Re: Problem to run XBoard with Mac command line

It should have been working back in the 4.8.0 app when I helped Harm do the osx integration code. I'm sad it hasn't after all this time as I was quite proud of the result. :( If you can find the error why bonanza doesn't run, let me know. I'm a little surprised it doesn't. What OS do you have? Maybe...

Re: Problem to run XBoard with Mac command line

Since the fixes are all in the bundling and not in executable itself, I released a new XBoard and XBoardSg 4.9.1a. (Also updated the internal polyglot and UCI2WB as per tradition :D)

Re: Problem to run XBoard with Mac command line

Yay! I think I got it! So far I just have to move /opt/local/share/mime/mime.cache to XBoard.app/Contents/Resources/share/mime and add export XDG_DATA_DIRS="$bundle_data" To the XBoard launcher script. Once I get these to the code, I'll try to make a 4.9.1a Only my dev laptop is out of commission, w...

Re: Problem to run XBoard with Mac command line

If anyone knowledgeable in the intricacies of GTK has any light to shed on this, it would be greatly appreciated. I am very much stumbling in the dark.

Re: MinGW AlphaBlend

Well the whole point of winboard as a project is that it uses a native windows toolkit. We already have third party tool kits in XBoard, which it is theoretically possible to compile for windows.

Re: Problem to run XBoard with Mac command line

So after much trial and error I narrowed the pixbuff mystery down. It started working on the hackentosh because I had installed macbports and gtk2 as part of some port. And why I couldn't figure it out before. It wasn't exactly a problem with the pixbuff system in the app bundle. It looks like I nee...

Re: ChessBot GUI for Windows

There was a guy named, matematiko, who led the winboard autochess group. He created a really neat app that interfaced with the old Yahoo chess server and simulated an ICS type server for winboard to connect too. All in the name of playing computer chess against each other using Yahoo as a medium. Su...
