Battle of the Forgotten

Post by Carlos777 » Sat Jan 16, 2010 4:58 am

Hi guys,

This is a tournament that started with few engines under Arena just to find a suitable opponent for me to play with. Then, I got more interested in testing low ELO engines. It has been fun so far, looking for information about these engines that few people seem to be interested in, trying to find some that are not longer developed, making them work and looking them play. So, I decided to run a RRx2 tournament with a initial field of 40 engines.

The conditions to participate are:

1. Engines should have an approx. ELO of 1700 or lower.
2. The engine must support incremental time management (1'+1".)
3. Engines should not be buggy (they should be able to play under the rules of standard chess, meaning not making illegal moves and/or crashing.)
4. Engines should not lose frequently on time.
5. Engines should accept to play with ponder off
6. Clones are not allowed (ex. KasparovX, Replicant, etc.)
7. Engines must work under Arena 2.01

After the initial cycle is finished, 15 engines will be replaced by other new 15 and a new cycle will start. Games between remaining engines will not be replayed.
I will remove these 15 engines based on this:

1. Buggy engines (crashes, illegal moves and losses on time.)
2. If there are 2 or more engines by the same author, only the one with less points will remain.
3. The rest of them will be the ones that got more points.

For example: Imagine there were 2 buggy engines, 1 eliminated by having more points than other (being both of the same author,) and the remaining 13 would be the 13 first places.

The conditions of the tournament:

- Pentium D 2.8GHz
- Windows XP 32 bits
- Approx. 64-128 Mb hash
- Ponder OFF
- Time control: 1'+1"
- Own book if available, if not HS-20moves book limited to 10 moves.
- Engines can use both cores
- Round Robin x2

This is a crosstable of the current cycle:

651 of 1560 games played
Buggy engines still in the tournament (I will take a decision about them later)

- Joana DC by Juan Pablo Mendoza (does not accept opponent's short castle and loses by time.)
- Cheoss 0.649 plays illegal moves sometimes, but when not it has a decent style of play.
- Yoda 1.30 does not accept opponent's underpromotion to other piece different of a queen.
- Youk loses on times seldomly I am not sure if the reason is for making illegal moves.

As you can notice, I started testing old versions of Dabbaba, KMTChess and Myrdinn, they are too strong for this tournament, so there is no point in replace them with latest versions. Anyway, latest versions (at the time of the tournament begins) will be used preferably.

So far, these engines are disqualified of the tournament:

Do not support x+y time management:

Chad's Chess 0.15 (this is a pitty, because chad is a nice engine to play with, maybe I will consider to run a gauntlet at 40/1 at the end of the cycles.)

Thank you.

Interesting information about engines in 1800-2000 range of the ratings scale.

Interesting information about engines in 1800-2000 range of the ratings scale.
Hi Swami,

Thanks. I just downloaded your spreadsheet with the results of the engines in your STS tests. Very interesting info. Can you make another one with all engines tested so far?

Best,
Carlos

Edit:
- Surprising results for Booot 4.15 (not in a good way :) )
- The version of Bison is 9.8 or 9.11 ?

Yes, I'm working on it. I hope to get around to finally testing engines in lower order, and add them to the list.

Hi Graham,

I swear I did not see your tournament until now. :lol:
Sorry to name my tourney with the same as yours. :D

Yes, a different concept. I think it would be interesting to some people, at least it is a lot of fun for me. :wink:

Best,
Carlos

I just checked the list, Bison is at 9.6a. Whoops didn't update. Perhaps I will run the suite again with Bison 9.8 and see what the scores turn out to be.

Yes, Booot is one of the very rare exceptions that doesn't correspond well when subjected to test suites testing. Just like Zappa and Smarthink 0.17a with poor time management in bullet.

734 of 1560 games played
Cheoss 0.649 was removed due losses on time (5 out of 14 games = 35.7%,) some times early in the game (apparently illegal moves. BTW, anybody know how to save the debug files automatically in Arena?)

Cpp1 replaced Cheoss.

Buggy engines still in the tournament (I will take a decision about them later)

- Joana DC by Juan Pablo Mendoza (when playing with white pieces does not accept opponent's short castle and loses by time. 4 losses on time out of 25 games.)
- Yoda 1.30 does not accept opponent's underpromotion to other piece different of a queen.

So far, these engines are disqualified of the tournament:

Not working under Arena: (if someone has an idea on how to make them work, please reply)
