Hi phhnguyen! here you find the 2 .json files :

Banksiaplaying: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AkW3Hj0Gl_ew0Dbcjfo ... P?e=q80YLj

Banksiatour: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AkW3Hj0Gl_ew0DevQNT ... p?e=yq8brp
Thanks for the files!

I found the numbers of players are not consistent. The participant list is 41 players, but players from the games are 49. I guess that is the result of editing for a while, plus the bug of not updating the player list from the previous release of BSG.

I have been working to fix the issue.

I've found another bug that makes banksia crash, at least on my system:

If you have several of the new graphic options open (depth, nodes, elapsed time, etc) and you go to file > settings and uncheck them, the 1st one you uncheck will work ok, but the 2nd will make banksia crash. I can reproduce this indefinitely on my pc.
Can anyone else try the same?
Thanks for the bug report. It will be fixed for the next release.

This is a very interesting program.

But where are the help / readme files? I'm interested in the Extreme Analysis, amongst other things, but an explanation would really help.
Sorry, there is no help yet. I am quite lazy when writing is always a hard task! If someone can help, it is highly appreciated!

For Extreme Chess Analysis, you may read a bit from BSG's blogs, not much but may be OK for starting. You may post any questions here.

A man (named Benjie) has been using BanksiaGUI for his chess channel. I was so surprised since it looks quite different :D

I am currently also streaming on twitch using banksia. See my signature :P

Another thing I've noticed regarding the new graphics is that sometimes they don't show anything until the game is well underway. I haven't seen if it's a particular move or what, but sometimes only at move 50 or so the graphics start showing, and when they do, they show the complete graph from move 1. Don't know what's going on there.

Edit: you can take a look at this video where you can clearly see what I was referring to, the graph not showing for several moves and then suddenly appear: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1099137122

Is this a bug on Banksia, or is Stockfish really making illegal moves? (chess 960)

Code: Select all

Stockfish 14 > info depth 32 seldepth 40 multipv 1 score cp 0 nodes 43484819 nps 826252 hashfull 83 tbhits 0 time 52629 pv e8g8 d1e2 c8e6 e1g1 h7h6 f1d1 d8e7 a2a3 f8d8 b3a5 f6d7 d2e3 d7c5 b2b4 c5a4 e3d2 e6a2 b1a1 a2e6

I have found another bug: saved games into the tournament .json get truncated by some weird reason. 90% of the games in my .json are like this:

Code: Select all

 {
      "gameIdx" : 80,
      "gameMoves" : "b2b4 {+0.42/28 52776 42949352}  e7e5 {+0.25/21 90731 58201166}  c2c4 {+0.59/29 31169 25132663} ",
      "pairId" : 26500,
      "players" : 
      [
        "Fire 8.NN.1",
        "Stockfish 14"
      ],
      "reason" : "mate",
      "result" : "1-0",
      "round" : 1,
      "startFen" : "bnqbrkrn/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/BNQBRKRN w GEge - 0 1"
    },
The number of moves vary between 2 and around 7-10. There are a couple of exceptions where the game was saved complete, but I don't know the condition for this to happen, though I think it has to do with castling. Whenever a castling move happens, the game is truncated (which also might be related to the stockfish illegal move issue). This also has the side-effect of corrupting the statistics in the "tech" tab on the results.

Here's the full PGN of that match that I show above:

So nice videos!!! Thanks for sharing!

I have been considering creating a new page linking to all channels which use BSG :D

Thanks for the report. I have checked and that is a bug about the rounding numbers (between using integer/double numbers). The graph is still displayed fully and correctly even sometimes it uses less space than the X ax thus it looks like missing some bars (but actually not). The bug will be fixed for the next release.

I don't understand the challenges on liches properly. Can someone explain to me, for example, how I can only play 3m + 2s (or another level) with Banksia GUI? I manually set the timer to 180s + 2s under Banksia GUI. In addition, under "challenging" also only 180s + 2s. Nevertheless, I am currently playing a game with 2m + 7s! How can that be?

Here is a live copy of the game info on Lichess:

2+7 • Gewertet • Blitz
Partie läuf
t

(2 + 7 • Ranked • Blitz Game runs)

I don't want to play 2m + 7s.
