Re: **OFFICIAL Stars Software Improvement Thread***

You should be able to set the "default" buy-in for whatever game and limit you want to play.

The way it is now if you're playing 8 games you have to manually set the buy-in (if you want it to be less than the maximum or the current default minimum) on every game you join, and this is a royal pain.

How about a "Show and Fold" button, where if you want, you can show your opponents that you're laying down a big hand.

Oh god yes, the one single thing that UB has that is better than other sites.

Even Prima has this, and even though i like their software its definately ghettofabulous (you cant even rebuy your stack properly in a cash game ffs) compared to the swishness of stars software.

Do you mean the pop up when its my action and the one click table activation options.

I cant do without it popping up when i play tonnes of tables because i cascade them - but the one click i could perhaps do without, ill try it on my next session but i can imagine it being frustrating having to click twice on a table just to fold a hand.

Either way, when you have a window open like the reload options thing either the next window shouldnt pop up until you have finished on that window, or it should pop up behind that window so you can see it but the uppermost focus is still the reload box.

Its frustrating, ill try a session without the one click, but whilst probably not a grade A problem i think its still a flaw in the sites usability.

Whoever said that tourneys need better info in the title bar is 100% spot on - i dont need to know what number the tourney is, i need its buy in and name (be it Sit n Go, or Million Gtd MTT, or 45k gtd rebuy etc etc).

Re: **OFFICIAL Stars Software Improvement Thread***

I would like to see something so you can choose to only see the stakes you want to play in thye lobby. Under the "ring game filter" please add a filter for the stakes you want to filter in or out. So under Fixed Limit Hold'em (Low) stakes there would be a filter option for $3/$6, $2/$4, $1/$2 and $0.50/$1 as well as the heads up tables. Thanks .

AUTO ADD-ON FOR TOURNEYS

The 5 minute break will start once hands are complete on all tables. Rebuys are available until then.

Browse internet and play other tables.

Blinds are going up to...

The absolute best feature, and the #1 thing I'd like to have PS do is adopt FTP's variable auto-rebuy function, where you can choose exactly what your default buy-in/rebuy amounts are for both NL and Limit games. In fact, I'd like to see them go 1 step further and get an option that always brings you up to the table max. FT only reloads you if you lose an all-in.
I won't say "never" because never is a long time... but this has actually been implemented internally (about 2 years ago), tested, and then never rolled out because of the server load it creates. It just isn't workable.

The problem is that each little top-up is a database transaction in a heavily used table (cash in/out of players accounts to and from tables). During testing it was discovered that deploying this feature would saturate the database servers with so many tiny top-up transactions that the server would bottleneck -- the database indexes would grow too large to maintain.

If you have a script and are "topping up" via external means, that's fine... but its unlikely that you'll see this built into the PokerStars software as an automatic feature, as nice as it definitely would be.

Re: **OFFICIAL Stars Software Improvement Thread***

Here's my wishlist:
1. Option to set my default buyin for each game level;
2. Wait for BB when joining tables;
3. Don't auto minimize the main lobby when I open a table;
4. Allow multiple table selection when joining waitlists;
5. Sit out next BB;
6. Color coding of opponents;
7. Sit out all tables and I'm back for all tables buttons.

If not that, at least make the empty seat boxes look different from the other player boxes, by darkening them or making them a different color.

FTP uses semi-transparent seats, which if colored black, blend into most multi-tablers dark backgrounds.

Re: **OFFICIAL Stars Software Improvement Thread***

A solution for the "show both players holecards when allin in a cash game"

You obviously know your hole cards, but on YOUR SCREEN ONLY, it will reveal his cards to you, so you see what you are up against. The other players at the table don't see either of your hands until showdown.

Possible?

What about a simple "Rebuy to Maximum" button that will allow us to top-off at any point with only one click?

No,

Just make it like FT and casino. When 2 players are all in, the cards get flipped over.

Ratholers only have to wait 30 minutes before re-joining a table with the minimum buyin.
This is clearly against the code and spirit of the game. You obviously could not do this in a live game repeatedly day in and out without threat of serious bodily injury. Why does stars support unethical behavior?

Timing out last to act should be a check, not a fold
seriously

Dude and I bet you couldn't sit there with complete stats on each of your opponents, and base your decision on them when playing live without getting beat up. In fact many would call this clearly against the spirit of the game. But so many good players benefit from them, that there is no chance it will ever change. Online poker and live poker are different for a ridiculous number of reasons. How can you focus on one reason like the "ratholing" while ignoring all of the huge benefits you get online in other ways.


Despite that I don't even care if they raise it to 60 minutes or something...30 minutes is a bit short, especially for the higher stakes games. IMO the best thing they can do is create a few deep tables, like they did with the 25-50 6 max tables. However it's almost certain these tables won't succeed at the lower limits, as they haven't on any other sites.

Plz to be adding another e-wallet like INSTADEBIT.

Cheques take too long for me to cash in Canada and moneybookers only has 10k/month limit which is rather annoying.

Instadebit would be soooooooooooooooooo nice.

This seems like a great idea. As it is, it's 3 clicks now (4 for that annoying pop-up if you're in the middle of a hand...) which is a pain. I would expect that implementing a 1-click button would increase the number of top-offs, but probably not by enough to strain the server like an automatic option.

Jeff-
but you already have an auto-rebuy function that buys people back in when they bust, to 20BB. Updating this to allow a customizable amount (important for NL games) wouldn't hit that table anymore than it does now, would it?

larger minimum buyins. by far the most frustrating thing is having someone take 20bb from you and running.
