Re: "Agressive Chess" not equal to Lethal chess.

Once and again a thread appears with the following issue: which engine past or present could be lined as the most aggressive in his playing behavior?

Seriously, I am not kidding...
Critter 0.90 is not Aggressive at all. It is just tactically Strongest. Aggressive is Stockfish (Specially 1.8/1.9) and Zappa at King Safety Eval = 500.

Re: Another strong engine

+35 Elo stronger than Houdini 2 ? Wow ! surely not a clone :wink: :roll: Seems more than likely that they used the tool you created to tune Houdini's parameters and make it stronger, based on what "Om" has posted. That would seem much more plausible than having reverse engineered it. Yes, I am invo...

Re: Another strong engine

The beta copy of Matrix 3000 that I received is a clone of Houdini 1.5a x64. I did a binary compare and I only see a few changes like program name and some UCI options (Hash , Probe Depth). It still lists Robert Houdart as the author :evil: :evil: :evil: True. A hex edited Houdini 1.5a So you told ...

Re: Another strong engine

Bit early for April Fools... http://www.chess2u.com/t5250-new-matrix-3000-50-elo-stronger-than-houdini My gut feeling is that it's either a complete hoax or a modified and renamed Houdini. :wink: And you are dead right.
