Re: Official Release of OliThink 5.7.5 including a Java-GUI

Since OlIThink 5.8.4 it's genereally not possible to Ponder, Analyze or Interrupt the Search with any ChessGUI in Windows . The cause is a change in the method to peek a key input, which seems not to be working for Chess Graphical Interfaces like Arena or Winboard. Linux and MacOSX work correctly. ...

Re: Official Release of OliThink 5.7.5 including a Java-GUI

Thank you. Actually I could need your help, because on my mac there is no Arena and with Xboard this bug is not reproducible. My first guess is, that it has nothing to do with the time control. It's probably a bug in the transition from book moves to calculation. Have you tried other time controls ...

Re: Official Release of OliThink 5.7.5 including a Java-GUI

I am seeing consistent time forfeit with 5.8.7 where OliThink plays a few moves and then times out while searching without making another move. I am using Arena 3.5.1 on Windows 10 playing tournament games at 5+1 seconds. The previous version I was using is 5.8.0 and it works very well. I see in th...

Re: Clericus/Hopeless ported to Lazarus

To get a sense of its strength, I had Hopeless 0.49.0.4 play 10 games each against AdaChess 3.6 and MadChess 2.2 at 2'+6"" and it had 4 wins and 4 ties against AdaChess but it lost all of the other games on time forfeit. Too bad too as it can hold its own against MadChess in a few games until it for...

Re: Clericus/Hopeless ported to Lazarus

Here is the Windows 0.49.0.4 build with the latest changes and it has the Hopeless (xboard) and Clericus (gui) executable inside. I'll work on the Mac build soon. I tested it in Arena with time control of 5"+1" and it works now. https://1drv.ms/u/s!Aqe2-2i2H5hetEra1f4-8bfCT52y?e=GXnNZ7 Just a small ...

Re: Clericus/Hopeless ported to Lazarus

Please let me know if you want me to do another build with the changes for time control. Should I also post a Clericus build while I am at it? I also have Lazarus installed on a MacOS laptop here so I will also try to make a Mac build but I will need to install a chess GUI to test it before I post i...

Re: Clericus/Hopeless ported to Lazarus

Here is a Windows build and I packaged it like your Linux one. https://1drv.ms/u/s!Aqe2-2i2H5hetEWTv45LeAc9TkbV?e=K4wNmb Thanks for the tip on the debug build. As soon as I ran that and I looked at the wbunit.log file I could see the problem. I had set the time control in Arena to Blitz with base of...
