popeye and transmuted kings


Can somebody of the experts explain to me the difference between the condition 'TransmutedKings' and the combination of the conditions 'WhiteTransmutedKing BlackTransmutedKing'?

Example:
pieces
white kh1 pb6
black ka8
cond TransmutedKings
stip #1

gives 1.b6-b7 # ! as the solution, while

pieces
white kh1 pb6
black ka8
cond WhiteTransmutedKing BlackTransmutedKing
stip #1

finds no solution.

Thanks,

mario

Both Popeye 4.47 and the development version 4.48 solve this correctly. So which version of Popeye are you using?

I have used pywin32.exe (File properties: date=07. June 2008, time=17:05, size=323584), the version info given, when running the program: Popeye Windows-32Bit v4.47 (250396 KB)
OS used: WinXP

Hmm, the Linux version of 4.47 solves this. The CVS Win32 version on http://sanguis.xs4all.nl/popeye/ solves this correctly too. So there seems to be something wrong with the build for Win32 4.47.

Joost, my linux build has the same issue as Mario's:

Hmm, strange. I just rebuilt and tested 4.47 again, and now it didn't find it either. So perhaps I started 4.48 when testing 4.47...

Anyway, this bug is fixed in 4.48:

Popeye Linux-2.6.27.7-134.fc10.i686.PAE-i686-32Bit v4.48 (2048 KB)
