Re: New engine: belofte

Thanks for your efforts but I have bad news. When I try to play a game against Belofte, it starts thinking when out of book but it never moves. In fact I can see with task manager that after a couple of moves it is no longer in memory. I have seen 2 different problems: 1) On windows 32 bit, the ver...

Re: New engine: belofte

Belofte 0.9.18 released. This is mainly a bugfix release that solves regressions introduced by 0.9.14 and 0.9.16. Also fixes CPU usage. Timeobserver thread on linux using 5% and windows 25% (time function?) only starts when time bound search is starting. Due to commenting some parts in the unused se...

Re: New engine: belofte

Dear Gabor, Thanks for your feedback. What compiler and what platform did you compile on? usercmd.cpp: In function 'void cmd_computer(const char*, const char*)': usercmd.cpp:516:10: warning: 'char* strncat(char*, const char*, size_t)' specified bound 1024 equals destination size [-Wstringop-overflow...

Re: New engine: belofte

Just noticed that Belofte uses 1 thread even when not on move, while it uses 2 while calculating. This is a 4-core machine and 2 cores are occupied by other tournaments. Belofte is launching multiple threads for its operation: Main program is accepting UI input. It is just waiting for command input...

Re: New engine: belofte

Is there a way to switch off logging and autosave? Good idea for next release. And it seems to me that Belofte in WB mode is uncapable of playing under fractions of a minute time controls. E.g. 40 moves in 0:30 minutes or 0:30+0.2 (Fischer). Is that a parsing problem? The command "level moves m:s n...

Re: New engine: belofte

Dear Gabor, You are not bothering me at all. If people are having trouble using my program or my site, I should do a better job at explaining or organising my site. To give an example, you downloaded 0.9.12 instead of 0.9.14, this was my error. I uploaded only in one place instead of two. Another us...

Re: New engine: belofte

Sorry for the dumb question, but is this a uci engine? It won't register in the Fritz gui and in Arena it won't make a move. Yes, it's an XBoard engine. Only, at the site you can read: 'The program interfaces according to the Winboard/Xboard 2 protocol or the UCI protocol.' UCI version has its sepa...
