While I am not into SF level play and always have preferred to play one of the hundreds of available chess programs at full strength (or plain Humans OTB and on chess servers), I guess some folks here will find your ela...

Re: Ferret 1.00 v258 - program from 1995

I was a big fan of Ferret back in the early days of computer chess. Even further back, I directed chess tournaments in the northwest US. As I was cataloging my games a few years ago I was surprised to see a familiar name: I apparently played Bruce in a "bye game" at a tournament I directed, long be...

Re: Ferret 1.00 v258 - program from 1995

I'm not aware of any version of Ferret ever being released, commercially or otherwise. As far as I can remember Bruce kept Ferret private. Steve Bruce Moreland also wrote a WB-compatible engine, Gerbil : http://rwbc-chess.de/download.htm Has anyone tried it? CL Looks like a book download only. I no...

But why only "WhiteElo "2324" ?? H6.03 has over 3400 ELO
All players start in all tc classes and variations at 1500.

Re: A complete 2000 lines of code engine

From watching a few dozens of games inbetween I can say that Rybka just relentlessly tries to create an unstoppable passer and succeeds quite often in this vs. Minic. Very good hint ! Maybe I should add some code for candidates. Passer is already there, and quite tuned. There is an addition bonus f...

(games are available in the unlikely case someone wants them, despite the tc and hardware) Minic076_Test R...

But it does not analyze either, after starting WB analyze mode it just sits there and does nothing?

Re: Swiss Tournament Ed.VIII. Group A.
