View Full Version : Partyupdate next week

I read this on another forum. Do you think it will disturbe HEM?

In the last week of January we will release the next version of the client. We are informing you earlier than usual as this release will incorporate some changes which may impact 3rd party software such as Pokertracker.

Apologies in advance for the long post but we want to make sure you understand what changes will be happening so that you can minimise disruption to your game play.

The changes which could impact 3rd party products are:

1) An addition of the total number of seats at the table as well as the number of players in the hand history. So for example:

"Total number of players : 4" will become "Total number of players : 4/6"

This has been requested by many players and we hope it will prove useful.

2) Secondarily, we will be removing the player information pop-up for cash games from the lobby as you now have the option to embed the same information in the lobby. The sections marked red in the screenshot will be removed.

This means that any software which currently reads from the pop-up, will need to be adapted to read from the embedded information in the right hand side of the lobby.

We have already contacted some of the major 3rd party tools (such as Pokertracker) but please be aware that we do not work with all 3rd party tools you may be using, neither can we enforce that they update their tools, and these changes could cause some disruption to your tracking software following the release.

We are already aware of it and hopefully our preparations will be fine.

But you never know what the Party developers finally release... :)
