memory usage pretty high and TD is still working fine. By the way, one of my screens does have a swf file (flash) embedded in it. The screen runs for 10 seconds before transitioning to other screens

400MB is high, but not too crazy, relative to previous versions.  However, in my testing of beta 3 I had the layout changing screens every 3 seconds, and 24 hours later it still hadn't gone over 400MB.  So that sounds a little high to me.  900+MB is huge, and I'm not sure how it could even get that big.

By the way, one of my screens does have a swf file (flash) embedded in it. The screen runs for 10 seconds before transitioning to other screens

Maybe that is part of the issue?  You could try removing the flash from the screen and running for a while to see if the memory growth is similar.
