Welcome all, 8)

About:
Houdini is a state-of-the-art chess engine for Windows that competes with the best commercial and free software. The name "Houdini" was chosen because of the engine's tenacity in difficult positions and its ability to defend stubbornly and escape with a draw – sometimes by the narrowest of margins. At the same time Houdini will deny its opponents the same escape routes when it has the better position. Houdini is currently available for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit, for 1 CPU, 2 CPU and up to 8 CPU. Each executable is optimized for the specific number of CPUs, it's recommended that you use the version that matches your hardware. For example, on a single core computer the 1 CPU version will run slightly faster than the 2 CPU version. Use the 8 CPU version if you have a computer with more than two cores. Version 1.0 (20100515) is First public release.

How to use it:
The program has no graphical interface but can be used with any UCI-compatible chess graphical user interface (GUI) like the free Arena chess interface or the commercial Chessbase, Shredder or Aquarium chess interfaces. If you haven't already, first download the chess GUI of your choice.
Then download the Houdini version that suits your environment (32 or 64-bit, 1, 2 or up to 8 cores), copy it to a local directory on your computer, and install it in the chess GUI.


Acknowledgements:
Without many ideas from the excellent open source chess engines Ippolito/Robbolito, Stockfish and Crafty (in that order), Houdini would not nearly be as strong as it is now.

Options:
Currently the following UCI options are available:
  • Hash: amount of memory used by the program in MB. Default 128, min 4, max 16384.
  • Threads: maximum number of cores used by the analysis. Default is version-dependent, min 1, max 8.
  • Split_Depth: minimum depth at which work will be split between cores. Default 11, min 8, max 99.
  • Ponder: have the engine think during its opponent's time. True (1) or false (0).
Houdini does not (yet) use Endgame Table Bases, but has built-in knowledge of a number of basic endgames including KQ v KP, KB v KBP which makes it a great performer in the endgame as well.

Hi to all, 8)

This version work with 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8CPU.

By default working with 8CPU, you need first make change in option Threads of engine.

Rybka does not need a s-e-r-i-a-l

Cheers
Using engines to cheat:
- It is not ethical,
- It is useless, nothing is gained (how can one be proud of a score earn with dishonesty?)
- You will be baned, sooner or later,
- It gives us (the true chess engine players) a bad reputation.

Houdini is a state-of-the-art chess engine for Windows that competes with the best commercial and free software. The current version is Houdini 1.03 (release date July 15, 2010).

Houdini 1.03

Can be used on any not too ancient Windows version. From release 1.02 on these compiles no longer depend on SSE2 instructions and will also run on older processors that don't support the SSE2 instruction set. 32bit.

http://www.cruxis.com/chess/download/Ho ... 2_1CPU.zip
http://www.cruxis.com/chess/download/Ho ... 2_2CPU.zip
http://www.cruxis.com/chess/download/Ho ... 2_4CPU.zip
http://www.cruxis.com/chess/download/Ho ... 2_8CPU.zip

Recommended for 64-bit Windows, the speed increase is about 30% compared to the 32-bit version.

http://www.cruxis.com/chess/download/Ho ... 4_2CPU.zip
http://www.cruxis.com/chess/download/Ho ... 4_4CPU.zip
http://www.cruxis.com/chess/download/Ho ... 4_8CPU.zip

On 64-bit hardware that supports SSE4.2 (e.g. Intel Core i5 and i7) you can use the "POPCNT" version that runs slightly faster than the standard version.
