Re: Andscacs - New version

Thanks!
So all the engines solved same number of positions, 8?
And Andscacs was the 4th fastest?
May be I didn't understand.
Dani.

Re: Testsuite 30 , results update

Thanks again. But I searched everywhere for some time and I was not able to find the meaning of the TSR %MM ATMM ART columns.

Re: Testsuite 30 , results update

Hi!
Thanks, it's the first results I see of Andscacs. Can you explain or send a link where what you have done is explained? I have no idea of what this means.
Daniel.

Andscacs - New version

Hi! I just published a new version of Andscacs, 0.60l, with support for 32 bit windows, but it is 50 elo points weaker. Also all versions will not ask for msvcp100.dll if it is not installed on the computer, so will be easier for users to use it without external dependences. It's normal to lose 50 e...

Re: New engine - Andscacs.

Re: New engine - Andscacs.

Congratulations on creating a working engine! Just a couple of suggestions which will make it easier to use and test. Firstly, it does not run for me on Win7 but it does work on Vista. You could try building it without needing any MSVCP100.dll or other libs. Next, it does use a lot of "extra" CPU t...

Re: New engine - Andscacs.

So if two people tells about the Popcnt thing, is that it's a must! :-) So it's done! In the zip file now you will find a version "n" without the popcnt requirement. Do you know if the instructions _BitScanForward64 and _BitScanReverse64 has problems also? I think no and that all the 64 bit cpu has ...

Re: New engine - Andscacs.

Aha! So what the admins want about the post.
The 2400 is only a very basic idea I have about it after some thousands games played. I think it can be better than this, but may be my findings are biased. What can I do to be in these ratings you say?
Thanks.

A parte me da un poco de corte, puesto que todo el foro está en inglés. So the question is why only 64 bits popcnt. Simply because I don't spent time on understandi...
