Re: Texel 1.07

Unfortunately I don't see a way to add a batch file as engine in Aquarium. Perhaps some of the other members can pinpoint a way for me. I've installed MS-MPI 8.1 on both hosts (rita and suzy). I have placed texel64cl.exe in c:\temp on both hosts 'rita' and 'suzy' I ran 'smpd -d 0' on hosts 'rita' an...

Can't compile McBrain 2.7 bmi2 - stopped working message

I get the windows popup error that McBrain2.7.exe has stopped working as soon as it starts its bench process.

Re: Stockfish version with hash saving capability

First, thanks for this overdue feature. I've been waiting for SF to have this option for a very long time now. Second, unfortunately the code isn't working properly. It only works up to a 2 GB hash size and it takes extremely long to save it...about 10 mins. For comparison, I save the asmFish hash (...
