Scorpio & egbb issue (OSX)

Post by Max » Sat Feb 01, 2014 4:15 pm

Hi,
just compiled the latest Scorpio and the Egbb dll on my Mac. But noticed in this test game, that Scorpio could not win a KBNK endgame. All 5-men ebbs are installed.

My scorpio.ini:

Hi Daniel.
I'm building the six pieces with generator, with some difficulty,
but forward. :)

What gives me the problem is compress, for automatic execution. :(
But even I can do it manually.

My question is whether there is any "checksum" or some checklist.
Thank you, Jose.

I forbid anyone from building 6 men by himself :) This has been done for you so download like other bitbases that have been generated "fast" and yet are downloaded via torrent :)
For the record my bitbases are generated in 14 days, a record! I will try to generate one 7-men EGBB using 256Gb RAM if I can.

Yes there is a CRC checksum "compress --crc KRk.w.cmp". Use *.cmp to check all files at once from bash.

Thanks Daniel,

I didn't realize that Scorpio needs some more search time, even with egbbs.

On my i7-system Scorpio calcs about 4 mnps single threaded in this endgame. With 20 or 30 moves in 60 seconds he managed to win (three times out of four) against tough opponents Crafty 23.8 and Cheng 4, but unfortunately not with 40 or 60 in 60", like in my test game.

The problem is that WDL info offers zero help in end-games like KBNK, where every position where white does not obviously hang a piece will be won. And knowing that you must not blunder away a piece doesn't help you finding the mate, or any simple 3-ply search without eval would already be able to do it. So KBNK remains exactly as difficult with or without EGBB.

The use of bitbases likely makes it harder to win KBNK. If they are probed during the searched, it is overhead in return for no information. If they are used to prune branches, it is likely the search won't be able to make progress where without pruning it could. When KBNK is on the board, bitbases should be disabled.

Thanks for your explanations!

This applies for Syzygy-bases too, right? Stockfish with Syzygy-bases didn't always choose the shortest way to win here.
