Thanks!
I've been using Scid vs PC because there's a Mac binary.
Is there a way to get a Mac installer for SCID 4.7 or can we compile the source with latest MacOS?
Thanks again

Fulvio, is there some way to customize notation text colors? Red, green, blue, etc. are distracting; plain black would be more accessible.

Also, is it possible to hide the information below the board (the hamburger menu, last move, eco code, comment, etc.)? Or at least, is it possible for that "Last move:" in that information window to be in text and not figurine?

Thank you in advance.

Found it in graph.tcl. A pity that plain pgn time as used by cutechess/winboard/arena etc is not supported
Changing line 466 in tcl/tools/graphs.tcl
from:
set emtExp {.*?\[%emt\s*(.*?)\s*\].*}
to:
set emtExp {\s*[0-9.+-/]*\s+([0-9.]*)}

should work.
Please, can you tell me first why my example with "%emt x.xx" does not work?
Do you have any working pgn sample for testing how it will look, if the graph is shown?

Yes.
SCID depends only on the tcl/tk library, which can be downloaded here:

Assuming Xcode is used to compile, the easiest way is use cmake to create the xcode project:

Yes, it is possible to select different colors, or to disable colors and have just plain black:

No, those information are not configurable.

I would like to point out that the tcl/tk code is interpreted, it is not necessary to recompile to implement the changes.
I tried to change that line in the graphs.tcl file, started SCID, copied and pasted the PGN you posted, and it works.

This is a PGN I just downloaded from lichess.org that works by default (black thought an hour before playing 20..d5):

Thanks for this great SCID update.
Is there any chance that there is an updated rating list somewhere?

Oh, thanks. I thought the rect. brackets were part of the regex.
It seems to work now. If I understand it right it shows sum of used time in minutes?
(at least in my example) Would it be possible to thicken the plotting lines in the
tcl too w/o recompiling?
Currently they look a bit thin and lonesome against the evals.
(may be it would be even better to have their own graph to do more visible scaling,
now it is bound to the eval scaling)

According to the help file there are some settings to this, but it does not mention where to find the menu
for setting those options?

Code: Select all

In a Time diagram the time for the time consumption per move or the time remaining on the clock can also be displayed. For the evaluation of the time the tags[%clk 0:01:19] and [%emt 0:00:19] must be contained in the comment. The values are always displayed in minutes. Via the menu you can select which combination of the diagrams should be shown: 
Both: The game evaluation and time are displayed. 
Time: Only the time graph is displayed ("Both" must be deselected!) 
Sum: In the time display, the sum of the time consumed is displayed if the time is available as [%emt 00:12].
Edit:
Ok I found it the menu for those windows is always clicking the 3 lines in front of the name of the header of such a window.
