I'v just installed the scidb chess database, and I can't figure how to play against an engine from there.
Is this feature even supported ? If it is, how to use it ?

  • If it is not, try Scid vs. PC. – user5649 Mar 20 '15 at 14:02
  • On this page, you can see that Scidb is not intended to be used to play against an engine. – antoyo Mar 20 '15 at 15:42
  • @antoyo: Thanks a lot. So, what shall I use for game analysis and playing against the computer (and maybe online) ? – Amr Ayman Mar 20 '15 at 16:51
  • You can use scidb for game analysis (click on the train button in the board tab), chessx to play against the computer (and game analysis too) and raptor chess interface or Jin to play on FICS (Free Internet Chess Server). These softwares all work on Linux. Other software are availble on Windows and OS X. – antoyo Mar 20 '15 at 17:17

    @antoyo, why not post your comment(s) as an actual answer, since you've answered the OP's question? The site works best that way. – ETD Mar 20 '15 at 23:40

  • Thanks. Would you please recommend a GUI ? – Amr Ayman Mar 21 '15 at 7:58
  • For Linux, I recommend scidb, chessx and raptor. We need many softwares to do analysis, play against engine and play online. – antoyo Mar 21 '15 at 15:25
