Poker Copilot + SharkScope = Merge Network tourney results available

Want to see your Merge Network tournament results in Poker Copilot? We’re adding this to Poker Copilot 5.

Here’s the problem: Merge doesn’t make tournament results available in an easy-to-read text file, unlike other poker rooms.

Now we have a solution, if you have a SharkScope account: you can right-click on any tournament in Poker Copilot and request to “Fetch Tournament Results from SharkScope”.

Before: No tournament results showing

Poker Copilot 4.33 Now Available

Poker Copilot 4.33 is now available to download.

What’s changed

  • Fix: Better handling of change from summer time to winter time, and vice-versa.

Every year, around this time of year, many northern hemisphere countries change from summer time to winter time, and some southern hemisphere countries change from winter time to summer time.

And every year, around  this time of year we encounter bugs. Not always Poker Copilot bugs; sometimes they are from the poker rooms. But sometimes they are definitely Poker Copilot bugs.

Several Brazilian states changed last weekend to summer time, and that exposed a bug in a third-party library we use. So we’ve updated to the latest version of the library, and hopefully that will avoid similar problems when the rest of us change in the coming weeks to a different time setting.



Poker Copilot and Yosemite

Today Apple released OS X 10.10, aka OS X Yosemite. Poker Copilot works fully on Yosemite. I’ve been using the Yosemite developer preview versions for months to make sure.

However the first time you start Poker Copilot after upgrading to Yosemite, you will see this message:


Click on “More info…” and follow the steps. It is a one-time process that you’ll need just for Poker Copilot but for some other applications also built on Java.

Do note that I hope to release a new update in the next days that will prevent the need to install the “legacy Java SE 6 runtime”.


Quote of the day

“Good QA testers are worth their weight in gold.”

That’s all.
