Re: Suicide chess tablebases (stalemated player wins)

I have also added a generator for atomic chess just in case someone is interested. Hi, does the TB generator here https://github.com/syzygy1/tb for Atomic Chess support 7 men generation for Atomic Chess? I would like to generate certain 7 men TBS if possible so i wonder if it supports them. Also ho...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

There is a header in the Engine Output window that shows which thinking info is displayed / possible to display; right-clicking the name of the info hides or shows that info from that time on. If it shows 0 all the time for tbhits it must be a problem with UCI2WB. I know about right clicking but it...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

..... Latest fix for Stockfish(variant) solved the problem with Winboard and now Stockfish can use Atomic Chess tablebases in Winboard. One small issue remains that Winboard does not show TB hits. (in command prompt TB hits are shown normally with this new Stockfish) It's not a big deal but maybe y...

Re: best server for computers to play variants currently?

Yea, it's real easy to get a game against stockfish. lichess has stockfish built in, and it's available for download. But that gets boring pretty quick, and there is no human involved to chat with during the games. That was actually one of my favourite parts back when FICS was variant central, gett...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

Well, in engine-engine games WinBoard would sent a "computer" command to both players (after the variant and level commands) to inform them their opponent is an engine, and this is a configurable command, which could be altered though the -computerString option (e.g. to send a hard-coded egtpath co...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

Another difference is that UCI2WB does not capitalize syzygyPath when it tries to set it, but according to the UCI specs this should not matter, as option names are supposed to be case insensitive. I tried this in cmd mode and does not matter it still accepts it so this is not the problem. The diff...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

The other thing seems to be a Stockfish problem; it first sees 145 EGT, but then it has second thoughts and reports it sees none. Could be that one is for the first path you give, and the other for the second. Not really as i gave just one path. I just asked for how to handle 2 or more without usin...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

.... Like Ferdy says, you might not have permission to write in the WinBoard folder when running WinBoard. Sometimes attempts to write in a folder that WinBoard considers 'public' (like the Program Files sub-tree) are redirected to some user-specific 'roaming' folder instead. Then they are written,...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

Oh and also why Stockfish does not use syzygy tablebases in Winboard with this command? :cry:
"stockfishx64-modern.exe" -fd "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinBoard-AA\WinBoard\WinBoard\Stockfish" -fUCI -firstOptions "SyzygyPath=E:\syzygy"

Winboard.debug file missing.

I use the Winboard 4.9.191026 and as it seems i'm not able to create a Winboard.debug file! I try to put -debug in engine options e.g bihasa32.exe -debug /fd="C:\Program Files (x86)\WinBoard-AA\WinBoard\WinBoard\Bihasa32" /variant="gothic" as also in "Additional Options" in the start with /debug as ...
