Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

run chess engine windows executables because WINE is installed in my machine. Okay, well this would explain the original issue at least. Ethereal as far as I know does not work under WINE. I don't have specifics as to why, but I'm not interested since building a binary for Linux is trivial. This ve...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

Err, I have a few questions. Concurrency=32, on a 4 core machine. Is cutechess actually launching 32 games in parallel under those conditions? If so its a wonder that not every engine is having issues communicating with cutechess. You also said you are using a Linux machine, but your config has the ...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

There seems to be a problem with Ethereal 11.75 with cutechess running at chessowl tests. First I used the executables posted at this post but was surprised to see the partial results with Ethereal at the bottom of 23 opponents gauntlet. I stopped it and compiled the source with Ubuntu 18.04 which ...

Official Release of Ethereal 11.75, supporting MultiPV

Hello all, Its been been about 5 months again since the last release, and I'm back with another update, which is a quite a bit stronger than the previous release.

Let it go, Daniel. He’s not worth it. Andy’s personality defect is punishment enough. Let him grouse with his fellow misanthropes.
This is the kind of banter I like to read. Not the drivel that Daniel writes. Well put Dkappe.

Re: Fritz 17

You were constantly taunting me with the crashes at the TCEC You have a bizarre understanding of the word "taunting". Pointing out that your engine crashes is not taunting. Pointing out that your engine continued to crash for multiple seasons is not taunting. Pointing out that its shameful that you...

Re: Fritz 17

It is interesting that you consider Scorpio to be a derivative of Lc0. I strongly suspect that Daniel Shawul would take exception to this description. He is not alone in his thoughts. Daniel or the original poster? If the latter, then you’ve produced a real head scratcher. Is leela chess, as the fi...

And they use now 256 cores! But only 128 for Ethereal and Fire. No support to higher value?
Was using 256 threads at first. I dropped to 128 to go from hyperthreads to realthreads.
Could be a slight elo loss, but I don't have that data.
