Daydreamer 2.0?

Post by CMCanavessi » Sun Oct 14, 2018 12:40 am

I see that CCRL has 2 versions of Daydreamer 2.0:

Code: Select all

Daydreamer 2.0 64-bit              2903  +22  -21  56.6%  -51.7   745
Daydreamer 2.0.0-pre2 64-bit       2886  +27  -27  52.0%  -11.8   440
I've searched everywhere for Daydreamer 2.0 (which looks to be the final version of the 2.00-pre2) and found nothing. In the official git repo of the engine there's only 2.00-pre2:

Is the other version private or was it a custom compile and never officially released?

I'm thinking that it's the pre1 version. If it were a private version they tested, the engine name would be displayed in black in the rating list, like Lemming 0.34 64-bit is.

Hi Graham! No, I never finished 2.0. I got bogged down with some issues around supporting multiple cpus (I think the best approach is probably just to leave 2.0 as a single-threaded application and tackle parallel search in a separate release), and then real life got in the way, as it tends to do.

I did get some reports of faulty time management under Windows, which is the main thing I'd like to address before a proper 2.0 release. Unfortunately I'm not sure what the problem is and it's hard to reproduce because I don't have a Windows PC myself. I'm thinking about getting a copy of Windows just to be able to test properly. I'll keep you updated!
