Re: DGT Centaur uses Stockfish DD (Stockfish 4.5)

The DGT Centaur uses Stockfish 8.

Their adaptive code might just work thru enabling MultiPV and then choose the 1st , 2nd or 3rd best move, depends what the player played before.

Re: Honey-12 R1

Looks like the Makefile in this release has a bug when compiling for OS X. Using the Makefile from Honey-12 works

make build ARCH=x86-64-modern HONEY=yes

doesn't work

with "arch x86-64" not recognized.

Re: Of course, it is now time for Honey 12

Great news!

Re: Banksia GUI released

Looked into the "Creating a chess opening book" from a PGN base tool.

The tool is missing a "Done" button where as a user I expect that the build-in tool who'd start creating a opening book.

How that tool "Creating a chess opening book" works in Banksia GUI ?

Re: It's here ...Honey X6

@MikeB Can you please explain what's the idea behind your adaptive code? Thanks a lot. I already commented one of your else parts which i understand fully. size_t i = 0; if ( previousScore >= -PawnValueMg && previousScore <= PawnValueMg * 4 ) { while (i+1 < rootMoves.size() && bestThread->rootMoves[...

Re: LC0 for iPad?

I am running apps on the iPad. Apps like "Analyze This" (which uses Stockfish 10), SmallFish (Stockfish also), "Hiarcs Chess", and "Chess Pro" (I believe that's the Tiger engine in there somewhere, but I am not 100% sure of that). The CPU in the iPad Pro is faster than my MacBook Pro and the touch ...

Is anyone working on porting LC0 (if that's the right term) to the iPad? My iPad is my main chess playing/analysis platform these days.
You are using websites on iPad for playing and analysis I guess.

Or you are using apps? Which one ?

Re: Sideloading on iOS now Possible

But thanks for sharing! I totally misunderstood the post at first. The term "sideloading" is misleading ! I though you talk about running an UCI engine binary like on Android thru loading this binary. But that's not the case. Of course you can do your own iOS app and run any GPL software. Not necess...
