Zangdar 2.29

Improvements in history pruning. Although there is not a lot of modifications, Zangdar improved a lot, which surprised me !

A very strong (probably already top 20-25) program developed since end of '22.
Tested in an own OpenBench instance
https://chess.drpowell.org

A close version compiled by me was already playing in Carlos blitz tournaments here:
forum3/viewtopic.php?t=83657

In a recent own test with (just) 1200 ultrafast games it came just around 100 rating points below Obsidian 12.0.
(results and pgn in my download - this was a version slightly before release, but release version increased nps by roughly
10% due to some last code changes!)

As there are no win compilations for now, I made an avx2 and a sse4.2/pop compilation available.

More compiles (author's) here:

I am having issues as well. For me, it crashes if I use more than one thread. I don't think the GUI is the problem.

Hi,
Im looking into it. I have also crashes in multi-threads ( As I rarely use this mode, I didn't detect this. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I use Win 10, Arena 3.5.1 and 32 GB ram, and from the start, your engine indicates 0 MB. Oddly, ver. 2.19.03 works well.
