      Hey, so recently moved from ipoker to partypoker, and i wanna remove me old database, or if not create a new databse that i can use primarily for party as i wont be using ipoker anymore.

      Thought i best create a thread before i start doing things not really knowing what im doing so i dont mess anything up.

      Thanks in advance

      Hey keoghh,

      just open up the databasemanagement screen and create a new database.

      Make sure your iPoker auto import folders are deactivatet beforehand if you don't want to deal with iPoker handhistories in your new database.
      To do this, select each entry in PokerStrategy.com Elephants configuration and deactivate it by pressing the button "User folder".

      After creating your new database you can delete your old one via the databasemanagement screen.

      Hmm, doesnt seem to be letting me create a new databse, would clicking empty databse in database management do the same job as wat im wanting to do?

      Alright - check the configuration for the correct path to your PartyPoker handhistory folder.

      Now check the PartyPoker client to make sure the handhistories are saved locally.

      Finaly, play some hands and keep an eye on the import. You hands should be imported automatically without any errors since you are already using the latest version.

      Changed the hand history to be saved locally.

      What should the import path look like for party?

      Think i selected the right path but its still not importing hands and the HUD still isnt working, it says "Stats will appear as soon as you have played enough hands at this table", but never actually shows up.

      EDIT: Take that all back, seems to be working fine now, just a slightly longer delay than im used to for the HUD to show up and for hands to be imported. seems i was abit to eager to post lol :)
