Re: What are your Favorite Chess GUI's And Why..

I mostly use Fritz 17 for engine vs engine and tournaments, it's just more polished than the free ones. I also like Arena, especially for it's engine installation wizard which will allow you register an entire folder of *.exe's. The fact that other gui's require you to register each engine one at a ...

Re: TCEC has new hardware!

I wonder why though. I mean if you play a match on old hardware vs new hardware wouldn't the results be pretty much the same?

Re: Crafty 25.4y hits Deep Blue's 200M nps on a desktop...

Just curious are the nodes in Crafty counted the same way as they were in Deep Blue? I am no expert, but I was reading this article that explains nps.. https://www.chessprogramming.org/Nodes_per_Second " But whereas comparing different version of the same program is fine, comparisons between differe...

Why ? Who cares if there is a progress of 40 ELO ?

There will be no progress in computerchess by this kind of programming.

Buy a computer twice as fast and use the old version. Will bring more ELO.
Wouldn't the same be true for Lc0 if you could buy the next generation of video cards?

If there were one engine I could bring back and covert to WB/UCI protocols, it would be Marty Hirsch's Mchess. :D
Exactly what I was thinking when I first read the topic of this post. I still use it now and then using DOS BOX

Re: stockfish 10 vs. Mephisto III S Glasgow

Just an fyi, you can download a lot of the Mephisto engines as uci if you wanted to run them on the same hardware to compare.

Fritz 17 - Invalid Parameter in CRT

When creating a new tournament in Fritz 17 I seem to get an error "Invalid Parameter in CRT" quite often. Sometime it's after I have added 1/2 dozen engines or so then the application exits after the error. Anyone else getting this? I saw that there was an update and was hoping this was fixed, but a...

Re: Micah 1.0 64-bit Gauntlet for CCRL 40/40

Hi John, Strange, when I try the Micah 1.0 64-bit engine it's like it's intentionally throwing the game. It leaves pieces en prise etc. The game below is a 10 minute game, no book. Did you have to do anything special to set it up? I feel like I am missing something or I got a bad build from https:/...

Re: New engine releases 2019

Minic 1.09 has been released. https://github.com/tryingsomestuff/Minic/releases/tag/1.09 I can't seem to get it to work. It won't register at all on Fritz 17 using "minic_1.09_mingw_x64_x86-64.exe" on Windows 10. I am not sure what mingw is so maybe that's the reason. It registered in Arena but wou...
