Re: How to enter TCEC?

Best way is to contact the organizers at tcec discord or at the official website chat.

They probably want to test your engine before the season starts so go to discord and help them set it up.

Re: Lantern Chess an ICC Interface has been removed from Google play. no warning. no real idea why

That happened to me too and I didn't know my app was removed for atleast 5 years! To make matters worse, I lost my private key that I used to sign the app with so I had to submit a new app from scratch. I used the "google sign option" so i won't have this problem again. What I had to do to get it pu...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

Download here . Note that it is an xboard engine. It didn't display the options window when i loaded it in chess for android, but i was able to play with it. It has lots of "feature options" just like uci engines, so you can use it to debug when you support displaying options table for xboard engin...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

Finally got it working with an ancient arm-linux-androideabi-g++ from r12. They are now at r20 so it is pretty old.
What a pain this android compilation is.

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

On the other hand, arm-linux-gnueabi-g++ does not have a problem with c or cpp files and it produces a "binary". However, there are many issues with the scorpio binary produced by it. It runs and exits with errors like below which I don't know where to start debugging from go # rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

Going back to using Android's own NDK clang compiler, I found an issue with compiling c++ codes. C code works fine daniel@dani-s-xp:~$ cat hello.c #include <stdio.h> int main () { puts("hello world"); } daniel@dani-s-xp:~$ arm-linux-androideabi-gcc -pie hello.cpp daniel@dani-s-xp:~$ adb push a.out /...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

Aart, I am not able to load my engines compiled for android in your GUI. I was also not able to run toga-for-android from Michel's website but the robbolito binary works for me. What used to work about 6 years ago for me (last time i tried it) now doesn't seem to work. What has changed since then? I...

Re: Wb2uci adaptor

You didn't say (and maybe the CCC team didn't say) what the issue was. I use cutechess-cli with Winboard protocol all the time, and have had no issues. You can use the -debug flag to cutechess-cli to get all engine output/input logged, which can be helpful in finding engine-specific issues. --Jon I...
