Re: Alouette 0.0.1

@Daniel Thank you for the information. :wink: @zulban Thank you for your message. I followed your suggestion and started a test unit. It made me discover some bugs. :) I updated the git repository but didn't build a new version of the engine, because the bugs fixed don't change the behaviour of the ...

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

Thank you Daniel. I added piece square tables and a kind of minimax. Now Alouette sometimes mates against very easy opponents. It's a beginning. :) I also made a perft executable, using Alouette code. I was glad to see that it gives good results, but I was disappointed when I made a comparison with ...

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

Hello! I fixed a bug in the castling procedure. It was the origin of some illegal moves in FRC mode. I hope it is good now. Please find Alouette 0.0.3 still at the same place .

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

I look forward to further development of this engine ! I did run some chess960 games. Most were OK but the GUI did report an illegal move in one of them. Thank you very much. Yes, there were some illegal moves. There was also a problem with castling notation. I believe it is fixed now. Please find ...

Re: Alouette 0.0.1

So right now it's similar to a random mover or is there some sort of "logic" in the move chosen? Yes, it's similar to a random mover. The moves are in generation order. The first legal move is played. Rank Name Elo +/- Games Score Draws 1 Ram 2.0 [wb2uci] 130 136 14 67.9% 50.0% 2 Belofte 0.2.7 76 2...

It can play chess 960. 8-) Before working on move evaluation, I would like to make the current program as clean as possible. Comments and suggestions are welcome. It's written i...

Re: Creating a spoon of TSCP181

To avoid problems with spooning a non-free engine, I might be tempted to create a very basic bitboard engine. Interested?
