Re: New AMD Zen 3 and Ryzen processors

I also have an old i920 that I was able to comfortably overclock to 4GHz (from 2.6GHz). Over the years I added more RAM, SSD, faster GPU (GTX770 to 1070 to 2060), etc. It was fine for most things. My even older Q6600 (also easily OC'd, but so old no popcnt) would get the "hand me down" components fr...

Re: Interrupting Cutechess-Cli with CTRL+C yields to unpredictable results.

Try running with the cutechess command I used in the issue post. Only 10 of 12 cores used. Full 6 and select 7 men syzygy adjudication for one. Restart and wait. Check your pgn for forfeits on time or other errors if you were using the 32 games at a time results. Regarding restart on, at one point L...

Re: Interrupting Cutechess-Cli with CTRL+C yields to unpredictable results.

For timed matches on my 12 core I only run at most 10 games at once.

I also use several other params (like restart and wait).

Issue with all info posted on OliThink GitHub with a 1,000 game match between versions, just FYI.

Re: Interrupting Cutechess-Cli with CTRL+C yields to unpredictable results.

Yes, use the newer version with the "fi" parameter.
The one I use says cutechess-cli 1.2.0.
Will have to look for a link, forget where I got it.

Re: A Crossroad in Computer Chess; Or Desperate Flailing for Relevance

Just mentioning that there is also considerable art in the NN side of things. Perhaps as my own chess was always so weak, it was relatively easy for me to focus on the programming side of it. I imagine that might be more difficult for a strong chess player. With engines playing at super-human levels...

Re: "It must be a clone of some sort..."

What is exactly the reason to keep an engine private/closed? In my case with Tinker, I would be simply mortified if anyone saw the poor quality of the code. As far as sharing an .exe copy, back when Tinker was actively being worked on, there were simply too many changes to pick a stable version. Of...

Re: MSVS-2019 Oddity

Tinker is private. A handful of engine testers over the years have graciously included it in a few matches. Sergio Martinez ran it a few years ago in the "Swiss tourneys". It was about 2,500. In addition, it was playing quite a lot on ICC from January, 2000 until a few years ago. However, since the ...
