Code: Select all

8q := 8=Q
8r := 8=R
8n := 8=N
8b := 8=B
and in the white configuration:

Code: Select all

1q := 1=Q
1r := 1=R
1n := 1=N
1b := 1=B
I also made a package with the new configuration, just extract the archive in the cray blitz folder:

https://www.mediafire.com/file/bml0lsbi ... 2.zip/file

Use black.bat or white.bat to change the configuration for playing the black or white side.

Please let me know if there are any problems.
I made a mistake. You have to add the changes under [Client2Server] not under [Server2Client].

Here is the corrected configuration, it is now verified that pawn promotion is working:

https://www.mediafire.com/file/5vnatac5 ... 3.zip/file

Use black.bat or white.bat to change the configuration for playing the black or white side. Adjust the level in inbetween_black AND inbetween_white.ini after hard := . You can also change the level in inbetween.ini, but then it will be overwritten after the next change of colour.
Wb2Uci from 20.04.2002 has problems. The new Wb2Uci (23.06.2007) is better. There were enough discussions in the era.

Cray Blitz v49h

I finally compiled a working version (after about 15 years) :)

Console input only. Enter moves as d2d4 etc.

There is no manual with the program.
I have included some literature on the program that I found on the web.

Cray Blitz 49h JA.

Terrific job! Did anyone manage to compile it also under linux?
Linux version :)

One more update, queenside castling didn't work.

Code: Select all

. o-o := \nmove e1g1
. o-o-o := \nmove e1c1
replaced by

Code: Select all

. ...  o := \n move 0
-o := -0

I found one more problem that made Cray Blitz stop playing in rare cases, please update the config: https://www.mediafire.com/file/1hjb8cws ... 4.zip/file

At least under Arena you can now also choose inbetween.exe as WB engine, then you can watch the calculation process in the debug window.

Code: Select all

1b := 1=B
replaced by

Code: Select all

a2a1b := a2a1=B
b2b1b := b2b1=B
c2c1b := c2c1=B
d2d1b := d2d1=B
e2e1b := e2e1=B
f2f1b := f2a1=B
g2g1b := g2g1=B
h2h1b := h2h1=B

On Arena GUI, as the WB engine (inbetween.exe) works perfectly. Much more natural, two files less and without the wb2uci.eng complications. THANK YOU! Both to Maestro Jim and Alexander Schmidt. A masterpiece! I use TC=20'/move.

I've created some standalone winboard executables (using Enigma virtual box) with a selection of secs per move.
