Re: Stockfish NNUE Questions

Thank you, gentlemen! That's good to know. Anyone have any input on Question #2? Although I'm an ICCF GM, I'm a computer dummy. So, I value what I can learn from you experts at this website. I don't have a computer similar to yours, thus I don't know which one is the best performance. However, I kn...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Is it possible to setup a chess position and have two engines play against each other starting from that position? If not could you consider adding it? I would like to be able to give an old engine knight odds versus a newer engine. Thank you.. Yes and it’s just a quick setup. If you have that posi...

Re: Stockfish question about downloads

You didn't mention your computer/CPU thus we don't know which binary is the best for you. Instead, you may download them all and run the benchmark one by one and keep the one which has no-crash and the highest benchmark. Yes, you must download a network, nn-82215d0fd0df.nnue is verified and recommen...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Why doesn't Banksia GUI make board sounds during Engine-Engine games? To have sounds when engines vs engines you need to turn sound on (on Settings dialog), then in the sound configuration dialog (click to the button next to "Sound" checkbox to open it), tick "Engine moves", "Normal games", "Tourna...

Re: Banksia GUI and randomized book openings for Leela

I don't see the method. Registered over at their BB but it (phpBB I believe) never sent the email to the address of record here. So, if the author of banksiagui.com's apps can address that and comment on setting randomized book openings for Leela, it would be appreciated! Thanks for using and reque...

Re: Banksia GUI released

I was thinking about something like this may be a neat solution. "Syzygy engine path" and "Syzygy adjudication path" is probably fine. Tooltip ideas: It is recommended to store syzygy egtb on a fast SSD. As adjudication only need single probe at root position. HDD/Mechanical hard drive is sufficien...

Re: Banksia GUI released

There is an option in Chessbase to display unplayed transpositions in a CTG book, but when you play engine against engine matches it seems like Fritz ignores these moves. I want Fritz to play these unplayed transpositions to, if they are good moves. If I make a tree from the same games in Aquarium,...

Re: Banksia GUI released

Interesting issue! Frankly speaking, I am so rare to create such that huge tournament. Can you give me a few more info: - what is your OS, CPU and RAM? How many threads does it have? Win7 SP1, Intel Core i5 760 (Nehalem) 2.95 GHz, 4 core / 4 threads, 4 GB RAM. I usually run tournaments in two or th...
