Re: Crafty 23.1 (JA) oddities

Most likely you're using the UCI version of Jim's Crafty build which done via the Wb2Uci adapter. It has an option WhiteScore which is false by default. Either add

Code: Select all

WhiteScore=true
to the Wb2Uci.eng file or check WhiteScore in the UCI options dialogue of your GUI.

Hope it helps.

Re: Crafty-22.2 is available

Hi crafty fans, same problem on vista ultimate 64 after typing "go" or "analyze". At least i get: "Fatal Exception: c0000005" from vista. Wb2Uci works quite fine (First long game first draw against Hoshad with rybka on playchess). Congrats to Robert "Bob" Hyatt and the whole Crafty team for this fin...
