Re: A FPHG bug sent via a PM

I already PM'ed Juk, but maybe one of you knows what I'm doing wrong.

Re: A FPHG bug sent via a PM

The HHF files are writing perfectly; Juk can't help you with a PT problem, which is what you've got. . . but I can see the problem from your screenshots:

That's where you tell PT where to find your PLAYED hand history files. In the import screen, there's a separate button to configure auto-import for OBSERVED hand history files; that's where you need to add this folder!

TY! I seem to get 2/3 PT questions each day and just wish people would realize all I did was write something to save hand histories, and so long as FPHG is saving them I've done my bit.

I actually use another application called PokerManager to help me, so I'm fairly clueless when it comes to PokerTracker and PokerOffice problems.

Over the next few days I'm gonna add a GUI to FPHG and I'll do my best to setup a fake PokerNow.exe folder for PT to use (but PT Pat seems to change stuff and last time using EmpirePoker.exe broke soon after the method was posted here).

I'm also gonna try to make a FAQ (possibly on a Wiki if I can), so anybody who knows what they are doing when it come to importing into PokerTracker, PokerManager and PokerOffice (and any other use for the HHF's) can help write the FAQ.

Also if possible I'm gonna try to stick the source in a Wiki (or host some form of CVS if it proves to be too hard to Wiki-ize), so the people who have shown interest in modifying FPHG can all work on the same codebase (eg: checkout how well the AHK stuff has worked - we've had 5/6 different people working on some of those scripts).

Re: A FPHG bug sent via a PM

The only really odd thing I can see is a folder called "EmpirePoker.exe". To make PT work then you can't use EmpirePoker anymore (unless you have an old version of PT), so you need to make this into PokerNow.exe

Also, its shouldn't be a folder, it should be a fake ".exe" in the folder where the .hhf files are getting saved. Try this:

Copy "FreePHG.exe" and rename the copy to be "PokerNow.exe" and it should then be possible to make PT look in this folder.

Re: FPHG available

The zip archive is the same as always - Juk and others have talked about it in this thread.

If you try to open the archive directly from the site where it's hosted, you may or may not get a corruption message.

Make sure to download the file to your local machine before opening it and it will probably work just fine.

Re: FPHG available

juk,

i've been mining SNGs and quite often it seems on the last hand, it catches the 2nd place winner, but stops capturing data before the 1st place winner is listed. (so it'll import that they lost $, with "N/A" for finish) Is there a setting I can change to catch more data after the hand is finished?

Thanks and my apologies if this has been addressed before - quite long thread.

Thanks.

I am a kind of a zipfile expert and I definitly think there is something is wrong with this file, or it may be the server not giving complete permissions to download it( can you download it? and open it? try please.

Which zipfile are you trying to download? (are you trying to download the one from the OP or the one from http://www.jukofyork.com/freephg.htm ). The zpfile in the OP I replaced so it just contains a single text file saying "please goto http://www.jukofyork.com/freephg.htm ". If the zipfile doesn't work, have you tried the RAR file?

Try editing run.bat to look something like this:

@echo off
freephg.exe -p 1 -d 200


This will make it eat more CPU time and always keep FPHG at a slightly higher priority than anything else. It may help your problem (assuming your PC is fairly fast) but I can't say for sure.

An email sent to me

Juk,

The program runs great and continues to be very helpful.

One previously occasional, minor glitch now seems to have become permanent that I thought you would want to know about.

Specifically, the location where the observed.*.hhf files are being stored moves itself from FreePHG folder to another location.

This happened three other times where the .hhf files where being stored in a folder of a utility dashboard program I use called Pathfinder.

Finally, I figured out that, maybe, reinstalling FreePHG, I have v.06, might solve the problem ... it did.

But, all of a sudden today it started happening again.

I finally found the .hhf files being gathered by FreePHG were being stored in 'C:\Program Files\PokerAce Hud\Data\Temp\Party.'

I tried reinstalling FreePHG but the .hhf files still keep getting sent to 'C:\Program Files\PokerAce Hud\Data\Temp\Party.'

