EXchess is an amateur chess program that comes with its own graphical user interface. EXchess can also be run in text mode, or it can be interfaced with standard chess interface programs like Xboard/Winboard or Arena. The main features of EXchess are…

· Advanced search algorithms including principle variation search, null move, null move verification, dynamic search extensions, futility pruning, hash tables, history tables, quiescence search, material swap function, interface with Namilov endgame tablebases (disabled in current version), 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).

· Evaluation learning using the TD (temporal differences) leaf algorithm. EXchess will improve its ability to evaluate a position each time you defeat it! (In practice, the gains from this algorithm are small if the evaluation is already well optimized, but the gains are impressive if one starts from a poorly optimized evaluation function.

· You can modify how EXchess thinks by editing the search.par and score.par files that come with the program.

· You can download the source code for EXchess. You are free to modify the source code under the terms of the GNU Public License.

Run via Menu->Fun->EXchess, or by entering exchess in a console.
