zurichess - new chess engine

Post by brtzsnr » Fri Jan 16, 2015 8:01 pm

Hello,

I released today the first version of zurichess, my UCI chess engine. The estimated strength is somewhere between Stockfish SkillLevel 5 and SkilLevel 6.

Feel free to download it and please include use it if your run any tournament.

I got motivated and inspired by recent chess events Carlsen vs Anand and Komodo vs Stockfish.

I can compile a Linux binary, but I guess most people here use Windows. Nevertheless the compiler can be downloaded from http://www.golang.org.

Running on a RaspberryPi it's between 1700-1800 on blitz on FICS. I haven't got an official account, though.

As for a direct link I can provide a Linux binary. Does that help?

I'll need to wait for a Windows compile, but I'm sure that others will be grateful for a Linux compile. 8-)

Thanks to the author,
but they do not provide the executable.

Sure that you have already compiled. :D :D

I added a Linux amd64 binary here https://bitbucket.org/brtzsnr/zurichess ... au-c3f39d5

I cannot crosscompile to Windows, unfortunately.
