Rodent III Android Chess Engine

Rodent III by Pawel Koziol
Rodent III is an open source chess engine by Pawel Koziol, licensed under GPL 3.0. It is based on a much weaker engine Sungorus 1.4 by Pablo Vazquez.  It is designed to allow the user to vary its playing strength and characteristics by allowing the user to set a wide variety of variables affecting the engine's play.  These can also be pre-set by the user through the use of a number of personality files.
Rodent III is a UCI protocol compliant chess engine.

  1. Congratulations Aprijal!
    Both nopie and pgo builds work fine on my tablet.
    RodentIII is interesting because Pawel Koziol has implemented smp (multicores), so we can hope a clear elo gain

    1. Use THIS build, copy 'basic.ini' to '/sdcard/rodent', write your full path personalitie in the uci options.

    MainBookFile=/storage/emulated/0/DroidFish/UCI/books/hist/_31to80.bin
    GuideBookFile=/storage/emulated/0/DroidFish/UCI/books/players/ph-fischer2.bin

    short:
    MainBookFile=/books/hist/_31to80.bin
