  • About colors and translations by Max Aloyau
  • Fide-Fics/elo calculations wrong when some position of checkmate. (Oleg)
  • Bad link to simplex engine (Xema)


  1. Thank you for this wonderful Program! But since I've updated to 9.03a (my previous version was 9.03) I discovered that after an analysis of a game the graphics are not shown anymore. Any idea what could be wrong? (My System: Windows 7 SP1, 64bit)

    1. And what about pressing Utilities, Analysis, Show graphics ?

  2. Thank you for the quick reply! Perhaps my comment should have been more verbose (mea culpa!). I've tried this too. I get the message 'One moment please...' and after that, nothing happens. If I'm the only one experiencing this problem, perhaps I should download the latest version and try again...

    1. Yes, it is better to test last version.

    2. Well, now I can confirm that updating via 'Information' > 'Search for Updates' caused the problem (at least for me - for some reason). Downloading and running the program again showed no strange things so far.
      Perhaps it was only me experiencing this unexpected result, because some other odd things happened on my computer lately (a BSoD for example).

    3. I have done now an updating from 9.02->9.03a and I have not any problem, I guess this is not the example correct to trap the bug.

  3. Hi Lucas!
    Is there a typo in the article heading? I think it is Staunton and not Stauton. Just for your info :)
    I love this software and will make an article soon in my blog

    1. Thanks, changed.
      I will watch your web to read the article.

  4. Hi,
    first of all, thank you Lucas for this amazing chess program! I started to use it from version 8 and this new version is way better: more training, more engines, ecc...

    but I have to report a problem (a bug, probably?): when I start a tournament between engines and I choose also the "roce0.0390" engine, when I start the matches appear an error window, that says:"roce: Path does not exist. EnginesWindows\roce\roce39" and the tournament doesn't start. it's not an important bug, I am sure you can fix it for the next version.
    finally, I want to suggest to you a new feature for the next version: could be really cool the possibility for the human player to join a tournament between engines :)

    1. Roce will work in the next release.
      The possibility of joining to a tournament is something that more people asked me. I add your idea to the list of suggestions.
      Thank you very much.

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
