Galjoen version 0.29 available

Post by Werner Taelemans » Tue Jun 02, 2015 10:15 am

I've put a new version (v0.29) of my program on my website.

GUI: still no binaries for windows, as I ran into more problems than expected.
Probably next time.

Engine: it got a few bugfixes and it seems to run stable now. A win64 binary is included.
This version is a bit stronger than the previous version, about as strong as Jan Willem.

Here are some results:

Galjoen - Monarch: 51-114-35 (W-L-D)
Galjoen - Jan Willem: 84-87-29
Galjoen - Fairy Max: 102-59-39
Galjoen - Roce: 115-49-36

Galjoen version 0.30 available

Post by Werner Taelemans » Wed Sep 16, 2015 5:13 am

Some changes are:

1) Gui: no change

2) Bugfixes: two bugfixes in the timemanager, one bugfix in uci-protocol handler concerning promotions.

3) Endgametable for KQKR. When looking at the games of v0.29 I saw that many points were lost in this endgame. Instead of adding extra knowledge, I decided to let the engine create it's own KQKR-egt at startup.

4) In bullet games it seems still a bit weaker than Jan Willem. In blitz probably a bit stronger: (26W-17L-7D)

Thanks! I downloaded your STS program. I will certainly use it when I'm working on my eval, during the next months.

Yes, indeed. I've put a new v0.30 (same versionnumber) on my website with logfiles disabled now. In the next version I will add an extra option to do this.

These numbers look more realistic indeed. I was already worrying.
