A fully working gaviota compatible engine?

Postby fonk » Thu Feb 16, 2017 4:26 pm

Hello, new user here.

I've been looking for a gaviota compatible engine for several days with relative success. None seems to have all the features I would desire, these are: Gaviota compatibility (for endgames study), MultiPV and preferably opensourced.

I've try a lot of them, being the most succesful:

- Gaviota itself, which problems are, not being opensource (the engine, the probe code indeed is), weird behaviour with multipv
- Texel, weird behaviour with multipv
- stockfish-PA_GTB, no proper multipv
- cinnamon, not finding mate succesfully, no multipv
- pawny, same here
- critter, same here

Am I doing something wrong? Is gaviota compatibility some kind of "cursed" feature?

Thanks in advance!

Houdini uses GTB files.
Chiron uses GTB files.

This link shows several open source engines that use GTB that you did not mention:

Give a sample position and show exactly what is going wrong.
"Weird behavior" is ambiguous at best.
