Re: Booot 6.3 Release

Hello Normaly I don't advertise anymore but I am still impressed with a Top10 Engine beeing written in Pascal! Booot 6.3 jumped about 80Elo from the 6.2 version on my IPON lists (www.inwoba.de). It really looks like Stockholm might see a few very interesting games :D Thanks for the version and good ...

Re: SF130118

I still do not like contempt (reasons above) but as all top 3 Engines decided for it - and obviously with success! - it seems my opinion is of no avail. # PLAYER : RATING ERROR (%) D(%) OppAvg CFS(next) POINTS W D L PLAYED 1 Stockfish 230118 64 POPCNT : 3382 11 83.3% 28.8 3073 100 2748.5...

Re: SF130118

The "old" 130118 had 56% vs Houdini and 60% vs komodo ... but that were only 220 games ... anyhow, it might look good in the rating lists but C20 might fail on a server ...

the old individual result is still online:

Re: SF130118

I am running the same test again with 230118: http://www.inwoba.de/C20.html You can find the full rating for 130118 here in the thread. 130118 got 81%. I am quite sure it will be more with the contempt but the interesting question is if there is a performance boost against Houdin and probably Komodo...

Re: SF130118

Nice example of what I ment: With C = 25 and 40 Houdini got more points against SF then default contempt (and 0.5 point less with C=15 - I would consider that statistical noise). However, Komodo gained at C15 and C25 but suffered at C40 ... its a bit strange and ... inconclusive! Assuming the trend ...

Re: SF130118

I know that the contempt handling was changed but except they havened found something revolutionary new - which I highly doubt - i expect it not help much. Just check my testing of 2016 of SF AND Komodo. No "big" gain for Komodo and its contempt either. If someone wants to use a contempt as default ...

Re: SF130118

You might gain some elo but the performance against the toughest contenders goes down - which might boost them and SF might end up with more Elo but less distance to the second ... or even the first engine! I run an expiremnt on this on 18.06.16 (see news on my site) with mixed results. Additionaly ...

Re: SF130118

Thanks for test. Obviously SF needs contempt 20 for Houdini rating. Stockfish doesn't need anything. It's already better than all of these engines including Houdini. The only thing that matters is match versus match rather than match percentage versus all engines. So with Houdini losing badly versu...
