Howto config Tournament

Postby JerryB » Sat Apr 04, 2020 4:22 am

Hello guys,
we run PM as a unique online poker league for Germany, Austria and Switzerland with weekly recurring tournaments. For years we have worked without LateReg and only with the Ready Button. Some time ago we introduced LateReg and encountered the following problem:
Our Sunday open tournament start time is 11:00am. Last week only 1 player was registered at 11:00am. The next players arrived at 11:02am. The consequence was that the tournament did not start because not enough players were registered at the tournament start time. Even after 5 minutes the tournament did not start, although 7 players were already sitting at the table. An admin had to start the tournament manually using the PM software.
Does anyone have an idea how to work around the problem of not autostarting the tournament?

Relevant tournament configuration details:
Start time-------------11:00am
Registration period---60
Late registration-----30
Minimum players------2
Recur Minutes---------0
Reset seconds--------30
Maximum runs--------1
No-shows minutes---30

Thank you very much for your ideas and suggestions to solve the problem.

Best regards

You could automate it with code. Use the timer event in the Callback Event system to trigger code that uses the API to check which tournaments need a manual start and then starts them.
