This engine really has potential. I ran first 250 position tactical test suite. Believe or not, but Xiphos was better than SF 10 :!: .

Milos, I have noticed that Xiphos has problems with time management. I have tried and play a game on Infinity server. Xiphos lost on time after playing only 71 moves. Can you please put time management code from Stockfish? Slow Mover/Move Overhead and Minimum Thinking Time params…
Also support for bin books will be greatly appreciated if it is posible? :) :) :D
