To get a sense of its strength, I had Hopeless 0.49.0.4 play 10 games each against AdaChess 3.6 and MadChess 2.2 at 2'+6"" and it had 4 wins and 4 ties against AdaChess but it lost all of the other games on time forfeit. Too bad too as it can hold its own against MadChess in a few games until it forfeits.

For clarity, the WinBoard engine is called Hopeless, Lazarus is the development environment it was ported to from Delphi by Roland.

Here is the Windows 0.49.0.4 build with the latest changes and it has the Hopeless (xboard) and Clericus (gui) executable inside. I'll work on the Mac build soon.

I tested it in Arena with time control of 5"+1" and it works now.
Perfect. Thank you. Not yet had time to create the new release on GitLab but will make it ASAP.

Interesting. I will try to see if I can do something for that.

Just a small note. Seems you may have unintentionally renamed the build mode of xboard_release to gui_release because it was missing so I just created it to do the build.
OK, I will check that.

See you soon.
