Version 10.01: three bugs fixed

  • Tourney elo, the personalities don´t appear. (detected by nalbouki and PeonPasado)
  • Transsiberian Railway, some problems in the end game training (detected by Will H.)
  • The update system is not working, there is not option to pass from 10.00 to 10.01 via Information/Search for updates.


  1. Moves announcement.
    I do not know if this is the right place to ask,in case let me know.
    One question about sounds / Move announcements. I have been using version 8 and had been able, following some previous instructions now lost, to download a complete set of sounds/move announcements, so that the program was automatically announcing my and opponent's moves. Now, changing version, I have completely lost this feature and the relative sounds. Somebody can suggest me again where these sounds are downloadable and where to install it ?
    Thank you and best compliments about the program

    1. When the program is installed the folder UsrData, where all this information is saved remains intact.
      This folder is installed in the same folder than LucasChess binaries.
      The correct way to reinstall the program is to let the installation program to do all work.
      I don´t know if this is the problem.

  2. The personalities still based on Greco Lukas?

    1. Yes, personalities based on RodentII is still preparing.

  3. ¡Hola Lucas!
    Estoy tratando de instalar la versión 10 en Linux y se me presentó este problemita luego de compilar satisfactoriamente LCEngine e irina:

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "", line 40, in
    import Code.Init
    File "./Code/", line 13, in
    from Code import Procesador
    File "./Code/", line 5, in
    from Code import Albums
    File "./Code/", line 5, in
    from Code import Books
    File "./Code/", line 7, in
    from Code import ControlPosicion
    File "./Code/", line 1, in
    import LCEngine
    ImportError: ./ undefined symbol: movegen_piece_to

    Al parecer faltan las referencias a irina. ¿Me pudiera dar una idea de cómo solucionar esto?

    ¡Como siempre gracias por su magnífico programa! Reciba mis saludos

    1. Tienes que incluir la librería en el raiz, junto a
      Prueba y me dices si sigue sin funcionar.

    2. Hola:
      Probé copiando en la raíz pero me da el mismo error. Un detalle es que en el makefile de irina la biblioteca se generaba como libirina.a en vez de .so, lo cambié pero da el mismo error a la hora de ejecutar Lucas.
      ¡Gracias por su pronta respuesta!

    3. Prueba con un lanzador por ejemplo:
      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=.

    4. Creando el lanzador da el mismo resultado. Tengo que investigar un poco más el tema... Me da la impresión de que se está enlazando estáticamente con ¿Pudiera ser que la referencia movegen_piece_to no está declarada "extern"?

    5. Con ese lanzador funciona en un Linux-Mate, instalado en una máquina virtual (que supongo que es lo de menos).
      Quizás tengas que añadir al PATH el "."

  4. Can't download Grandmaster files in section "Play like a Grandmaster"

    1. Yes, I´ll try to publish 10.02 next week with this problem fixed.

  6. can't get dgt board to work with this version

    1. Can you tell me where is the file DGTEBDLL.dll in your system ?
      I need the path, something like "c:\Program Files\DGT Projects"
      Also you can copy this file in the LucasChess folder.
