Hi Michael & Ian,
Yes the "Show higher die on left" box is checked in the Dice tab
of the options panel. I also thought maybe my weights file was
missing or corrupt but the Help-->About-->Evaluation_Engine lists all
the nets as "version 0.15". I use the pre-defined setting of World
Class for everything, analysis, evaluation, and the player setting of
GnuBG. I verified that all settings were correct. No this is not a
Windows build. I am using a Macintosh Powerbook G4 and my build setup
has not changed recently and I am using the same optimization
settings that I have always used.
I keep a copy of the gnubg module on my desktop and frequently
update it using the built-in CVS control of BBEdit. I did recently
upgrade BBEdit but I don't know how that could have corrupted any
files. I will pull a new copy of the gnubg module using my command
line CVS client and re-build GnuBG and let you know how that goes.

I just built gnubg from CVS as of June 15, 2009 05:07 GMT and the

making tutor recommendations which are clearly wrong.
I just pulled latest CVS, built on my MAC. Made sure evals were set
ply/2ply (even tried 0ply/0ply) and started money sessions with
on and Manual dice.
It believes that the normal 8/3 6/3 play is correct (even on 0
ply). I also
don't experience the problem
Is it possible your weights file is corrupt? Is it possible there is a
problem with the Settings/Evaluations (Make sure the plies are
there is no noise)?? (Can you verify)
I tried the test with high die on right, and clicked on the top 8pt
moved correctly to the 3pt. Which is what you'd expect. This is
likely do to
an option that is wrong. Go to Settings/Options..., click the
"Dice" tab. I
am betting that you hav no checkmark in "Show higher die on left".
check it and then try your test again. If I remove the checkmark I
behavior you describe.
Is this a windows build you built?

Gnubg always plays the left die first by default. Have you checked

(To developers: I suggest that this setting be hard-coded and removed

What weights file are you using? It sounds like you might have an
of date weights file, or it may even be missing altogether. Check
Help...About...Evaluation Engine. The weights file should be 0.15.
