New Android UCI engine: Sctr 1.0.ACH

Sctr is a new engine developed by two Turkish programmers, Can Cetin & Dogac Eldenk. It could be expected to hit 2800+ ELO in Rapidroid scale. As my first quick test showed no issue, i'll soon try to introduce it in Rapidroid.

SCTR is a free, open source UCI chess engine written in C++. It is meant to be used with a UCI compatible chess GUI.

- Magic bitboards
- Primary Variation and Quiescence search
- Razoring, futility and null move pruning
- Delta pruning
- Late move reductions
- Internal iterative deepening
- Transposition and pawn transposition table
- Move ordering with transposition table, killer, counter moves, static exchange evaluation and MVV/LVA

Future plans:
- Lazy SMP
- Singular extensions
- Pondering
- Better time management
- Opening book and tablebase support

Special thanks:
- Donna for the inspiration and helping us understand the basics of chess engines
- Stockfish for many of the ideas/optimizations used in our engine
- Many other open source chess engines for their ideas

GET Sctr 1.0.ACH for arm7 and arm8

Hi Gurcan,is it possible to use Arasan's book.bin in CFA with Arasan 20.2?

I checked. Unfırtunately, no. The book option box is dim in CfA.
