Re: The Computer Chess Community

I can relate to many things in your posting. But you always need to remember: this is the internet. People get offended very easily and its anonymity makes it very easy to attack someone they don't even know. My advise would be: be the Teflon man. Don't take things too personally from people who sho...

Re: zurichess jura - preview release

I tested the Linux version in Xboard and ran it against a ~2000 Elo Engine. I don't know what the hardest skill level is (since the default value was surprisingly a "0") so I tested "10" and "0" which seems to be upper- and lower limit.

In both cases, zurichess destroyed the other engine (Bikjump).

Re: zurichess jura - preview release

Thank you for the engine :)

Is it possible, that the "skill level" setting has no effect on the playing strength of the engine?

Re: Question : How to use a java engine as an uci engine

You were right. That was the problem! It works now (with Carballo and Pulse). Thank you :) But still: the same problem with CuckooChess. I think it's a problem with the engine itself. Funny thing is, that CuckooChess works in text mode and in its own GUI. Only the UCI mode seems to cause serious pro...

Re: Question : How to use a java engine as an uci engine

I tried UCI2WB adapter too. But either the syntax is different (or some special parameters are needed) or UCI2WB is not ready to communicate with a JVM.

Re: Question : How to use a java engine as an uci engine

Anyone knows how to use CockooChess 1.12 in xboard under linux? I tried the following line "CuckooChess" -fcp "java -Xmx2048m -jar /home/andreas/Dokumente/Chess/Engines/CuckooChess/cuckoo112.jar uci" -fd "." -fUCI but it doesn't work. Loading the engine causes a JVM process to start, using all the C...

Re: WinBoard-AA beta release

I figured out, there might still be a small bug with the UCI2WB Adapter:

When you load any engine (that uses UCI2WB) from the quick load menu (last four used engines), you still cannot make any changes "persistent" in the setting because it says "saving failed: engine not from list".
