Version 8.04: some bugs fixed

Bugs fixed:
  • Saving PGN files, bad encoding type, now UTF-8 is used (chessfollower).
  • Play like a grandmaster, don´t work (Lolou).
  • Director, don´t work (Michele).
  • Database-Summary results are reversed when black move (xpdnc).


  1. thanks for the update sir lucas.

  2. Sir Can i suggest? If can you make a training on trapping a queen? that is attackig early or maybe in mid game, especially when the time queen attacks on the g and b file.Its like mating a king, but a queen moves so many squares compare to king thats why its so hard for me as a newbie, I guess its good thing.

    1. It is possible to prepare a tactic training to learn these moves. This is a very simple way to do that you want.
      You want something more complex that is difficult to implement.

  3. i also suggest a training on how to defend an opponents mate, like what piece is needed to sacrifice, what square does the king need to move if its in check to avoid checkmate,which is the best to defend a piece as sacrifice to cancel the mate, and how to counterattack when opponent is making mating net. Sometimes defense is most people weaknesses, and that's what i want to improve.
    that's all sir. i hope you will recognize my ideas.

  4. I made a custom position to play against stockfish DD and, because of my huge lead from the start, I was able to promote all of my pawns. However, after I promoted a few of my pawns, Stockfish DD started to move slowly even when there was only 1 legal move.

    1. Analyzing the game gave some pretty weird scores... such as "Black mates in 814" while he (black) has a long king and I have a bunch of queens and a king and 2 pawns.

    2. I guess stockfish team fixed these problems and I will can change version in program.

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
