Tactics generator

Post by JohnS » Thu Jan 14, 2021 6:20 am

Came across this at https://github.com/vitogit/pgn-tactics-generator and tried to install it on mingw on Win10.

It immediately crashes with a segmentation fault when I run it.

Has anyone got it to run, thanks.

I remember Ferdy released a similar tool. It is just actually a GM-GM analysis tool that detects blunders.
You let SF run at the background and detect all the blunders, export the blunder and hence you can generate your own set of positions containing tactical mistakes of GM's. Sorry, not related to your question on how to run the tactics generator but the above mentioned tool could be an alternative if the one at github is a pain.

I need to search my backups here to find that blundercheck tool of Ferdy, so I can email it to you in case you need it..
I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar.

Thanks Mike. I found this one https://github.com/fsmosca/chess-artist so will try it and compare it to chessbase analysis on my games. There will be lots of my blunders for it to pick up :D

Still curious why the other one crashes.
