Re: LeelaFish w/ Houdini 6 tactical vs LeelaFish w/ SF 2019030520 BMI2

... I do have a questions ? Is either of these two programs stronger than AB Houdini 6.0 64 Bit or the latest AB Stockfish ? What I am trying to find out is if the NN inclusion made either of the AB programs stronger? It seems so, yes, but not by a lot. I used SF9 as the aux engine for Lc0 20.2 w/ ...

Re: A repository for commonly used free computer chess apps, engines, opening books, and utilities

Are Sedat's "Top50, Top 100, etc." books different than his Balsa Top 50, etc., (which have already been uploaded to this repository)? Yes, they are different. I can't find these suites on his website. I share them, in case you want to check them out: https://ufile.io/mahf1 Added them . Thank you

Re: A repository for commonly used free computer chess apps, engines, opening books, and utilities

Thanks! In Engines section, I would include Laser 1.7 In Apps section, Cutechess GUI and Winboard should be included. In Opening Books, I would include Sedat's Top50, Top100, etc. Good suggestions. I've added CuteChess and Winboard. Are Sedat's "Top50, Top 100, etc." books different than his Balsa ...

Re: Komodo - Can I turn on MCTS w/ a command line switch?

That setting seems to have worked. I had the aux engine log at level 10 verbosity and verified MCTS is working. My settings for LeelaFish, using Komodo 12.3 as the aux, are "threads=4;hash=1024;use mcts=true" If you set this up, too, remember to use time controls that average > 5 seconds to take adv...

Komodo - Can I turn on MCTS w/ a command line switch?

I’d like to use Komodo MCTS as LeelaFish’s auxiliary engine. Am I able to turn MCTS on w/ some sort of command line switch? As an example, I tell Houdini to use tactical mode by feeding “tactical mode=1” to LFish’s parameters. Thanks

Maybe using arena 201
Arena 2.0.1 fixed the problem I was having.

A repository for commonly used free computer chess apps, engines, opening books, and utilities

There are so many good computer chess programs, test suites, engines, opening books, and utilities out there. Finding them is sometimes hard. Links are frequently dead-ends or the program is so old, the link is no longer valid. I've uploaded some of the common or hard-to-find programs, test suites, ...

Re: Trying out the Leela Hybrid engine (NN with AB)

Hi KillerDucky. Your project is very interesting. But... The biggest weakness of LC0 is endgame and tactics. Leela handles other elements well, and in the positional game she outperforms the classic engines. I have tested eigenmann (100 positions) and AH_tactics (250 positions). Stockfish 10 plays ...
