Re: Never tested by both CCRL & CEGT (GopherCheck w32)

Post by carldaman » Wed Mar 09, 2016 12:29 am

Where did you download the Gopher_Check executable, Herr Ruxy?

I tried using Daniel Jose's 64-bit binary, but it refuses to make a move in Arena.

Thanks,
CL

My verdict for GopherCheck w32 (a chess engine written in Go) = very close to 1870 Elo points (CCRL 4/40).

Hello !

I must recognize that's a great drama ! :lol:

Serenissimo (near 1,90 m) Ruxy (I renounced to my unexisting Teutonic roots.... :lol: ) knows what's about with this naughty chess engine!

Use (PLEASE !!!) only TC= x seconds/move (for example 8 seconds/move) ! That's all ! This engine graduated only the kindergarten of computer chess.........


Have the supreme day of your existence !!!

Well, thanks again, Grandissimo Ruxy, wouldn't you know it, you were right again! ;) I was able to use Gopher-Check_64-bit as you suggested.

Great to count on your help. :)

Teutonic (maybe?) regards,

Re: Galjoen 0.32 w32 - my first test

Hello Ruxy,
I installed Arena 3.0 on my computer to test your findings, and I found:
1) Galjoen works as UCI engine, but you have to install it manually: Engines/Manage.../Details/Type -> UCI (Autodetect doesn't work).
2) Galjoen recognizes it's own book, but in Winboard mode Arena sends the command "OwnBook=true" instead of the Winboard command "OwnBook=1".
3) Indeed there was a bug in the timemanager (fixed now).

Re: Floyd 0.8 w32 comparative test

Hello !

Conditions:

-TC = 4'+2"
-Hash = 128 MB
-Books = Perfect_2010.abk (Floyd 0.8) & its own book for Nemeton 1.3
-GUI = Arena 3.0
-CPU = Athlon 64 3800+
-OS = Windows XP SP3

Around 2410 Elo points (CCRL 4/40) for the new 32-bit version (+200 Elo face to the previous version.....WOW !).


A question (if possible) to Mr.van Kervinck: how strong (in blitz 4/40) is the last version of Rookie ? Will be nice to know !


Nemeton 1.3 has 2313 Elo CCRL 4/40.

I'm not recently making any changes to Rookie because it has become hard to change. When I made the v3 series I focussed on speed and weight tuning, but now I don't care much about those two as those are solved problems. Also work is quite busy and I travel a lot. Whenever I find time for toying around with machine learning it is easier to use Floyd because it is cleaner. I don't know how each will evolve. Maybe they will merge. Maybe both will stop and I will do another new one. Hard to tell.

Thanks for testing! I hope the games are interesting to observe. I normally only run it on the raspberry pi...
