Hi

I tried this WB2UCI file.

[ENGINE]
Name=Tucano 7
Author=Alcides Schulz, Brasil
Filename=Wb2Uci.exe

[OPTIONS]
Program=tucano_w64.exe -Hash = 1024 -Threads = 8
Ponder=true

According the taskmanager Tucano 7 uses only 1 cpu. Did I do wrong?

Take the equal signs out of the command line, and don't capitalize the keywords hash and threads:

[ENGINE]
Name=Tucano 7
Author=Alcides Schulz, Brasil
Filename=Wb2Uci.exe

[OPTIONS]
Program=tucano_w64.exe -hash 1024 -threads 8
Ponder=true

Hmm, I can't seem to get it to work with wb2uci either. It works OK if run from a command line or as a Winboard engine in a GUI that supports Winboard.

Hi, I am not familiar with WB2UCI, but it looks it should send the parameters using the comand line.

should the line be enclosed in quotes? e.g:

Program="tucano_w64.exe -hash 1024 -threads 8"

Hope this helps.

No this does not help at all. Result: "engine can not load".

Tucano 7 therefore seems not to be able to play with more then 1 thread under Fritz GUI.

Much to my regret because I like the playingstyle of Tucano and I have 16 threads on my machine. :(

Sorry to hear that. I downloaded WB2UCI. It has an option to send commands to engine using InitString.
If you want to give another try, use the following below:

[OPTIONS]
Program=tucano_w64.exe
InitString=option Threads=8\noption Hash=512\n


This setup should send the threads and hash information directly to engine. I haven't had a chance to test it. I will keep looking.

thanks

I tried it. The engine still uses 1 thread.
