It has some problems with openings. Up until a few nets ago its best opening move is b4!
That move is now finally out of the top 4 but I was about to accept the result as is, and preparing excuses that it is a good opening :)

Another reason to love scorpio.
The orangutan is my favorite opening.
OK, maybe not the strongest. But good,clean, quirky fun.

Good afternoon. Could you help me with the launch of Scorpio 3.0.8. I installed everything as described in https://github.com/dshawul/Scorpio/blob ... INSTALL.md. Created UCI engine. But when I load into the ChessProgram, I get an error.

Could you try running the following from the command line on the Scorpio/bin/Windows directory ?

Code: Select all

scorpio.bat go quit
Post back the output you get.

It looks like it has not finished calibrating the networks since the last message printed is "loading graphs".
Give it a couple of minutes and it should produce analysis on the start position with PVs like "e2e4 e7e5".
Once this process completes, you can install "scorpio.bat" not "scorpio.exe" in your favourite GUI.

There are indeed "e2e4 e7e5" messages. But if you select scorpio.bat in the UCI installation window, nothing is created. And if scorpio.exe - the same error as before

If you get analysis, it means the installation is done correctly.
What GUI are you using?
UCI GUIs often create config file for engines that could mess up things for engines which have own config files like Scorpio does.
Try removing the engine installation in the GUI completely, before installing it again.
Also, try to install it as xboard engine first.

Request to Daniel Shawul. Can you help to run the engine Scorpio in the latest version under Windows 10 x64 bit. My GUI is CuteChess 1.2.0. Please write what I need to download and where and how to run the GUI. Thank you in advance for all information.
