In last months i put alot of effort to make all picochess settings available on the DGT clock too. But some settings aren’t that important or simply too complex to enter on the DGT chess clocks – for example your eMail(-server). Also alot of users would like to be able to bring their DGTPi clock online to update picochess.
Well, for the WPA keys there is a way from the underlying linux system called “raspi-config”. All you need to do it login to your raspberry pi (DGT-Pi chess computer), and enter this command by hand. But despite this wlan stuff – as an example what you can configure with raspi-config – i’m always asked to provide a better user interface to setup more. Similar to “raspi-config” i implemented a software called “pico-config”, where you can setup most missing picochess parameters. This software is not meant to be used all the time instead to build a bridge to users fearing to enter commands on linux directly. Right now this software is not part of picochess, but if download it here:
Since this tool is no longer beta and alot of people using this without giving me abit money back, i now decided to increase the minimum price from 0€ to 2€. If you have a subscription plan you get from 50% to 100% discount (depending on your level).
I shortly describe abit the software sections:
Another parameter is this “slow slide factor” which basically slow down the piece recognition in case you suffer from multi spoken voices during you’re sliding very slowly. Please only change this to not zero if you suffer this problem.
You navigate through the menus selecting with “ok” or go back one step to upper levels. If you at the top level leaving this tool your choosen values are written to the picochess.ini file. Now you only need to restart your picochess and you can enjoy this settings. Have fun!
