Re: Distributing engines for Mac/OSX

Maybe you are running 10.6 ? It in fact has some funny 32 bit kernel with support for running 64 bit apps. Almost all intel macs are 64bit, and the couple that aren't couldn't run 10.6 so I wouldn't worry about that. Unless you really want to run a 32 bit engine? All Intel Macs can run 10.6. Wiki - ...

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 - ...

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...
