Re: best server for computers to play variants currently?

Yea, it's real easy to get a game against stockfish. lichess has stockfish built in, and it's available for download. But that gets boring pretty quick, and there is no human involved to chat with during the games. That was actually one of my favourite parts back when FICS was variant central, gett...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

Well, in engine-engine games WinBoard would sent a "computer" command to both players (after the variant and level commands) to inform them their opponent is an engine, and this is a configurable command, which could be altered though the -computerString option (e.g. to send a hard-coded egtpath co...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

Another difference is that UCI2WB does not capitalize syzygyPath when it tries to set it, but according to the UCI specs this should not matter, as option names are supposed to be case insensitive. I tried this in cmd mode and does not matter it still accepts it so this is not the problem. The diff...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

The other thing seems to be a Stockfish problem; it first sees 145 EGT, but then it has second thoughts and reports it sees none. Could be that one is for the first path you give, and the other for the second. Not really as i gave just one path. I just asked for how to handle 2 or more without usin...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

.... Like Ferdy says, you might not have permission to write in the WinBoard folder when running WinBoard. Sometimes attempts to write in a folder that WinBoard considers 'public' (like the Program Files sub-tree) are redirected to some user-specific 'roaming' folder instead. Then they are written,...

Re: Winboard.debug file missing.

Oh and also why Stockfish does not use syzygy tablebases in Winboard with this command? :cry:
"stockfishx64-modern.exe" -fd "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinBoard-AA\WinBoard\WinBoard\Stockfish" -fUCI -firstOptions "SyzygyPath=E:\syzygy"

Winboard.debug file missing.

I use the Winboard 4.9.191026 and as it seems i'm not able to create a Winboard.debug file! I try to put -debug in engine options e.g bihasa32.exe -debug /fd="C:\Program Files (x86)\WinBoard-AA\WinBoard\WinBoard\Bihasa32" /variant="gothic" as also in "Additional Options" in the start with /debug as ...

7-piece available in let's check, just not fully implemented. A winning position for white show up as "+1" and winning for black "-1".
Are you sure?
Try this:
[d] 8/2k5/3b4/7R/1P2n3/2P5/8/2K5 w - - 0 1

I get with "let's check":
Rh4 0.00
Rh3 0.00
Rh2 0.00

while white is winning with Kc2 or Kb2.

I'm considering another ASUS Rog RTX 2080 Super for black friday. How much gain can i expect over single 2080 Super?
Enhanced Leela performance.
About 20-30 % plus.
Much more. I think 85 % to 95 % is to be expected.

Can somebody show me how to find the 7 pieces with Lets Check?
I asked and they said the feature is not yet implemented.
Go figure :D
But they said very soon will be added via an update.
