Re: Francesca 0.25 Released

I hate issues like this. Can't reproduce the problem.. don't suppose there's a debug log from this game is there? Maybe mistakenly, I do not normally switch on debug logging.

Re: Francesca 0.25 Released

I am wondering if it's hash table related. I try not to store mate scores in the hash table, but on inspection, certain (deeper) mate scores are being stored. Maybe this is the issue.. not sure.

Re: Francesca 0.25 Released

New version, available from www.silentshark.co.uk From the README file.. Bugfix when using external book - could mess up castling status in a specific situation, meaning sometimes Francesca wouldn't think she could castle, when she could. Nasty.
