  1. Do you plan on adding a database management system to Lucas? Would love to use your program to track personal games, keep a grandmaster master database etc. Maybe use SCID's format.

    Thank you

    1. Now there are a minimal database system, (Tools-Openings-Personal opening guide-Games). But yes, my idea is extend this, and improve edition of each game. In relation to struct, surely I use my own struct, because it can be adapted to my requisites.

    2. Thanks for the reply and noting the minimal database. Could you move it to another sub menu:

      Tools->Databases->Master | Personal | Create New

      That way it can be separated from opening work/training.

      Keep up the good work the program is very good and better then most commercial offerings.

      Thank you

    For technical reasons I could not post pictures but describe by words only, sorry


    1. select Training -> Training mates -> Mate in 3

    2. click Level and go to Level 1, Block 3

    3. go to position 5/7

    Description of this position

    White(to move): Kh4, Ra7, Pb7,g4,h5
    Black: Kh6, Rb4, Pa4

    4. After 1.b8=Q Rxg4+ 2.Kxg4 a4, the White Queen at b8 is indragable?!

    Thank you for your attention to this.

    Sincerely
    Yi Zili
