Re: XBoard/WinBoard any bugs?

Today I've stumbled upon a PGN file I cannot open with Windboard 4.7.0 and 4.7.1, it complains with "Illegal move: 29... pv". I cannot see anything wrong with this PGN. [Event "nTCEC - Stage 1 - Season 2"] [Site "http://www.tcec-chess.net"] [Date "2013.08.28"] [Round "1.10"] [White "Octochess 5178"]...

Re: Octochess r5178 released

Thanks Julien. I've committed two changes to the repository to fix the compile errors in util/unix.cpp and to catch the locale exception.

I would be glad if you could checkout https://svn.filezilla-project.org/svn/chess/ and check whether it compiles on your machine.

Modern Times wrote:If anyone plays chess960 with this under ChessGUI, it needs the "960_OO" setting rather than the more usual "960_HAha" setting for UCI engines. That means it probably won't work under Shredder GUI, but probably will under Arena.
What's the difference?

Re: Octochess r5178 released

Bug in the compiler :(

Which GCC version do you use? Update to 4.8.1 if it is any older.

Re: Octochess r5178 released

OS X is weird :( For the first error, #include <sys/sysctl.h> and replace the entire function body with this: int get_system_memory() { uint64_t v;size_t l=8;sysctlbyname("hw.memsize",&v,&l,0,0);return v / 1024 / 1024; } For the second error, replace MAP_ANONYMOUS with MAP_ANON...

Re: Octochess r5178 released

If Amazon wouldn't sneak updates onto my Kindle and thus breaking the jailbreak without my consent, I could have had the public release out a few days earlier :(

I am confused, should I use this for TCEC instead?
That's not necessary. There are no functional differences between the version you have and r5178. The changes between are merely to make it easier to build the Kindle version of Octochess.
