I tried to d/l Thothfish from the link provided in the 1st post in this thread.

I found a copy of Thothfish chess engine on ...

Re: Utility to remove duplicate positions from a PGN?

I was creating my own opening pgn for engine testing (both Silver suites, some Noomen, some Balsa, some Pohl, some Lc0, some TCEC, some of my own...). I found the duplicates.

Re: Utility to remove duplicate positions from a PGN?

Looks like pgnscanner is the answer. Is it common for it to keep finding absolute or positional double positions, even after they've been removed? The first round, it found 9 doubles. I removed them. Then it found 4. I removed them. Then it found 5. I removed them. Now it found 4 more. The total num...

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
