Sting SF 17v

I still managed to do this version.
download: http://www.mediafire.com/file/w2frw4ara ... 7.zip/file
It contains some important corrections (3) and the file how_to_use.txt.
I closed all links to the previous versions and I don't recommend to use their.

Now I remember why this position is not good : Rc8+ is sometime evaluated as 0.00 as some other moves. I'm removing this one. Vincent, are you sure? This position seem...

Re: Sting SF 17

One very important tip (advice) for users of Sting 17. Now PLY_MAX is only 100 moves. It means that Sting is ablae to display the solution (PV-line) only of 100 moves, maximally. Of course, Sting is able to find a mate with much more than 100 moves. Once it was: "mate in 92" (184 moves). And then (...

Re: Sting SF 17

If Sting does not load in Chessbase/Fritz GUI Sting is no longer important for me and other users. :( This is sad to read it. All my tough work can be disqualified by the abnormal work of some GUI. I think to change the name Sting to Buran. :lol: Oh my god, what stubbornness. If you don't change th...

Re: Sting SF 17

Now, we may go to the essence of the version 17. I added a code to solve special (very long solution) puzzles. Engines, as a rule, are not able to do it by searching. But here (Sting 17) is possibility to try to do it by auto-playing (maybe it would be better: self-playing ???). If you click Sting-...
