Re: Banksia GUI released

I am in the process of upgrading my Raspberry Pi 4 8GB model with a SSD and a new case. I just installed Ubuntu Mate on it. Then the thought hit me, how difficult would it be to port Banksia over so that it could run on a Arm processor? :shock: I am also in the process of installing Picochess on it...

Re: Banksia GUI released

.. Look at this: https://i.snipboard.io/SynMdK.jpg How is the ponderhit ratio calculated? (BTW can it be shown permanently? It's very difficult to see on short time control games, and it only shows when engines get a ponderhit. If they don't, it's not shown for that move. Also, it would be cool to ...

Re: Banksia GUI released

There is another thing though, that I want to ask you. Can you include timestamps (down to the milisecond maybe?) in the engine's log file? Cause I saw this: RubiChess 2.2 < uci Ethereal 13.25 < uci RubiChess 2.2 > info string Allocation of memory uses large pages. RubiChess 2.2 > info string Loadi...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Is there an option to download Banksia Gui with preinstall 5 to 6 men endgame :?: No, BSG doesn't release with any endgame file. Banksia GUI website doesn't have any of them either. However, it has a function/dialog box to help users from selecting, downloading, verifying Syzygy endgames (which are...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Hi dear phhnguyen! Another feature request: In the Windows version, could you make tournament crosstable cells size and backgroung color customizable like in the macOS version? There is room for 4 rounds in the default setting, but so the crosstable becomes very large and I don't find a way to resi...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Cool, glad to be able to help reporting things. Here's another one: you said that tournament info is saved whenever there's a change in it, but I still don't see it updating after games are played which would imply that if my banksia process that's currently running crashes, or the whole system cra...

Re: Banksia GUI released

A few days ago I lost all such games. The GUI should keep its own engine running until Lichess ends the game with a sound, and not before! Banksia is currently making decisions based on its own GUI clock, and that is wrong! I have been working with Eduard on this issue, thanks Eduard! Just inform t...

Re: UCI's readyok: A mistake or a misunderstanding

There can be other reasons why an interface sends isready while the engine is supposed to be searching. BTW which interface is sending isready while the engine is searching? It is good to know its purpose. Banksia/BanksiaGUI do that! The purpose is to detect crash-stall when an engine does not quit...

Re: UCI's readyok: A mistake or a misunderstanding

I explain here my view/BanksiaGUI view, of course not for justification but for our understanding. Engine crashing happens quite often. Many crashes are stalls in which engines don’t quit but cease sending info to the chess GUI, even other things seem to be fine, the pipes between those engines-ches...
