Update the komi to modern standards

Post by KensaiK » 29 January 2020, 17:04

Is there any way to update the komi of 19x19 to what is normally used in modern games? 6.5 is the currently agreed upon value, 4.0 would be considered too beneficial for black.

The closest is probably, if you choose "Simple Game" / "Manual", then when you "Create a new table", there is an option "Big komi" under "Table Configuration".

This doesn't work in "Arena" mode.

Sure there should be normal komi on Arena too, 6.5 for Jp and 7.5 for Chinese rules if they are used.

Since this is implementing AGA rules, komi should be 7.5 for 19x19. Given that white wins ties, selecting Big Komi should do it. It does seem like that should be the case for arena games also.
