December and January were full of bad surprises in my life. It just reminded once again that life is a chess game too, more or less complex, where you have to protect your valuable pieces from the other color and to achieve this, you may have to sacrifice some of the other pieces to survive.
No matter what number of squares are present on the board, it's a game that begins and ends for a purpose.
Despite all difficulties, i hope i can continue to allocate enough time to keep this "still unique" blog alive and kicking, in near future because it proved to be worth the effort.
This January of 2018, Chesstroid has reached 500.000 hits after 3 years without any artificial support or sponsoring. Today i'm proud of what it has become. To be honest, it's gone way beyond what i'd imagined in the beginning.
Thanks for all those who supported. You're all amazing...
gg Gurcan :)
You are a worthy opponent ... well done
Congrats on 3+ years Gurcan!! Chesstroid is a valuable resource and the 'go-to' blog for Android Chess lovers.Well played! :-)

Good result Gurcan!
have a look at

if possible share only engine binary which works in droidfish
Hi Gurcan,whatever are those bad surprisesalways remember that there's always a light at the end of the tunnel.Your blog has helped a lot of chess enthusiast including me.Cheer up my friend.Chesstroid will be here for more years to come.
I'll give my feedback in coming days,thanks for sharing info about Chess Art for kids,Im surprised that it contains the Bagatur Engine.
I managed to extract the 3 engines and polyglot books in PBchess app and I installed them in DroidFish.
Hi chysiddh.I dont think Bagatur engine can be extracted-at least from what i can see.
The same here I can't extract the engine.
sir Gurcan,acid ape update with senpai2, rodent and scorpio,so please provide us standalone acid ape build.
What engines exactly?
It's scheduled this way already. I'll post soon.
I checked Pbchess. There are Toga 1.3.1 and Fruit 2.1, already in my repository. SF8 build is unknown to me. It's very small, less than 400KB.
Hi Paulzzz, Is it possible to extract "arasan20.4.1" from acid app chess.if possible then tell me how??
Rahul! You can this from an apk,using any zip archive app, then finding the engine and extract it.
Karim ullah!many many thanks to help me.
Karim, can you provide me komodo11 by extract it.
Komodo 11 is paid app , it need licence to check n work , cannot work by extracting it
Rahul,komodo 11 build is installing apk, you can't extract it,you can extract engines only from apps, for example, pbchess,or droidfish,and even from a tactic puzzle apps
download which is latest 1day ago
also download matefinder
latest 1 day ago
i hope u guys find it before me
None works for me, unfortunately
have a look at
works for my device try it
matefinder unable to work in mine device
Go to this upper site
choose any engine and open it
then go to
external link ( in bottom of page )
choose 1st 1 , either it will bring u to this engine homepage then download
or in github goto
search for android then download
hope this will certainly work in ur device
The three engines I managed to extract from PBchess are SF8,Toga 1.3.1,and Fruit 2.1.I also got the two polyglot books which I installed in DroidFish book folder.
Hi guys check pychess website,it has a polyglot book there which you can use in DroidFish.
The latest armFish and mateFish works well in my device.
Both armfish and matefish work on my device.Also matefish from 20171004 also works for me :-)
Lazar, does mateFish shows as armFish when starting Droidfish for you too?
Chysidh! How can you download cuckoo chess engine or chess genius, both external links not working for me..
Yes it does ;-) though i can confirm that the older matefish 20171004 is in fact a different engine from armfish of the same date.I havent checked the new matefish of 2018 but i assume its different from armfish of 2018
Its better to ask Gurcan ,for Chess Genius 2.6.4 , he has used in RAPIDROID RELOADED
( in jar file format )
In 2012 he ported CuckooChess to C++11 and also renamed it to Texel.
So Karim better to use texel chess engine
I use both texel and CT800 engines a lot now.The ability to slow the engines down with the nodes per second option allows me to weaken then to a level where i have a chance to actually play them and beat them.I find that at times to be more fun and rewarding than just watching engines play each other in automated games ;-) im hoping other engine authors add this feature to their engines too..
Well, infact you dropped a link of android chess engine, the previous question was regarding your links, why would I ask gurcan Tough?
keep up the good work gurcan
thanks for the great effort you put in this blog
Hello,sir gurcan can you tell me why ethereal8.85ACH build always win from Andy updated ethereal,see
See latest updated ethereal result.
The reason shpuld be the difference between compiling options and environment. The compiler itself is a factor. Pgo too. We all know Alexei has more expertise than Andy in this task.
DanaSah LimitStrength v.6.5
try it if u find it interesting
but Chessdroid has danasah 7
can u please provide us working link for Chess Genius 2.6.4 ?
kindly waiting for ur reply
Chess genius is a paid app.From what i understand Gurcan played the Chess Genius games manually as he did with ios Hiarcs etc.I assume you knew this chysiddh.Currently Chess Genius is in version 3.0.4.
