Concise view

The concise view gives a very simple uncluttered view of the engine analysis in Analysis Explorer. The engine analysis is presented as Evaluation/Depth Principle-line


These data values are explained below:.

  1. Evaluation in pawns. A positive value is in favour of White and shown in blue, a negative value is in favour of Black and shown in red. For example +1.00 would indicate White is the equivalent of 1 pawn ahead.
  2. Depth of search. This is the depth in half-moves or plies that the engine has searched to. The deeper an engine searches the better its analysis result usually is.
  3. Principle line - This is the expected line of play the engine expects to occur with best play.


You can insert the evaluation, depth and best line of play into the Game Notation by simply clicking the blue evaluation and depth value. Here is an example where the above analysis has been added to the Game Notation pane:


You can see the expected line of play has been added to the Game Notation with the evaluation and depth of search. The evaluation and depth of search is added after the first move of the line so it is clear at which point in the line the evaluation was computed.


With two lines of analysis the concise view looks like this:


You can also copy the best line or all the lines of analysis to the clipboard by right clicking on the analysis pane you get this pop up menu:


Any analysis lines copied are copied with piece letters.
