General Discussion / Different buy-ins
« Last post by tjackson8685 on May 31, 2023, 03:13:00 PM »
I run a (big) home game a few times a year where the dealers play and in exchange for dealing they only pay 50% buy-in. So for example if we have 10 tables x 10 players the buy ins total $9,500 (90 x $100 + 10 x $50). To make this work I simply include one  buy-in for every two dealers so when we start it shows as 95 players in the tournament and $9,500 in prize money. Means the average chip count is off a bit but not a big deal. Wondered if there is any way to configure so there are two levels of buy-in one at $100 and one at $50 so it would show 100 players but still only show $9,500 in prize money? Thanks. 
Help Me / points formula help (again)
« Last post by jzallen on May 31, 2023, 11:00:48 AM »
I need help, again, with a points formula.  I can't figure it out

20 players

points as follows
   1st 35
   2nd 29
   3rd 28
   4th 27
   5th 21
   6th 20
   7th 19
   8th 18
   9th 17
   10th 16
   11th 10
   12th 9
   13th 8
   14th 7
   15th 6
   16th 5
   17th 4
   18th 3
   19th 2
   20th 1

Then the tricky part!
whoever knocks out the 20th place player gets 1 bonus point
whoever knocks out the 19th place player gets 2 bonus points (reverse ladder on purpose)
then at the 10 hand final table, all player eliminations are worth 10 points each

can this be done, Corey?
Help Me / Multi Games One Tournament

So we run a first game an d second game during our tournaments. the first or main game is played while our people who go out of the first game can play the second game as a secondary prize. Is there a way to configure and display both the main game and secondary game time clock and stats to display and run at the same time?

Sorry this happened to you!  After looking at your saved tournament, I'm afraid it's exactly as I've seen before in other similar cases.  There's simply no data in that file, and so there's nothing that can be recovered.  Unfortunately you'll probably have to recreate the tournament manually by busting players out in the same order.

My final save file was damaged by a power outage
Could you help me, to get at least the final rankings of the tournament.
It is very important for our season general ranking

thanks in advance

Help Me / Re: Bounty trigger

Unfortunately I don't think you can.  The trigger would need to be "A player busts out", but there's no variable that would allow you to determine that the hitman won a specific prize.  In fact most of the variables apply to the player busting out, not the hitman.  I'll have to look into that to see if/how that can be done.
Help Me / Bounty trigger

We have a bounty on the last game winner. I use the prize tab "bounty on player" dropdown to select the last winner. I would like to trigger an event when that player is knocked out with an announcement that the bounty has been won, is that possible? Is there a trigger for that?
General Discussion / Re: Double Points for the Last Tournament
« Last post by Corey Cooper on May 07, 2023, 05:21:12 PM »
By using the Points for Playing field yes, but not from the Stats tab.  That is, the formulas applied on the Stats tab don't (and can't) distinguish one tournament from another.  To those formulas, all of the tournaments are just sort of in one big bucket and don't really have any order.

But you can accumulate points using the Points for Playing formula on the Game tab instead.  That formula allows you to have a different formula per tournament.  Then you just need to increase or double the points awarded on the final tournament.

Not currently, except on the Player Rankings screen.  It's on my list to extend that to Players, Database, and Stats tabs.
Help Me / Re: exporting Tournament Winners from a specific season
« Last post by Corey Cooper on May 07, 2023, 05:15:32 PM »
Unfortunately I don't think this is possible today.  Handling of multiple tournaments only happens on the Stats tab, and the listing is strictly the list of players found in all of the tournaments.  You'll probably have to generate this list yourself.  If you have a lot of players and/or a lot of tournaments, the easiest way I can think of to do this is to add the "1st" column to the Stats tab (which lists the number of times this player has ranked 1st place), then sort by that column.  If you double-click each player that ranked first and then scroll down to the "Tournaments" section, you can see the rankings the player had at every tournament in which they participated.  It's pretty quick to glance through to find "1st place" rankings.
