As the man in black once said,
"You guessed wrong!"

Look in the src folder.

OK, I am officially highly impressed.

This thing actually recognizes fortress draws and scores them as zero.

I don't know of any other program that can do that consistently.

I wonder if the zero score on the last iteration is an artifact in the log file (which is what I have been examining).

I reformatted the log to put the pv on one line, instead of splitting it for my version. That is not in the version I posted.

Hi,

could be interesting to see results in games in a Rating List. Normaly I am not a fan of ... using the sources by others. In this case own ideas are included and all is fine in readme ... clear to see ... using Stockfish 2.1.1 sources.

Not sure ...
Should I test the engine or not?
Own ideas looks like interesting ...

Hm ...
I don't know!
Games could be help others programmers with the ideas added in Sting.

Best
Frank

Marek, is there any advantage to base Sting on SF2.1.1 and not SF6 ?
Thanks,
Vincent

Hi Dann

I just tried the 64 bits compile, and noticed that Sting time management is very bad. It just lost the game on time in completely won position. Can Sting time managemnt be improved, so it doesn't lose games on time ?

This engine is created for analyze actually not for engine ve engine maches.
