Thanks! I understand Maybe fun to get something running.
I've put up the source-code at https://github.com/flok99/waxx if someone wants to add authentication or maybe run a server at home.

Re: Ataxx

What does the protocol looks like? If somebody want's to play he needs more information than the connection details alone. Oops indeed. The protocol is UAI which is the same as UCI with only a couple of minor changes. I quote from www.ataxx.org: UAI Usually Ataxx programs use the UAI protocol. UAI ...

Re: Ataxx

It is a piece of cake to change my old Othello/Reversi program in such a way that it can play Ataxx. I don't know how difficult it is to let the Chess-server I just put up recognize something like Ataxx. HG is the only one with experience in adding variants to the server. Did a quick hack: now some...

Re: Ataxx

That could be entertaining. But first there would need to be some server to connect to for playing the game. Anyone working on that? My first glance at it, I thought it would be a trivial game to solve, since the board is only 7x7, and it generally has less than 40 moves possible . But the frequenc...

Ataxx

Hi, Slightly off-topic but I'm hoping there are chess-lovers out there who may be interested. Ataxx has been around for a while. Strangely enough there was no real community around it for developing an AI like the Chess and Go games have. There have been plenty of GUI implementations of it, but no m...

Re: kiwipete perft position

Hi hi hi my class ChessPiece still exists but only containing constants and static methods now. Took three years to get there. Can you imagine how many bugs and time I would have saved when I would have taken the right design decision from start. So for beginners who do object oriented programming:...

Re: trying to understand mcts

One further question: do I need to recreate the tree for every move? Or can I just cut out the current branch and use that as the new base for the next move?

The server is reachable at 'nightmare-chess.nl' port 5000, I setup sendmail as well, so 'mailoldmoves' and 'mailstored' should work. It is running on a tiny computer, I have no idea about how many concurrent users it can handle.
Currently 0 as it is not reachable ;-)

Re: Basic endgames

Seems to me that a static evaluation that returns 0 when you are a Rook ahead must be badly broken... I think I ran it without its tune.dat :oops: folkert@msi:~/Projects/git/Micah$ ./Micah Applying value 45 to key 'tune_bishop_count' Applying value 7 to key 'tune_too_many_pawns' Applying value -4 t...
