    Yes! That was it, thank you. I had a little trouble installing--at least on my XP system it didn't install as shown on the site, but I made a few script changes to adjust for my Verizon Pre Plus, and it proceeded just fine, and the game is working well. Thanks again.

    Chess engine now works for me. After about 3-4 moves, my Palm Pre seemed to "hang" and became unresponsive. After a minute or so, it was ok again. It may be consuming lots of memory/resources for some reason.

    This is new for me.

    It is possible to run parallel in the terminal app the "top" command.
    The chessengine and the wrapper have both the user-id 5004
    and the wrapper has the lower PID.

    cpu usage
    =========
    during move: wrapper ~20% , engine ~60%
    after move: wrapper ~1% , engine < 1%

    Sorry!

    At the moment there is no way to get the move-list.

    For the future, i think about the following:
    Paste: Use a FEN description from the clipboard to build up the board
    Copy: Copy move-list into clipboard

    Would be awesome to copy move list to clipboard!
    I like to analyze moves later on....it would be nice if I did not have to write it down as I played...especially as its difficult to do so while riding the subway!!!!

    @MudShark22: Don't forget the voting.

    Please be patient, the move-list will not be part of the next release.

    In the next release the following things are planned:
    - No thinking time for book moves
    - Show info for nodes / nodes per second
    - Analyse-Mode: Only half move for undo/redo
    - Fix for "invalid move" for kings move

    I downloaded Palm_webOS_SDK.1.4.5.465.dmg, and installed PDK (/opt/PalmPDK/bin/pdk-device-install install).

    Device: Palm Pixi
    Version: WebOS 1.4.1.1
    Package dropbear: (device has 0.49-r3)

    After first move Advanced Chess showing msg "Engine not ready, please restart!".
    When I click "Ok" Advanced Chess app hang and became unresponsive.

    How to make Advanced Chess work?

    If I have downloaded the opening book, is it possible to remove it (to free up space)? Is it a file that can be deleted?
  14. #34  
    @Apri1: The version 0.1.2 is only running with webos >= 1.4.5
    For webos < 1.4.5 the version 0.0.7 is necessary

    @mzach:

    The file book.bin in
    /media/internal/.app-storage/file_.media.cryptofs.apps.usr.palm.applications.com.vocshopgames.chess_0'
    can be deleted with e.g. Internalz (Show hidden=yes)

    Hey everyone. A little help, please. I have a Pixi with WebOS 1.4.5 and Advanced Chess 0.1.2. I still get that "engine not ready/ restart" error. How can I fix that?
    Regards,

    @greatscott9999

    I have no pixi to check Advanced Chess 0.1.2 and the emulator
    does not support hybrid apps.

    Please check if the following files are existing with bytecount unequal zero:
    /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.vocshopgames.chess/stockfish
    /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.vocshopgames.chess/polyglot
    If not please reinstall the software.

    After that please check with the top/ps command if the two tasks (stockfish/polyglot) are running.

    So, the files you listed are present and accounted for. Please give advice about how / where to use the tp/ps command.
    Any new insight on Pixis and Advanced Chess. I sure would love to play.

    Please start advanced chess and type in the terminal window: ps -uax

    The result should be simillar to:

    5004 2790 16.9 1.2 18036 2976 ? s<1 9:18 0:07 /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.vocshopgames/polyglot
    5004 2790 114.0 2.0 91808 4960 ? s<1 9:18 0:07 /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.vocshopgames/stockfish

    This is a great app. My daughter loves it.

    It would be great if we can resize it to full screen, instead of just use a phone screen size window on a tablet.

    Is this application still be actively developed?

    Sorry for the small resolution in the emulator screen, but this is caused by HP.
    A real Touchpad version will be findished in the next 3 months.
