Re: Weakening Komodo 13.2.5...

Rebel Decade solved this two decades ago. What the engine can do is checking what move it would have played instantly, but then it continues analyzing paying attention to the time control. When it's its time to move it ignores the extra analysis and makes the instant move anyway. This produces natu...

Re: Cock de Gorter passed away

Such sad news.

I met him so long ago, I just do not remember. Probably an AEGON tournament or perhaps a computer chess tournament in Munich? He was so alive, even a little silly sometimes which we need more in this world. He brought me and many others a lot of smiles. And wonderful memories.

Re: Komodo 13.2.5 released

Incoming Komodo 13.2.5.5 for next version in its way to Komodo 13.2.6. I guess this will delay Komodo 14 so MTCS Komodo remains a commercial exclusive for longer :mrgreen: Major number releases are based on calendar year with a major release in the spring to sync wth Chessbase's schedule. Assuming ...

Given Google 's history of faking scientific milestones (look AlphaZero), and engaging with pseudo-science, I have little surprise that most experts are extremely sceptical about Google' s latest PR campaign.
Perhaps I missed something but what about AlphaZero was "faked"?

Re: Komodo 13.2 Release

I look forward to the new version in the Google Play Store. :) It is being worked on. Unfortunately Google is imposing strict security on apps making things more diffcult. The Komodo Android App lets you set some paramamters in the engine App to control it even if a GUI is running it which is a gre...
