    nihilarian, it means the file isn't there. You probably forgot to switch to downloads folder where your file is.

    cd ~/Downloads

    pwd   <-- will tell you where you are
    ls   <-- lists files, similar to "dir" on Windows,
    "ls -la" will list all the files, including the hidden ones, plus show their permissions, etc.

    Does anyone have the the code line of the color scheme that looks like fritz? It was posted in the first pages of the topic but the link is broken.

    Thanks.

    This forum seems more targeted toward code errors, but perhaps someone could answer a more basic question. Does anyone know how to get an engine to score +/- on single moves in a variation? I'm working out some kinks in my CKD and would like to see scores on the moves I'm considering. All I can seem to do is get Toga to evaluate replies to the current move rather than score the current move itself. Going a move back doesn't work because sometimes the engine isn't considering the move I'd like it to evaluate.

    If I am understanding you correctly, then by definition, the evaluation for the current move is the same as what your opponent's best reply would be.

     

    So, if I just made a move for White and the  engine says black's best reply has a score of -0.5, then my move has White down half a pawn. If I am misunderstanding, I apologize.

    Is this what you want ?

    Right Click on the "+" Icon. Score will be added instead of move.

    To remove engine name, change "Add Name" in Tools->AnalysisEngines

    my Quick heal antivirus reported a virus in scid vs pc 4.12.

    Does any one experienced the same?

    No. Did you just download it? If so, my suspicion is that you got it from someone who modified it.

    Either that or it's simply a false positive, something I understand is not unusual with many antivirus programs.

    I use Kaspersky, installed many versions of Scid and Scid vs PC in the past few years and never had any kind of report.

    Yes, downloaded recently from sourceforge.net, the usual site

    You can upload the file to VirusTotal and have about 50 programs check it out. If you don't know who's creating the executable, you might have to worry about whether the file had been run through a crypting service to get a good result from VirusTotal, but in this case, I think we can trust the author (at least I hope so, lol).

    Could someone tell me how to give and withdraw an engine's access to tablebases? An earlier post (page 13) discussed that Stockfish does not require an endgame tablebase, but even with 10 seconds to calculate the poor old girl is making obviously losing moves. I have tablebases loaded and can see the tablebase info, but the engines I'm working with are not using the data.

    Nice though it may be to beat Stockfish, I'd like to get in some proper practice.

    Yeah, the engine has to be designed to use tablebases. For UCI engines, I think you'd have to go into the Scid vs. PC menus to set the tablebases for engine use. Tools --> Analysis Engines --> Edit --> Configure.

    The official Stockfish version can't use tablebases, but I thought it was still pretty good in the endgame. There are two unofficial versions of Stockfish that can use tablebases:

    The Syzygy tablebases (I haven't tried these):

    The Gaviota tablebases:

    Spike 1.4 and Arasan 17.2 can use Nalimov tablebases and Critter 1.6a can use Gaviotta.
