Hello,
I want to introduce my "new" engine DesasterArea, started in 2011 from scratch to learn more about bitboards. It is a 32-bit windows application using uci-protocol and supporting nearly all uci-options.
Special features:
You can edit and tune many engine-parms, for example you can make DA a pure materialist by setting all parms from pawnstruct to oracle to zero and then try the tactical positions of the old LCTII-Test starting with Nxd6. You will be surprised!
You can switch off all search-enhancements (except move-ordering) and get a basic pvs-search. Of course, by switching off search-trick after search-trick, the engine will (hopefully) get weaker and weaker.
You can download DA from http://desasterarea.jimdo.com/ .

From the author, Jochen Peussner

this is a pure technical update, therefore the version keeps the same.
Now DisasterArea can handle 4 threads, which is more common for testers and users.
Second DA went 64 bit, which gave a speed increase of 33 percent and
the usage of hash up to 16 GB.
The 32- and 64bit versions can be downloaded from:
http://desasterarea.jimdo.com

Search and eval are untouched except the smp-stuff, so for the
32bit version there is nothing to test.
