Re: Slow Chess Blitz Classic

Also not sure why not finding opening book with arena, that means probably not finding bitbases either. Expects working directory same as exe, and sub-directories same as in the .zip with bitbases and openingBook. Thanks for the hint, Jon. The problem was indeed that I did not keep the directory st...

Re: Slow Chess Blitz Classic

For UCI support I tested using Arena, unfortunately don't have the Shredder or Fritz GUI to test, but can find some other UCI tests. Otherwise I used Winboard for any regular testing, but probably every engine is UCI now. If any more issues let me know can look into them tonight too. Under Arena in...

Re: Slow Chess Blitz Classic

First tests. Shredder 13 recognizes the engine and properly identifies its name as SlowChess Blitz Classic 1.4. When playing, only displays move upon execution, no PV. The engine does not install under Fritz 15 (engine name row remains empty). Had to edit its .eng file manually to make it recognize ...

Pure A/B Engines seem to be out.
I am never going to spend hundreds of euros for a graphic card and cooling and electricity bills just to be able to run NN engines.

Re: New engine releases 2019

I am also aware that FabChess blunders every other endgame. I sadly do not know the cause because everytime a clean search does not blunder on the exact moves. Hopefully in future updates with EGTB the problem will be more insignificant (although this will not fix the root of the problem). It may b...

There was a lot of refactoring, and several bugs were fixed.
This version is tactically much stronger than v_0.39.
Overall, I expect a +60 Elo.
Great! I am looking forward to testing it as soon as I can (which is very soon).

Re: New engine releases 2019

I should have read more closely - CrazyAra, as indicated by the name, plays Crazyhouse. I don't see anything for orthodox chess. Sorry if I wasted anyone's time by not mentioning this. Still, it does look like an interesting project. I was testing out Jacksprat against AdaChess 3.6 and Tony's Chess...
