I have played several tourneys and no doubt will get used to the interface but I must say unles i am missing some buttn the print is miniscule and people with compromised eyesight will be definitely at a disadvantaged. Trying to read table results is very difficult as is trying to see how others played the board. Also I wasn't able to register with a partner then go to entries to see p's profile prior to playing. Any help? Also can't see all12 bds at once w/o altering playing surface.

All ok, some features is on another place but in fact all is ok. But, there have one thing that irritates me. In new version has some lag when I'm going throw menus, small lag is also when playing card on the table. On the same computer there aren't such lags on the previous version. Maybe that's only animations but that will be great we can switch off them if we don't wish it.

UPDATE: I switched off animations on account menu but there are still lags, shorter lags but them still exist.

I love the double dummy feature, but have the same eyesight problem. I can hardly tell the difference in the colors or see the minus sign.

There used to be a way to make green blue red and some other color as the suits presumably it is not still there but would be easy to add I would have thought.

I miss the ability to kib one person only. Also, the teaching table options seem fall far short of the options on web version.

think the warning signs should be placed top of the playing area.where it is in the bottom right hand corner makes it easily missed. i refer to the tourneys that are time restricted

You can still kib one person. Right click on them and select "Kibitz". To undo this, right click again and select "Show all hands".

Which options are missing?

when i used the new version a few weeks ago - I could not turn on the option to confirm bids/cards played. That may have been fixed by now. Has that been changed? I have not used that version since.

Most browsers support Ctrl + (hold control key and hit the + sign) to enlarge ("zoom") what you see on your display.
Crtl - makes it smaller.

I really like the new html5 version... many of the best features of the "old" (windows client) version and the flash version...without the flash, and with https, to boot!

V3 is also quite fast! Some of the features moving around will take some getting used to.

As soon as voice/audio commentary at vugraph and teaching tables is ready, I may abandon the old version for good.

For network admins: are there any ports that if allowed through a firewall might speed things up (other than the default ports 80/http and 443/https)?
I know when I allow port 1935 for the flash version, traffic flows much better and reduces hiccups for the voice commentary.

The html5 version just needs 443/80 and websockets.
The 1935 port you mention is for the voice solution in the Flash client, so it is not applicable.

When you select a hand, there's an "Other tables" button in the hand viewer that pops up. This changes the list of hands with a list of other tables for that hand.

After the play of the hand starts, is it possible to review the bidding?
