First off, although not intuitive you can set the default settings for player strength that appear on the new match window by going to the "Settings" menu, select "Players". What you set in these options becomes the defaults for the new match page.

As for the graying out of the options on the new match window, this will occur when a player is selected as human. This is by design since a human plays at whatever level they are. The skill level only applies to the GNUBG bot players. If you have the bot play against itself you could set different play levels for each player.

Player 0 is always the player on top, so it is usually recommended to set them to the bot, and player 1 to a human.

If you are using Tutor mode (Which you didn't mention), for help on your plays, then GNUBG takes those settings from the options present under the "Settings" menu, "Analysis..." item and then on the right side of the window you can select the eval/tutor level. Usually you put a check mark by the "Same as analysis" and then in the list box to the left of that under "analysis level" set the skill level there.

If you are analysing matches and do so with the "analyse" menu and use "analyse match or session"/"analyse game" those settings come from the "analysis level" option on the window mentioned previously.

I'm using GNU Backgammon 0.90-mingw 20121023 on Win 7 Pro 64 bit.

Each time I start a new game, the Player setting revert to GNUB -
Intermediate, User (moi - JB) - Expert.

Under Settings/Players The window ALWAYS comes up with GNUB (Computer)
"Intermediate", ME - Player "Expert".

All the Player" options are greyed out, including Player "Expert".

To get Player set to "Intermediate", I have to Click the Unchecked spot for
"Computer", then change Player setting to "Intermediate", then click Click
"Computer" to change the player back to "Intermediate", which re-greys out the
"Player" settings.

I can play a 7 game game, but as soon as I start a new game, GNUB re-sets back
to GNUB "Intermediate, Player "Expert".

How can I PERMANENTLY set both payers to the SAME level of Play, regardless of
what level I wish to play?
