It appears that I've managed to compile the current release version with the Large Page support disabled.
For the people that intend to use this feature, I promise to release in a couple of days a compile with the large page support enabled (but otherwise perfectly identical to the current version). Hopefully this is the only gaffe of the release...
Thank you for testing, and sorry for the inconvenience.
quickly running through your engine & while it seems to be an improvement, it also (as far as i can tell) still lacks the 'creativity' that it shares with its lineage (i don't believe any of ippolit, crafty or stockfish are particularly good speculative engines). do you have any plans to address this and/or have you attempted to do so with 1.5?
Although I am very fond of the attacking speculative engines I believe that your assessment does not reflect or address what Robert Houdart has managed to do. It would appear he has created the strongest chess engine in the world. Period! Also, I happen to feel Houdini's style is elegant and beautiful. Perhaps, instead of making obscure statements, play a few more games, you make see the light. Maybe, Houdini can even show you the Dragon is still viable.
