Turn on lights in one line:
  • useful for daily training.

  1. Nice! Thank you Lucas. This is amazing. I will run it and see if it is working good(Test).

    1. There is a bug when a player is selected, when some alias are indicated these are not taken into account. I'll fix it when more bugs comes along.

    2. The database statistics looks very nice. Yes there are some issues with alias. But overall very nice feature.

  2. I have done some testing and so far it is working good. You don't know how powerful Lucas is for training. I looked at stats generated in Lucas from my games and so amazing what useful information about my game. Some of the openings I thought I was good at but apparently not and the other way round. Also looking at stats for players like GM Carlsen and other GMs gave me insights into their strengths, weaknesses and their frequently played openings. Thank you Lucas.

    1. Thanks for trying it. What I'm glad about is that it might come in handy.

Version 11.17: update of Honey and Stockfish

This update mainly contains the upgrade of two of the main engines: Honey formerly McCain, which is the default tutor used by the program, now updated to version XI. The author is Michael Byrne ( link ) Stockfish, version 11 ( link ) There are some bugs fixed thanks to LinuxOnTheDesktop and others....

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. It is still in pre-release mode, pending enough feedback to give it sufficient stability. The installation is done in parallel with the previous version, not interfering with each other. This means that both installations can be maintained at the same time. A version installable and other portable can be downloaded from :
