Re: The Unofficial World Championship Of Computer Programs In International Draughts 2018

Hi Krzysztof, Great tournament, but i think that for Scan 3.0, itsn't the best move of opening that's activated. Also book-margin it's to much. 4 it's better. This is why it does so many draws. Sidiki Strange things you write. See here http://www.uwccpi.draughtsprograms.eu/settings.html how the Sca...

Android devices run Dalvik bytecode, in the early days on the Dalvik Virtual Machine or, from Android 5.0 (Lollipop) forward, on ART (Android RunTime). Although class files and, by extension, jar files can be translated to Dalvik bytecode, it is a misconception to think that any Java GUI that runs ...

Re: Computer Draughts programs on Android

Ideally, however, you just need a checkers GUI running on Android that supports importing third party engine binaries. Sidiki already knows how to use my Java GUI "Hub" on Windows. I am guessing that Android is Java-friendly, so hopefully all we need is the path to the Scan directory. Hi all, It's ...

Re: Computer Draughts programs on Android

but can you tell me please how to run them on Android. Note that these scan binaries run directly on ARM-based Android devices. In its raw form, you need to get to a command line on your device.

Re: Computer Draughts programs on Android

Scan it's open source. If you can do it for us, qui you will help us too much. I compiled scan without issues for Android and it runs. However, I need a couple of files to make sure that it works. (in particular scan.ini, data/eval, data/book, probably data/bb too). $ ./scan Scan 2.0 by Fabien Leto...
