wow...
first, i wanna let you know i really appreciate this...


now, as a reply to your post...

Generally, everything you wrote made sense...  but probabbly, cause i am not programer, neither have yet tried and get familiour 100% with your software (and english isnt my first language), I am still confused a bit...

Here is in short what I understood... 

As you said, every player in each tournament get some basic attributes, like buy-in cost, rank, rebuy cost, winnings, hits etc.... So these are attributes which all have some value...

Based on values of those attributes I can create, using formula, a point system for each tournament. For example  "buyin cost"+"rebuy cost"/ "rank", and i can get points for each player for each tournament. In that way, points become one more atribute, or one more value...

Going on stats page I ll be able to see a sum of selected attributes (values) from all played tournaments...

So i ll know, for each player, how much he spent, he won, number of buyins & rebuys, (etc), and how much points he won in all tournaments...


I still dont see any advantage or need of using "overall score"... (I assume i would understand it if you gave some example)
I ll get into it in next few days so I hope i ll understood it better...


One more time, tnx for your effort...

Look in the "Default" filter for an example.  Also see section 19.2.5 in the user manual for an explanation.

Ufff...   i was playing with it now... still confused... but you know what, gimme time, i am sure i ll get it the more i use it...


Untill i get it, i ll need you to guide me a bit...

Here is pts system i wanna use (or score system, doesnt matter 2 me... ), i ve found it on some other forum where people discussed pts ranking method...

player points = sqrt(  ("number of players in tournament" x "buy in") x ("buy in" / "total cost of player")  )     /    ("final place"+1)


If I am right that should be written like this :

sqrt(   (n*bc)x(bc/tc)   )      /     (rank+1)



To use it i write that line in filter under "tournament scoring" and to get complete sum of all pts collected in this way, in overall scoring i put "sum(scores)"...


Right?

Yes, that looks like it would work.

yeah, i figured that out in the meantime...

it should be

sqrt(   (n*bc)*(bc/tc)   )      /     (rank+1)



btw, i am really happy with this formula... try it...

I just tried to export a tournament...  in HTML... I wanted to have all details printed, but i cant find or figure out column that would show how much points player got for that tournament (related to above scoring method)....  "Points" column is blank... (those are i guess those other pts, for which i still dont know what are they used for...)

If you are using the scoring formulas in the Stats filter, a player's overall score will end up in the "Overall Score" column.  There are actually 5 of these columns (labeled "Overall Score", "Overall Score 2", "Overall Score 3", etc), corresponding to the 5 overall score formulas you can create, so it obviously depends on which one you used for your overall score formula.

I entered formula in first one, called "overall score"... 

When I wanna export some tournament, i go load - select saved tournament...  Then on game tab I select export -> HTML...  Then there are 2 lists, list of columns to show, and list of those which i dont wanna to show...  There is no column called "overall score", "score" or anything I could relate to it...

Score and Overall Score are only available when computing statistics.  They are not part of an individual tournament.  So you can only export those values from the Stats tab.
