hi everyone,

I'm interested in an updated version of cutechess gui for windows, does someone has a more recent build than 1.0.0 release or know some site where upddated build can be downloaded?

Here is a 64-bit static compile from last November, posted by one of the developers:

https://github.com/cutechess/cutechess/ ... -64bit.zip

Its main new feature is User Adjudication. Been running it since December.


Here's a working 32-bit dynamic compile of the latest dev:

The 64-bit static compile done per wiki instructions compiles without errors once you update your MSYS2 install; however, the resulting exec complains about the missing/wrong qwindows.dll. I tried copying this file to the /platforms subdir from various versions of QT installs without success. If you want to give it a try anyway, here it is:

Latest dev build (as of Feb 3 2018):

cutechess-gui-20180203.zip


GUI changes since last official release (1.0.0 July 20 2017):

- Draw/White win/Black win user adjudication (under Game menu)
- Resign (under Game menu)
- Close initial game tab if unused (under Tools/Settings/General)
- Use full name of human player (under Tools/Settings/General)
- Display players' sides on clocks (under Tools/Settings/General)
- "PGN Site" field (under Tools/Settings/General)
- "PGN output for single games" field (under Tools/Settings/General)
- "PGN output for single games" field (under Tools/Settings/General)
- "PGN output" field (under Tools/Settings/Tournaments)
- "EPD output" field (under Tools/Settings/Tournaments)


Briefly tested on two different boxes running Win 7 x64 Pro. Doesn't seem to require external DLLs or the platforms subdir.

Until interrupting/resuming tournaments is not implemented, Cute Chess remains of little use to me.
This.

First of all: Thank you for compiling the latest version!

And finally a question: Where can I find / download the modified version you wrote about? I'd be also interested in interrupting / resuming tournaments. Best thing would be to have a tournament file that other computers on the network could access, too. Than a distributed tournament play would be possible (like in ShredderClassic GUI).

Best regards
Timo

I presume it's Jeremy Bernstein's fork:
https://github.com/jeremybernstein/cutechess
It has CLI binaries already compiled.

Another fork appears more recent but offers source code only:
https://github.com/Aloril/cutechess-nTCEC
