What is active position ?
The active position is position with direct attack
(as open row with length 3 in five-to-row games)
But number of active positions can not be more than some number.
This number is different for the first two levels of search and for other levels.
User can change these numbers
How does changing the numbers for active positions affect the play ?
The computer play much stronger when it use active positions.
The numbers for active positions affect on level of analysis.
Increasing these numbers can help you to find solution some puzzles.
- But if you set number moves for active position too big
- the computer would think on each move too long time
- or if you set max time limit for move
- the computer would analyse only limited number of moves
and quality of playing goes down.
