Re: Scid and Scid vs Mac: how to copy analysis output?

Ok - i have changed the right-click mode switching to middle-click. Hopefully this will allow windows to have a "Copy text" context menu. Only taken 10 years to change this silliness, laugh. Re control-a.. this binding is used to add an empty variation and i mightn't change this as it's probably wel...

Re: Scid and Scid vs Mac: how to copy analysis output?

Yeah... this is tested more on linux, but this works on Mac , and should work on windows. Highlight the line/text and press command-c/control-c for copy. You can then select the Edit->PasteVariation feature to add the line. (Edit - you might have to deselect the Options->Moves->Translate pieces thou...

Scid vs. PC - EPD Export feature

I have coded a little EPD export feature which might be useful to Linux/Talkchess gurus Tools->ExportFilter->ExportEPD (Sorry, but it's only in SVN at the moment) This feature runs through the filter, and exports select games to a basic EPD file. Only games with non-standard start positions, or thos...

Re: Simple mate in 6 that gives some engines trouble

Great position. :)
Phalanx and Toga both find it in a short time.. depth 11 or 12.

Re: Fairymax is using 25% of cpu

I would not think 25% cpu ultilisation should noticeably slow your system down.
Perhaps some unusual disk I/O, or some other related thing is the problem.

Re: scid - pgn database size limitation?

I am still extracting one of those gigantic lichess databases out of curiosity. The one I have downloaded (2018/01) probably will be around 35GB! decompressed. Yeah.. the problem is modern PGN files can be so big. I'll just mention my new command line utility sc_filter_pgn.tcl (in 'scripts' in the ...

Re: Stripping a pgn

Anyone knowing of a trick to strip the pgn to just the moves played for both sides? Even better, if this could be done with the whole pgn file. Or, alternatively, does anyone know if there are stripped TCEC pgn files for download somewhere? Thanks, hope someone helps. Using Scid vs PC allows strip ...

Scid vs PC CQL 5.2 feature

Maybe some people here use CQL ? Lionel has written a CQL search feature for Scid vs PC. It's all in subversion, and here's some windows betas. Currently sort feature is unimplemented, but it may be included by 4.19 in a month or two. 32bit: https://sourceforge.net/projects/scidvspc/files/windows-be...

Re: Arena - ChessGUI : activation of the feature reuse/-xreu

ScidvsPC always kills and starts a new instance of the engine for every game. I guess it'd be possible to change this behaviour... and make a 1000 other improvements :) ... but... Actually, it's kindof robust for me at the moment. We've been working on an integrated CQL search feature. There are som...
