Dreamer is a bitboard engine with table-driven move generation, and applies alpha-beta with transposition table and iterative deepening. Its evaluation considers material, development, pawn structure, bad bishop, some rook bonuses, and king tropism.


DreamChess is an XBoard compatible OpenGL user interface with 2D and 3D graphics boards, packaged under the same license and suited to play versus Dreamer or other compatible engines like Crafty and GNU Chess [4].
