re: AJacksonAdvantage NoteCaddy HUD

I'm no hardware expert, but from experience I know HM2 and NoteCaddy perform much better with Intel than AMD CPU's. This is the reason we've left "or AMD equivalent" out of the advised system specs for AJA Dynamic.

If performance bothers you and you've done the steps in the Performance Guide know you can always switch to the Premium pack, which was made because many PC's don't meet the advised system specs of the Dynamic pack. Switching is free with AJA Dynamic 100NL or above, if you own AJA Dynamic 25NL or 50NL you only pay the difference when switching to Premium.

It does it even with the vanilla HUD. The dynamic HUD doesn't seem to make much difference, though if I can get the popups to fire instantly, that would be great.

(Love your HUD though - even though I probably am only using a fraction of its data.)

re: AJacksonAdvantage NoteCaddy HUD

i7-4700 with 16GB of RAM and 2 SSDs.

Everything runs smoothly (dynamic package). I also did all the performance tweaks suggested in the documentation and have the OS on one and the Database on the other drive.

I guess CPU speed is pretty important when it comes to note creation (you can check that by running the performance tab when hitting ctrl+alt+del. The drain on the CPU can be very high due to the large amount of notecaddy definitions). You can get a good house number of your CPUs performance by looking it up in the following chart: http://www.cpubenchmark.net/high_end_cpus.html . The above i7-4700 scored just under 8000, everything close to that should be no problems, for intel CPUs that is).

Yep guys, I can 100% confirm that an AMD system wont be able to run the Dynamic package, this comes from my own recent experience.

I ran an AMD8350 heavily overclocked on watercooled system and although the actual HUD ran fine, the popups were laggy and unusable. I then upgraded to an i7 3770k (about a month ago) and it works like a charm even when not overclocked.

Oh and b4 anyone asks, yes AMD just released a new processor called the 9590 and although ive not run one I can tell you it still wont cut it in terms of power as they are just previous gen 8350's that were cherry picked and factory overclocked (google cpu binning for more details on how that works).

If any of you want any hardware/computer advice dont hesitate to ask, Im happy to help.

Vanilla HUD A basic HUD having problems on your PC makes me think something isn't configured correctly. I'm happy to take a look if you contact me @ Skype to see if that can be solved.

Husker's way of creating notes will likely improve pop-up speed. The Premium pack would improve that as well. But it's your choice if you want to give up the advantages of the Dynamic pack to have quicker popups obviously.

Thanks for the assist on Skype. I didn't realize that there are actually two HM2 databases. The first is one created by HM2 in the location you tell it (which for me was on the SSD) and the other goes wherever Postgres happens to me (which for me was not on the SSD).

Reinstalling Postgres onto the SSD sped things up a fair amount, but didn't completely solve the problem. HM2 still lags things significantly on my system.

Playable now at least though.

I am very excited to try the MTT hud. I know you guys have been working on it for awhile now. Is there any MTT experience on your team that you feel contributed towards the development?

That's a good question SretiCentV! It's been made together with a good MTT player who had quite a bit of NoteCaddy experience himself. It looks and works pretty similar to our cashgame HUD, but there's much more attention to preflop spots with different stacksizes and less on postflop spots that require a big sample-size for the stats to be usable.

Currently it's ~bug-free, but feedback on design is still very much welcome. A shame it doesn't work on playmoney tournaments or you've could have tried it yourself.

re: AJacksonAdvantage NoteCaddy HUD

I am quite sure I can get it to work with play money. I have considerable experience with computer hardware as well as computer software. Play money is the purest form of poker in that we're not inhibited worrying about money. It is a real game of skill and a competition of the minds.

re: AJacksonAdvantage NoteCaddy HUD

I already have Notecaddy edge and Notecaddy advantage along with other custom stats. Besides from the sizing tells, what is there in this package that can benefit me ?

Also, is nilay still working on this and is he still handling support ? He basically gave me definitions that didn't work twice in a row and I'd like to know I'm getting reliable support if I purchase this.

I have 8GB RAM and a i5-3570 @ 3.4Ghz and an SSD. Would have any more RAM help speed up the process of creating notes ? It's so cheap anyway that if it helps a bit I wouldn't mind buying some more although if it doesn't do anything then obviously no point.

If you own NCA we offer a free copy of AJA at the same stake. We send emails about this and it was mentioned in a previous version of the OP ITT, but you probably missed those. Shoot us an e-mail @ aja [at] notecaddy.com or contact us at Skype @ AJacksonAdvantage and we'll send it to you.

The Dynamic Package offers 2 big advantages over other packages.

- It has dynamic stats, ranges, and badges. Dynamic means that the type of values displayed change to always offer the most reliable data. As an example, let’s say a player has had the opportunity to c-bet 100 times vs a Hero, then the HUD will only show that % because the sample-size is reliable enough and that data is more relevant that how the player plays vs everyone.

