Android UCI engine oldies: Stockfish 1.8 and 1.9

Good news for the engine collectors who recently asked for the oldest builds of Stockfish: What's lost is found at last.

Hopefully, Aart Bik has come to help and kindly provided me with these ancient oldies. We are starting with 1.X today. I'll be sharing more soon, mostly earliest 2.X versions. Enjoy the past...

Hi Gurcan.
I hope my friend Valerie, will create a link for the new Pawny 1.2ab. I got the permission from Mincho Georgiev to share the engine with other people.
I also have, another versions to share, but, I don't know how to use DrobBox, plus I don't have a time.
My email is kenpoman2@gmail.com.
Just send a mail to me, and I will send to you other versions for test.

I need to note that even Jim had difficulty to get the older Pawny running stable in Android and he had to use uci2xb in the end. There may be something tricky in the source, specific to Pawny. Good luck to the compiler.

Many thanks for a pleasant surprise!!! If there is opportunity, then it would be desirable to see two more engines from the Aart Bik tournaments: "Crab 1.0 beta" of 2011 and "Komodo DEV" of 2013 (I didn't understand on the basis of what Komodo version it was made). Here the link to the engine Pawny 1.2 provided Alex: https://cloud.mail.ru/public/9ais/qFyBgAMaA

Hello Gurcan
In a previous post(06.02.16) you said there was no andoid build for Gambit Fruit: in fact there was a build in a free chess app on playstore :i had installed and uninstalled it (i don't remember the name and i can't find it again: may be an old version of Chess train and watch) but fortunately i had moved the engine to DF; Gfruit ( Ryan Benitez) is a derivative of fruit (Fabien Letouzey); the engine has a nice play so it would be interesting to add it to your engines list for the collectors.
Here the link: https://app.box.com/s/ed1k58a5ouaqvakp17s0sgdioz5tjk5w
I hop the link will work: let me know if there is a problem
PS: gfruit runs flowlessly in CFA and DF
i have also Fruit2.1 (not reloaded) if you are interested,say me but mind "too many fruits on the table" the table may break

Herve i've already tried the Gfruit binary you'd emailed previously. It didn't work for me but let me see on other devices. By the way if you have Fruit 2.1 too, you can email it. I never heard of a Fruit for Android other than the Reloaded.

Gurcan Uckardes said...

The Gambit Fruit binary i've taken from box.com seems to run okay. Pawny 1.2 looks healthy too. Currently playing 20 test games at 120+1 on Exynos 4210.

Hello Gurkan
Here is the link to my box for Fruit2.1 https://app.box.com/s/n46wzu6qrnij0qlpymqzglp64hp1did0
Best regards

Валерий and Gurcan, thanks for the help guys! :-)

Gfruit, was in the old version of the cross-platform "pbchess" program (now the number of engines for android is for some reason reduced): http://pbchess.vlasovsoft.net/en/index.html . Interestingly, who the author of compilations for this program? If someone needs fruit2.1.pie that here:https://cloud.mail.ru/public/AduC/nSWuZhtVR

Котельников Валерий said...

It is very interesting that in pbchess Stockfish 6.0 also in unusual compilation is used. It is bad that on the website there are no old pbchess versions. There in my opinion were still hoichess and glaurung. Perhaps they differ from known too.

Gurcan Uckardes said...

I've downloaded the PIE build too. Compared to the one sent by Herve it's very similar. Same nodes per seconds too. Although the files are not exactly the same, they might be extracted from the same source. I will think about adding Fruit to Rapidroid as it plays way weaker than others, maybe around 2450.

Gurcan Uckardes said...

Can you extract the binaries from the apk?

Котельников Валерий said...

I don't know whether correctly I understood. If it is about extraction of engines from pbchess, then they are in the assets folder in zip the file. If it is necessary, then this file:https://cloud.mail.ru/public/F1Pv/mu8jhG3of

Gurcan Uckardes said...

Ok. I have done the same. The current version of the app includes Stockfish 6, Fruit, Toga II 1.3.1. All builds should work with arm up to Kitkat. For Lollipop and Marshmallow pie versions should not be compatible.

Gurcan Uckardes said...

Stockfish pie is exactly the same as the official v6. The version without pie (nopie for Lollipop and MM) is an unknown build to me as well. I will add it to the archive.

Hello Gurcan
Yes. It was pbchess: at the time,the app included gfruit+fruit+hoichess
