Auto-play with Opening Books

Once you have at least one opening book imported, you can use it for auto-play.

This is often used in order to help the engine diversify its openings, since engines on their own will usually play the same openings over and over.


First, make sure the book you want to use for auto-play is selected as the main book to use for Analysis. You can do this by going to Gameplay > Analysis and selecting the book you want to use.

Note: the book you select here will also be the one that the arrows on the screen will be drawn for.

Afterwards, go to Gameplay > Autoplay and choose one of the following options

  • Random book move, otherwise top engine move
  • Random book move, otherwise random engine move
