Even though I haven't posted in a while - Vicki is not dead. I'm having huge issues with Vicki at the moment which is taking up a great deal of time. The biggest problem at the moment is the transposition tables that are not working as it should. Every time I implement it, the engine plays weaker...substantially weaker. This can only be as the result of a bug. I hope to have this sorted out in the next week or so...

The transposition table is a very important component and I want that working first, before spending any more time with move ordering and evaluation as these elements share some common ground
