I am still not satisfied with the way, different settings are handled by gnubg. Especially for rollouts I have to change a lot of settings frequently. Easily you can mis-tune gnubg if you are not very carefully.

I understand that via the command line you can save and load settings. Still, I am not really impressed by features that can only be controlled by a command line. Okay, perhaps I am too much a windows user ... ;-)

I therfore make the following proposal: Offer both in the analysis window and the hint window the possibility, to conduct rollouts at different settings. Those sets can be definded by the user and are available in the two windows as buttons, similar like the 1,2,3,4 buttons for the evaluation.

That's how it could look:


The buttons "A" to "D" represent the different rollout settings. This is somehow similar to Snowie's feature, which offers two buttons for rollouts: "Mini-Rollout" and "Rollout". Just a bit better even.

Sorry if I am pressing too hard to turn gnubg from a Mercedes into a Porsche ;-)

Hardy ....a spoiled user :)
