Looks good Fergus.

I just sent a public invitation and received the email from the google group.

Thanks Jose

PS. Did you get the invitation for the game I setup? I didn't get the invitation for the game you had sent, but my membership to the group had not been accepted yet.

Hi Fergus,

Did you get to create the new email group at GoogleGroups?

xxxxxxxxxx@googlegroups.com

The cvgameroom@yahoogroups.com no longer works, as Yahoo decommissioned that service on December 15th.

Cheers.

Jose


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-17 UTC

Yes Fergus.

The email group address would look like this:

xxxxxxxxxx@googlegroups.com


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-16 UTC

Fergus,

Yes it works too as the Yahoo Mailing lists.

I just created a test list with two of my email addresses, and sent a test message to my new list.

Got the test email on both of my email inboxes.

Fergus,

Google Groups is an alternative.

Fergus,

The problems with the "won" command are back.

This game is again showing the wrong winner:

https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game=Latrunculi+XXI&log=j_carrillo_vii-cvgameroom-2020-281-060

Can you delete 18. resign move from the database?

I think this is causing a problem after a won command.

Thanks Fergus!

Fergus,

I must be going crazy... :-(

Now this game:

https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game=Petteia+-+Dmytro+Variation&log=j_carrillo_vii-halfer-2020-283-953

(the game whose moves I couldn't see before) is showing that my opponent won the game. This game is another one where I ended the game with the "won" command.

I issued the "won" command as white, but the log shows that my opponent (black) won.

There seems to be something weird with the "won" command.

Below the page source section with the problem:


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-12 UTC

Apologies Fergus, gave you the wrong link.

The correct game was this one:

https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game=Petteia+-+Dmytro+Variation&log=j_carrillo_vii-halfer-2020-283-953

But I just checked again and now the log is there. It was weird. last time I checked there were only two lines in the log, White to play and Jose Carrillo won the game.

And I saw it as well in the page source.

Seems to be fine now. Thanks.

And thanks for correcting the winner in the other comment I submited.

Cheers!

Fergus,

Also, something went wrong with this game, which also just ended with the "won" command:

https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game=Petteia+-+Dmytro+Variation&log=j_carrillo_vii-halfer-2020-285-568

I'm trying to view the moves to replay the game, and now I can't see any of the moves.

It just show the starting board without any of the moves played.

Thanks in advance.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-12 UTC

Thanks Fergus.

Now that the "won" command is working (and because by opponent had resigned to the game, while the won command didn't work) there was a strange behavior that affected the result for this game:

https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game=Latrunculi+XXI&log=j_carrillo_vii-cvgameroom-2020-281-060

Now it shows that my opponent (who resigned) won the game.

Can you please correct the result for this game? Thanks again.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-11 UTC

Fergus,

I'm not sure I understood your response.

Does the won command don't work anymore when entered as a move?

How are we supposed to claim a win when we checkmate in a preset that does not enforce the rules?

It would make more sense for the "won" command to work as a move than the "lost" command. For losing a game we have the alternative to "resign" command, but what is the alternative when we win by checkmate and we should claim a win immediately, rather than ask the opponent to resign a checkmated position?

Hi Fergus,

I have now a problem with the "won" command.

I just use the "won" command in this game:

https://www.chessvariants.com/play/pbm/play.php?game=Latrunculi+XXI&log=j_carrillo_vii-cvgameroom-2020-281-060

but the game continued.

I asked my opponent to resign, while I sort out what is happening to the "won" command.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-10 UTC

Thanks Fergus.

This worked for me.

setsystem originalpieces currentpieces;


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-10 UTC

I just added those same lines to my code, and the result was the same, "empty" captured.

http://play.chessvariants.com/pbm/play.php?game%3DPetteia+V2%26settings%3DSet8q

Doesn't seem to work. I end up with 4 captured pieces.

alias S CI s ci D ~C d ~c;
empty a4;
empty a5;
capture e1;
empty a1;
echo $lastcaptured;



Do I have to need to add an include file for "empty" to work the way it used to?


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-10-10 UTC

Fergus,

The empty command doesn't seem to be working as it should,

I'm trying to create a new preset, and when using the empty command in the pre-game, the pieces end up captured.

Then I checked one of my old presets (below), which used to work, and realized that the empty command has the same incorrect behavior:

Fergus,

Got the WujiChess.zrf !!!

Yu Ren Dong emailed it to me.

I'll email it to you.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2020-09-24 UTC

Fergus,

No I don't have it anymore. I searched my backups but can't find it.

I sent Yu Ren Dong an email asking him if the ZRF is still available.

Fergus

My opponent ran out of time in this game: 

http://play.chessvariants.com/pbm/play.php?game=Modern+Random+Chess&log=j_carrillo_vii-cvgameroom-2018-172-521

However the game is still showing active in the Game Courier Game Logs page.

Can you fix the status of this game as the game is completed?

Is there something I need to do to the preset to prevent thiscondition from happening? 

Thanks.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2018-07-14 UTC

Fergus,

Can you please restore the backup?

Thanks.

Is there a problem with the database, or was the game deleted?


Chaturanga. The first known variant of chess. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]
Jose Carrillo wrote on 2018-06-22 UTCExcellent ★★★★★

My rating is specific to the Davidson Variation of Chaturanga.

If Davidson was correct (about Kings being able to move into check and to be captured), this would make an interesting alternative evolution story from Chaturanga to Shatranj, which makes a nicer transition story from Chaturanga to Shatranj to Chess.
