I forgot to mention that next versions will probably be closed source again.

Thanks Daniel. It is amazing to see how strong Andscacs is in long games when playing in TCEC. You have done an amazing work so far.
Only 5 elo improvement ? I thought you and I had an agreement, that when you release new version, it is going to be 50 elo... :) :) :D

I was wondering if you can add parameters to Andscacs like the one Texel has ? I very much like to tweak and tune the engines. The more parameters Andscacs has, the better :) :)

Hi Daniel,

I tried Andscacs 0.92.1 in Cutechess GUI under Linux and it doesn't start(segfault).
It does work starting from the command line in a terminal.
Version 0.92 worked in Cutechess GUI under Linux.
0.92.1 does work in Arena for Linux.

Kind regards,

Antonio

Thank you for this wonderful engine!

However, I can't build it on Linux (Fedora 26, g++ 7*). The source includes windows.h. After commenting that out I got more errors I couldn't solve yet.

Cool!

The source has no license so I guess it's under public domain?

In debug.h comment the
#define WINDOWS
and activate the
#define LINUX
Hope it works with this.

cdani wrote:Hello. So here it is the version for the second stage of TCEC. Is really a minor version, with luck +5 elo.

Changes:
* Improved various pawn structure evaluation parameters.
* Move search improvements.
* Improvement of various imbalances.
* Improvements in some endgames.

As promised the source code:
www.andscacs.com/downloads/andscacs921src.zip

Is a Visual Studio 2013 solution. Also it contains a makefile for Linux.
Michael will try to make a Mac version, thanks to him!
So far I can get it to compile pretty easily on the macOS - but it crashes right at the start

Code: Select all

Current executable set to 'andscacs' (x86_64).
(lldb) run
Process 54267 launched: '/Users/michaelbyrne/Downloads/andscacs_921_src/andscacs' (x86_64)
Andscacs 0.921 by Daniel Jose
Process 54267 exited with status = 1 (0x00000001) 
(lldb) list
   108 	{
   109 	
   110 	#ifdef WINDOWS
   111 	#ifdef GENERARDMP
   112 		SetUnhandledExceptionFilter(unhandled_handler);
   113 	#endif
   114 	#endif
   115 		fprintf(stdout, "%s\n", presentaprograma().c_str());
   116 		inicialitzacions();
   117 		prepara_entrada();
(lldb) 
it looks like a buffer overflow or seg fault

Unfortunately no, and the forum software does not accept tzhe text of the error message....

gcc complains about the syntay in analisis.cpp

Code: Select all

analisis.cpp:762:3: Fehler: expected unqualified-id before "do"
Three more of that
