E.T. Makeshift communicator [1]

E.T.Chess, (E.T. Chess)
a chess program by Eric Triki, written in C. The older DOS version, developed until 2001, has its own graphical interface [2], applying Negamax Alpha-Beta, a quite advanced evaluation function, Killer heuristic, Null move heuristic and a Transposition table. The new version, a complete rewrite, supports the Chess Engine Communication Protocol [3] [4]. E.T.Chess played the Massy 2002 and Massy 2004 French Programmers Tournaments and the CCT10.
