Hi Ad,


Do you have the match file this came from?


When I paste that reference into gnubg I get a score of 2-0 in an unlimited match, no Jacoby, bottom player to roll or double. Is this not what you expected?


Perhaps you are using Save As … Position? This is not recommended: it literally saves only the position, with no match details. This is a very old and little-used feature of gnubg, and has caused trouble before.


I recommend that you save the whole match, or at least the game.




Is it possible to make Save As … Position work as users expect? I.e. the whole position and match id are saved. If not, perhaps gnubg ought to offer a warning, or remove the feature.

Hi Ian,

I am not sure whether it is only relevant for me. I put every few days a problem that I have encountered on the forum. I save a series of codes (eg. Position ID: 4NvgAyCw58IBMA Match ID: cAkAAAAAEAAE)  and when I have a sufficient number of them I make a selection of which are worth posting. There have been quite a few which were not useful anymore, because when entering them in Gnu Backgammon (ctrl+v) the dicenumbers were changed. Maybe it has to do with Ubuntu.

Regards, Ad van de Pol

Hi Ads, 
Please could you give a bit more detail, or perhaps some examples. I don't recognize the terminology you are using.
What do you mean by "codes"? 
How are you "reusing" the dice numbers?

Dear sir,
I have been saving codes in a file, however, the dice numbers of several of
them have changed when reusing them. I like to add that I am using ubuntu.
