Kingfisher 1.0 released. From Eric Yip, the author of the engine Wowl.

https://github.com/Plan-B6/kingfisher/releases

I have only played a few games with it, so I am not sure of its strength, but so far the early results seem to indicate it is much stronger than Wowl. So far, it's handily beating engines in the 2100 range, and holding its own against Topple 0.2.1, rated 2473 on the CCRL rating list.

Hi,

The source code is there but no Makefile, any idea what the compile parameters are please?

Cheers,

Hi Al,
Best bet is to open an issue on GitHub and ask for the makefile or other compile parameters.
Regards,
Mike

Code for Monik 2.2.7 has been released: Github link.

The only change from v2.2.6 is that game logging is now optional via a cmdline switch. As the result Monik no longer leaves countless game.xxx droppings in its dir/folder.

I had to fight with the code to make it compile under MinGW and Cygwin. Patch submitted.

Static MinGW 64-bit build: monik-227-x64-tp.zip

https://github.com/gameleaper/mainsworthy-old-new

Ive put Mainsworth on GitHub,

its at version 52 FINAL & is compatable with Winboard-AA & Winboard 4.8.0 possibly others, xboard on LINUX did not like it, but Ive messed up my Linux box with two versions of xboard, so a test by you would be nice. it runs on Arean on windows & Linux, cutechess didn't like it on Linux again test it & report if you wish?
