So it seems that the server is supposed to automatically pair you with
others, right? Is this the correct way to set it up?

engine=iomrascalai-0.1.7 -r chinese -t 8 -e amaf -p no-eyes
room=Computer Go

The bot connects just fine according to the server according to the log
output but then stops at "FINER: No games to join. Starting automatch.". Do
I just have to wait or is there something else I can or should do? Also,
how do I make the bot appear at the top of the list in the computer go room
as being open to play?
