Re: Limiting nodes to reduce engine strength

Not a fan of a depth limit, since they can occasionally be quite "coarse" in terms of time. If the target is weak level against humans then I think that you should use games against humans with known fide rating to decide about elo of different levels.

Re: Lc0 settings for Leela on GPU- Nvidia RTX 2080 Super

I usually test casual engine games at 30m+30s time control. And recently two computer match via Fritz engine cloud with ponder enabled. So 30 minute + 30 second increment in addition to ponder enabled. i7-5960X 4.5GHz and i7-5930K 4.5GHz. So the main hardware is fairly even. Stockfish on 5960X and ...

Re: What is going on with GM Carlsen vs GM Caruana rating?

Arena GUI bug

Finally after using Arena 3.5.1 (build 2861) for many games I got 1 game with the "Arena adjudication.Illegal move!" error. I´m using a DGT board and a modified (tuned to be weak) version of Crafty.
