Development version 11.00.16: challenge 101


  • Read PGN file, now support the selection of multiple files (unknown)
  • Challenge 101: new game to the beginning. It is about solving up to 10 positions of all types, with assigning a score. The program saves the last 10 scores, and you can check the ones made from the Training menu/Personal training.


  1. Thank you Lucas for adding multiple PGN read. Lucas is the best and is even becoming better!

  2. Hi lucas,

    I just wanted to know.
    How to play a blitz against an engine with an increment each move ? (3+2 for example)

    1. Menu Play-Play against any engine, Time tab, Seconds added per move....

  3. I'm sorry in this tab I have only :

    "total minute" "increment"

    "increment minutes"

    "zeitnot alarm"

    (my version is french)

  4. I don't know... Here's what hapen when I play a 5 minute game with a 1 minute increment.

    I played in 3 second each move and I didn't get any increment.

    (if you want the translation of what's written in french in the first picture it's :
    "total minute" "increment"
    "increment minutes"
    "zeitnot alarm" )

    1. 1. Image = you have 6 minutes(5 and 1=increment minutes) and the engine 5 minutes. -> 2.Image

      Field Increment = seconds added per move

      Total minute= 3
      Increment= 2
      Increment minutes=0

  5. I finally understood. As you can see in the picture "Increment minutes" didn't work (it doesn't add 1 minute each move as you can see on the third picture) . But now that I use only "increment" it works.

    I thought that increment meant "at what move do the increment kick in"...

    thanks a lot !

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
