I'll test Fire under Windows as soon as possible (it doesn't seem to work under Wine, unfortunately). And a great thank you for your continuous efforts to give us a fully featured, quality free engine in the last few years.
Hi Boban-
Not running under Wine is disappointing...
Have you tried the 'no popcnt' executables as well?

Yes, of course, but it doesn't work either. But then, Fire 64-bit works fine under Windows 8.

Good timing I guess..I actually wanted to wait a few more days to release it, until the Houdini excitement faded a bit,
but someone found and shared an archive of test compiles I had temporarily placed up on chesslogik, LOL, so I had no choice but to go now.

Sorry no Haswell compile...
and it's Windows only.
Thanks Norman, Fire is a very interesting engine and is one of my favorites.

Best Regards,

Michael

I have it running under macOS wine v2.02 , but as soon as send the command "UCI" , it no longer responds.

So of course usage GUI usage will not work under wine currently.

Not running well under Linux/Wine.

The best way to find out is to run it yourself with Linux It was a problem with Fire 5 and now it is worse.

Is this a problem with Fire 6 running under Linux+Wine?
Or does this also happen under Windows?

Fire 6 is showing a bogus pv after reaching a mate position. (Mate after white's Ne4f6+)

No it's not just Linux, it's happening here under windows as well.
Thanks for pointing that out Joerg...

I'll spend some time this week looking into it

Hi guys, I've released Fire 6.1 (maintenance release: bugfix)
There are no other changes, and no change in playing strength.

http://www.chesslogik.com/downloads/Fire_6.1.7z

Thanks very much to Joerg for promptly bringing this to my attention.
