Re: Banksia GUI released

When creating a Polyglot book, we need to compute and assign a score for each move in the book. The popular method is to count numbers of game wins, draws and losses of that move then sum up them with their factors. score_of_a_move = win x win_factor + draw x draw_factor + loss x loss_factor For de...

Re: Question to opening books builder

The easiest and quickest way is to edit weights/scores of an existing book. Chess GUIs/chess engines will select moves based on their scores, after comparing them with scores of other moves (that are from the same positions). Modify scores of moves on the lines you want to higher values, the others ...

Re: Banksia GUI released

There are still more bugs to work out, The PGNs are not updating even when ticked to do so. It is a bit tricky here: if BSG detects PGN is a multi-games it won't auto-update.

Re: Banksia GUI released

Thank you very much for the logo. I love its simplicity and strong blocks/areas.
Just a bit confused about its beauty/art but don't know what exactly I want and/or how to fix it.
