Re: Fairy-Stockfish 10.3 released

OK, I made an attempt. I could not reproduce the case where Windows actually informs me through a popup that WinBoard had crashed. But when I tried to load Fairy-Stockfish 10.3, WinBoard was just hanging waiting for the engine to be loaded. It was still sensitive to a 'quit' signal, though. When I ...

Re: Fairy-Stockfish 10.3 released

Of course it can, because the list of supported variants of course got longer. That is why I asked you to try the non-large-board version of 10.3, because that one roughly has the same number of supported variants as the large-board version of 10.2. I just wanted to make sure that the bug definitel...

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: (Some Winboard HELP?? HGM!!)

The output looks perfectly fine, so apparently Fairy-Stockfish is working well with the adapter. Please make sure that the command you are using in Winboard calls the adapter in the same way as you do it via the command line, because my only explanation is that this is not the case, otherwise WinBo...

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. ...

Cutechess GUI supports many of the SF Fairy supported variants. I recommend that with fairy stockfish.
But no analysis option which is critical.

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...
