Re: New release: rofChade 2.1

Just noticed this post containing some issues regarding PyChess can't install rofChade.
This is because PyChess fails to parse the invalid(!) option line rofChade emits:

option name SyzygyProbeDepth type spin default default 0 min 0 max 127

Notice the 2x "default"!

Re: Chess for Android: version 6.1.1

Seems there is some interest on using Chess for Android with DGT + lichess.org also. https://lichess.org/forum/general-chess-discussion/use-of-dgt-boards-on-lichessorg The only problem(?) that DGT usage on lichess have to use BOT API, so you can't play with your normal account if you use it. https:/...

Re: Chess for Android: version 6.1.1

Just let you know that PyChess has FICS (block mode) and ICC (datagram style protocol) support at https://github.com/pychess/pychess/tree ... pychess/ic
Feel free to borrow any code/ideas from there :)

Re: Chess for Android: FICS client in alpha

Unfortunately FICS (and ICC also) is slowly dying as it loses users to more modern chess servers. Just take a look at https://www.ficsgames.org/stats.html year by year. I myself playing on lichess.org in latest years. It's getting better and better because it is open source and developed actively at...

Re: Elements of the ULTIMATE Chess GUI?

Yes, I looked, we really can not save the state of the process easily. Therefore, we can extend the standards of UCI and Winboard. We introduce 2 commands to save the transposition table and restore. Teams should simply save the table, which they themselves will be able to restore on command. Andsc...

Re: You lost to a cheater

Carlsen played a cheater on C24 banter blitz. He was suspicious when it ended, but moved on casually. "What can I say, they played very well for for hes rating (2100)".

Re: You lost to a cheater

I see this regularily, maybe once in two or three weeks. My lichess rating flatters around 2250 currently, which is extremly bad considering that i am an FM. Back in the days, when programs like Fritz or Shredder dominated, you could spot a cheater in an instant, because they would flood you with i...

Re: PGN - Comment including the } char

Ahh, I see the "problem" now. Telling the truth all choices suggested by Fulvio are unacceptable IMO. My suggested choices if user wants to type "{this is a } right brace comment}" in comment editor: 1. Enable typing }. When you parse such .pgn just parse it as spec say: "this is a " 2. Enable typin...

Re: PGN - Comment including the } char

"There is a problem with comments containing right brace } characters."
I see no problem here. Can you explain this a bit, please?

Re: fast(er) movegen

It would be very kind if you can put these sources to a github repo.
