CombiChess by Tom Friederich

Hello,
can CombiChess https://github.com/tom0334/CombiChess be used as an ordinary frontend like Arena , ChessGUI, Scid vsPC or WinBoard Interface http://computer-chess.org/doku.php?id=c ... pport_list for matches engine x vs. engine y? It is possible to embed other UCI compatible engines - despite of Andscacs, Komodo and Stockfish into Tom´s application?

http://computer-chess.org/doku.php?id=c ... ngine_list

What´s about chess engines that are using CECP a.k.a. WinBoard-protocol?

Best wishes,
Norbert

What don't you understand from the readme?
CombiChess a "chess engine" that combines 3 engines into one. It works by essentially asking 3 different engines what the they think is the best move for a given position, and then applying some logic to determine what move to actually do. After initial testing, it seems like it can easily beat the strongest of the 3 engines on its own.
It's very similar to Ferdinands Aiquiri.

It uses the python chess.uci.
A glance in combichess.py is enough to see there is no provision for cecp.

For other engines you have to adapt the script

Code: Select all

engineFileNames = ["stockfish5", "komodo8" , "andscacs"]
