Try this version: http://www.xs4all.nl/~vermeire/BrutusRND.rar
It is a BrutusRND-version with a UCI-option 'moveRandomly'. It is switched on permanently in this version, now you have your random move generator. You can use all other options that the original chess program had already. SMP, openingbook (don't forget to switch off the book in case you won't want a random opening), pondering (yes, that is random also), all time controls, UCI/WB. Let me know if this is OK for you.
I will probably include the moveRandom UCI-option in my next release as a bonus feature. Then the source will be available too.
Playing against this engine is really fun! I won my first game against a program since years! (OK I admit, I got mated once by the openingbook also...)
Perhaps I can get my son interested in playing chess now. He hates losing.
Hi Stephan! Unfortunately BrutusRND lost on time in game 9 - it never started to play after the external book position was set up. (Completely normal 8 moves opening). Is there anything I can do to help you fix it? Thanks.
Match: Elf 1.3.0 - Brutus_RND_01_UCI.
Time control: 40/4 repeated.
Score: 8-0 after 8 games (stopped after a time loss in game 9).
External book of 8 moves was used (Harry's 8-moves).
GUI: Chessprogram8 (Fritz 8).
