No, I wasn't aware. I'll try to get a pre-emptive patch out. It doesn't appear like they made the changes yet.
It looks like the hands will still import without errors but the times will be incorrect.

OK, here is a patch for this when it happens. I hope I didn't mess anything up, I really don't like coding against something if I'm not 100% certain of the format. If they use what they displayed on 2+2 this should work.

Get the latest PT patch here...

If anyone has loaded hands the times will all be 12AM. If you really want to fix this (it's not necessary, the dates should still be OK) then you would have to export, purge and reimport all the hands since the date this problem started.

1. Use the Utilities > Export Hand Histories To File window to export all the hands played since the date they made this format change.
2. Use the Utilities > Database Maintenance and Options window to purge all your sessions that were played since the date they decided to make this format change. You will see they all have 12AM as the date for the session.
3. Then reimport the hand history files that were exported in step 1.

Let me know if there any issues.

As far as I can see the change has been implemented.

In the Stars client got Options -> Time Zone Settings...

I saw that, however, at least if you have EST selected, there has been no change to the hand histories.

The only other time zone showing in my client is CET.

Perhaps someone using CET can tell us if the HH's for that zone have changed, and if Pat's patch works.

I'm not sure why you posted this. This is the old format.

I believe whatever change you are talking about in this thread has been implemented. Today when I imported some tournament summaries I received the error, unexpected end of file. Here is the content of the HH file:

PokerStars Tournament #200801130, No Limit Hold'em
Buy-In: 5000 FPP
9746 players
$1000000.00 added to the prize pool by PokerStars
Total Prize Pool: $1000000.00
Tournament started 2008/11/30 14:30:00 ET
Tournament finished 2008/11/30 22:49:24 ET
1: Higote (Getxo), $100000.00 (10%)

Thanks,

Please let me know when this will be fixed.
