  1. Thanks Lucas. I am using Lucas Chess more and more. One question: how do you set the slow move of pieces?

    2. I have done a test now without problems, perhaps file bug.log in the installation folder of LC explain your problem, it is a text file with lines of code where each bug has been produced..

    4. Hi Ban, I like to have an Android version, but it is too much work, perhaps in the future when python (tool I use) and the libraries were more compatible.

  3. Hi Lucas,

    I have version 9.06a but cannot find any of the generation 2 engines. I typically use ELO-Rating for playing, but those engines are never listed when the list shows the engines that can be selected for play.

    To update to version 9.06a, I used the "Search for Updates" feature in the Information menu. Clicking on "About" in the Information menu confirms that I do have version 9.06a.

    Am I supposed to download the generation 2 engines separately?

    Thanks!

    1. I haven´t yet calculated the elo of this engines.
      I am working in a way of calc this with a simplified method, but I am now testing.

  5. Hi Lucas,
    I noticed for the last few versions that when playing Black..the scoring is always negative..is that correct? When I use Tutor, my move is always a better point value, then the Tutor;s suggestion. When I play white, it is not like this.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi, the program uses a fixed scoring system, if positive white is winning and if negative black. In the first versions the score was from user point of view.
      Now, if you are playing black, less positive numbers is better.
