Brainfish - UCI chess engine, JCER Rating=3422

From the author:
Brainfish is a standard Stockfish chess engine extended by a general book format that is capable of handling a reduced part of Cerebellum, which is an innovative chess opening and playing book. In Brainfish, the book moves are only used in engine games, not in analysis mode.

All moves in the published book Cerebellum_light.bin generated by Cerebellum were calculated by using
Stockfish as analysis engine, without using statistics. Then those moves where recalulated by the Cerebellum Library using a graph algorithm that makes all scores in the library consistant. Consistant scores means for example, in case the starting position has a score of 0.2 and a best move is 1.e4, the position after 1.e4 must have the score -0.2. Additionally, some others properties are found, like the best main line of a position and possible Transitions.

Hence, when Brainfish is playing moves that are in the Cerebellum book, it plays like Stockfish reg…

This project is inspired by Garry Kasparov's "Deep Thinking: Where Machine Intelligence Ends and Human Creativity Begins." This fantastic book has evoked my childhood passion, computer chess. I was wondering how hard it could be to develop an engine strong enough to suppress the legendary Deep Blue, so I gave it a try.

This project now uses the new assembler engine fasmg from Tomasz Grysztar. The includes in arm/includes/ or x86/include/ contain instruction and formatting macros for the four popular targets in the Building section. The hello world examples in these directories should provide enough to grasp the syntax.

Chess engine: Chenglite 1.1

Chenglite - UCI chess engine
Author -  Maksim Korzh

About
Chenglite is the successor of Chengine - my very first chess engine.
The code has been heavily rewritten. Many functions turned
into macros. I got rid of seperate files to improve the 
performance and make most functions declared static as well
as inline. The game performance has been improved a lot by
adding a quiescence search to reduce the horizon effect and
stop engine giving pieces away.
