Rhetoric (Dynamic Settings) Review

Hey fellas, I just did a very subjective review of Alberto's new Rhetoric 1.4.3 engine, with material set at 50% (I've called this setting simply "dynamic" for simplicity). Thought some of you might find it interesting. :wink: Especially the way it SMASHED me in one particular game. :oops: Its here ...

Re: Rodent II is out

I do much of the same type of training. These (mostly free) engines are a real treasure to work with and the irony is that most people believe they are just a bunch of "weak" engines and little else . It's hard to find the time to spar and analyze with them but it is fascinating. Thanks for taking ...

Re: Rodent II is out

Thanks for sharing your new settings, Brendan. The posted Alize and Remy settings appear identical for some reason. What could be the difference? Rodent (with its personalities) has been a favorite of mine. I really like its newly improved 'king hunter' settings. Take a look at Rhetoric (an engine ...

Re: Rodent II is out

Brendan, for a working game display it is enough to delete a space in pgn tag. I can't wait to learn Your Cognac settings, these games are a joy to watch. I've now done the review and shown what settings I used for the 3 personalties I have been using. :wink: http://chessncognac.com/chess-engine-re...

Re: Rodent II is out

EDIT: I wonder if a moderator could help my incompetent self out and fix the pgn tags in this post. I don't know why they didnt work. :( Pawel, I've really been enjoying my time tweaking new personalities with this engine. You've got a winner here! Here is poor Maverick (as we know, a great engine ...

Re: Chess Engine Review: DisasterArea 1.54 (Cognac Settings

Thanks for adding those details, Marek.

Do let me us know if anybody has nice results with this one, I'd love to see! :D

Just don't waste your time testing it against engines 2600+, my intention was to make a crazy, sparring partner for MYSELF (about 2200 ELO or so). ;)

Chess Engine Review: DisasterArea 1.54 (Cognac Settings ;) )

Hey guys, Last night I did a review of DisasterArea with an emphasis on some settings I created (much in the style of Zappa Mexico Dissident Aggressor, but different still). Thought someone might find it interesting. Have a look if you like. ;) http://chessncognac.com/chess-engine-review-disasterare...
