Tweak KingFlank when king is on edge files This tweak excludes files D and E from the KingFlank bitboard when our king is on the A or H files respectively. As far as I can tell, this affects two things: the calculation for CloseEnemies and PawnlessFlank. Aside from filtering out slightly less relevant attacks in the flank, I suspect this helps with king prophylaxis, avoiding attacks and moving towards the center when the pawns start to come off. STC LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) [0.00,4.00] Total: 56755 W: 12881 L: 12489 D: 31385 LTC LLR: 2.95 (-2.94,2.94) [0.00,4.00] Total: 130205 W: 22536 L: 21957 D: 85712 How to continue: Tweaking the two bonuses mentioned might give some gain, although as far as I can tell, CloseEnemies is very sensitive to even small changes.
