That was because those UCI options had been deleted in the
Stockfish version you had. They won't come back. The GUI authors
hadn't updated their GUI to reflect the changes. Therefore, they
just sent some empty UCI request which Stockfish didn't understand.
Tord's Stockfish, SmallFish and Droidfish all failed to update for
the changes so far.
I'm not talking about Stockfish parameters specifically. There
was a recent Droidfish update that supposedly allowed changing of
UCI parameters for all engines that you added to Droidfish. So I'm
talking about parameters that exist for Firenzina, Rhetoric, Black
Mamba, Critter, among many other Android engines.
Droidfish has a new option under Manage Chess Engines to set UCI
parameters for the selected engine and displays all the parameters
in a menu for you to change. It is these changes that I'm saying
seem to have no effect.
