sync database and stats
« on: June 13, 2018, 12:51:57 PM »
Hey Corey  :)

Me and a friend want to host 2 different tourneys at the same time, will we be able to sync the database and stats from 2 different computers if we buy a second license?

Depends on what you mean by "sync".  If you simply want to be able to compute stats from both tournaments on one of the PCs, then definitely yes.

Assuming all players (from both tournaments) are in your player database, it's easy.  Just copy the tournament to your PC and run stats.

If your friend's tournament may have players not in your database, copy the tournament to your PC, load the tournament, then go to the Players tab and press the Database button.  Then press the "Add to database players in your current tournament" button.  Then you should be able to run stats and include everyone.

If you want to keep player details (phone number, email address, etc) in sync, that's a lot more difficult.  But the most important information on a player is their unique ID, which allows the TD to correlate players across tournaments.  And the unique ID is stored in the tournament file as well as the database.  So you can effectively "sync" players just using a saved tournament file.

Sharing licenses is not allowed, so sounds like yes.
