      HUD Settings -> Site Options -> Seats: [x] By # players

      I would like to use this setting so that the selected HUD changes based on the number of players in the previous hand. Selecting this option though, I am never asked for how many players... How do I indicate to use 'X' HUD for X # of players, and 'Y' HUD for Y # of players?

      Please note that I am not asking about filtering stats based on # of players, I want to change the HUD appearance based on the number of players.

      I could not find the solution in the software, online FAQ, or elsewhere - I sent a request through the support tool - but got no confirmation that the request was received. Decided to try here, since response has been pretty good so far with other recent minor issue.

      So I got an e-mail back from support. You cannot specify the # of players at this time.

      After playing around with it a bit more though, I discovered that if you select it you can then use the drop-down and select the table size (full-ring, 6-max, and HU) to assign a different HUD at each of these levels. So starting a full-ring game - use HUD A, when down to 6-players - use HUD B, and when down to HU play - use HUD C.

      What I'm not sure of is why if it recognizes when you reach 6 or 2 players, it could not recognize when you are at any number of players 9 through 2? This would be a great feature to add!

      This could be done by:
      gooogle: c++ hello world download.

      After you have created a program that can say hello world, u can go into more advanced things like making auto changes in settings.

      But unless u are very stupporn, the easiest thing would be to beg them to implement it.

      To be honest it wouldnt be that hard. All you have to do is make sure to open tracker software in admin. So that the program that has easy code like...:

      if amt (pokerplayers) < 6 use HUD1

      ... Has the, clearance if u may, to go change settings in another program. (Like PT4, HM2)
      Unless its encrypted in some sort (the logon to postgres etc) Which i honestly dont know if it is. Because if it is, then beg hard so they make it. Because its a fine idea.

      Very usefull if u play lets say 16 tables fullring sng

      Good thinking.

      Go ahead and make it :D

      Got another response from them on this. If there is enough demand, they will look at implementing it.

      I believe the level of effort would be fairly minor as it already works when transitioning to 6 or 2 players... It would just require adding a few selections to the drop-down and a bit of code tweaking to look for the other scenarios (i.e. 8-handed, 7-handed, etc...)

      So go, go, go... please fill this thread up with requests!
