Re: New computer suggestions please

I know some people have reported issues, but on my old computer I used hyper threading while testing and it seemed to work OK.

New computer suggestions please

Considering starting working on Hannibal again. My development computer is old and broken; any suggestions on what hardware I should purchase that gives me good bang for the buck for running lots of simultaneous test games? It would be a nice bonus if the machine was also good for online tournament ...

Re: Hannibal 1.7

I tried a compile for Windows XP. Message me if you want to beta test it for me. As soon as someone tells us it works, we will include it in the download package.

I'm planning to test ponder.
Default settings are optimal (other than hash size or number of threads or such).

Re: Hannibal 1.7

Hello Edsel, I started a test already. If it gets into the TOP 16 it will throw out the old horse Naum :-) I remember Hanibal 1.5 having some ponder issues which causes a lot of time losses.

Re: Martin on the SF loss on time

It is not clear what "scales" means in this context. I have seen references to BOTH higher NPS, AND longer time-to-depth.
