Re: Stockfish developmental progess on pause?

Stockfish developmental progress is tested at https://nextchessmove.com/dev-builds Each change is tested against Stockfish 7 in a trial of 20,000 random games. The randomness leaves room for variation. However, in the last 15 trials covering the last 15 changes, the Elo differential above Stockfish...

Re: List of bugfree, opensource Linux and MacOSX engines

I might indeed have never released a binary myself. I did officially release a derivative that plays Chess with Different Armies (KingSlayer-CwDA), though: http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=73801&p=841924 . It also can play orthodox Chess (as FIDE is one of the implemented armies). La...

Re: Hippocampe 0.4.2.0.1 (updated)

Would you mind to add my WIN compile of Hippocampe in your current or future download place too? I don't think it would make sense to make it available at my download site, when you did the code changes and already have other OS compiles. They shouldn't be splattered over various download sites. Th...

Re: List of bugfree, opensource Linux and MacOSX engines

You were actually present at its inception. Originally I wanted to call the engine 'Simple', but you pointed out that this name was already taken. The project was triggered by this challenge posed by Henk on August 8, 2015: Do you think you could write a super simple engine that beats Fairy-Max eas...

Re: List of bugfree, opensource Linux and MacOSX engines

I pushed a patch to my on-line repository for KingSlayer, which should fix the promotion issue. It turned out this was 'reproducibly broken'; KingSlayer would never be able to make his own moves after getting a promotion move as input. Apparently I had broken the code when implementing under-promot...

Re: Hippocampe 0.4.2.0.1 (updated)

Congratulations, it looks as you actually have fixed the castling issue. The linux executable you provide in your link is running now against OliPow 2.2.3 and there are no issues until now. Good! Thank you for the confirmation. 3) Sometimes, I am having problems interrupting cutechess-cli when hipp...

Re: Monchester 1.0 @ Lichess

Monchester 1.0 is now playing at lichess bot account: https://lichess.org/@/monchester -- hopefully it stays up to do so, the console messages were appropriately (not too) scary when I left it on the server, go and tickle to see if Monchester still lives :) Nice! Will it play rated too sometimes? I...

Re: Seer

... When installing ChessGUI sends a stop after it has gathered all options and Seer reacts with bestmove h1h1 and then it crashes after ChessGUI sends quit. I could replicate this behaviour from Seer in cmd. 0.000: - Starting server: seer111-64.exe 0.031: - Priority class set to normal 0.047: - Th...

Re: N.E.G. 1.0 released

@H.G.Muller Thank you for the new version of NEG. (May we call it NEG 1.4?) I take the occasion to share a logo that I made for NEG. (I don't remember to have seen a logo for this engine.) logo.zip It's already different to 1.3, this is sufficient for me. I will make a windows compile. else if(!str...

Re: Seer

Your problem seems to be fixed though with current dev version: I played a test game Seer vs. Seer and the option (which has a now a default value) is sent and it plays with the Weights file! I could upload my dev version here for verifying for yourself. It has save.bin set to default by me now. So ...
