Hi,

You might want to try the armv7 build I made the other day, it's working fine for me on Android 7.

Hi Lealgo,

I thank you VERY much for your heplp :D :D :D
But in the android compilation of Rodent III - we can see the „ini files“ and the „txt) files. For this reason you can use/create your own personalities in android.

Is it possible to compile it in this way???

Hi Peter,

I'm afraid I cannot help you with that, as I didn't test the personalities feature. You could try and copy the personalities folder along with the engine, but note that Android chess GUIs behave differently when loading the engine. I know for instance that DroidFish changes the current directory to DroidFish/uci/logs, so you could try copying the personalities folder there.

Another option is to wait for someone to package the last Rodent. The following package includes Rodent III with personalities support:

Good luck.

Leandro

Hi Leando,

I am using „Chess for Android“. I will try to copy the engine file + the personality files in ONE file - and try if it works - right?

Thanks for your friendly help and your ideas! :D

Peter
