Re: Weird behaviour of Pigeon 1.51 - Help requested

https://rwbc-chess.de/download.htm Somehow I can't find Pigeon in your collection. Did you try a refresh? - it there since hours. I was having the same issue, and I tried refreshing and also logging in to my Google account, and no luck. I see your recent upload of Berzerk, but not Pigeon.

Re: Arena autodetection for CECP/XBoard

There were a few compiles made by Jim Ablett which integrated Crafty and WB2UCI into one executable, so that Crafty was usable within Chessbase GUIs without requiring a separate adapter. 25.1 is the most recent "UCI" version that I have.

Re: Sargon 1978 UCI Available

I wonder if Dan and Kathe are aware of how much interest people still have in their old program. It would be cool to see the source of a later version, though who knows if they would even have the rights to that. I had a lot of fun playing Sargon II on the VIC-20.

Re: Why Isn't Arena Gui Updated

The Linux version was last updated only a year ago. I wonder why Martin has not provided an update for Windows. Arena is written in Delphi, so he should be able to provide a package for both operating systems.

Re: New engine releases & news 2021

Waxman is still alive! Version 2020 was released a few days ago. http://www.waxman2008.com/whatsnew.html I adore this program. I've been playing it since the old DOS version (with terminate and stay resident capabilities, so you could hide what you were doing in case the instructor walked by). I ha...

McBrain JS has nothing to do with Javascript. It means that the EXE was compiled by John Stanback.

His website is online, but you have to enable the deprecated TLS 1.0/1.1 to view it, at least in Firefox.

Re: Stockfish hangs

Very odd. It appears Stockfish issued the readyok before the nnue file was initialized, and missed some of the subsequent commands sent by the GUI.

Re: How to run a java chess program in windows

Thanks that one worked. BTW what is "-Xmx1024M"? That's the maximum amount of memory that Java will use, technically the maximum heap size. It doesn't necessarily have to be included in the batch file, but in the past I had problems with some engines unless I explicitly included that option with a ...
