Doesn't work for me. It compiles w/o errors, but segfaults:

Code: Select all

$ g++ -pthread -std=c++11 -O3 -fno-rtti -msse4.2 -o senpai_10
$ ./senpai_10 
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
I'm using gcc 4.8.1 on Ubuntu 13.10. All very recent stuff. :roll:
Theory and practice sometimes clash. And when that happens, theory loses. Every single time.

(Imagine Steve's questions here)

Sorry Steve, I feel pain trying to answer this.
Just enjoy Senpai.
I'm not going anywhere for now.

Hi Fabien,

Welcome back. For sure your engine will be interesting for TCEC Season 7 (should start sometime around August/September).

Best,
Martin
