Re: Confused by perft results: VICE in C vs VICE in JS

The problem is - HOW ON EARTH your JS version is only 1 second slower with "tricky position" (as you called it in your videos) compared to the C version??? Well, there is the fact that the C code is not optimised at all, so you may not be comparing the best case of each. I'll take a look at the vid...

Re: Confused by perft results: VICE in C vs VICE in JS

Hi guys I've just made a following test: 1. VICE in C perft test depth 4: 4085603 nodes visited in 1577ms 2. VICE in JS perft test depth 4: 4085603 leaf nodes visited 2143ms JS version is slightly slower while JS code seems to be a port of C code. How on earth on that possible??? Just for compariso...

Re: Chess programming on YouTube: NOBODY CARES?

Hey what's up guys, Code Monkey King's (My YouTube nickname) here. Nice, just had a quick look and I'll make sure to watch them as they arrive. All the best with it! One of the wonderful things about CC is the contributions people make - be it from the top engines and authors, or the lower rated si...

Re: Mussaurus 0.1-prealpha - a poor man's Vice

** snipped ** Don't give up with it. There's no need to pressure yourself, no one will laugh, point the finger or anything. In fact, this community is the opposite - it's very helpful, testers and programmers alike. However, do make sure you take advice on board - and that usually starts with makin...

Re: Mussaurus 0.1-prealpha - a poor man's Vice

Thank you for checking the code. I noticed one - the null move pruning doesn't take zugzwang into account, but until I find a satisfying condition for zugzwang it will be buggy. If you followed VICE exactly you'll have the condition that the side to move has to have a "big piece" aka non-pawn, non-...

Re: A book on machine learning

This is very good. "Make Your Own Neural Network" by Tariq Rashid. A good starting point. It doesn't cover Convolutional NN but all the basics are there. I'll second this, for a non academic scatter brain like me, this book explained things really well. I've managed to complete a few home projects ...
