alternate logos:
Fire 1.31 (for Windows) by Kranium and Sentinel
is UCI only, extremely strong, fast, and stable

rating:
~ 3400 ELO

features:
bitboards
true SMP parallel search
configurable pawn hash
analysis mode
ponder
searchmoves
multiPV
multiCentiPawnPV
Hyatt Hash
perft, benchmark, and drawboard utilites
validate functions (debug)
multi pos gain (for each CPU/core/thread)
multi history (for each CPU/core/thread)

major changes:
1.31
maintenance release
with Fire 1.2 and 1.3, Totalbases and Triplebases can be configured to autoload on engine startup only via the fire.cfg file, so i've added 2 new UCI options, and associated code, which enables configuration of 'autoloading of Robbobases' via UCI GUIs:
Autoload Totalbases
Autoload Triplebases
id name and id author are now placed outside of 'if
(CfgFound)' statement in static void uci()
this was causing Fire 1.3 to not load in Fritz and CB
Hash size wasn't being read properly if using fire.cfg
this has now been fixed

1.3
new/faster bitboard LSB/MSB routines
mutually exclusive fire.cfg/UCI GUI options
phase-scaled piece values improved
QSearch fix/improvement
MaxThreads = 256
several new/improved eval routines
phase multiplier fix
code cleanup
speed improvement
MultiPV now automatically disabled in 'game' mode
several small bugfixes

UCI options added:
Lazy Eval 1
Lazy Eval 2
UCI_EngineAbout
AspirationWindow
Split At CN
Split At EN
ANSplitDepth
ENSplitDepth
PVSplitDepth
Contempt

Positional Weight
UseRobboBases
Low Depth PVs
Time Info
Verbose UCI
UCI_EngineAbout

UCI options removed:
NMR Smooth Scaling
Extra Info

no ELO improvement announcement here...
but i'm quite sure that 1.3 is better than 1.2 in this regard...
please test yourself to determine engine strength!

1.2
SMP improvements/changes
major RobboTripleBase bug fix
support for new RobboTriple/Total Blocked (Z) bases added
improved hash functions
UCI options added: UCI_AnalyseMode, CPU Load Info, Current Move, Depth Info, Hash Full Info, TB Hits Info, Time Info

NMR Smooth Scaling renamed NMR Scaling
(Null Move Reduction Scaling)

1.1
support for RobboTripleBases and RobboTotalBases added
reads Fire.cfg parameters file on startup
writes (optional) time-stamped I/O log file
NMR Smooth Scaling now 'off' by default

1.01 (maintenance release)
bug fix:
major changes to SMP (to prevent occasional exception error/timeout)
changes to NMR Smooth Scaling
Null Move verification default = true
verification reduction default = 7
GetNumberOfConsoleInputEvents ->_kbhit

1.0
several minor bugs fixed:
no longer occasionally displays score of 0.01
no longer drops a thread after ~16 hours in analysis mode
engine now initializes at 128 Mb hash
movelists enlarged to accommodate really long games
pawn hash set to 32 Mb by default
improved time management

Knight Value
Bishop Value
Rook Value
Queen Value
Bishop Pair Value

Extra Info

UCI options removed:

About:
my goal with Fire was to combine all the best ideas, features, and strengths from the IppoLit family of releases...IppoLit, RobboLito, Igorrit, and IvanHoe.
in addition i have added all the best ideas that Sentinel and i came up with during the development of Robbolito 0.085g3. with enormous beta testing help from the Decembrists and Robbolito comrades, we posted more than a dozen public betas on Immortal223 during the last four months of 2009
(for details, please see the RobboLito page)
