I swapped the players around so that reds home is on top, and black is
on the bottom. I click the "new" button to start a new match. Made sure
"Manual Dice" was selected. I clicked the modify player button on the
new match box. I set player 0 as a human and player 1 as a bot. I click
the "Ok" button. Now I am back at the New match window. AT this point of
course you do NOT click "GNUBG Backgammon vs Human" as you want to
retain the settings you just made. "Current player settings" is what it
should be at and what it should have been set to when you clicked okay
from the modify player settings screen.

With that being said. I click "Ok" and select a set of red dice for me
(the human). I am then able to play the humans moves. Which is what
should happen.

The only thing I can think of is that after you modified the player
settings and hit "Ok" you went back and clicked "GNUBG Backgammon vs
Human". Doing that will make the human player 1 and the bot player 0
(which undoes the changes you just made)

I'm also assuming you are using the latest version 20121023? You cna
find out by going to the Help Menu, About GNUBG, build Info. The version
is on the top line.
