We plan to support/study some hardware. Some of them are expensive. Thus we need some help from you all. You may donate us some hardware (such as electronic chessboards). Used or new is fine. Or even lend us for a while (for a few months). You may donate or advertise on our app too. For any donation above US$50, we will display your name/information/advertisement in the About dialog box of BSG as a golden sponsor for one year (for being Diamond sponsors with unlimited time, please discuss with us). All help is highly appreciated!

To use Banksia GUI with some languages, users can download language packages (extension .qm) and copy them into folder languages (it is located in the same folder with the runnable file of Banksia GUI. For macOS, it is in package, right-click on that to popup menu and select Show Package Contents)

if you want to add multiple arrows just look at how lichess did it.they change the thickness of the arrow depending on the eval for that move.check out lichess analysis board.i always keep on 5 arrows in the lichess analysis and it looks very clean..

Lichess bot feature still does not work even in version 0.39. I also increased concurrency to higher values, but still without success. I still need to use older version 0.29. The version 0.29 is the last version, where Lichess bot feature works.

Thanks a lot for the report. Do you mean the feature Challenge? It is strange since it works on my computer. BTW, I have been creating a new tutor video about creating/playing Lichess bots with BSG (publish within a few days). You may verify step by step.

An older version of the Tarrasch Toy engine is included with the standard Tarrasch packages. The newerversion is slightly stronger, but since it uses time better it is less fun to play. Reptor is anolder Triple Happy chess program. Reptor is a repertoire memorization training tool. Reptor is nolonger under development, but may some keen users still find it useful.

Note that Web Browsers are increasingly paranoid about security and can be reluctant to let you downloadand run a program like Tarrasch.exe which is not developed by a big corporation. I am sorry, there'snothing I can do about this except reassure you that Tarrasch is a trustworthy program. (Update, November 2016:Actually I have come to realise there is one thing I could do which is to get the Tarrasch distribution properly signed. I will endeavourto find out what is required to do this soon).

Tarrasch is an extremely easy to use free chess program for Windows. Tarrasch comes with a free database and chess engines, (including Stockfish and the demo versions of Houdini and Komodo), so you get everything you need to enjoy computerchess with one simple download. Click here to download Tarrasch for Windows.

Tarrasch Version 3 is a capable and full featured chess program. If you've only seen old versions of Tarrasch (2016 and earlier),you'll love Tarrasch's slick database facilities, tabbed workspace, sharper/resizable/colourful graphics, improved largefile support, much faster editing.

ChessBase Reader 2017. The new ChessBase Reader conveniently displays all installed databases and training titles - with a modern menu ribbon look. With the free ChessBase reader, you can open all standard file formats (.cbh, .cbf, .pgn), play through games on a stunningly rendered board, watch ChessBase training videos and much more. Download it for free now! Free download available here.

The graphical user interface currently only supports very basic features. Mostof the work is currently done in cutechess-cli andlibcutechess projects. We plan to focus on the GUI after the libraryhas stabilised.

Documentation forGNU Chessis available online, asis documentation for most GNU software. You mayalso find more information aboutGNU Chessby runninginfo chessorman chess,or by looking at/usr/share/doc/chess/,/usr/local/doc/chess/,or similar directories on your system. A brief summary is available byrunning gnuchess --help.

Arena is a complete GUI for chess engines. The program already comes with an engine that enables you to play against the computer, but it also supports almost all popular engines. The program is vastly customizable and easy to use, so you create exactly the kind of game you want. Thanks to the adjustable strength, you can select the difficulty level and increase it as you get more acquainted with game and more skillful.

What is great is that the program provides detailed information about moves and thinking process of the computer. This can help you learn from the engine to defeat your enemies faster. You can even play online with other people or create tournaments between two engines to learn from them too. Other useful features of the program include printing capabilities, support of the DGT Chessboard, EPD and PGN support, user interface available in multiple languages, to name but a few. In short, Arena is a wonderful program that includes everything chess players need to become professional players.

BearChess is an independent chess GUI for UCI engines with direct support for electronic chessboards (Certabo, TabuTronic Cerno/Sentio, Millennium ChessLink and eOne, DGT (e-Board and Pegasus), Chessnut Air/Pro, Square Off Pro, NOVAG Citrine/UCB, Saitek OSA).

Many GUIs support electronic chessboards, but do not use the full potential that chessboards with piece recognition offer. They could be much better used for training or analysis of games and positions.

You can download specifications explaining how in Shredder the chess user-interface communicates with the chess engine. UCI stands for Universal Chess Interface. This download is already included in the Shredder chess download.Start Download

Shane's Chess Information Database is a powerful Chess Toolkit, withwhich one can create huge databases, run chess engines, and playcasual games against the computer or online with the Free Internet ChessServer. It was originally written by Shane Hudson , and has received strongcontribution from Pascal Georges and others.

  • New EPD search and analyze features.

  • Tri-coloured Tree bar-graphs, and options for more or less statistics.

  • Ratings Graph can show multiple players, and Score graph is an attractive bar graph.

Extra chess pieces (such as Berlin) are now enabled by default for Wish 8.6, but 8.5 requires installing TkImg. Sound support requires Snack.If your distro does not provide these packages ("tkimg", "tcl-snack"), you can install from source using these links (both of which have fixes applied).TkImg,Snack.

The configuration files, including the chess engine list, are storedin the Scid-vs-PC\bin\config directory, and may be copied over fromold versions to make upgrading easier. If the app is installed in "Program Files" On Windows 7, the config files are mirrored inC:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Scid vs PC

The monkey on my back has really been having a good time. This release includes changes to the Gameinfo, Comment Editor, and Board Style widgets, some new chess pieces, colour schemes and tiles. Thanks to Michal and Alex for feedback.

  • Openseal is an open source version of FICS Timeseal. It needs some rewriting to work with Scid, though it is a small program.

  • FICS could be adapted to work with the ICC. The work involves analysing the differences in the strings used by the two programs. (for example, for FICS we have this line to ackowledge successful log-in if string match "*Starting FICS session*" $line] { The two servers do have many similarities i think, and examining xboard's "backend.c" (or some other client) for "FICS" particularities

  • Translation updates

  • The TCL sound package, Snack, needs a maintainer.

  • There are two engine types - UCI and XBoard. Pascal's UCI code is in some ways inferior to Shane's Xboard code. Though this is mostly mitigated by the speed of modern processors, it'd be nice to make use of the UCI ponder feature in analysis mode (Comp mode already does so).

  • Verify/update the Novag Citrine drivers and interface, and Correspondence / XFCC feature. Our Windows port needs a little overhaul to properly use Users home directory to store all the various data. I will get around to doing it one day though.

  • A lot of people use chessbase books (.ctg). Scid can only readpolyglot opening books, but inlining Scidb's support for ctgmay not be too hard.
