I am looking for another solution.
I downloaded a compiler here and could compile Dumb 1.6.

Hi Roland,
If you have snapd installed on your Linux distro, you can install the D compiler with

Code: Select all

sudo snap install ldc2 --classic
Hi Morgan. Thank you for your answer. But, unfortunately, snapd doesn't seem to be available on my distro (Mageia). I am looking for another solution.

Re: New engine: paulchen332

May I ask which gcc version you are compiling with? This looks like a manifestation of this bug , which erroneously caused class members to be inaccessible in noexcept declarations. As such I assume your version is <=8? Thank you for your answer. Indeed, it's gcc version 8. [roland@localhost paulch...

Re: OpenCritter compiled for Linux with Free Pascal

The engine works more or less but there are some issues that I am not able to fix for now, because there are many things in the program that I don't understand. For example, I didn't know until today what is a "null move". :)

I created a git repository: Open Critter

Contributions are welcome.

Re: OpenCritter compiled for Linux with Free Pascal

By the way, I tested the program in Chess960 mode: it doesn't work. I am trying to find what is wrong. There was an error in the FEN parser. It is fixed now. But there is another problem: after a castling from the opponent, the engine plays illegal move. I must take the time to review everything re...

Thanks for this, I have not tried it out yet, but was wandering whether OpenCritter could be the strongest open-source chess engine in Pascal?
Yes, I believe. Booot is also very strong (but works only on Windows).
