The Chessmaster 9000 auto-annotator gives a table of statistics when has completed its analysis. I wonder if anyone could tell me what total error and relevant error mean and how these are calculated, please? I can figure out the Agreement % easily enough, but the values given for the errors don't seem to be as simple. Is it anything to do with errors in terms of material value?

Thanks,

Dave

Here's my explanation:

The total error is the sum between chessmasters and your move, counted in pawns (1 pawn = 1.00). Then there's a threshold (I have never found out how big this is and can't find it on the net either) where chessmaster can disagree with some move(s), though the score difference is not counted in the total error.

The relevant error isn't counting errors made by white or black anymore once the game is considered lost or won. That is, when one player is behind by 5.00 in material and with no counterplay what so ever. Plus the relevant error can only be less or the same as the total error.

Thanks guys, that seems to make some sense.
