Re: Testing Stockfish, Lc0, Banksia GUI for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iWatch)

A better os for mobile chess is android. :!: Stockfish is on android much faster as on ios. So interesting info! Look like my knowledge is not up to date since I always think the Android apps would be slow since they run on Java's JVM. BTW, do you have some benchmarks of Stockfish NNUE on some late...

Re: Testing Stockfish, Lc0, Banksia GUI for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iWatch)

Well I could use Banksia for Android as long as it allows Swiss System Chess tourneys and a plug in for engine ratings....it would solve a long backlog in ratings for all of these new (and older) untested android engines....Thanks AR :) :wink: It is a nice surprise if someone can run BanksiaGUI on ...

Re: Testing Stockfish, Lc0, Banksia GUI for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iWatch)

Any chance you can compile Stockfish to run natively on the new MI chip on MacOS? I AM running your new TestFlight builds on iPhone 12 Pro Max and they are brilliant! No bugs so far. Best, Joe As I have understood, the core of M1 is actually the ARM processor for iOS devices. Thus once the SF is co...

Re: New PGN Tag: VariantFamily

Can you explain more: - give examples of Variant/VariantFamily - what extra information/benefits engines/chess GUIs can get from VariantFamily/Variant vs Variant only - if we can simply use a hidden/internal map between Variant-VariantFamily in the code instead of using that external tag in PGN to g...
