Re: Eschecs, a simple GUI written in Pascal

Hundreds of engines around but only a few GUIs. And with a lovely, distinctly retro-flavored GUI like Eschecs who could blame you for focusing on it? Thank you for the compliment. Here is a new release. It was needed because the buggy code detected with Guenther help was also used by the GUI. By th...

Re: Eschecs, a simple GUI written in Pascal

Hello Daniel! Thank you for your message. I would like to make my engine better, but I spend too much time on the GUI. :)

Re: Booot 6.3.1 release

Hello Alex! Thank you for that new release. I believe I found a little bug. When the GUI sends the "ucinewgame" message, Booot answers as for the "uci" message. Booot 6.3.1_x32 uci id name Booot 6.3.1_x32 id author Alex Morozov (***) option name Hash type spin default 128 min 16 max 65536 option nam...

Re: Eschecs, a simple GUI written in Pascal

But it's not finished, right? Cause I don't see where to set time controls, for one. I like the marble board. Except it's so small and I can't resize it.
