Did you edit the .ini file?

hope this helps, it worked with version 2.1 here:

; Sets the number of thread for parallel search (set 1 for single thread search, from 2 to 8 for lazySMP)
Thread = 1

It was set at 2, yes, but I use it in UCI mode and default UCI threads is 1 even if the setting in the ini file is 2.

Default number of search threads not being 1 should be a no-no imo.

Installed under Shredder or Fritz the displayed number of threads is 1 but the engine uses 2 if the ini says so.

I removed the ini file from the Gogobello folder. That seems the safest way.

Further investigation revealed that whatever you set using the parameter window will be overwritten by the ini file. That's awful!

BTW, why do you need an ini file for an UCI engine?

Stash version 15.4 released: https://gitlab.com/mhouppin/stash-bot/-/releases/v15.4

This version corrects an Elo loss that appeared in 15.1 with endgame evaluations, and implements an history heuristic for move sorting.
Should be 40-50 Elo stronger than version 15.
