This tends to be a real issue. Also, would be better to see a whole branch or two to see why that move is good so we can confidence with the deep learning instead of blind belief. I do like that I can challenge a specific human strength instead of a scale of 1 to ten. Would also like it better if I can move through moves with a scroll instead of buttons, takes a while to get to the middle game.
Easy to use interface, with a nice 'rating' mode where you can see your progress. It's also the strongest AI commercially available on Android, far stronger than I am able to play at! I hope that any engine improvements that Remi makes to the main version of crazystone are pushed through to this app as patches/updates as it was quite expensive.
My only complaint is the cumbersome UI. Why do I have to save a game, and exit to another mode, then reload the game just to run an analysis? And then save again or lose the analysis? Then exit, back to another mode just to play again? This seems easy to streamline, but for some reason, they chose not to.
I'm starting to like this app a lot. Some reviews are misleading: you can actually load any SGF file in the analysis mode, as well as save any game in the sdcard. You just need to know the folder where they are saved or from where the app reads the files. Tip: when saving a game, the app will show you the exact folder path ;)
I like this program, but it's definitely not the claimed 5d in strength, unless using some very generous scale; I'm a rusty 3d on IGS, and even I was able to beat it by over 30 points on my first attempt, without trying that hard. It also seems to have trouble knowing when to resign, dragging on a lost game for ages, playing lots of moves to try to save a dead group in my territory, long after it fight was well and truly over. Still, it looks nice and was still fun to play against. If it gets stronger and better at knowing when a game is lost, I'll gladly increase my score.
AI is VERY STRONG. It's about 3 stones stronger than Champion Go, its previous version. But it does crash sometime. Can't analyze games in rating mode even after game is over.
Made few improvements of the Analysis Mode.
