EXchess 7.01b - New Chess Engine Download


EXchess is an amateur chess program that can be run in plain text mode or it can be interfaced with standard graphical chess interface programs like Xboard/Winboard or Arena.  The main features of EXchess are:

- Advanced search algorithms including principle variation search, null move, dynamic search extensions, hash tables, history tables, quiescence search, material swap function, interface with Nalimov endgame tablebases, late move reductions, chess skill setting, and context specific evaluation.
- Opening book learning (off  by default: for play against other computers, this should be turned on by editing the “search.par” file).
- You can modify how EXchess thinks by editing the search.par file that comes with the program. (Note that previous versions had a 'score.par' file as well for TDleaf learning, but no longer using TDleaf learning in version 6.30 and later.)
- You can download the source code for EXchess.  You are free to modify the source code under the terms of the GNU Public License.
