Have you configured Stars to save the hand history files?
See the Help link on the auto import window in PTO.

I just downloaded the comoda firewall program and now my HUD doesn't work. The thing is though that i got a message that asked if i wanted to allow pt3 HUD to connect and i selected allow. Also I can see a list of programs or connections that my new firewall is blocking and pt3 HUD is not one of them. Also in the firewall i went to the list of processes and pt3 is in their, but not in the connection list. But This seems like too much of a coincidence for it to not be because of the firewall.

Have any of you guys heard of problems like this. Or is this just a coincidence and my HUD is not working for another reason?

This would make sense if pt3 used A program called DNA for their HUD. anyone know if they do?

While playing on 2 tables w/ the same name on FT today, my hud was only running on 1. I use PT3 on vista, anyone else have this issue?

I replied to your thread in the sponsored PT3 forum - there is no need to cross-post; we read every thread in there.

The big news with this release is the addition of two new sites. We've added support for Cake and for Bodog.

Cake Notes
Cake was very reluctant to allow trackers to work with their site. They wanted a number of restrictions. You'll notice that once your Cake hands are imported, the player list won't display any of your Cake opponents. You will also notice that the Hud does not work on their tables. Cake is very adamant about this. If you, as a Cake player who pays rake, want to see this change, the only option you have is to contact Cake and request that they change their minds regarding it.

Bodog Notes
Instead of requiring our customers to purchase a 3rd party hand grabber just to be able to play on the site, we decided to write our own hand grabber. Bodog does not make this an easy task. However, we believe the results are worth it. There are a couple of caveats though. One is that tournament Hud support is not ideal. This is due to the fact that Bodog does not identify the unique table names on the titlebars of their windows like other sites do. If you multitable Bodog tournaments, you may have problems with the Hud. We are working on a resolution, but in the meantime, emailing Bodog and asking them to add this logical feature to their software may help. The other caveat is that observed hands will not be imported. You'll be able to get stats on observed tables, but the PT3 grabber will not import them.

Also with this release, we are beginning to reveal our changes to the user interface in order to make things easier on the user. We've improved the startup routine when database errors occur. Before, you would get a cryptic error message (or even a lockup) when PT3 was unable to connect to one of your databases. Not anymore. Now PT3 offers you alternatives and clear concise messages regarding what happened. We've also added keyboard accelerators all throughout the application. Some people like to use their keyboard more than their mouse, so we are working to make that possible within PT3. In addition to that, we've given you the ability to backup and restore your databases easily, right within the PT3 interface.

There are a number of bugs resolved in this version. We've resolved more of the crashing issues and performance problems. A large number of import problems have also been fixed. Please see the list above for others.

I heard that it can have 3bet preflop% shown, what else is it better thand PT2?


Also, if I use PT2m, there is no way i can have opponents 3bet preflop % , right ?
Thanks.

Is there anyway to keep the Poker Tracker placement of the VP$IP/PFR/AFq boxes the same for each seat at the table? I play nothing but 6-max and would like all 6 boxes for seats 1-6 to appear in the same spot everytime. I play 10 tables and it is near impossible to readjust all of these everytime. Thanks.
10-04-2009 , 11:44 PM
Anyone have an answer for this?

PT3 has many improvements over PT2 - there are many other built in stats which PT2 does not have, but also the ability to build your own custom statistics and reports. The HUD is much more configurable, import speeds have been improved, the UI updated, and much more.
There is a 60 day free trial, so please try it out.

You are correct - 3Bet information is not stored in PT2.

PT3 will put the stats by the appropriate seats at all tables, but if you are playing short-handed tables at a site which does not write the table size to the hand history files (most of them) then you need to enable the 'Adjust Qualifying Tables Limits' option on the Auto Import tab.

If you use preferred seating please read the Tutorial: Preferred Seating.

I decided to try the trial and used a previous installer I had downloaded yesterday. I imported a relatively large database of hands and realised today that I was not using the latest version so I upgraded.

When I restarted PT3 it said about updating the database which it did for about 2 hours and then crashed. I restarted the computer and loaded PT3 and it said the same thing and is currently processing.

Its been 4 hours since I restarted and it seems like its responding but gives no indication of how long it will take (or how long the whole process is excepted to take). I am travelling in 3 hours and need to take the laptop with me and the battery won't last the commute.

I know you won't know how long mine will take but I want to get a vague idea so that I know if the software isn't doing anything as I can't tell if anything is actually happening.

How big is the "large database" that you attempted to import?

I would think its about 2m hands but can't check.
10-05-2009 , 10:28 AM
Its completed and working so all good. Ty.
10-05-2009 , 10:53 AM
Does the trial version not let you make your own stats? Tbh this is the main reason I plan to purchase PT3 so I wanted to try it out first. Is there anyway to do this?

Edit: Just looked at the website and it says not so nps.

I'm glad to hear you got things working, and no, custom statistics is one of the few things that is restricted to the full registered version.
10-06-2009 , 05:46 AM
Clustering has taken me 10 hours so far. I have about 2m hands (first import) and, compared to other times mentioned in this thread, this seems to be very high.

Is there something wrong or is it probably just that my computer sucks?
10-06-2009 , 08:48 AM
How much free space do you have left on the hard drive in question? If you don't have 15-20G free right now, that's probably your problem. PostgreSQL needs as much space free as your database takes up (and 2M hands at FR is ~20G, at 6M it's ~15G) in order to be able to cluster efficiently. The smaller the amount of free space you have, the longer the cluster will take.
10-06-2009 , 02:27 PM
Is there any way of renaming reports after they have been saved?
10-06-2009 , 04:16 PM
Not at this point in time, but it is a feature we are hoping will be added soon.
10-07-2009 , 11:09 AM
Sorry for all these questions and I appreciate your help. Just trying to set it up as I purchased PT3 to check out the stats.

The clustering that I mentioned on my previous post never stopped but I think thats because I only had 20GB left on my HD. I freed up 100gb, deleted the database, reimported 1.5m hands into a new database and started clustering for the first time on this database. Its taken 7 hours so far and still going.

Is this normal?

I think it would be useful to have an expected time on the housekeeping actions. Maybe this is not possible as I don't know how the database processes work but its just a little frustrating having no idea if its doing anything or how long its going to be.
10-07-2009 , 11:28 AM
The Cluster is done by PostgreSQL, not PT3, and there's no way for PT3 to know when the cluster will be done. Depending on the rest of your computer specs, that isn't outside the realm of possibility (7 hours), but you should be on average nearing the end.

Clustering is like defragging; so after a huge import the cluster will take a lot longer than clustering a database that's been previously clustered before. (You don't need to cluster super often, either.)
