Could you share a Linux binary or source to compile?

Regards,
The source code is in Java. If you send me your email by pm I will send you one source code. If you are able to compile a workable Linux binary then we will go from there.

Moved "40H" tools/utilities to a new URL

Moved the "40H Chess Tools and Utilities" links page (a/k/a "Norm's Chess Downloads") to a new URL: 40h.000webhostapp.com Unfortunately the previous host suddenly stopped providing service without warning or explanation. I tried several times and ways to contact them but I could not get a response. ...

Re: Ordo question

With regard to name normalization, I have 3 tools that might help. "nameChange" takes a text file of old name followed by new name and outputs a new file with the name changes. "nameList" which can optionally give a list of names in all caps which can be compared to a default list. If there is a dif...

Arasan's "loss" of 0.5 points almost caused it to lose 22nd place in the tcec-9 Rapid. Fortunately, it had the S-B tiebreaker. Trivial yes, but consider the "adjudication bug" in tcec-9 could have caused an engine not to advance to the next round, or the wrong engine to become champion. Name Games :...

Re: Cursed win at TCEC

Missed that because I assumed all games were in the general download for tcec_9. Apparently rapid games were not included.

Re: Cursed win at TCEC

And now to start some forensic analysis to see if the "cursed win" happened in other tcec-9 games. I have extracted the 21 games with TB adjudications resulting in a win. 126 of the 804 games had TB adjudications, and 21 of the 126 ended in a win.

It was actually bayeselo where Mike created a new version. This may be legit since it was on github. But it is similar to what was done with SF.
