Trouble with used-defined variants and chess engines

Postby Ivan P » 29 Dec 2022, 23:11

Hello again!

After a year and a half my interests circled back to chess variants which led me back to WinBoard. Last time I've had trouble with Sjaak II and it was partially solved to the point where I only have to wait for a new version of either to drop. Having checked and seen that nothing new came out yet, I've decided to give Fairy-Stockfish a try.

As an exercise/test, I've decided to define a replica of the standard Shogi rules. This is the code:
Code: Select all
# 9×9 shogi
[shogic]
variantTemplate = shogi
maxRank = 9
maxFile = 9
shogiPawn = p
lance = l
shogiKnight = n
silver = s
gold = g
bishop = b
dragonHorse = h
rook = r
bers = d
king = k
startFen = lnsgkgsnl/1r5b1/ppppppppp/9/9/9/PPPPPPPPP/1B5R1/LNSGKGSNL[-] w 0 1
pieceDrops = true
capturesToHand = true
promotionRank = 7
doubleStep = false
castling = false
promotedPieceType = l:g n:g p:g s:g b:h r:d
dropNoDoubled = p
immobilityIllegal = true
shogiPawnDropMateIllegal = true
stalemateValue = loss
nFoldRule = 4
nMoveRule = 0
perpetualCheckIllegal = true
pocketSize = 7
nFoldValue = loss
nFoldValueAbsolute = true
pieceToCharTable = PNBR.S...G........L..Kpnbr.s...g........l..k


The board loads correctly, and when I switch to "two engines" mode everything seems okay for a while. However, once a promoted piece gets captured, something weird happens. The piece enters the "pocket" still promoted, and it can't be brought out anymore. And then, when the bot tries to bring out a piece it thinks it has, WinBoard calls illegal move.

I've raised the issue with the author of Fairy-Stockfish: https://github.com/ianfab/Fairy-Stockfish/issues/561 The author said that I've configured Fairy-Stockfish correctly and that the issue is likely with WinBoard. Can I get some help?

Thank you for your time.

Oh, right. This is the debug file:

It doesn't seem configured correctly: you promote pieces, but the promoted types are not in the pieceToCharTable. WinBoard probably still uses the legacy way to promote the pieces (i.e. changes them in the piece type 11 places further in the pieceToCharTable, even when this piece type does not have an ID defined for it). But since it is specified nowhere that they should demore on capture, it doesn't do that. So the unpromoted version is then not in the 'pocket', and when an engine tries to drop a piece that is not in hand it will of course be flagged as an illegal move.

The legacy way of defining the promoted pieces is to write a + for them in the pieceToCharTable. That tells WinBoard they should demote when captured. A more advanced way is to write a two-character combination ^ plus letter in the position of the image you want to represent the promoted type with. (Which then can be an arbitrary image, rather than only the image 11 places further in the table). Like ^S for a promoted Silver, etc.

Re: Trouble with used-defined variants and chess engines

I have entered the promoted pieces into the char table.
Now it reads:
Code: Select all
pieceToCharTable = PNBR.S...G...HD...L..Kpnbr.s...g...hd...l..k

however, the problem with promotion still persists.

Also, even when I load a game of this custom replica of shogi played by the engine (and converted to pgn), the problem still shows up:
Player A takes B's promoted piece -> promoted piece ends up in A's hand.
A few turns later, A tries to place (what it thinks is) the unpromoted piece -> WinBoard throws an error and stops loading the game.

Update. I've tried some additional stuff.
Firstly, I've changed the first line to:
Code: Select all
[shogic:shogi]

so that Fairy-SF's default shogi settings get inherited. It didn't work.
However, when I try to load Fairy-SF's shogi itself, the captured pieces "unpromote" correctly.

The way I've written the game, it works correctly on fairy-SF's testing website: https://fairyground.vercel.app/

Well, so the Fairy-SF testing website is broken...

By defining the promoted Bishop and Rook as H and D, you define the variant as 'Loop Shogi', where promoted pieces do not demote when they are captured. To define a demotable piece you would have to specify it as a '+':

pieceToCharTable = PNBR.S...G...++...L..Kpnbr.s...g...++...l..k

WinBoard will then always use +B and +R for the piece in notation; there is no way to assign an independent ID for demotable pieces.

Another flaw is that you did not define promoted versions of Pawn, Knight, Silver and Lance.

Furthermore, beware that in Shogi (and thus also in engine-defined variants that use Shogi as a parent variant) WinBoard uses an alternate set of piece images, for legacy reasons. In particular, the Queen would show up as a Lance (and would also have the preprogrammed move of it). It then uses the (non-configurable) rule that the first 6 piece types promote on reaching the enemy camp. By default WinBoard uses for Shogi:

pieceToCharTable = PNBRLS...G.+++++.....Kpnbrls...g.+++++.....k

I have just played it and I love it. Nice board and pieces, good job man. I hope you sort out the problems.
