Re: Vajolet 2.1 released

Thank you for looking at these minor issues, Marco. I think it would be a good idea to raise the threads and hash limits to the max allowed by the x64 architecture (or x64 Windoze, at least ;). In a couple of years 128-core/1TB RAM servers may become commonplace, no reason why your engine should not...

Re: (just for fun) Crafty 25.0 JA UCI

Here is link to new Crafty Uci JA builds. <...> http://tinyurl.com/j4jyuws Good job on the latest x64 build, Jim - works almost perfectly in the Fritz 15 GUI now. When Jose posted his example build at the start of page 2 of this thread his exec allowed changing the number of threads but the engine ...

Re: Vajolet 2.1 released

I am impressed with the low branching factor as well. There are some issues when running the POPCNT exec under Chessbase GUIs, though - tested with the latest Fritz 15 GUI version. 1) THREADS is capped to 8. Is there any reason for it? I'd expect a Lazy SMP engine to use as many as possible. 2) Max ...

Re: Stockfish 7 beta 1

A minor bug report: the engine name is reported as "Stockfish 7Beta1 ..." - a space is missing between "7" and "Beta". Or is that due to some stringent text-string limitations for UCI execs?

Re: Fritz 15 - underpromotions of pawns

I prefer "Normal" for Single-click Entry and don't use Premove.
Neither option will auto-underpromote, AFAIK.

Here's the HTML version of the Fritz 15 manual - loads faster and easier to navigate than the PDF.

Re: Fritz 15 is unsuitable for analysis.

IMHO you omitted the last position. Why? Bernhard I didn't recognize "Selbstpatt durch Unterverwandlung" as a link to a position (the other four links were in the internationally-recognizable "player 1 - player 2, location, date" format).

Re: Test position Kings Gambit

Only mid-tier hardware (Dual Xeon X5670 / 2.93 GHz / 12-core / HT off / 48 GB DDR3-1333) here, I'm afraid, but to make up for that I don't mind letting the analysis run a little extra time on an interesting position (esp. one from a King's Gambit). Here is the short summary of my results from Komodo...

Re: Fritz 15 is unsuitable for analysis.

is Fritz 15 able to solve the problems which are mentioned on http://www.herderschach.de/Training/Online/index-tr012.html (chapter "Unterverwandlungen")? As far as my (rudimentary) German allows me to see, that Unterverwandlungen section deals with four examples of underpromotion. I don't know whet...
