Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

I created the polyglot book using Cute Chess from games with TC 3m+2s inc, around 1220 games only. If you create a book from games that are all longer than 6 moves, it should not be possible to get out of book before move 7 if both players use that book, right? I am not sure, perhaps it depends on ...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Perhaps once the book is out of book (first time), do not allow the gui to use the book again, so that the use of book moves is guaranteed to be equal. That is a book problem. Trying to solve it in the GUI would be a mistake. If you want to use a neutral 6-move book for starting tourney games, all ...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

I just ran 2 - 3000 game tournaments with 4 engines each at a time control of 10 +.01. The first was with CutechessGUI 0.9.4, the second with Cutechess-cli 0.8.2 After 6000 games the results were all within error bars between the 2 GUI's. So it would appear the CuteChessGUI 0.9.4 is "lightweight" a...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

There was still a really nasty bug causing crashes in tournaments so I've made a bugfix release for 64-bit Windows and Linux: https://github.com/cutechess/cutechess/releases/tag/gui-0.9.4 There's also a bonus feature - support for the "UCI_Variant" UCI option. I am not sure if this is normal, but i...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Add termination tag for connection stalled. This would happen when Nebiyu does not consider opponent's move as legal and would probably send "Illegal move <move>" to the gui. It would be better to handle the 'Illegal move', and reprort as Termination "refused move", rather than giving an (erroneous...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Wow, I'm discovering Cute Chess 0.94 now, and I'm very impressed by your program ! It's very user friendly, and VERY nice ! I'm seriously considering using it for my tournaments. For now I'm running a little RR 40/5 between Komodo and Stockfish; all seems ok. I've just a question : will you conside...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Yes you cannot see it because what I really mean is UCI_<variant name>. "UCI_Variant" should be a combo option and it's not visible to the user - it just tells Cute Chess which variants can be played. That is a good info. Cute Chess handles both "UCI_VariantName" (check) and "UCI_Variant" (combo) U...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

There's also a bonus feature - support for the "UCI_Variant" UCI option. Where to find that option? Stockfish variant has UCI_Variant but I could not see it in advance tab of configure engine box?

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.3 released

Multiple concurrent tournaments aren't possible at the moment, ... Can't you simply do that by starting multiple instance of Cute-chess,one for each tournament? If so, wouldn't that always be preferable over trying to do everything with a single instance? Yes, most likely that's actually better tha...
