Dear masters of gnubg,

Always easier to complain than to do something about it :-) but here's 12
quickies; bugs and suggestions...

The following all applies for the windows version of GnuBg

(0.14 dev3D build 031029)

  1.. Why can't I watch all rollout statistics while rolling out (not only
equities but also closeouts, hits, cubes etc.)?
  2.. When you just start GnuBg and press edit and try to set checkers up
you can't. Same thing happens with new>position.
  3.. Often crashes after doing a cube decision rollout, probably when
opening the statistics window.
  4.. Where did the rollout-results of some of the moves and cubes in my
match go after I saved it?
  5.. Why only rollout statistics when doing a cube decision rollout and not
when doing a normal rollout?
  6.. I still think it's annoying that there's no dialog to adjust the
rollout settings before launching a rollout (analyze>rollout). 90+% of the
time I check my rollout settings anyway (with settings>rollout). Don't you?
  7.. I still think "checker" is the correct word. NOT "chequer" as seen in
some menus (Jørn?)
  8.. Why is there no indication on screen of what type of game you're
playing? Maybe checkboxes (below the Crawford one) with "moneygame" "match"
  9.. Do you have a database of positions where GnuBg's evaluations are
nuts? Example: posID: "HgAAKLdtA4AQAA", matchID: "UQkAAAAAAAAA". GnuBg's
evaluation seems totally random when you try different plys. Clearly correct
here is double-pass.
  10.. When you set up a position with GnuBg on roll and try Hint you get
the message "you cannot double" no matter what the position is. Confusing.
  11.. Why posID AND matchID? Why not just one ID-string describing ANY
postion (cube, score, hyper etc.)? It doesn't need to be of fixed
(bit)length either.
  12.. Problem with refresh of the 3D opengl board (under windoze). When you
drag, resize etc. parts of the board disappears.
Btw. I've started a sort-of-FAQ, gnubg4dummies in danish

Hope it's ok and that you creators may get a feeling of how difficult even
"simple tasks" can be for many gnubg firsttime users.

Keep it up!
Morten Juul Henriksen
