Thanks Jim.

From a cursory check, it seems to be working much better. It analyzes normal positions OK now, and it finds the TBs.

Still a minor glitch or two is that when analyzing a TB position, the mate-in-x shown is one less than actual, and it still seems to want to cycle through the plies. However, when you stop the analysis of the TB position, it shows that it went 126 plies deep, and it does seem to show a correct move. Maybe just a programming issue, IDK.

For fun, I was playing with the skill levels (1 to 100) on version 6.02. Level 50 seems to correspond to about 1000 elo. I haven't yet tried settings between 50 and 100.
