It uses standard Smart Game Format (SGF) files for saving and loading games. You can find a short introduction to Go at \url{http://senseis.xmp.net/?WhatIsGo} and more information about SGF files can be read at \url{http://senseis.xmp.net/?SmartGameFormat} or the SGF specification at \url{http://www.red-bean.com/sgf/}. This plugin can load all modern SGF files (file format 3 or 4) with few problems. It attempts to preserve SGF properties which it doesn't understand, and most common SGF properties are handled fully. It is possible to view (and edit if you like) Kogo's Joseki Dictionary (\url{http://waterfire.us/joseki.htm}) with this plugin, although the load and save times can be on the order of a minute or two on particularly slow devices. Large SGF files may stop audio playback for the duration of the plugin's run in order to free up more memory and some very large SGF files will not even load on devices with little available memory. \emph{Note: } The plugin does \emph{NOT} support SGF files with multiple games in one file. These are rare, but if you have one don't even try it (the file will most likely be corrupted if you save over it). You have been warned. The file \fname {"/sgf/gbn\_def.sgf"} is used by the plugin to store any unsaved changes in the most recently loaded game. This means that if you forget to save your changes, you should load \fname {"/sgf/gbn\_def.sgf"} immediately to offload the changes to another file. If you load another file first then your changes will be lost permanently. The \fname {"/sgf/gbn\_def.sgf"} file is also the file loaded if another is not selected. The information panel which displays the current move number may also contain these markers: \\ \begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{lX}\toprule \textbf{Mark} & \textbf{Meaning} \\ \midrule \emph{+ } & There are nodes after the current node in the SGF tree. \\ \emph{* } & There are sibling variations which can be navigated to using the % \emph{Next Variation} menu option of the \emph{Context Menu}% \opt{SANSA_E200_PAD,SANSA_C200_PAD,SANSA_FUZE_PAD,RECORDER_PAD,% MROBE100_PAD,GIGABEAT_PAD,GIGABEAT_S_PAD,IRIVER_H100_PAD,% IRIVER_H300_PAD}{ or the % \opt{SANSA_E200_PAD,SANSA_FUZE_PAD,SANSA_C200_PAD}{\ButtonRec}% \opt{RECORDER_PAD}{\ButtonOn}% \opt{MROBE100_PAD}{\ButtonPower}% \opt{GIGABEAT_PAD}{\ButtonA}% \opt{GIGABEAT_S_PAD}{\ButtonPlay}% \opt{IRIVER_H100_PAD,IRIVER_H300_PAD}{\ButtonRec} button}. \\ \emph{C } & There is a comment at the current node.

It will be saved to \fname {"/sgf/gbn\_def.sgf"} unless otherwise set. \\ \emph {Save As. } Save to a specified file. \\ \emph {Game Info. } View and modify the metadata of the current game. \\ \emph {Playback Control. } Control the playback of the current playlist and modify the volume of your player. \\ \emph {Zoom Level. } Zoom in or out on the board. If you set the zoom level, it will be saved and used again the next time you open this plugin. \\ \emph {Options. } Open the Options Menu. \\ \emph {Context Menu. } Open the Context Menu which allows you to set play modes and other tools. \\ \emph {Quit. } Leave the plugin. Any unsaved changes are saved to \fname {"/sgf/gbn\_def.sgf"}. \\ \item [Game Info. ] The menu for modifying game info (metadata) of the current game. This information will be saved to the SGF file and can be viewed in almost all SGF readers. \emph {Basic Info. } Shows a quick view of the basic game metadata, if any has been set (otherwise does nothing). This option does not allow editing. \\ \emph {Time Limit. } The time limit of the current game. \\ \emph {Overtime. } The overtime settings of the current game. \\ \emph {Result. } The result of the current game. This text must follow the format specified at \url{http://www.red-bean.com/sgf/properties.html#RE} to be read by other SGF readers. Some examples are \emph {B+R} (Black wins by resignation), \emph {B+5.5} (Black wins by 5.5 points), \emph {W+T} (White wins on Time). \\ \emph {Handicap. } The handicap of the current game. \\ \emph {Komi. } The komi of the current game (compensation to the white player for black having the first move). \\ \emph {Ruleset. } The name of the