FlopZoom Lite User Guide

FlopZoom Lite has most of its controls and options right on its display. There are only a few preferences, and you won't need to change them often.

Choose FlopZoom Lite > Preferences... to bring up the Preferences dialog. It has one pane for options and another for special rarely-used commands. Click on the Options or Commands buttons at the top to switch between the panes.

You can choose two options here: FlopZoom Lite's update interval and the color of the text used in its display.

Update interval
FlopZoom Lite can add hands to its database while you play, and here is where you tell it how often to add those hands. The interval defaults to 5 seconds, which provides nearly continuous database updates as you play. You can choose from 5 seconds to 5 minutes, and you can also turn the real time update feature off by choosing Never.

Playback text
By default, FlopZoom Lite shows each player's names, actions, and hand odds in white and gray. If you would rather see this text entirely in white, you can click the All white button. (Note that the odds text will show a tilde ("~") to indicate approximate odds when there are unknown hole cards and the all white text option is chosen.)

Here you'll find several commands that we were sort of trying to hide. They're here in case you have trouble, so they're important. But we hope you'll never need to use them.

Export Skipped Files
We've worked hard to make FlopZoom Lite "sock rolid," but occasionally you might find a hand history file that it can't handle. FlopZoom Lite remembers all files it had trouble analyzing, even if it crashed while analyzing a file. It will skip over those problem files on all subsequent launches.

Clicking the Save Skipped Files button will copy the history files FlopZoom Lite had trouble with into a folder on your desktop called FlopZoom Lite Skipped. We'd really appreciate it if you could send any files in that folder to . It will help us fix the problem so you can add the sessions to your database with future versions of FlopZoom Lite.

Import Skipped Files
Most of the files that FlopZoom Lite skips contain unsupported games (Omaha, Stud, etc.) In addition, any file that caused problems when FlopZoom Lite tried to import it is marked to be skipped forever, even on database rebuilds. The Import Skipped Files command will attempt to add those problem files to the database.

Normally we do not recommend importing skipped files. Occasionally we will announce updates to FlopZoom Lite and suggest that you might try importing skipped files.

Rebuild Database
You'll probably never need to use it, but we made the Rebuild Database command available here just in case. We recommend that you contact before you rebuild your database.

Note that future versions of FlopZoom Lite may require you to rebuild the database on first launch. If you install a new version of FlopZoom Lite and it needs to update your database, it will present you with a warning dialog before it performs the rebuild. This gives you the option of waiting until a more convenient time to perform the rebuild, which could take several minutes.
