Want to submit a new engine

Postby nitrocan » Sun Sep 10, 2017 4:03 pm

Hello everyone! A friend of mine and I have been working on a chess engine called SCTR:

https://github.com/nitrocan/sctr

and have just released version 1.0:

https://github.com/nitrocan/sctr/releases

I had a couple of questions:

1) How do we submit our engine to compete on CCRL?
2) There's currently only a linux x64 executable, do we also need to compile it for Windows?
3) It currently only supports the UCI option Hash, there is no support for opening or endgame tables. Is there anything else we need to support to be able to compete?

I'd probably estimate its strength to be ~2800+ ELO on 40/4, not sure how it'd rank in 40/40 but probably wouldn't be all that different. Please let me know if you have any questions/concerns, thanks!

A Windows exe will be necessary for us to test it.
The uci option of hash only is fine as long as it only uses one core.
You should release the engine for all to use rather than keep it private.
