Thanks.
I am going to snoop through your code right away.

I hope for a Andscacs victory in TCEC 10.

And then a parade, with giant cheese balls baloons
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Hi Daniel!

Congratulations for your new version of Andscacs :)
Thanks for sharing your source , good to close it again for the next versions !

Good luck for TCEC §

And now with the public source , our favourites known trolls (mainly come to mind Mr Sean , if it can read a source lol and also Mr "No progress part N" ) will just shut up lol

All the best
Dany

That discussion was about that an engine can not make continuously large elo steps in short time and be original. That has nothing to do with open source.

[I don't like studying other people source code so it is useless for me]

Hi!
I was asked about a problem with the Mac compile, but I have no idea about the problem. Maybe someone? Many thanks:
I can not execute Andscacs in my iMac, below information:

it looks like a missing symbol in stdc++ library.
is the software linked usign -static?
is the library present on the system reporting the crash?

it was on a 2010 Mac Pro , this batch was complied on a 2015 i7 IMac

otherwise best bet may be to try compiling yourself...

the option for macOS is -static-libstdc++

The source has no license so I guess it's under public domain?
About the license, Elcabesa just told me that the WinGroupAffinity part of the code taken from Stockfish is incompatible with public domain license. Maybe the best is to remove it from Andscacs. In fact nobody is using it that I know. What do you think about? Thanks.
I just added it if I remember well when Ipmanchess asked to test Andscacs with more than 64 cores, I think.
I removed the WinGroupAffinity stuff from the source, just for if. Also a nice guy from tcec forum tried it and seems that don't work stable with more than 64 cores with this option active. When I have one of such machines if ever, I will try :-)
And also I have put a commentary about an idea taken from Discocheck that probably I removed when cleaning the code to publish it. Daniel Anulliero asked about the code and I reliazed later.
The source updated:

I am really impressed with Andsacs in the TCEC so far. Its undefeated. Its going to be exciting to see how it does in the next rounds. Its a really tough dark horse so far.
