Re: New engine "Roc"

I looked at the CppCheck messages. They are from the tuner code, which is not updated (I have never successfully run the Gull tuner). I will remove the tuner code. I agree refactoring is needed if Roc is to become an active multi-developer project. That is not a problem I currently have, unfortunate...

Re: New engine "Roc"

Basil's LazyGull and Michael Byrne's Hawkeye both address this problem. I would also welcome such a contribution to Roc, but I don't have the proper skills.

Re: New engine "Roc"

That's very kind, thank you. If you let me know when you're starting, I'll release the latest code at that time.

Re: New engine "Roc"

Roc 0.6 is now released. I have made some changes which should make the play somewhat less similar to Gull's, and also hopefully will stabilize the HNI build for Dmitri.

Re: New engine "Roc"

I would be grateful for that. Dmitry is using the HNI version and experiencing crashes. So I suspect it is unsound.

Re: New engine "Roc"

Thanks, Adam. There seems to be now a range of measurements of Roc's improvement, with yours near the middle.

Were you using the HNI build? I'm trying to get a handle on the two crash reports, and one hypothesis is that my crude Windows port of Fathom is incompatible with the HNI build.

Re: New engine "Roc"

2046 games? Is this some Cryptonomicon-like meaningful number?

Looking forward to the result, anyway.
