Re: WCCC vs TCEC Chess Engine Competitions..

Way past time to get off the old anti-ACM bandwagon, Way past time to get off the old ICGA bandwagon also unless they reinvent themselves. Pretty sad comment. The main thrust of the ICCA (then ICGA) was to foster interest in computer chess. They STILL provide that service via the annual mind games ...

Re: Polyglot 64-bit

Is it not sufficient to replace all int's in the sources book*.c which obviously refer to some position in the book with uint64? Possibly. And change fseek to fseeki64. I may take up maintaining polyglot again. If you do maybe you can have a look at -make-book when it has FEN strings. It doesn't ha...

Re: Polyglot 64-bit

So we're clear, can we make a book containing just moves 6-10, with the released executable? Yep, in the next POLY version. You don't need a polyglot.ini using --make-book. Does POLY have the old size limitations or has it also been updated to 64-bit? Remains 32-bit, thus max-size remains 2Gb. Yes,...

Re: OKE - Opening Knowledge Engines

I will be releasing new mea next week with option to set engine options for uci engines, although it can be set when using polyglot. There is also a bug that I need to address when the move is a promotion, that is a8=Q=100, the 2 equal signs would confuse mea. Your opening sets are not affected by ...

Re: Polyglot 64-bit

So we're clear, can we make a book containing just moves 6-10, with the released executable? Yep, in the next POLY version. On another machine, it also fails to work, giving the following message: Can't open file "polyglot.ini": No such file or directory If an ini file is required, shouldn't it be ...
