PowerPC Issue Resolved

Software bugs are so much easier to fix when you can reliably reproduce them. I now realise I should have got myself a PowerPC Mac for testing Poker Copilot eons ago.

With the help of my newly-purchased old school PowerPC-based Mac Mini, not only did I quickly and easily find and fix the “No HUD for PowerPC in Poker Copilot 2.19” issue, I also found some other minor issues.

Before I release an update though, there’s more testing to be done. So far the signs are positive. I played on four poker tables at once for a couple of hours, tracking Poker Copilot’s CPU usage and memory usage. I’m happy with the results. This chart shows Poker Copilot’s CPU usage for a period of about an hour from that 4-tabling session:
