PokerTH Portable 0.5 Pre-Release 3 (Testers Needed)

Final version released, topic locked
https://portableapps.com/apps/games/pokerth_portable

This is another one that I had kicking around. It's PokerTH, a Texas Hold-Em style poker variant with excellent graphics and sound that supports both local play against computer opponents and network play against people around the world.

Download Size: 5.5MB
Install Size: 8MB

Download PokerTH Portable 0.5 Pre-Release 3
(may take a few minutes to hit the download servers)

Please give it a try and post your feedback.

Thanks,
John

UPDATE, PRE-RELEASE 2: I added in support for avatars portably. The only limitation is that any custom pics must be on the same drive as the app. And I fixed the INI which still said Sudoku.

UPDATE, PRE-RELEASE 3: I added in a default config file that disables logging entirely (fewer drive writes) and added support for custom flip-side pictures so you can make your own card designs

INI

You might want to change your ini file, it has Sudoku everywhere.

Works well so far

I did the older version once but couldn't get the settings to work so I am glad there is an "official" and working version now.

Cool

Wish I could release some stuff Sad

Anyway, I'll have a couple more apps up later and I'll try this in a minute. It's sounds cool.

Works Good.

(Reply to John and Ryan)

John, it works great, I can't understand how you write all the complex stuff in the launcher, it barely makes any sense to me, but I' trying to figure it out.

Ryan, I see what you mean about keeping up with the forums after going to camp for a week. :| (You said it in an earlier post)

P.S. Glad to see many releases were made while I was away, thanks John.

Disk access

Nice one... Is there a way to disable logging in the default settings? It's activated and set to log every action (= a lot of disk access).

You can change

the settings and set it to low disk access.

I disabled logging entirely.

I disabled logging entirely. It's not the sort of thing you want a PortableApp to do... and perhaps the final release could have a App\DefaultData\settings\pokerth\config.xml that has logging disabled.

I had a lot of fun playing this last night. I also discovered I suck at poker, lol. Smile

Signature automatically removed for being too awesome.

Maybe that will change after that release and we all will become Poker masters...

I'm on it

I'll add it into the final release. Maybe I'll do a PR3 first.

I think PR3

would be a good thing to have the community test it first.

Pre-Release 3

Added in a default config file with logging disabled (fewer drive writes) and added support for custom flipside images so you can design your own cards.

Problems with screen size

I'm not sure if this is a limitation of the software or some kind of setting that could be adjusted, but I just tried it on my older laptop (running windows 2000) with a 12 inch display. The players on the right hand side fully covers the 5th card and paritally covers the 4th card in the middle of the "table".

I should also mention that my screen only supports 800 x 600 resolution

Sorry

But this app only supports 1024x768 and up, I believe. Lots of apps do that these days.

Thanks

I double checked with the PokerTH team too, and they've confirmed it needs at least a 1024x768.

Might be worth mentioning this as a known issue because I'm sure there's others out there with older systems with similar display limitations, provided it makes it past the pre-release stage of course....

Version3 works good

and BTW:
You can change the language of PokerTH by editing the config.xml in PokerTHPortable\Data\settings\pokerth.
Just find the language string (4th line) and edit it.
There are several supported languages: German, Dutch, Spanish, Russian and Norwegian.
