  1. Very very NICE!!!!
    Elo perfomance total and in opening, middle game and end game

  2. You must install some libraries. There are the dependencies in

  3. Hey Lucas, just recently found your software and it looks really helpful, especially creating training files from my own blunders/mistakes. But I'm having trouble getting that aspect of it to work.

    What I'd like to do is create a training file from several games, but I can't get it to work. I've loaded my games into a database, then I go into that database and into utilities and create tactics training but no matter if I have 1 game or several games highlighted it asks me to name the file and then shows a percentage bar at 2% or 5% but it never moves from there. I've left it running for hours just to see with no results.

    What am I doing wrong? I've looked through configuration to see if I haven't set something up but I can't find anything, and I've gone through the documentation that I could find on Lucas Chess' website but not finding a solution. Can you assist?

    1. Send me example data to lukasmonk at gmail, this is more easy to analyze the problem.

  4. Automatic save of games in transsiberian do not include 'date' field.

  5. I think i found a bug, after playing 200 of the learn tactics by repetition, checkmates from the FCIS database, attacking the king in castle m2-m7. It crashed out of the trainer and I had to delete that session and start over. Is this an issue or do you always have to start over after exiting?

    1. Perhaps it is a bug of the program, but it is very difficult to know which is the problem. I´ll study the way used to save results to do it more often.

    2. I should also add that prior to crashing it started having issues moving to the next puzzle after correcting solving the current position. This started around puzzle 196.
      Thank you for the excellent program Lucas.

  6. Hello and thanks for the great software. I had a suggestion which I sent to your mail too. I think a tournament system where the player can compete against a chosen group of the personalities, in either the swiss or round-robin formats, would be a great addition.

    1. Hi, more people ask me for the same suggestion, I have in mind, thanks.

  7. Prodeo 2.4 engine has different personalities.
    I had mount the engine via WB2uci.exe and I've got an access only to four personalities instead of 13.
    I've no idea what is wrong.
    it is possible to mount this engine via rebeluci.exe too, but result is the same.

    1. You must edit wb2uci.eng file and change line 21 to:
      Personality=setvar personality personal\%s.eng|combo|ProDeo|Absolute Novice Player|Alexander Alekhine|Anatoli Karpov|Average Club Player|Garry Kasparov|Judith Polgar|lose|Michael Tal|ProDeo|Q3 - Tactical Engine|Robert Fischer|Strong Club Player|Vishy Anand

  8. Could it be done with the mouse instead of a key on the keyboard for the use of the arrows?

    1. I'm working on this right now, the next version will bring news on this issue.

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
