Re: Stockfish 13 merged on github

Why doesn't the download include the nn-62ef826d1a6d.nnue file that is referenced after you register the uci in the gui?

I don't know if it makes sense or not but I would like to see an elo rating associated with the various personalities. For example, when I select "Human" , am I selecting GM or a club player?

I've realized that the vast majority of chess players are 1700-2100 Elo and my engine would be a perfect sparring partner for them.
That is so true! We need more engines like that. It's discouraging to play against engines that you always lose to and have no chance of beating.
