Re: Open Source Blitz Rating List: Sloppy

Well, that's quite strange. Without more context for the error it's hard to tell what happened on your system.

Re: Open Source Blitz Rating List: Sloppy

I agree about older versions of Scorpio, but the latest from his git repository (2.7) is finally stronger than 2.0 and also more stable. I still had to hack its move formatting to get cutechess-cli to understand it though. For a start his code doesn't compile... How are you building it? The errors ...

Re: StockFish code (piece values) in centipawns?

It is very interesting... what are these values in centipawns? The values are based on a "pawn unit" being 0x100 (decimal 256), see below. If you wish to compare them to displayed scores, PawnValueMidgame = 100 cp. Also, if you run SF directly you can use the "eval" command to see a breakdown of ev...

Re: Windows GCC Development

MinGW is nice for building native Windows executables. If that's your main goal, you can actually set it up as a cross-compiler on Linux (the easiest method depends on your distro) and build with, say, CC=i686-pc-mingw32-gcc CXX=i686-pc-mingw32-g++.

Re: Linux

Sleep() is a Windows API function that sleeps a specified number of milliseconds. On Linux you can call nanosleep() instead. For instance, the msleep function at the end of this page implements Sleep(). You should include <time.h> instead of <windows.h>.

Re: Stockfish-2.2.1 Bench Signature Oddity

I might be able to test endian issues (and I've fixed plenty of them in the past). I have an emulated Linux/PowerPC setup for testing. (It runs under QEMU). The bigendian-32 build does not crash during a bench command, and in the latest git version has a bench signature of 5447426, same as x86-64-mo...
