I wrote a new "Hardware Input Engine" allowing to connect a "Saitek Kasparov PC Auto chessboard" to SCID.
In theory all we should do to enable it in SCID, is select "Tool" / "Connect Hardware" / "Configure", then:
- select "Input Engine"
- change "Engine Command" to the new driver executable (port does not matter with my program as it is hardcoded to /dev/port for parallel port access)
- Press "OK"
Then go to "Tool" / "Connect Hardware" / "Connect Input Engine".
In SCID 4.2.2 this configuration setting is ignored and SCID still tries to call the default "dgtdrv2.i686" executable.
(note there is a temporary workaround: create a link (I use Linux) named "dgtdrv2.i686" somewhere in the "PATH" pointing to other executable.
