New version of Scid Pocket

Post by pgeorges » Tue Jan 22, 2008 5:51 pm

Hi,

I released Scid Pocket 0.39 at http://prolinux.free.fr/scid/PPC.html

More engines have been ported (Scorpio and Greko for example), playing on freechess.org (FICS) and Novag Citrine board are now supported.

I managed to play games with the Citrine on FICS, but as this board is not the most reliable, I would not play rated / fast games with it :?

What should we look for in future version of the Windows SCID?

Quick question. Can the graphic board be saved to the clipboard as a .jpg?

Hello,

Winboard has the ability to configure the connection port to FICS.
Normal port is 5000
If there are problems with firewall the alternative port is 23

This feature could be interesant in pocket scid, athought not sure if possible.

To connect on port 23 is feasible, but I wonder in what situation this should be of any use : if people are behind a firewall, there should be a reason for it ?

As a temporary work around you can look for the line
set port 5000
and change it to
set port 23
in file core.tcl
