Re: A better rating method ?

How about a Power Punch rating? Take the CCRL or any other testers elo rating. and divide it by the file size of the engine executable. Some relatively weak engines could demonstrate a lot of power for the size of the engine. It is also a demonstration of good programming. Power Punch = ELO / engine...

Re: NNUE Question - King Placements

And I am still confused about what the two halves are for. We are talking about white and black, but I thought originally it was stm and opponent. The latter would require quite a bit more complex handling, as basically you would have to flip the board each ply, making the inputs completely differe...

Re: Ethereal Tuning - Data Dump

There are no guarantees that a tuning set can help at arriving at a unique minimum for the generation of PST's. Each test might be converging on a local minimum. There may be at least two major locals. There may be a local minimum for passed pawns, and another one for mating positions or king safety...

Re: VICE chess engine on NNUE steroids!

Thank you for the NNUE example. The code compiles fine. However, the "eval" results look very strange. For example:

[d]3r1k2/4npp1/1ppr3p/p6P/P2PPPP1/1NR5/5K2/2R5 w - -

produces a score of 433. The elo is guessed less than 2500 so it is hardly steroids.

Re: Schooner Version 2.2 Release

Schooner2.2 is temporarily unavailable for download. Surprisingly, I am e-bombed with requests for access, even after all this time. The problem is that Google Sites is changing to a new format and requires a transfer of material from the old site to the new site. During the transfer it wiped out a...
