General configuration overview

In order to use the HUD and import your data, Xeester needs to detect the game history folders. These folders contain your hands logs (for more information, go to Import overview).

 

First of all, check that your poker client is installed on your computer..


If Xeester did not detect your poker client during installation :

- Either your settings are wrong
- Or the game history folders are not in a standard location

 

CONFIGURATION STEPS :


1. Make sure that the poker client is set to generate your game history :

 

 

GOOD TO KNOW :

  • Winamax automatically stores game history files in My Doucments\Winamax poker\accounts\[YOUR NICKNAME]\history.
  • All Ongame poker rooms automatically store game history files. Bwin's folder is C:\Users\[Windows USername]\AppData\Local\P5\[ROOM]\handhistory or C:\Users\[Windows USername]\Local Settings\Application Data\P5\[ROOM]\handhistory (equivalent paths).

 

2. Check the referenced folders : Checking hand history folders

3. Automatically detect : Auto detection

4. If needed, manually set the folders : Manually setting hand history folders for Xeester

 

If the HUD still does not work, please post a subject on our forum.

 

Checking hand history folders

1 - Check that your hand history (and Tournament Summaries for Pokerstars) folders are the same as the ones set in Xeester :


sites-pokerstars-1

 

2 - Then double-click on the folder : a file explorer window opens at the folder location.


3 - Check if this folder (or one of its subfolders) contains game history files

 

Note : you need to have read/write access rights on these folders. For more information, open the folder's properties in Windows Explorer.

 

If those folders are not the same as in your poker client, remove them with the Remove button, and confirm :


sites-pokerstars-3

 

Auto detection

If no folder has been detected for your poker client, click the Import > Configure import menu.
Select the room, and click the Folders button to open the configuration dialog.
