Re: Scid vs. PC 4.16

Those 64 base encoded files are pretty awful. In subversion, I have added support for custom gifs. Here's the new help page. Custom gifs can be placed into a "photos" directory beneath the user dir. They should preferably be 100x100, with the file name being the same as the player it portrays. Eg - ...

Scid vs. PC 4.16

Re: Object model for chess GUI?

Yes, from recollection, wx is pretty low level. But i liked what i've seen.. and it seems quite underused. Java is big too, is it. Well - another reason to stay away from it :) I quite love tcls smooth functional programming style. I mean - everything is a string - more or less. S.A. wrote - It'd ma...

Re: Object model for chess GUI?

In XBoard the games is stored as an array of positions. No Way! No wonder it is such a ... beast. :) It'd make handling variations alot easier. Steve - I'd start by cutting up Scidb, which has a great OO foundation, but C++ of course. Rewrite the GUI in it. But you are crazy of course. Just give Gr...

Re: My computer is rebooting alone. Please help

Good work replacing the capacitor. :) Laptops are tough little nuggets to get into. cpu temperature is around 5 C less that it was usual a few days ago That is not a significant temperature change really. It may be enough to slow reboots, but is probably not a long term fix (if overheating is the ca...

When you enable "fast and slow mode", the stats are updated when "fast" search concludes, but if they don't differ from the final ones (in a noticeable way), there's no other way to know, that the job's done. You could u...
