Wait, you're talking about the "Engine Output" window... So there is
no way to get absolute scores in the analysis bar in _the main

I checked the "Engine Output" window (I don't normally use it) and
that one does show absolute scores, so if that's what the options are
supposed to do, it works fine. This isn't what I want though. I need
absolute scores in the main window.
