How do I setup DriveHUD with Pokerstars?

Important: You must configure the PokerStars tools to save hand histories to a designated directory on your hard drive for both cash games and tournaments.  This feature needs to be enabled on the Pokerstars client in order for DriveHUD to run and display a HUD in your poker tables. In order to enable this feature, simply do the following:

STEP 1

With the Pokerstars client open:

pokerstars lobby

  1. From the PokerStars lobby, click on Settings Playing History >  Hand History.
  2. Check Save My Hands History.
  3. Please note the default location where PokerStars is saving your hand histories under Where To Save.
  4. Click OK to save the settings.

STEP 2

Setup Pokerstars hand history auto import folder

The hand history and site settings should automatically setup on it’s own in DriveHUD for Pokerstars. If a HUD for Pokerstars is not showing up, check your DriveHUD poker site setup by doing the following:

drivehud config

  1. Click on SETTINGS in DriveHUD, located at the top right hand side of most screens in DriveHUD.
  2. From the settings pop-up, click on SITE SETUP. pokerstars setup
  3. From the drop down menu under the move processed files to selection, select the pokersite – POKERSTARS.
  4. If there are no hand history locations listed, select AUTO DETECT.
  5. If the hand locations look correct for your computer setup, click on APPLY at the bottom right hand corner. If they do not show any folders or do not look correct, highlight them and click DELETE, and then click ADD. Manually add the Pokerstars hand history folder directory, which is typically located at: c:\users\(your cpu user name)\AppData\Local\PokerStars\HandHistory

STEP 3 – Change your Pokerstars tools

Setup Pokerstars Tournament summaries

You must configure the PokerStars client to save Tournament Summaries to a designated directory on your hard drive.  This step is required to allow DriveHUD to import tournament results, without summaries your tournament results will be incomplete.

To save your Tournament Summaries in PokerStars, do the following:

  1. From the PokerStars lobby, click on Options > Playing History >  Tournament Summaries.
  2. Check Save My Tournament Summaries.
  3. Please note the default location where PokerStars is saving your hand histories under Where To Save.
  4. Click OK to save the settings.

Step 4 – Make sure your hand histories are in English.

If your HUD is not displaying for Pokerstars.PT or a non english Pokerstars client, it’s because DriveHUD can only read the hand histories it needs to launch the HUD in the English language.

To configure the Language in PokerStars, do the following:

  1. From the PokerStars lobby, select Options > Global >Language. Set Play in to English.

If you play tournaments then you should also set the Email in language as English. Select Options > Global >Language. Set EMAIL IN to English.
