Problem with Arena

Post by mephisto » Fri Feb 01, 2019 8:15 am

When I try to run a tournament in Arena, the games only last for under 20 moves before the games are automatically restarted.

The error appears to be as follows;

LOOPWATCH-MOVE-ABORTED
after very long move time

Has anyone experienced this problem and if so how did you rectify it.

Thanks
Bryan

All the time. In every conversation. You must post. Something. It's like you just can't help yourself.

Hi Guenther
Many thanks.
I did find it myself last night but misread it.
Anyway, did as suggested and it does appear to work although I only had time to test one game.
Regards
Bryan
