ALL NEWS (read how complete 2boards lag compensator works etc.) ... (click here)

) every day, especially Friday, Saturday.
Standard and recently more popular wild, fr bughouse chess.
You can discuss it in forum
Idea is to calculate special tournaments rating.
All tournament's games are logged for postprocessing.
TLSD news: Simply flag works now like move and so is also counted and compensated lag. For double board position!
202212 Public ip adress used (184.108.40.206 instead of onlinea.4smart.eu) because of some changes on provider side.
Time lag solution (with delay 0 or bigger) implemented complete lag compensator (with lagBuffer parameter) for two boards bughouse !!!
In short, the lag (L:) will now 'jump' to the players on the second chessboard, who did sit during it, resp. they lost time (T:) when the lag became and it wasnt in delay (D), as compensation (S:) .
Lag will now only slow game down, no more damage of the double chess realtime game continuum!
Actually for all moves lag is compensated. But the algorithm allows to parameterize the total game lag per player compensation. For example if lagBuffer is 120s then any players lag over 120s is taken as he spent time by thinking.
So if lagBuffer is 120s and player during game will lag 1x 100s, 2x 5s and 1x20s, then from last lag server accept only 10s, because already accepted 100+5+5=110s and only 10s is rest from 120s lagBuffer per game.
Using lagBuffer parameter allows arbiters in tourney to have time of games, rounds and whole tournament under control.
If your opponent's time goes negative, don't panic, simply wait, opponent either will be flagged after his lagBuffer is exceeded, or flagged after he make move, or Your time will be compensated (increased) by his lag.
Added generator of Fischer Random positions (for now subset where king and rooks are in standard position. Can be asymetric white vs black, teams have always same, so its about 30x30=900 combinations of starting positions). Improved multidevices login and logout, relogin etc. If You have problems with drag-drop when moving pieces, please use click-click method rather its without problems. DragDrop will be improved in near future.
2021: Here is in alpha version with one object of DCB game on server, on the way to having multiple games runned in same time. For now should be smooth starting of new game. And wild bughouse chess
is possible to play. Also rating system is improved, with a growing difference in the strength of players in the team the change of the rating is applied more to the weaker player (ie for example instead of +-10 for both partners weaker can get +-19 and stronger +-1 rating point).
2020: There was errors in the previous years client and server versions, namely, that in some situations You were not able to make some legal moves. Also there was rare error in flagging simultaneously playing player. The errors was found and are fixed now!

Now the lag will not damage the continuum of double chess realtime game, it will only slow it down.
The algorithm allows in the future to parameterize the lag compensation. For example add a user option in terms of maximum compensated move lag, total lag and corresponding result of game like abort, win etc.
