In Version 5.4.4, "Bus Error 10" won't happen anymore when ply >= 64. It sometimes wins against Glaurung:



Still there are a couple of bugs, e.g. in another game vs Glaurung OliThink played, which has been lost after 14 ...Kg8???



The funny part is, that it won't play the move when analyzing the position. This is the eval:

I couldn't not reproduce the bug with "14. Kg8", but have the guess that a bad timed interruption of ponder could be the reason. I did some changes in 5.4.5.

5.4.6 is (finally) published.
Some protocol features have been adapted and we got rid off an asymmetrical evaluation.

It would be nice if you put your home page link in your sig.
Then old guys like me could remember where to look. :D

Suggestion:
compress the games before sending

Suggestion:
set the priority of scorpio to high.
It will give you 5% more games
