No stockfish! Have installed from play store 6 times now, and get message "error starting engine". It gives a path of "com.kaleb.pgnviewer/files/livestockfish.so" and says "permission denied". When I look that folder /files/ it is empty! This used to work on my old phone a moto g4. Used it all the time and loved it. But, now I install it on my moto One hyper and everything works but no engine to play which makes it mostly unusable for my needs. Any help, appreciated

Hi. You can reach me at gkalab3@gmx-topmail.de. Does the internal engine work? Because the internal engine is stockfish. Manually added engines don't work anymore from Android 10+ (Google restriction). You can install engine apps - search for chess engines oex or stockfish oex in the play store.

You let as add game but we can't delete a game. Now my game list is terrible. There is no delete game in edit mode. Only delete current variation, current move, and previous moves are available. I am only using the free version.

I see. In the free version you cannot delete games from files. In fact you should not be able to add new games to files. The only option would be to add games to favorites. When you open the favorites you can delete games from the favorites.

The "Side to move" orientation setting seems to be busted after the last update. A little annoying when using the app for solving puzzles. Update- Issue fixed

Thanks for the bug report. This should be fixed for the next version. You can install the open beta version where this fix is already included.
