CgfGoBan is a Go GUI program for Windows XP/10/11.
Go Engine is provided by DLL, and GTP. You can run your original go engine by replacing DLL or setting GTP.
GTP is more useful.
CgfGoBan has SGMP(Standard Go Modem Protocol) via RS-232C(COM port).
SGMP protocol has been used many Computer Go tournaments like a Computer Olympiad.
And CgfGoBan has NNGS protocol via TCP/IP. NNGS protocal has been used in Gifu Challenge 2004.
You can enter these tournament easily by using CgfGoBan.
And CgfGoban is a open source program and I don't insist any Copyright.
You can modify freely.

Set gnugo.exe full path. For example, if gnugo.exe is put
set like this,
c:\go\gnugo\gnugo.exe --mode gtp --never-resign
--mode gtp means running GnuGo via GTP.
--never-resign means doing not resign.
And "Play" "Start Game", select "Computer(GTP)".
If you check "Use Gnugo in Life and Death View", you can use GnuGo's life-and-death status.
But if you push life-and-death button in middle game, GnuGo will think very long time.
You should use when after two pass.
