Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

@Ferd I get the first perft all correct. The second one is wrong after and including perft(3) The third one I miss it all. I thought you can gate whether the Knight becomes pinned or not. Is there a complete list of all the rules of musketeer chess ? The official webpage I am sure does not have thi...

Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

@Ferdy Thanks, I now understand how the piece selection rules work @HG My implementation was rather limited because I assumed that the fairy pieces are already in play. I did not even implement how they get into play properly. It is my understanding that ranks 0 and 9 are "water" and can not be mov...

Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

I think that what Daniel meant is that if b1 gets attacked, and your Cannon is at b0, you would not gain anything by playing Nc3 without gating the Cannon, (even if that was allowed, which I think it isn't), as this would surely make you lose the Cannon without compensation, as it could never be ga...

Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

Also, I am not sure I understand the negotiation rules. It has 2 initial game phases in order. 1. PS (piece selection) phase 2. GP (gating preparation) phase. Starting position used by Jocly (an internet server, was down still down). See image 1. image 1 https://camo.githubusercontent.com/a2daf9eb7...

Re: Engines playing Musketeer Chess, good price

Oh, I had completely forgotten that KingSlayer uses the same flag in the move encoding for indicating castling and double-pushing, and the moves have to be distinguished by testing the type of the moved piece. So the code I added to print a gating suffix when something is left on a1/h1 after castli...

Re: First knight odds match with IM Saturday

Fourth game similar problem. Komodo allowed Ray to reach rook and two pawns vs rook because it was a TB draw, but once there it just refused to move and timed out. No draw offer involved, so it's clearly related to TB, and it doesn't seem to happen on my own pc, just on chess.com. Anyway official s...
