Re: Question for Ed Shroder

Wouldn’t that be better said in your shiny new forum? Sound like it is relevant to you, and the gang. Since you start this nonsense. And are still here post about the shiny new forum. :lol: Oh, I’m not at your level. I could never hope to be worthy of your shiny new forum. I was just looking out fo...

Re: Question for Ed Shroder

Sounds like sour grapes. No more Mr. Shut it down. Ed shut you down. :lol: Your memory has a strange twist. I urged the CTF gang to set up their own shop from the beginning. We even allowed them a grace period of a week for shutting it down so that they could discuss such a move. I am really happy ...

Took a quick peek over there. First thoughts? What a marvelous and even tempered group of fellows. I’m sure Ed is overjoyed that he has attracted the cream of the crop of talkchess.
I guess he is since I was invited. 8-)
Yes, your participation speaks volumes. Congratulations. :D

Re: Question for Ed Shroder

And they already started fighting ! A worthy CTF successor, for sure. :lol: They seem particularly pissed off that people calling you names were not treated with the respect they thought that deserved. It was really insulting to them to be publicly told they couldn't do that; they feel more at home...

Re: Dragon versus Nakamura

I’d suggest using a smaller net. You can turn the knob a lot more in terms of nodes and nps at the bottom end. For low level play I even use 16x2 nets that at 4500 nodes will get you around 2200 blitz.

Re: New engine releases 2020

P.S. On a more useful note, I’ve started using Tord Romstad’s excellent Chess.jl library (https://github.com/romstad/Chess.jl), though it has one major castling bug that I’m working to fix. Pretty speedy for stuff like qsearch. :D I'm glad you like it! Could you please let me know what that that ca...

Re: New engine releases 2020

Ill note that you failed to deny the claims. You mean the baseless speculations? Note what you like Andrew, but your rage posts are somewhat tiring. Rage? What. Also, interesting phrase, "baseless speculations". "baseless accusations" is a thing, but baseless speculations? That is new. If something...

Re: New engine releases 2020

Whoa. I believe you totally misintrepret my words (perhaps a little too much speculation on my part in all fairness) :D I wish precisely the opposite! I'm very hopeful that the networks used in Komodo NNUE were trained using original training code and a unique network architecture. In fact, a separ...
