Version 11.03: some bugs fixed

Bugs fixed:

  • Analisys, reduced the number of nags produced by analysis (Giovanni di María)
  • Database, save to PGN when select codec = same as file.
  • Playing against a game when mate.
  • Database: to create polyglot books doesn´t works
  • Training positions, bad message when tutor disabled and the training is guided (variator)

  • Scanner of positions, added Alt left, Alt key-left, Alt key-up, Alt key-right, Alt key-down to scan non-square cells
  • Turn on the lights, added more info

  1. Thanks for the very interesting program.
    I faced a problem after analyzing a game, saving it in PGN format and opening this file in Aquarium. The moves after a move evaluation symbol (e.g. "!!") are not displayed. At this position in the PGN file I find e.g. "$ $3". After the removal of the first "$" Aquarium is able to show the following moves.

    1. Thank you very much, I have fixed the bug, if you want to fix in your copy, you need to download the file Jugada.pyo and replace this file in your installation copy (it is in the subfolder Code), the file is:

    2. Wonderful. Now the PGN file is correct. Thanks.

  2. Elo perfomance is doing wrong measurement. Elo performance is very low even though there are not many errors

    1. If you have a game where this is clearly showed then send me to lukasmonk at gmail, by example.

  3. Hello, how can I edit an external engine according to your elo rating? I want to set up for different elo rating, ranging from 1000 to 2800 from 100 to 100.

    1. You can start by working with the Tools-Engines-STS option, creating a new section, and testing at different depths, starting with 3, for example, and increasing it to 2000.
      The associated score in the elo option is a mixture of this STS and other external, playing against actual games.
      One alternative is to play a tournament against a 2000 engine, with a fixed depth or a fixed time.

    2. Thanks for the info. Is there any pre-move option? Would be useful in blitz game.

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
