Versión 5.1 with kibitzers

I   have   found   some   more   bugs   in   version   5.0,   and   I have   decided   to launch   a new version . This new   version   includes   the possibility of launching   advisers   to analyze   the  positions   on   the   board,   for its   development , I   have   based   on   thorough   explanations   of  Daniel   Trebejo . Access to   this   new function   is   done through the  + Options   menu. Initial menu First, you must create a new one and configure it. There are three types,  First : make the analysis of the response to the current position. Second : seeks out threats (I do not understand their use), calculate what the rival would do if he could move again. Third : shows possible moves and with the possiblity to analyze any of them. You can : create all kibitzers that you want. launch all kibitzers that you want, limit is your pc resources. move and resize the kibitzer-window, it is remembered in the next launch. Other options, are :  Terminate

Problem with install version 5.0

The  first installer   of the   new   version   had   an   error ,   the main consequence   was   that   the previous  scores   were   erased   in   the   installation process. If you have experienced   this   error ,  and you want to get those scores   please contact   me and   I'll   try to   recover   the   lost  scores (only in some particular cases I can solve this) .
