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: List of bugfree, opensource Linux and MacOSX engines

@hgm, OliverBr Thank you for the informations. Are you doing this on Windows or Linux? Only the Windows compile should expect the fmax.ini in the current directory; in Linux it expects it in /usr/local/share/games/fairymax/ . So perhaps it is using a different fmax.ini, with incompatible piece namin...

Do you have the entire game?
Here is another game (PGN attached).

Maybe I did something wrong when compiling Fairy-Max? I copied fmax.ini in the directory of the executable. I didn't install Fairy-Max. (I prefer to keep all the programs that I compiled myself in my own directories.)

Re: List of bugfree, opensource Linux and MacOSX engines

I don't see how this could ever omit the promotion suffix. Even if the piecename[] table is not properly initialized (which depends on the variant definition in the fmax.ini file) it should print something. Thank you for your detailed answer. No, I didn't keep the game. I will make other tests, and...

Hippocampe 0.4.2.0.1 (updated)

Hello! I fixed the name issue for Hippocampe, and the issue of the missing promotion suffix. IIRC there is also a problem of illegal castling move (I am not sure, but I believe that the program doesn't check that the castling is not under attack): I will try to fix it later. Hi! The addition with t...

Re: List of bugfree, opensource Linux and MacOSX engines

I have just pushed a new patch for Fairy-Max to my on-line repository. This should rigorously prevent any time losses, as it now will abort the search whenever it runs out of time. I set this 'cold-turkey timeout' at 3 times the nominal move time, which is now calculated as timeLeft/(movesLeft+2). ...

Re: List of bugfree, opensource Linux and MacOSX engines

And there is a list of 26 candidates, quite interesting engines, which do compile on both Linux and MacOSX and are stable, but have some flaws, which should be repaired easily. hippocampe xboard* -2150 0.4.2 http://www.computer-chess.org/lib/exe/fetch.php?media=computer_chess:wiki:download:hippocam...

I get some annoying messages with cutechess-cli:
I will probably not teach you something, but here is what I put at the end of my command line for cutechess-cli. It solves the problem of the annoying messages:

Code: Select all

 2>> error.log
and even better:

Code: Select all

 2>> error.log | tee tournament.log
