New and deleted properties
Please note that values given for keys (PI, OT, etc.) are just for
illustration and can/should be discussed. Should they be verbose
(e.g. "referee" instead of "RF")?
Properties no longer part of FF5
These are just suggestions!
- ON (opening) ... seldom used, info could be stored in GC
- US (user) ... info could be stored in new FF5 property IP
- AN (annotations) ... info could be stored in new FF5 property IP
Note: OT is not really new, but completely redefined.
Propvalue: number (range: number >= 1)
Function: Undo a number of nodes. The number is given in the
property value. Undoing has the same effect as if the
undone nodes would have never been executed. It is similar
to the user stepping back in the SGF tree.
See examples for further explanation.
B, W, and UN properties must not be mixed within a node.
Propvalue: list of ( composition of simpletext ":" simpletext )
Function: Provides information about other persons (or
organizations) involved in the game. The first value is
used as key. Following keys are recommended:
"Color" ... player of color (e.g. black, white). This
information is usually stored into PB, PW.
In team games IP should be used to record
names of each player in the team.
Multi-player games can list the players here.
"Colora" ... assistant to player color, e.g. person who
enters the move into a client program during an
"RF" ... chief referee
"RFa" ... assistant referee

Propvalue: list of ( composition of simpletext ":" ext_color ":" real )
Function: Describes the method used for overtime (byo-yomi) in
a machine readable way. The simpletext value is used
as key, the ext_color value contains for which player
(color) this setting is valid, and the real value
contains the setting itself.

periods are added before a time-out).
Value is number of periods, with following
special values: 0 ... no overtime period
-1 ... unlimited periods
Default value: -1
"OG" ... granularity of extended time - value is
in seconds. This means that the time
recorded is calculated as follows:
time_rec = INT(time_used / ogran) * ogran
INT means that only the integer part of the
division is taken. Default value: 1.0
"TG" ... granularity for basic time
Default value: 1.0
