There are no binaries there, just the source. You must build it yourself.

This is the command to collect the source (if you have svn installed):
svn co https://zochova.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/zochova zochova

This is an extremely sophisticated and interesting chess engine.
It uses Ed's opening books.

Here is the source (I tweaked a tiny bit) along with 32 and 64 bit binaries and opening books.

It uses Ed's opening books.

Here is the source (I tweaked a tiny bit) along with 32 and 64 bit binaries and opening books.

Is it "official"?

:P

Thanks Dann

Christopher
Official builds would be provided by the sourceforge site.

I can't get the binaries to run properly yet. I may look into it later.

It's a little fussy, because it requires BOOST to build it.

By alternation of black and white, Zochova will emit moves, but it only seems to think 2 plies deep:

I was just jesting with you. Yes, I saw it needs Boost. Still it looks good, no?

This is a really interesting engine.
I guess that it will go places, eventually.
