GearHeart 0.16 POPCNT and SSE3 builds

Mediafire: GearHeart-016-tp.zip
Filedropper: GearHeart-016-tp.zip

Compilation requires the sparsehash and boost packages.
I also had to disable FLTO as the resulting execs crashed.

Finally added PyTuroChamp to the chronology after some re-testing sessions today.
Could run successfully matches now under CuteChess as uci! with Python 3.71 and pypy3 (recommended for speed).
You stilll need to import python-chess first, in your Python or pypy installation with the pip importer.
https://github.com/niklasf/python-chess

For rating organisations probably the best is to use 'newt' from several available PyTuroChamp flavors,
because this one has time management!

I backdated the entry to 2018-07-02 when several major changes were done to stability and uci support.
Current release was changed just a week ago for at least one flavour.
BTW it is also able to play from start positions since a while.

https://github.com/mdoege/PyTuroChamp
https://mdoege.github.io/PyTuroChamp/
https://mdoege.github.io/PyTuroChamp/engine.html

Currently running a test match vs. NSVChess_014 at 40/4.

For simplicity and other things I just run it through Inbetween:

Code: Select all

[InBetween]
Debug := 3
CommandLine := C:\pypy3\pypy3.exe C:\Engines\WB\PyTuroChamp_20190422/ptc_xboard.py newt
Log := PyTuroChamp_20190422.log
 
[Client2Server]
; Set transalation of commands from the client here
; format word := translation
 
[Server2Client]
; Set transalation of commands from the server here
; format word := translation
The json entry for CuteChess:

Code: Select all

{
		"command" : "PyTuroChamp_20190422.exe",
		"name" : "PyTuroChamp_20190422",
		"protocol" : "uci",
		"stderrFile" : "",
		"workingDirectory" : "C:\\Engines\\WB\\PyTuroChamp_20190422"
	},

Currently running a test match vs. NSVChess_014 at 40/4.
8 games, final result 4:4 should have been 4.5:3.5 for NSVChess though.

Game 3 uncorked an promotion bug for NSV which I wasn't aware anymore.
(can be fixed with polyglot, which will set Q as a promotion piece automatically,
if Promoteworkaround = true)

Game 8 showed a full R blunder in an easy drawn endgame by PyTuroChamp, but still
NSV allowed a 3 time rep, but PyTurochamp neither made the rep move nor
showed any move at all in the pv anymore and lost on time.

I recall trying the Feb 2018 release, it ended up on my blacklist due to stalls, it was that bad. Does the new version work for you?

As for PyTyroChamp ... well, let's just say I look askance at engines that encourage you to play with pypy. :D

Untested here so far. Had no problems with older versions though.

And thanks for the new Tunguska compile and adding my changes to CuteChess.
I could have done it the other way and add your changes to my compilation, but I wasn't sure
if people liked my other changes ;-)
