Time Control Difficulties

Postby Gabriel_Ruan » 10 Jun 2021, 20:02

Hello. I would like to play against an engine with a time handicap, from a saved position. It's not possible to alter time control once the position is loaded, so I do it before, which is fine if a little cumbersome. The thing is that upon loading the FEN, the time control is reversed, and I have less time than the engine. The workaround I found was to set the time control in reverse, but that too is a little cumbersome.

Occasionally my moves are rejected on the basis of illegality despite the rules of the game. I don't know whether it's Winboard or the engine I'm using (Fairy-SF) that is to blame.

Edit: It's come to my attention the handicap changes colors upon editing the position, not necessarily loading one.

Am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
