Re: Fairymax is using 25% of cpu

I would not think 25% cpu ultilisation should noticeably slow your system down.
Perhaps some unusual disk I/O, or some other related thing is the problem.

Re: scid - pgn database size limitation?

I am still extracting one of those gigantic lichess databases out of curiosity. The one I have downloaded (2018/01) probably will be around 35GB! decompressed. Yeah.. the problem is modern PGN files can be so big. I'll just mention my new command line utility sc_filter_pgn.tcl (in 'scripts' in the ...

Re: Stripping a pgn

Anyone knowing of a trick to strip the pgn to just the moves played for both sides? Even better, if this could be done with the whole pgn file. Or, alternatively, does anyone know if there are stripped TCEC pgn files for download somewhere? Thanks, hope someone helps. Using Scid vs PC allows strip ...

Scid vs PC CQL 5.2 feature

Maybe some people here use CQL ? Lionel has written a CQL search feature for Scid vs PC. It's all in subversion, and here's some windows betas. Currently sort feature is unimplemented, but it may be included by 4.19 in a month or two. 32bit: https://sourceforge.net/projects/scidvspc/files/windows-be...

Re: Arena - ChessGUI : activation of the feature reuse/-xreu

ScidvsPC always kills and starts a new instance of the engine for every game. I guess it'd be possible to change this behaviour... and make a 1000 other improvements :) ... but... Actually, it's kindof robust for me at the moment. We've been working on an integrated CQL search feature. There are som...

Re: Scid vs PC with CQL , build issue

Yeah... we'll probably have to do this. Oz has it working.

Just that there's no joy for either of us using this OS.

Re: Scid vs PC with CQL , build issue

Ozkan is a compiler guru :) , and he said there wasn't a C++11 one available. But i think we can compile with VCC if we have too... just very incovenient, and the binaries wouldn't be really tested as we've always used mingwx. I was just hoping someone has seen this before and has a solution. I've a...

Scid vs PC with CQL , build issue

Scid vs PC has recently added support for CQL (5.1) query searches (thanks Lionel). The code is in subversion, and it seems to go ok :). https://sourceforge.net/p/scidvspc/code/HEAD/tree/ But we can't get it going properly with our cross compilers. We don't have a cross compiler with c++11 support. ...

Re: Chess Insight new app for Mac

I thought it must have it's own DB format ? But they are short on the details here.
