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

- Raise the minimum buyin to 40 BBs.

- Sit out next BIG blind.

- Shift + click a table to join/unjoin various waiting lists.

imo showing the cards when all in @ ring games would be a mistake.

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

I would like a better hand history. Something visual. Sometimes I like to look at the last hand played. I like how it is on Cake, where it gives you a large graphic and timeline (though I'd like it to default to 4 color cards if you already have the option checked). Or at least like FTP where I can see, visually, the cards that everyone had in the last hand.

Also, I'd like the 1/2 pot and pot buttons from FTP to be added. I like the slider on Stars but it would be even better if those 2 buttons were added as well.

And I agree with the people who've already stated to show the cards when all-in. I also agree about a global "sit out" and "I'm back" option so I don't have to select every table when I'm multitabling.

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

[QUOTE=Dilznoofus;2523864]For the No Images Themes, remove player boxes on the empty seats in cash games. Make it like your tournament games. When no one is sitting there, have the player box disappear. So much easier to track the number of players at the table when multitabling.

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.

It would also be good to do this for the avatar-enable tables, though it's not as big a deal on those themes.

Seriously pokerstars, this would be extremely beneficial to a lot of your customers for various different reasons.

Whether it be an auto add on button or just straight up allow you to add on once your table is at the break please, please, please address this issue.

Please go back to an unencrypted gx.ini file for you themes, so we can once again change folnt / colours / control positions etc. Or just provide a de/encode utility like you do for alpha mask bitmaps.

We used to be able to do many awesome things with gx.ini (like change font sizes for tiny tables) - and now it is not possible, and I cannot think of any reason why these files are encrypted.

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

until the games get infested by Romanian/Chinese sweatshops of shortstackers, please please PLEASE don't raise the min buyin

the guys calling for this are professional multi-tablers that are merely trying to increase their edge....
right now, I see nothing positive about increasing the pro players' edge over the rest of the table.

I reserve the right to change this opinion if the sweatshops come into being


ratholing limit change to 2 hours.... not a big deal and wouldn't effect the number of shortstackers per table much, if at all



pro poker players are pretty much shortstacking life, so I find it very ironic they have a problem with shortstackers in their games

Oh, and sort out the joke that is current datamining policy.

Either allow or disallow it, but the current state of not allowed but unpunished does nothing but let the dishonest profit.

This one I think most will agree with and I'm surprised noone's mentioned this already:

PLEASE give us the option to turn the News Pop-up off. Getting that shoved in your face while playing is NOT fun.

Note: I'm not talking about the Announcements at the tables which can already be turned off.

NO bet pot button please, one main attraction of stars for the last few years was that they DID NOT have a bet bot button

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

seriously. wtf is up with that thread-jack?

Well, since he brought it up:
What about all the other semi-smart people who have selfish 'me-first' type jobs who aren't significantly contributing to society?
Or who, some could argue, are even participating more to the detriment of society such as a slimy ambulance-chasing lawyer or something like that?
Do wannabe-actors working as waiters or Starbucks baristas while waiting for their 'big break' really have any ideas about the importance of contributing to society?
They want to be famous and rich. And, until then, trying to pay the bills by serving appetizers and mocha-frappes will have to do.
I guess they are technically 'contributing' by being there to serve someone. But the person who does this typically doesn't care. It's not like they would show up to perform this ultra-important service if they weren't getting paid to do it.

All my other jobs I've ever had I could make some argument about how I was in some small way contributing to society. But that was almost never my reason for doing it.
I accepted and did the job because I selfishly liked doing it and/or I needed the money.

So coming into this thread and poo-poo'ing on pro poker-players on how much they suck seems pointlessly confrontational and kind of petty and stupid.

@PokerStarsJeff

it is alleged (by copy/paste email) you have informed people using PokerOffice to datamine is A-OK, yet other datamining applications are banned.

please clarify this position.

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...18#post2541818

Despite PokerOffice being probably the most lame of tracking applications, should we all be purchasing it so we may legitimately datamine on PokerStars?

Or should us software people be creating applications with a primary function other than datamining so it is OK?

Please resolve this ridiculous situation. Are you seriously posting the official line is if we use a second-rate program to track our play datamining is allowed, yet if we use any of the the market leaders (PokerTracker / Holdem Manager) it is a bannable offense to enhance it with a third party datamining app?

This cannot be serious.

explain pls.

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

I get tired or reading that HH window and trying to figure out who was in the CO, etc.

Have the HH window show a picture of the table, positions and cards.

The autorebuy only works if you bust.

Could we have an auto 100bb top-off option?

Hahahahaha.

Professional poker players aren't hurting anybody. In fact, I specifically know more than one situation where a professional player is now able to contribute more to society because he/she now has excess money/time. This is mostly done through his/her church but also other charitable organizations.

Judging someone's character on the job he or she works is pretty shallow imo, especially in this situation because poker is a legalized, fun form of entertainment.

I'm not quite sure where all of this nonsense is being spouted off from, other than your desire to defend ratholing. But even in that case, almost all players are against shortstackers because they ruin the fun of the game. This is true for bad players, recreational players, amateur players, professional players, winning players, losing players, etc.

I mean, do you seriously only seek out tables that have professional players on them so that you can make their lives more difficult because you don't agree with what they do for a living? No. You can't. You can't because you have absolutely no way of knowing which players are professionals and which are not. But also you can't be that much against pros becuase you ARE ONE!

So if you want to defend the ethics of ratholing, please pursue a different avenue. And stop calling the kettle black.

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

Also, MTTRs arguement is kind of similar to someone saying "Cheating at poker is okay and I do it because I don't think winning players should not be able to win enough money that they don't have to work a job; that would be unethical"

OR a robber who goes around robbing home poker games for the same reason.
