Re: 64-bit Windows compile wanted

Nice to hear that it is working fine. Although at the moment it is the strongest Shatranj engine, I do not plan to do official releases for this project because I basically stopped development on it one year ago and its source is still based on Stockfish 8, whereas its successor Fairy-Stockfish is k...

Re: Capablanca Random Chess engines.

The only CRC engines I know that you did not mention are Sjaak II and NebiyuChess. Those two I actually tested against Fairy-Stockfish during its development, mostly because I can use them for testing in many variants. You can find the estimated Elo differences for Capablanca chess (from some matche...

Re: Imortal v4: Executable

Regarding the performance under wine, for comparison I cross-compiled Stockfish for Windows under Ubuntu and then ran it with wine. On my hardware, NPS is around 10-15% lower than for a native linux compile of the same Stockfish version. For Imortal 2 I get around 500kN/s on one thread using wine.

Re: Is there a program to build opening books based on engin

I would like to extend it to be able to generate PGNs, which should make it easier to convert them to other opening book formats, but that would require a variant-agnostic SAN converter. Reporting coordinate notation would be easier to add, but I do not know whether that is as useful as PGN output....

Re: Is there a program to build opening books based on engin

Probably with multi-pv. This hypothetical program would need to use multi-pv and then carve out only those moves within a delta of the best move. This is an idea I'm interested in pursuing as well for chess variants where no opening books exist. Problem is that engines aren't very good at playing o...

Re: 2nd Crazyhouse Computer Championships 2017

It will be interesting to see whether CrazyWa can challenge the top 3 seeds of the candidates. Do you have a new version of Imortal for the tournament? For the final, I would suggest to use the last release https://github.com/niklasf/Stockfish/releases/tag/fishnet-071017 of Stockfish that is used fo...

Re: Arena GUI and rules infraction by P4wn Chess - JSUCI

I noticed that some UCI engines (notably Seirawn-Stockfish) simply ignore illegal moves in their 'position' command. If the latest move then is illegal, they start thinking about it themselves, and make a replacement move. If there somehow is a move parsing bug that considers promotions illegal, th...

Re: 250 ELO in ~ 10 months

I have difficulties starting the worker. I've made .bat file but it doesn't start properly. Can i use the same username for fishtest variant? Is is difficult teaching SF another variant? I wish Stockfish can play Two Kings variant. https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/jocly-community/B2cgrMnm7a8...
