Essay on swindling in (computer) chess

Dear all, I have just published a little interdisciplinary essay on swindling in (computer) chess. It has appeared in Walter Eigenmann's nice Glarean magazine. For those of you who are interested as well in the philosophical and cultural aspects of chess (and equipped with a moderate command of the ...

Re: Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

If I were you I would get rid of the .exe file (or batch-file). I think it causes more problems than that it solves: - Initial or max jvm memory settings are NOT important unless you want to use a really large transposition table. I agree that setting the initial memory setting higher will be a bit...

Re: Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Thanks!

OK - so this might indicate that the problem is related to the bat-to-exe converter that I'm employing. Possibly it doesn't generat output suitable for Win10. (Still using Win7 here!). So please stick to the .bat starter; I'll see whether I can find a solution for the next distribution.

Re: Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

What I am still hoping for is that somehow I can get to the root of why Arena does this. To show you how strange the results are here is the tournament cross table: Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit - Adam 3.3 : 0,0/6 0-6-0 (000000) 0% -1200 Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit - AliChess 4.25 : 0,0/6 0-6-0...

Re: Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

The problem is that it crashes even with the proper jar. 0.9.70 crashes as well, the 32-bit also. Can it be a mistake with invoking java? The batch file 'finds' the proper java because its path is in the system path. Maybe the exe does it otherwise? It would be helpful to obtain more information ab...

Thanks, Gabor! These results - as far as yet reflected in the CCRL - are pretty in line with the 40/40 evaluation. I'm really curious to see the next update; the current lists are from mid of April.

Re: Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Thanks, Graham!

I'll try to employ a more transparent style in the follow-up distributions - e. g., by giving the folder containing the Fischerle.jar file a distribution-specific name so that different versions can't be accidentally confounded.

Re: Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

The Fischerle exe you provided crashes under Arena on my PC. Does it invoke the jar file in some way? I had to rename the jar files so that they are different for 0.9.70 and 0.9.80. ... and thanks for pointing this out! In fact, there seems to be a big risk that somebody who wants to run the latest...

The Fischerle exe you provided crashes under Arena on my PC. Does it invoke the jar file in some way? I had to rename the jar files so that they are different for 0.9.70 and 0.9.80. Yes - it refers to the jar file; so after renaming it, the .exe won't run anymore. It is completely equivalent to the...

Under Arena I use Roland's batch file while under WB I have this line in the WB.ini file: "Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit" -fcp "java -Xms1400m -Xmx1400m -XX:+UseParallelGC -jar Fischerle.jar uci" -fd "E:\Sakk\UCI-engines\Fischerle\dist" -fn "Fischerle 0.9.80 SE 64-bit" -fNoOwnBookUCI -fUCI Why do you ...
