Troubleshooting



Bot unable to recognize chess boards / Bot doesn't work properly / Cheat bot doesn't work at all.

Here is detailed setup manual.

And here is the short version of it. Please follow these steps:

1. Make sure that board and pieces look like shown on screenshots: http://chess-bot.com/websites/SupportedWebsites.html
2. Use
Chrome
only.
3. Make sure that your display configuration is default: how to check it?
4. Make sure that your
browser's zoom (scaling) is set to default (100%)
on the page with the game: how to check it?
5. On Windows - right click on desktop -> Display settings ->
set the size of text, apps and other items back to 100%
. Restart Windows after that. See screenshot.
6. Turn OFF "Windows HD Color" option (on the newest versions of Windows 10).
7. Hide bookmarks panel on Google Chrome, if it is visible (press Ctrl+Shift+B).
8. If nothing helps, please contact support and
send screenshots
of chessboard (whole screen is preferred) in PNG or BMP format.

Error 193: %1 is not a valid Win32 application.


Please try to create folder on disk C:\ (name of the folder must be in english, it is important - something like this
C:\Engine\
), put stockfish_32.exe into this folder and load it with chessbot.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bot makes first move only and stops.


Maybe you have "Play by key" feature enabled.  "Play by key" feature allows bot to play automatically, but it will make each move only after you pressing the key on keyboard ("P" by default).

Chess bot suggests very strange moves in advisor mode.


Please disable animations at website settings.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Program stop responding sometimes.


Please make sure to press Alt+X (by default) after end of every game to unload engine from memory.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Advisor mode doesn't work at Lichess v2 interface.


First of all, please make sure to use ChessBotX 1.5.1 or higher.

Secondly, try to resize board. Usually - standard 85% size is fine. However, if it doesn't work with this size, try to use 84% size or 100%. You can also try other sizes. After resize, press
Ctrl+Alt+G
, red grid should appear on the screen. Make sure that grid is completely fit to the chess board. If it doesn't fit, try another size of the board.

You can also try to change screen resolution: 1366x768, 1440x900, 1600x900, 1920x1080 are recommended.
