POSIX support added (using some code from here), some embarrassing bugs fixed. Source & Makefile only - I'm on Linux at the moment.

This download is missing the engine exe to be installed and played.
Can this be corrected.

>Source & Makefile only


Right now, I don't have a Windows computer with a compiler.

No problem.Will just have to wait.Thanks

In this case Rybka is most likely not in danger... ;->
Parent - - By solis (**) Date 2009-07-05 14:56
I have been doing some testing with Toga engines and that fact is correct.Only, if you have really improved the engine, but will see.Is wait going to be worthwhile ?
Parent - - By Vempele (Silver) Date 2009-07-05 14:58
It's not intended to challenge Rybka, it's just a parody of similar titles from long ago.

(Also, the previous version was released before Rybka 960 went public)
Parent - - By solis (**) Date 2009-07-05 15:04
Right now nobody can challenge Rybka but at least if this engine is going to be stronger that the engines on Toga II forum.
They are trying very hard to improve Toga engines.
Is this engine going to use more that one core?
Parent - - By Vempele (Silver) Date 2009-07-05 15:06
The point of this version is that it can play Chess960. There are also some improvements over 1.4 beta 5c but I'm not sure how much strength they add.
Parent - By solis (**) Date 2009-07-05 15:09
Vempele, thanks for the information.

:-) How about Microsoft's freebie? OK, I'm sure someone else will compile it...

> :-) How about Microsoft's freebie?


I'm using a computer that takes 5 minutes to start up Windows XP. Will be interesting to see how long it takes to compile Toga. :)

Install finished. And now for the reboot...
Parent - By Vempele (Silver) Date 2009-07-05 17:20 Edited 2009-07-05 17:28
5 minutes waiting for Opera to exit cleanly, 2 minutes for the shutdown-part of the reboot, etc...

19 seconds to compile it with full optimization. The fuck?

29 seconds to rebuild after I realized I had linked the runtime library as a DLL. Might have something to do with disk cache - I exited Visual Studio before doing this.

Posting the slightly updated version (fixing a bug noted by Eelco de Groot that I'd forgotten about and making the thread count configurable).

Sources and 32-bit exe this time.

Sorry for my newbie question :
Can this engine run under Fritz GUI ?

regards
Parent - By Vempele (Silver) Date 2009-07-05 19:42
I think older versions didn't allow non-CB engines to play Chess960 (I might be wrong), but the Fritz 11 (Rybka 3) GUI should work.

And it can play normal chess under any UCI GUI, of course.

Ohh, not again... :-D

Sorry for being late, but congrats Teemu for this update. I had thought you forgot about it.

Thanks.

Anybody else have the problem that it's slow as molasses?

Sources only, this time. An executable will follow when I find out why its nps is, at best, about 20% of what it's supposed to be.

-Arena O-O-O fix.
-searchmoves.
-That's all, nothing strength-related.

Vempele, what does CMLX stand for?

Regards
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) Date 2009-07-10 08:14
960 in greek or latin.

(it's roman numerals, but I like being wrong just to annoy correction Nazis :yell:)

I was just about to ask if it's not Roman numerals, and I saw your next sentence. Okay it makes sense.
