Naraku 1.4: A chess program created between 2009 and 2011, written in C and based on various freeware or public algorithms (in part also on the controversial freeware program Ippolit). The program has a chess strength estimated at around 2800 points by independent sites such as CCRL and CEGT. It is a single core program with UCI interface and to be used it needs a graphical interface, such as Arena (free download). Do not ask for sources because I do not have them anymore.

Below an example game of Naraku, against Gnuchess 6.21, 20 seconds per move.

Openings.zip: set of 34 openings, to be used in Arena or any other program with support for the epd format. Included are the most common openings (such as king or queen opening, sicilian etc…) at maximum depth of 2 plyes.
