NNUE ranking

Perhaps I do not understand the issues - but has anyone done some testing of the strength of various nets? Like Stockfish 13 with default net vs. Stockfish 13 with any other net. All I ever see, and I presume it to be true, is that the default net is the strongest, and not only when used with Stockf...

Re: Stockfish 13 Under Chessbase 16 Question

Right click the engine pane and deselect "Display Win Probability". You may have to remove the engine and restart, but that will give you the display you are used to. I think you would read this current position display as 15% chance of a win, 78% chance of a draw and 6% chance of a loss.

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...
