View Full Version : Observed Hands

08-12-2009, 08:56 PM
I haven't been on in awhile and just go the new 1.09 beta. I know FT has had a lot of updates and software programs like spadeEye do not datamine observed hands anymore.

I used to be able to pull a few tables up watch my hands import without sitting at them. Does HoldemManager not import observed hands anymore or is there a way I still can.

You can not datamine at FTP any longer. You can pre-fetch 1 - 5 hands before you sit.

HUD Options > Site Options > Full Tilt > Pre-Fetch > 1 - 5 hands

Make note of the Pre-Fetch folder, and add that path to the Options > Configure Auto Import Folders

C:\Program Files\RVG Software\Holdem Manager\Importing\HEM Data

Now if you start auto import, and open the tables, you can get stats before you sit. It takes a good 2 or 3 hands until the stats appear for Pre-Fetch at FTP, compared to Stars where it is almost instant.

Note: When you sit down at a table with observed stats, the ftp client spins the table to auto-center your seat. HM can not spin the HUD to match until it has imported your first hand. So, the HUD will be visible on hand 1, but will not be aligned properly. I recommend useing the Abb. name stat if you dont already to help you spot this when it occurs. If you don't know also, you can assign color ranges to the Abb. Name stat according to their stack size in big blinds. It's a great feature for spotting short stackers.
