Re: Arena chess error: BytesRead > 0 | LiesThread.Execute terminated

I think your engine has a bug. After the first "position" command, d2d4 in the PV is not even a legal move because there is no piece on d2. The "bytes read" error seems to come from your engine, so you need to check when this can happen.

Maybe your read buffer is too small for the position command?

The thing that is strange to me is that in equal positions Stockfish always think that stands better, even with reversed colors.
Did you set the contempt parameter to 0?

Win 10 on ARM - Engine Test?

I've cross-compiled my engine for Windows 10 on ARM, but I can't test whether it actually works.
Is there anyone here who has an ARM-Laptop running Windows 10 and who'd be willing to test?
If so, I'll upload the executables.

Re: TRX40 mobos

Does anyone actually own a TRX40 mobo? How does it O/C? Any issues? Here's a review of Dan's board, and it does support OC. RAM is supported up to DDR4-4733, but check Asus' RAM QVL for the exact RAM part numbers: https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-Zenith-II-Extreme/HelpDesk_QVL_Memory/ The fast...

Re: New chess rig

TWhat would your recommendations be for mobo and for 128 GB of 3200 MHz RAM Oh, 128GB as 4x32GB will work with the mobo ASUS AMD AM4 ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi) ATX. It's 8x32GB (as in the original posting) that won't work, but that would actually be 256GB. So one of the numbers had a typo...

Re: Polish users cut off from TalkChess

It's pure founders' decision to add lines of this code into web site configuration, not related to hosting I think what you're missing is that talkchess.com is side-hosted for free on the webspace of chessusa.com instead of a paid dedicated webspace hoster. That's where the hosting issues come from...

Re: New chess rig

I didn't even notice the MB he picked isn't even the right socket for the CPU! Oh, me neither - but yeah, the mobo offers AM4 while Threadripper requires the sTRX4 socket. On top of that, the Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3 cooler is rated for 180W TDP while the 3970X and 3960X are listed with 280W TDP, so ...

Mobo: ASUS AMD AM4 ROG X570 Crosshair VIII Hero (Wi-Fi) ATX
Memory: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 128 GB (8 x 32 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16
That won't work because the mobo has only four RAM slots, like every mobo that isn't a server one designed for server (registered) RAM.

Compilation (same for both GCC and Clang):
-O3 isn't always the fastest. What if you try -O2 instead?
