selecting sound locks program

Hello scid users,

Have any of you had the issue in windows version 3.7 where selecting 
options/sounds locks the program?  Just wondering if its a known problem 
or an issue with my own system.

Thanks,

Mapleleaf

I have no problem on Windows XP. Note that the file selection dialog box 
takes a few seconds to display.

keyboard movements do not work

Hi,


With scid 3.6.1, I could type 'e4' on the keyboard and the white pawn would move to e4. This no longer works with scid 3.7 (I deleted ~/.scid).


Is there a setting I should turn on?


Thanks,

Ittay

Sorry, Pascal packaged already before this made it into 3.7. :(

It will be in 3.7.1, therefore, or it's in cvs.

I suppose that would do the trick. Heck it frustrated me quite a bit,  
when I found out that the current filter has no bearing whatsoever on  
the games selected for the crosstable. As a side note, if some people  
in the crosstable have 100 games (or more) while others still have 99  
(or fewer), the columns are not aligned.

Thanks for your attention to this.

Agree, this confused me at first sight as well. However, the
internal mechanism is consistent. It just didn't has our
"slightly" slower gameplay in mind ;)

I'll see if I can come up with a suitable handling. But at
first glance it seemed not totally trivial.

You're right, it is broken in docking mode. Just checked.

To fix it you have to disable docking mode by
Options/Windows/Dock Windows and restart Scid. It works like
a charme in classic mode.

How can I resize the window

Under Ubuntu, I can only resize the windows vertically (make it shorter or longer) but not horizontally. (Maybe this is related to turning off windows docking)


Thanks,

Ittay

In classic mode you can use Options / Chessboard / Size to set the board 
size (like in 3.6.1) Note, that not all sizes are possible as we've the 
bitmaps for the pieces only at some values.

Release of Scid 3.7

Hi!

One or the other might have noticed already, Pascal put up
new binaries for Scid 3.7 yesterday afternoon. As usual now,

 From the ChangeLog:

