Re: Banksia GUI released

Thanks for the new preview version!

(intended?) Thanks for the report! However, I can't re...

Re: For under the Christmas tree?

It's a complex opening, and complex means that the better player is more likely to come out on top in the end, but evidence is that black is at a clear disadvantage out of the opening. Sort of. The KID has always been one of those "horizon" openings which isn't very useful to analyze with computers...

I know others have asked for logos and I am okay with that for sure, however I would be content with just simple flags.

You could always just make the logo of each engine their flag if you like. :lol: :wink:

Re: Banksia GUI released

No, it'd just check if it's already set up to set a default image, just so people that already did it for Fritz don't need to do anything to get a logo for their engine. Sure. Arena already does this. If it finds a .BMP file with the same name as the exe, it assigns it automatically. But if there i...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Probably auto-detect if there's a .BMP file with the engine name on the folder so people that already set their engines in the Fritz GUI are set up, but allow users to change it when installing the engine.

Q: Are there (semi) standards about icons/logos on: - sizes - image types (png, gif, jpeg)? - names (same names with their engines)? - paths (same folders with their engines...

Re: Women World Fischer Random Championship 2019 Next Month in USA

Note: At this moment China is trying to negotiate a better deal to have the WWFRC celebrated in China instead :roll: Why the eye rolling? American women chessplayers haven't given decent competition to the Chinese women for decades. No matter how many strong East Europeans you import. :lol: Or is i...
