ChessGUI 0.230 and TLCV

Post by Matthias Gemuh » Sun Aug 21, 2011 6:58 pm

ChessGUI 0.230 and TLCV

- In TLCV mode, ChessGUI creates a file TLCV_File.txt in OUTPUT folder.
- Give TLCV_File.txt as a Winboard/Arena debug file to TLC Server.

If the broadcast works, let me know.

A bugfix in TLCV support

I recommend setting the server folder in the viewer, and connecting in local mode first for testing.

Matthias - later versions of ChessGUI seem to have a bug that causes some tournaments to crash before it's finished.
The schedule file loses everything.
I get around it by looking in the pgn file to see the last game played first. Then I delete the schedule and temporary table, so that when I go back in to resume the tournament it starts from the beginning. Then I exit again and delete all the games from the schedule file that had already been played before going back in and resuming from where the tournament had got up to before crashing. Means that I can no longer see the correct points table displayed though.

Test without GUI book. Handling the book in TLCV mode is still tricky.

Darn - I always use a GUI book. Still worth giving a go anyway?

I'll look at it. RoundRobin, right ?

Sorry to bother you again Matthias (and sorry for being a bit thick), but what are the steps I take to broadcast a ChessGUI tournament in TLCV? In easy language please. :)
I'd like to try a trial now if possible.
