check, p27, mate, 1reply, and recap

My plan, is to try 'fractional' extensions again.

Some pseudo code with extension stuff:

- Code: Select all
`search(alpha, beta, depth, extensions){`

if(is_one_reply_to_check) extensions += 1rep;

if(is_mate_threat) extensions += mate;

for each move{

domove()

ext_move = extensions

if(is_check) ext_move += check;

if(is_p27th) ext_move += p27th;

if(is_recap) ext_move += recap;

if(ext_move >= ONEPLY){

extend = 1;

ext_move -= ONEPLY;

if(ext_move >= ONEPLY) ext_move = 3 * ONEPLY / 4;

}

val = -search(-beta, -alpha, depth+extend-1, ext_move)

.....

}

}

Does this basically make sense, or am I missing something?
