This only tends to happen if there's a spare cpu available for it to do so? However, I've removed it from my future testing too.
This problem appeared in all three versions I have tested.

1, 2 and 4cpu.

If still possible, I would recommend using 2.0.1 instead of 2.0. Despite the difference in scores in your previous tests, they are really identical, except for a bug fix (embarrassing: 2.0 sometimes castles while in check).

Carballo 0.3, Luzhin 0.1, ChessBin 00.61, ArabianKnight 0.48 and
ArabianKnight 0.88 not working. What I am thinking is: a java update
might solve the problem.

to be cont'd
After installing both java updates, one for w32 and one for x64,
ArabianKnight 0.88 seems working well on Arena 2.0.1 (on W7 Ultimate
Pro x64). Luzhin 0.1 moves strangely.

Avi still not working.

All Numpty 0.5pr w32 scores are to be changed to: Numpty 0.4pr w32.

I made an error in duplication process.

Numpty 0.5pr w32 runs today.

Hi Aart,

These preliminary runs are being done for determining the divisions.
No need to panic. In division fights, I'll use BikJump 2.0.1 and
BikJump 2.0.1 w32 or new updates :)

Thank for the tournament.

I´ve got a question. Wich values do you use as reference to calculate engines ELO?

IMHO, this is a very hot topic. I am following an old tradition in
computer chess testing by fixing Shredder 09.1 w32 (UCI) at 2750.

I'll try to outline what I'll be doing in my future tests. Before
inter-divisions fights begin, I should find a simple way for
reflecting engines ratings. As an enthuaistic tester, I need
to find solutions for all of these below and therefore an
automated process for each new engine would be great!

Procedure:

First of all: Execute a sample of test suites, 1, 2, 3 or more.
Nunn2, STS, WAC etc... comes to mind.

Secondly: Set up two or three tournaments each with eight
opponents, 16 games per tourn.

Thirdly: Determine the division of the engine.
Criteria : Which engines could compete, which not?

Like in the case of Plisk that uses all my precious memory : could not.

Fourth: Tournaments, double round robin or one blitz + one rapid

Fifth: Which engine goes upper? which going down? Some guidelines.

Well, I am tired. :)

Best,
