Roland, I downloaded Alouette 0.0.9 and there are 2 binaries inside the zip file, alouette64 and random64. What is random64, a random mover? So kind of the same engine without eval?
Thank you for your question. Yes, the engine named random64 is a pure random mover, based on Alouette code.

Re: Sapeli 1.0 - New chess engine

My bad. :oops: Fixed. My main preoccupation wasn't relative to the spelling of my name, but to the many packages including the same files. As I provide to you an updated ZIP archive with all the versions, it doesn't seem useful to keep the previous versions of the package. But, of course, it's up t...

Re: New engine releases 2020

Slow Chess Blitz Classic 1.8 is now available : https://www.3dkingdoms.com/chess/slow.htm Good news! I hadn't noticed the release of v1.7. - Did a code cleanup pass to prepare for multi-threading and code portability. Maybe version 1.9 will support multi-threaded search. For me, I would like to hav...

Re: Sapeli 1.0 - New chess engine

Thanks for the builds! Added them here: https://github.com/SamuraiDangyo/Sapeli/tree/binaries/bin You're welcome. Maybe you could make some cleaning in your bin directory (that is, delete the previous versions of my package)? And by the way, it isn't really important, but my first name is Roland, a...

Re: Sapeli 1.0 - New chess engine

Hello! I updated my "all versions" package (for Windows), after I found a way to build without dependency to cygwin1.dll . The package include 32 bits binaries, so maybe it can be useful to someone, in addition to the binaries offered by Günther. I started from v1.17, since I couldn't compile the pr...

Re: Engine update - belofte 0.9.6 released

Before getting to version 1.0, I want to include a 32 or 64 bit windows version that works correctly. If someone manages to compile the 0.9.6 release on windows, this would be great. I did not manage to compile it yet. The combination of C and C++ seems to create some issues for my c++ builder comp...

Windows 64 bit binaries of version 0.9.3 pushed to source repository. Windows 32 bit binaries in the making, but not available yet. Hello! Thank you for binaries.

Re: Luciole (UCI engine written in Lua)

Hello! I would like to share with you the 2020 version of the Lua script that I use to start CuteChess Cli. I am very glad of it. Sometimes you are glad for a little thing. :) The difference with the first version is that the script reads engines.json and picks N random engines. Another difference i...
