Re: ChessBase Online App for Android

It seems to be true. You can choose between Stockfish 8, Fritz 14 and Komodo 8/9 as far as i can tell (and I bet the more recent Komodo engines will also work). But for example Texel - although using Open Exchange Format like Komodo - is not usable. I don't know what the idea behind this decision is...

Re: Sunsetter 9 under Arena GUI

The latest Sunsetter can only play Crazyhouse/Bughouse. You can use Winboard to do so. It doesn't support standard chess. There are very old versions of Sunsetter, that can play normal chess: https://sourceforge.net/projects/sunsetter/files/sunsetter-chess/ Tested "C9d". The UCI Version doesn't seem...

Re: Why Javascript engines are so slow?

The lichess.org local chess engine is no javascript. It's PNACL for Chrome and WASM for Firefox >=v52.0 It allows to run code written in several languages (C++ for Stockfish) in your browser at near native speed. But as you experienced, it's still not 100% as fast as your native engine in your favor...

Re: precompiled XBoard 4.8.0 for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64 bit ?

Re: Man or human being versus asmFishW machine 2017-04-03

This is totally fake. On move 25. Nb5 is 39. out 40. move choice for SF even at depths below 20, and that is also the case at depth 24 where the move has been allegedly played. Literally every other move is a better choice!!! Even if SF played totally random move it would be stronger than that. So ...

Ubuntu: make sure you got the p7zip-full package installed and then

Code: Select all

Re: The first release of the CGR games database

A very weird ZIP format but I managed to unzip it (using 7zip). It just took an unnecessary high amount of time. Have you considered providing the database in SCID format? It occupies 100 MB less space than the zipped PGN file. As for the database: nice stuff. Thank you. Just for your information: T...
