Re: Banksia GUI released

I have also been working with "bestmove 0000" which Minic prints out when being stopped because of wrong ponder move. Theory, BSG should work well with that move (accepts and then tells Minic to start computing as usual). Just being struggling to reproduce. I'll just quote this part, because the Mi...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Well, I have found another engine that behaves like Minic (that is, sending info strings after the stop command and before the "bestmove"), so I would advice to make Banksia adjust to that and fix this (regardless of what the protocol says), because I've so far found only 2 engines (Minic and Vajole...

Do you have plans for FRC support in Booot ?

Well, I just wanted to test without the info string to see if that fixed the problem. If it indeed was fixed, then we know for sure that THAT was the problem, and then we can discuss if it was banksia's fault or minic's and how to move forward. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Re: Banksia GUI released

Do you think Banksia does not like "free style" info string ? I think that Banksia expects a bestmove string right after the stop command (does the UCI protocol say anything about that?), and as it's receiving an info string instead, things break. Well, I just went and looked: * stop stop calculati...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Thanks for the analysis, i'll fix that. Well, your fix seems to have worked fine. Minic is not losing on time anymore because of the castling string. However, it is still losing on time (not quite often though), due to some other reason. A couple of logs below: 321.09:09:40 Minic 3.10> bestmove d2b...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Well, remember I'm testing FRC. Maybe Minic works ok in normal chess, but has problems with FRC notation, and/maybe cutechess or other GUIs can parse the O-O-O notation even if it's not compliant.

Re: Banksia GUI released

Banksia correctly ignores the response. Stop is sent to the pondering engine when the pondering move is wrong... The engine responds with a "best"move only to comply with the protocol. And then banksia MUST send another go request to the engine with the start position and the moves, and a go comman...

Re: Minic version 3

I'm glad to release today Minic 3.09 with some bug fixes and a new embedded net named "nidicolous nighthawk". https://github.com/tryingsomestuff/Minic/releases/tag/3.09 This net plays quite good FRC chess and is a little stronger than negligible nystagmus at standard chess. As always, binaries are ...
