[Black "rodentIV_android (terminated)"]
You are playing the built-in engine, the executable for rodent terminated, as can be seen in the name.
Can you build PIE? Or otherwise static?

Hi Xray,

Wow you found the solution very quick thanks for your hard work.
Now my question:
-I use „Chess for Android“. When I activate the engine I can set the UCI options.
By personality file I see:

.txt

When I tip on „.txt“ I can write text in this field.

Can I chose a personality this way? - How?

This version worked for me. Question: Do I need to use the full path to personality file or just the file name .txt?

The code says

Code: Select all

    FILE *personalityFile = NULL;
    if (isabsolute(fileName)                    // if known locations don't exist we want to load only from absolute paths
        || ChDirEnv("RIIIPERSONALITIES")        // try `RIIIPERSONALITIES` env var first (26/08/17: linux only)
            || ChDir(_PERSONALITIESPATH))       // next built-in path
                personalityFile = fopen(fileName, "r");
As said before I discarded ChDirEnv("RIIIPERSONALITIES") so probably fileName is an absolute path to the personality file.

Hi xray

Pleae forgive me! my english AND tech. knowledge is not so good. :oops:
I don‘t understand:“ so probably fileName is an absolute path to the personality file.“
-How can I chose the personalty file?
-Can I define my own personality?

-what is minic?

Sorry for asking - dont want to waste your time. But would love to use/create personality files in Rodent IV.

Peter
