Problem with Arena 3.0

Post by pedrox » Tue Mar 20, 2012 11:43 am

Arena appears to have a problem with some engines to start the game.

For example Chad's Chess wants to start the game without having received a command "go" or a move, even with black.

Code: Select all

DanaSah plays black, DanaSah mates.

This is ok. Now DanaSah plays white, DanaSah has command ping, DanaSah is engine 1.
