Re: test position for any new program rated above 3300elo

First of all: there is no program over 3300 Elo !! Elo 2200 are more than sufficient to find a move like 1.Be5 in this position. Here the solution of Deep Shreeder 12 Linux on Quad Q6600/2.4 GHz: Elo is not an absolute, so I could have a list with programs rated 5000 Elo if my baseline was 3000. BT...

Scid 4.2.2 Linux and UCI engines

Hi
Are you aware that the Windows UCI engines (i.e. Rybka) do not run under Scid 4.2.2 Linux if you have installed the latest version of wine? A Linux friend had found this out by accident.
Kind regards

Re: "Too many round names" error in SCID

When trying to import all CCRL 40/4 games I get the error from the subject line. When trying to import the whole file SCID just crashes here. By trying file by file it appears when importing one file to the clipbase and then copying the clipbase to the database with the other games. Does that happe...

Re: RE chessbase light

http://freechess.50webs.com/chessbaselight.html It's a great program! It looks a lot better than SCID, in particular the notation pane, and looks are a major part of an interface that, after all, you look at! The free SCID is much better than the free ChessBaseLight as with this program you can't -...

Re: RE chessbase light

Scid plus Houdini and Stockfish is good enough. You are right, SCID is a great program. I am running SCID 4.2.2 under Linux Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and are using the following engines for analyses purposes - Deep Shredder 12 Linux - Fruit 051103 Linux - Spike 1.2 Linux - Stockfish 1.9.1 Linux - Toga II 1....

Re: RE chessbase light

Was not that the case tho Kurt? Perhaps I do not recall accurately, however I thought that the old CB light allowed something like 98 % percent of the features however it was limited to a small database. It is somewhat difficult to assess a program and then not be able to test the features. Perhaps...
