Are there any requirements?

1) Make sure the Prima/Microgaming lobby is sorted by tablename or stake.

How does Tableselection work?

PrimaEye is able to "read" your local poker client lobby. This process is called scaning.

Make sure the desired poker room client is running and that the correct tablelist is visible in the lobby.
Remember: PrimaEye reads your local lobby...

Press Scan All Tables to run the scanning.

If configured correct then the tables and playernames along with their statistics from your local database will start to appear in PrimaEye.

Why does PrimaEye change my fonts in windows?

PrimaEye reads the Prima/Microgaming lobby via optical character recognition (OCR).
The OCR only works if clear type fonts are disabled.

How to disable/enable the clear type fonts?

PrimaEye disables the clear type fonts on startup.
PrimaEye restores the clear type fonts when closing.
Nevertheless this steps may fail and you will have to do this on your own:
1) Go to Control Panel
2) Click the "Display" icon
3) Click the "Appearance" Tab
4) Click the "Effects" button
5) Change the font to use "Standard" and not "ClearType"

Where can i select the stake(s)?

PrimaEye always scans the currently in the Prima/Microgaming client visible stake(s).
It is not able to select the stakes on its own.

The tables disappear after the scan finished?

After a scan the advanced and overall tablefilter gets applied.
Go to your PrimaEye Filter and modify or disable these two filters.

I don't get any statistics when scanning the tables?

Have you added your database in "main->options->databases"?
Click here if you use a default PokerTracker 2 Access database.
Click here if you use a PokerTracker 2 PostgreSQL database.
Click here if you use a PokerTracker 3 database.
Click here if you use a HoldemManager database.
Click here if you use a PokerStrategy Elephant database.
Click here if you use a PokerOffice 2 MySQL database.

Make sure you add the correct database, and not an empty one.

Please contact support@spadeit.com.
Include the following:
1) The complete error message.
2) What PrimaEye version do you use?
3) What database and version do you use?
4) Include a screenshot of "main->options->databases" if possible.
5) Include a screenshot of "File->maintain database names" if you use PokerTracker 2.
6) Include a screenshot of "database->database management" if you use PokerTracker 3.

What is datamining?

Datamining is the process of observing and gathering information about your opponents play.

Poker is a game of imperfect information.
Thus the more information you have, the higher your advantage will be.

Where does it save the handhistories?

The Prima/Microgaming client already saves the handhistories for observed tables on its own.
Thus PrimaEye only need to open/close the tables for you.

Where can i set the stake i want to datamine?

PrimaEye always datamines the currently in the Prima/Microgaming client visible stake(s).
It is not able to select the stakes on its own.

How do i run the datamining?

Go to "Datamining->Run Tableopener" to run the datamining.

If configured correct then PrimaEye will open up some tables and start to write the handhistories to disk.

What is Semi-Smart datamining?

The idea behind the Semi-Smart datamining is to open the tables based on the results of a tablescan.
It works like this:
1) Run a scan
2) Sort the scan result e.g. by "#reads" ascending
3) Open top X tables from scan result
4) Datamine them for about 30 minutes
5) Close all tables and get back to step 1)

Thus it would datamine the tables where you have less reads on with a higher priority.
This is a more intelligent way of datamining.

There are endless possibilities to use this semi-smart method:
- Dataminine the tables where your buddies are sitting at with a higher priority.
- Dataminine the tables with the highest average potsize first.
