Post subject:  Tygem: How is one supposed to designate the dead stones?

I have played over 200 games on Tygem seldom with any problem during the counting (well, sometimes I’m unhappy that I lost :-). Recently, at the end of games, after I have passed, I have started getting a message to designate the dead stones. Well, on the Japanese Panda board, this is the norm. Panda shows which stones are in question and you and your opponent mark the dead ones. With Tygem I don’t get a screen to mark the dead stone, nor can I use the game screen to mark the dead stones. I don’t see any evidence that my opponent has marked my dead stones.
In my most recent game the score was close (I was ahead 4.5 with a Chinese 7D player). I was repeatedly asked to designate dead stones; on Tygem I don’t know how to designate them. Between requests to designate, Tygem would ask me if I agreed with the scoring, which I would agree. Apparently, my opponent wouldn’t. After several cycles of these requests to designate dead stones & agree to the score, my opponent agreed.

Hi!
playing on Tygem also, i think scoring is an automatic feature and just needs you to validate.
Maybe your opponent was not happy about the scoring.
Some players can do this on purpose to make you lose by time...

In my most recent game, at the end we both passed. The game was scored showing I was ahead, but my opponent disagreed. Then we started getting the message "Process: Counting has now stated. Please designate the dead stones."
As I stated in my original post on this subject, I do not see how to mark my opponent's dead stones, nor did I see where s/he was marking my dead stones.
We went around perhaps 3 or 4 times before I killed 147, 149, and 227. Since I had comfortable margin, I secured the win. In a closer game, forcing me to play unnecessary stone into my territory could have cost me or an opponent a deserved win.
How do you designate the dead stones on Tygem?
