Re: Thoth, what's different

Hopefully they'll incorporate this change in Brainfish. I've read Laskos explanation of how it can be used against LC and it makes sense. I've been playing Stockfish 10 against Houdini and Komodo with a couple of testsets that reduce the draw rate and Stockfish is really impressive when pieces remai...

Re: Two Computer Match | 2-Core | i5-5200U

How did you get the two computers to converse with each other? I've been playing computer versus computer for years making moves manually.

Re: Houdini 5 has been released

What is the computer limit for the standard version? I have 3 computers and usually like to play computer versus computer.
Houdini 3 was limited to 3 has it changed?

Re: Komodo 9 vs Komodo 10 memory difference

OK thanks Mark as long as I know that I don't have a crippled engine. I noticed that Komodo 10 was using roughly 80% of whatever hash I set. I verified that Komodo 9.42 is doing the same too. I run head to to head matches between Komodo and Stockfish using 2 machines entering moves by hand. It's tim...

Re: Komodo 9 vs Komodo 10 memory difference

Komodo 10 documentation explains how to calculate hash size. My question is why Komodo 10 ignores the 4096 number I set in the UCI option I set in Arena. All other engines including Komodo 9 use my settings. I've read your and other test results and there is no question that Komodo 10 is at least 50...

Komodo 9 vs Komodo 10 memory difference

I noticed that Komodo 10 runs in Arena with a significant memory difference than Komodo 9. Arena reports 4096 for Komodo 9 and all other engines but only 3181 for Komodo 10. I double checked it with Windows Task manager and it agrees with Arena. Is this normal? Can I change it? Under UCI options I h...

This was taken from my Houdini 3 read me file. Maximum number of threads (cores) used by the analysis. Default is hardware-dependent, min 1, max 6 (Standard) or 32 (Pro). Houdini will automatically limit the number of threads to the number of logical processors of your hardware . If your computer su...

Re: Arena - the eternal question.

Do either Arena or Winboard support the hook-up of two machines? I usually play 2 machines against each other with ponder on, making the moves manually myself. Its nice for observing engine playing style but does not provide enough games for statistical significance. I notice in windows you can crea...

Re: Komodo-TCEC

Thanks Larry. One suggestion is to have Komodo automatically use real threads rather than hyperthreads. Houdini 3 does it. I have a quad Laptop and when I disable hyper it goes to 6 instead of 4. I have no problems with my desktops. I mention this since I changed Komodo6 to 4 cores in parameters and...
