I am familiar with idea in aquarium. But this freeaquarium is new to me and it looks like a very good software.giovanni wrote: ↑Thu Jun 20, 2019 9:39 amThanks for your answer, Ferdy. IDEA is probably the state-of-the-art tool for interactive position analysis. Respect to
infinite anaysis, its GUI allows the user to interact with the engine, driving the search along the most promising paths. The mini-maximized search tree is then saved to disk for later use, without losing what has been already calculated when the GUI is restarted.
Its description can be fund here:
Please note that there has been already a very interesting attempt to develop a free alternative IDEA version, but its use is so far limited to a web interface and just to a few engines. Also communication with the engine can be a little tricky to setup. The work is by Mike Rohleder and can be found here:
It seemed like every position with analysis up to a certain depth is saved. These positions can then be used to build a tree. While user is doing infinite analysis positions with deeper analysis are saved and can be updated if there is postion that have deeper depth. Minimax only requires the leaf node evaluation it is just a matter of back propagation and showing it to gui. I think l can do it but this certainly takes a lot of time and effort. I have to implement simple features first.
