Winboard with saving Human times in pgn? @HGM

Post by Guenther » Sat Jan 05, 2019 10:07 am

While playing a few handicap games and others vs. SF 9/10 I noticed again that WB does not save
the thinking time for the Human player in the pgn file.

After a little research I remembered that I had already asked about it in 2014 ;-) and HGM said he
believes it probably never did. IIRC he was right and I used a tool from George Lyapko in the past
which retrieved all infos from the debug and constructed a pgn of it and I guess it still worked
in 2014, because I didn't ask further. (King Of The Hill thread)

I had it still running here with DOS-Box (it could not run anymore after I migrated to Win7).
After trying it out again now, it seems the output for the Human player has changed and LGDEBHUM
chokes on the Human moves, while it still has no problem parsing the engine output, despite
UCI2WB logging was on.

The WB debug now always echoes the debug time after usermove, which seems to be the culprit.
