Re: [Bug-gnubg] Can't redouble / doubling cube missing

Hi Steve,


It is probably due to the match score.


The Crawford rule says you can’t redouble in the first game after the opponent reaches 1 away from winning. E.g. at 4-1 in a 5-point match.


Gnubg will also roll automatically when the cube is “dead”, that is, when it is high enough to win the match for you already. For example, a 2-cube at 5-2 in a 7-point match.


Hope this helps.

I'm running 1.05.000 on an Ubuntu desktop.   gnubg is highly entertaining, however, I'm mystified and frustrated by two things:


1.  The doubling cube fails to appear in some games.


2.  Other times when I own the cube, gnubg automatically rolls my dice without giving me the opportunity to redouble.


Can someone tell me why this happens?


Many thanks!
