  1. After i open this version and select the language, the GUI shows but it freeze? No such problem in version 403b.

  2. I suppose you will refer that this version has at start a small effect, remains quiet during 3 seconds, after that time, begin to move the pieces to be placed to initial position. If during this initial time, press any icon, this process occurs immediately.

  3. Actually, I just got a blank interface and there is no response at all :(

  4. I need to know what operating system you use, and that you try to install in a different folder than defect, if you want you can email me (lukasmonk in gmail).

  5. Thanks for your help, I have worked it out. My OS is Windows XP Chinese version, it must be that I extract the programme into the path which contain some Chinese characters in its path name. Now everything works fine :)

    I hope you can let players turn off the move animation in your final release version. Many thanks again!

  6. Presentation is static during 3 seconds, and if you choose any option during this time, don´t appear animation.

Setting analysis parameters

Since version 2.04, you can change the parameters used by the program to determine whether a move is good or bad and also the elo calculated for an analyzed game. The parameters are as follows: limit_score Default value: 2000 Minimum value: 1000 Maximum value: 4000 Data type: integer Determines the score in centipawns from which the position is considered to be totally won, that the probability of winning is 100%. curve_degree Default value: 50 Minimum value: 1 Maximum value: 100 Data type: decimal percentage Expresses the correlation between the score in centipawns and the probability of winning/losing. It associates -limit_score with 0 and +limit_score with 100.
