Re: CCRL Chess Engine Match Standards. How obsolete are they?

To me this seems more of an attack directed at CCRL team than actually getting to the point. From what I read, the issue is the advertised 40/4 | 40/40 which are actually scaled to some CPU that was decided when the website was started.

Re: Micah

According to https://developer.android.com/ndk/guides/cpp-support#c_runtime_libraries the NDK supports C++17.

Reason being situations where the other side can introduce a potential (or actual) check blocker (for example if white had a ...
