Re: ProDeo 1.73, but have a little problem!

http://members.home.nl/matador/faq.htm When you are playing eng-eng matches or auto232 make sure you limit the maximum number of moves else PRO DEO might play funny moves or worse crash. For ChessBase this means: Move Limit = 240 For LokaSoft: Max Moves in Game = 160 ----------------- I will try to ...

Re: The near future of computer chess

Well, that is what I mean. Of course I would not enter the 100 engines under my own name. I have many nephews... :wink: One phone call, a couple of technical questions will do. Look... this kind of things are not the problem. Chess programmers are usually not the dumbest people on the planet, there...

Re: The near future of computer chess

Has anyone combed through Ed's software? It makes one wonder. I don't know what is up with Ed, but his program is clearly original and he is a brilliant and hard working programmer. I guess he just thinks there is a new generation of programmer who shouldn't have to be bothered with originality or ...

Re: The near future of computer chess

There is no hypocrisy, you are continuing to propagate the unfair and yes, dishonest, straw-man argument that if you use any idea that is in another program then you are plagiarizing . It's sickening how often people just keep going back to that since there is no other way to make their ridiculous ...

Re: The near future of computer chess

If, as you say, the "new generation" of chess programmers want to participate with copies of the same source, with minor tweaks, eventually, they will become the majority and control the tournament rules. I offered 2 brainstorm ideas to cover that. Subject: Ippolit and related freeware source code....

Re: The near future of computer chess

3. You should take a look at youtube. You find everything. The music and movie industry are helpless. They have given up on youtube long time ago defeated by volume. These are the days of internet, it has come with new realities. You sound like it is OK to steal things. It is not. You can request c...

Re: The near future of computer chess

fortunately, we must be patient...we all know this abuse of influence is ultimately in vain, and ultimately change is inevitable. I hope you understand that as a pre-internet programmer I am not cheering nor looking forward to the inevitable but I do understand the need for change and have quite an...

Re: The near future of computer chess

Ed is suggesting that it's just plain ok to take anybody's program as a starting point and start your own chess project from that, WITHOUT any regard to the rule of law or the licensing or the feelings of those who did not want their own work plagiarized. I pointed out (above) that this is not allo...

Re: The near future of computer chess

If you want to work on app servers, you can join an existing project like Tomcat. If you want to work on compilers, you can join the GCC project and contribute improvements. If you want to work on operating systems you can become a Linux comitter. I don't think anyone would consider you a second-ra...
