PT4 showing stats for players I haven't played before

Postby chowdog77 » Sun Oct 23, 2016 3:21 am

Hi,

I'm playing on Party Poker, and when I hop onto a table, instead of showing that player's name and their stats, it is listing them as "player1" or "player2" etc, and is allocating them stats with a lot of hands played despite the fact they're new players to me.

Seen this one before?

Party Poker recently updated their software and now the hand histories it writes are fully anonymous - the names in the histories are always "Player1" etc., and that is the information the PT4 uses. If you don't like this change you'll need to contact Party about it.

OK.... meaning PT4 essentially no longer compatible with PP?

PT4 will show session stats for the anonymous players, and will still track your own results fully (your own name is not anonymous in the histories). The anonymous names only apply to normal cash tables; it doesn't affect tournaments or fastfoward tables at this time.

What happens if a player leaves the table and a new player takes his place? I assume the data from the previous player will be mixed with the new player's data .This could get quite confusing and potentially render the HUD stats meaningless even in the same session. Is this correct?

Yes. If you would like to be automatically notified if a function to reset session stats is added in a future update then you can open a Support Ticket and quote reference #3293.

Further to this, I have another query. I am still using v4.14.8. When playing on Party I can manually reset the HUD to session only stats. This turns the HUD red in color. When a new player joins the HUD reverts to the original color and displays lifetime stats, thus alerting me that a new player has sat at the table. Does the new version do this?

Sorry, just amended above post with underlined for clarification.
