Re: Antique chess programs

Have you looked at the Internet Archive ( https://archive.org/index.php )? It has a couple hundred chess programs already. Nope, because I haven't worked on the project since 2009 or so when Mr. Marsland recovered the source to his AWIT chess program. The programs I was focusing on back then were t...

Re: Antique chess programs

I still feel like there was more what I'm posting. Stuff that wasn't ready to release or stuff that the author shared but didn't want me to post. (Oh expletive... I better check that for that ASAP! My memory is so bad that if I didn't make note of it, there's no way I'll remember now!) Thank you, C...

Re: Antique chess programs

Okay, here is the dropbox link for the OCR source for Blitz and two versions of CrayBlitz. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/108711463/Blitz.7z I'll leave the link active for a week or so. I think those two links have all that I have handy. I was concentrating on the oldest programs from the 60s a...

Re: Antique chess programs

I've gathered the OCR'ed source for CrayBlitz 43g, 47a, and the CAL for 43c, as well as Blitz 69. I'm also going to include the scans for those printouts. Thanks to the TIF image format, they are much smaller than the PNG or JPG that I had used. Didn't even remember doing TIF but I guess I was plann...

Re: Antique chess programs

your museum on web archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20071221115817/http://classicchess.googlepages.com/Chess.htm That, I think, is the one I put up on drop box. However, I had a newer one that included Awit and BLitz & CrayBlitz source and some more notes. I didn't upload that one because .... I...

Re: Antique chess programs

Well, it looks like the archive that I thought was the final version of my antique / classic chess program website wasn't actually the last one. Oh well. It doesn't have Awit or Blitz & CrayBlitz source. Those can be added by others though. (I notice that Mr. Marsland has released more of his chess ...

Re: Bitboard efficiency

Bitboard efficiency In terms of calculations per unit energy, a program which spends a significant portion of its time with 64 bit calculations cannot be run efficiently on 32 bit hardware compared to 64 bit hardware. This is true at least with current hardware offerings. The quad core 32 bit Raspb...

Re: Antique chess programs

Hi Carey, cpw would be proud to host some of your stuff if it doesn't exceed say 400 MB (We have 744.0 MB currently available of 2 GB). Best Regards, Gerd Gerd, I checked into the CPW site a few years ago when I realized I was having trouble getting the energy to work on my project and that all my ...

Re: Antique chess programs

Hyatt would be the right choice, because he is a long time chess programmer and he's a part of our chess programming history. Still I can simply put all of your backups on my site, where anybody can download it and continue keeping your works alive. As said by Bob, having multiple copies online is ...
