Hi Franz. Thanks for the confirmation. Glad that it works.

For the translation, you can edit a .po file with poedit (for example matergui.de.po). Once it is done, you compile to .mo, still with poedit.

I will make tomorrow the small modifications that you have made on your own copy, so we have the same program.

Regards.

Roland

Done. Also updated French and German translations. I hope my German expressions are correct and intelligible.

Binaries are available for Linux and for Windows.

Hello! Here is the final (?) release of that project. No important changes since the previous release. I polished little things (mainly in translations and documentation).

I restored the output of the original program (which shows search progress), and added a -quiet option, so that Mater still answer in one line when it is called by the GUI.

I made binaries for Linux and for Windows.

Mater 1.1.20211124

Thanks to Franz Huber for his help, and of course to Valentin Albillo for his nice program.

Hello! Not sure to understand. When the application is started for the first time (when the .ini file doesn't yet exist), it loads the default problem, this position (as in the screenshot three messages above). Isn't it what you see?

Salut Roland,

oui c'est bien ça mais les pieces no correspondent pas au dessin du tableau, c'est á dire qu'il existe un décalage visuel et les pieces ne cadrent pas dans leurs cases.

C'est dommage que je ne sait pas envoyer une image du problème, une image vaut mil paroles.

Je te responds en français pour une meilleure communication. :wink:

Au revoir.

Étrange. Merci d'avoir signalé le problème. Je vais faire des essais sur différentes machines pour voir si j'arrive à reproduire la chose. Au revoir. :)

Hi Roland,

I had the same problems with your compiles on my computer, and I've found a solution:
you just have to set 'DPI awareness' to 'off' in the Lazarus 'Project Options'.

Regards,
Franz

Thank you Franz! I will remake the Windows binaries tomorrow.
