Re: Explanation of the Cute Chess message 'connection stalls'

This option cannot be used in combination with the tc option. Thank yo...

Re: Explanation of the Cute Chess message 'connection stalls'

cutechess reports "connection stalls" when the engine doesn't reply with the expected messages to stop, or uci (I suppose). if you use cutechess with tournament time control and your engine search at depth 5 and after a minute report the bestmove, it could happen that cutechess has calculated that ...

Re: Explanation of the Cute Chess message 'connection stalls'

@JohnWoe, konsolas Thank you for your answers. I continue to search. It's a UCI engine. The program is always able to answer. For now I added a "no recursion" option, until I find a solution. Maybe is it too much to compute all positions at five halfmoves depth? Should I ignore some move sequences? ...

Re: Explanation of the Cute Chess message 'connection stalls'

Your engine is probably crashing. Try entering one of the positions where "the connection stalls" manually into your engine to see if it exits or does something strange. Thank you for your answer. I already did what you suggest, and it appears that the engine doesn't crash, since after a minute it ...

Explanation of the Cute Chess message 'connection stalls'

Hello! My chess program has a loop to evaluate material at two halfmoves depth. Recently, I introduced a recursive call, limited to one. Now, the tournament manager (Cute Chess Cli) says that the engine "connection stalls". More exactly, that message comes when the number of moves increases (typical...

Re: max number of pseudo legal move

Dann, I like very much your "205 best moves" position. :)

By the way, the official JetChess web page no longer exists. Would you know another place where one can download it?

Re: Looking for R. Scharnagl FEN editor

Found another (?) version of the FEN editor here . After verification, it is indeed another, more recent version (2.3.3, while the other is 1.3.5). By the way, the 10x8 board is disabled if the copy isn't registered. I tried the different versions of the DLL. Some of them don't work on my machine b...
