Visual C++ 2005 crashes..

Hello, I downloaded Visual C++ Express 2005 about a week ago, I have not really used it as I don't think I know enough about C yet or about C++, but the thing is I twice just started up the program, today and yesterday, I don't think the program can have been doing much, but after about half a minut...

Re: Why Christophe doesnt answer???

[*]A third method scales even better to more processors, as it has more flexibility in where to split the search tree. It is also more complicated to implement I imagine, and not so well documented because there are relatively few programs using it. I think this is called DTS, and Crafty and Zappa ...

Re: Why Christophe doesnt answer???

Paulo, he answered that question many times. He thinks that it is pointless to add SMP support until he improves his engine enough to be one of the top engines. I didn´t read nothing about Chess Tiger SMP, thanks, Tony. But if I asked a question to Christophe two times, why he didn´t reply? At leas...

Re: What is New in Toga II 1.3x4? It is Windows-only engine

[ Hello Neil, thanks for the example of a makefile. I'm trying to study C a bit and Toga's source at the same time, but for compiling Toga in Microsoft Visual C I don't suppose one could use your example makefile? I assume many compiler switches would not be the same? The project is pretty simple. ...

Re: What is New in Toga II 1.3x4? It is Windows-only engine

Being Windows-only seems to be a new feature of Toga's latest version? Or has someone compiled it for other architectures? I can't compile it in Linux. If anyone has succeeded in compiling a Linux binary, perhaps they could help me? The release violates the GPL too, I think. See my recent post. I d...

Re: Learn Chinese Chess XiangQi, it is fun and NOT hard to l

At one time it seems there was development of a GnuChess version of XiangQi, but although there is a protocol, GUI and engine already developed and downloadable, not much seems to have been done since 2003. The existing engines are not very strong yet it seems, from reactions in the forum. Latest de...

Re: Learn Chinese Chess XiangQi, it is fun and NOT hard to l

You learn it and you play it. Ta taa.. Now that I know how to move the pieces I can NOT find anybody to play against, I will have to buy a decent XiangQi program to play a little, or probably download a very weak XiangQi program like this one: http://www.jcraner.com/qianhong/ With a search, I found...

Re: knight sacrifice Test position

Hiarcs 11.1 Combinations doesn't seem to like the Knight sac at all, although all the alternatives also don't score very high for White. After 13.O-O, two best moves, from Black's viewpoint, Hiarcs thinks Black is now clearly better but it does not prefer Zap's 13...Qa5: r2q1b1r/1b1nk1p1/p1p1pnBp/1...

Re: knight sacrifice Test position

Thanks for the position Dom, it seems an interesting novelty from Fritz! Zap!Chess thinks White has not enough compensation for the Knight, Hiarcs 11 likes Black even better it seems after 13. O-O than Zap. Toga thinks that 13...Qb6 -the move that Fritz expected if I understand Chessbase notation co...
