Re: Did anyone write a xiangqi chess engine?

I wish I could have some Arena equivalent for xiangqi, preferably under linux. Do you know any xiangqi GUIs like that? There is a pending PR by gaintpd for Xiangqi support in cutechess github repo. https://github.com/gaintpd/cutechess/tree/xiangqi https://github.com/cutechess/cutechess/pull/565 The...

Sure, you can have your opinion. But at the end of the day Marco Costalba decides :)

Re: Position Causes Stockfish and Komodo To Crash

The GUI writers will tell you it is the responsibility of the engine or the user to detect bad data. I consider myself a GUI writer. UCI spec is clear enough here I think. In https://www.pychess.org/editor/chess the user input is the position they construct. I never thought it is not my responsibil...

Re: Position Causes Stockfish and Komodo To Crash

Re: Chess variants made with help from alpha zero article

As a lover of chess variants myself, I greatly enjoyed this paper. The selection of variants is not exactly the one I would have made, but they do all have the advantage of being playable with a normal chess set: No fairy pieces or differently shaped boards are required. My favorite of those varian...
