Versión 5.1 with kibitzers

I have found some more bugs in version 5.0, and I have decided to launch a new version.
This new version includes the possibility of launching advisers to analyze the positions on the board, for its development, I have based on thorough explanations of Daniel Trebejo.

Access to this new function is done through the +Options menu.

Initial menu
First, you must create a new one and configure it.

There are three types, 
  • First : make the analysis of the response to the current position.
  • Second : seeks out threats (I do not understand their use), calculate what the rival would do if he could move again.
  • Third : shows possible moves and with the possiblity to analyze any of them.

You can :
  • create all kibitzers that you want.
  • launch all kibitzers that you want, limit is your pc resources.
  • move and resize the kibitzer-window, it is remembered in the next launch.

Other options, are : 
  • Terminate.
  • Pause-Continue : if you have 3 kibitzers and your pc processor smell something burning, you can pause any of them.
  • Copy to clipboard last analysis to add to variants.
  • In third type (possible moves), double click over a move to analyze response to this move.

Double click over Qxh2+ and analysis begin.


  1. Sorry, don't know where to put this query but this page seems to be perfect for it. How can I increase the size of chess board in kibitzer window?

    1. Hi,
      In the same way that all other boards, right button over a corner of the board, then appears a popup menu,....

LINUX - First binary version

The first official binary version of Lucas Chess on Linux has just been released. It has only been made possible by the great work done by Laudecir Daniel , choosing and compiling the 67 engines, as well as laying the groundwork so that the binaries can be more widely used and others such as shortcut creation, installation scripts, ...... In addition,  Graham O'Neill  has provided Linux-specific drivers for several digital boards. This version has two limitations : 64-bit Linux OS only. Minimum GNU libc version: 2.26 (ldd --version shows it) Installation has been made as simple as possible: The installer is a .sh file, generated with the  makeself  tool, and can be downloaded from: SourceForge , GitHub The file must be run from a terminal with user permissions only: sh ./ Launches a GUI with very basic options: Install: Installs in LucasChessR folder inside the home user folder. Generates a shortcut in Applications > Games Launch the application at the end

R 1.06 Maia

 This update contains a major improvement with the inclusion of Maia. Maia is a neural network chess engine, created with the purpose of making her movements as human as possible. The Maia creation team has prepared 9 versions, from 1100 to 1900 of elo, and thus they have been included in Lucas Chess. You have all the information about Maia at:

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.
