Re: TCEC should reconsider the ban on Ethereal

Doesn't Andrew work on stockfish? Could he introduce a bug or something into stockfish promoting his own engine? Doesn't seem right he has own engine and works on stockfish too!!! I for one am very skeptical over this one! Conflict of interest? Is he working with other developers on fishtest? Is he...

Re: how will Leela fare at the WCCC?

Allowing the possibility of 'gamesmanship' in a computer tournament is a little perplexing. Relies on 'good' behaviour', I guess. When money/commercialism is involved, this is probably asking too much of some people. More than a little perplexing. Leela and operator lost on time through their own s...

Re: MRL - The MEA Rating List

I love the idea, but from my own experience having to clean out the WAC test suite, I know how important it is for all positions to be correct and have unique solutions. Otherwise seeing it not find 500 positions, or whatever the number, will be meaningless if those official solutions were wrong in...

Re: Chess Assistant, Stockfish, and multithreading

Frankly I haven't found any changes in the last 4-5 releases of CA - even the bugs appear to be the same. So, yes the perrsonalities is the same, and the sliders is sometimes quite annoying. Development for Chess Assistant has been frozen for quite some time, and they openly state this. Aquarium is...

Re: MRL - The MEA Rating List

I'm quite curious to see whether Leela can fit into that system, being the bipolar gal she is. :-) I don't follow the zero news, what is the downoad location? It depends somewhat on your hardware. If you have an Nvidia GPU, preferably not too old, then you will enjoy hugely more performance than wi...

Re: MRL - The MEA Rating List

This new type of rating list is inspired by MEA a tool developed by Ferdinand Mosca processing the 1500 theme based STS positions created by Dann Corbit and Swaminathan Natarajan. As an experiment shows the results are reasonable in sync with the CCRL 4/40 rating list and insipired me to give the S...
