I want to make all of this work on any UCI interface. I am basically a unix person so I'm not very clear on certain windows glitches and/or practices. I had forgotten that in windows, the extension to a file is often assumed, this is much less so on unix.

The personality file can have any name and any extension and it is not assumed or put there for you. I use ".per" just as a convention to organize what I'm doing and so that I know at a glance it is a personality file.

Also, the program does not require there to be a personality file and it knows nothing about sample.per. After I put in the personality support in Doch I later made the decision to put in a sample file in the distribution and sample.per was an arbitrary name I made up.

I asked Jim Ablett to make yet another version that has better error checking and sends the info string command to the user interface to reassure the user that the file loaded and also to inform the user of how many parameters were actually loaded (and the total expected.) I don't want to release that version until I know it's right. So if anyone with windows wants to help check it out, assuming Jim is willing to continue to go to the trouble and produces yet another version, let us know.

Alternately, I can give you 32 and 64 bit versions that are compiled with mingw but these compiles are not as fast as the Jim Ablett versions. I'm not sure solving problems with mingw always translates to the JA version.

The 32 bit version 1.3.2 does not work in Vista-32, in Arena 201 or Fritz 10. Apparently, the engine doesn't start it's calculations (no Doch process visible in the Process Explorer). My cpu is Intel D945 (~dual P4).

Version 1.3 works bascially, with the exception that it crashed in Fritz after I removed the filename of a test.per from the engine properties. Can that input field be empty, or does it have to contain "<empty>" if I don't want to specify a custom .per file?

Also, the console mode seems not to work with Doch 1.3/1.3.2 in Vista 32 bit. The console window appears, but does not accept or display any keyboard input. I don't know if this is a missing feature or another bug.

Anyway, thanks to the programmers and compilers! I understand that there is big effort behind it, to make engines run so smoothly as they usually do. From my viewpoint, no need to hurry whatsoever. The price-performance ratio is unrivaled. Mr. Green


The 32 bit version 1.3.2 works fine for me in WinXP and Arena 1.99. The personality filename must be specified as well as the extension, for example "sample.per" or "test.per".
