Hi Joost,

do so that everything is fine. I am not a demanding man. So that the engine does not create problems during the game. Moby Dam uses dxp Dam program. As he wrote Ed.

The engine is pretty stable as it is, it won't give you a headache. I still have to check if it works with the Dam GUI.

I consider the NNUE network finished, with the current architecture it is as good as it gets.

There are still some things I want to improve on the engine itself. The search is still very basic, a hash-table, a killer and history for move ordering, futility and LMR for pruning, that's about it. All together this could need some improvement.

I'll make sure that you get the final tournament version within a month or two, hopefully this will give you enough time to check it out.

Maybe I'm wrong, but wasn't the main author of DIOS Erik van Riet Paap?

B.T.W. my engine can only run in DXP server mode, will this suffice to have it run in your tournament? Or do you need something else like a simple text based UI?
I asked the author to make the program available on the facbook. Unfortunately, so far no answer.
