Re: Francesca MAD 0.25 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Thanks so much for running the gauntlet.

I'm struggling to make progress now. Probably need to look at the eval as that isn't very good..

Cheers,
Tom

Great tournament, thanks to all whose engines participated, and especially for Graham for running the whole piece.

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. I'm going to do that next time when Francesca plays. Cool.. thanks. Think the issue is something to do with mate scores in t...

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.

Bruce was/is a real gent, and one of those people who you think 'wow, he's figured everything out 100x better t...
