Development version 11.00.12: bug fix release

Thanks to the feedback of the last post of this blog I have compiled a new release:

  • Hamster engine return to 0.5 (jojoB)
  • Error in database filters (Patricio Cainzos)
  • Elo perfomance of the game, provisional change (pending of study of Michele Tumbarello) to give more effect to blunders (MR)
  • Lost points in the analysis graph, now can be hidden (Giovanni di Maria)


  1. Hi thank you very much for the update. I think now that the graph, to be perfect:

    1) it should be useful a button to copy the graph into the clipboard

    2) the limit if graph should be dynamic and not to stop to 3.0

    Thank you very much

  2. Hi Lucas, thanks for supplying us with such a great gadget. Only issue I have is board size in the training units i.e. "find the best move". It is so small, it's hardly usable. Is there a way to adjust that board size as well ?

    Running on Windows10 with 3000x2000 resolution.

    Thanks for helping,


    1. Right button on the left-top of the board. This is valid to all boards.

  3. Hi,
    Where can i find the differences between Stockfish and McBrain? Thank you very much,

    1. You have info and links in:

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:

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.
