Fergus

My opponent ran out of time in this game: 

/play/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.

Fergus,

Can you please restore the backup?

Thanks.

I'm getting this error message when I'm trying to play in my game below:

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

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.

Chaturanga - Davidson Variation (Rule Enforcing) Presets:

Fergus,

Here is another game with a problem:

/play/pbm/play.php?game=Latrunculi+XXI&log=j_carrillo_vii-cvgameroom-2017-345-008

I was White, and I won the game. (I used the "won" command to end the game).

Somehow the colors were switched between the players, and I ended up being Black and losing the game.

Please correct it. Thanks.

The additional move for the lone King will still be required for this preset, but the Bare King rule precedence over Stalemate will assign the win to the correct player.

I would expect the White player in the center position to resign, rather than to play, but if he plays the preset logic will now award the win to Black (no matter what White plays), and formally end the game.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-12-31 UTC

I fixed the preset. Now it will correctly give preference to a win by Bare King over Stalemate, and will correctly give the win to Player B in the position that Kevin had sugested below.

Forgive me for my late response... Better late than never! At least I'm still responding in the same year as the question! :-)

As currently programmed, for the given (unlikely) position, the result of my preset would be a win for the bare King.

I need to check the logic to account for this strange position.

I agree with Joe, it should be an automatic win for Player B, as Player A was bared prior to the stalemate, and the rules only allow for the disadvantaged bared King to play, if he would bare the other king in the next move. Nothing is provided for the case where the bare King could stalemate the opponent on his next move.

I guess this position must have had a lot to do with both stalemate and bare kings (by insuficient material) being draws in modern Chess, to avoid this dilema.

Interesting, I'm not the only one with this problem.

Did your game finished with the "won" command (instead of the resign command)?

Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-12-27 UTC

Thanks Nick.

I never noticed before.

Fergus, there is definitely something wrong with the "won" command and how it assigns the winner in the finished games log.

Here is another example:

/play/pbm/play.php?game=Latrunculi+XXI&log=j_carrillo_vii-wolff-2016-339-951

I won the game as Black, but in the finished games log it shows Nick (White) as the winner.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-12-21 UTC

Fergus,

When I search all the Latrunculi XXI games played in Game Courier with this lynk:

/play/pbm/logs.php?game=Latrunculi+XXI&age=0&stat=any

it shows that for game: erik-cvgameroom-2017-340-466 that erik won, which is incorrect.

If you go to the game itself, it shows that Black (me!) won the game. (erik was playing white).

A difference between this game and many other Latrunculi XXI games is that this game was finished with the "won" command, instead of the "resign" command.

Maybe you need to tweak the "won" command so that it shows the correct winner in the Game Logs page.

Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-12-21 UTC

Thanks Erik for the very interesting question. I do understand the question.

Rule 1c states that "it's illegal for a player to immobilize his own Dux".

Since the move you speak of opens a new path for the Dux to move, the Dux would not be immobilized, and therefore it would be a legal move; just like the Go rule where capture has priority over suicide that you refer to.

Thanks for the question. I will update the rules with a few illustration diagrams to clarify this specific situation.

Fergus,

You set the checkmated player as the winner.

White won, not black.

/play/pbm/play.php?game=Fischer+Random+Chess&log=j_carrillo_vii-josesanfer-2004-151-422

Please correct and thank you!

 


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-09-16 UTC

Thanks Fergus.

Here is another one of my games that ended in checkmate, but the status of the game was never change to "finished":

/play/pbm/play.php?game=Fischer+Random+Chess&log=j_carrillo_vii-josesanfer-2004-151-422

Can you please change the status to a win for white? Thanks in advance.

But Fergus, it's not my turn in that game.

The game timed out and should be finished.

It is still showing as an active game and this is incorrect.

Fergus,

I just issued two personal invitations to ramalan, and they went public.

It's still not working.

 


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-06-04 UTC

Fergus,

I'm trying to issue a personal invite in Game Courier for Makruk to ramalan, but it keeps being issued as a public invite.

There seems to be a bug with the invite routine.

Jose

Is anyone else having problems making moves in Game Courier?

I get a blank screen in both my iPhone and my laptop when I try to make a move in any of my games.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-01-12 UTC

Thanks Fergus.

I never run into this problem before (with the $status) and a stalemate. (I guess none of my games ever ran into a stalemate before).

Is there something I need to do to the other presets I have programmed for this particular condition?

Or your fix will take care of it for the rules in the other presets?


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-01-10 UTC

Hi Fergus,

This Makruk game with Gary ended in a stalemate draw:

/play/pbm/play.php?game=Makruk+%28Thai+chess%29&log=j_carrillo_vii-penswift-2016-335-570

However, even though the rules for the preset correctly identified the stalemate, and correctly called that this position is a draw; the game hasn't completely "finished" and the clocks are still running.

Can you please help me identified what is wrong?

Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-01-07 UTC

OK Fergus.

I'll create a new Alfaerie-Makruk piece set.


Jose Carrillo wrote on 2017-01-07 UTC

OK, Thanks.

Having said that, not being able to do what I was trying to do for Makruk takes away the ability for players to develop automated presets for variants that may use these non-totally-alpha pieces. (P180, b180, etc.)

Right now the curent set of functions just do not easily support writing rules for presets that mix pieces that have non alpha chracters, with others that don't.

If I had a new variant that used regular pieces and a silver general (S! and s!), I would have the same problem, or be forced to use a diferent piece.

The four functions that I have been suggesting would make a vast amount of code already written totally reusable for a wide variety of applications.
