Coming soon

Post by MikeB » Thu Jun 25, 2020 6:35 am

A complete rebase, a reset of Honey to Stockfish, Black-Diamond to Crystal and a weaker Weakfish, with just a touch of ascii art eye candy... look for it B4 the 4th of July ...

Honey, named after my sweet grandmother 'Honey Byrne' , can still play a mean game ...

Code: Select all

   2 Stockfish-dev-062420   3097   5.3    9    9  1000  492.5  49.2   92  107  801   9.2  80.1  3103

but still, she could have been lucky here..

Thanks Mike. Can I request that when you release it you include separate sources for each of the 5 flavors? On previous release I get a single source code and then it becomes very difficult to see what code is from what (say, one would want a source code of Bluefish that doesn't have any code from Honey, etc.)

(for some reason MikeB answered by PM saying he won't do one source for each flavor :shock: )

I see. Any chance you make a list of changes between Stockfish default and these Honey-family versions so I can make separate sources myself?

Thanks Mike,

I look forward to these.

I do ask, though, that if possible you provide or link to various and several releases.

I have a Linux system, so I can make Linux compiles myself, but I also need Windows nonpcount compiles, which I simply can't make myself on my system.

Thanks again,
Marek Soszynski

This a for fun forum - what you asking for would not be fun for me at all.

When you enjoy doing something - it's not work , it's fun. What you are proposing for me , would not be fun. That makes it work, and unless you're name is Wendy and you have been married to me for 43 years - sorry - but that aint happening. ;>)

Seriously though, looking forward to the new version Mike.
