Version 8 step 9: next web

New step with some news:

  • Scoring system is changed, based on a new web (today tomorrow I don´t know). Now when posting your scores, changes are done inmediately and web send feedback to user about its position in relation to other users.

  • New web is hosted in Openshift, and it is programmed in python, then it is possible (to me) a live scoring system. 

  • Improves in "Playing against any engine":
    • It can be selected engines that try to emulate playing style of GMs (created by Michele Tumabrello).

    • Configurations: allows to save active configuration with a name to restore in future. 

Updated (25-10-2013)-9.1:
  • Fixed a bug
  • Added: copy to clipboard FEN position in analysis window (M.Larson) 
Updated (27-10-2013)-9.2:
  • Fixed bug about saving video configurations.
  • Added: +button in variations panel, to launch directly an engine to respond your moves. (ADT)
Updated (27-10-2013)-9.3:
  • Fixed bug in "Opponents for Young Players" option.
Updated (28-10-2013)-9.4:
  • Fixed bug, when playing against Gaia engine.


  1. In Lucas-Elo the second game doesn't end after the checkmate.

    1. There is a problem with Gaia engine (some debug lines using this engine and I forgot to delete).
      Can be this your case ?

  2. It look like something wrong with analysis points in "Competition". If you give me your mail (or other services), I'll send you some screenshots.

  3. Lucas Chess seems to have the 50 move rule programmed incorrectly. The rule states 50 moves by both players, but Lucas Chess just claimed a draw after 50 total moves, 25 by each player.

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:

Setting analysis parameters

Since version 2.04, you can change the parameters used by the program to determine whether a move is good or bad and also the elo calculated for an analyzed game. The parameters are as follows: limit_score Default value: 2000 Minimum value: 1000 Maximum value: 4000 Data type: integer Determines the score in centipawns from which the position is considered to be totally won, that the probability of winning is 100%. curve_degree Default value: 50 Minimum value: 1 Maximum value: 100 Data type: decimal percentage Expresses the correlation between the score in centipawns and the probability of winning/losing. It associates -limit_score with 0 and +limit_score with 100. Curve formula created based in  python-chess/Engine/Score/wdl    difmate_inaccuracy Default value: 3 Minimum value: 1 Maximum value: 99 Data type: integer If the difference between the best move and the move made means going
