Re: Banksia - Yet another Chess Tournament Manager

Thanks! Just fixed it. Missing a declare of <ctime>. Not sure why in my system (Xcode + MacOS) it is fine to compile but not in Visual Studio + Windows. Thank you for the fix. It's OK now. But, while we speak of compilation, I inform you that I tried without success to compile with g++ (MinGW). May...

Re: Banksia - Yet another Chess Tournament Manager

Thanks Roland Chastain :) I have updated the code to fix some bugs, improve interface and support opening books in pgn format (edp was supported). You're welcome. Unfortunately I cannot compile the new version. :? Erreur C2039 'time_t' : n'est pas membre de 'std' Banksia c:\roland\echecs\sources\ba...

Re: Capablanca Random Chess engines.

Hello! There are also ArcBishop80 and BigLion80.

I am myself writing an engine supporting Capablanca random variant, but it's far to be finished, and it certainly will never be strong. For me it is already an accomplishment to manage to make an engine that works properly. :)

Re: Banksia - Yet another Chess Tournament Manager

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney June

Well, for one you would need a registered account to participate. Guests can play, but not in an automated tourney, as the tournament manager wants to check their rating, which guests do not have. Then, even when you are logged on as a registered user, you would have to type a command to join the t...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney June

I tried to participate but apparently it didn't work. I could read discussion in chat window, but nothing else happened.

I hope I will have more success next time. :wink:

Re: Bottom CCRL 40/4

I was looking for Alouette 0.0.3, I'll replace it with Alouette-C. I am interested in engines that play as weak as possible but that win one with random moves. It is difficult to make an engine that plays weaker than ACE and POS! I do not recommend using Alouette 0.0.3, which has some bugs. Alouett...

"Alouette-A" is intended to replace Alouette 0.0.3, and "Alouette-B" is intended to replace Alouette 0.0.5. "Alouette-C" is rea...