ruleset in use for this game. The \emph{NZ} and \emph{GOE} rulesets include suicide as a legal move (for multi-stone suicide only); the rest do not. \\ \emph {Black Player. } The name of the black player. \\ \emph {Black Rank. } Black's rank, in dan or kyu. \\ \emph {Black Team. } The name of black's team, if any. \\ \emph {White Player. } The name of the white player. \\ \emph {White Rank. } White's rank, in dan or kyu. \\ \emph {White Team. } The name of white's team, if any. \\ \emph {Date. } The date that this game took place. This text must follow the format specified at \url{http://www.red-bean.com/sgf/properties.html#DT} to be read by other SGF readers. \\ \emph {Event. } The name of the event which this game was a part of, if any. \\ \emph {Place. } The place that this game took place. \\ \emph {Round. } If part of a tournament, the round number for this game. \\ \emph {Done. } Return to the previous menu. \\ \item [Options. ] Customize the behavior of the plugin in certain ways. \emph {Show Child Variations? } Enable this to mark child variations on the board if there are more than one. Note: variations which don't start with a move are not visible in this way. \\ \emph {Disable Idle Poweroff? } Enable this if you do not want the \dap{} to turn off after a certain period of inactivity (depends on your global Rockbox settings). \\ \emph {Idle Autosave Time. } Set the amount of idle time to wait before automatically saving any unsaved changes. These autosaves go to the file \fname {"/sgf/gbn\_def.sgf"} regardless of if you have loaded a game or used \emph {Save As} to save the game before or not. Set to \emph {Off} to disable this functionality completely. \\ \emph {Automatically Show Comments? } If this is enabled and you navigate to a node containing game comments, they will automatically be displayed. \\ \item [Context Menu. ] The menu for choosing different play modes and tools, adding or editing comments, adding pass moves, or switching between sibling variations. \emph {Play Mode. } Play moves normally on the board. If there are child moves from the current node, this mode will let you follow variations by simply playing the first move in the sequence. Unless it is following a variation, this mode will not allow you to play illegal moves. This is the default mode before another is set after loading a game or creating a new one. \\ \emph {Add Black Mode. } Add black stones to the board as desired. These stones are not moves and do not perform captures or count as ko threats. \\ \emph {Add White Mode. } Add white stones to the board as desired. These stones are not moves and do not perform captures or count as ko threats. \\ \emph {Erase Stone Mode. } Remove stones from the board as desired. These removed stones are not counted as captured, they are simply removed. \\ \emph {Pass. } Play a single pass move. This does not change the mode of play. \\ \emph {Next Variation. } If the game is at the first move in a variation, this will navigate to the next variation after the current one. This is the only way to reach variations which start with adding or removing stones, as you cannot follow them by "playing" the same move. \\ \emph {Force Play Mode. } The same as Play Mode except that this mode will allow you to play illegal moves such as retaking a ko immediately without a ko threat, suicide on rulesets which don't allow it (including single stone suicide), and playing a move where there is already a stone. \\ \emph {Mark Mode. } Add generic marks to the board, or remove them. \\ \emph {Circle Mode. } Add circle marks to the board, or remove them. \\ \emph {Square Mode. } Add square marks to the board, or remove them. \\ \emph {Triangle Mode. } Add triangle marks to the board, or remove them. \\ \emph {Label Mode. } Add one character labels to the board. Each label starts at the letter 'a' and each subsequent application of a label will increment the letter. To remove a label, click on it until it cycles through the allowed letters and disappears. \\ \emph {Add/Edit Comment. } Add or edit a comment at the current node. \\ \emph {Done. } Go back to the previous screen. \\ \end{description}
