While I am not into SF level play and always have preferred to play one of the hundreds of available chess programs at full strength (or plain Humans OTB and on chess servers), I guess some folks here will find your ela...

Re: Ferret 1.00 v258 - program from 1995

I was a big fan of Ferret back in the early days of computer chess. Even further back, I directed chess tournaments in the northwest US. As I was cataloging my games a few years ago I was surprised to see a familiar name: I apparently played Bruce in a "bye game" at a tournament I directed, long be...

Re: Ferret 1.00 v258 - program from 1995

I'm not aware of any version of Ferret ever being released, commercially or otherwise. As far as I can remember Bruce kept Ferret private. Steve Bruce Moreland also wrote a WB-compatible engine, Gerbil : http://rwbc-chess.de/download.htm Has anyone tried it? CL Looks like a book download only. I no...

But why only "WhiteElo "2324" ?? H6.03 has over 3400 ELO
All players start in all tc classes and variations at 1500.

Re: A complete 2000 lines of code engine

From watching a few dozens of games inbetween I can say that Rybka just relentlessly tries to create an unstoppable passer and succeeds quite often in this vs. Minic. Very good hint ! Maybe I should add some code for candidates. Passer is already there, and quite tuned. There is an addition bonus f...
