Version 5.5 dev1 : new engines

Version 5.5 dev1 :  LucasChessPortable55dev1.exe

Added three new engines

Trainings : Game against an engine of your choice

  • New parameter: Set the strength of the opponent (based on idea contributed by Karbunclo-siliconchess), with five options :

  • While playing you can change the opponent, strength, and even color : 

Kibitzers :

  • New option, you can select only one side to analyze or both (default).


  1. hey Lucas thanks for this great program

    Can you put an option for exmaple: when I play vs engine and the game is finished I want play another game vs the same engine but I have to go to Training -> Lucas-Elo -> then I select the engine that for now is Umko 1

    I dont know how you can implement the option for example:

    1. Play some games vs XXX engine
    2. Play X games vs XXX engine
    3. Play games vs random engines
    4. Play X games vs random engines

    So when the game is finished the program automatically start a new game

    Another thing xD

    Just close the program when click the [X] close button while a game is active, obviously auto-resing the game

    And the last thing is: it will be cool if you put a statistics system like, win/lose/draw vs XXX engine and a general statistics

    well it's all by now xDD

    Thanks again...

  2. Thanks tttony.

    At then end of game program will ask if you want to play again. And it is possible to change parameters (+Options-Change opponent).

    In relation to statistics, in Options-Configuration-Automatic save-Autosave to a CSV, stores information to be treated with a spreadsheet. Perhaps in future LC will make some work with this data.

    In relation to :
    Just close the program when click the [X] close button while a game is active, obviously auto-resing the game

    I don´t understand what is the problem.


  3. I will try to explain

    Now when I click [X] the program show this msg:

    ¿Do you resing? (-20)

    I click: Yes and the program show another msg:

    XXX engine has won
    New rating 1222

    Then I can close the program

    Just close the program when click the [X] button, show the msg:

    ¿Do you resing? (-20)

    click Yes and terminate the program

    Sorry I'm not good in english

  4. Olá Lucas, uma sugestão para o programa, acho que falta a opção de girar o tabuleiro, principalmente, ao ler as partidas em PGN, Faço meu treino com ele, estou evoluindo muito, pela linguagem PORTUGUÊS.


  5. Me refiro a versão 5.4 instalada ok!.

  6. Você tem que clicar (dua veces) sobre o círculo branco no canto inferior esquerdo do tabuleiro.

  7. tttony : solved.
    Esta vez si que lo he entendido, creo que ya esta resuelto.
    He dejado en dropbox la dev2:

    Muchas gracias.

  8. Instalable :

  9. Muito bom, assim ficou melhor, estou treinando com ele, tenho outros aqui Convekta, mas achei o seu mais interessante, claro que precisaria tbm para ficar 100% um módulo só com temas, tipo, CRAVADAS, FORCA, ENFIADA, QUEBRANDO ROQUE, ANIQUILANDO DEFESAS etc ... como já existe MATe em 1 , 2 e 3 deveria futuramente colocar mais temas táticos.
    Um abraço.

  10. Em relação a temas táticos, qualquer colaboração será bem-vinda.

  11. Hello sir Lucas.
    Thank you very much for this great program. In my sight, it's even greater than Ubisoft Chess Master!

    Back then, I like the analyze function of this program very much. It shows score for each move, and when I double click on the move, the tutor engine show me what is the best move/worst move in that situation. From the day I know Lucas Chess, I also use it to analyze my real games via Training menu > Utilities > Create Your own game, then I input the move and analyze. My question is, is there anyway to save the analization, so that I can review it later with out re-analyze it?

    Again, I want to thank you for this great program. If it's possible, please improve analyze function even more, to make it even better than Fritz :D

  12. It is a good idea.
    In the next release will be included.
    Thank you very much.
