1048ms for perft 6!
Pretty good, considering I started this whole ordeal with an initial time of 120s
I've been working so hard on it that I needed to share, even though it is essentially useless for an actual engine.
I still have some optimization ideas that could perhaps give me 1020ms. I think I will set my goal on going under 1s, and then finally improve my search engine lol.
Is there any documentation about the fastest engines out there? There doesn't seem to be much love for speed, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

Could you educate me with this following question: are things done with bitboards impossible with other structures? I reckon it's less memory consuming, but aren't 64bits essentially boolean arrays? Not trying to be a smartass, genuine question.
