OICS new monthly tournament

Post by jshriver » Fri Apr 07, 2017 3:55 am

I love HGM tourneys, and when I ran OICS it was hit or miss. So I'm listening to people and putting it back up, purely fresh from HGM sources.

I'm trying to make a new monthly, not to compete with his, but add as a secondary .

While the server will run 24/7 I wont run a 24/6 mamer auto-add bot like I did before.

It was fun, I had a lot of hardware back then, and could host 16+ bots 24/7 but I can't now.

Always looking for advice :)

I just cloned it, so will take time to get things in order. But hoping for a first tourney this month :)

IF anyone is intersted in "testing" please email me jshriver@gmail.com with asubject "OICS ACCOUNT" so I can set you up.

This is also not for testing, but if anyone wants an account for the first tourney, like HGM, it's purely manual :)

I do still have a couple nice high end machines. I'm completely discreet and will never share ANY engine someone sends me.

I am TRULY grateful to have previously hosted Nightmare and WaDuuttie. Since it's been 2-3+ years as you can see, I never leak anything.

I don't have a static IP for my hardware (except for the server iteself) all engines run on local cluster. But open to adding what hardware I have with any setup/configuration, even offering ssh access for an account to make specific builds based on hardware. But I figure icsdrone or ssh -X is the best option for remote running on local hardware, but open.

Let me know!

My point is, anyone can request and run. If you cannot but want to be included, I do have hardware to spare and will run at you behalf @ your config if you can point me to what you want.

All my cluster is Linux.
Admit it's a lil outdated, but I have a lot ofwhat was nice like 2-3x years ago

Hi Josh,

I did not understand how it should work: is this the same as HGM's, everyone is running on his own hardware, at a given time? This would be interesting for me, as I said, once a month, as an addition to HGM's one.

I guess we need an account. When do you plan do start?

Ditto here. I'd be very interested, and I can definitely run Myrddin myself like at HG's tournaments.

Many of the particpants in HG's monthly tournament would like a second one. Once you announce an actual date then I think you'll have plenty of people wanting a user account so they can participate.

Opinions expressed here are my own, and not necessarily those of the CCRL Group.

Glad to see the interest :)


Still setting up the server, and will make sure people have accounts at least a week before it happens. I'll announce it here.

Will do some test runs as well to make sure my mamer build it happy.

The address is the same as the torrent site. oics.olympuschess.com :)
