Re: Derivatives are real programs too

And why should I have determination if all reward goes to somebody who come out from nowhere, make little modification to Fruit/Toga, and claim it was his own engine? Computer chess is already dead. Take my engine for example. Why should I work hard to get a few dozen elo points improvement if someo...

Re: Derivatives are real programs too

And what's your definition by "Illegal"? If, author of El Chinito and Fafis stated that his engine based on Crafty, should they called illegal clone or derivative? Based on norm schmid definition, clone is engine that just recompile from other engine without changing anything. That's not the case wi...

Re: Derivatives are real programs too

Why derivative should not allowed to enter tournament? Because it hurts programmers who try to stand on their own feet, improving their engine based on their own effort. Take my engine for example. Why should I work hard to get a few dozen elo points improvement if someone can come out from nowhere,...

Re: What opening would you like to see and why?

What opening would you like to see played in the next Wch 2008 game between Anand and Kramnik and why? Remember Anand will have the White pieces again in their next game. Okay, I'll go first and say I would like to see a Evans Gambit, why because we should see a nice attacking game that I don't thi...

Re: Strelka = Rybka 1.0 =Fruit 2.1 = Toga?? Oh how disappoin

You're completely wrong.

Strelka is already proven to not contain any part of Rybka code, because Yuri is smart enough to change variables name. He is also smart enough to change the order of variables declaration.

He is completely right when he think he can fool us all.

Re: rybka and plaggerism: has the case been compiled yet

I have a lot of respect for those involved, but I abhor the way they went about their project. Just curious, what exactly did we/they do? It seems to me that whatever genuine efforts anybody had in this were drowned in an ocean of inane argumentation. IOW, neither side was fully to blame for what e...

Re: rybka and plaggerism: has the case been compiled yet

Now YOU DEMAND answers on YOUR TIMETABLE while doing nothing at all other than attack top people in the field personally!! as I said before, it's not a fair trial. And folks here keep screaming...

Re: rybka and plaggerism: has the case been compiled yet

Here are few ideas that you can easily memorize(without talking about code). 1)average between opening and endgame evaluation. 2)evaluating mobilities based on number of squares that the piece can go into them. 3)giving higher weight for mobility of minor pieces. People can clearly memorize more th...
