Flits with Hub interface

Klaas Bor has created a Hub interface version of Flits. It is part of the Turbo Dambase program installation. I have created a short help file that explains how to use it in an engine match run with Tmgr. The help file is part of the Tmgr download. You can also access it directly with this link: htt...

Nice result Bert!

So I understand that I can play a match Flits - Truus. How to play such a match using flits_dxp_server and truus_dxp_server. A match consisting of 158 games.
All in the help file, of course. I'm done...

No! It can play any white-to-move start position.

Re: Flits Dxp Server

Bert and I were unable to learn what locations in the process space could be controlled to change the side to move after setting up an arbitrary position.
And, BTW, you will find this fact in the help file also. You should read it some time.

Re: Flits Dxp Server

Have you ever thought about such a question - why truus_dxp_server can't play 3-move ballots, that no one on the forum asked it. Of course I am well aware of it. Do you think the white-only start positions is because I am lazy, or did not think it was important enough to allow black start positions...

Re: Flits Dxp Server

Well, the whole application is badly written. Is it possible for Ed to ask you to write the apps neatly again. Without any mistakes.To work in programs truus_dxp_server and flits_dxp_server - 2-move ballots, 3-move ballots and to play normal games. Sorry, but you really do not have the faintest ide...

Re: Flits Dxp Server

1. Is there a possibility of playing 3-move ballots with Truus Dxp server (program Truus) Not the 3-move ballots that we normally play, because they are black-to-move positions. Truus DXP server can only handle white start positions. You could of course use the colors-reversed mirror positions. 2. ...

Re: Kingsrow - Truus - Flits

The answer is in the Truus help file. From the help file: You can send it an arbitrary start position, but it must be a white-to-move position. I don't know how to change truus' notion of side-to-move except by making moves. You can have truus play either the black or white side, but the start posit...

Re: Kingsrow - databases

Can you write exactly how much all items in the database are 4x4. You can see the sizes of the files using Windows Explorer. The filenames have the total number of pieces and the number of pieces of each type. For example db8-4103 has 8 pieces, 4 black men, 1 black king, 0 white men, and 3 white ki...

Re: Draughts program

I did not understand you a bit and I do not know if I understand you well. Time 5 min + 3 seconds . Set the Initial time to 60 seconds. Set the Increment to 10 seconds. Did I understand correctly Ed. Tell them that you cannot use 3 seconds as an increment, because it takes you longer than 3 seconds...

Re: Draughts program

This is what Ed is all about. How to set times for these two games - 15 min + 10 seconds and 5 min + 3 seconds. Tell them you cannot use 5 min + 3 seconds because the increment is too small, it takes you longer than 3 seconds to make the moves in the program. Tell them they can make it 1 minute + 1...

You got me very wrong. How do I make Kingsrow in time for a game 15 minutes + 10 seconds increment without a moves limit.
Go to the Game Time dialog. Select "increment mode". Set the Initial time to 900 seconds. Set the Increment to 10 seconds.

Re: Draughts program

Krzysztof, you also mentioned that this is for an exhibition match against a human player. Perhaps you misunderstood what they proposed. It might instead have been -- you play a bunch of games at 15 min + 10 seconds, and if the match is tied after those games, then you play a second round of games a...
