Help Me / Can you use TD to run a progressive bounty tournament
« on: June 19, 2012, 05:37:30 AM »
If i wanted to run a bounty game where you cash half the bounty and the other half goes back on your own head, is this possible to track with TD ??
I played a similar game recently and enjoyed it, was just wondering if i could emulate it with the help of TD to run my own.

Help Me / Help with alerting players to breaks
« on: June 18, 2012, 02:28:46 PM »
Hiya folks

I have setup a tournament with a break set after round 4, 8 & 12
I have a event set alerting the players to the upcoming break around 7 secs at the end of these levels. But for some reason i'm getting the alert at the end of all levels, even the end of the breaks is informing the players there's another break coming lol

What formula do i need to insert to get this working right.
I just need this alert to fire 7 sec's before each of the above rounds end and thats it.

Help Me / Help with formatiing & fitting cells
« on: February 03, 2012, 08:27:57 AM »
Hiya folks

I have been at this for days now and i still can't seem to get this right. I have a EPL background from Hally which i have edited slightly for my own taste, but i've having a nightmare getting the cells lined up and in place. It seems i line one up perfectly then i edit the next one and it knocks others out of place.
If anyone has a better knowledge of this formatting and would do me a quick favour of having a go at setting the cells up, it would be greatly appreciated.

I have the background & the cells in place, i just need them put in the right location regarding the background.
Any help would be very helpful

Help Me / Break screen not showing
« on: January 28, 2012, 09:42:26 AM »
I have no idea what i have done here, i'm been messing with layouts, spacing, padding all day on my main screen and finally got it within where i want it.
My pre screen is setup, my main screen is setup....i have a break screen setup but when the tournament comes around to the break it's not displaying it.

It stays on the main tournament screen and all the text moves to different places on the page. If i go to the layout tab i have a break screen ready to go in there all setup....why isn't it using it for my breaks ??

Something simple i know but after spending hours on spacing & editing columns & rows my brain has melted i think.
So how do i get my tournament to use my break template please....cheers

Not sure if there is one on the forums but i can't seem to find it if there is but, is there a tut on layout's and aligning cell's on a layout.
I have just spent the last 3 hours trying to align all the correct cells within Hally's EPL layout.
I'm using padding & height, and creating new cells as padding but everytime i align one cell it pushes another out, i have no idea if i'm doing this correct. How does everyone else format their cells to align on a background pic ??

Any advice would be very appreciated as i'm getting nowhere fast here.

General Discussion / Bounty Chips
« on: January 25, 2012, 08:00:08 PM »
Does anyone know of anywhere in the UK to get some decent bounty chips for a upcoming tournament. ???
I've been all over the net and all the decent one's seem to be USA based, I did find the odd site with some but i'm not paying 3 a chip.
I need around 50, although i do have a friend going to Vegas Sat but they have no idea what a bounty chip most of the casino's sell them over there...easy to find if you see what i mean.

Any help would be appreciated

Help Me / Scrolling prize's on main screen & pre screen
« on: January 24, 2012, 05:49:18 AM »
As the title suggests how do i get the prizes to scroll across the main & pre screen. I have one of these setup for one of my other layouts for our league game where it scrolls the points up for grabs on that nights game

<marquee>Final Table Points Available Tonight...........<pointsforplaying ranks="1-10" displayRank="true" orient="horizontal">

I want to show top 6 (maybe 8) prize's so what do i need to change to go from the points to the prize's.

Help Me / Stats page
« on: May 29, 2011, 07:32:13 AM »
Sorry for all thse questions lately, i just thought it was about time to use this software to it's potential....i just have no idea how to do most of it  ;D

As we run a 12 week league, i am constantly using the stats page to show the players where they stand in the leaderboard & any other useful stats they require. What i'm wondering is can the stats page be shown as a screen set like the table, player ranking etc etc pages and if so how do i add this into my tournament, say.....every 5 mins the current leaderboard pops up during the main game for 15 secs.

Help Me / Final Table Pic Size
« on: May 28, 2011, 05:54:31 AM »
Is there anyway to make the final table pic bigger than the normal table pics ??. I normally start with 3/4 tables in a tournament, but when i get down to a final table i would like the table to be a bigger this possible

Help Me / A quick question on points & prize's
« on: May 27, 2011, 04:48:09 PM »
Ok after using the same template for ages i'm dabbling with different styles & setups.
My players not only win cash but also acquire points as part of a league, i already have the working formula for the points

 ((n+1-r)* 40)  + switch(r, 1, 150, 2, 100, 3, 75, 4, 50, 5, 25, 6, 10)*10

Which gives each player 40 points per player knocked out & top 6 get bonus points. This obviously automatically works out the final scores & points awarded for a end of tournament results page.
What i'm wondering is, can i setup the prize's for top 6 to automatically work out the points they will acquire depending on how many entries we get so if i add a prize section to my main template, it will show the top 6 prizes & what points they will get if they place in the top 6. This won't be the same week in week out as it all depends on how many players we get on the night, so it's not something i can insert myself.

I'm not sure if i'm explaining this clearly enough lol

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Table pics advice
« on: May 24, 2011, 09:20:52 PM »
I have just setup some custom table's in TD using Hally's table templates. I have added a logo to the middle of the tables and all works fine. What i seem to have a issue with is the table names in TD. They appear right across the logo in the middle of the table, can these be removed, or moved as there is no point me having logo's on tables if it says Table 1 right across the middle of it. I can modify the table templates to add the table name/number myself, so if the TD ones can be removed that would be great.

Any advice on how to tackle this would be appreciated

Help Me / 500+ player tournament ran by TD
« on: March 16, 2009, 07:49:34 AM »
I have been asked to help run a 500+ 3 day poker event and they are planning on using TD i hear. I have never used TD to this scale, probally 40 - 50 players max normally. I have no doubt i can handle this amount of players, but my question is can TD handle this amount of players.
I heard off a friend that they ran a 300 player game with TD and after knocking around 100 players out, TD started to slow down and struggle getting a 10-15 sec pause & freeze whenever you did any action with TD, getting worse the more player you knock out. Ended up having a 40 - 50 sec pause whenever doing a action with TD.
Now i have nbo idea on what hardware they were running TD on at the time, and was wondering if TD can handle this amount of players on a decent laptop. Or is this slowdown issue a common fault due to the pure amount of information TD is moving around with 300+ players.

Any advice would be appreciated

General Discussion / Help with excel formula's
« on: February 20, 2009, 06:04:51 AM »
Not sure if anyone can help here, but i seem to be going round in circles here and getting  nowhere fast
What i'm looking at is setting up a poker league that runs for the whole of the year, around 46-48 games in the year.
So i'm working on a excel (2007) leaderboard that works all this out for me.


Only there top 20 scores will count towards the leader board
I have sheet 1 setup with all the weeks and the names of the players, so i can enter this information as we go, and on sheet 2 i have a simple table with player name, games played, average points & total points

What i need is working formula's for

1 - games played
2 - average score (based on there top 20 score's)
3 - total points (working from just there top 20 results)

If it was a simple league with all the points being counted it would be easy, but i need to make it there best 20 scores out of all the games they play, due to the league running for a year and ppl missing games, for holidays & other occassions

If anyone can help it would be most appreciated and can either email me direct at or on here
