Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

You think any decent programmer could make a chess engine that does less then 1 node per second and play decent chess ?? No, because Mephisto doesn't play decent chess :P I was saying they could make a program much stronger than Mephisto while searching as many or fewer nodes than Mephisto. But the...

Re: Mussaurus 0.1-prealpha - a poor man's Vice

Don't most professional players resign when they see their game is lost? No programmer in the history of computer chess that became champion, that had a top 1 rated engine at some point, or that made software for the enjoyment of hundreds of people knew in advance what they were going to achieve wh...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

Unfortunately I could not find the relevant patch because the last page of stockfish patches is page 18 and page 19 and later pages seems not to be available for some reason. http://abrok.eu/stockfish/?page=18 They have deleted all old versions and only have pages that lead to the ones they hadn't ...

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

Experiment: People have told you so many times that those are not relevant because what is a node for Mesphito is nothing like what is a node for Stockfish? I hold that any decent programmer could make an engine that completely destroys Mephisto while searching even less nodes than Mephisto, but it...

Re: Time per gigatype RAM with NN engines to exhaustion

Why not just using Hard Drive space for that? Like, I have 3GB RAM but 146GB of free HD space, just use the latter.

Re: Mussaurus 0.1-prealpha - a poor man's Vice

It's like facing a much superior chess opponent and resigning the game after a few moves because, that guy was gonna beat you anyway, so what was the point of playing, right?

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

What Stockfish does within 1000 nodes is completely irrelevant because no sane people would use it like that. Basically, if Stockfish at 1000 nodes could defeat Mephisto, then it'd be used at 100 nodes and the question would be why it can't defeat Mephisto, with the same arguments.

Re: AlphaZero No Castling Chess

Hold on, back when the queen was made powerful in chess, wasn't that a radical change that made the game completely different? Yet it was adopted, so why do people want to keep the nature of chess unchanged? Why are people hesitant to add rules that destroy the nature of chess, if that was done in t...

Re: Fat Fritz Weights Files

Isn't Fat Fritz just renamed lc0? If so there's no benefit on making it use other weight files, just make Leela do it.

Re: Mussaurus 0.1-prealpha - a poor man's Vice

I'm a nobody that can't really speak as if representing the whole community of computer chess, but it is my belief that all the chess programmers that I've met or known about, did it because they enjoyed it. The instant gratification is to see the program grow, to see that ideas that they had and we...
