Re: BBC GUI release - PLAY IT ONLINE!

Very nice and pretty-looking GUI! One minor notice thought - as i figured, engine give eval according its own side (ie +200 means engine is winning), but it is not always convenient. I think it is a good idea to add some feature like "show eval from White pow" tickbox later. Gave some thought, but m...

Initial engine piece values: vBishopEG: 315 vBishopOP: 315 vKnightEG: 300 vKnightOP: 300 vPawnEG: 100 vQueenEG: 950 vQueenOP': 950 vRookEG: 500 vRookOP': 500 I did not enter value of the Pawn_Open...

Re: How to rate my engine in CCRL?

I sent you archive with pgns.

Moreover, i took a look into your recent video "BBC 1.1a (with PeSTO tables) crushes VICE 1.0 in ultra bullet (11:5)" and i`m pretty sure there were parts of it were i also saw this bug happen in the games you shown.

Re: How to rate my engine in CCRL?

I am just testing BBC. First results do not show +600 compared to TSCP, though. Thanks you so much Gabor. It shouldn't be +600))) BBC 1.0 Should be +100/150 greater than TSCP The current development version is already as strong a VICE (after tuning evaluation) but I need to do lots of tests before ...

Re: How to rate my engine in CCRL?

Well, when i was getting started on my chess variant AI, it was VERY weak. At that time i was yet to watch VICE video and never heard of this forum. So my engine didnt have Quiescence search, made/unmade moves directly on the UI board (one can only imagine how slow it was), and the only move orderi...

... Hi Maksim, I don't know if you've seen this already, but Wukong has been rated on CCRL's Blitz list. Wukong on CCRL Rating: 1474 Congratulations :) It is not an advanced chess engine (I know it wasn't ever supposed to be), but its rating gives me good hopes for my own engine :) Seeing that such...

Re: Is cloning a hobby?

I was very hesitant in posting Drofa 1.0.0 here, because even though it had over 300 elo more than Shallow Blue (engine that i forked), even with some of the files rewritten completely, i somehow felt that its not entirely different engine. :| Thank you for your engine! I cloned the repo (https://g...

Re: 3 fold repetition scoring issue

Its pretty easy to come up with those positions, if you check result with some strong engine (SF):

fe
k7/p2p1ppp/P5qn/3p4/Q2p2P1/1N5P/5P2/5RK1 b - - 0 1

Blacks best and only move is Ng4 with score 0.00
