Re: Scid fork and Phalanx news

Is it possible to specify an opening book or a set of opening positions in a pgn file for engine matches? Sorry, but I'm a little ignorant about opening books in general. AFAIK (and can remember since i wrote this code a few months ago), the xboard engines will use their own book (if the correct di...

Re: Scid fork and Phalanx news

Ha ha, it was only a two-liner to implement millisecond time control for Phalanx. I'd already fixed it's illegal castling. You can get the latest code here svn co https://phalanx.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/phalanx Cygwin is needed for windows compilation. Things to-do : en-passant needs a bug-fix, ...

Re: Scid fork and Phalanx news

Any chance of implementing millisecond time controls in computer matches for ultrafast matches? It seems to work fine now. Just input a decimal value (".2" for eg) in the time dialog, instead of using the arrows which only selects integers. The only issue is that the xboard command is "st SECONDS"....

It's got a heap of improvements over SCID - A decent gamelist widget and interface, and improvements to FICs, Tacgame, Help-menus and the Puzzle features come to mind. The next thing to do i...

Re: SCID analysis

Oh...am i answering the wrong question :oops:

It does handle UCI and Xboard protocols of course.
Xboard is handled by analysis.tcl and UCI commands by uci.tcl
Look for sendToEngine commands.
See more recent version for up-to date code, but these links should be ok.

Re: SCID analysis

In addition to three full chess engines packaged with it (Phalanx, Scidlet and Toga II), Scid also has a simple chess engine built-in. engine.h: // The Engine class provides a simple chess position evaluator // based on negamax with quiescent search and alpha/beta pruning. // It is used in Scid for ...

Linux (Mac/Windows) Chess Tournament Feature

Just spruiking my project, Scid vs. PC . A few months ago i added an automated tourney feature. Quite a few engines work great.. RobboLito, Stockfish, Crafty, Glaurung, Toga II. Some others need some effort. Gnuchess needs "-xboard". Time keeping is on a per-move basis, but with continuous analysis ...
