Well this program works fantastic... when it works.

So I was just chugging along. All of a sudden a couple of projects started hanging on minimaxing.
So I got to looking at the folder structure in ATrees>Idea

I see a lot of duplicates, $ signs and 'LEMON'. What does all this mean? Any ideas to get it sorted?

No clue.  Never seen it.  But I am still on Aquarium 2017, so could be a change or new bug.

In the past minimax has been known to get hosed up when trying to push too many evals per second thru the program.  Kind of like the I/O on the back-end couldn't keep up with the thruput.  And I know that recently I have been pushing the envelop.  I just finished up working a project where I pushed thru  more than 200k evals in about 18 hours real time.  Which is quite a lot for me.

Don't know if this has anything to do with your problem or not, just a wild observation.

I think the lemons etc are temporary files produced during minimaxing. Seems you may have a corrupted tree. You can use the Verify tab in the Tree window to check the tree and recover if necessary.

$ Values occur when working with a tree during analysis. After minimax, they usually disappear. If you have any doubts, you should conduct further analysis with 2-3 minimaxima. And if these values are not lost, you need to check the project and restore. Be sure to hold a new minimax. Next, I usually delete 2 or 3 $ values, and this does not affect the health of the project.
