  3. bug with v8.09 after so many moves playing against the chess engines (20?) clicking on a piece intermittently causes the piece to float above the board and essentially stops the game. I've found this to be a problem with carlsen champion, toga and toyota with critter as the tutor,

    1. I need the contents of the file bug.log in the folder of the program, this may help me, since I have not been able to replicate the problem on my computer.

  4. Hello there,

    Was testing your prog as I am planning to create Youtube-videos with your prog as the interface. There is a small problem though as I was not able to set sounds on? Any suggestions?

    Greetings Jani

      If you want sounds, better way is to assign custom sounds from Options, for instance, add ding.wav to "After rival move".

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. Curve formula created based in  python-chess/Engine/Score/wdl    difmate_inaccuracy Default value: 3 Minimum value: 1 Maximum value: 99 Data type: integer If the difference between the best move and the move made means going