Now, in PokerTracker, I just moved the path from 'f:\Program Files\FreePHG' to 'C:\Program Files\PokerAce Hud\Data\Temp\Party'
I needed to install FreePHG on my 'f' drive since I was concerned about space limitations on the 'c' drive.

Suggestions? Advice? Is the fact that I have FreePHG installed on another drive, not the 'c' drive, causing a conflict??

Quote:
I think it's more likely that PAHUD is grabbing section of the same hand histories from memory and these are what you are seeing in the PAHUD folder.

Overall FPHG is so simply in the way it works, that I can't see any way if could possibly be moving them off to another folder (it only has the ability to save the .hhf to the folder where it started).

For similar reasons reinstalling FPHG wont make much difference, as again its so simple (unless it's somehow getting corrupted on a corrupt Hard Disk?).

It could be that their is a bug in FPHG causing the files to not be written and you are looking at the files in the PAHUD folder thinking these are the same (if this is the case nobody else has reported this though.).

I'll post this on 2+2 forum and see if anybody else has any ideas.

Juk
Anybody else have any idea whats going on here or sen anything like this before? (FPHG is too simple to be moving the files off to somewhere else and just can't do it as far as I know...).

Re: FPHG available

I'm also experiencing strange things with the location of saved .hhf files. If I start FPHG manually it will save files in the same folder; if I start it by script, it will save files in the same folder as the script.

No big deal, but it would be nice if all files always were saved in the FPHG folder, instead of my script folder, which has gotten quite full by now.

Like I said, no biggie, but I've got an easy fix for this. If you include the working directory it works. For instance, if I have a folder "Scripts\", and a folder "Scripts\FreePHG\", I can use the following code in script file "Scripts\OpenFPHG.ahk" to open up FPHG and have it save HH files in its own folder:

Run, FreePHG.exe, FreePHG\

As Juk said, FPHG is very simple, but it's technically wrong to say it only writes files into the folder where it's installed. Technically, it writes the files into the "current folder" of the command instance it runs in.

That means if you run it from a prompt or batch file, it will drop the files in the directory you were in when you ran the batch. That's usually the same folder it's installed in.

If you run it from a shortcut on your desktop, the files will go elsewhere! But if you make a shortcut, you can set the option in the shortcut's properties for "start in", and tell it what folder to run in - that's the folder which will get the files.

Yes, it just runs as a normal CLI app (I should really have added an option for the name of the folder to save to - this would save making shortcuts, etc). When I get round to adding the GUI, then I'll make sure you can select a different folder (somebody already asked for this in a PM a bit back).

If you open up the .hhf files, are they being written to? If so, then if you run both v0.04 and v0.06 at the same time are the .hhf files any different?

Re: getting v6 to work

If anyone is having trouble using auto import, try the steps listed below, but instead of empire, use MultiPoker

it should work


1. Make a folder for mining somewhere.
2. Copy an execuatble into this folder and rename it EmpirePoker.exe (or another skin you don't use).
3. Copy FreePHG.exe into this folder also.
4. Open up some tables (see below).
5. Start running FreePHG.exe from your mining folder and you should start to see .hhf files appearing for the tables you are watching.
6. When you want to import these hands, point PT at this folder by pointing it at the EmpirePoker.exe (it will then think this folder is the empire folder and [auto-]import from their).

(Thanks the Adde for working out this method! )

Re: getting v6 to work

I have a basic question that hopefully someone can answer. Once I have PT read the .hff files from the folder that FPHG saved them to, can I delete the .hff files from the folder? Thanks

Yes as they are all stored in PT after you import them, but I would save them anyway as it is possible for PT to corrupt it's DB and if you zip the old .hhf files, they don't take up much space.

How long have you left it trying for?
Have you tried restarting Party and/or FPHG?

Try editing run.bat to look like this:

@echo off
freephg.exe -prof -debug >> fphg.log


Then use run.bat to run FPHG and zip/send the log file to me at: jukofyork@yahoo.com
