I make the changes in "Settings"/ "Players", set each at the same skill level, but get the following  message"

--You must set a count of extra moves and a search tolerance (see `help set player 0 movefilter').Settings saved to C:\Users\JB\.gnubg\gnubgautorc. Settings saved to C:\Users\JB\.gnubg\gnubgautorc.

I truly love the game, but haven't a clue how to set the above paragraph parameters.

I just noticed the area to set "Cube Decisions".  I can change settings for GNUB, but once again, I (JB) cannot make any changes as the window is greyed out.  No matter what I do, when GNUB starts filling its Home Panel, and I have a checker on the bar, trying to get in, even with 3 (or even 4) points open GNUB starts throwing many many doubles, eventually filling the panel, blocking ANY of me ability to get my checker in.  There seems to be a significant aggressive acceleration as the game winds down, that doesn't seem to apply to me, JB. 

Worse yet, as GNUB starts bearing off and clearing the higher points, my rolls far to seldom can get in, and they keep getting smaller, and smaller and confined to only the GNUB blocked points. 

Far too often in the final GNUB bearing off phase, GNUB can throw a double and one of it's checkers, buried in my home panel. will bounce clear across the board and hit the ONLY one of my checkers exposed in GNUB's home panel.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding how to use the settings to create a game that is evenly balanced between me and GNUB. Is there a way to set up a game that is evenly aggressive, (or passive) to GNUB and ME - a game that will stay that way until I want it, and ME! to get more aggressive?

PLEASE HELP, I love the game of backgammon.
