Merlin 2.0beta bug

Postby George Lyapko » 05 Mar 2005, 11:38

In one of the games from round156 of my blitz tournament Merlin crashed in the game vs. BlackBishop:

[Event "Computer chess game"]
[Site "LYAPKO"]
[Date "2005.03.05"]
[Round "4"]
[White "Merlin 2.0 beta"]
[Black "BlackBishop 0.9.7i"]
[Result "0-1"]
[TimeControl "40/300"]

If I load final position and try Merlin to play further it always crashes:
Code: Select all
9110 <first : make: Bg4-f3: illegal piece: 0
9110 <first : merlin: board: 5r2/2B5/4B3/p6p/1p5k/1P5p/4K3/ w - a3 0 93
9110 <first : ABNORMAL TERMINATION
Fatal Error: Error: first chess program (merlin_20b) exited unexpectedly

Just before you'll release new version here is another bug - invalid draw claim(black still has a pawn, so you can't claim a draw, you could only offer it):
