Post by Michael Diosi » Fri Dec 24, 2010 10:10 pm

Hi all,


Arena 3.0 is now available for download from the Arena webpage.
These are the novelities/improvements:
  • UCIFilter fixed+improved
    Removing engines from memory after aborting tournament mode works now
    It is now possible to make an engine weaker in ICS mode
    Mainlines can be saved as variations in PGN (optional)

    Wine font bug fixed: If fonts Arial or Courier New not available, choose appropriate one, not random one
    Wine helpfile reader added as separate download
    Wine does not show Chess Merida Arena's mask. Mask disabled on wine, so graphics is not spoilled
    If no font "Wingdings" available (common on Wine), show simple '+','=' and '-' characters, not wrong ones
    Inactive buttons in tournament mode visible, not invisible, but inactive as they should
    Auto-Analysis: Comprehensive output in report starts with 1
    Auto-Analysis: Bug removed where positions were not analyzed
    Auto-Analysis: New option for adding parameter info in report file
    In PGN output duplicate game result in braces removed, e.g.: {1-0 Arena adjudication} 1-0
    Superflous "..." after last move in PGN removed
    Winboard options "memory", "cores" and "egtpath" now globally setable
    Bug in combo boxes in Winboard options removed
    Option "Large Logos" works again

We wish you all a Merry Christmas !

'Minimize to tray' feature during an Automatic analysis of the EPD files set is broken! :evil:
Every time when I restore Arena window from a tray I always get a new initial position analysed by engine instead of analysing the next one in the list.
I think you understand what I described here :roll:

Good Luck and Merry Christmas!

PS Shredder Classic is still unexpendable GUI to analyse EPD files...

Hi,

Sure... if you noticed this before and you would have sent it to US it might have been fixed already. And still you didn't, don't and will not pay for Arena.

Now let's see if we would charge as much as Shredder does...
