Re: Can YOU compile this engine?

Can you PLEASE make a ANDROID version of Honey-X5i/Crystal-Honey-X5i engine? I put the source code for Honey-X5i into the DroidFish source tree and was able to compile the engine with a one line change in the source code. Here are the compiled files: https://www.dropbox.com/s/4t2vm6nykc9y07o/honey_...

Re: SYZYGY question

I have been looking at a quirk for a good while the last couple of days. First, here is the troubling position: [D]8/8/8/kPK5/p7/8/1P6/8 w - - ... What am I doing wrong here or is there a bug in this fairly old code for handling your endgame tables? This dates back to 2016 or so, so anything is pos...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

In CCRL 40/4 Stockfish 10 is currently around 1600 elo stronger than Fairy-Max 5.0b. This means that for fixed depth 12, Fairy-Max gained more than 1000 elo compared to Stockfish. So the effect of fixed depth is very large, but not large enough to close the 1600 elo gap. According to the source code...

Re: Chess for Android: UCI engine options

About fixed depth matches: Such a 'fair' tournament will make Fairy-Max far stronger than Stockfish for sure! Of course it would think a few million times longer to reach the same depth, but it will ovelook much less. :lol: :lol: :lol: While I agree that fixed depth matches will give a big advantage...

Re: Self-taught AI solves Rubik's cube.

Hello Peter: It would be very interesting to know if their algorithm could actually be trained to learn how to solve a 17x17x17 cube. The state space is very large. Just the inner pieces can be arranged in (24!/4!^6)^56 ~= 10^868 ways. My guess is that their algorithm cannot solve 17x17x17 cubes, o...

Re: Self-taught AI solves Rubik's cube

Can it beat this guy though who solves 17x17x17 cube in about 2 hours ? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ChuKKL2PpU I would like to understand what makes it a unique challenge. From what I understood from the abstract - single goal state - solved in reverse with root node being that single goal sta...

Re: Banksia - Yet another Chess Tournament Manager

Hi,

Interesting project.

I tested it in Linux and it worked fine except for one compile problem. I also added CMake build files to make compilation in Linux easier. I have created a pull request that you may want to review.

Re: Droidfish 1.74 Bin-book installation

To all Droidfish (Android) users for help. I just can not bring the opening book of the SD card to work, on a Samsung Galaxy S9 + and the last Droidfish version 1.74. In the settings for 'bookfilename' the path has to be entered. For me it looks like this: /storage/0000-0000/Droidfish/book/Goi 6.bi...

Re: LC0-Leela0 for Android Devices...?

Hi Aart, Thanks for the step by step guide - I will try it! And I am so impressed because I am NOT a software man!! Thats the reason I ask for simple guides. I could NEVER write a GUI - thats another man! But I LOVE playing chess on a wooden board - using your great app! :D Peter It is easy to mix ...

Re: LC0 For Android!!! History Made!!

Tried the 64bit compile and it worked. ... Weak at tactics but plays an opening as if it is using an opening book. ... Tried to install it at different gui. 1. Droidfish, ok DroidFish has an old optimization that makes it not send the complete game history to the chess engine. Moves in the history ...
