Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Regarding zh fen, the correct fen was not written in the tag section, [-] is missing. This is from a compiled code after 1827 commits. [Event "Imortal 2.9006 - TJchess 1.3 Match Nr 1"] [Site "Manila PHI"] [Date "2016.10.03"] [Round "36"] [White "TJchess 1.3 64bit"] [Black "Imortal 2.9006 32bit"] [R...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Where does Cute Chess store engine information? I installed an engine as WB then noticed that it is UCI and I would like to change that manually. The easiest way to change an engine's protocol is via the Tools -> Settings -> Engines dialog. But yes, it can also be done by editing the engines.json f...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Using my compiled Cute Chess 0.9.4 2016-10-02, I did a 2-engine tour using epd file (2000+ pos) as opening suite set at random, but 3 of the output games I found are without [FEN "? "] tag. This is after around 23 games were finished. Example of one of the 3 games. [Event "My Tournament"] [Site "i7...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Indeed, the CECP FENs are based on the bFEN standard. (Except that the pieces in hand are enclosed by [] brackets, rather than added as an extra rank to the board after a / slash, because the latter could cause ambiguity in the board size. XBoard does understand pure bFEN on input, however.) In bFE...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Would it be possible to use two different polyglot books as in cutechess-cli, where this is an engine option? Guenther Technically yes, and Polyglot book is an engine option also in the GUI. But it was easier to design the UI like it is currently. After v1.0 we'll make it possible to set time contr...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Suggestion: Implement zh epd file as opening suite. EPD format: r1bqkbnr/pp3ppp/2ppp3/8/2BQP3/2N5/PPP2PPP/R1B2RK1[PNn] b kq - There was a stupid bug that broke Crazyhouse FEN parsing. I just fixed it in the master branch. So now there should be nothing preventing the use of Crazyhouse EPD opening s...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

If you don't actually need to watch the games live, there's a way to drop Cute Chess GUI's CPU usage to the cutechess-cli level: make sure there's a non-tournament game open where nothing is happening (eg. the default Human-Human game that Cute Chess opens initially) and switch to that game's tab. ...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

The lesson to learn: don't compare results in GUI and CLI below 3+0.03. In fact I will probably not switch right now to GUI, and use CLI. I cannot even see in GUI whether there are losses on time. It would be nice for it to count number or regularly finished games, time losses, illegal move losses,...
