Hi, I tested it together with friends and have to say:
1) Its working fine for simul bughouse
2) It working fine for 3 or 4 players also,
but it has still not robust-way solved cases when somebody disconnecting or losing connection, in such case is needed to restart NetGame server and again all which wish play have to normally join. Otherwise appearing errors like role mischmas.

Btw. I played several bug simuls from different starting position also, and was funny interresting game :-)

My program is working similar like NetBlitz for example, but with full bughouse chess support, so its multiplayer bughouse chess game which allows to play bughouse over internet or (local) network. You can try on single computer also if you will run 1x as server and 2x or 3-4x like client. It allows to sit to virtual chessboard table and play chess on one board or bughouse on both for 2 (bughouse simul) to 4 players. And the most important is that its first try to solve lag problems in bughouse and to log all bughouse chess game info. So idea is have better possibility to play with friends bughouse and be independed on FICS which not logs lags and which have this way very poor tools to be easy for arbiter to assist in bughouse chess game - for example on FICS is game logged like to partial PGN games without lags, so is very hard for potentional arbiter make any decision based on doublechess position + time + lags. And my software have inplemented my idea how to solve it. Its not in 0.42 still 100% perfect, but playable already I think. The motivation for me was to try and show way how to play bughouse over internet with comfort similar like in standard chess, where lag only slowing the game but not damages it totally. Also very important was my idea to have virtual space for training OTB bughouse chess, so in NetGame is possible to make illegal move by let king in check, what is often mistake made by chessplayers that not playing over the real board often, so idea was to have some fine virtual OTB like bughouse chess environment.

Alamar founded bug, that if BughouseLagcompensator is ON (what means the sum of actuals times in every moment on both clocks are the same like OTB and lag only slowing the game, but You can still think that if You are 5 sec up and You sitting its clear how much moves is opponent on partners board and partner able make - its what making bughouse lag compensator - no lag waves has influences on game, only slowing the game, but not damages it): on clients is time showed OK (using [T:][L:] section in BPGN), but on server and in {time} section of BPGN is showed bad time not including lag compensator function. So all clients see the valid times with lag compensator, but on server and in BPGN its now bad.
Will be repaired soon, to be even in BPGN and on server showing the same :-)

First Beta version 1.00 released:
Thin Server/Client version of DCBN.
Completely rewrited graphic management, now You can select any pieces and any size. You can use BugStuff pieces bitmaps graphic which using Thief or BPGNView.

http://web.sten.cz/2x64/holandany/DCB/DCBN1Beta01i.exe

And implemented first try to play bughouse on single PC :
Allows now play bughouse chess with and against xboard engines.


PS. It working, if any problem try run all again.
PS2: Best way is to run DCBN 3x: 1x as server 1x as client and select Sjengs as for example WhiteA,BlackA,WhiteB and 1x as client for You where You can play as BlackB. If You will use only
1x server + 1x client and on client will be all 4 players joined, then here is little unpleasant bug in present : breaking mouse move when on partners board opponent play, so u have to start move again by clicking on start square and then target and finish faster than opp of your pard will move. If You are 1 on client or 2x as team (or simul) this bug is not here.

Of course if You have more PC, You can use all :-)

Try play bronstein 1 minute + 3 sec per move and have 1 minute on the clocks still in the moment of win.
This is first try, but is always funny for peoples that wish training but dont have inet in home.

And the improved graphics I hope can allow now to try play bronstein 3sec sometimes on internet ...

Players Voices added :
Added new feature that making DoubleChessBoard more close to chess over the real table: Players voices. Optional different voices of player, his partner, opponent, second opponent, observer or in general per name of logged player. Now You can listen all players voice similar way like if You playing over the real board. For example if will be logged in netgame Sandokanom, then are used \PlayersVoice\Sandokanom\*.WAV files ... But if You can You can use also voices from installed Thief (fics client), only simply select directory Thief\WAVE which contains voice WAV files, DCBN understand for example not only exactly "+P.WAV" but also Thief synonym "PGOOD.WAV".

Also i added more font,color and some size options.

Well are not perfect, but half of it could be enough for playing bug. It depends on partner of course :-)
PS. Maybe I will do it in the future editable, but i am not able to do something so big like thief.
You can send me list of buttons You prefer also, it could help me in future.

PS. vawes files works universal, so if will sent to pard for example "Only grishezz will win.wav" and then to chat window say this, everybody will listen it who has that wav file in directory of PlayersVoice he using.

Lag
In versions newest that DCBN 0.51
found that lag per move is increased by client by about 500ms when sound is turned on.
In bronstein time controll 3 sec per move or if all using sound, its not problem, but if u wish have lag only 20-60ms (it making lag also on 1 PC with server and 2 clients, if sound on on server, all clients lagging this way) instead of 600 (tested on WinXP) so turn please sound of or use version DCBN 0.51 where is only move sound and has not this problem.

