Re: Anyone know of a way to download FR fens(chess960) by FR position number?

For me, I use often Pulsar 2009 to test my own engines. I would be glad to see a new version for Windows. :wink: A few people tell me they run the engine. Always happy to hear that is getting use. As to improvements, well so far while i've not forced it, but bugs have not taken me to the engine. If...

Re: Anyone know of a way to download FR fens(chess960) by FR position number?

I"m working with logging FR games, chess 960, to PGN and I thought they were cataloged by position number like this is FR position #89 of 960. Are there any official sites that keep this type of data like the fens that make up what FR boards or positions? Is this a state tracked in the FR PGN at al...

Re: Lantern Chess an ICC Interface has been removed from Google play. no warning. no real idea why

... so were you like "oh crap, I missed the sh*t" ? :lol: Well it was a little pile of sh*t. But it was a bit more of a miss perhaps then I had indicated. You get used to hearing people chat you ignore them particularly when your screen shoting rapidly and not paying much attention. but it was like...

Re: Lantern Chess an ICC Interface has been removed from Google play. no warning. no real idea why

I did 16 new screen shots recently, 8 for tablet and 8 for phone, and apparently the tablet console shot screen capture captured someone saying a bad word "sh*t" but without the *. I updated that screen shot and it let me republish so hoping that fixes it. Everyone knocks apple but apple would have ...

Re: Accessiblity - Play that song, The one that makes me go all night long

I have extended accessibility now with our first translation. OpeningTree is accessible in Italian https://itunes.apple.com/it/app/openingtree-chess-openings/id882614935?mt=8 My blind friend convinced me it would be more accessible if the voice over was in the language of the speakers. Hoping to do ...

Could US Huawei ban extend to US Chess App Developers?

if the Huawei ban stands one would expect a Huawei App store. There are already other android app stores, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Android_app_stores Could a sustained US Ban on Huawei mean chess apps by Americans could not be distributed in a possible Huawei App store by Americans? I d...

Re: Sideloading on iOS now Possible

The situation may change with the current anti-trust court proceedings that Apple is facing. They may be forced to open iOS for competing stores, in which case something like F-Droid could not only allow a proper chess GUI with separate engine executables, but also full GPL compliance. After hearin...

Though you can side load on your own device for free. Android is no walk in the park. Any development is a so...
