Re: Place to find correct perft result from a fen position

https://github.com/TerjeKir/EngineTests

Re: Classical Stockfish

There are some patches for the handcrafted eval, but using the newest SF without NNUE on is likely worse than using the last SF before NNUE was added, as everything is now tuned to work best with NNUE, even the handcrafted eval. Somewhat incorrect. The handcrafted eval is tuned for the highest stre...

Re: CoronaVirusChess

Even as a european it's extremely obvious that the joke was about Trump. Insane response by chrisw imo. Maybe try "what do you mean?" first, next time :?:

Tests now run on each engine placed in the engines/ folder so no need to edit scripts to test different engines. Mate test now uses all the .epds from depth 1 to 8. Fixed missing...

I always wanted to make external so I could compare results to other engines, to see how my engine was doing :) You're welcome :) Weiss also had these internally (probably inherited some of them from VICE)...
