Please ! can you add that it runs 8 games in a row if i have only 8 CPUS, instead its running 10 games at same time.

i mean allow running games at same time that you have CPUS

I would leave 1 thread for OS tasks, in this case concurrency of 7.

Total of 1000 games against each opponent for a total of 3000 for the match, concurrency is 3.

It has crashed twice. Also the results for asmFish were far below what I get when I use cutechess-cli 0.6.1 with CuGen.
I also noticed that when "Highlight legal moves" is unchecked, it still continues to highlight them.

Thanks. I just left a 3-player 24000 game tournament with concurrency=4 running. Hopefully the bug can be reproduced.
I reproduced the bug after about 100 games. It's actually the same bug as before, my fix just wasn't thorough enough.

You mean the black dots that appear when you put the mouse cursor over a piece? They should go away if you uncheck "highlight legal moves". I don't know why it wouldn't work on some setup.

No problem here. It even works on the fly.

Just another suggestion:

Instead of leaving all grey for the white clock, just invert the box of the black
clock for it. Somehow it looks better at least IMHO.

No, I thought that feature referenced the yellow arrows. They stay no matter what.

You can use the file "engines.json" of previous versions to use the engines in the new GUI?
