I have a simple chess variant idea (already published) that I want to test with a strong chess engine.  Does anyone know how to take a strong engine like Stockfish and add one small change to the chess rules?  (or would that hinder the strength way too much)?  Is anyone interested in taking on this project?  I can probably pre-negotiate a fee for doing this, if the engine proves to be very strong.  NOTE: I've asked about this before, but an update: I actually do NOT need a GUI with it, just a list of the engine's best moves (playing against itself with cutomizable setups including the standard opening)

Published where? If we knew what it was it would at least make it easier for the brain to start contemplating how to implement what you ask.

Labyrinth, I've replied in a private message to keep this group post clean, without too much back-and-forth.

A small rule change can have enormous consequences. Strong engines are usually strong because they are very precisely tuned to orthodox Chess, and like any precision tool, are easily wrecked while messing with them. It seems smarter to start with something robust. I am not sure what you could want to know that would require a strong engine anyway.

But if you don't want to divulge what the rule change is, this discussion is pointless.
