Some more questions, I had:

- Roughly, how many games does it take to advance from one level to the next ? (e.g. from 3d to 4d)

- There is a green button to start a game, but what is the purple button for. (i.e. the one on the right of it) ?

Thank you in advance.

A 16-2 as a 1D got me to 3D
Next a 22-17 as 3D got me to 4D

I tried a tool where you can draw chinese characters and it will translate them. It translates to "A dry ..." and then something.
Google translate also has the feature. It yields "One thousand ...". Again the last character is hard to find.

Maybe a bet of 1000?

1. Fox works on a win X out of your last Y games to go up 1 or 2 ranks system, where X and Y vary based on your rank. You can see how many games you personally need to win/lose on your user info to promote/demote, the green and red up down arrows with number of games. (Below is 12 wins up 1 rank, 16 wins up 2 ranks, 13 losses down 1, 17 losses down 2).

Click 'Ranked Game Rules' button to see the rules across the ranks.

2. Assuming you mean the purple button with text '一子千金' it's a special game mode in which captures count for double points, to encourage killing. See forum/viewtopic.php?p=238734#p238734

P.S. Knotwilg, rather than drawing I take a screenshot and online OCR e.g. http://www.i2ocr.com/free-online-chines ... tional-ocr

Anyone know how to change your country on the Fox Go Server? I just happen to use a computer with Japanese OS and it defaults me to Japan as country... :scratch: Would like to change to Canada...

Did anyone try the android client?

With i2ocr and google translate you can probably figure out how to navigate the chinese interface.

I have played on the Android client. If I recall correctly, the two login methods available are QQ and WeChat, so if you want to share an account between PC and Android, you need to be playing on PC via a QQ account, and use QQ to login on Android.

I installed the english client and played my first games. But there is an issue:
While the client loads, button text is displayed in English (Automatch, create room etc.). But as soon as it's finished loading, display changes to chinese characters.

Anybody knows a way around this?

I just hit that big green button for automatch, I don't think the other buttons are very important. Most of the client should still be in English, is it not?

Nope, same here. But I don't bother. I hit the green button to play. The rest have to do with betting and that doesn't interest me.
