With the right net Ethereal 13.00 commercial could be strongly improved
Ethereal 12.75 sse3 github with Zeus.net is already stronger than Fat Fritz 2.0 (Chessbase, Stockfish 13 FF 2.1 github version is much stronger) and Dragon 2.0.
Please Andrew, unlock NNUE on the free version, to let testers to experiment. If you like I can give you all the games 12.75 NNUE games + Zeus.net (used also by AI-15) to study why with alien nets Ethereal become so strong, and rebuild your own net.
I think that testing 2 versions of the same engine is not enough, the performance must be calculated considering all the best engines availables.
PS: @Stefan Waiting for your SPCC accurate ranking with the "alien nets" with 6000 games, if possible
Now switching from Arena 3.5.1 to Banksiagui 0.46 that is more stable on engine matches.

"With the right net Ethereal 13.00 commercial could be strongly improved ", this is technically true, but when you say it a reader will take it to mean that they can use a different net, one from Stockfish, in Ethereal. This is not the case. It will not work. They are not compatible. The architecture is different. The quantization is different. The weight layouts are different.
I am not "unlocking" NNUE on the free version. It is why there is a commercial version. This would be like asking the Komodo team to "unlock" NNUE by back porting it to the K12 version that is free.
I have absolutely no interest in the results of Ethereal 12.75 using Stockfish networks. The entire point of making that version (Etherlito, a jab at Houdini and Fire), was to PROVE how trivial it was to socket in a Stockfish network and make your engine appear as if it knows how to play chess, when really you've done nothing but replace the majority of it.
