The only reason there isn't more and better competition is that most poker players who are also programmers would prefer to be playing poker than writing a next generation tracker and HUD despite probably getting a better hourly writing a PT killer.
You've spoken with everyone who has downloaded and tried PT3?
If you have not, and are assuming that everyone is having the problem because you are and others that post here are, that's being a little presumptuous.
I'm not belittling anyone (at least not purposely, apologies if I come off that way). I'm just trying to clear up the misconception that everyone is experiencing these major problems when that's simply not the case. Yes, there are a large number of people experiencing problems, but we have a lot of users, and most of them have no problems at all. Therefore it shouldn't come as a surprise when someone tries the trial, experiences no issues, and then wants to purchase.
If you think it's easy to develop a fully featured tracking application, you're also mistaken. HM has been in development over two years. PT3 about 11 months. Even PokerEV (which some believe will be the second coming) has been in development much longer than PT3, and he's missed his public beta deadline by over 4 months and nobody other than a very small group of people have seen anything more than screenshots so who knows what will happen when it's finally available.
My point is development takes time. These problems we're having are taking longer than anticipated, but that's usually the way software development works. We are
making progress and the next beta will fix even more issues than beta 12. PT2 and PA Hud are rock solid for nearly everyone who tried it. This stability didn't come over night and with thousands of different computer configurations, it takes a while to fix all the obscure problems.
