Hi Paolo,

Thank you for the link to the Programmer's guide.  We will certainly let you know if we accomplish anything useful.  So far we succeeded in talking to Leonardo via a terminal program.  We are aiming to create an interrupt driven device driver.  So far the driver receives but stubbornly refuses to transmit.  We are writing in c and developing on Linux but we think it will be very easy to port to Windows.

Hi Paolo!
Happy to know that you still love chess!
You know me under a different name . (remeber when i told you that i bring my renaissance to bed ..... )

Only to say if you know about the OSA4UCI engine used to conect the renaissance/leonardo ecc with Arena?
I tried it and it works! 

Regards.

Many, many, years ago, I wrote a little program called "Maecenas":

http://digilander.libero.it/violini/

Here you can find also the OSA manual.

Please note that:

1) Even if I have not the time to develop it anymore I would be interested to know if you are doing something useful.

2) Actually, around 2006 I started to develop a much more complete (well, we might say "less incomplete") version of maecenas capable of interfacing with winboard and I played with it several games on FICS. But, since it was not enough stable (I should add that perhaps I was too demanding on this issue) I never released it.

Paolo

Hello Raymond,

For documentations about chess computers on Internet , try :

In first on Alain Zanchetta's site
and if you don't find it, perhaps you could find it on the rest of the web ;-)
So try http://alain.zanchetta.free.fr/docs/Saitek/OsaCableUS.pdf

Cordialy,
Mychess

I am looking for the Advanced OSA Programmer's Guide for the SciSys Leonardo.

I want to data drive the Leonardo from a PC bypassing or interacting with the internal program through the rs232 connector.  I have the specialized cable/connector.

Has anyone done this?

I know that Chessbase implemented an interface using this technology.
