Unfortunately, I'm signed up for an 84 mile bike ride - it's a training run for a 600 mile tour we'll do in early August ( a fund raiser for a charity).

hgm, can you make me a non-engine account on winboard.nl, so I can control my engine via icsdrone? (The machine I am using now on the server has no console).

Hi HG,

Myrddin is connected, but I won't be available to manually join the tournament. Can you do it for me, please?

Thanks!

I tried to participate but apparently it didn't work. I could read discussion in chat window, but nothing else happened.

I hope I will have more success next time. :wink:

Well, for one you would need a registered account to participate. Guests can play, but not in an automated tourney, as the tournament manager wants to check their rating, which guests do not have.

Then, even when you are logged on as a registered user, you would have to type a command to join the tourney when it announcec itself.

Only after that everything would be automatic (if there are no disconnects).
