Crafty is a well known chess program written by UAB professor Dr. Robert Hyatt, and is directly derived from Cray Blitz, the chess program who won the 1983 and 1986 World Computer Chess Championships.
Although Crafty's strength (around 2600 elo on the november 2008 SSDF rating list) cannot be compared anymore to programs like Rybka, one of its best recent result was 4th at the World Computer Chess Championships 2004.
The program uses the Chess Engine Communication Protocol, it can be used under XBoard and Arena. Crafy is very portable, it is written in ANSI C with assembly language routines available on some CPUs. The source code is available for everyone.
Crafty est l'un des pionniers en matière de programmes capables de jouer aux échecs, il est issu de la série des Cray Blitz, un programme plusieurs fois champion du monde des programmes (en 1983 et 1986). Il est écrit par le professeur Robert Hyatt.
Son niveau n'est plus à comparer avec des programmes plus récents comme Rybka mais atteint tout de même plus de 2600 points ELO sur les listes SSDF.
Son code source est ouvert et disponible pour tout le monde.
