Low ELO engines for arm64

Although the Coach function is nice for us newbies, I prefer to use low ELO engines and reduce the ply depth if necessary to reduce the strength even further. As tutor, I use Stockfish 10 to analyse positions and understand why some of my moves were actually bad moves or as a kibitzer... Some low EL...

Coach levels

I was wondering how the coach levels work. In other chess apps, it seems that lower levels tend to make more frequent obvious blunders. In pbchess, I noticed blatant blunders up to level 3.

Re: pbchess-1.2.5 - testing

I just noticed a bug I was going to log has been fixed. It was related to a problem for which the solution was not recognized in the previous build.

Re: pbchess-1.2.5 - testing

Re: pbchess-1.2.5 - testing

I just tried the first one. I guess that every time I find a solution I have to go back to the beginning and try to find the next solution. But I did not see the message "solved" when I found both...
