Okay, there it is the first public version of Pepito. No readme file distributed at the moment, just the info on the web page. I'd like to know what you think about it, I'm ready to get savaged LOL.

Okay, I see the problem. It's because that "level 0 2 1". I didn't know total time could be zero. That's causing the division by zero when it trys to allocate time for search. Anyway it plays really badly at those time controls. I'll fix it.

Level x y z
x is not the total time. You'd better check the engine-intf.html file in the winboard package.
x means the number of the moves to be made in the time y with an increment of z.
If x is 0, the meaning of the command changes: it now means all the match in time x with increment z.

Hallo,
I've tested a little bit more. Pepito don't like time controls with time per game... If you use instead x moves in y minutes everything works fine... I will let it play some games no against Bestia... If Pepito is really arround 2200 it should win most...

As you can see Pepito didn't understand that it was mated...
Sometimes it crashes after first move...

I have to agree with you. Real low quality game. I've just finished benchmarking my windows version and got 18 less problems solved at WAC. So if Pepito gets close to 2200 (personally, I don't think so) its running on Linux. As you probably have noticed, Pepito isn't a very knowledge intensive program so it relys a lot on the speed of its evaluations. Okay, about crashing on the first move: I forgot to implement games with fix time length, that might be a reason.

I'm very interested in result of this match, 'cause I don't beleive Pepito is >2000... Yesterday I've played 8 lightning games match(40moves/2min):
Bestia v0.3c-Pepito +7=0-1 (1 game lost by Bestia on time in won position).
Maybe at longer time controls...

I've done 20 games 100 moves in 1 min... Result:
Bestia v0.3c-Pepito +11=1-8
After that I want to do 20 games 40/5 but pepito crashed after the first game... (Besides, Bestia wons the first one) But I will retry this...
As you, I think that pepito, the Windows version, is not over 2000...
What also made problems: Pepito often do not use it's opening book... Two possibilities: bug or very small book, I will check this...

I've started a Bestia03c - Pepito match, Timecontrol is 40 at 5 min, with the new pepito version everything works fine so far... (Well, only the book is not working at all, don't know why) The result is impressive, 3 - 0 so far for Pepito 1.01 and there was not much chances for Bestia... When it is finished, I will send you the pgn's and the result, I think we continue this discussion per eMail, seem to me that not many people are interested in this...
