Version 11.10a: Opening lines, training with engines

Opening lines
    New training against some engines, user plays games against engines with some conditions:

    • Mandatory moves: in the first part, the user and the engine must each make moves defined in the opening lines created.
    • Moves until the control: for the second part, the motor moves without restrictions and the user must select one of the lines or another movement if not provided for in one of the lines.
    • At the end, the controlling engine calculates the score of the first move out of the lines and the score of the last move, and this difference must be less than that set in "Maximum number of centipawns...", to move to the next engine.
    • There are 5 levels, each level change increases the time thought by the rival engine. (0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8 secs)
    • Bunch of engines: user select a block of 8 engines to play against in each level.

    Import of Personal Opening Guides and Export to PGN (proposed by Jonathan Cremers)

   New type of kibitzer, now is a polyglot book, an easy way to consult a book when analyzing a game.

Version R

New version of the program. Continuist at user level with the previous one, but with great internal changes. This new version has been mainly tried: Update the code to a current version of the compiler, from python 2.7 to python 3.7 (based in a previous work of Alfonso Solbes). Update the graphic library, from version 4 to 5 of qt, via pyside2. Improve folder organization, with Linux support in mind. Negative consequences: It is incompatible with Windows XP. The data is not compatible with previous versions of Lucas Chess. The weight of the installer has doubled, currently around 120 Mb and the disk installation occupies 338 Mb.
