AD Chat 1.0 Released

Postby rjones33 » Tue Sep 29, 2009 10:58 pm

Hey Guys,

I created this utility called Ad Chat that automates the task of sending messages to a particular tournament at specified time intervals (1-10 minutes). This program can be run from your server or your workstation, it doesn't matter. Ad Chat reads in a list of messages, ads, announcements from a text file and displays them periodically at the interval you set for the selected tournament. Give it a shot and see what you can come up with...Detailed instructions are included in the zip file....Enjoy!

I just checked out this utility. I had no idea it existed until you linked to it in your Player Registration utility thread. I created a similar thing with just raw php files (no nice user interface) and cron jobs. The only difference is that my program runs 24/7 and sends messages to all ring games and tournaments. It checks if a table has any players on it. If it does it sends the message. If not, no message is sent. I think a combination of both of our programs if you will would be awesome. I like the ease of use of your program but I think you need the option to have it run 24/7 (or on a set schedule similar to a cron job rather than having to be present to begin the messaging) and send to all ring games, tournaments, or just to specific ring games and tournaments too. That would be really cool. Maybe something to consider if you are going to make a v2.0.

I might consider doing something like that as my site grows, but it would be overkill for me right now. I have league tournaments on Monday, Wednesday & Fridays and just wanted an easy way to automate messages or ads to these tournaments. One of the nice things about the AdChat program is that it doesn't have to reside on the server. It works well for a 'quick and dirty' solution to get your automated messages/ads out to a specified tournament. You maybe the only other person to use it besides myself as I haven't heard any chatter or had any comments about it. Just something I thought I would share with the Poker Mavens community.

I've entered all my info correctly as I have triple checked it. I am getting 'ord is incorrect' in the Select Tournament dropdown menu. Any idea why? I am running the program from my dedicated server where I host my game server.

Oh I think I figured it out. There was a tourament running but it ended before I realized it and could test out AdChat so I'm assuming this is what happens when there are no tournaments running?

Victor,

I downloaded the version from my ftp and tested it successfully. If I had to guess, I would say that it has something to do with the fact that you have a site password set on the server. I don't have one set on mine. Try a test without the site password and see if that is your issue. If it is, I'll modify the program to accomodate that. Thanks.

Greetings,

Would you please post a link to this 24/7 utility. I would love to take a look at it.

Thank you very much
