Re: Komodo 5 release now available!

If i want to measure the ability of a chess engine i want to see how it treats all kind of positions and all phases of a game: opening, middlegame, endgame. Then you have to let it play from opening, middlegame and endgame positions. Otherwise you will always test its abilitiy to play the opening, ...

Re: Komodo 5 release now available!

Larry, you must excuse me if i tell you again, but supporting chess960 you would have an exact estimation of the strenght of Komodo without opening book. Maurizio, excuse me too, if I tell you and anybody else who want's to hear it one more time from me and to anybody who does not: Without book fro...

Re: Endgame test position

The black king can grab pawn c6, after which c7-c5-c4 removes the white stalemate. Probably not the result Arpad expected... Yes, that's a surprise to me! :lol: Ooops! :) Maybe we should trust in engines' evals sometimes yet! :oops: But then again, at corrected position or at the one with the hole ...

Well, Arpad, not having tried long time computing with 6MOB on and nullmove off, but as far as I've seen till now, I'd say no.

That's a real good one again, congrats to the author

Re: Critter 1.6 released!

I'm getting a lot of crashes in the Deep Fritz 13 GUI. Specifically, when a tactics test suite is run Critter will reach position x and stop showing analysis. Under task manager it's still running, but the engine display box is blank. Sometimes when I try to close Fritz it can't because Critter won...

Here is Shredder-GUI's output with Rocinante counting 1 minute each trial at 1, 2, 4, 8 and 12 cores fr...

Re: Rocinante 2.0 Release

If you have an option in Shredder to see the exchange GUI-engine, send me a PM and I'll dig in it. Hi Antonio! Thanks for the prompt answer. About Shredder I know the logfile only, but in case Rocinante did not answer, only "waiting for Rocinante" is written several times together with the graphica...
