Bullucksa project is an xperimental chess program.

Bullucks is an experimental chess program. It is not based on the Shannon algorithm.
Author:

The experimental part of this chess program is, that it doesn't use any alpha/beta, min/max or any algorithm more or less equal to that. No, it is not based on the work of Shannon, and no; it doesn't pick its moves randomly (oh, and when some smartass does some strace: yeah, there are situations when the program finds 2 or more moves that are all equally good, it picks one randomly - but those are exceptions).

As I mentioned before, this program was initialy released under the name `Detolte'. A lot of time has passed since, and I thought it would be nice to fetch the old dos-sources (for which things were written once), and redo the thing for linux.

This release is nothing more than a recompilation under Linux with all the warnings fixed. Still contains zillions of bugs, is still extremely crappy seen from the c-coding point of view (that's also why I won't release the source-code YET).

What's New in This Release:

Got bored and started coding on a chess-program.
didn't expect I would succeed, 'cause of 2 previous attempts.
Also thought I wouldn't work more then 3 days on it, 'cause of getting bored of the coding stuff.
I was wrong... - this version only contained some "finger-shapers" like memory allocation and some very simplistic move-chosing-code. it had no user-interface, so I had to test the code in my mind to see if it works. Very ... I can asure you. Oh, yeah, this version didn't looked what moves could be done.
