Re: I think you're going to like this ..

bmi2 for Windows (64 bits) would be nice please!

PS are the nets this uses the same as the ones being used for Stockfish NNUE?

I've installed a version of this from Ed Schroeders post viewtopic.php?f=2&t=74627
with the nn in eval/nn.bin will this work?

Re: XI-r3 Release

Just a quick mention that the versions I downloaded (bmi2) when used in Fritz 17 under Windows 10 for some reason default to WDL
information even though it shows centipawns in the UCI options. Fiddling with this I couldn't get it to show the previous regular
scoring info.

Re: Join the Bullet Chess Campaign

Sorry, no evidence of "stigma". No evidence of "take too much time". I'd rather see longer thought out chess than hyperblitz random!

Re: Komodo 14 released.

Something for Larry, or any of the LC0 people to comment on. I noticed recently on this page https://www.chessvariants.com/programs.dir/zillions/ Mark Lefler is mentioned, is this the Komodo Mark? What's interesting is that they developed a system of rule files for all sorts of chess variants (and b...

Re: What is the best way to obtain the 7-piece tablebases?

You may download them from the FTP server of Bojun Guo (who created all 7 men endgames) at ftp://ftp.chessdb.cn/pub/syzygy. FTP is typically fast and reliable for downloading. On macOS, I use FileZilla (free download from AppStore) as an FTP client. You may select and download some (from 1 to 20) h...

Re: Surprisingly difficult stalemate problem (for some engines)

Just read the earlier posts. This position is still a problem for Komodo 14, hope it can be fixed!

Have also confirmed Deep Fritz 14 find it quickly (along with Fritz 13 and 15). But Fritz 17, no!

Don't have Fritz 16.

Re: Interesting article by Jonathan Schaeffer

I remember years and years ago when I was at uni reading about some of these tournaments. In some ACM journal/magazine which
did a round up of the tournament. Hope they are still available online somewhere? (Yay post 2^7)
