Andscacs - New version 0.93

Post by cdani » Sun Jan 14, 2018 10:43 am

I published a new version, 0.93.

http://www.andscacs.com/downloads/andscacs093.zip

Changes:
* Speed improvements.
* Move search improvements.
* Solved little bugs.

Now it uses events instead of the ugly sleep to wake up threads. Linux version continues to use sleep, but now it interferes much less than in previous version.
With luck is 10 or more elo improved, not much.

I solved a bug related to ponder that can be the possible cause of the crash, but I'm not sure.
Updated executable:

Maybe someone can try it also at Playchess.
Thanks!!
