Re: Android chess program - Info needed.

You can use Droidfish. It's not possible to set up asynchronous time controls, but you won't lose if you time runs out (you time will go negative instead).

Re: What software to use to publish games on FB

You could use https://lichess.org to import games.

Then you can post a link to the game. You cannot replay/analyse it directly in Facebook but instantly in lichess. No registration is needed.

I don't know if that's good enough for you. I never saw a re-playable game in Facebook itself.

Nice! Thanks :)

How do you draw arrows starting from squares that are occupied with pieces? I mean, without actually moving the piece.

If I use the right mouse button, I pick up the piece and move it to the target square, even if I only want to draw the arrow.

asmFish/pendantFish is equal to Stockfish of the same date. The difference is the programming language. Stockfish is written in C++ and asmFish in assembler which results in clearly higher search speed.

You have to put the basic.ini inside the personalities folder. Maybe you want to copy the content of the basic_example.ini into your basic.ini

Re: Rodent news

Thank you. One question: although I set the correct paths to the binary in the Makefile, HIDE_OPTIONS (and maybe all other commands in "basic.ini") has/have no effect on the engine settings dialog. In Rodent 2, the effect of "HIDE_OPTIONS" was, that I can choose the personality file but in Rodent 3 ...
