Re: Komodo 13.1 released

Aside from the strength gains, we have added two new skill levels at the bottom and two new skill levels at the top, so old level 0 is now level 3 and old level 19 is now level 22, with 23 and 24 being even stronger, and 25 being unlimited. I have Komodo 13 on android, version 13.02 but it has leve...

Re: Armageddon Openings released

The increase in the elo-spread for PawnPlus with long time is indeed impressive, although the actual number is still lower than the SALC number. If we make the speculative assumption that the trend will continue with even more time, then yes, PawnPlus will show better resolution with more time. But...

Re: Komodo 13.1 suggested parameters for analysis

Hi LK: I just installed latest Komodo. I did not understand this " we have added two new skill levels at the bottom and two new skill levels at the top, so old level 0 is now level 3 and old level 19 is now level 22, with 23 and 24 being even stronger, and 25 being unlimited". It is unclear to whic...

Re: planned weekly komodo vs human series on chess.com

Maybe Komodo team might give chess960 + material odds a try. The disharmony of the pieces offered in chess960 might offset some material deficit. Most top engines play chess960 equally good as standard setup. Didn't you read the previous post? Two of the games will be precisely what you ask, chess9...

Re: Komodo 13.1 released

> We estimate the elo gain at fast time limits from version 13.02 to be around 20 points, for both regular and MCTS versions, and regardless of one, four, or many threads. Hi Larry, it seems the ELO-Boost of mcts is getting considerably slower, (now equal to regular version) so your goal that mcts ...

Re: Armageddon Openings released

I think, your focus is too much on the whitescore/blackscore. For engine-testings and tournaments, the Elo-speading is much more important. Because, the wider the Elo-spreading, the lower the number of games is, which have to be played in order to get results out of the errorbar (and get a statisti...

It is the version that just won the World Computer Chess Championship and the World Software Chess Championship in Macao, plus some small enhancements found during that event. Unlike the past few releases, this time the improvements (since version 1...

Larry, Is there Komodo for IPhone ? Thanks in advance.
It's not out yet, but it is under development. I don't really have any idea when it will be ready.
