I am using
Stockfish-222-64-ja-intel. It thinks about 50 moves deep and heats up my laptop processor. All I was interested in, was a depth of about 12-13 moves and for the best line to be shown on the top. I am not able to find the options to configure the gui is such a manner. Let me know if you have an answer.
Update: I know how to limit the level for computer strength. That's plain - it's
Levels>>Adjust>>Fixed Search Depth>>8 half moves. The problem still persists though. When I click the
Analyze button, the computer starts thinking really deep (and yes, the heating problem is a bit irritating and drains the battery).
8 half movesmeans from 8 moves for each side. if you want 12-13 moves, reduces it to Levels>>Adjust>>Fixed Search Depth>>
6 half moves.
