Re: Certabo, Millennium and Novag (Citrine, UCB) drivers

I've just released version 1.4 of the Certabo driver which adds support for the Certabo Bluetooth module. The download is on my web page and it will be included in the next version of LucasChess (R 1.18 I think).

No changes to the Millennium or Novag drivers for this.

Re: Certabo, Millennium and Novag (Citrine, UCB) drivers

I downloaded LucasChess and it looks great! I own a Certabo board and when using the Certabo software I get big delays using the Messchess engines (old dedicated computer EPROMS). Your GUI is so nice that I was wondering if there is any way to get those engines running under LucasChess. Thanks in a...

Certabo, Millennium and Novag (Citrine, UCB) drivers

I have updated my drivers for the Certabo, Millennium Chesslink and Novag UCB boards and I have also added a Novag Citrine driver. These allow those boards to be used in Arena, LucasChess and Shredder. They are available on my web page and are already included in LucasChess from release 1.16. https:...

Re: Problem with arena 3.5.1

Hi there, maybe I should try to contact Martin Blume. But if I start to work again with Martin it seems that is a lot of work after so many years. Thinking on my old idea-list ... most are not inside and it seems that different bugs must be fixed. We are 15 years older as in our best times. No info...

Re: Certabo, Millennium Chess Link and Novag UCB drivers

I've updated the Certabo and Millennium versions. If you are using Shredder or the older LucasChess and want to start the game from a different position you can now skip the step of setting up the pieces in the normal starting position first. This doesn't affect use with Arena or LucasChessR, and do...

Re: Certabo, Millennium Chess Link and Novag UCB drivers

I found a problem in the processing of 'Auto' when searching for the board's COM port. I've uploaded a fixed version to my web page.

Thanks,

Certabo, Millennium Chess Link and Novag UCB drivers

A few years ago I wrote a UCI "engine" to control my Novag UCB board and then converted it to a DLL library that allowed it to interface directly with Arena and LucasChess. I have now updated it to work with the new LucasChessR and have also added support for the Shredder GUI. I saw Lars Nowak had U...

Re: Exist a posibility to play against MK V (1981 computerworldchampion) on PC?

Hi, you can use more than 250 old chess computer programs (also MK V) with CB-Emu_Pro from my website: https://fhub.jimdofree.com/ It also includes a special version 'MessChess' which allows to run all those programs in any chess GUI which supports the WB or UCI protocol (e.g. WinBoard, Arena, Hiar...

Re: Leela and NVIDIA clock throttling (and overheating)

If it's a really hot day and I'm running LC0 I sometimes throttle back the GPU using MSI Afterburner. I've only got a GTX970 but I still get worried when it's running flat out.

https://www.msi.com/page/afterburner

It displays loads of monitoring data too which you might find useful.

Re: Banksia GUI released

A couple of questions about analysing games. I've finished my game and have the Main board, Score Graph, Moves, Engine Info windows open. I can click on the moves in Moves to jump to a certain point in the game, but how can I: 1. Configure the colours of the Score Graph so that the score at the curr...