Chess genius lite doesnt work for you? Hmm strange.Chess Genius has always been 32bit so there is only only 32bit binaries in the lite version.it should work.Do you get an error message?
Sorry lazar , i mean to say working binary of lite
acid ape -chess engine collection n javiolo --chess engine
works well in droidfish
i know u have better known than me
, u can find rodent/risky in it
Somedays earlier I extracted libginkgo.2.0.PIE.so from Fritz 15 app.it can be picked up by any GUI,but it will show its name to Fritz 15 instead of ginkgo,, I don't why?
Arasan also has options of Uci limit strength
It is Ginkgo actually
if u load under chess tournament app , it shows author name
but branding makes it to have name Deep Fritz 15
It seems none of Scorpio works in my device
share ur working Scorpio link
Scorpio is xb engine, can work in cfa , have you tried it?
I have found link for compiling chess engine
have a look , if possible try compiling
Good web, but I'm android user, no more PC here, and they have already compiled Leonidas, for android, did you test it?
Unfortunately not working for me...
I m willing to share what i know.
that link is for people who has done IT
n want to compile chess engine for android
I hope they understood what i meant to say
from the jim ablet android chess bundle
It works best both in droidfish n chess tournament app
But it shows nps:0
Nodes per second (NPS)
i m confuse why that happens ?
but excited to use as new engine.😊
Hold on a little while more friend. Some of us are also getting out of the woods and surely will support you when able and needed.
I dont have any idea how to use
So i replace .exe with arm7
Hurrrray , it works perfectly
glad to have it
it excellent both in Droidfish n chess tournament app
try it , if any idea tell me.
Same again with
nps:0 but works perfectly
why is that any reason ?
Can be picked up by analyze this 5.0 app, then freeze, do you have the same problem ?
Any compilation for gojemat chess engine?
@Karim i dont use analyze this
i have played round robin between Arasan n Ethereal9.00
no any problem
game progress to the end
In Droidfish , i played Ethereal9.00 checkmate me
( suggesting no any problem )
Karim try in droidfish , chess tournament
also provide me answer if it works in cfa or not
This engine is illegal because it doesn't comply with GPL.
It is a Fruit derivative.
Yea its really working in cfa, too strong for me to beat him
I don't use chess tournament app, but it really working in hawk chess app, a two matches between ethereal 9 and hawk chess was checked right now, the result is , ethereal 9 won first match as white, the second as Blake side was drawn,
Chysidh try to find a strong engine as alphazero lol, I don't think if your ethereal 9 will beat bobcat oldest version haha
@Karim use Sugar xpro
Sugar, a UCI chess playing engine derived from Stockfish
It will beat every chess engine even stockfish 9
n its clone , derivative
Now, ethereal9 improved much, need sir Alexie build of "ethereal9",waiting..........
My compilation Cfish-150218.
New patch: Updated to "Simplify trapped rook"
My compilation Ethereal-9 (arm7.pgo,arm64v8):
Great thanks sir Alexie.
Great to see u
thank u vry vry much
I know sugar is strong but if u choose no book...
Alexei! Your compilation of ethereal 9 saved nearly 500kb.. it has the same strength..wow
Thank you Alexei.
Rodent engine in Acid Ape Chess is cool because it's capable of playing different personalities in android platform.
Is it possible to increase the cores/threads in Hawk Chess?
Yes I think hash and threads is possible, but why?
My question from Alexei is, is it possible to convert FB engine to uci,?
Xb I meant to type..
@Karim Alexei compilation are faster n stronger
it shows nps:>200
n also size less
Thank you so much Alexei for Cfish 150218! Dynamic Contempt is very interesting...I'm interested about how they finally chose contempt = 18 over 20. Alexei's compiles are indeed faster; I am getting about 200nps more from his cfish than any other arm build as of late!
P.s. Alexei, were you able to find a solution to the PGO optimization problem?
Thanks Alexei! Seems like this CFish doesn't support Cerebellum anymore?
...wrong place, sorry ;) but the question remains
without book also it beats every chess engine
Alexei,can you compile CFish_Extended_160218?Thanks.
New updated CT800 V1.20
Android version also
New update Cheese
Also Android version
Thanks for both Authors for updating their chess engine.
It feel awesome to use them
Hi, Can anyone tell me how to get cuckoochess for android standalone.
It's written in Java. So don't expect to import it as a binary to Cfa or Droidfish. However there's a Cockoo chess app featuring Cockoo embedded in it, looking like Droidfish. Isvthis what you need?
Yes but requires full knowledge about the code and the two protocols. The change should be done on the source code. CT800 and Danasah are such cases, done by their authors.
Ok thanks sir!
