Reviewing the bottlenecks in my program, I realize that my hash key algorithm is fairly inefficient. It uses the Zobrist algorithm for creating keys from relatively large structures like an [8][8] array, but it's too slow. I would think that having bitboards of white's and black's pieces would be sufficient to come up with a 32-bit key quickly, but I haven't been able to come up with anything that gives a "random" enough distribution. Any ideas? I looked at Crafty but couldn't figure out exactly what it was doing. Thanks,
