Hi Niksa, Thanks for your interest in GNU Chess, and for reporting about your experience with it.
Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce the problem you describe. I have tried the first command and I think it works fine. I have tried with XBoard versions 4.9.1, 4.8.0 and 4.5.2, on two different O.S. After starting the program, I chose Mode - Machine Match, and GNU Chess starts playing against itself. Certainly, the way GNU Chess reads commands on its standard input has changed since v6.2.4, since it now uses a mechanism based on readline. Could you give more information for troubleshooting your problem? - log file adapter.log - you can enable it setting Log = true in gnuchess.ini - config.status and config.log - Does it happen with older versions of XBoard? - Does it happen with other options for XBoard? For instance: xboard -fcp 'gnuchess --xboard' -scp 'gnuchess --xboard -fd <dirf> -sd <dirs> xboard -fcp 'gnuchess --xboard' - Which operating system are you using?
