Hi Norbert,

Firstly thank you for your interest in robocide! The code isn't quite ready for a release yet (hence the lack of binaries) - there are a few odd things I'd like to change/fix before doing so. Having said that there is nothing strictly wrong with the most recent version and it should be more than stable enough. I will look into putting some executables on github over the next few days.

If you put something.
It seems a motor force.

I managed to compile in windows but breaks when I run ...

Where to compile right?
Thanks, Jose.

Robocide compiles and runs under Linux nicely enough, apparently.

compiles for Linux / Macintosh / Windows etc. can be hosted with the permission of the author on ComputerChess Wikipedia (CCWiki) http://computer-chess.org/lib/exe/media ... wiki:lists - that´s surely no problem.

Don´t hesitate to contact me or Ron if you want such a publication.

I had not yet had time to look into Windows/Mac compiles myself but I have no problem at all with people hosting binaries (with either the source, or a pointer to it, as per the GPL).

In Linux Robocide compiles fine, how Marek said.

My experience with Linux is very little, and try if I am able to cross compile.
Looking forward to see how works the engine by Daniel White.

To compile on Windows with Intel Compiler, I had to add the "strtok_r" and "getline", relocate any statement, ect.
The problem comes with "GetTimeMS"

I had no problem compiling and running Robocide with Cygwin. I placed a binary here:

I uploaded a bugfix compile. There was a missing newline in the UCI options code (ucioption.c, line 220). All the UCI options should now work.

I've added an implementation of strtok_r and removed the usage of getline, these should no longer be a problem. Fixing GetTimeMS (which is now GetTimeUS as it happens) is a bit more tricky. I haven't spent much time looking but so far I've struggled to find a suitably precise Windows replacement to gettimeofday - without man pages its hard to find direct and precise answers (and answers which aren't for C++...). Perhaps I'll take a look at how other engines do it.

I have also fixed the bug in ucioption.c, thank you Tony for pointing it out.

Daniel