- Our badges use data from multiple stats to indicate a player’s exploitabilities. Other HUDs will tell you when a players fold vs a 3-bet or c-bet to much, but don’t combine that data. The advantage of our system is that you can find profitable spots that often aren’t obvious when looking at stats and making quick decisions. Take a player that folds a lot vs 2-barrels in a 3-bet pot, when he isn’t 4-betting or raising c-bets a lot just the high fold-% vs. the 2-barrels can make the 3-bet on itself profitable which the AJA HUD will indicate. It would often be impossible to quickly analyze all the stats to come to this same conclusion in-game.

The differences just mentioned are unique to AJA. Of course we also feel our HUD is better thought out and more intuitive. But that's a personal preference and other pack authors probably find this equally true about their own pack.

Quote:

No and no. Nilay isn't involved in anything.

Up to 16GB is definitly usefull. And as you mentioned the price is cheap, so it's pretty much a no-brainer. Do make sure the new RAM has at least the frequency of the old RAM.

Let me know when there's anything else.

re: AJacksonAdvantage NoteCaddy HUD

Hey, you mentionned this in the OP :

Quote:
Because of the number of internal calculations and the nature of Zoom type games the Dynamic HUD regularly has performance issues with huge (1kk+) databases. We recommend our Premium package in that case.
Is this 1M+ hands i bolded ? How common are the problems for databases of 1M hands ?
I have 16GB RAM and a i5-3570 @ 3.4Ghz and an SSD and play mostly Zoom. I know you can't give me an exact answer for this, but what is the biggest database I can have while not having any issues with performance ? Thanks

re: AJacksonAdvantage NoteCaddy HUD

1kk = 1M indeed. There are many variables (# of hands on individual players, PC, # of tables, other programs running) so it's tough to give an exact limit. 1M is definitely on the safe side and mentioned mainly to make clear we can't guarantee it works with a bigger DB when playing Zoom. Also it's intended for the minimum advised system, while yours is better.

There are ppl using the Dynamic Package on Zoom with 5M+ DB's without any issue. When you're OK with turning off note creation in-game there's probably no limit at all. This would mean the data doesn't update with the hands from the current session, but with a huge DB those few hands are irrelevant most of the time anyway.

We offer a 15-day no questions asked refund policy, so in case it wouldn't work out you could always cancel your purchase after having given it a try.

Let me know when you've got any other question.

re: AJacksonAdvantage NoteCaddy HUD

I have to say though, the combination of performance issues with large databases and the fact that most specific stats and special information in the package require very large sample sizes, makes it somewhat of a product that works against itself in a way? Seems to me the problems it solves, the additional usefull information it provides only becomes reliable when the user starts experiencing performance issues.

re: AJacksonAdvantage NoteCaddy HUD

Not sure if you're a user of the package. If so, please contact us via e-mail or Skype because I'm not aware of any unsolved performance issues.

Quote:
performance issues with large databases
Performance issues with large databases do happen, but they are either explained by having a PC that doesn't meet the advised minimum specs or they can be solved by optimizing settings.

Quote:
most specific stats and special information in the package require very large sample sizes
The HUD doesn't need large sample sizes, but the data shown does improve when having large samples. The sample needed for Dynamic stats to be effective varies a lot depending on the stat. For fold BB v BTN to show data vsReg or vsHero the needed sample definitely isn't huge, but for more specific postflop stats the needed sample for that to happen is obviously bigger. For badges only a small sample is needed to take into account vsHero data. Take the 3Bet BB v SB badge i.e. If someone RFI's SB and folds vs a BB 3Bet 14 out of 20 times a badge will indicate that move is likely to be profitable. If said player didn't fold vs a BB 3Bet from Hero 5 out of 5 times that badge won't show. That's a sample that can be reached in a single session.

Quote:
the additional usefull information it provides only becomes reliable
That probably refers to the vsReg and vsHero data that is used. This data only shows when it's sample is reliable, so the way you mention it is impossible. Either it doesn't show or it shows, but when it shows it has a reliable sample.

Quote:
the user starts experiencing performance issues
Not sure how you came to the conclusion that a user will inevitably experience performance issues. Many user don't experience performance issues at all even with DB's of 10KK+ hands. If they do they need to either upgrade their PC or optimize their settings. A settings guide is provided with the package and in case problems occur support for changing the settings is available.

* This post and the one above only apply to the Dynamic package. The Premium package doesn't show 'special information' but doesn't have PC reqs above those of NoteCaddy either.

You should definitely check out the performance guide, that comes with the package. Before, i had a few lags on Zoom tables too but after doing all the steps in the guide, it worked like a charm.
