So having a good amount of RAM will help to avoid accessing the disk too much. There is no black and w...

Re: Open Swiss Edition III

Hi Sergio.

I watched the broadcast today and got into some very long games. Maybe you should think about some draw adjudication e.g. using 5-piece tablebase. There were at least two games with > 100 moves in an endless KRvKR or similar endgame.

Regards, Andreas

Re: Open Swiss Edition III

Maybe you should put a list of engines on your site you are already planing with to avoid hundreds of "me too".

Dann's question was about kibitzing, not just watching....
I must admit that until now kibitzing and watching was the same for me. But it seems that (only) in chess kibitzing also means to make remarks about the game. This indeed needs an account.

Learned something...

Do you have to pay to be a kibitzer now?
That was the impression I got.
I don't know where you get this impression from but the answer is 'no'. Donating some money is welcome but no must.

Re: Removing bugs from bug free functions

Over the years I've been experiencing some weird behavior from the MVS c++ compiler. I have a bug free function the causes the engine to crash. I'm using MSVC for many years now and never saw this. If the engined crashed, there was a bug in the engine. I suppose your function is not as bug free as ...

Re: Stockfish NN release (NNUE)

The binaries I linked require BMI2 support (Haswell or newer, Ryzen or newer if AMD) Are you installing the halfkp binaries, and did you put the 20mb nn in the eval folder? (And renamed it to nn.bin) I als...

Since Nalimov 6-man is available, why do the top engines prefer Syzygy?
This could be the problem: "however the license policy requires explicit permission by Eugene Nalimov" (found in chessprogramming wiki)
