Were you part of the PokerTracker 4 Public Beta Test? If so, then we greatly apreciate your help during the past seven months. Now that we have released PokerTracker 4 commercially, we have a little word of advice for those Beta Testers; for the best performance we advise that you create a new database and then re-import your hands from the processed files folder at your convenience. You do not have to create a new database, but for optimal performance of speed and also results you should take our advice.
Allthough it is an inconvenience, this recommendation is due to the many improvements made during the Beta test period that can only be implemented during the importing of hand histories. A re-import is not required to continue to use PokerTracker 4, but it is recommended. If you create a new database and re-import your hands, then you can take advantage of the performance fixes that have been implemented and some key stat adjustments such as our new effective stack size calculations.
We apologize in advance for those who will be inconvenienced by the extra time needed to perform a re-import, but we can assure you that it will be a worthwhile investment in the performance of your PokerTracker 4 database in the long run.
