Re: Banksia GUI released

Not sure if this is a bug, but I am looking into it. Running Version 26 on two systems and when I now try to play a local network game the GUI has been crashing on the remote system. UPDATE: At 1st I thought this might be a Firewall issue, so I uninstalled my ESET anti-virus and firewall software a...

Re: Banksia GUI released

I used the recent Winter v0.8 release as an opportunity to test a couple GUIs, including Banksia. I am for the most part quite happy and feel this will likely be one of my main chess applications (together with Cutechess, XBoard and Scid) moving forward. That being said, two points: When I ran a to...

Re: Banksia GUI released

It seems that Banksia does not recognize Winboard engines as being capable of playing chess960. Thanks a lot for the feedback. You are right. Actually even I have coded BSG to understand WB engine's chess variants, I did not test them with that chess variant since I was struggling to find them (Win...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Bug Report: I've been noticing that time is out of sync by about 5 to 8 seconds when using LiChess Bot. The GUI believes that there is more time than is actually available. This happens at least when I do test games vs LiChess Stockfish Bot. Does not seem to happen vs other bots. Wanted to report i...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Thank you very much. The GUI works fine. One only question: Is there no mode where the chess program analyses the current board position without making a move. This option is the one I use most of the time when using a chess GUI and studying games. - Let engine play for one side (menu -> File -> Ga...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Please please no a new holy war CECP vs UCI here. The question is whether Banksia should go for a good user experience and encapsulate the CECP oddities, or let them spill out to the user. HGM favours shifting over everything to the user which I consider bad UI design while I think the GUI should d...

Re: Banksia GUI released

And that most engines do not implement Move Now should just be common knowledge; the CECP specs define it as an optional command. That's part of the mess and why the CECP ecosystem just sucks. Dear HGM and Ras, Please please no a new holy war CECP vs UCI here. This topic should be about/supporting ...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Just started using the lichess bots feature. Unfortunately, 2 out of 3 games have apparently disconnected right out of the opening. The board would show 1-0 for my opponent, but if I checked via a web browser, the game was still going on, with my engine's clock running until it lost on time. It see...
