Purdue FOSCEC Season 5 Bullet: Hitting the speed bumps

Post by Gusev » Thu May 03, 2018 4:58 pm

Purdue FOSCEC Season 5 Bullet (1 min + 1 sec) is running at http://www.foscec.org/ under Norman Schmidt's CCCC. This is just a test before we start FOSCEC Season 5 Classic. So far, Rodent disconnected, and I will be looking for other signs of trouble.
Most importantly, I don't see the crosstable. The message says, "The requested URL /data/palview/crosstable.htm was not found on this server." The chat reference still leads to Norm's old chat, as I understand it. But the chat is not much of an issue, the crosstable is. The tournament details are all wrong, too. As usual, my students set up the tournament.

My investigation revealed that my students confused Andscacs with Arasan, so Arasan 20.5 ran in the test bullet tournament under the name Andscacs, and Andscacs did not run at all. This is not the only thing messed up: the protocol for Rodent and Crafty mistakenly remained 'uci', instead of being set to 'xboard', so those two engines were unable to run. Will fix! :D
