  1. I think that this bug is present for a long time, but I've just tried it in latest version... "Only add better variant" actually only ads the best variant (checked in saved pgn). Tried multiple engines and got same result. It would be useful to have both options - "Show better variants" and "Only show the best variant" if one would prefer to save shorter analysis.

    1. I don´t understand, as there is one option "only one move" and other "only better", and you can select one or both.
      If you want you can send me a partial of pgn with examples you want.

  2. Fics-ELO hangs when the game completes in this version. At least it has every time for me. I'll try to narrow down which version has this happen for the first time.

    1. I can´t replicate the problem, I have playing two times and no problem.
      Reason is that I I don´t know the context that causes the bug.
      You can send me file bug.log in the program folder, perhaps it has more information.

    2. Thanks for the reply. The bug.log is below. I hadn't checked this file before the games so these may be unrelated. I'll try to replicate with a clean log file tomorrow.

    3. Hi Chris, these errors say me that you want to paste a pgn game and a bug appears. In this case, the pgn you want to paste would be a help to me, to replicate the problem.

    4. Hi Lucas. Sorry for the delay in replying. The bug.log looks like a false lead. The problem occurred again this evening, playing Fics-Elo 1200. The bug.log file was not updated. CPU was 0%, memory at 63MB. Task manager said "Not responding". I have a screenshot of the program at the time if you'd like me to send it to you. Just let me know where.

    5. One option is my email: lukasmonk at gmail.

  3. Verified that the Fics-ELO bug I mentioned earlier happens in v9 step2

  5. default theme graphic for soft is very bright, difficulty seeing, you can change graphic pieces and chessboard example chess24.com (graphic chessboard fusion)

  6. You have a lot of themes to select, or you can create a new one.
    Pressing right button over the left-up corner, and selecting Color, you can choose one. Also you can edit one.

    In relation to pieces, in the popup there is an option to do this.
    Also in the Gorgonian web http://gorgonian.weebly.com/lucas-chess.html you have more piece set.

    1. To change board colors, other way is pressing Options-Colors-Main Board.
      To flip board: pressing circle indicating color playing.

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 ./LucasChessR123_LINUX.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: https://maiachess.com/

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.
