Thanks to Vida.
Mr. Vida, please do not limit yourself. Be more sanguine about your engine, and give a bit more effort for the benefit of us, and chess.

runs great but does not access tablebases... did i do something wrong? i have cp4 3/4/5/ i put the dll in the same directory as tablebases and gave path to critter but I got no readout that critter was using tb's... other than that it ran great and won a few games.

DLL should be in the same directory as the exe file.
Try double clicking the exe file from explorer and if the DLL loads successfully it should display its location:

Code:

if the DLL is not found it displays an error code:

on lomger time controls it does not do as well v houdini as several other engines including ivanhoe and fire so i think callong 2nd strongest engine is a lot opptamistic

but in time i believe it will be

possibly even #1

but now maybe #4

an exellent improvement never he less
well done exclaim

Is Critter 1.2 engine based on any other previous engine code?

I don't mean "clone" I just mean like stockfish is based on glaurung.

Thx

Critter 1.2 is a big improvement from v1.01. It should be called Critter 2.0 ;)
