– Before clicking “Open Tables” in MS, you should open the first table manually (open it but do not take seat, so it should be either full table or a table with no fishes or unknowns) or the client will crash.
– There are no wait-lists in iPoker so it’s advisable to scan full tables as well. To do it follow these steps:
– Open Scan Filter and set max amount of players for 6-max to 6.
– Unmark “Close full tables” checkbox
In additional settings of MS unmark “React once” checkbox.
!!! When you set scanning area you have to open one table manually and put it into the proper area where tables are scanned. And you have to set scanning area to the exact same size of the table you opened. The key thing is to keep scanning zone proportions same to the table.
