Re: Rhetoric 1.4.1 available

Chess engines lack a certain elegance to their moves, because they're engines, not humans, and don't have the capacity to be as strategic. They may appear strategic, but that's only through brute-force calculation. Of course it's impossible because it's an engine, but Rhetoric's moves appear to hav...

Re: I have it ...

Computer chess logic ... I have to update my General ... That is all I think! Problem solved, or not? Not important ... Rhetoric will start in three days with or without a new General! That is fact! Best Frank Frank... I don't know who is your General... But it seems to me that you like the new ver...

Re: Rhetoric 1.4.1 available

Great update. Love the option to change material value. Tested 50% and you're right, it made some real Tal-like sacrifices. It's refreshing that this engine isn't made purely for strength. I have Stockfish, Komodo and Houdini for that, but they play like cyborgs compared to Rhetoric. Thanks! Thanks...

Congratulations for the new version!
How do you run a similarity test?
Thanks.
I dowloaded Don Dailey's simmilarity test. I can't put the link, since i'm using the mobile phone right now. But you can search here the original DD's post.
Cheers

Re: Rhetoric 1.4.1 available

Hi Alberto, It looks very interesting, thanks for the update. I am certainly going to be one of the downloaders. When I will test it is another thing.
