Thanks for the update! Very significant difference from SCID 4.4 (the last version I had installed). Great stuff!

Is there a way in SCID 4.6.4 to annotate a game and have the user specify what text string SCID uses to say what engine and what time control was being used to produce the analysis?

Example:

I want to use Stockfish to annotate a GM game at 5 secs per move. I can get SCID to put in the engine string saying this: Stockfish 020816 64 BMI2: <and eval goes here>.

I'd like to run the same engine again for analysis but this time use 15 secs per move. It would be nice if I can force the annotator tag to say what I want: Stockfish 020816 @ 5 secs per move: <and eval goes here>. AND, then re-run analysis at 15 secs per move and have the first analysis run results left in the database, but add another line with the 15 secs per move analysis being shown: Stockfish 020816 @ 15 secs per move: <and eval goes here>.

That way, I can see how both the 5 sec and 15 sec per move analysis differs.

I hope what I'm asking is clear.

Thanks!

you can flip the board by pressing the period (".") key or after expanding the icons below the board, you can find it there:

I dont think that is possible. You could duplicate the game and then re-run the analysis

So I'm not missing something that is already possible it seems. I'd like to see this feature added in a future release then!

Wow, it's fast!!

Scid 4.3 took 16 seconds to open my database. Version 4.6.4 takes a second!
