Kingsrow - Truus - Flits

Post by Krzysztof Grzelak » Tue Mar 30, 2021 15:06

I tested the following two applications flits_dxp_server and truus_dxp_server. My task was simple. Play the match progamu Kingsrow (latest version) use 2-move ballots and 3-move ballots with programs Truus and Flits. Maybe I'll start with the Flits program - there was no problem playing the match with 2-move ballots and 3-move ballots. Then I started playing a match with Truus. At first I used 2-move ballots - there was no problem - I played a match. It is the turn of the 3-move ballots. Unfortunately, he did not play a single match. Somewhere there is an error just do not know where. Whether in Kingsrow or in the app truus_dxp_server.

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 position that is received with the GAMEREQ message must be white-to-move.

Well, then the truus_dxp_server application has an error.
