    I have Peppermint (like LUbuntu), on my old HP Mini  ;-)

    Thats not easy to compile ScidvsPC. Scid is no big problem, because the old version is really installt.

    The annotate button on my scid vs. pc doesn't work. When I click on it, it opens a window "Configure Annotation". I select the choices I want and click "Ok" and nothing happens. Does anyone else have this problem and know how to fix it? I tried upgrading to the latest version of scid vs. pc and it didn't help. 

    I am trying to use the batch annotate feature to analyze 100 positions that I have in a database. Is there another program that can do this?

    This is pretty weird. It always worked for me (I've just verified this with SCID vs PC 4.15), I've been using Komodo 6/7 and Stockfish 6 with SCID vs PC. Does an engine start for you when you press the little "train" (?) icon (Analysis Engines) in the toolbar? Do you use only the default engines that came preinstalled with SCID?

    I always start the engine first, before annotating. Pretty sure that is the way it has to be done. Maybe that is the problem idoun is seeing.

    I can run any analysis engine fine.

    What's really odd is that I did a bunch more tests on different databases and the ones I created a long time ago, with games already in them, the batch annotation works fine. It only does not work for any new databases I create. It looks like I can use the "Maintenance" window to delete all games, I can then compact the database, and then hopefully loading the new positions I want into that old database will work. Although I will be losing old games. 

    I have no idea why it does not work with new databases, maybe there is some limit to how many databases one can have?

    Shouldn't be a limit, unless maybe you are loading a lot of them at once.

    I updated last week and when I get on the computer that has that version on it I will test mine on a new database.

    Also, you are on a database and not just a PGN file?

    Yes, I create a new database. Then I open a PGN file containing the positions and drag it onto the database in the Gamelist window, which copies the positions into the database. 

    Another thought, which I doubt, but I am grasping at straws - maybe I have not been deleting old databases properly. I didn't find a way to do it in the program so I had been deleting the actual files outside of the program (when the program was not running). But I don't see why this would affect new databases. I can try to make a database in a new directory and see if it works.

    OK, had a chance to try this. Created a new database. Added some games. Started the engine, clicked the auto-annotate feature, changed the setting to batch annotate, and it worked as expected.

    Finally figured it out, after trying all sorts of things including installing different versions of scid vs. pc on multiple OSs and trying different .pgn files and different databases, both new and old. The .pgn file I was using only contains positions, not complete games. On newer versions of scid vs. pc, the batch annotate does not work for PGN files containing only positions.

    I've never tried that but I would think you can get it to at least evaluate the position and insert a score. Based on the way the auto-annotate feature is designed, I don't see that it would do more than that.

    Did that work before?

    Hi guys, I have a question please.

    How do you change the disturbing green color of the annotation text? It's horrible and it hurts the eyes very bad.

    Thanks!

    That's one way to do it I suppose.

    This way seems a ton easier to me:

    Yes, it worked both ways. Thanks a lot!

    The interface is a bit stupid, I have a lot of space on the screen but the board is still small. I think that's because of the text above the table. Is there a way to remove it so the table can be larger?

    @TawMoto I use scid vs. Mac and I can just drag the line to left and right easily, just by grabing the line and moving with the mouse

    I checked and unchecked the auto-resize and the result is the same...I will get used to it. Thanks.Smile

    Only one questions and I am gone. Cool

    Is there a possibility to change the default number of lines of the engine? Because it's always 1 when I restart SCID.

    Also, the font size of the engine lines would be nice to change, too...

    The default number of lines is set in each engine's settings and you can configure that.
