Any plan for decimal amounts?

Postby Krustbox » Mon Oct 26, 2009 10:08 pm

Hi there. I've tried out the trial version of this software and I must say it is absolutely fantastic. I've been looking for something like this for months now and I'm going to make a purchase as soon as i can. I was curious if there were any plans for the future to implement decimal amounts into the chip balance system? So that player balances can handle numbers like 125.75 and also tables created with blinds at 0.25/0.50? I have no idea how difficult this would be to program in which is why i'm simply asking out of curiosity. :mrgreen:

Eventually, yes. The current version was designed mainly for play money and will need some security and accounting improvements first.

By the way, do you have a rough estimate of how soon "Eventually" is? I don't mean to be annoying i'm just really really really excited by your software! You can count me as a Gold version buyer for sure right when i have the extra dough! Great program!

Hopefully in version 3 next year. I'm still working on a few issues in version 2, however.

Roger that. You also mentioned improving security. If I were to put some sort of value to the play money on the current version, for people to bid on prizes for example, would this attract trouble even with remote server access turned off? I'm not a hax0r so i don't know these things. 8-)

I recommend using the whitelist options for both the Remote Admin and API features (if enabled) along with long passwords. Keep an eye on your Error logs for failed remote admin log attempts. And always make sure you are up to date with the latest patch. Everyone on the newsletter list (http://www.briggsoft.com/news.htm) gets an email when an update is available.

Yes, you just pay the difference. Lite to Pro is $70 and Pro to Gold is $400.
