Elektro 1.1b

Elelktro 1.1b - U.C.I is ready.

This version fixes a stupid bug, found in the Time Manager (time.c). On fixed times (without increase) the engine performed the moves instantly. All this because of a variable declared, but not initialized. In addition, I also performed some minor improvements in the calculation of PV and in high nodes.

Now, the engine sounds good in all conditions.

Elektro is proving its strength against the capitalist engines, rising to lead the ranking of tournament organized by Krzysztof Grzelak.
In the first two rounds, Elektro beat, Black Mamba 2.0 and Critter 1.6, playing two games strategically compelling.
While waiting for the match against the capitalist Rybka 4.1, which will take place in the third round, workers can enjoy this beautiful game:

Elektro 1.0b

Workers marching together to victory!

Another small improvement: now the engine is more balanced, and points to the search for continuations positional and speculative.
Also in this case,

This is NOT a new version, but only a slight improvement of the original version.

New Time Manager.

Elektro ver. 1a

Thanks to the new TM, workers now enjoy better performance

This is NOT a new version, but I have limited myself to change the TM.
The current Time Manager is unsatisfactory, so, I proceeded to write a new one.
The new TM is still not perfect, but it gives the engine better performance, especially in blitz-games.

For download, see the Download Page, at the top and to the right of blog page.
