Choosing random number generator

If checked, uses the random number generator that was used in Four Winds versions up to 2.09. Versions from 2.10 up to
2.10g used the new advanced random number generator that produces statistically better randomness. Versions starting from
2.10h let the user specify whether to use the old random number generator, or the new one. The default value is that the
new random number generator is used in all new games. In loaded games the default of the version of the loaded game will
be used.

To specify the kind of random number generator to be used in new games:

  1. Choose Preferences on the File menu.
  2. Choose Gameplay under the User Interface section in the category tree of the Preferences dialog box.
  3. Check or clear the Old random generator box.
