Re: Ethereal & Schooner seems to be "Big Monsters"

Hi Carldaman, thats an interesting information. In games vs. Wasp (Wasp 4.00 Modern x64 test-run) I saw that Wasp have problems in closed positions vs. Winter. So I wrote different times that the enigne is interesting for me. Of course I need for Wasp testing not the aggressive programs only. Winter...

Re: Ethereal & Schooner seems to be "Big Monsters"

I am a big fan of the pawn structures and the pawn storms that a player or a chess engine can start in the middle game .... But as mentioned before,it's not easy to push your pawns in the early middle game because one minor mistake and you're done,bye-bye thank you for coming :D That's the point! T...

Re: Ethereal & Schooner seems to be "Big Monsters"

B82 is one of the popular opening systems. 135 B82 lines inlcuded in FEOBOS 20.1 Contempt 3, 3 moves after main line ended = 135 lines are equal ... In FEOBOS are equal lines available only (if not an engine goes with advantage in a match). The line for the Ethereal match are in our ranking system o...

Re: Ethereal & Schooner seems to be "Big Monsters"

Hi there, all FEOBOS lines have a ranking. We developed a ranking system for best opening lines. So we can created to each of the ECO codes a test-set with best lines and so one. We are speaking about this one ... Position = 04222 of 33309 (database FEOBOS 20.1 Contempt 3). Position = 04222 = Rankin...

Re: Ethereal & Schooner seems to be "Big Monsters"

Hi there, FEOBOS Book Lines ... all FEOBOS lines = 3 moves after ECO code ended. If we used opening book up to 12 moves, different of the 500 codes are not included. So we go an other way because all of the 500 lines engines should play. All FEOBOS opening lines end positions (for Contempt 3 = over ...

Re: Bouquet 1.8 ....

Hi Dr. Weal Deeb, not an engine from "LCO times". An engine from "Robbolite times" with a lot of technical problems. You know that people like it to jumb on the train. Allways the same if I compare "LCO times" with "Robbolite times" or in the past the other "times" in computer chess. "Fruit times" f...

Re: To contempt or not to contempt

Hi, Contempt is an interesting topic. We can make weaker engines in a rating list stronger if we give a negative contempt. We can make stronger engines in a rating list stronger if we give a positive contempt. So what is to do? Contempt = 0 for all. But we create a new problem with it!! Engine progr...

Re: Ethereal & Schooner seems to be "Big Monsters"

Hi Dr. D., if an engine have an average strenght in competition to Komodo or Stockfish for endgames but comes with a clearly more aggressive style in middlegames ... all is possible. So the Ethereal programmer is on the right way. But I am looking never for endgame strength. Thats is really boring f...
