      Hey, I've installed pokerstrategy.com, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I play NL2 @ Full Tilt and the only thing I can see there is a little black box saying "Stats will be shown once enough hands have been played" or something like that. When I import the hands it says imported: 63 errors: 63 (for example), all the stats/graphs are empty no matter what filters I set. I'm using 0.90 elephant, I believe. (downloaded it from this link: http://static.pokerstrategy.com/software/9/download/setup-elephant-0.90.exe ) My Full tilt poker is in Engllish. I play on a laptop and a pc and the elephant doesn't work on either of those.


      This is the beginning of the error folder:

      I'll try that. I got the link from this stickied topic, so I thought it was the latest version.
      PokerStrategy.com Software


      Edit: Ok, I updated to the newer version as the poster above me suggested and there's no improvement. Any other thoughts?

      Hey Tscek,

      are you sure you updated to version 0.96?

      The problem with FullTilt Poker (ET Time) is fixed already.

      Hello,

      I have the same issue as the OP. Elephant doesn't do anything, all I get is errors when importing hands. For every hand imported there is an error.

      Where is the link to download version 0.96? When I go into the area of PokerStrategy with different software downloads, the most recent downloads of Elephant are 0.88 and 0.90. Where is 0.96? Ah, I found the link above. Downloading now and will install...

      I installed the version at the link which is 0.95xxxxxxxx and it doesn't work despite reseting defaults. Is this perhaps because I have everything installed on the D: Partition? Argh... 7-8 hours spent reinstalling, gone forever...

      Everything works nicely now.
      I have one more question: Is there a way to merge stats from two computers?

      Hey,

      I'm glad everything is working correctly now. There is no way you can merge two databases. You have to import each and every handhistory file to your database.

      What was the solution for you to get it working?

      hi,

      had the same problem with full tilt hands import

      i solved it by changing time zone in full tilt software to ET (Eastern Time).


      hope it helps :)

      Hi, I had the same problem with 0.90 version, I deleted it and installed 0.96 (twice), but it is even worse - the HUD in Fulltilt continuously shows "stats will be displayed once you have played enough hands" or similar, and moreover it is impossible to run the program as such - it only creates an icon on the tray, but that's all. I have Win 7. Any suggestions?

      Are you kidding me? This should fix everyone's problems? Wow! I'm scared to try again though as I have spent so many hours on this already and I can't handle more frustration. I have been using Hold'em Profiler while waiting for Elephant to leave Beta.

      No response from you guys.

      Pretty much what I expected.

      I filled out the template and you just deleted it without responding.

      I tried to get help but you just ignored me.

      I WAITED AND COLLECTED POINTS SO I COULD USE ELEPHANT BUT YOU REFUSE TO SUPPORT IT.
