Announced etc. WB/UCI-engines for CCWiki

Post by Norbert Raimund Leisner » Wed Feb 21, 2018 10:44 am

Hello,


here are some new UCI/WB compatible chess programs for Source Code Only List - Someday Announcement Engine List

https://github.com/jacobrs/stocklion by Jacob Gagné, UCI, C++

The programmer wrote to me: "StockLion est encore en mode développement, nous planifions avoir une version entièrement fonctionnelle vers la fin du mois de Mai.
Je pourrais vous envoyer les fichiers binaires pour Windows dès que nous auvons une version complète et fonctionnelle."

> StockLion engine is still in development stage; we plan to have a fully functional version approximately at the end of (month of) May. I could send to you Windows executable files at the time when a complete and functional edition will be available.

Please! look at the code/commits first before announcing something.
This is for the umptieth time.
Someday something... no one needs this... often it is vaporware
or plain clones or a copy of Vice or CPW or simply nothing...

E.g. I am sure Tony is really happy that you announce his github which
consists just of this (and not updated since 1 year!):

Code: Select all

README.md

+# io
+Winboard chess engine

All the time. In every conversation. You must post. Something. It's like you just can't help yourself.

I don't even remember my GitHub password, heh.

Eventually I will write a new engine from scratch, but don't expect it any time soon.

Norbert:
Some of the engines you mention are already listed.

Guenther, Tony:
My intent with the 'Someday List' is to reserve the *name* of the engine for the author. For me, Tony 'owns' the chess engine name 'Io'. If someone else releases an engine with that same name I will call it 'Io(2)'.

Tony: If you are not interested in the name 'Io', let me know and I will remove Io from the Someday List.

Listing it in the someday list sounds good to me, Ron. I plan to make one final release for Tony's Chess before starting work on Io.
