Version 6.0 dev4 with favourites and a daily test

Version 6.0 dev 4 : LucasChessPortable60dev4.exe

Changed the version number from 5.5 to 6.0, because there are important changes, and some of them will take some development.

  • Game against an engine of your choice :
    • New options to set strength : High level, Intermediate level and Low level, based on probabilities. High level select a move based in a list where better moves are more likely, and so on. (it remains the use of personalities as proposed laser in immortalchess forum).
    • Select a book :  then opponent select moves firstly from the polyglot book choosen. (thanks to baddadza for this idea)

  • Training favorites, to simplify the selection of frequently used options :

  • New option in Training : Your daily test : you must solve 5 positions, with each answer, then calculate the difference in points with an engine solution. Only one result is saved each day, the last.

  • New feature to adjust the sensitivity of the tutor. Then tutor will not appear unless the points difference is greater than a fixed points or a percentage or both. (thanks to Keith McCabe for this idea).

  • Training - Utilities - Create your own game : it also saves analysis (thanks to Nguyen Tuan Long for this idea)
  • Updated Komodo 3.0
  • Some bugs solved ( thanks to bulldozer, bolokay, ...)

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.
