So where do you get a copy of crystal?
I got lost on Github trying to find it, it's possible you end downloading some Stockfishdev source instead of Crystal :shock:
I did that too. This will get you the right source code using git:

git clone --single-branch --branch crystal https://github.com/jhellis3/Stockfish.git
He is saying about downloading UCI from Github. U end up downloading SC instead of the UCI engine.
Right, as I clearly wrote "This will get you the right source code using git." In case he want to compile his own version, perhaps optimized for his system, without any modifications Dann made.

For those that don't use GitHub or terminal on a regular basis - this link will always give you the latest Crystal:

Hi,

The Honey source code can be downloaded via:

git clone --single-branch -b honey https://github.com/MichaelB7/Stockfish honey

I know Michael is currently receiving compiled Binaries from others.

Above is the various Elo play modes look like when you have the ELo ratings that are within 300 Elo play each other. Two comments - self play of the same engine that is weakened to play different levels probably exaggerates the rating difference between levels. Towards the very bottom , there is not really much difference between the bottom three levels. All of these are anchored to Shallow Blue on CCRL (Rating 1712) at 40/40. CCRL is probably close to FIDE than to USCF. I know for me, Shallow Blue play much stronger than a 1700 USCF player - so in general, the ELo ratings above are inflated as compared to CCRL, but will be closer to USCF - but for now I'm going to leave that way as it probably makes it a little more pleasant for the humans ;>). In any event, you have one engine that has a playing range that is close to 2500 Elo or so - and orange of 3000 Elo when you factor in full-strength mode so anyone can take this engine, play it and get better with it.

The adaptive play modes are still a work in progress, Adapt-2000- has range of 150 Elo from about 1300 to around 1450 (using Honey El0s)), while Adapt_2000+ currently does not have a discernible range and plays near 2000 (CCRL or 2200 Honey Elo ) I think many people will enjoy the adaptive_2000+ as engines rated as low as 1300 has won games against it . It follows the "easy play" code the someone posted a link to here on talkchess
