I like the "look" of the new GUI. Is it possible for you to add the eval from White's perspective? I like that function from TS Robbins, but I like your look better
That mix sounds desirable.

Off topic, any chance of seeing an update of the TCERL?

They either ran out of chess variants to add or consider CC already good enough not to need any more changes.

Well, my guess is they simply had not enough time besides real work.
I hoped though, they would start an easter holidays session on cutechess again,
but who knows and they decided to relax on a small south pacific island instead.

Anyhow, here are the diffs some people asked for in this thread to be merged with your custom build ;-)
(color changes and resizing pieces vs. squares, which were too big before, real chess players hate it, if
pieces fill nearly completely their square)

I am grateful for the work done on CuteChess GUI. Is it possible to have 2 different time controls for each engine in a match?

IE
Engine A 5' 3"
Engine B 4' 2"

If it will have separate TC, depth, nodes in games for each engine, I will start using the GUI. I haven't used GUI (I used only CLI version) precisely because of this shortcoming of the GUI.

No. Only in cutechess-cli.

It would require quite some work, as it is not even clear how to add that option to the tournament dialogue.
For cutechess 'matches' only exist as a special case of gauntlets or round-robins with just two players.
Probably best would be to add it as a special option into the engine dialogue, overruling the time settings of a tournament,
for desired engines.

It is on the todo list IIRC, but I won't hold my breath for it.
