Re: Honey-12 R1

Great news, thanks for this release! Have you heard any news if the SF team or others plan to train additional networks? My thoughts are that having one for KP endings and one for KRP endings could be useful given how common they are. Only question is the appropriate size, would you need 10 Mb plus ...

Re: Fat Fritz appears to be a good sparring partner for SF 12 NNUE

How do you know even update fat fritz engine and its net? The Fritz program would notify you of a program update in most cases. So far there has been one update that I am a aware of for Fat Fritz. Under the Fritz 17 GUI it still doesn't give a version number for Fat Fritz which is annoying! Someone...

Re: BrainLearn

Quick question, if you want to run a series of games from a certain opening position (or even endgame study) to build up a learning file.

Is it ok to click on both of the learning parameters

"Read only learning"
and
"Self Q-learning"

Will learning still occur if both are unticked?

Thanks!

Re: Chess variants made with help from alpha zero article

Seeing the various options with pawn moves altered reminded me of a variant I played years ago back in school, which I'd seen in some book covering variants. In it normal pawn moves were diagonal and captures directly ahead. No idea what en passant rules were! Does anyone remember this? I really ho...

Re: Of course, it is now time for Honey 12

The Rolling Stone worst song of all time was. Ohio Express- 'Yummy Yummy Yummy'. Unfortunately never heard of the band or song. You might know it if you heard it. I know it from a 70s compilation album "Dumb Ditties" we had when I was a kid which was released on the K-Tel brand here in Australia. W...

Re: Short won game with promotion to knight by iCE!

Thanks for posting this, the position just before the knight promotion is an interesting one! It looks like white has at least 34 moves that lead to mate, just letting Crystal 050720 64 POPCNT have a go at this in Multi PV mode in the Fritz 17 GUI. Might be a good position for people to test their f...

Re: ... the last shall be first ...

Thanks Mike! I've just tried to run Black-Diamond from the X86-64-bmi2-noLogos-noBin zip file and I get an error
about needing the mysys-2.0.dll file. Just having a look to see if it is on my computer.

Re: Kai's 2moves_80_100, try it... You'll like it.

Have you got a link for these positions, sounds interesting/curious! I expect the typical response above after
Kd7 would be a4. If one rook is a threat, two rooks is a nightmare! :D
