Hello Gurcan.Have a question.Do you know if some or all of those wonderful arm8 compiles made by Aprijal in the last 12 months (Stockfish 8 Gull 3.0 Protector, Vajolet etc) were made with static libraries? I ask because there were some really good engines compiled and wanna know if they are Universally compatible going forward? Otherwise we have to rely on the arm7 versions I guess..

I really don't know. I only have a MTK6752 processor to run arm8 builds and i never had issues with AP builds. Maybe someone with Snapdragon can answer. However i don't remember that anyone complained about them. Based on that, we can assume they were compiled using -static switch.

Yes.lets hope so..And we now have Alexei doing a great job with compiles ! BTW great job in what you've accomplished so far with Chesstroid.It really is the " go to"

BTW Gurcan I just noticed yesterday that Senpai arm7 that comes with Chess engines collection (OEX) from Acip Ape Studios is at least 25% faster than Senpai (arm5JA) on my galaxy s7.Should be universally faster.Are you still using Senpai(arm5JA) in rapidroid.? Its not a big deal but it should play stronger..

Gurcan Uckardes said...

In Rapidroid it's still JA arm5. It had defeated the original and JA arm7 was a big disappointment. Regarding Ape arm7 build, yes it looks way faster. I'll introduce that one. PS: That's not the case with Arasan 20.2 APE. It loses convincingly to Aprijal's 20.0.

Gurcan Uckardes said...

Glad to hear that. But Alexei is the one to applause. He doesn't let us miss Aprijal and Jim.

Yes Arasan 20.2 Ape actually runs in a buggy manner on my mobile.Every now and then it only displays a evaluation no variation and as its about to play a move i get engine terminated error etc.i cant use the engine.Anyway Senpai should gain at least 15 points now as it closes in on 3000 elo ;-)
