Re: OKE - Opening Knowledge Engines

Lc0 and threads, something strange. set THREADS=x works of course for engines except for Lc0. I checked the logfile, the uci command is ok. Then I checked Arena, doesn't work also, always runs 1 thread whatever the setting. Then I checked ChessPartner and Lc0 runs on the number of threads given. No...

Re: McCain X4 Release Final

Bianries ( all flavors) , source and more details will be found at the link below. I will be updating the details throughout the day, but in summary : McCain can be used with four polyglot opening books, with book 1 , should be a very focused book based on player or opening, book 2 is wider and for...

Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

My suite is rough and unpolished. Question about your suite, how long does it take (an estimation is also ok) to analyze your 200 positions at (say) depth=5 with a 256x20 NN on your (GPU) hardware. Not sure about depth, I am testing at fixed time, but depth=5 is really low for current Lc0 on my GPU...

Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

My suite is rough and unpolished. I guess 10% of my solutions are wrong, and another 10% dubious. But seeing Lc0 at longer times on strong GPU solving about 80%, I get confidence in both: my suite is not totally useless AND in that Lc0 in the openings is a positional phenomenon . I guess the openin...

Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

But to me the only reason for a test- suite to get outdated was, if it was solved too easily and too completely by new arising engines. No reason to update because a single one new engine doesn't perform good enough for some fans of the new engine. That's pretty unreasonable to Dann & Swami conside...

Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

There never was an ultimate test-suite. Best thing that can happen to STS is to revisit it again with the current tops and then it will be outdated again in about 4-5 years. There never will be an ultimate test-suite. But to me the only reason for a test- suite to get outdated was, if it was solved...

Re: STS rating v13.1 for Lc0 0.21.2 with nodes = 1

Even my crap suite is better. Ah, now I finally yet did get your point. Yes of course, you're right. Your crap suite is the very best for crap results, but then again, that I never doubted. :) By the way, what are you talking about geniuses like Tsvetkov? I thought we were talking about people like...

Re: Polyglot 64-bit

Yes, I've been finally been able to run it. Next week I'm getting 32GB more of RAM, I'll test the upper limits of this thing then. Cool. It looks like it suffers from the same limitation that polyglot_tolerant has: it doesn't use virtual memory. This, added to the normal polyglot behaviour of doubl...
