Which engine do you use?
Other than the author of the book, nobody will be able to tell the correct settings.
Even if someone tells the settings, it may not be give best results.
But generally speaking for book randomization, keep it minimum to be safe especially if you want draws and avoid losses.
If the book is strong and if you feel lucky, then increase it as you may like but not very good idea.
(Eg. If VIrat tries a new shot at every new ball, he may succeed but it may also get him out! Similarly if one increases book randomness, the chances of losing increases especially if the book is not tuned properly or tuned at all.)
I believe this feature is similar to the feature of variety of play
in Fritz GUI. In Fritz, many books have the value of 50 as variety of play.
For book depth, consider a well, it has a certain depth below which one cannot go. Similarly for book depth,
it is the maximum number of moves book can play, after that engine starts playing. Generally the man who digs the well knows the exact specific value of the depth of the well. Similarly, in case of book, the author knows it the exact value. Move limit
I guess is the book depth, that you wish the book to move. After that limit (number of moves), the engine starts playing.
For a book if you do not know the book depth, you have two good options:
a. Set it maximum (I choose this option, keep it 100)
b. Set any value between 10 to 40.(This is also a good alternative.)
Either way it will be good.
