Re: To Steven Blincoe and no more

Re: yacen by Christopher Thiele (UCI engine)

I will take a look and attempt to compile it with a view to making it do something. The Yacen project is obviously in a VERY early stage (there is just a board.c). I would congratulate anyone's chess program these days, even this..... #include<stdio.h> main() { printf("Hello World"); &...

Re: yacen by Christopher Thiele (UCI engine)

Yes , Here is homepage... https://sites.google.com/site/marochess/yace .... it is about a 2500 engine However he says it is called Yacen not YACE.

Re: Checkmate In Zero

If the position is invalid (several kings on the board, for example) you should assume the behavior of a chess engine to be undefined : Actually that is only true for UCI engines. WB protocol prescribes that the engine should generate an error message when presented with positions it cannot handle,...

Re: Win 7 question

Is there anything specific I should watch for on a Win 7 os, I7 quad core relating to GUI's, winboard, uci engines, etc? If any real problems with uci/winboard, will running compatility to XP resolve most if not all issues in that regard? For instance, will Comet B33 run fine? Deep Fritz 8? Ktulu 9...
