Re: FRC / Chess960 -- Some Lessons I Learned

I'm always scared to push things like this, since something may break no matter how careful I am, but I plan to push this before Version 11.50. Hopefully if there are any bugs, they appear to me before the proper release of V11.50. If you would like to play around with the tentative FRC support, I ...

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

Instead of an option in a INI file, I decided to make three different engines, Alouette-A, Alouette-B and... Alouette-C. :) Maybe I will come back to the first idea, but for now I find more simple to have several executables. The idea is still to keep the different versions of the program. Alouette-...

Re: Python Easy Chess GUI

Could you post an image about this "black windows"? Did you use the exe or the py file? I built the exe using pyinstaller. It's the standard Windows console, or if you prefer the command prompt. I cannot take a screenshot because it just appears during a fraction of second. Probably it is the conso...

Re: Anyone know of a way to download FR fens(chess960) by FR position number?

The confusion maybe comes also from the fact that I gave a link to another file without saying clearly what was the difference or the similitude with the file proposed by MikeB. Sorry for that. If you are interested, you can see here the function that I used to number positions. See the function Pos...

Re: Python Easy Chess GUI

Beautiful. I like very much the design.

After some user actions, a black window appears. It's (I imagine) when a script is started. Isn't there a way to hide these black windows? If it isn't possible I can live with it. :)

Good continuation! I will follow this project with interest.

Re: Anyone know of a way to download FR fens(chess960) by FR position number?

On the FR stuff, just not interested in doing any UI around it mainly right now so not sure the point to add fen position numbers to PGN. Anyone know by the way if you even did add a fen position to PGN is there a PGN tag for that? I guess i'm wondering how custom this all is. Are there any agreed ...

Re: Anyone know of a way to download FR fens(chess960) by FR position number?

It could be useful but without more user feedback to gauge interest I didn't think it was worth getting into release one of Pulsar with Chess960. But pulsar chess engine with chess 960 is in release now at https://apps.apple.com/us/app/pulsar-chess-engine/id839640447 for iOS and https://play.google...
