For most users, configuring Full Tilt Poker by using the Setup Assistant will be the most efficient method of preparing PokerTracker 4 for use with Full Tilt Poker. The Setup Assistant was created to help users automate the configuration of PokerTracker 4 without the need to manually configure your poker environment. To begin the Setup Assistant, simply click Tools > Setup Assistant from the main toolbar. Click the Configure Sites option and turn Full Tilt Poker to Yes. (Users who play Rush will need to configure PokerTracker 4 manually)
There are a couple steps for configuring Full Tilt Poker using the Setup Assistant.
Step 2: You must tell PokerTracker 4 where Full Tilt Poker saves its hand histories. You can use the Auto Detect option to let PokerTracker 4 automatically find where the hand histories are being written. This can be also done manually by going to “Add” and pointing PT4 to the Full Tilt Poker Hand History Folder on your computer. We recommend you also add the Full Tilt Poker Tournament Summary folder at the same time to assure that accurate results will be available in the event you play any Full Tilt Poker tournaments. Once this is configured correctly, click Next.
Step 3: To assure proper HUD placement, you must also configure your seating preferences in PokerTracker 4 to match your seating preferences on Full Tilt Poker. A preferred seat is the seat location you automatically sit at when you sit down at a table. PokerTracker 4 must know your preferred seat to ensure that the HUD correctly displays while you are playing. If you have a preferred seat on Full Tilt, make sure the button says “Yes”. (If you do not, please turn this option to “No” and push Next) . Click Change next to each table type and select the seat in the graphical interface where you automatically sit at while playing. If you are automatically seated in the center seat change the Full Tilt Auto-Center to Yes, this will override your other preferred seat settings.
Simply push Change next to each table type and select the seat in the graphical interface where you automatically sit at while playing. Once you have configured your seat preference for each table size correctly, click Next
The final step gives you the option to import existing hand histories. It is recommended that you select yes, choose the database where you want PokerTracker 4 to import the existing hand histories, and then click OK
Tip: If you have a lot of hand histories saved in your Full Tilt Poker folder, the import process may take some time. Please be patient and let PokerTracker 4 import all of your hands for optimal results.
