I need help from someone who knows about UCI engines. I am giving the command by double clicking on stockfishengine.exe and manually entering commands. I wanted to play white and I am running arena to play as computer (black).

I entered the following pgns in sequence: e2e4, e7e5 (arena)... , e2e4

Commands entered:
uci
...
ucinewgame
...
position startpos
...
go infinite
...logs here...
stop
bestmove e2e4 ponder
------------
Arena GUI using stockfish engine made move : e7e5
------------
position startpos e2e4 e7e5
go infinite
...
logs here
...
stop
bestmove e2e4 ponder e7e5

As you can see above its still giving me e2e4 it should have suggested other moves for white instead of giving me the same best move. Can anyone help me on this? Thanks

Update:

Its still giving me the same best move. Maybe their are other things that I have to set before issuing position startpos ... command?

  • To debug on Stockfish console, type "d". Try it. – SmallChess Feb 2 '15 at 7:01
  • You are missing moves in the startpos command in your edited. Please look carefully how I typed. – SmallChess Feb 2 '15 at 7:17
  • oppss didn't see that thanks. Its working now. I'll try more moves and see if it will give me something else. – dimas Feb 2 '15 at 7:22
  • Its now working student_T couldn't have done it without you. Now just a quick question, I wanted to start a new post but it seems like a waste. Is there a command to tell stockfish to read a .pgn file? – dimas Feb 2 '15 at 7:49
