    1. In the first versions of the program, it was allowed to play between computers (via ip), but I removed it without any complaints, as it is not easy to maintain.

  3. Why can't I download the program in English, although the installation wizard is in english

    1. You have a previous installation with the language changed. But it is easy to config: Press Options (icon with a nut)-Configuration (first option): change the language to English an Accept.

  4. This is a great program for playing and learning but I've noticed something odd. When I finish a quick game against an "Opponent for young players"
    the program asks me whether to restart or not, I click "yes" and the game freezes. It does not start a new game nor can I cancel or restart the current game. It just doesn't react to any button I click except of "Takeback". I need to close and restart the whole application then. (Win7 x64)

  5. Thank you Lucas for your excellent work. Just a quick problem which has stopped me using Lucas chess to make instructional videos is that if I want to add graphics such as arrows when I click on the squares to target nothing happens so I can't use the function keys to add anything.

    Thanks again,
    Josh

    1. I have not feedback about this option, and I do not use it.

      You could press F1 by example and use the mouse to create an arrow, or whatever is assigned to your F1 key.

    1. Thank you. The jump to Android is too complex and laborious, I have made some attempt, but immediately I have lost the desire to continue.

    1. Yes, it is a bug of 11.10a,I don´t know why.
      You need to reinstall.
      Or download: http://lucaschess.pythonanywhere.com/static/updates11/update1111.zip
      And uncompress in lucaschess folder, maintaining folder struct.

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 ./LucasChessR123_LINUX.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: https://maiachess.com/

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.
