other idea is to implement a tournament type of teams like German Bundesliga or Chess Olypiad where engines can play in a team with 8 engines vs 8 engines, like USA vs Germany or Italy vs Russia

again a automactly ELO update for each engine after a tournament would be nice feature !

Version 0.38 beta released - Merry Christmas version

Post by phhnguyen » Thu Dec 24, 2020 9:29 am

Version 0.38 beta released

* Fixed bugs:
  • Setup opening for 2nd rounds of Swiss tournament
  • Can’t set Gaulet as the default choice
* Some small improvements
* New features:  
  • Rating engines via Bayesian Elo method (BayesElo - by Rémi Coulom)
  • Custom score graph
  • Can show full crosstable from the start (no game yet)
  • New themes Metallica and Gold
Rating with the BayesElo method is a new and big feature (we need some more tests and feedbacks) and its results are updated on-fly whenever a new game completed:

Image

If you have a game list in PGN and want to see ratings, just drop that file into BSG to popup the dialog (to see games) then click on button “Stats”, BSG will auto calculate the ratings and display with other stats.

Happy holidays :)

Thanks alot for the custom font color on the score graph, it makes it more readable when I am using the Metallica theme. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

Thank You.

Why is there such a big difference? Is it possible to enter an option for calculating the classic Elo?

Previous versions of 0.38 were not Elo but LOS (Likelihood of Superiority).

https://www.chessprogramming.org/Match_ ... uperiority

When discussing we mostly talk about Elo but not LOS even LOS can be used to compare engines.

LOS is much easier to implement (that is why BSG has it so soon) when Elo/BaysesElo required me a lot of effort to understand and implement.

To clear this confusion, we need one more report, called "Rating".

Its application can be seen at TCEC.
