Re: mmt Vs. Ovyron (G4 D5 BG2)

While my opponent thinks, I couldn't resist making a chessmap for the Grob, zooming in this part of the A00-A03 ECO codes : https://funkyimg.com/i/31JjS.png ENHANCE! https://funkyimg.com/i/31JjR.png I always wondered if this method could be used to rank chess moves, but the biggest box after 4 half-...

Re: BrainLearn

Aha, I've beaten people on Playchess that use Brainlearn and I also don't get why they apparently show sub 1.00 scores in a lost position. Perhaps it's a bug? No way I'm using it for games, at least.

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Ovyron, yes, an IP address box did display, but I had no one to connect to at the time so I abandoned the process. Yeah, I've used Netplay to connect and play with other people similarly, perhaps it's the same process? What you'd need to do is go to a website like this: https://www.whatismyip.com/ ...

Re: mmt Vs. Ovyron (G4 D5 BG2)

What is this ChessDBCN? Can you tell me a bit about it? It's a live online database: https://www.chessdb.cn/queryc_en/ You can explore the chess lines that it has and request analysis for the moves that it doesn't; it will expand the moves you insert automatically and backsolve their scores to prop...

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

Oh, do any of those options give you a box to insert some I.P. address somewhere? Presumably one person would give their IP to another one and host a session so they can play over the Internet.

Re: Classes of chess pieces for chess variants

On the Zillions menu, 'Net' seems to be where a user can create or join a session. I could be wrong on this, but I'm pretty sure that's only for playing via LAN over a home network (you have two computers with you and you connect them to a modem and people play Zillions on their own screen at home ...

Re: Why is MultiPV so slow?

If you want a quick approximation for all moves, and the bad moves not hurting too much the search of the better ones, you need to reduce the searched depth of bad moves, according to eval and/or move number. Yes, I suggested Decreasing MultiPV . In practice, though, using that and adjusting yourse...

Re: mmt Vs. Ovyron (G4 D5 BG2)

Oh, in that case Komodo's eval is pure nonsense.

Re: mmt Vs. Ovyron (G4 D5 BG2)

Komodo 13.2, depth 29: -1.06 ... exd5. Things look okay for White so far, don't they? Huh, try matching that Komodo depth 29 against some Stockfish depth 28 (for instance) and see how the fish destroys the dragon with ease? 1. g4 d5 2. Bg2 Bxg4 3. c4 c6 4. Qb3 e6 5. Qxb7 Nd7 6.
