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, ...)

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
