Re: New mate solving test

We are all free to chose:
I may give.
I may take.
Jouni has given a lot.
If he keeps everything new and interesting from now to eternity, his balance sheet is still above the water.

Re: ShashChess 16 on Mac M1

That is tragic, because it makes pure gold on Windows.
After I run a long analysis, the experience.bin file gives shashchess 16 and ENORMOUS advantage at traditional time controls.

Re: larger nets for SF?

Because Fat Fritz has put fear into their hearts. This usurper has beaten us with very, very, very little resources: http://www.cegt.net/40_40%20Rating%20List/40_40%20All%20Versions/rangliste.html Now, they know they were wrong, but they are careful to react because they don't want to look stupid.

Re: Experience.bin for Shashchess

I saw a utility to do that once, but it did not work on the files I tried because the format changed. On the other hand, the format of the data is extremely simple so it should be really easy to write a tool to merge them. My personal preference would be to simply keep the deepest data and overwrite...

Re: Can any engine find the winning move here ?

I agree with Mike. We do not have to agree with a poster. And provocative posts can be interesting. Some posts can be annoying. But a post should never be censored for being annoying, not matter how annoying. That is a sign that it is causing us to think. Sure, there are purely vacuous posts. But ar...

Re: The mailbox trials

This stuff is really interesting. I do have one request: Post each incremental update of the generator after each change. Then (being lazy, as I am) I can do diffs and consider those when I read your posts. BTW, the most interesting sequence in years. I do hope it somehow makes it to the chess progr...

Experience.bin for Shashchess

https://drive.google.com/file/d/11RuFBvCmZBCzY2ZKqoHctcOcGvu9QMnw/view?usp=sharing I analyzed 12,000 really important positions (the most commonly played positions), and 1000 useless ones (named openings that are rarely or never played). Depth is generally in the 36 to 60 ply range, with the average...

Re: Attachment

It simply does not work any more.
I usually save the object to google share or OneDrive or some other publicly viewable object store and then post a link.
Sometimes, I post a message with an attachment in the Rybka forum and post a link to it here.
In any case, you are right. Attachments don't work.
