Re: Scid vs. PC 4.14

Wow - you're right. The problem is progressbar updates are 10x slower on OS X due to buggy TCL . Searches are probably the same. To test, change the 5000 const in sc_tree_search to 1000,000 and recompile tkscid. I'll have to do something... just not sure what, laugh. Maybe remove the tree progressba...

Re: Windows 10 Experience

Mine, not so good. You keep your cool better than me :) I used their browser to try to install Open Office, since that is what I use for Word processing, etc. from home. It told me that Open Office was not compatible and threw me away from the page. OK, fine. I installed Firefox, and went back to t...

Re: Windows 10 Update Poll

It sounds like an improved GUI over Win8. But they are being typically [bad] about respecting people's simple rights. (It's a laugh to here other people losing it instead of myself :)) [About the win7 upgrade icon]The moment you push me into a corner, you corporate pieces of crap, I will fight back ...

Re: Windows 10 Update Poll

One big change is this - home users seem to be forced into automatic OS updates. Probably a very bad design decision imho.

Re: Scid vs. PC 4.14

OK. I don't know what version that is, but it's not 4.14. Probably worthwhile upgrading.

Re: Scid vs. PC 4.14

Thanks for your continued work on Scid vs PC. Here are two bits of feedback. 1) On linux I set a tournament to run 5 rounds, 15 seconds per game Ok - you have in fact set the time to be 0 seconds per game + 15 second increment, which it doesnt like. To play your time controls enter ".25 minutes 0 s...

Re: Another apparent bug

It's the space between the move number and move of crafty thats the problem Gaviota: Engine: 11 -16 478 2115678 3.Qa4+ Nc6 4.Bg2 Be6 5.d3 Qd7 6.Nxd5 Bxd5 7.Bxd5 Qxd5 8.Nf3 Bb4+ 9.Bd2 Bxd2+ 10.Kxd2 O-O Engine: 11 -8 604 2678639 3.Nf3 Nc6 4.d3 Bg4 5.Bg2 Bb4 6.Bd2 O-O 7.Nxe5 Bxc3 8.Nxg4 Bxb2 Engine: 11...

Re: Another apparent bug

Ok - there is an option in the Analysis Config widget for Max Ply. 0 is the default, and no limiting. But Crafty is a pain. It is preceding numbers in the PV, making doing a simple list-range command wrong. Engine: 5 58 0 2307 1. Nc3 Nf6 2. Nh3 Na6 3. Ng5 Do many/any other engines do this ?
