Re: SF NNUE Problem

Hello Ahmet,

All other parameters are set correctly. They are identical to the parameters for standard Stockfish, except of course the NNUE box is checked and the path to the .bin is set.

Sincerely,

SF NNUE Problem

Hello All, Today I downloaded the August 2 Stockfish NNUE iteration from the abrok site, plus the 20200728-2138.bin. They're now installed on my PC and the parameters are set. Yes, the NNUE box is checked. However, with all cores activated, Stockfish NNUE runs at just 1/3 the kN/s speed of standard ...

Re: Clocks missing on Fritz 17?

I have a similar problem. Until a few weeks ago, my Time Clocks always worked in Infinite Analysis mode. Now they don't work at all. I suspect a Fritz GUI upgrade stopped them for some reason. Nonetheless, I'd like to have my clocks operate during Infinite Analysis. This is helpful when I see the la...

Re: TCEC confusion

Thanks, Terje and Erin!

Great points that you've explained very clearly. Somehow I just didn't connect the dots well. Still, I think TCEC could be clearer in what they're doing, and why.

All the very best,

Re: TCEC confusion

Thanks Erin!

However, was that explanation clearly presented at TCEC? I didn't see it. Perhaps that explanation was buried somewhere on the site, but it was not visible to this observer. In chatting with several others, the situation was equally unclear to them too.

All the best,

Re: TCEC confusion

OK gents, so what's happening in TCEC now? TCEC's communication is historically largely non-existent. And when they do communicate, it's unclear. TCEC, in small print in the upper right corner now tells us it's Super-Final 18. Great! That's some help, relative to prior non-communication. Thanks Mich...

Re: TCEC confusion

Thank you Roman, Like Dann, I too was confused by the sudden change. As impressive as TCEC is, they do a TERRIBLE job communicating to the public: the recent past, what they're doing presently, and what's next. But that's just the "what". They also fail to communicate the "why", such as: why the tim...

Re: Interesting game on TCEC

The Princess Bride! Well done, Dann. :-)

Jonathan, the first four games were decisive as I watched game 4. It's possible the 5th was too, but I went to bed and missed it.

Regards,

Re: Komodo - is it worth it.

Hello All, I agree with Dann. Those of us who love computer chess need to support it, and that means supporting commercial chess engine developers. Since Komodo is the only one left standing, then it should receive our total support. We all benefit from having Komodo performing versus other engines,...

Re: New computer chess forum

Hello Guenther, I will miss your posts here as I perceive you as an intelligent/informed computer chess enthusiast. Since I'll miss you, I visited your new site. As a result, I have constructive criticism. Like TalkChess presently, you allow Fake Names . In fact, the only posts presently on your sit...
