Hi, Richard!
Why Critter needs gtb.dll?
In uci options seems that gtb use are not allowed..
Are there any site to download gtb.dll?
Or are in alpha state?
Thanks in advance

There is some unportable windows specific code which needs to be rewritten first (mostly the threading stuff). But the windows compile runs just fine under linux + wine.

During development I experimented a bit with gaviota tablebases. I built a custom dll from Miguel's probing code sources. It is currently in experimental stage and tb probes are done only at the root anyway. I decided to switch it off for the official release and there is no UCI option to enable it nor is the dll included with the download. By accident the DLL loading code stayed in, hence you can see the message "GTB dll not found" during startup. But this does not affect anything, you can safely ignore this for now.

In the next release it will be fully functional and documented.

You may want to look at Michel van der Bergh modifications of Toga - he added some code to port back Toga to linux. It is GPL'ed, but might give you some ideas even if you don't want to use the code directly. It was simple stuff, if I recall it correctly.

I use wine - indeed, it works very well for most engines - but I prefer native linux versions.

Awesome!

My Own Elostat reports it at 58 points higher thsn 0.52 single core.
