Re: Cheese 2.1

Ok, it's great that you at least found the issue :mrgreen:
I'll wait for the new version, meanwhile Cheese 2.0 is doing ok in my lowest league. Around middle of the pack.

Re: A complete 2000 lines of code engine

Yep, there is a "ponder" option that tells the GUI if the engine supports the feature or not. I think the ponderhit command is when the opponent makes the move that we anticipated, gui sends ponderhit command that should be taken as "ok, you were right, your time to move, continue search" (or someth...

Re: A complete 2000 lines of code engine

Are you planning to implement ponder support, sooner or later? Well, I must admit I am not a pondering fan. I am more in the "give the engine all the threads" community. But in fact it is already here, but I still have to check it, I wonder if it's always working well (you will tell me !) ... In xb...

RubyChess 1.6 (which is waaaay stronger and almost always wins) and when the game is about to end and cheese is left with very few pieces, Arena will say "ill...

Re: Cheese 2.1

I think it's due to ponder. As I see in the changelog from 2.0 to 2.1 the whole uci thing was re-written. Maybe there's a bug around there? When ponder is on, Cheese can't lose any game, it will do illegal moves before it. With 2.0, this does not happen and works ok. Here's more of the log and the p...
