Thanks for the request.
The request is still in my TODO list, please wait
I think a huge request that I think a big majority of users will share (besides fixing the Windows 10 crash bug), would be the ability to expand the UCI options window (see image below).
As you can see, for many engines, especially those with a lot of UCI options to tweak, tuning these options involves a tedious 'scrolling and pecking' process.
In the image you can see Rodent II, which has a couple of dozen UCI options, of which only about 5 are visible at once.
This makes it really difficult for tuning because it is hard to visually get a full picture of the overall settings as you're entering them.
In my Non-Programmer's view, the way to remedy this, would be either option 1, the ability to drag and expand the UCI options window (yellow arrow) or b, to create a button that can "pop-out" the UCI options window (green arrow and rectangle) into a fully visible window.
Again, I am not a programmer, so I have no idea which of these options would be easier to implement, but I do
know that Arena has such things which makes tuning engines a breeze...unfortunately Arena is also plagued with more bugs than a Looney Tunes cartoon (get it?
What do you think?
