Re: Can nobody compile Roden IV?

And this time also with the book files. Indeed, one needs to set the UCI options for these with absolute path. So in the personality file, change setoption name GuideBookFile value strangler.bin setoption name MainBookFile value rodent.bin to (using your own path of course if you have something else...

Re: Can nobody compile Roden IV?

Can you send me the peter.txt please? I can debug this a bit more for you. Thanks for the sample file, Peter. If you set the option "Verbose" to true, you get some more feedback. In this case (and by looking at the modified sources), you will have to set up an absolute path. See my debug sessions b...

The engine works fine for me with some simple testing, but I will run a small tournament and see what happens.
Even with some more testing, minic runs fine for me in Chess for Android. If you see specific issues, please send me more details.

Re: Can nobody compile Roden IV?

I just noticed a small but embarrassing bug in CfA where the "default.txt" is parsed as ".txt" due to assuming "default" belongs to the UCI option syntax, so I wo...

What is the best free chess program for Android such as Samsung Galaxy S8+? A free chess program that allowed you to set up position and also let you play both sides of the board not just always against the engine? And what would the rating be approximately with Samsung S8+ ? May I suggest my own C...
