Re: Sting SF 17

One very important tip (advice) for users of Sting 17. Now PLY_MAX is only 100 moves. It means that Sting is ablae to display the solution (PV-line) only of 100 moves, maximally. Of course, Sting is able to find a mate with much more than 100 moves. Once it was: "mate in 92" (184 moves). And then (...

Re: Sting SF 17

If Sting does not load in Chessbase/Fritz GUI Sting is no longer important for me and other users. :( This is sad to read it. All my tough work can be disqualified by the abnormal work of some GUI. I think to change the name Sting to Buran. :lol: Oh my god, what stubbornness. If you don't change th...

Re: Sting SF 17

Now, we may go to the essence of the version 17. I added a code to solve special (very long solution) puzzles. Engines, as a rule, are not able to do it by searching. But here (Sting 17) is possibility to try to do it by auto-playing (maybe it would be better: self-playing ???). If you click Sting-...

Re: Sting SF 17

BTW. "<>" It is not my bug! Well, I would say it is indeed your bug! ;) The problem is, that ChessBase creates a file *.eng with the name of the engine, and the characters <> are not allowed in filenames, because they are used for input/output redirection in the OS. So it's not a good idea to use t...

Re: Sting SF 17

A wonderful news! "The" Chessbase ignores Sting 17! I recommend to start Sting directly in "Windows Command Line" I will prepare the guide and it is very easy to start Sting there. :D :D :D Earlier it was: Sting X based on Stockfish 2.1.1 by Y. It seems to be wrong. Y is not an author of Stockfish ...
