    I agree - but I didn't know the answer, so I suggested what I'd end up doing myself- a "brute force" search.

    This is actually debatable, NimzoRoy told the OP how to answer his own questions, while you are "giving the answer away". In words of a known proverb, you are giving him the fish, while NimzoRoy is telling him how to fish.

    "Asking" is a widely known knowledge-gaining algorithm used by humans.
    Of course "googling" and "rtfming" also can work but often require a lot more effort.

    I'm pretty sure he was aware of those anyways but decided that it wasn't worth his time go after them. So telling him to select an algorithm, which he most likely considered but dismissed is actually wasting your own time without accomplishing the intended result.

    I personally feel that asking a question once in a while often is superior to pretending "I'm the only one alive and thus have to figure it out myself". That neglects the possibilities society as whole can achieve and instead emphasizes ellbow-mentality by representing things as a challenge that actually shouldn't be.

    I personally don't know how to fish. My uncle does. It's called specialization and was "invented" thousand upon thousand years ago.

    Nothing personal but RTFM ...

    ...I'm guessing what you want is an option or feature of whatever program the engine runs in - Arena in your case.  I could be wrong though (the horror...the horror) ...

    In general it never hurts to just start clicking on pull down menus (or whatever Arena has) and look for options - preferences - settings - etc....

     For OP, I can expand on some of that advice, given my many years of experience with Arena.

    Arena's help is pretty good, but like any help file can be frustrating. To get a better understanding of how Arena works, it is indeed a good idea to play around with the menu functions. In the case of configuring engine resignations, one would go into the Engines menu. Go figure!

    If one or more engines have been loaded, then scroll down to Engine 1, Engine 2, etc. Under the Engine x submenu, choose Configure. Each engine will have a unique configuration window, based on the UCI info it has sent to the Arena GUI. Therein will be found the options for engine resignation, among other very useful things.
