Hello,

Feature Request:

Would like to see the ability to change the font color of the digits displayed on the 'Score Graph'.

Thanks, and I hope you are doing well.
Yep. I've often wished I could change font colors of the various areas including engine info and even coordinates.

I use Banksia 99% of the time now, REALLY love this GUI.

I too hope that things are improving with Nguyen's wife and wish their family well.

I am still getting no polyglot book applied in r2 onwards in Swiss tournament format, I reported this before (possibly I also mentioned knockout which had the same problem)... can you please check all tournament types use the book in all rounds thanks.
Based on the extra info you provided me, the problem is about the randomness of Polyglot books. If you set 0% to Top, BSG always picks up the best replies - almost 1 move for a given position, thus there is almost no randomness. You may need to increase the value of Top for Polyglot books or select another type of opening books (says, PGN or EPD book).

How many cores did you set for each engine?
Can you give me the list of engines, I will try to reproduce the issue. Thanks

On ipad. When setting up a position. Can it be that the uci Engines have problems to begin computation ?

I hope your wife will overcome the health problem.
Always good health.



Whichever engines I choose always the same problem.
Whether I choose Concurrency:6 or 4 or 2 the tournament is interrupted.
I have Windows 10.
Thanks!

Hello,

this GUI is the most i expected a long time searched ones :-)

its include all kind of tournaments including swiss system too :-)

so i have one question, there is also information of ELO for each engine, can this ELO information automactly updated after each tournament or must we changes by hand ? update by hand is a huge of work if you have some 100 engines or more :-(
