Improve Speed (But not Optimize Strength) But it Looks like Stockfish 5 . The Openings Book doesn't work in Droidfish now (old BookDF12.ctg , cto & ctb). In new update , im not sure about UCI options to improve strength for Stockfish (Cuckoochess & Texel 1.05a8 32-bit [why not 64-bit?] Is not useful , but still enjoyable) and also the strength still not improving (not weak). Is this Stockfish 64-bit Version?
