Re: When to check NNUE box

Yes, I can modify source code before compiling so that "Use NNUE" means "Use NNUE only". But that's going to get old very quickly. :wink: So, basically you just want someone that doesn't find this getting old quickly to maintain a Stockfish fork and do this for you? :mrgreen: Folks who don't code a...

Re: this will be the merge of a lifetime : SF 80 Elo+

Ok. What's the trivial change to the source code? It defeats the purpose if the NNUE cannot always be set to active [as an option], because then you're at the mercy of the engine only using NNUE when it chooses. Hopefully the SF team will wake up to the fact that people also use the engine for anal...

Re: Cooked composition?

This is a very fine composition.

It's "White to play and win" not "Mate in 11."

The annotated exposition has "errors" such as 9...Rxh1, because variations which allow White to play Rxh2 are indeed trivial.

Re: Sargon 1978 - Bringing it back to life

The github docs say in a couple places it has a "full width" search, but it also mentions "minimax." The latter term usually indicates the alpha-beta algorithm but I am not really clear from the description whether Sargon implemented this. The basics of the algorithm go back to Shannon's 1950 paper...

The link he gave is the manual page.
It includes syntax and example code.
Thanks; I know.

But I don't know what Stockfish requires to communicate.
