ChessLink as UCI Integration for ARENA and FRITZ

Lars Nowak

Suitabke for:

  • Windows PC with ARENA via USB
  • Windows PC with FRITZ (version 7 or higher) via USB

The UCI ChessLink Engine integrates the ChessLink interface into any UCI capable chess program.

The interface simulates a UCI engine and transfers moves from the board to the PC and vice versa. Both ARENA and FRITZ have already been successfully tested with it. The program supports both the Exclusive boards and The King Performance.

Thanks to Lars Nowak for this great expansion!

Please find downloads, documentation, limitations and installation advice here.

Python library for integration in chess software

Dominik Schlosser

Suitable for:

  • Linux, USB, Bluetooth-LE
  • Raspberry PI, USB, Bluetooth LE
  • Windows: USB
  • MacOS: USB

The software is designed in such a way that it is easy to add new transports (e.g. other Bluetooth variants).

On the basis of our interface definitions for the chess link, Dominik Schlösser has written a library for the Python programming language, which allows a comparatively easy integration of the interface into existing chess software products. The project is currently still in its early stages, and is designed to allow chess software developers to quickly integrate the ChessLink and the Millennium exclusive checkerboard.

The library supports:

  • Automatic hardware detection on USB
  • Automatic Bluetooth search
  • Train display via LEDs (optional display of 4 deductions in the analysis mode via LED sequences)
  • Interoperability with Python-chess
  • Fen Import
  • Position setup via board or Fen
  • UCI engines (tested with Stockfish and Leela chess Zero)

The library abstracts the details of the log, and provides functions such as: querying the position of the Millennium Board in fen format, passing the user’s train to the engine, Signalisi the engine’s train by LEDs

Our request: If you want to use the library or our interface, please inform us briefly about your project and also about the completion. We would like to pay tribute to successful implementations and make them available to all users at this point. Simply send a short email at info@computerchess.com.

The necessary files-including the complete interface documentation from the ChessLink-can be found on Github.

ChessLink as DLL Integration for ARENA, LUCASCHESS and SHREDDER

Graham O’Neill

Suitable for:

  • Windows PC with ARENA, LUCASCHESS or SHREDDER via USB
  • Linux PC with LUCASCHESS via USB
  • Allows direct control of the board without the need for an engine vs. engine match.
  • Can be used in playing against engines (with take back moves) as well as for analysing positions or playing through games.
  • In Shredder allows positions to be set up using the board.
  • In LucasChess allows the board to be used in the training options (e.g. learning opening lines).
  • The program supports the Exclusive boards, Supreme Tournament 55 and The King Performance.

Please find downloads and documentation here. There is a “Contact Me” page on that site to get in touch with the developer directly.
