4 - Advanced Settings

  • Hud logging  -  This option is no longer used.  If you need to enable detailed logging for our support team please use the Feature Logging menu.
  • Hide HUD if there's no Hero  -  When enabled the HUD will not show any stats until the Hero has played 1 or more hands.
  • Lock HUD layout - Locks the HUD layout so the HUD positions can not be moved.
  • Auto Z-Order  -  Enabling this option helps to attach the HUD to the proper table if you are stacking tables.  It also allows for reduced CPU use and smoother transitions in the HUD.  You should only disable this option if you are having HUD issues and received instructions from our support to disable it temporarily.
  • Click for stat popup  -  When checked it is necessary to click a stat in the HUD for a HUD Popup to appear.
  • Remember selection - Remembers the selected HUD in the upper left preview drop-down menu of HUD Settings through restart.
  • Force HUD on top of tables  -  This checkbox forces all HUD elements to be displayed on the top layer of the screen-draw.  Some poker sites will display graphics above Holdem Manager’s HUD elements. Checking this checkbox should remedy this problem. **Note** HM2 must be restarted for changes to this setting to take effect**
  • Show HUD on active table only - When enabled only the stats will be shown on the table that was last clicked.
  • Cap % to 99% - When enabled, the HUD stats will show no higher than 99. Left unticked the HUD will show up to 100.
  • Always use two digits for percentages  -  This will add a leading zero to single digit stats.  For example: a stat that would be shown as '3' will be shown as '03'.  This setting does not affect decimals.  For more details please see this forum thread
  • Popup hover time (ms)  -  This adjusts how long is needed to hover over a stat for the HUD Popup to appear.
