One of many cool but subtle improvements in hm2 is that they've made it easier to set up mucked card positions than in HEM1. If you read the old hem instructions, there is a step which says "you need to use trial and error to find the correct seat". Well have a look at the screengrab I've just done in HM2, which is what you get when you click on "Settings" (next to the cog in the table hud where it shows the last few pots), and check "Show mucked card positions":
Next to each player's name in the hud stats is a number in orange followed by a comma. That's not in my normal hud, and it's not visible when you don't have "Show mucked cards" checked. That's the seat number. So all you have to do to set mucked cards is make sure that the pocket pair is in the right place for the seat (ie pocket Aces go where you want the mucked cards for seat 1, pocket deuces for seat 2 and so on). And no, I don't usually play 10-max I just played one orbit for this screenshot.
