Creating and managing custom rule presets

Customizing a rule preset

You can customize any of the pre-defined rule presets.

To customize a rule preset:

  1. Quit an on-going game, if applicable.
  2. Choose Preferences on the File menu.
  3. From the Rule Presets list at the top of the Preferences dialog box, select a rule preset you wish to customize.
  4. From the Rule Presets, choose "Customized". This makes all options available for editing.
  5. Make the desired changes to the rules.
  6. If you wish to save the changes to a user-defined rule preset, click the small arrow button on the left of the Rule Presets list and choose Save as New Preset from the pop-up menu.
    - OR -
    If you want to use the customized setting without creating a user-defined preset, just click OK to close the Preferences dialog box. The settings are saved in the system registry so they are retained between sessions, and you can edit them later. But you lose the customized settings if you select any other rule preset from the Rule Presets list or in the New Game dialog box. If you want to make sure that you do not lose your customized settings, always save them as a user-defined rule preset.

Note: Top 20 tables and statistics cannot be used with customized, non-saved rules. If you wish to use these features, you should save your customized rule preset as a user-defined preset.
