The little changes that I made in static evaluation seem to have made the engine a little... weaker. :)

Code: Select all

Rank Name                          Elo     +/-   Games   Score    Draw 
   1 Monchester 1.0                339      20    1600   87.5%   18.6% 
   2 Alouette 0.1.5                  4      13    1600   50.6%   44.0% 
   3 Alouette 0.1.6                -17      13    1600   47.6%   40.3% 
   4 Alouette 0.1.1                -52      12    1600   42.6%   49.9% 
   5 NEG 1.3                      -224      15    1600   21.6%   32.1% 
But, with less illegal moves and less disconnections, maybe this version will have a better rating?

I fixed a bug which made the engine play illegal move. I also found the reason that made the engine crash sometimes under Windows. It should no longer happen. Thanks to Carlos who reported the issue.

If it is confirmed that the engine is now stable and doesn't play illegal moves, I will try seriously to improve the strength.
Hi Roland,

The windows version is not playing FRC under CuteChess.

Carlos

This has to be the weakest engine ever made, I will teach my nephew's Monkey how to move the chess pieces so Alouette can have a real challenger :mrgreen: :lol: :mrgreen:

That list doesn't work like that. It just compares one engine to another. You could raise the entire list by 224 Elo to put NEG at 0.

This list means that Monchester is 335 Elo (339 - 4) stronger than Alouette 1.0, and Alouette 1.0 is 21 Elo (17 + 4) stronger than version 0.1.6.

his remark is rude nonetheless.

Everything under 800 Elo is almost random play, so it's very hard to test strength accurately. You can see that clearly here: monchester is just a bit stronger than Alouette in the CCRL list, but in the test above, the difference was over 300 Elo.

Hi Carlos. Thanks for your message.

I made a quick test under Windows today, with cutechess-cli. I didn't detect any problem. :|

Hi, I installed 0.1.6 on CuteChess, but when I select FRC mode, the engine doesn't appear (unlike previous versions) :?
