Re: New chess engine - DoubleCheck 1.0 (Lucas Braesch)

Ok, I forgot to make it clear that doublecheck works fine in scid playing against another engine (or against myself for the case).

Re: New chess engine - DoubleCheck 1.0 (Lucas Braesch)

Ok, that was the problem: I was trying the engine only in analysis mode. Silly me, until now I was giving for granted that any engine should work on analysis mode :)

Re: New chess engine - DoubleCheck 1.0 (Lucas Braesch)

Thanks for sharing Lucas I've tried to install your engine in scid, on a xubuntu X64 but it doesn't seem to work. Some extra info about my system: $ uname -a Linux xubuntuco 2.6.38-10-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Tue Jun 28 15:07:17 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux I'm able to add the engine to the...

Re: Alice: A reintroduction

Hi Sven

As a linux user I'm interested in (almost) any engine that can run in this platform.

Can you provide a link to your project? (I've made a search on the web but I haven't been able to find anything useful).

Anyway, I'd be interested in the develop of this project

Best

Re: Lucaschess: a program with increasing level of difficult

Hi Mincho If with people who play with their engines you are referring to me, then I want to make clear I'm not one of them. I just was lucky enough to find Lucas' program and wanted to share this info with people who could find it valuable. By the way, thanks to every "welcome" I've received in thi...

Re: Lucaschess: a program with increasing level of difficult

Hi Lucas Well, you know, I just thought it was time for you to start making big money out of your program... oh, wait, it's free!! (btw, and related to freedom, in your page there is a note saying that all its content is licensed under gpl, and I assumed it includes the program itself: is it right?)...

Lucaschess: a program with increasing level of difficulty

Hi all This is my first post in this forum. I'm not sure whether an introduction is appropriate or not (as well as the real topic itself), so just in case I'll proceed to (a short) one: my chess and programming skills are medium, and my approach to chess engines has more to do with the one of a ches...
