Version 2.3 is available
« on: June 13, 2007, 05:19:50 PM »
Version 2.3 has been released.  Here are the latest additions (since version 2.3 beta 2):

  • Added "Select Screen #" to <tdbutton>
  • Exports now set charset to UTF-16 or ISO-8859-1, depending on content
  • Added "numberofscores" (or "s") to Overall Scores formulas, representing a player's number of scores/tournaments
  • Added a Reason on the Tournament Info dialog stating the reason a tournament did not pass the filter
  • Receipts weren't generated for:
    • quick buy-in
    • rebuy after bust-out
    • undo buy-in from context menu (right-click) on Players tab
  • <pointsforplaying> token was broken, and missing a number of new attributes
  • An error was displayed if adding players to the tournament from the Tournament page and the preference to 'allow players who had not bought-in to be seated' was enabled
  • For Overall Scoring, "n" is now set to the number of tournament files that passed the filter (was set to the number of tournament files loaded)
  • Creating table names, sound names, or status message set names with some foreign characters could cause an error.  Items on the Layout tab still cannot use foreign characters; to be fixed in a future version

Download it at http://www.thetournamentdirector.net/download.html

Many thanks to everyone who helped to beta test.  Your input and testing were very helpful and are much appreciated.

Hi Corey.  Thanks for the update.  Just a question regarding pointsforplaying

I am trying to setup a screen as follows


1st = 825
2nd = 710
3rd = 650
4th = 500
etc, etc...  till i reach 9th.  Then i want to combine the data since the scores are all the same.  Like this.

9th-12th = 100
13th-16th = 50

i have tried playing with the ranks setting but find it defaults to showing all scores from 1 through whatever you set as the max.
Is thier a way around this to just show one score?  i.e. 12th = 100
Then i could just add (9th-) to the beginning of that line to make it read 9th-12th = 100

That appears to be broken.  Seems like it always interprets the first number as 0, so defaults it to 1, so you always get 1 through whatever the second number is.

I've fixed this, and added a "displayRanks" attribute to turn off the display of the rank next to the points.  Should make it easier to do what you are trying to do.

Corey - the stats seems broken in this one.  My prior stats accurately reflect people's standings (see here: http://tinyurl.com/3xgjcw)

But this one seemed to pile up everyone's winnings on one guy (lucky him), then upon reloading, continued piling on in even a screwier fashion.  (see here: http://tinyurl.com/2oegsu   I can play around with it to try to describe the problem in more detail, or e-mail you the tourney files if you need more to work with.

Cheers, Carl.

Mass Rebuy and add-ons

I see that when in simple mode you can do the mass rebuy's and add-ons but it will not use the seating chart. IT would be nice if that could be in the player track mode as well as a option. The down side of course it will not could in players stats but for example my last tournament I sold 400 re-buys and 66 add - ons.

Yes, I broke the stats with the last minute addition of the numberofscores variable to the Overall Score formula.  I released version 2.3.1 to fix this just a short while ago.

You're awesome, Corey.  I'll use 2.3.1 for a tourney this weekend, but thus far, everything seems to be working perfectly.  Love the new features.

By the way, did you ever implement a way to view cumulative points from the stats tab on the tournament page?  If I recall, someone asked about it, but it looked like there was no practical way to accomplish this with a token.

Cheers, Carl.

Ok, the points for playing is working better now.  However, if you use it more than one time in a cell it will not work.
It seams to remember the settings in the first entry and ignore the new settings in each additional use.

This is the code i used.

<pointsforplaying ranks="1-8">

<br>
9th-12th:
<pointsforplaying ranks="9-9" displayRank="false">

<br>
13th-16th:
<pointsforplaying ranks="13-13" displayRank="false">

<br><br>

Souls = 10 Points<br>Bounty = 25

and i get 3 lists of points for ranks 1-8
can this be fixed or do i need to make 3 diff cells to contain each different part of the list i am trying to make?

Bug, dang it.  It's caching it, but it should be caching it with respect to its unique attributes.  And for pointsforplaying, I omitted using the attributes as part of the caching key.  On the to-do list...

No, haven't done that.  Partly because it's complicated, partly because it wouldn't work unless you ran Stats before the tournament.  That is, it would only have access to the currently generated statistics, so you would have to be sure to run statistics prior to your tournament.  Not a big deal, but undoubtedly it would generate a lot of "it's broken" support requests because of this fact.

Plus, because the stats wouldn't change at all during or even after a tournament (unless you re-ran the stats just after the tournament was over), you can accomplish the same thing by running stats, exporting them to an HTML file, and then including the file in your layout.

I do see the value of doing just that, though: running stats just after the tournament ends and returning to one of the tournament screens and seeing the newly updated stats.  Still on the to-do list...

No, there is no translation of the software at this time.  But the software *could* be translated, as the language files are all now separate from the program itself.  That allows anyone to change the text, without having to actually change the software.

However, language translation is a rather expensive undertaking - most likely well out of the scope of this software to have it professionally done.  Therefore, it is unlikely there will ever be a true translation of the software to any language, unless it is done by users who are simply interested in using it in their native language.

I understand! But now I'm trying to translate from English to Swedish so far it going OK for me. It take while. If i have your (Corey) approval I can release that Swedish language-pack in this forum or my website.

So long as you don't mind submitting the files back to me as well.  I'd be happy to host user-submitted language packs on the Tournament Director website for others to use.
