Re: Is there a standard in implementing MultiPV in regular engines?

Although most engines supporting MultiPV option will show a similar thing in say MultiPV=4 mode...... The way you describe multiPV or the one proposed my h.g.m. are ok to produce multiPV. That said I don't know how much engines are optimized for playing in multiPV mode, just think at time managemen...

Re: FRC / Chess960 -- Some Lessons I Learned

I don't think any castling is allowed since king after castling will be in check or the final square is already occupied

Re: Explanation of the Cute Chess message 'connection stalls'

This option cannot be used in combination with the tc option. e.g. %cute...

I haven't understood what you have implemented and how you use cutechess :) cutechess reports "connection stalls" when the engine doesn't reply wuth the expected messages to stop, or uci (I suppose). if you use cutechess with tournament time control and your engine search at depth 5 and after a minu...

Re: Hash collision?

I have just seen that when first reading the files, the code read the PairsData, each pairsData contains an array of pieces with defines the order of pieces. I have just read KNNvKB files and and in all the pairsData struct contained the ord...
