Re: Irresistible Force Meets Immovable Object

Nice fortress position. There is no need at all to move the rook, Black can simply shuffle the king which is perfectly defended by the knight. White might even manage to advance the e-pawn with the help of Kf5 and the queen but then Black would give R+N for Q+P, and it would be a draw with the remai...

Re: What's the best Lazy SMP logic?

The implementation has changed after SF10. Look into search.cpp (search for "votes").

Re: How to stop monitoring PV's ?

What exactly does "monitoring PVs" mean in your case? If your engine conforms to either of the two protocols CECP (WinBoard) or UCI then it will print lines containing PV information during search, either in the standard (or even extended) WinBoard format or through an appropriate "info" command for...

Re: Source control Visual Studio Community 2019

Looks like there was no problem at all with this visual studio version and source control. I added a second project but did no commit. So when I changed a file it did not show it had been changed so I mistakenly assumed there was no source control on that project. The common problem of GUIs that we...

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney July

The github repo has 11 newer commits compared to the hgm.nubati.net repo. So I assume the binary running on the HGM server is build from the nubati version but nevertheless the github repo has the most recent source, am I right?

Re: On-line engine blitz tourney July

Question to HGM: Is the current source code of your ICS available somewhere, so that people could take a look at it and see whether they could find some weak spots?

Re: Source control Visual Studio Community 2019

Which version control are you using there, Git or TFVC? In case of Git, are you sure you want to put the second project (I guess it is for the executable that uses the library) into a separate Git repository? If you really want to then you could make the library project a sub-project of the top-leve...

Re: PVS, window, and mate

What if White to play. First move of the supposed deep mate sequence for White is a quiet move (for instance a pawn push to reduce King mobility). Best answer for black is in fact a shorter mate or a dramatic material gain that White is not viewing because it starts by a queen sac. That is a valid ...
