Any estimation of the elo jump in this version related to the previous one :!: :?:

In my private rating list I have BlackMamba 1.4 x64 MP rated 2972 Elo after playing 4000 games at relatively long time controls....

My reference chess engine is Deep Fritz 13.0.0.0 rated 3068 Elo....

I do hope this new version will break the 3000 Elo barrier in my rating list :D

Dr.Wael Deeb....i honestly do not know :oops:
BlackMamba should be close to Rybka, very close...we focused a lot on the smp version and less on the evaluation function but this is the first version 8-)

No problem,we'll find out for you :wink:

Hi Matteo,

a user in the Chess2U forum is disappointed because it doesn't work on Windows XP SP3.
Any chance you could do an extra compile that would make such users happy?

Cheers,
Graham.

I have 32-bit Windows XP SP3.
Just double-clicked on BlackMamba_MP_w32.exe
Seems to work...
What exactly is this Richard_1977 from Chess2U complaining about?...

He reckoned it wouldn't work. I'll pass on that it works okay for you, Ernest.
