Looking for an engine: notchess

Post by pocopito » Wed Apr 04, 2012 11:08 am

Hi all

I've read about the notchess engine in this url:
http://www.maths.nott.ac.uk/personal/an ... ompch.html

But the link from which anyone is suppossed to download the engine doesn't work
ftp://notchess/

I've googled for it but none of the links I've found work so far.

Has anybody any extra info about this engine?

Regards

I found some info in Chess Programming Wikispace, which is great.

NotChess engine.

The author is Andy Walker and the engine was written in C. I suppose that you already read it, but I want to put my grain of salt. It looks really difficult find any info of this engine.

Regards from Spain.

Thanks for the info Jesús

Actually the wiki was one of the sites where I found info abuot this engine:http://chessprogramming.wikispaces.com/NotChess

Sorry for not mentioning it in my first post.

But, as you say, getting the source code seems to be quite a different thing.

I'll keep searching and post any new I get.

I contacted the autor of the engine and he kindly told me that simplicity of the original engine was lost, and that the "new" version (already ten years old) is not "at the moment" for public use.
