Initial Setup (Section 1)

1. On first load of the Ignition Card Catcher, you’ll be asked to pick your database. The Ignition Card Catcher only supports Holdem Manager 2, and PokerTracker 4 for HUD Support. It will catch hands in real time for importing into Holdem Manager 1 and PokerTracker 3, but will not launch a HUD.

2. Ignition Card Catcher will auto setup your import directories for you. Once it’s setup you’ll receive the below message. However, it’s important to double check your settings in your poker database to ensure that your database is importing from the correct directory (see section 2 for PokerTracker 4 or section 3, for Holdem Manager 2).
