This is the only pachi.exe that exists for Windows, on a 4-core CPU, Win7, Drago 4.21
When I click to make my move, the board is very slow to show my stone. It also seems like it takes some time after pachi makes the move until the stone actually shows on the table.
The pachi settings are designed to maximize CPU usage: use all cores, think while the opponent is thinking. The CPU is at 100% all the time.

Hey, pachi will max out any cores it uses, try it with 3 threads instead of 4
That way there'll be one core left to service the OS, Drago etc
