Re: Future progress of chess software in chess

Sure there are retards and oldies in ICCF that can't use SF and have a machine that is having 1Mnps. 95% of active ppl with rating above 2100 on ICCF today use the latest SF and hardware that makes at least 15Mnps from a starting position. So your strawman is quite weak there ;). Nowadays with the ...

Re: Future progress of chess software in chess

There are wins in correspondence chess, and everyone is using Stockfish and other strong engines to help with the analysis. There are also losses, and a large number of draws. What part of the losses and draws is the influence of humans? It is hard to say. I think that very strong humans can add mo...

Re: Lc0 in CCC matches

I think they should go to double sized networks, like FF2. On high end hardware at decent time controls, 384x30 are clearly the strongest amongst those tested by the LC0 group. I have found on my hardware the big networks are considerably stronger tactically. Since tactical strength appears to be a...

Just a quick question: is Banksia 0.38 for MS Windows (Merry Christmas Version) the current version?

I am presuming that is the 'current version'...

Re: Stockfish One Thread Challenge

Perhaps we are at now at a point now where Elo gains will be very slow going from this point forward? If we are, that is not a good thing for computer chess - as far as human play goes , we have a long way to go yet ;>), a few centuries at least. It may mark the end of Correspondence Chess (Compute...

Re: Nibbler and Stockfish

OK, that should be in the next version (rc3 or 2.0.0, whichever comes first). Thanks isready/readyok is working now. Say, I do see rc3, which appears to have come after 2.0.0 so it is the most recent version (?). Is there a way to down load it? Not sure if this question is serious - you don't see t...

Re: Dragon

Since Stockfish is free, a commercial engine must be either clearly stronger or substantially different to be worth purchasing, and Dragon is far more different from Stockfish than FF is. Do remember...it's not just about the 'engine' - one is getting a really nice GUI when the purchase FF2. If the...
