Crafty is a rapidly developing chess engine with more and more features
being added regularly.  It can play, analyze, and even annotate games
for you.  Crafty can utilize tablebases; these are available for FreeBSD
in the related ports.
The files bitmaps.tgz and sound.tgz are available in your doc directory,
usually /usr/local/share/doc/crafty.  The bitmaps are for html
annotations performed by crafty - they should be unpacked into the
directory you normally analyze games into, and all should be fine...
The sounds are for move announcements.  Unpack the archive somewhere,
and have a look at the 'speak' script to customize for your use, if
desired.
22.1 -> New "skill" command that can be used to "dumb down" crafty.
"skill <n>" where n is a number between 1 and 100.  100 is max (default)
skill.  Skill 70 will drop the playing Elo by about 200 points.  Skill
50 will drop it about 400 points.  The curve is not linear, and the
closer you get to 1, the lower the rating.

This package is set to allow per-user config files, and a shared books
directory.  To accomplish this, crafty is setgid nobody, and the books
and learning information are owned by the user 'nobody.'
The location values are tunable, see message when make is issued.
If you have an SMP system, add a line to your ~/.craftyrc file to the
effect:
smpmt=2 (or however many cpus you have)
Do not set this higher than you really have, or performance will
actually drop.
