Critter 1.0 available

Post by rvida » Wed Mar 16, 2011 10:13 pm

Book support

In addition to its own .cbk book format, Critter can now read Polyglot .bin books too. Just set the "Book File" UCI option to point to a *.bin file. Book creation from pgn file ('makebook' and 'mergebook' console commands) works only with native format.

Repetition detection

Critter now scores 2-fold repetition as draw. See this thread on rybka forum.

Enjoy

Richard

Thank goodness for that. Was beginning to think everyone had gone bananas.

Thanks.

Hi Richard,

How much improved do you estimate Critter to be?
