Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Fixed your tourney, yes. But did not affect the 'weight'. So what did your tourney result tell us about the weight? A couple of posts ago, you claimed that you understood why and how the term "weight" was used. But now you are asking questions about the very same thing again? I answered your questi...

Well, it would appear that one or more of those "fixes" fixed it :)

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

I have no problem with the terminology. The point was why you would expect that it would make the slightest difference for the result of a tourney whether the GUI was light weight or heavy weight in this sense. Because with version 0.9.3 it was slower and more cumbersome which affected those same r...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Not sure what that has to do with being 'lightweight', however. Wether the GUI uses up 1%, 5% or 50% of the time should not affect the tourney result in the slightest. I used the term "lightweight" bacause this was the term Ilari used when referencing the cli vs the gui. So I was attemping to "rela...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

Cute Chess GUI uses the same lightweight libcutechess library as cutechess-cli that is very efficient at running games and communicating with engines. But in fast games, especially if you open the "Active Games" widget when there are many concurrent games, UI updates like animating the pieces and d...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

I find that many GUI's put out different tables. That is why I always use Ordo to select the output that "I" want to see. There was still a really nasty bug causing crashes in tournaments so I've made a bugfix release for 64-bit Windows and Linux: https://github.com/cutechess/cutechess/releases/tag/...

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

I just ran 2 - 3000 game tournaments with 4 engines each at a time control of 10 +.01. The first was with CutechessGUI 0.9.4, the second with Cutechess-cli 0.8.2 After 6000 games the results were all within error bars between the 2 GUI's. So it would appear the CuteChessGUI 0.9.4 is "lightweight" al...

Re: cutechess-cli 0.8.0 released

I would like to attempt to use Brainfish with Cerebellum_Light.bin in cutechess-cli

This book is not a Polyglot book. How can I write that portion of a batch file or change engine.json to have Brainfish ONLY use the cerebellum book?

Re: Cute Chess 0.9.4 released

It would be nice to add an "append" to the create/replace feature of the pgn output.
