    1. In the first versions of the program, it was allowed to play between computers (via ip), but I removed it without any complaints, as it is not easy to maintain.

  3. Why can't I download the program in English, although the installation wizard is in english

    1. You have a previous installation with the language changed. But it is easy to config: Press Options (icon with a nut)-Configuration (first option): change the language to English an Accept.

  4. This is a great program for playing and learning but I've noticed something odd. When I finish a quick game against an "Opponent for young players"
    the program asks me whether to restart or not, I click "yes" and the game freezes. It does not start a new game nor can I cancel or restart the current game. It just doesn't react to any button I click except of "Takeback". I need to close and restart the whole application then. (Win7 x64)

  5. Thank you Lucas for your excellent work. Just a quick problem which has stopped me using Lucas chess to make instructional videos is that if I want to add graphics such as arrows when I click on the squares to target nothing happens so I can't use the function keys to add anything.

    Thanks again,
    Josh

    1. I have not feedback about this option, and I do not use it.

      You could press F1 by example and use the mouse to create an arrow, or whatever is assigned to your F1 key.

    1. Thank you. The jump to Android is too complex and laborious, I have made some attempt, but immediately I have lost the desire to continue.

    1. Yes, it is a bug of 11.10a,I don´t know why.
      You need to reinstall.
      Or download: http://lucaschess.pythonanywhere.com/static/updates11/update1111.zip
      And uncompress in lucaschess folder, maintaining folder struct.

Update, from Information menu, Search for updatesPortable:  LucasChessPortable1117.exeInstallable:  InsLucasChess1117.exe

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.
It is still in pre-release mode, pending enough feedback to give it sufficient stability.
The installation is done in parallel with the previous version, not interfering with each other. This means that both installations can be maintained at the same time.
A version installable and other portable can be downloaded from : https://github.com/lukasmonk/lucaschessR/releases
