Chess engine: Stockfish 19092712

Stockfish - UCI chess engine
Interesting compiled by 31m059

Extend castling independently of singular extension 

A curious feature of Stockfish's current extension code is its repeated use of "else if." In most cases, this makes no functional difference, because no more than one extension is applied; once one extension has been applied, the remaining ones can be safely ignored. 

However, if most singular extension search conditions are true, except "value < singularBeta", no non-singular extensions (e.g., castling) can be performed! 

Three tests were submitted, for three of Stockfish's four non-singular extensions. I excluded the shuffle extension, because historically there have been concerns about the fragility of its conditions, and I did not want to risk causing any serious search problems. 

- Modifying the passed pawn extension appeared roughly neutral at STC. At best, it appeared to be an improvement of less than 1 Elo. 
- Modifying check extension perfor…

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: BrainFish X 1.3.2 and Cerebellum Light 190804

Brainfish - UCI chess engine, JCER Rating=3408

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…
