Re: SjaakII 1.3.1

For jokes I tried compiling an old C++ homework assignment. It was quite a bit larger, by 3 megabytes, but at least not 11mb larger :-)

Re: SjaakII 1.3.1

You can statically link those. I don't remember it being that massive, I'm going to have to check

[EDIT] Woah I guess it is 11megs. Odd I don't remember my binaries being that large.

Re: SjaakII 1.3.1

Re: Linux Chess GUI that's good for engine matches/tournamen

Sorry 12 images on top of each other (I forgot black and white...)

Xboard as of now has a possible 138 pieces for a single set. Thank god Harm decided not do to it that way! If only for his own sanity. :roll:

Re: Linux Chess GUI that's good for engine matches/tournamen

single file has the advantage of ease of distribution/configuration. you just have to point the gui at a single file. i assume most graphics editors would allow you to use a layer per piece and assign custom ids to the layers, but if not you could always use text editing to combine seperate files l...

Re: Linux Chess GUI that's good for engine matches/tournamen

I did not even know that it was possible to have multiple independent images in a single SVG file.

Re: Linux Chess GUI that's good for engine matches/tournamen

That "Java" interface you may be referring is the old X Athena widget set, and yes, it looks like something that came out of 1991 when Linus wrote linux (because it did...). XBoard still supports it, as a last resort measure, but thank god Harm had it moved on to the newer GTK+ which is now default ...

Re: Winboard for windows?

Well for years the only way to run XBoard on OSX was through a X11 server on OSX. So the name still applied. Although once we moved to GTK+ it became possible to run it directly through Quartz. I suppose I could have called the gtk+/quartz app MacBoard....But it's the same exact codebase where as wi...
