Re: Zenmastur vs Ovyron No it's not another GROB!

28.Kd1 It's not about the fen, but about showing an image of the current board position for the audience's convenience. I guess we can do it like Harvey by using pgn tags and let them see the image themselves by using the >> button that appears below the board (or clicking the last move). 28...Kd7 ...

Re: New Tool

Is there some important software that only runs on Linux that people on Windows are missing out? If not, the choice of OS is clear.

Re: LC0 autoconfigure would be nice.

You can expect this from a big video game but from a some kB chess engine this is an absolute unreal expectation. Why? It looks straight-forward. The engine could also take a look at the time control and adjust her own settings to perform better. What may be unreal is expecting someone to devote ti...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

It does really work if you specialize in certain openings, that TCEC version with learning was still outpacing Stockfish 7 with all its learning on them. Since Stockfish 8 there have been important shifts in evals, and entire openings would die (<0.19 evals were learned for positions that were actua...

Re: When will the chess programmers write an engine that plans ?

As wild guesses go my upper-bound is 2GBs/year, even I have space for that... An interesting part is the "Merge Persistent Hash" option, when it was implemented the idea was for different users to check different lines and then share the files and merge them together, perhaps with one master file th...
