XBoard with GNU Chess & Phalanx

[EDIT 2007/11/14] new version XBoard 4.2.7 iLiad 0.2 is out.
The most important new feature is: engine Phalanx with adjustable strength.
I have attached a screenshot showing that I checkmated Phalanx [easy level 100] in 13 moves. Phalanx with low strength plays real blunders [bad moves w/o progress], so beginners have a chance to win a match.
[EDIT 2007/11/08] Please wait for the new version. It should be out in a short period of time. I'm an inveterate optimist.
Please read post #15:
# Features of coming version are described there
# Why the menu was working all the time, but nobody said something.
[EDIT 2007/09/22] I have tweaked the starting shell script of Xboard/GNU Chess a bit.
Please replace the new run.sh with the old one, you can find it here on your memory card:
Programs/gnuchess/run.sh
The new run.sh patches the following:
# autosaving of all your games in "_local/home/iLiad.pgn" on memory card
# no more path entering needed in load/save dialog, just type for example iLiad.pgn or 2.pgn
# highlighting of last move

Well, my port doesn't solve the non-working menu, but we can now play the black side of world & use XBoard as a pgn-viewer. Colours of chess board were corrected, bad ghosting of old port is gone.[1]


[EDIT]: [1] "bad ghosting of old port is gone." Well, this could have been said by a PR-Manager.
I have set:
Code:
-animateDragging false -animateMoving false
Some
Code:
dmDisplay(dmCmdPriorUrgent, dmQFull);
are needed to get rid of ghosting.
[EDIT II]: Yep, design256 added some
Code:
dmDisplay(dmCmdPriorUrgent, dmQTyping);
in src.

Right now my port lives w/o
Code:
#include <liberdm/erdm.h>
#include <liberipc/eripcbusyd.h>
#include <liberipc/eripc.h>
I will change this.

[EDIT III]: Uhh, I found in design256's src how he got the chess board to the middle of the srceen. Right now it lies next to the left.
src can you find here.
very OT. Yes, i have now a ftp account to upload files to MR.

explanation of screenshots:
#1 XBoard iLiad 0.1
#2 XBoard iLiad 0.1 with modded starting shell script. Dou you see the clock in/at/on* the top right corner & mouse cursor?
*=non-native Englisch speaker
#3 XBoard iLiad 0.2 with checkmated Phalanx [new screenshot]

Erm ... is there any possibility at all of the new port doing weird things to the screen refresh in general???

Ever since I installed it last night, I'm getting sluggish refreshes, in ipdf as well as mobipocket ... also, refresh to black and back again where there wasn't before ... and a randomly appearing selection bar in the content lister.

Suggestions?

Did you install it to main memory or to an external card?

To main memory. Had done the same with the earlier version without any problems.

That's the problem, if you delete the _local/lib/libX11.so.6 file and reboot, it should fix your refresh issues. I've made a new thread regarding this issue.

Thanks Adam!

The only file I can see that almost fits that name is
libX11.so.6

Is that the correct one?

And just to be absolutely clear on this -

I can delete this file from Windows Explorer, right?
And then I wait for yokos to repackage gnuchess?

Yes, Yes and Yes.

Sorry about that, I wasn't sure of the exact file name.

Problems solved, everything back to normal. Thanks again for taking the time to get this sorted for me - I'm attending an informal gathering at my child's school later today and was hoping for a lot of bored dads to be impressed with my Iliad....

Hey, I guess I just did some Unvoluntary Beta-Testing!

Here are some Go games. The ones wich are written with GTK+ are hot candidates.
gtktetris, calcoo, gtkclock = GTK+

Yesterday I thought a while what to add/change on my XBoard port.
Why doesn't work the menu? I open a menu branch with stylus but can't click on a entry because the menu disappeared.
Oh man, sometimes I'm so stupid. It's XBoard not GTKBoard.
The menu of XBoard behaves like all other X apps on the world!
Click on a menu branch and HOLD the left mouse key, move the mouse cursor to desireable entry and release left mouse key.
It's the same on iLIad:
# Click with stylus on menu brach & keep stylus on screen
# menu appears
# move stylus on desireable entry
# lift stylus

Please wait for a new XBoard version.
# state-of-the-art-installer [for all memories, stripped libraries]
# new chess engine Phalanx, which has got a adjustable strength
# Bug: some dialogs open as fullscreen dialog. I will be fixed.
