Re: Ferret 1.00 v258 - program from 1995

Ferret could be a good candidate for further dedicated chess computer developments.

Gerbil by Bruce Moreland and Tom Kerrigan chess program were easy chess engines made for programming beginners.
Yes, Gerbil was open source but was way weaker than Ferret !
Of course. Those engines were didactical and made for beginning chess programmers

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

We do not need the pgn if only the results count. It would be enough to write down the result 1:0, 0:1 or 1/2 if elo is the target. The game score information is unimportant if the target is winning. If the target is the result, we also would not need to watch a soccer game, a tennis match or a car ...

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

For YOU chess is about winning, no matter how you win, For ME chess is not about winning, it is about HOW you win. If for you chess is about winning chess, why don’t you let stockfish play against itself with thrice as much computation time ? That would be enough to win. And since you are not intere...

Re: Whatever is current - Amazing Leela

Book theory is unimportant.
Moves and plan in a game count.
I still think LC0 versus stockfish is boring,
Stockfish is too stupid.
Let stockfish compete versus Komodo or Houdini. They deserve it,
But LC0 is about chess.
And not about elo shit,

Re: Lc0 question

The idea of LC0 is not to win against stockfish, The idea of LC0 is to play a better chess. A chess on a different quality level. Not the stupid machine chess stockfish is doing, Why would anyone feel the need to do a race with stockfish ?? The competition between LC0 and others is not about elo. It...

Re: Lc0 question

I wonder why the people need this race between Stockfish and lc0.
Isn’t it enough Stockfish and Komodo and Houdini do this race ??
