backgammon resign bug (OOPS!)
Posted: Wed Sep 24, 2014 4:56 pm
I have discovered a critical error in the program that causes the bot to resign a single game when losing backgammon. Very sorry about this bug as it is a terrible disappointment to win a backgammon against the bot and not get the points for it. This bug had been reported once before and I thought I had fixed it but it turns out there was a deeper problem that has to do with the gnubg component giving bad data for backgammon position. It will definitively be fixed in the next update. Just one of those hard to catch bugs as the bot doesnt get backgammoned often and the bug didn't present on all backgammon positions so it got past. Sorry once again.
