Perhaps Gerhard or Peter can chime in and say which repository is the "master" for OEX?
Gerhard kindly confirmed that https://github.com/gkalab/chessenginesupport-androidlib is the master repository going forward.

Re: Ambiguous: UCI and option Clear Hash

As a user I would be surprised if buttons did not have an immediate effect, and I never considered the method you describe. But come to think of it, I am not sure it would ever make any observable difference, though. Perhaps if there was a button that toggled something in the engine. (But why would...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

Thank you. Unfortunately the https://code.google.com/archive/p/chessenginesupport-androidlib page is broken: all links bring to 404 and code is malformed. Interesting. The main page and description are there, but most links indeed are broken. How about https://github.com/gkalab/chessenginesupport-a...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

From the chess programming wiki I understood that there's a chessbase-format for packaging chess-programs for Android and that C-f-A also supports this. Is this how it currently works? E.g. with the importing from sd-card feature etc? Or is there also an other way to package things? If so: can you ...

Re: Ambiguous: UCI and option Clear Hash

So options of type 'button' are treated a bit different from other engine-defined options: when the buttons appearing in the engine-settings dialog are pressed this will send a 'setoption' command to the engine immediately , and that command will differ from 'setoption' commands for other types, in...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

CfA v. Micah: 2-8 Unfortunately no PGNs - only the last is stored? All games of a tournament and/or match are stored, of course. By default in tour.pgn (regular games go to games.pgn), but you can change these names in settings to anything you want. Again, make sure to enable the "Storage" permissi...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

The binary is at http://vanheusden.com/m-aart thanks in advance!! It fails for: e2e4 c7c5 f2f4 I think I know what it is. The engine is not robust against whitespace in the UCI command from the GUI (Chess for Android uses two spaces between moves). See the output below. # ./m-aart uci id name Micah...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

Also: sometimes my program crashes. In adb logcat I saw a process faulting because of SIGABRT, probably my chess program. How can you debug such a thing? Is there a way to connect gdb to it or so? Last question: am I right that c-f-a automatically switches to an other chess engine when the one you'...
