Help Me / Re: Tutorial

Not that I am aware of.  That someone should be me but I'm no good with writing/recording that type of thing.

Help Me / Re: Issue validating my license
« on: September 16, 2022, 03:08:51 PM »
Wiping your device will result in the TD and the licensing server seeing it as a new device.  If you've installed your personal license on 3 PCs and you didn't explicitly remove the license from any of them, then when you try to use it on your freshly wiped device it will be seen as PC number 4 and won't work.  The solution is to either (a) remove the license from your other PC(s) or (b) email support@thetournamentdirector.net and I can look into it.

To remove your license, press the Register button on the Game tab and then press the Remove License button.

Help Me / Re: Como Adicionar Rebuy Duplo
« on: September 10, 2022, 04:44:22 PM »
If your tournament has a "double rebuy", which I guess means basically buying two rebuys at once which gives you twice the chips at twice the cost, and you want to display that cost, you can use the following in your cell:

<expression text="defaultRebuyFee * 2">

or

<expression text="defaultRebuyFee * 2" format="money">

... to format the number as money.

Help Me / Re: Tradução Português
« on: September 10, 2022, 04:25:58 PM »
There are no "official" translations of the software.  All translations have been contributed by users of the software.  Anybody can translate it.  It's actually a pretty simple process, but there is a lot of text to translate.  So definitely it's possible, but I cannot say if a Portuguese translation will ever be available.

Help Me / Re: Prizes amount help
« on: September 10, 2022, 04:21:53 PM »
This is not possible on the Prizes tab.  On the Prizes tab, prizes will be displayed with their actual, full amount.  If however you wish to round the prizes in the Game window which is displayed to your players, that can be done.  You'll need to make a small change to the layout.  On the Layout tab, double-click the "Prizes" cell.  The "Contents" section should have a value like this:

<prizes orient="horizontal">

Just change it to:

<prizes orient="horizontal" roundOff="true">

After you make that change, click the link below the Contents that says "Copy contents to all property sets".  This will make sure the change is made for both odd and even rounds.

Templates, Layouts and Sounds / Re: how to set up sound for break
« on: August 27, 2022, 03:02:30 PM »
Can you please walk me through how to add sound for break, final table, new level and start of tournament?

For an event that fires when a new level (I assume a new round) starts, create a new event from scratch, select A level starts for Trigger and set Conditions to isRound.

For an event that fires when a break starts, create a new event from scratch, select A level starts for Trigger and set Conditions to isBreak.

For an event that fires when the final table has been reached, select Tables are consolidated (removed from play) by a player movement suggestion that is accepted for Trigger and set Conditions to tablesLeft = 1.

For an event that fires when the tournament starts, create a new event from scratch, select The tournament starts for Trigger and leave the Conditions blank.

Yes, version 3.7 was the first version to use Electron.  So the cross-platform ability is now here.  It's up to me to make it happen.

Help Me / Re: Move Game Window to monitor 2
« on: August 21, 2022, 02:45:49 PM »
Also, F11 is a hotkey for full screen/window mode, just like in your browser.  The Settings window must be closed to use it.  I tried allowing it while the Settings window was open but it caused some weird window/modal issues, so you can only use it when the Settings window is closed.

Help Me / Re: Hand for Hand Clock run off
« on: August 20, 2022, 07:15:02 PM »
I think you're looking for a way to, for example, assign a hotkey that adds/subtracts time from the clock, and unfortunately that doesn't exist.  But it could.  I'll put something on my list.

General Discussion / Re: Mobile BarCode Scanning
« on: August 20, 2022, 07:13:18 PM »
I definitely have not done this, but what would be different from having a printed barcode?  Most scanners, with the proper lighting/brightness, should be able to scan a barcode on a screen as well as a printed barcode.

Well, I had a long reply written up for this and my login timed out and I lost it all.  So then, briefly, I'm still excited about creating those versions, but the reality of my full-time job having gotten much more demanding, as well as some of the other barriers like the fact that I don't own a Mac (and haven't even used one in many, many years), as well as the difficulty of publishing applications for Macs (not to mention cost, which is a significant factor for small developers like myself).  Linux probably wouldn't be too difficult, as I could install Ubuntu or another distro in a VM and work through that, but I think aside from a handful of folks who would really like a Linux version, the demand isn't very high (especially compared to Windows and Mac versions).  Short story even shorter: I still want to, but I still don't have a timetable.

Everything is great!  Thanks for asking.  How about you?

True, things in the forums have been slower lately.  Maybe most of the questions of simply been asked at this point?  :)

Help Me / Re: Getting rid of pre tourney banners
« on: August 05, 2022, 12:18:39 PM »
Right-click on the message, select the top option Disable Status Messages.

Want to keep some but not all?  Or change their appearance?  Or the text?   Settings window -> Preferences tab -> Status Messages button.

Suggestions / Re: Buy in Profiles in Simple Mode
« on: July 14, 2022, 04:23:00 PM »
Would a better option (or at least a good-enough option) be to use Tracking Mode and don't bother with player details when you buy players in or bust players out?  You can always turn off player movement suggestions, and warnings about players not being seated, etc.

Help Me / Re: Screen scroll
« on: June 22, 2022, 06:04:39 PM »
The built-in screens will only scroll if their content won't fit on the screen.  Are you saying 10 tables fit but you've got more tables configured?

As for automatic scrolling, it's either on or it's off.  And it only scrolls if it can scroll.  That is, if the content is taller than the screen.  You can't configure it to only scroll if the content is too tall AND some other condition (you have more than 10 tables).
