Re: New WCCC Version of The Baron Released (Plus Polyglot Opening Book)

I had problems installing the 32-bit version, but then I copied all the files from the zip file, and it worked under wine and Ubuntu 16.04. The evaluation is better in the early phases of the game, and The Baron 3.43 easily finds books move where the 3.42 version opted for other paths. I somehow fel...

Re: Komodo 12 and MCTS

I am not a Komodo customer and, living where I live and earning as little as I earn, so I want to express my gratitude to Larry and Mark for offering the previous versions of their great engine, an engine that doesn't need expensive hardware to work, but plays some exquisite chess on my 10 years old...

Re: Wasp 3.00 available ...

Frank, I read your post carefully and there are things I agree with. I use Wasp mostly to analyze openings and early middlegame, and I find that its analyses are sound. In many openings, it's the engine the most likely to find book moves and to display a very human-like game. I do find the latest ve...

Re: Wasp 3.00 available ...

Frank, I followed your testing of Wasp 3.0 (and previous testing too), and I would like to suggest that you change the opponents for further testing especially since you tested Wasp exclusively against stronger opponents, and it could deflate its rating. I believe that testing Wasp against a wider r...

Re: Wasp 3.00 available ...

From what I have seen so far, Wasp 3.00 seems at least two plies faster than the previous version. The evaluation remained quite reasonable and human-like, and the configuration file is an excellent idea. So far, Frank's testing indicates a substantial Elo increase too. I miss only a learning functi...

Re: YOUR Use of Engines for OTB Play

I planned to answer to your question, since I use only engines as a way to prepare for OTB play, but I couldn't find the thread any more. 1. There's a part of the preparation where you don't use engines: solving problems, reading games without a table, blindfold games help you to improve tactically....
