    To update:


      1. Hi, Lucas.
        I wonder what should happen if I click "Tools->Database->Complete games"? Now it shows nothing and my bug.log full of this:

        Traceback (most recent call last):
        File "Code\QT\WBase.pyo", line 259, in procesarAccion

        File "Code\Procesador.pyo", line 468, in procesarAccion

        File "Code\Procesador.pyo", line 714, in tools

        File "Code\Procesador.pyo", line 732, in database

        File "Code\QT\PantallaDatabase.pyo", line 67, in __init__

        File "Code\QT\PantallaDatabase.pyo", line 94, in inicializa

        File "Code\QT\WBG_Games.pyo", line 181, in actualiza
        KeyError: 'alm'


        1. I can´t replicate the problem.
          The best option would be that you send me that file with the problem, to trace when it is loaded.

        2. Which file are you talking about? I simple unpacked portable distribution to a new dir, started Lucas Chess, clicked "Tools->Database->Complete games" and nothing happened. Since there is no proper documentation I don't know if something suppose to happen. The bug.log file is full of lines I posted in the first message (they just repeating).
          Maybe this blog is not a proper place to report issues? Maybe it is better to use github as I did with the UCI "type string" thing?

        3. Fixed and published.
          This and Github are good places to report issues, use that you are more comfortable. To do a feedback of pure code GitHub I believe has a better editor, but there is no problem if you send from here. If you want you can send me directly to my mail.

        4. Thank you very much and happy holidays!

      2. Can someone explain what the purpose of the new "Save positions to FNS/PGN" feature is? I don't even understand what it's for.

        1. If you have a lot of positions (massive work) and you want to solve them and convert in a PGN file or a FNS. With the FNS you can train tactics in Lucas Chess, with the PGN same but with other GUIs.

      3. Is this a 64 bit program?
        I noticed there is a shorter list of engines...What happened?
        Great work by the way!

      4. Version 10.10.1
        Windows 7 64 --NO Sound--

      5. I am using the latest version but I cannot post my score. It says "An error occured...."

      6. I can see that you are an expert at your field! I am launching a website soon, and your information will be very useful for me.. Thanks for all your help and wishing you all the success in your business.

      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
