Re: Shorties

You can post your shortest games here. Would be even more fun if they are less than ten moves. I have posted this game before, but this remains one of my favorite victories against my first chess computer. And it satisfies your ten move constraint :-) [Date "sometimes in 1981"] [White "a much young...

Repurposed Chess Engine Package

Since engine distribution on Android has matured, I repurposed my original "Chess Engine Package" into an application that just packages various binaries (armv7, arm64, x86, x86_64) of the UCI chess engine BikJump v2.5 in Android ChessBase compatible format. This mean that the chess engine can be di...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

Well the one in my android phone kept crashing in tournament mode..5x or so....had to remove it...the one in my tablet works (I think) seemed buggy. I was asking about your previous report that you did not like the icon size :D But, I have not seen any issues with running tournaments. Is this with ...

Not sure this engine was used for DGT Centaur (and if so, adaptative feature would lack anyway).
On another forum it was confirmed that this is not the engine used in the Centaur.

I can not install/run this engine (using Android 5.1) - does it run on your device?
Peter, just in case, note that these files are 7z compressed, so make sure to uncompress them first. Having said that, I don't think any of these binaries is in PIE format.

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

New icon is the wrong size and says "Chess" not "chess for android" The grey one has been on my devices a long time...8-10 years? As a matter of fact I believe 'chess for android" was probably the first app ever downloaded on my smartphones. Ten years! I appreciate your loyalty and hope you stay wi...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

Still, maybe its usability could be improved if one could access such Options again without having to go back and select "Clear Options". One idea is to remove the "Clear Options" item and replace it with a new "Change Options" that would apply to the current engine only. And for keeping the Clear ...
