I think I've got the Hud pretty solid now. With the new filters and options, lag should be considerably reduced or eliminated for most people. The Refresh Rates and the option to not retrieve session stats should eliminate lag unless you have a very slow or overloaded computer. You can also now easily configure color ranges on the Hud. The Hud is, feature-wise, pretty comparable to PokerAce Hud. There's still a lot left I want to add though, so don't think we're done.
I've added support for iPoker. Configuration should be pretty simple. Highlight the site name in the auto-import list and click on the iPoker Configuration tab. Clicking auto-detect should automatically find the hand history directories of any iPoker skin you have installed. If you encounter a skin that it doesn't detect, please let me know.
I should mention that since the Full Tilt update with the new tournament summaries just came out today, PT3's support of these summaries is untested, other than by me. So please carefully check your results from these and let me know of any problems you encounter. I should also mention that you'll have to create a new database to do any imports with this version. I apologize for this inconvenience. If you need the hand histories from your existing PT3 database, in the Database -> Database Management window, there is a bulk export feature that will save all your hand histories to disk. To create a new database, in the same Database Management window, click New, fill out the information and create your database. Make it active and default, if desired and you should be good to go.
Because of our focus on building a solid foundation with support for only three sites, adding support for iPoker was easy, just as I thought it would be. I spent just as much time downloading each of the iPoker skins and installing them for the auto-detection than I did actually coding. Fortunately, Everest is extremely similar to iPoker, so support for it shouldn't take long at all. OnGame is a little more challenging, but should still be relatively easy to add support for. I'm hoping to have another beta available early-mid next week with support for these two sites.
We've decided that our commercial release date is May 15th
. I'm going to do my best to get in as many features and as much polish as I can before then. I have some pretty big changes coming (two new sites, replayer overhaul, and one major "feature" that we believe will make PT3 the must-have next-gen tracker without question
to anyone serious about their poker game), and lots of small, nice features. Don't think that once May 15th hits, PT3 will stop being updated. We have lots of plans for PT3 and will be working furiously over the next few months and beyond to get things out to you. We have lots of long term plans, so don't see May 15th as the goal, but rather as the start.
I'd like to again thank every one of you who has downloaded PT3 and reported bug reports. Those of you who have patiently worked with us through annoyances and problems have helped to make PT3 better for everyone. Thanks for all your help.
