Just come back to chess after a long pause. I want to set up a position -- a simple one -- and then have gnuchess reply to my moves as I try for a mate. But, with a simple Q+K against K alone, gnuchess resigns after one move and I'd like it to play on. Can I persuade it to do this?


1 Answer 1


Try increasing the ResignScore option


Default: 600

This is the score in centipawns that will trigger resign "counting".
