Banksia GUI forum moderator is a lousy cheater.

His own name is Alessandro Morales, also called Alex or AlexChess, but he takes my name and creates an account, with it to insult me. I almost can't believe that something like that is actually true. Live Photo: AlexChess & friends currently playing live on PlayChess. This account (EddyAlone) plays with my engine, uses my name, and has also simulated the nation (Swiss flag). Games against ProteusSF are lost (He's playing against himself). This guy is even a moderator in the Banksia GUI Forum. What a shame for Banksia GUI to have such a person leading a forum.

My request to Pham: Please finally remove this lousy guy from your forum.

We hope now that he (ProteuSF-official) will be banned by a sysop. A sysop was in the chat.

watch all games (you can watch your live games)?

You can also watch all games on PlayChess. There the opponents are much stronger. Only: What should ProteusSF watch on PlayChess? There's nothing to watch. Unfortunately.

His two main accounts only play games against their own test accounts and only 2 games a week just to push his Elo. :roll:

He gives advice to others, but he himself does not do what he says.

Question to AlexChess: when will we be able to see more games of your gold versions? Two games a week, plus against your own test accounts, that's nothing. You are also welcome to compete against me in a duel on 100 games. Then we'll see how good you are. However, I do not play against cheaters. Play normal games first, then I'll be happy to remove you from my ignore list.

Not to my knowledge, I think I remember something about a complete rewrite. Someone else here can correct me if I am wrong.

I use it for my tournament but it has bugs.

In my tournaments I see sometimes that games failed to start so I do not get all games and I have no option to kill the engine that crashed in the first move and retry.

The only option I have to get the tournament again is simply to restart and hope that I am lucky and get no crash.

I know no option to add engines or remove engines from existing tournament(maybe there is and I do not know)

In my tournament smarthink 1.98 2048 nodes crashed and refused to play games 1669-1704 and these games considered as losses.
It also refused to play games 1705-1710 against smathink1.98 with 8192 nodes and more nodes but these games are considered to be a draw.

It later crashed also in games 1711-1728

smarthink 8192 nodes also crashed in games 1777-1782

I counted 66 games when engine crashed but the interface give only 61 fails for some reason.

It is probably only a problem with smarthink and not with other engines but it is also a problem of the interface because it is better to have an option to try to resume games when engine crashed in the first move later.

Hi Ted, I have talked to Pham 3 months ago. He should restart coding and fixing all the bugs later this year. In the meanwhile I've cleaned all the spam and deleted some insulting accounts (that same that now are annoying users and moderators here :roll: )

I'm also updating BanksiaGui Forum with all new engines download links and interesting contents.
