Lordb, I was just on FIBS and it shows you logged in yesterday for one minute.  Also I got that same notice when I logged out.  It just means you left FIBS.  Just log back in again and play or stick around a bit.  But you WERE there, if only for 1 minute.

Not sure why you are getting that, but have you tried logging in using a different client other than Fibzilla?  Might be worth a shot.

I got the same error when I tried connecting with my second fibs acc.
- this error appears.

Since 16 hours I can't connect with any acc :( IT'S A FIBSASTER!

With the latest addition of 'Volunteer!' Backgammon Studio now offers 50 different training tracks where each try to cover a different aspect of backgammon play.

Most of these are very difficult so if you want a little less brutal start to your training then a visit to the action training section first is a good idea. Here you can try out problems which starts out with big errors and then you gradually work your way down to smaller errors as you level up.

Be prepared for a lot of surprises and a lot of incorrect answers! Backgammon is easy to play but very difficult to play to perfection! :-)

Training tracks
1Volunteer!Volunteer! Volunteer a directshot or play it safe! Sometimes the answer is surprising!
2Last hope!Last hope! Take a last attempt at avoiding gammon. Worth a try!
3Contact!Contact! Try to maintain contact with your back blots or don't worry about that?
4Midpoint crisis!The midpoint is such a nice point to have! Is this the time to give it up?
5Bulletproof!Your opponent has a stronger board. Hit or just play it safe?
6Greatest hit!You are in bearoff. Is it worth the risk of going for one last hit?
7Anchorman!Hitting is often tempting but sometimes making an achor is the better choice. What to do?
8Mind the gap!Creating a gap in your homeboard may look ugly but perhaps it is worth the risk?
9Demolition man!Destroy your bridge and let your back checkers fend for themselves?
10Bridge builder!Build a bridge to let your back checkers get home safely?
11Gold rush!Go for gold and slot the 5p? How can you resist?
12Thin red line!Sometimes it is difficult to determine if you are good enough to double or not.
13Primer!Extending your prime is very tempting! But perhaps not always correct?
14Too good!Sometimes you miss the target and become too good! Or is it just an illusion?
15Gone fishing!Fishing for that second checker in your opponent board is tempting! Bite or not?
16Last man standing!Opponent is bearing off and you have an ace anchor. Stay or run?
17Safe opening!Safe opening! Play completely safe (no blots) or go for a bit of flexibility?
18First!First move! Practice makes perfect! Beware of score!
19Warrior!Warrior or worrier? Worry about opponent 5p board or hit anyway?
20Race roulette!Break contact and go for the race or wait just one more move?
21Braveheart!Are you brave enough to cube?
22Jumper!Jump a checker instead of hitting.
23Holdup checker!Holding game checker play.
24Holdup!Holding game cube action.
25High five!Make the 5p or not?
26Breakup!Break up prime or not?
27Backend bombshell!Clear from the back or not?
283rd roll checker!3rd roll checker play
29Home improvement!Improve your home board or not?
30Cubed!You have been cubed
31Candlesticks!Stack'em high or not?
32Double trouble!Play a double checker play
33Graveyard!Bury a checker or not?
34Fearless!Leave a blot for direct hit or not?
35Ace Ace baby!Hit on the ace or not?
36Payback!Pay now or later
37Opening reply!Opening replies
38Hitman!Hit 1 or 2 or no hit
39The End!Less than 6 checkers left!
40Checkout!Bearoff checker play

New Forum Software on a new server so there will be some transition and differing layouts and themes. We hope you like it. Very busy at the moment so will sort stuff as and when i can. Enjoy. Not all Links Articles* and Menus complete yet -- please bear with us -- thx stog (Remember Register for the Full Fibsboard photos diagrams articles etc)
*Articles got really mashed in the upgrade so am having to 'fix' each one individually -- so it might take a few months
Tourney Schedule / Re: FIBS Tournament Schedule

A reporter has made the following comment:
The document for the shedule is missing and I depend on it for registering times/start times.Where has it gone ?It has all the information but in an open format.I keep getting a 404 - Attachment Not Found message.This never happened before?

have looked into this and i'm sry i can't find a fix at the moment -- the attachment seems to be on the server with correct permision but can't be accessed -- it might be because of new server security -- it being a m'soft docx -- also i don't think sixty has maintained or updated the doc for many many  years

i recommend you use the google tourney schedule maintained by Tom

major server move done -- pls let me know of any problems bad links etc thx stog

"my main concern when doing this major update has been to preserve all the posts, messages, photos and info from over 14 years and i think we've managed that, but i've had to design a new look, as our old theme was not an option -- i hope you like it -- it has taken a long time to do -- my test site for the upgrade was begun 3 years ago"
Using backgammon software / Extremegammon - Setup position for analysis/rollout
« Last post by simonides on August 06, 2016, 12:38:08 PM »
Hello, a question from someone new to Backgammon and Extremegammon, I've setup a position to complete a rollout to see what is the best response for that dice roll and checker position. The dice colour is opposite and they are on the wrong side of the board from what I want so the checkers go the wrong way!  How can I change the colour of the dice / move them to the other side of the board, and hence ensure that the checkers go the right way round the board for my rollout. It's simple to do in Gnu backgammon as you specify the dice colour when setting the value.