- This release requires Tcl/Tk 8.5 or higher
- Fix : Game annotation, annotating all moves : when the next move was 
the expected one (calculated by the engine), no annotation was added, 
which was not coherent with "annotate all moves"
- Reworked board setup dialog (thanks to Steven Atkinson)
- Correspondence chess :
   * Parse "TimeControl" and show in tooltip if it is sent by the server
- Sound:
   * Add "alert" sound from the CE to the PC version as well. Use
     ::utils::sound::PlaySound "sound_alert"
   * wav-file added to the package
- Correspondence Chess
   * Adopt button alignement
   * Allow to specify the rating system used by the site (if none is 
given, default to ICCF)
   * Make window resizable
   * Make window dockable
   * Fix: call mailers on windows if installed to dirs with spaces
   * New email games now show up in the game list immediately, flags
   are preset for europe to give the user an idea what to set at all.
   * Show last move in tooltip for the "to move" icon (suggested by Dhanish)
   * move delete in/outbox button furter away from Process Inbox 
(suggested by Dhanish)
   * Yes/No dialogue before cleaning the in/outbox (suggested by Dhanish)
   * All paths required use $scidDataDir/$scidConfigDir variable if 
possible. This allows more seemless usage from an USB drive on Windows 
where the drive letters change all the time.
   * Improve GUI for non-unique game IDs.
   * Deleted games are now ignored in search of a sync-target.
   * Fix: offline state file kept growing infinitely
   * Cancelled games now no longer show up in the games list (suggested 
by Austin and wyb)
- Tools Menu
   * Remove Novag entry
   * Add "Connect Hardware"
   * Add "Connect Hardware / Configure" usable for Novag & Input Engine
   * Add "Connect Hardware / Input Engine"
   * Add "Connect Hardware / Novag Citrine"
   * Make hardware connect buttons visibility configurable
     (remove it needs restart)
- Novag Citrine
   * Remove own config (replaced by unified dialogue)
   * Use unified "Connect Hardware" dialoge and parameters thereof
   * Use "hardware connect" button
   * Set button images according to current state
- Input Engine Support:
   * Rework of GUI
   * Handle "illegal moves" (warn user, ignore them)
   * Add "rotate board"
   * Add Synchronise button
   * Add Miniboard to the console
   * Add NLS
   * Add Support for DGT XL external clock
   * Colour various states in move area
   * To use a DGT Electronic Chess Board  dgtdrv V1.21 or higher is 
required. (http://dgtdrv.sf.net)
   * Make window dockable
- Docs
   * Update Novag part (as far as possible)
   * Add "Connect Hardware" with subtopics to english help
   * Add "Input Engine" including some remarks about DGT
- NLS
   * Add tags for all hardware connection dialogues
   * German translation for the tags added
- Database information
   * Add the ability to write Dublin Core metadata for a Scid database
   by means of Tools / Database information. This includes reading
   metadata from a sme file.
   * menu item disabled for future use
- Mask (Tree window) :
	* added menu entry to remove NAG value for a move
	* added entry in popup menu to enter moves not present in Tree
	* In training mode, game is annotated if the user made poor moves 
(related to values in Mask)
- Book tuning :
	* any move can be added to a polyglot book at a given position (thanks 
to Michel Van den Bergh)
	* moves present in the book at ply N+1 but where the previous move is 
not present at ply N, is displayed in the lower part of the book window 
: see button "other moves" and its tooltip (thanks to Michel Van den Bergh)
- Plenty of changes in user interface, among others :
	* New entry in "options -> windows" to show / hide game info panel 
(this can also be triggered in docked mode by using main board tab)
	* New option-> Themes (only small parts of Scid are themable, this will 
be increased in the future)
	* Removed file combobox.tcl (widget migrated to ttk::combobox)
	* Windows can be docked inside a main window (options menu) : In docked 
mode, the most important windows are embedded into a main one. The 
windows can be reordered by right-clicking on the tab (where the title 
of the window is) and by dragging tabs from one notebook to another. The 
menu for each window that has one (marked with a triangle at the left of 
the tab) is opened by left cliking on the tab.
- updated dutch translation (thanks to Michel Van den Bergh)
- updated spanish translation (thanks to Benigno Hernández)
- Fix : Tree window : when a Mask is opened, the whole line is clickable 
(not only the part with moves and stats)
- EPD:
   * UCI lines are now written in the usual formatted form
   * acs is added as resulted from the analysis
- FICS:
   * console : autoscrolling is turned off if the view is not located at 
the end of the text
   * Fix : FICS connection. Better handling of connection error if 
behind a firewall or network is down, and avoid parsing of incomplete 
packets (new code ported to Scid Pocket)
   * Fix : FICS bug when parsing players names and ELO
   * Dialogues strings added to language files
- Tree window : when a Tree is updated and the current base is not the 
Tree's one, the Tree base will automatically load the first game in the 
filter (so by switching to the Tree's base, the position is already set 
to the previous one and for example an Opening report can be immediately 
generated)
- Import clipboard as game : on Unix systems the X selection is pasted 
only if the clipboard is empty
- MacOS : various updates (better support, among them the switch of 
mouse buttons 2 & 3) (thanks to Israel Chauca Fuentes)
- Book :
	* last opened book is reopened by default
	* Books should be usable from read only drives as well (without
	tuning/save of course)
- Bug : fixed a possible crash when generating a player report when the 
opened base has no games (segmentation fault)
- Analysis / Game annotation:
   * book moves are now translated
   * Fix: Error when engine list was opened with window already open
   * Fix: typo for UCI_ShredderbasesPath in preserved UCI_ options
- Serious game and Tactical game : parameters are saved
- added spanish ECO file scid-esp.eco (thanks to Benigno Hernández)
- newly created bases are appended to the recently opened bases in menu 
(thanks to Benigno Hernández)
- "Average Elo" and "average year" could be wrong with large databases. 
Corrected by using 64 bits integers (thanks to Heinz van Saanen)
- PGN window : colors for current and next moves are now user configurable
- Bug fix : Scid could crash when using some languages like Hungarian 
and Swedish (segfault in functions transPieces and transPiecesChar)
- Added piece translations for hungarian, swedish and norvegian languages
- Serious and tactical games : fixed repetition detection
- Changed the way SPF files (data players) are loaded. This spares some 
memory and Scid's start up is a little bit faster. New script in scripts 
directory : scf2spi.tcl (thanks to Mikhail Kalenkov)
- Players' name standarization : strictly follow PGN requests by leaving 
a period after an initial (standardPlayerName in pgnparse.cpp)
- Unix version : changed the way the tkscid path is searched to use 
scid's directory (thanks to Joost´t Hart)
