Elektro 1.1c (Igorrit Derivative)

Elektro 1.0b - Igorrit derivative


First: this is only a programming exercise, done for mere personal entertainment.
Second: Igorrit, in my opinion, it was a more interesting engine than Ivanhoe. I have tried to change and improve this interesting project.
After much work, the engine has been completely overhauled, in almost all its parts. I can now say, with security, that Elektro is not the usual Ippolit-clone, but is now an (almost) independent engine.

My dream: to be able to get closer to strength of the three current leaders (StockFisch, Komodo, Houdini).
Unfortunately, the engine it is still not as strong as I expected. There is still much work to do!

P.S. In homage to the Ippolit's authors, I gave to the blog a graphic style "old USSR"

--------------
Changes from the original code:

translation from Italian to English (work long and boring!);
correction of some errors found in various parts of the source code;
correction and improvement of the multi-thread for Windows;
improved search functions;
complete rewrite of the Time Manager (thanks, Gull!);
several changes and improvement in the evaluation functions;
improvement of the functions of cut-nodes;
improvement (I hope!) and change of PV calculation;
added functions and tables for the evaluation of various simple end-games;
To do:
improve the Time Manager (primary goal!);
improve the evaluation functions;
add the Table Bases (Robbo, Syzygy, Gaviota...?);
improve the evaluation of some frequent end-games;
--------------
Elektro 1.0b

Another small improvement: now the engine is more balanced, and points to the search for continuations positional and speculative.
Also in this case,
This is NOT a new version, but only a slight improvement of the original version.
