First, it looks like each of the three command files for ICS logins all have the same case sensitivity problem when launched from a case sensitive file system.
Second, after fiddling with the case issues, I got XBoard to launch but couldn't get it properly connected to Symbolic. Specifically, after I got Symbolic matched to an ICC opponent (as Black), Symbolic got started but never got a usermove directive to start calculations.
What I did get to run was this, as a simple shell script:
Code: Select all
/Applications/XBoard.app/Contents/MacOS/XBoard \ -autoflag \ -fcp "./Symbolic -c X" \ -fd $HOME/Arena/Symbolic \ -hideThinkingFromHuman false \ -ics \ -icshost chessclub.com \ -icslogon $HOME/Arena/Symbolic/icclogon \ -sgf $HOME/Arena/Symbolic/icc.pgn \ -size Medium \ -thinking \ -xalarm \ -xanimate \ -xbuttons \ -xzab \ -xzadj \ -zippyGameEnd "multi seek 5 ; seek 15" \ -zippyMaxGames 2 \ -zp
1) Is there a better way?
2) Is timestamp/timeseal somehow involved?
3) Is there any recently updated Zippy documentation?
