LCO for mobile phone android advise

Post by PeterO » Sun Oct 06, 2019 7:37 am

Hello chessfriends,

I have NEVER tryed LC0 :oops:
Now I want to run it on my mobile phone - android 9 - 64 - using „Chess for Android“

I think I need 2 things - right?
1. the engine - link :?:
2. the weights - link :?:

Which weights do you recomend? I want it to play it 1600 - 1800 human Elo (yes I am so weak :oops:

Thanks for advice

Peter

https://github.com/LeelaChessZero/lc0/w ... -chess-GUI
(not only the lc0 Android downloads, but many useful hints and links, too)...

(I use DroidFish, lc0 runs without any problems in it and Droidfish looks much nicer than ChessforAndroid).

And try some of D.Kappe Gyal-networks, which are weaker.

Thanks for your answer!
Worked great - immediately. :D
I prefer Chess for Android - you can use it with „Chessgenius Excusive“ - a beautiful wooden board :mrgreen: (chesscomputer).

Peter,
Thanks for your loyalty to CfA, much appreciated! Also, I am really glad it is working for you now, but didn't you ask the same question a while back where I gave almost an identical answer as the one above? Note that the only thing that changed since then is that CfA now has full UCI options support, so you no longer need to do the trick by "installing" the weight file. More improvements are in the making where you can save the same engine under different names with different option settings.

Hi Aart,

you are right - good memory! When I read your description I had an old mobile phone/android system and decided to wait.
Now I have a new one :D So I decided to give it a try. However I was surprised how easy it worked!

That sounds very promising! Can‘t wait to try it!

I answered my own question... is Chess Genius now working with windows 64?

Hi,

The Chessgenius Exclusive consists of 2 parts:
1. A beautiful wooden board (with leds)
2. The chesscomputer modul

Instead of the chesscomputer modul you can link it with the chesslink modul (€ 99,-)
https://computerchess.com/en/chesslink-3/

Now your wooden chessboard has bluetooth! You can connect it with Aart Biks app „Chess for Android“
Watch the video!

Hope I could help you!

Peter
