Hi everyone!

This is this new release of Toga II 3.0, thanks to Jim Ablett for the compilation.

http://www.computerchess.info/tdbb/phpB ... hp?id=1402

Features:
- scores 64% against previous Toga versions at various time controls, so should be a decent strength improvement.
- Multi-PV fixed

For more details see readme.txt where a full list of changes may be found.

Hope you enjoy using Toga :)

Jerry

Thank you! However this strength increase wouldn't have happened without all the helpful people here, particularly in the Programming forum ...

To clarify: it scored +100 elo (64%) against Toga II 2.02 in 6000 games, 2000 at 10' + 0.1" and 4000 at 1 min + 0.1 s / move. It also defeated Toga Returns 1.1 and Toga 1.4.1 SE by similar margins.

Sorry, my mistake. But I see there are only 32 bit executables included.

I bet 32-bit is just as fast, if not faster for Toga. That's because it's based on Fruit, which doesn't use bitboards.

That's really impressive. Congratulations! I know that it's hard to gain 100 elo at this level. It's possible that the results are a little inflated by self-play, but still, even if it's only 80 elo in rating list conditions, it's a huge step forward :D
