Put Leela too.
Leela at depth=1 makes no sense only at time control.

Reason, the play-outs.

Hence low similarity by definition.

Re: Similarity Report 2019

As for a good laugh, in the 80's when I was new to the scene I was asked to handover my 6502 assembler source code to the ICGA for inspection and so I printed to whole thing and gave it to 2 ICGA officials. 10-15 minutes I was called back and they said it was okay.

Re: Similarity Report 2019

... especially since this is not a certified tool of any kind and no one knows exactly how to interpret the results. With your 7 posts here so far you might have missed a lot of history. The SIM-test is around and in use for almost 10 years by now and its possibilities and impossibilities have been...

Re: Similarity Report 2019

Then I think it should be moved back to General, EO threads should be only about source code discussions (as the description of the subforum says.) And this thread should possibly be moved to forum help and suggestions. I questioned the setting up of the Engine origins forum all those years ago... ...

Re: Similarity Report 2019

But it is against the historic perspective why EO was created, the 2009-2011 chaos of overwhelming R/F posts. What was new back then is hardly a topic nowadays as knowledge increased. Generally speaking, the community (chess programmers) included is much more tolerant now. 2019 isn't the same situat...

Re: Similarity Report 2019

To Ed and Harm: Got it. Thanks to you both for clarifying. :) When this forum was created back in 1997 there was only section, this main section. In 2000 CTF became a sub forum. As volume postings increased people got annoyed by folks posting match results and so the tournament sub forum saw the li...

Re: Similarity Report 2019

I treat complaints as confidential, and was not planning on changing this policy. People must not feel impaired by fear for petty harrassment in retaliation for flagging wrong-doing. By the nature of things it are the most aggressve and viscious members that violate rules, and have a tendency to bu...

Re: My failed attempt to change TCEC NN clone rules

My argument is that I don't see the difference between basing a program on Alpha Zero and renaming it Leela Leela Zero was named "Leela" Zero because it was based on Leela's code. A program that already existed since ~2008. It used the method from the Alpha "Zero" paper and that's indeed where the ...
