first results are very disappointing.
Thanks anyway.
This version seems beyond repair. I will move on to 0.42 now.

Hi,
Is the version 0.41.2 downloadable somewhere, because I can only find the v. 0.41.1 on your site ? :roll:
Did you refresh your browser cache?

Re: Galjoen 0.41.2 released

Good luck solving the issue. In the meantime I have started a gauntlet with 0.41.2. Thanks. I found the cause of the problem. For years I've been using the same opening book to train and test Galjoen. This book served me well in the past, but now, version 0.41 is totally overfitted on these opening...

Does that mean you are going to release a new version very soon?
Not very soon.
My latest tests at longer time controls are disappointing again.
Something else is going wrong and I need to find out what it is first.

Re: Galjoen 0.41.2 released

You might want to try IIR instead of IID, it gave me 35 elo, it even gave stockfish 10 elo. It's just one instruction. http://www.talkchess.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=74769 That's interesting. It's also easy to implement. I started a test this afternoon, and after 200 games the result is still ...

Galjoen 0.41.2 released

- The problem with time forfeits should be solved now.
- IID is back in.
- Galjoen doesn't use polling anymore. When it's not its turn, Galjoen should use zero CPU time.
- This should be the strongest version. At least in self play it is, although by a small margin.

After 400 games it is showing -45 Elo.
Thanks for the feedback. I usually test at shorter time controls than CCRL. I see now that Galjoen becomes weaker at longer time controls, indeed.

Re: Galjoen 0.41.1

This version has an extra test in the time manager
and a new option 'MoveOverhead'

It should be more robust at short time controls.

Unfortunately, it loses on time too often ( 4/5 ). :cry:
I have the same problem. Not as critical as 4 of 5, but it loses on time a lot, yes.
I'll take a look at it tomorrow.

Re: Galjoen 0.41 released

@Guenther: yes but I'm a bit cautious, you never know how it performs against a wider range of opponents. @Ray: I'm looking forward to it! @Roland: Maybe you could add a command line option for window size? I put it on my to do list. I'll do that soon. In the meantime you can go to 'gtkmm/drawing.cp...
