LBB upon receiving the moves, say 12, it will play all the moves on the board fast, perhaps a delay of 5s/move or settable or based on the TC used in the game is better, so that it would still look like a live game in action.

It seemed this LBB has a 64-game limit.

Merry Christmas :!:
Excellent! I will suggest this broadcast-beta (replay moves) change to Lichess. (Sorry, you are correct about the 64-game limit; feel free to use multiple broadcasts & we can feature each one.)

Chris Callahan (Lichess: NoJoke) & I (Lichess: Toadofsky) will ensure Lichess prominently features the broadcast at its scheduled start date (or if you prefer, once it has started). Please do invite us as "members" (upper-left corner of the broadcast) and we'll be glad to help moderate the live chat and ensure Lichess continually polls for updates (it does so if any study member is viewing the broadcast).

Merry Christmas! :D
In the following image selecting new does not work for me.

I use:

Code: Select all

-livepgnout live.pgn
from cutechess-cli v0.8.5 from Norman.

I got this.

Please check your messages on Lichess as I believe Chris is attempting to assist.

Re: Google Drive, I think to get the raw (plaintext) output you need to specify a URL which returns a plaintext file?

Thanks, chats with Chris now.

Yes that is what I did, I revised the url. It works on traditional but will not work with (new) or one file per game.

Thanks for organizing this tournament Ferdinand.

My only doubt/concern is why only 256MB hash? Even for the rapid games is a bit low.

Don't use montecarlo=1 for now. I see that the MCTS works well only in the chess branch, and I need to do the same for the ALIEN branch where crazyhouse is located.

I want my system to have enough memory reserves. The engines will be fine with 256 mb.
