Re: 87% of the poll voted that SF will win Tcec Sufi 19.

It has been clear for sometime now that the unbalanced book is very unfair to Lc0. TCEC does it for the sake of entertainment, but drawing any conclusions from it doesn't make any sense. This SuFi and last one have been all about who can convert better given a position with a +1 advantage. If every...

Re: Linux friendly engines at all levels

Could you replace std=c++11 with std=c++14 on line four of the Makefile? Works perfectly! Thanks for the help and swift replies. I have updated the repository! I have updated my list, unfortunately I cannot edit my post anymore. I would be great if there was a possibility to edit in such cases. win...

Re: Linux friendly engines at all levels

I suspect this is the issue: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/31689972/why-isnt-the-operator-of-a-stdarray-temporary-constexpr In this case the easiest solution is to do something I have been considering anyways, which is update to C++14. Could you replace std=c++11 with std=c++14 on line four of...

Re: Linux friendly engines at all levels

Winter belongs on that List. Not yet. It doesn't work with MacOSX + clang, yet: make clang++ -c -DNDEBUG -O3 -flto -Wall -Wno-sign-compare -m64 -march=native -std=c++11 -Isrc -Isrc/general -Isrc/learning src/general/magic.cc -o src/general/magic.o clang++ -c -DNDEBUG -O3 -flto -Wall -Wno-sign-compa...

Re: Winter

I don't really want to post many individual games here, but I just replayed a miniature from Graham's Amateur Division 2 that shall be among the exceptions. I'm not sure when I last saw a game with this many pawn sacrifices! [Event "Computer game"] [Site "GrahamCCRL.dyndns.org\\82nd Amateur D2.e1e"]...

Re: Linux friendly engines at all levels

Here is a list of engines with "perfect unix conformity". They fulfil the following requirements: 1) Sources in GIT 2) Easy "make" in Linux and MacOSX. 3) Complete reliability over many thousands games. You will be surprised that I could only find 15 engines so far: Engine Rating Version Pr GIT-Url...

Re: Knight Sac by Thinker 5.1c Passive - Does Your Engine Play It?

Interesting test position! I threw it at Winter dev and it seems to change its mind a couple of times, but generally is trying to give a piece in various ways. The only depths where it isn't clearly trying to sac a piece with white are the first two. PV for depth 3 is 1.e5 dxe5 2.Nxf7. It also likes...

Re: Winter

Thanks for the new release Jonathan! I tried the ancient and the older compiles here and get around 195-200 kn/s on my old quadcore from startpos (d16-d22). How fast is this compared to Winter 0.8? I am expecting it to be considerably more than it was previously. Thanks, I am not interested in a Wi...

Re: Winter

Thanks for the new version. Does version 0.9 use an internal nn ? Yes, it has an internal NN. It is a very small network so the weights are actually hardcoded at the moment. This has been the approach since Winter started using an NN back in version 0.6.2 and was mostly based on passed experiences ...
