It would be nice, if you could send it to my rwbc mail address.
rwbc (at) gmx.de. Thanks.

Then please do it and release the source.
It may be interesting to know how much elo do you lose for it and if the engine that you get is stronger than DiscoCheck(note that 60% is not enough and you need similarity that is smaller than 55%)
TwinFish 0.07

The similarity is less than 55% and the elo fall is about 70-80 only.

This version of TwinFish is based on Stockfish dev 14 01 29 6:02PM (TimeStamp : 1391014933 )

The only changes made to reach a "<55%" similarity are a complete asymetric PST (based on Adam Hair values).

If you want to see the changes just search for "Robber" in the sources files.

There is only the source code, no binary.
If someone wants to compile good binaries it should be nice.

Don't forget : this version is only a joke and I don't steal Stockfish! ;-)

I'm very interested to see the result in similarity dendogram now !
Twinfish 0.07 is more related with Toga Hair than with Stockfish with the Don's Similarity Tester. And there is no code from Toga in it !!! ;-)
Does someone still have the source or a binary of it? (Wayback and search returns nothing for this anymore)
I would like to do some experiments with it.
