Re: cutechess cli - resume tournament?

Is it possible to get cutechess cli to resume a tournament that was unfortunately aborted due to a power outage? I've read the documentation but can't see any option to do this :( I think technically it would be possible by scanning the tourney .pgn file. Could this be added if it can't already do ...

Re: c-chess-cli release

Works excellent on Android so far. I encountered only one problem, when epd opening files were saved on windows (CR + LF), c-chess-cli reports illegal fens, but when saved as unix format (LF only) it works. Thanks. Should be fixed now: https://github.com/lucasart/c-chess-cli/commit/854a6ad1b04ede80...

Re: Where is Father famous anti computer chess player

Anyone paying attention knows that the guy got tired of this place. He'd post some flowery title like... "GRANDFATHER AGAINST 64 CORE MONSTER OF DOOM DEFENDS HUMANKIND!" ...then embed a stonewall setup where he shuffled for 300 moves and flagged someone on PlayChess... ...to the instant flaming of ...

Re: PV in PGN comments

The recommended way to include PVs in PGN is as recursive variations. PGN viewers that support interpretation of recursive variations can then be used to walk through the PVs. If you hide the PV inside a comment, PGN viewers would ignore them. Thanks. But I don't think that's intended for PV. Rathe...

c-chess-cli release

c-chess-cli mimicks cutechess-cli, and uses the same syntax to a large extent (see README). Finally supports Windows, binaries can be downloaded here (Linux and Windows only): https://github.com/lucasart/c-chess-cli/releases/tag/20210710 For Android, you can compile it yourself. You just need a term...

PV in PGN comments

Is there a universally accepted way of adding the PV in PGN comments ? For now, c-chess-cli produces comments like: 1. e4 {57/17 205ms} Some possibilities that comd to mind: 1. e4 {57/17 205ms [e5 Nf3 Nc6]} 1. e4 {57/17 205ms [e5 2. Nf3 Nc6]} 1. e4 {57/17 205ms [1... e5 2. Nf3 Nc6]} 1. e4 {57/17 205...

Re: c-chess-cli: experimental windows support

There is still the issue of '\' vs. '/'. It seems easier to banish '\', because they break string parsing, and Windows tolerates '/' anyway. hmm, why not simply support forward slashes only and make a note of this in the readme/manual After some thought, I decided to fix this as follows: * use '\' ...

Re: c-chess-cli: experimental windows support

I pushed some fixes: 1/ explicit "b" or "t" mode for fopen() in Windows (vs. "e" in both cases for POSIX). 2/ remove the -Wpadded pedantic warning in make.py. Heeding this when struct elements have platform-dependant sizeof() is just too annoying. 3/ do not inherit parent handled in child processes...