I will try solve it in next release.

One button that Thief failed to use(and should have) in its default button layout is the 'Nevermind' ptell...I can't recall how many games I'm searching for the Nevermind key and have to settle on 'ok now' so you might include this in your interface. Also those colors really could use some work...When i stared away from the monitor I think i developed sunspots in my vision.

Ok, i will add "Nevermind".
Re colors: the only colors i could change are maybe pieces (maybe using chess font with color), all other colors are customizable (including window and chat window), i made several predefined profiles, so try some or make new which u like, and send it to me (or add .ini profile file here) i will add it into next release.
Btw. the lag i wrote about is made the way that sound time is calculated like lag, what is not as bad, but i already repaired it, so lag will be exactly the lag only. Until this moment i calculated into lag also all what happened before opps move was made on board, what did seems fair, but will be better to calc lag like time losed on the way only.

DoubleChessBoard 1.00 finally released

You can download it on
http://web.sten.cz/2x64/holandany/DCB/
http://bughousechess.wz.cz/DCB/

PS. All 3 subwindow are now dynamic way joined to one application and i made some improvements.
Also Nevermind button added, but I had no time to add sound for it, so now if somebody telling Nevermind, You will listen default "Hey" instead :-) I will add it later. Or of course simply copy it from Thief, but this way You will not have different voices for different players.
Lags should be now very small, the client processing of incoming messages from server are now not counted as part of lag.
This version is tested most on WindowsXP. I Repaired the bug that RTF automatic BPGN didnt make diagrams in bughouse chess font under WinXP, Now should it work on both Win98 and WinXP.
Improved replaying games from BPGN (best on energy board :-) ) - now You see Players and ratings. Added register bpgn files such way that now You can use simply great BPGNView3 and my energyboard view together (right click menu on file). Added posibility of analyse 1 board position with pieces in hand. PS. this has bug when rooks in hand and is possible castling, otherwise it works fine seems. Added some graphic and profile. More some day in next release if will be :-)

In release 1.00 found bug:
Register BPGN files making in registers DCB.exe %1 instead of "%1", so files like "D:\mydirectory\x\y.bpgn" are opened ok, but "C:\my directory\x\y.bpgn" are not open, and only DCB opens. This was very unpleasant for viewing with DCB fast (in DCB is possible scroll in the game when seeking some pos very fast, not many clicks needed) some position from game from JB's database. In 1.00.1 release its repaired.
PS. for quick view is DCB good, for analysing game is better BPGNView3.

Now is 1.00.1 on the webs. Who has 1.00 can download only light version and reinstall (its copy installer) the existing files.

New version is here:
DoubleChessBoard - alternative chess mini server for blitz and bughouse chess v. 1.10 released.
Blitz & bughouse chess mini server
Main thema of 1.10 version is big improvement of graphic, now is improved, very customizable and support using of any chess font
(which can be downloaded for example from:
http://www.chessvariants.com/d.font/index.html
http://www.enpassant.dk/chess/fonteng.htm
). Was improved many graphic pieces that was included in previous versions of DoubleChessBoard and added several totally new, including the main one.

Also was made some little improvements in other functionalities, but biger changes in this will come in some next release.

I hope now graphic board looks much better and not worse than Thief for example. So everybody can enjoy training bughouse with computer engines on Single PC, or (what is most important) to play with friends blitz bughouse chess thru internet or local network game peer to peer.

Little bug found, well it is not exactly bug, but could be little mazy for somebody:
badly set the default font for stuff numbers.
It will be repaired soon,
for this moment if You dont see number of pieces in stuff, simply change the font.

Stuff number font

Its curiosity that this custom options is exactly one which for Example Thief dont support :-)

hi, all, friend found some little bug in coordinates, its funny that me and alamar nobody discovered that on second board when coordinates are ON, its reverse. Heh well its shows that sometimes when somebody has something in memory dont ead it. This simple bug will be fixed soon, and probably will be added some little improvements together with it :-)
Well the version on web is free and I think this little bug is not as important, still this version is damn big improved comparing to previous!

In today early package i released on web the directory BPGN missed, what has no influence on functionality, the default documents is offered instead to save/open BPGN games. Now its OK. So who downloaded full self-extract installer, can download only light version now, which will reinstall and add BPGN directory structure with some interresting games.

DoubleChessBoard 1.22 Released:
Fixed bug that was not possible connect to other server than localhost (what was brutal but very easy fixed bug). Also improved BPGN View that now can read times from new format with tenths of seconds 999.999. (Of course I dont wish programming BPGNView database, but is pleasant to have this for quick bpgn view)

Who downloaded previous version,
can simply download 1.22 Light Package and copy all files from 1.22 over full 1.20 amd all will be OK.
