New crafty version

Post by bob » Sat Aug 10, 2019 2:03 am

I just fixed a bug found by a crafty user. Basic idea was that after the syzygy implementation, I left a piece of code in iterate.c that could cause a nasty issue (playing a null move at the root and blowing up). Minor fix to solve this. If anyone is interested in distributing this, let me know and I can send it to you. I no longer have the ftp web site at UAB.

I want to mention that nearly all sources of all crafty versions are already put on one github account by Martin Pedersen since 2018.
May be Bob can contact him and he will just add the new version there.

https://github.com/MartinMSPedersen/Crafty-Chess
martin@linux.com

I am sure Mike or Dann will compile it soon.

To respect the author, I suggest him to contact Bob first, ask permission as an official source then offer help ;)

BTW, I prefer an official website/repository directly from Bob.

Hi Bob,
I sent you a private message , but for some reason it is still hung up in my Talkchess outbox. Hopefully you get it today or tomorrow. If it doesn’t go through , what is the best way to reach you?
Best regards,
Michael

If I recall correctly, a pm appears in your outbox until the recipient views it, but it has already been "sent".

Just got back from vacation.
Where is the source code for the current version of Crafty?
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Actually it is going to take a few days. Looks like there is a bug in the syzygy probe code I used. Has a problem with en passant captures...

I'll post an update when I get this resolved...
