This is absolutely amazing for Snowie 4. The program evaluates positions
according to match score processing its cubeful evaluations of cubeless
money percentages according to match score. ..ie its evaluation of positions
performs all the necessary steps (acording to score) to perform rollouts
according to score and yet, the option isn't available !!

Why ?  Perhaps it is bcuz the developers felt SW 4 was allready too slow,
like most users do. Or perhaps it was bcuz they couldn't or were unwilling
to figure out how to make it work perfectly ?

Snowie 4 is so much slower than Snowie 3, and the UI is worse. This makes me
wonder if their development team lost a key programmer.

However, Snowie 4 is very strong in key simple backgame positions. I have
some work to do to evaluate the new GNU build in these positions.

It gets better. The new Snowie 4 is *incapable* of playing according to
score in rollouts. It's not even an option anymore.

BTW, I wonder why Snowie has the "chequer play according to
score"-option. Why would you ever want to do a rollout not according to
score? Is this just a quick way to set up a money rollout???
