Now we need to know if Luzhin and Chesster are the same engine... :) All I can see is both jar files are about the same size. Any opinions ?

Interesting, when I investigated this case yesterday for a new update of my chronology pages I also noticed
that the authors nick for both sites was the same 'lacungus', which seems to be Anton Emelyanov.
I also noticed a similar size for both java downloads, but I had no time yet to look closer at this.
May be he just abondoned one site/name and gave it a different name. I will wait until it is clear if
it is just one or two projects...

Merry Xmas,
Guenther

Comparing the two >

There a few extra files in 'chesster-winboard.jar'

ConsoleReadingStrategy.java
RandomStrategy.java
SimpleMoveValidator.java

The rest are pretty much identical with only strings changed (luzhin > chesster).

Looking at the code I would guess Chesster came first and Luzhin afterwards.

In Luzhin:
Code: Select all
public static Luzhin getChesster() {
      return chesster;


In Chesster:
Code: Select all
public static Chesster getChesster() {
      return chesster;
