The content looks like this:

Code: Select all

[Event "Book"]
[Site "RWBC"]
[Date "????.??.??"]
[Round "?"]
[White "ABC"]
[Black "XYZ"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]

[Event "Book"]
[Site "RWBC"]
[Date "????.??.??"]
[Round "?"]
[White "ABC"]
[Black "XYZ"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]

1. d4 c5 2. d5 d6 3. e4 g6 1/2-1/2
...

Thanks for the report.

"book" : null means there is no book, either they did not set or BSG can't read them. If you use an older version of BSG, there may be a bug (BSG tried to share books between normal games and tournaments but conflicts on writing thus books may be lost from configurations).

Can you try with the latest version (0.8)?
- Set up books, verify if they are saved down well on JSON files
- Play some games/tournament to see if those books work
- Check JSON files if any missing

Thanks again.
This was with version 0.8. It is not really a book, but pgn start positions (all 6 plies) as you can see above.
I set it in the tournament dialogue, but it never is remembered.
Is there another way to set a pgn file? The funny thing is it worked once for one game.

Oops, I am sorry, it is a bug. BSG did not add new books correctly before creating tournaments (as well as saving back to JSON files). It will be fixed for the next release.

For the current version, you may fix by editing directly JSON file
- Stop BSG if it is running
- Open file "banksiatour.json" using any text editor
- Replace string "books" : null (we mentioned before) by bellow text:

Code: Select all

    "books" :
    [
      {
        "black" : true,
        "mode" : true,
        "name" : "3M_rand",
        "path" : "C:/Banksia/Openings/3M_rand.pgn",
        "type" : "pgn",
        "white" : true
      }
    ]

Take care if there is any redundant/missing comma.
- Save the file and open BSG.

Now you should see that book when creating a new tournament. The book should remain even you edit it too.

Thanks, that works now.

Meanwhile I found another serious bug, which obviously has to do with syzygy adudication.
Actually I hit the bug already 2 times by chance in the last 2 hours ;-)

When syzygy adjudication is enabled Banksia crashes, when the move which gives a syzygy postion (5 men in my case) is executed by an engine.
(windows crash popups)

Version 0.8 released

As usual, it fixed some bugs. The most serious one it could not detect some options which words in rare orders; a bug about not showing pv for engines pondering; table's headers become black in Linux.

New features:
  • Shuffle tournament games Carousel
  • Customizable color for highlighting boards in Playing boards dialog and for move highlights
  • Tournament result tables are shown in different tabs (not all in one)
Thanks for carousel mode, Nguyen. Maybe it can be further improved by making the gauntlet engine play the first round with white, the second with black, etc., repeating.

BTW, what is 'Mode' at the adjudication section?

Simply it is "turn" or "switch" to turn on, off

Thanks a lot for the report. I have been working on that issue (a bit hard for me to reproduce)
Do you have a debug version? I tried it with other more known engines and the result was always the same.
(Banksia crashing when a move would come, which would give a 5 men syzygy position on the board)

More info:
Win7-64 old quadcore w/o popcount and SSE 4.1. (May be there is still a little incompatibility with Win7 despite the dlls?)
Best would be someone with Win7 would reproduce the problem too...
Full 3-5 men Syzygy (290 files) in one folder set as directory in Banksia and set for adjudication.

BTW I don't understand the count (435) in Banksia?

I will send you a debug version about tomorrow (fixing few things first). Thanks a lot for your help.

435 is the number of "good" Syzygy endgames. The table lists all endgames BSG found and could read. Those endgames are counted from 1. If you scroll down to the end of the list the last count number must be 435.

The idea behinds that information is to help users quickly check their Syzygy endgames if they are readable, there is any missing/corrupted. It is not easy task for humans when the total of files is large (from my experience). I will show missing/corrupted files in later versions.

Edited: Oops, I understood your question now. So you mean why the number is 435 but not 290?

I don't know. In my computer, all 5 men is 288, closed to 290 and reasonable. Perhaps you need to scroll down to see any redundant / 6 men?

No , all 3,4,5 men dtz and wdl are 290 together. It seems to me now you count one set twice?
145+145 = 290 + 1/2*290 = 435

Thanks for the hint. Let me check and I will be back on this issue. BTW, I am going to add some code thus users can detect any issues with Syzygy files faster.
