PS: With the installed DLL-File I now can load the engine, but it doesn't run (also Fritz GUI).

Probably installing of this Intel redistributable package should help.

We need a native Mac version!

Code: Select all

Rank Name              Elo    +    - games score oppo. draws 
   1 Crafty 25.1bT11  3022   58   58   100   55%  2989   25% 
   2 Crafty v25.0.1   2989   56   56   100   50%  2989   32% 
   3 Smart Think 1.9  2989   40   40   200   48%  3005   29% 
Very respectable considering running 32 bit under wine. The 30+ ELO gain is int ballpark of what we are testing against other engines from Crafty 25.0 - the bars here are still pretty high - so consider it a very rough estimate of the Crafty gain since v25.0. As far as the comparable native mac Crafty vs non native mac ST 1.9 - it's not a fair test and was not the point of my post.

Are you ok with previous version?..
I have Fritz14 GUI and it works well with ST. Have you tried to simply run engine executable?
Hi Sergei,
thanks for the engine. It works here too inside Fritz 14, but does not use tbs, as they are here in f:\tbs and not under c:\tablebases.
This uci parameter is not shown in the GUI to change them. I have made an .ini with correct path and SMT finds the tbs inside command prompt, but not inside Fritz 14.

best wishes

Hi!

Nalimov TBs looks to be doesn't help SmarThink at all and I'm planning to discontinue it's support and switch to Syzygy in next version.

Smarthink 1.80 and 1.90 don't work at Owl Rating List.
I only use Arena GUI with Linux/WINE or Windows 7/8.1/10.

Neither 64-bit nor 32-bit worked even with libiomp5md.dll installed.
My CPU's are all AMD 4 cores with 8GB RAM.

This is the reason why the latest Smarthink versions don't appear in my rating list. Older Smarthink 1.70 is ok.
