Projects / Gameclock


Gameclock is a fairly simple application designed to track the time spent thinking by the players during a chess game. Various clock engines are available (speed chess, fisher chess, board games, or hourglass). The graphical interface is keyboard-driven and is intended to be minimal and simple. The code is made to be extensible to other game types.

    Release Notes: Since the last beta3 release, no significant bug was found, apart from a weird bug with Pulseaudio, which may be blamed on Pulseaudio issue #10438. Therefore, this stable release has been published after fixing the sort order of the games in the "New" menu. The resulting package has been uploaded to Debian stable and should migrate down to the new testing release, Jessie, in a week or so. This is a stable release, available as a tarball and in Debian.

      Release Notes: This is a bugfix release, but also features "restart" functionality and changes the default. It fixes theming translations, has a prettier shortcuts window, fixes a few bugs with the File menu, implements restart, and changes the default to a 5 minute lightning game.

        Release Notes: This release makes the application more easily extensible and saner. The big new feature is Go clocks, of which only the "standard" byo-yomi is implemented so far. Sound support is improved, but disabled by default to avoid the computer making noise unless asked. This release also includes per-clock move counters, translations, arbitrary clock format support, and a completely-redesigned user interface.

          Release Notes: This release fixes an old display bug in the first window, removes hours from the display, fixes a critical bug with fisher which was giving 10s advantage to the left clock, switches from miliseconds to tenths of a second, and merges the status bars back into one.
