Simplex chess engine

Here this UCI engine exits from memory most of the time (Winboard + polyglot).

Any suggestions are welcome.

Hi Olivier,

I don't know how many fen standards Polyglot supports right now, but it should
be patched to support all fen standards ( Arena, X-FEN, Shredder, etc ).

As you know, Kurt chess engine would not work with Polyglot because is used Arena fen
as default.

Jim.

Polyglot supports both Shredder FEN and X-FEN.

Do you know a place where Arena FEN is documented?

This engine includes check symbols in its moves (e.g. a8f8+) which is illegal so Polyglot rejects it.

It would probably be best to email the author and tell him about this problem. It should be trivial to fix.

Hi Michel,

Never seen Arena FEN documented, only discussed.

Arena uses Standard Fen, X-Fen for Chess960 and different castling notation.

Castle Kingside = O-O
Castle Queenside = O-O-O

Hi Michel

Thanks for the hint ! I have no email address where to contact the author, but InBetween did the trick :wink:
