Android UCI engine update: Cheese 1.9.1

It's a bugfix update only by Patrice Duhamel. It aims to correct rare abnormal game terminations. Frankly, i didn't notice such behaviour in Rapidroid yet with CfA.

Note that the package features a book as well that you may use with the help of the config file.

Hi Gurcan. I ported to android a new engine sctr-1.0 (arm7, arm64v8) like a strong one, but we need to check.

Hi Gurcan. It turns out the source of the powerful Scorpio engine was updated in August 2017. I ported it to android (arm7, arm64v8):

Hi Alexei
I tried to run Scorpio with installed "scorpio.ini" file (for 8 cores and 256M hash). CfA reports that Scorpio runs 8 cores, but runs only 1.
Do you know any other way to run it on 8 cores? Thx

Mmm. Let me take a look on that Scorpio. It used to run multi core...

Above remark appears to be true. I've just checked the arm8 build side by side with Jim Ablett's arm7 build, using the same scorpio.ini. Both can read the ini because i see the memory dropping with 512MB hash, but only JA can run 8 cores on my MTK6752. I guess Alexei should check what's wrong with mt setting.

I put J.A scorpio and I do not
understand, I have all the kernels
running or not. How do I know by
default the engine puts all the cores?

Gurcan Uckardes said...

Edit scorpio.ini and install it. Make sure the name is scorpio and not Scorpio. While running the nps should increase with mt 4 or 8 setting. To easily distinguish, you can try to renamebor uninstall scorpio.ini. If same nps, it's running single core.

Here is the corrected version of Scorpio. Install it with the scorpio.ini file (I set it to automatically use all available core hashes = 64 by default);

Works very good now! Thank you!

Oh yes! It does 2060nps to depth 24 in 60 seconds on my MTK6752 using 8 cores. Well done now. I guess i'll have to revert to this build from JA.
