3.4 beta 3

Corey Cooper:
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.

Edit: version 3.4 beta 3 has been superceded by version 3.4 (final).  See

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

Corey Cooper:
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)?

Corey Cooper:
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.
