what is advantage of having private chess engine ? which cannot be downloaded ,used by others ??

Gian-Carlo gave us Leela for free, so we better don't complain :wink:

Ok, well I figured out how to enter the moves but something seems out of whack. I had it play against the old Mephisto Amsterdam (simulator) on my PC and Cray Blitz just blundered one piece after the other. Cray Blitz played white, the moves were

Re: Cray Blitz

Anyone know how you enter the moves? No matter what way I enter it, it responds the move is illegal. It asks me if it should play white, no matter if I enter "Y" or "YES" it tells me it's my move. Then when I enter a move like d4 or d2-d4 it tells it's illegal. I also tried Nf3 but it said it was i...

Re: Cray Blitz

Many thanks for the interesting link!

But I am more interested in the CrayBlitz version I posted. Would be great to create a winboard compatible version that emulates the speed of the Cray at that times.

Best wishes,
Alex

There are so many methods. Where's the problem ? :wink:
Blocking IP ranges will always prevent some from joining here. And it is more or less useless, because the "bad guys" do also know about the "methods".

Re: Which engines play the most human like at lower levels?

Hello I'm looking for engines that play around 1800-2200 ELO and are not "dumbed down" by making obvious poor moves. Thanks in advance, Gerald I like to play vs. Leela zero nets. With the option Slowmover=0 it plays immediately, and you play simply against the neural net without any calculating. It...
