Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.50, supporting Fischer Random Chess

Stefan is right. The delay is about 11 seconds. I saw such a behaviour only in an old version of Wasp by John Stanback . He is a very nice guy. Maybe you can contact him in this case by mail. I am sure he will help us. It is no mystery. Its right here Ill adjust that down to 2500ms, as well as the ...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.50, supporting Fischer Random Chess

I have added the currmove and currmovenumber output to Ethereal.

No reason to update from V11.50 -> V11.52, unless you specifically want to see the new information

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.50, supporting Fischer Random Chess

Once again the question for supporting the uci option currentmove. Any possible way you could turn on the UCI currentmove deal? I am going to add that right now, and run a quick test to make sure I broke nothing. I will provide a new set of binaries soon. It will be tagged as V11.51, but you are fr...

Re: Test Position

Thanks a lot for the new version, Andrew! So SyzygyProbeDepth applies to the highest cardinality for the Tablebases. IE, if you have a 6 man table base setup, If Ethereal probes, then one of the following is true: 1) The current depth is greater than or equal to SyzygyProbeDepth (Setting 127 makes ...

Re: Test Position

Ethereal with Syzygy Probe Depth set to 127 (max.), which it doesn't seem to care much about neither :) So SyzygyProbeDepth applies to the highest cardinality for the Tablebases. IE, if you have a 6 man table base setup, If Ethereal probes, then one of the following is true: 1) The current depth is...

Re: Official Release of Ethereal 11.50, supporting Fischer Random Chess

Is the SyzygyProbeDepth parameter's default value of zero optimal for 5-men on a typical SSD ? Yes. Even for 6 man, if using an SSD, I would probably set SyzygyProbeDepth to be zero. I bought a (cheap) SSD when testing 6man support, and I showed elo gains and no lost speed using SyzygyProbeDepth=0 ...

Elo estimates are pending. I will post them as soon as they are complete.

Official Release of Ethereal 11.50, supporting Fischer Random Chess

Hello all, After five months since the last release, I'm happy to say I have something new to share with you all in an official capacity. I have taken some time away from Ethereal's development, but for now I seem to be back with a vengeance. In addition to general improvements and gains in elo, thi...

Re: FRC / Chess960 -- Some Lessons I Learned

involves. I'm always scared to push things like this, since something may break no matter how careful I am, but I plan to push this before Version 11.50. Hi Andrew, So if I read this correctly there will be two versions in the near future - basically 11.25 with FRC support, and then 11.50 later ? S...
