Komodo 9.3 game/x setting.

Post by lkaufman » Mon Nov 30, 2015 5:24 pm

After some experimenting, we have determined that Komodo 9.3 is too conservative in its time use in game/x ("sudden death") levels. Therefore I am recommending that users set Time Usage to 5 when playing such games without increment. In version 9.2 doing so would cause some time forfeits in bullet chess on some GUIs, but it seems fine in version 9.3. This should be worth several elo points. This is NOT recommended for increment play or 40/x type levels, so it will not affect any testing for the well-known rating lists.
