Re: Is there a trick to run engine in MV mode in Chessbase GUI?

LittleBlitzer accepts MultiPV=x command without problems! My short test with SF12 has ELO decrease as follows:

MultiPV=2 -73
MultiPV=3 -119
MultiPV=4 -191

I mean AUTOMATICALLY. So You can play matches and run testsuites in MV mode. Not possible?

Is there a trick to run engine in MV mode in Chessbase GUI?

I mean automatically and always. I haven't found any so far. If I insert MultiPV= 3 to *****.uci file no effect. The GUI is not using that parameter at all?

Re: Benjamin 2.0 - Tactical Analysis Engine

Tactics - interesting always! But I have looked short time ago for CSS-WM test with current engines = SF. I think 10-20 of positions are buggy. Rest are solved instantly in most cases. From your 100 positions I found already 12,21,23,35,46 dubious.

Re: SF12 1 core beats easily SF11 4 cores

I only have 4 cores, so I repeat match giving SF11 also 20% time advantage. Result: exactly same! With these conditions You need 6-8 cores to draw SF12.
