    1. I can´t replicate the problem in my pc, it works (and when 9.07 I could replicate).
      If you use the update system, one alternative is to install it again.

    1. There is a file = bug.log, perhaps it has the error line code (to lukasmonk at gmail). Although I believe that this problem can be fixed with a new installation, you can test it downloading the portable version in any folder, installing and excuting lucas.exe.

  4. I cannot use the program using my Windows XP 32 bits. Please check. Every time that I open the program, no program is running. The program cannot open. Anyway, there's no cautions or prompting message. Please, fix. Thank you!

    1. Hi Ban, you could test the portable version and from a cmd window. I don´t know which is the problem, the program is generated from a virtual XP.

    1. They should be able to calculate more than 4 positions each time. If you are running an instance of any of them, then write uci and Intro, the MultiPV option should appear.

  6. Hi I like lucas chess a lot, one question, why kibitzer mode is not multithreaded? (I am using stockfish 7). It is supposed to be multithreaded because it is engine dependant, and stockfish 7 is multithreaded engine. In settings for stockfish I set number of cores to 7, but task manager shows only one core is working...

    1. This is something managed by engine itself. LC only send to engine setoption name Threads value 7. You know that 7 threads are used because %CPU to stockfish is more than 87.5%. (if you PC has 8 cores).

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.
