Re: Interesting mate in 8

It appears old engines have an easier time with this - Deep Junior Yokohama, Deep Rybka 4.1 SSE2 x64, and Zappa Mexico II x64 solve this instantly. At least on my 6-core i5.

Re: Interesting mate in 8

Stockfish 1/11 development version took a long time. So did Fritz 17. Houdini 6.03 pext solved it it a flash though.

Re: Fat Fritz Update

After a bit more looking around, I found the Fat Fritz folder. But I have already updated. Other than uninstalling Fat Fritz in it's entirety, and starting from scratch, is there any way to get a hold of the older release engines? I'm guessing no.

Re: Fat Fritz Update

"You can create a backup folder and store the previous versions there, before you upgrade, so they won't get overwritten."

Just what folder would that be?

Re: Fat Fritz Update

Is there any way to retain (or get back) the old versions? Hard to tell as I don't even know where the engines are stored on my drive. I updated to version 1.2 without issue. I hope that was not a mistake.

Re: FAT fritz is not needed

You can also use it (Fat Fritz) in another GUI if Chessbase is not your thing. No, I cannot :) At least not on a GPU because I don't have CUDA and OpenCL doesn't work, and I already have weights optimized for CPU, so I didn't bother. In their defense, I'm the only person around that I know that has...

Fat Fritz recalibrate

I fear that I stopped the calibration of Fat Fritz prematurely. Can someone tell me how to go through the calibration step again?
