Re: New engine releases

BTW, just because WB doesn't complain about gratuitous "move"s doesn't make throwing them around like this right or CECP-compliant. The CECP v2 spec says: BASIC GAME DIALOG (ENGINE-to-GUI) move MOVE Specifies the move the engine plays for the side it is playing for. If a GUI receives from an engine...

Re: Is it winable for white

It's a TB draw. See 7-piece TBs here : https://lichess.org/analysis/standard/8/8/2k1P3/5P2/6Pb/3K4/8/3B4_b_-_-_0_100 click on the book icon. Oops, forgot to check TB ... Thanks. What will be the clue to detect the draw without TB in an engine ? I already divide the score by 3 when it is a final wit...

Re: New engine releases

... No wonder it doesn't work. Since when is "move" a valid response to "xboard" and "protover"? In fact it returns "move" for every command it receives. I don't think this 'release' is very useful. Jim fixed a few things IIRC in his compilation 2.23 from 2009. (The 'move' w/o a move thing at least...

Re: How good is the RTX 2080 Ti for Leela?

Presumably if we keep going down in precision there will be a penalty as the weights won't be as precise. Is the "backend=cudnn-fp16" command something which goes in the command line? What about for GUIs without one? It is just another uci option 0.343: < option name Network weights file path type ...

Re: Scorpio MCTS+NN: What are the strongest nets?

Daniel, I don't understand your output from those 6 games. It looks as if 0.00/72 0.1 is the Scorpio MCTS output for being still in book? But why is there no output then in the first game with the huge (for my taste too long) opening line? [Annotator "19. +1.90 12... -0.05"] 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. B...

Missing game CCCC stage 1 requested

http://talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.p ... &start=224

If someone has the missing game from Rd. 46 (last round): Laser - LC0
with full pgn info it would be nice, if he could post it here.
Then I could complete my cleaned up pgn file for download.

Thanks.
