Re: The Busted Dutch

I want to post one more topic since my last essential topic message some couple hundred years ago. Forget about hundred. Some say I have been original. Is that really so? Now, Harm will really go crazy, and also Henk, Eelco (how are you doing, buddy?) and (unfortunately) Houdart. Matter of fact is ...

Could you post a link to where this net could be downloaded (if available), please? The web search engines are useless in this regard.

Thank you!

Re: ChessDBCN

Very nice work. Could you tell a bit more about the 'large cluster' which runs the analysis engine? Also which version of SF is used and will it change with time? There are two queues: one is for move exploration, each position is evaluated by a shallow SF search on multi-PV(depth 12), sieving from...

Re: Crafty 25.3 Release

Where do I find a list of available Crafty executables anyway?

Re: ChessDBCN

There has been a few threads and related discussions about my work on chess, now it has came to some fruition. I have built and documented unified APIs for both chess and Xiangqi, with probing interfaces to demonstrate their usage. https://www.chessdb.cn/queryc_en/ The APIs will provide online posi...

Re: Strongest currently available Winboard engines for import to Chessmaster?

I recommend Fizbo 2.0x64 WB. It is rated at 3000 elo. ...except that it does not exist. The last xboard version is 1.4. Changes in version 1.5, released August 16, 2015 (executables last changed on August 29th to remove default SYZYGY path, and to correct a bug in parallel search; single CPU search...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (7th September 2019)

The only explanation that I can see now is that the 0.1 version is stronger than 0.3. Or maybe it's because I didn't use the better compilation options. I found the original thread which clearly says version 0.1 and it escapes why Jim renamed it to 1.0 after compilation and why no one already compl...

Re: CCRL 40/40, 40/4 and FRC lists updated (7th September 2019)

Hello! I wonder where I can find Iota 1.0. I see it in the 40/4 list. Is it this engine by D. White? I ask the question because I never saw the 1.0 version and also because I didn't expect to see it so high in the list. You are right. Either Jim or Kirill named the folder/exes wrongly. It is in rea...

Re: Slow Chess Blitz Classic

... Guenther : Good to hear that the no popcount works, will keep it around then. I will add higher hash sizes in next version. And look into more UCI configuration options and maybe redo the schess.dft config format, I'm actually not sure what the numbers in it do anymore =) Jon, I found another i...
