  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.

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.

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
