Lol

Technically the wifes laptop. I'm not allowed to delete all her porn

Basing off your description from the previous post, a 'newer' Windows 10 computer should not be doing that.

 

Pokerstars is not a resource intensive program whatsoever, and the fact that it crashes is a concern. Do you know if your computer has any viruses? Do a free online scan first. I can help you a little with removing malware/viruses. It's a hobby.

I sent a request to join. Is there a way to change your username there? Might as well make it match what I have on CDC. Apparently there's a waiting period to change your profile pic there haha

No, the name can't be changed as far as I know.

 

I've also added you in - welcome.

I use 888 poker, can someone start one there too? I don't have enough space for both.

What the heck? How is your hard drive so full? Pokerstars is probably not even 100 MB, lol.

 

I did consider 888poker initially, but I had problems downloading it. The page wouldn't even let me do it. It was just simply BLANK.

So you got it to run the first time, but after that, it crashes?

 

Maybe you downloaded the wrong version of Pokerstars for your windows (like there's x32 and 64 variants). You can check to see which one you have by right clicking on My Computer -> Properties.

I'm a music nut, i have over half a terabyte of MP3's alone. Also have tons lossless files like Flacs. My MacBook is so full right now i can't even do a system update. I have to rid some music, i'll do that and make enough room for Pokerstars.

First game will be held tomorrow at 7:00 pm PST. Time can be adjusted depending on people's availability. Also, it can be earlier too. I'm just setting this up as a placeholder.

Are we able to join mid-game or do we need to be there right on time?

First time after download it prompted me to set up my username, then sent me to the lobby load screen where it crashed.

I opened it up again and it crashed at the lobby, again.

Uninstalled, reinstalled, same crap.

I did a help chat on Pokerstars yesterday from the lobby - more (3 dots on the right) - help - contact help - and changed my username to Gawdzukes.

 

Diogo (pokerstars support) asked me for three alternatives, luckily my first option was available.

I believe you can join within the first ~20 mins or so? I'll get back to you on that.

 

The current format is set to have one re-buy (so you get a re-entry if you get knocked out early) and one add-on (that's if you're low and you get to go back to the same amount you started with at the beginning of the game - 1500 chips). I think you can join before this process happens.

I'll try and look into this through Google.
