Re: New engine "Roc"

think it is line 46:

template<class F_, typename... Args_> int TBProbe(F_ func, bool me, const Args_&&... args)

with the error "too few arguments to call" in line 58:

(me == White), std::forward<Args_>(args)...);

Re: Gull 3 Linux+Syzygy and Fathom released.

No we have missed the boat for stage 2. Maybe stage 3, or the super final :-) I still do not have a suitable Windows machine for BMI builds. I will try to do a working BMI2 + PGO compile with mingw gcc version 5.4.0 (Rev1, Built by MSYS2 project) would you like your last 2 Fathom patches "Fix en pa...

Re: Gull 3.0 Syzygy in GitHub

does it count the number of pieces on the board? wonder because pcs can be >1 ...
and what is enc_type = 0, 1, 2 then leading to?

of course enc_type = 1 will not happen ...

but e.g. KQQQQvK leaves with
(j == 2) ptr->enc_type = 2;

or KQQQvKQ with
if (j >= 3) ptr->enc_type = 0;

is that intended?

Re: Gull 3.0 Syzygy in GitHub

Ronald, I'm thinking about what j is counting in your tbcore.c starting at line 238 } else { struct TBEntry_piece *ptr = (struct TBEntry_piece *)entry; for (i = 0, j = 0; i < 16; i++) if (pcs == 1) j++; if (j >= 3) ptr->enc_type = 0; else if (j == 2) ptr->enc_type = 2; else { /* only for suicide */ ...
