Re: [Bug-gnubg] Analyse / Rollout - do we need it?

There really is little point to it at the moment. 

However, I would ask why this rollout can't be saved. It is that it can't be 
fitted into the sgf structure, which is designed for matches? I was rolling out 
a few reference positions yesterday, and the only way to do it was to set up a 
prior position and roll, move to the desired position and roll out the single 
play. (It was DMP, so there was no place to analyse static position as a cube 
action - and even this would roll out both double and no double).

A few secondary issues, if you are tweaking the menus:

1) Note that there is inconsistent spelling of "analyse/analyse". (The "s" is 
more prevalent, and I have a slight preference for it.)

2) Why is "Cmark" called "Cmark" and not simply "Mark"?  What information does 
the "C" convey?

3) Analyze/Rollout/Game and ) Analyze/Rollout/Match don't roll out the whole 
game game or match, they only roll out the Cmarked moves, I believe. Would the 
menu option be clearer if it read "Rollout Marked"?

Hi All,

Some may know why I am asking this, but I want to see if there is some reason 
that escapes me as to why we have it. On the GNUBG menu under Analyse we have 
(in the first section) Evaluate/HInt/Rollout

Is there any reason we need "Rollout"? As many know this option throws up a 
message box stating that the rollout can't be extended, and can't be saved etc 
(It does a centered cube rollout). How useful is this option? It seems more 
confusing than anything else since we also have Analyse/Rollout/Cube and 
Analyse/Rollout/Move etc and the "Rollout"
button inside of "Hint".

I'd like to remove the menu item "Analyse/Rollout" altogether. Does anyone have 
a good reason why we should keep it?
