Re: Fairy-Stockfish 10.3 released

...... Fairy Stockfish largeboard 10.3 works now on Winboard with HGM's modification but there is another problem now. Fairy Stockfish largeboard 10.3 lost on time in a 5'+3"(5 minutes+3 seconds/move) game. In fact it didn't obey the time control at all! It was a Capablanca random Chess game with a...

Re: Fairy-Stockfish 10.3 released

It seems that WinBoard crashes, which almost by definition is a WinBoard bug. String handling in WinBoard unfortunately is not very robust; it mostly doesn't test for buffer overrun, and just relies on all text buffers being large enough. (Currently set to 512 bytes through the macro MSG_SIZ.) Perh...

Re: Fairy-Stockfish 10.3 released

It is strange that it prints "variants="normal,xiangqi"" in the first line. This should not happen and might potentially cause the problems. In any case, I now uploaded a new version of the UCI2WB adapter: https://github.com/ianfab/uci2wb/releases/tag/v10.3. With this it still crashes in Winboard. ...

Re: Fairy-Stockfish 10.3 released

Can you please try to get the command "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinBoard-AA\WinBoard\WinBoard\UCI2WB.exe 'C:\Program Files (x86)\WinBoard-AA\WinBoard\WinBoard\Stockfish\fairy-stockfish-largeboard_x86-64-modern103.exe" to work on the command line (e.g., some quoting might be missing). It should stay o...

Re: Fairy-Stockfish 10.3 released

This points again towards my initial suspicion that it could be UCI2WB adapter. I am just a bit confused why it did not work after you replaced it by my version of the adapter. Can you please try to call the UCI2WB adapter directly without the "-fUCI" option? I am not entirely sure whether this is ...

Re: Fairy-Stockfish 10.3 released

1. instead of variant capablanca, please try a variant without fairy pieces on an 8x8 board, e.g., crazyhouse or standard chess No matter the variant, or even using normal Chess, the fairy largeboard Stockfish 10.3 crashes Winboard. 2. try the same with the normal (non-large-board) version from the...

Re: Fairy-Stockfish 10.3 released

Which error did you get? When Winboard opens it crashes saying this: https://i.postimg.cc/1mNRwm2w/gjhggj7687688.png The problem might be related to that by "-fUCI" you are using the built-in UCI2WB adapter, which is not able to parse the long variant list. Which was the last Fairy-SF version you u...

Fairy-Stockfish (UCI/USI variant engine) version 10.3 is available: https://github.com/ianfab/Fairy-Stockfish/releases/tag/fairy_sf_10_3 I guess it supports crazyhouse? In this case how is it related to Niklas Fiekas Stockfish which incorporates multivariant changes from Daniel Dugovic? I have this...
