easy linux? You are kidding or you a re a comp freak.
For us common people, we do not even know how to put to work a program downloaded
In fact I do not understand a shit about it

Well, it was just kind of a private joke. Let's asume linux is harder than other OSs; in this case a simple line from the command line does the job easily.

Hi, long time without enter here

I have installed cygwin on my windows 7, so I compiled with this command under cygwin terminal

g++ -o EXchess.exe src/EXchess.cc -O2

And the compilation was succesfull so, here is the two necesary files, EXchess.exe and cygwin1.dll into a .zip file

http://www.mediafire.com/?ku5nvl8mubrmebp

I have tested the compiled file with Arena 3 and it woks fine

Thanks Tony. Do you know offhand whether or not this compile will also work under Windows XP?

Unfortunately, this is what most noobs still think, solely because they've never tried linux. I'm using ubuntu + gnome-shell, and to be honest, it's easier / faster / more reliable than windows... by a long way! and virus / malware free. So it's certainly more appropriate than windows for noobs. the truth is that *change* is what frightens noobs.
if you want to compile for windows, the easiest way is to download mingw on your linux machine an type the same command line you did with g++. anyway, that's how i compile my engine DoubleCheck for Win64.

Thanks Tony. I compared your compile with those of Jim Ablett and found strange differences in favour of yours.

In a certain position JA 32-bit reached depth 13 in 83 secs, kNps was 154.
Your compile reached depth 17 (!) in the same amunt of time and kNps was 836.

JA 64-bit does not run for me at all.

My system: Q6600, Vista 64-bit.

My apologies. JA Exchess compiles are defective. I have removed the links from my page. New Exchess code is not working correctly with Msvc/Intel compilers. I've been so busy with getting Stockfish ready, the Exchess builds were released without proper testing. I will look into the problem.

Jim.

Thank you Jim,

note that anyway in my own tests 2.2 (not considering the problems in sudden death games) is smashing 2.1.1. You would make a courtesy to me if you could tell Marco and the other programmers that the new engine is much stronger than 2.1.1.

Thank you



Best Regards
