For most users, configuring People’s Poker by using the Setup Assistant will be the most efficient method of preparing PokerTracker 4 for use with People’s 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 menu. Click the Configure Sites option and turn People’s Poker to Yes.
There are a couple of steps for configuring People’s Poker using the Setup Assistant.
Step 1: You must tell PokerTracker 4 where People’s 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 People’s Poker hand history folder on your computer. Once this is configured correctly, click Next.
Step 2: To ensure proper HUD placement, you must also configure your seating preferences in PokerTracker 4 to match your seating preferences on People’s 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.
PokerTracker will import the preferred seating selection for you from People’s Poker; if you need to override the detected values then simply push Change next to each table type and select the seat in the graphical interface where you automatically sit at while playing.
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 People’s Poker folder, the import process may take some time. Please be patient and let PokerTracker 4 import all of your hands for optimal results.
